For the past month I’ve been working on this essentially “crossover” thing I can’t even look at it anymore, I’m both happy and tired of it XD (And I mean that in the working sense, haha.)
I’ve been watching DARLING in the FRANXX this season, something I hadn’t done in ages for an anime series. I know it has its…well, plenty of detractors, but I for one really love it even with its flaws. I haven’t been able to get over the fact that, much like a couple of people, I noticed that Zero Two (the pink-haired character) was a type of callback to Lum from Urusei Yatsura. Calling her love interest “darling”, two horns and being the “alien” of the group? Forget Evangelion, guys! A series from the 70s is where it’s at!
Anyway, I wanted to do a full-blown picture after I graduated, just to get my old routine going. Unfortunately the “very slow at working” syndrome struck again, as it had in this past/last year of grad school, though in my defense it’s because I decided to a) do two versions, reflecting the two major arcs Darlifra has had and b) I forgot about the bunch of kids jeezus christ. I sketched Nana and Hachi too, before I decided it quits on adding more elements XD Doing a quicker style of coloring didn’t help either, hahaha… BUt I’m still happy because there were a couple of things I learned and re-learned, and I managed to still continue my experiment of combining Clip Studio Paint with my usual Manga Studio / Photoshop setup.
…Maybe that last part is why I’m taking so long LMAO.
Clip Studio Paint, why do you hate me and are always so slow.
And yes, I re-created that logo and made new letters just for the FRANXX part. That part was fun but also agonizing XD
But it looks like you had fun with this crossover's planning! I know the feeling of not wanting to look at something anymore, though.
