Summer Sunshine

By SulfuricAcid

"April! May! June! July!" ♪♫♪ [link]

I started to work on this picture last week because Germany was experiencing an unexpected heat wave, and it was incredibly hot! So I thought "Hmmh, what would the Academy girls look like in their bathing clothes?" And so, this picture came to life :D
Since I actually planned to have at least uploaded the 3 first chapters of Academy by now & launching the website at the end of April, I also thought about a Summer Soundtrack- So, the song above will be the girls' song. I don't have a cover yet, I'm also not sure if I should include the Digimon (if so, it'll be plenty of work!) and I first have to finish the remaining BestPartnerSingles. But plans are plans, so whatever :XD:

So, this pic basically resembles a polaroid snapshot some of the boys might've taken at a day out of the Academy. I included Mika this time! *yaaays*
And please don't be too harsh with your critique on the bathing clothes, I honestly just sketched the things going through my mind.
Unfortunately, Shiver looks a bit too busty for her 15 years of age (that's why she wears a swimsuit instead of a bikini, because I wanted to emphasize her younger age)-> epic fail -_-'
Hopefully you don't mind! I think she looks pretty nontheless ^^'
Another thing disturbing me is Jelani's hair, which came out a bit too long. But since she's a hairstylist, one could at least pretend that she wears extensions or something like that xD'
The reason, Mika blushes is because she's rather shy and intrverted and probably feels a bit uncomfortable being photographed in a bikini.
Also, since I was too lazy to shade everything I just shaded hair and skin. I might add a bit more shade when I got more time, but that's beyond the stars u_ú

I know I've only made group pictures with the girls until now, but I'll definitely work on something for our boys as well!

Hope you like it :wave:

Two questions:

1-When are you going to continue with Digimon Academy?

2-Have you thought about a name change?  (Digimon Academy is kinda common in

I've been wanting to do something like this with my Origins chars for a while, just haven't had any inspiration DX...

I know what you mean by Digimon-style proportions... X.X

Haha, thanks for the comment :D Pics like that are always funny to draw!
But yeah, I still mess up the proportions xD' I guess it can't be helped!

I've gotten a lot of bipolar weather over here in KY :XD: It's finally starting to be hot again LOL

But LOL Mika in a bikini. It's cute!!! :D

(Come to think of it, I never decided what type of swimsuit she would wear LOL) Bikini should be a nice change :XD:

Haha, I'm glad you like it :blowkiss: I think it looks cutre on her, it's more the sporty-type of bikini.
