A quickie from this morning…

…Or at least, it was supposed to be a quickie. Video game characters these days – they’re so darned detailed. What happened to the days of Italian brothers with color-coordinated overalls, huh? Or cute animal characters buck-naked save shoes and gloves? Sora I’d all ready drawn once before, so most of his detail-age have been committed to memory. But it took me near two hours to scrounge up references on Kairi alone – and even then, I ended up using cosplayers for it. ^^;

Anyhow. Again, a quickie… sorta’. :XD: Hope ya’ likes! Thanks for peekin’. :D

Kairi's face is great. She's all like, "Boys, boys, boys..." :no:

My only question is this, and its not your pic but Sora's race has big feet, i say his race, cuz they aint human, not with those huge things, I wonder why they did that to him and the others, none of the other characters in the whole game, video or disney, (Except Goofy, but thats just the way he is) has those big feet.

Guess we may never know

Spoonful0fcats Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2006
Oh, I simply love your style, it's very unique!

haha, yes, I miss those simple outfits our favorite characters would wear. I myself feel i have to rack my brain sometimes to come up with an intricate/detailed design. I guess as humans it's only natural to want and want more, even for more detailed outfits(with tons of belts/zippers/etc) on characters in games, movies, cartoons, etc XP

Nice picture, looks really good.
Tia-chan Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2006
Yeah apparently it's really difficult to find refrences for Kairi.

I enjoy how Sora and Riku are behind Kairi just being boys.
XehenShadow Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2006
Cute! And you call this a quickie! Better then anything I could do all day! And you have a point with the detail and what not...and the whole reference pic thing...

I've gotta :+fav: this!
Storyweaver1 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2006
This is a very cute scene. Sora and Rikku play fighting, with Kairi between them. The coloring is awesome
LeggomyEdo Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2006
My friend totally bought this at Akon 17. I bought the Sora one and it's on my wall now.

I love your style! Its amazing!

Just one complaint: the skin tones all match. also, they are a little tanner than they were in the game. Oops, that was two complaints! now I'll go whip myself like a DeVinci Code monk ^ ^
dudeof777 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2006

Kairi's skirt is becoming shorter every game (yeah "EVERY" means 2 games in my world -__-).

I love your style - I really like how they look :)
And I agree with you. Whatever to blue hedgehogs with sneakers, lol?

Blizzardfox Featured By Owner May 29, 2006   Interface Designer
Another amazing work! You're an awesome artist. I like Riku's job of pushing Sora out of the way.
Psycho333 Featured By Owner May 28, 2006

Mensaman Featured By Owner May 24, 2006
heheh, stupid advances in technology, I really like the interactions between the characters, especially Riku's expression...
Priceman Featured By Owner May 23, 2006  Student General Artist
For you this is a quicky, for me this is a weeks work. Excellent job as usual. It's great to see quality KH work on DA.

P.S. I agree with the detail statement. Mario and Luigi where always easy to draw.
