“That’s it! That’s not what we have to do!”
“I don’t understand.”
“Don’t you see? We’re doing the same thing with no results! We don’t have to do it!”
“Just follow me and do everything I do! You’ll figure it out as we go along.”
Guess who got a brand new sketchbook?
A few years ago I had an idea for a Kingdom Hearts fanfic involving Xion, Sora, and nonDisney characters. Amazingly enough, I don’t hate the idea and would like to do something with it one day. 1:
This was more difficult than it should have been, but was still fun to do. I almost never draw people from the sides, crouching, or on top of something, so this was a fun little challenge. Sora could have looked a little better, and I missed a few aspects of his design, but other than that, I think he looks great.
Xion’s color pallete came from this. Since Sora’s design was originally based on Mickey Mouse, Xion’s outfit should look a famous nonDisney character. Originally I thought of Ann Marie from All Dogs go to Heaven, but that would have made her colors too similar to Sora’s (and now that I think about it, that might not have been too bad.) In the end I went with Tanya Mousekewitz’s pastel color variant. It makes her standout more.
On an unrelated note it’s raining like crazy outside. I went to open the door for my mom and I think I drowned. Stay indoors, everybody.
