Hiiii! :D Thank you for being so kind in your question.
I’m just casually answering Asks at the moment and not taking requests officially I’m sorry (;w; ). I have requests in here I plan to grant, but since I do not know when I can do or post them, I can’t announce that I’m taking requests. I’m happy if people want to see something from me, so I don’t want to disappoint them by giving a promise I can’t keep.
Nooooooooooooooo! (;A; ) Don’t make me choose!
I think that Akashi’s long bangs make him look “handsome” while the shorter bangs make him look “sexy” and “sassy” XD. Right nowwwwww, I think I like drawing Akashi with shorter bangs more. :D
I think it’s cute though that when Akashi has long bangs he and Kuroko are basically twins.
Couples look alike right.
BTW, thank you for the cute question and I’m sorry it took so long for me to reply!
Hmmmmm, this isn’t official but here are the things I have in mind while drawing? It’s easier to see if they are side by side like that. Sometimes I forget as well, but they do have the same hairstyles
they get a haircut together. Anyway, I think what best describes my thought is the egg AkaKuro at the right most part of the picture.
And thank you very much <3.
Here you go! These are from zee fanart section of the Volume <3
Under the cut because these are Volume images.
Hello! :D I use Paint Tool SAI to draw and color, and GIMP or Photoshop depending on which computer I use to put effects/filters. If I have Photoshop, I use Photoshop.
I use the default Pen Tool in Paint Tool SAI to draw with density at 90%, minimum size at 0%. I use the Vector Pen Tool or Line or Curve Tools for backgrounds, or when I need to draw objects or straight lines. I don’t use the Vector layer to draw the character because I think the Pen Tool is more “controllable”. I don’t like how the Vector layer erases.
For something like THIS and THIS, I doodle the thing with the normal Pen Tool then I just sort of fix it by drawing over it with the Brush Tool and then everything will be merged in one layer or are in one layer to begin with. For THIS, I drew it with the Brush Tool instead of the Pen Tool. That’s why it looks much thicker and “dirtier”.
It began with something like this:
For coloring, I use the default brush set in the default simple cirlce, or this one in here for the brush shape (I named it “Square”. Put it in elemap folder in your Paint Tool SAI folder). I think I got that brush from Redjuice. My settings for the brushes are:
Minimum size (52%)
Brush Shape Affection (62%) —> The one beside what brush shape you will want to use
I don’t know what these do but my Blending, Dilution and Persistence are all at 0%. I think this setting lets you get more control over the color? I forgot. I’m sorry for being vague. I’m not tech savvy, but this setting, I think you can experiment on what works best for you?
For the Advanced Settings, I have my Quality at 1 (Fastest), Edge Hardness at 100%, Minimum Density at 0%, Maximum Density Pressure at 100%, Hard <-> Soft at 70%.
My Pen Stabilizer in Paint Tool SAI is at 9 because my hands tend to shake.
Recently, I’ve been trying to get an Akashi gashapon but I’m really not lucky when it comes to these aha-ha. Well I’ve only tried four times but I already got 2 Himuros (1 Aomine and 1 Imayoshi). When the pink one came out the second time I hoped maybe it was Mukkun but Mukkun’s capsule is purple? (;w; ) But at least the Himuros I got are two different types (the one with kanikan and the one with the chain).
Anyway, I also bought Volume 26 yesterday and the NG Shuus are all so cute XD. I WANT AKASHI NG SHUU but at least we get Akashi drawings at the back of the Volume XD. I became really happy because of those! A lot of people love Akashi! AND Rakuzan! There was also fabulous Mibuchi!
I laughed so hard at the drawing with the “Shoplifting is a crime, Akashi sama is watching”, with his eyes piercing through the darkness XD.
There also a drawing of Teikou Akashi with a speech bubble that says “If you publish me, I’ll be very happy” with Akashi showing such a gentle smile and then Fujimaki Sensei comments “The other Akashis all had ‘If you do not publish me, I’ll kill you’ so I was scared.”
There’s also a drawing of Rakuzan Akashi’s head shot crying with a speech bubble that says “My orders are absolute” and Fujimaki Sensei comments “It is my first time getting ordered to the point they cried”
There’s also a drawing of happy Rakuzan with the Mukan posing at the camera and Mayuzumi and Akashi in the BG with a description “I love Rakuzan” and then Fujimaki comments “But they are pretty strong you know?” —> YES BUT THEY ARE STILL ADORABLE.
There was also a parody of this scene: http://mangafox.me/manga/kuroko_no_basuke/v15/c135/12.html
Instead of “I believe in Kagami kun..” “DEFENSE!!” “DEFENSE”, Kuroko goes, “Because I believe in Fujimaki Sensei” and then everyone including Aomine goes “PUBLISH IT!!” “PUBLISH ITTTTT!!!” XDDD This one was nice.
AND THERE’S FAT KISE XD because of the “Who says I’ve gone soft?” but the original Japanese term is “Marukunaru” —> which could literally mean “become round = become fat”. Anpanman Kise XD.
Images under the cut.
Q: When Alex said, “I’ll let you touch my chest,” what did Kagami do?
A: Alex sees Kagami as a little brother. Kagami sees Alex as a mother or older sister figure. Ask a friend who has an older sister how he would have reacted.
Q: Besides Kuroko and Kagami in 109Q, did Riko hit…
We’re the same. I also have a hard time drawing chibis. Mostly because I’m not used to it. The anatomy for chibis is so different. Sometimes if I’m not careful, they’ll look like people with normal bodies but with abnormal heads. “This isn’t cute at all” is what I always say when I’m drawing them. I think the trick in them is the cheeks and eyes/mouth?
I’m sorry, I honestly can’t advice much regarding chibis (;A; ). *iz looked critically*
I think chibitetsu san has a tutorial for drawing chibis on her page. (*A* ) Her chibis are so cute, and she demonstrated the “making” process of chibi Kuroko in one of her Asks (post/77663972001).
