It's an old drawing, yes, but now the colors are exactly like the original thanks to this new scanner I got some time ago.

The old one I had would throw off color tones and add graininess and blemishes that never existed. I also tweaked my little destroyer virus monster to fit its current design.

>>230 Colored it, and fixed how short her right leg was. Now, the only thing she gets wrong in the pose is the shading style.
I was a tad worried Sonic Adventure styled shading would've taken a bit of a learning curve to master.

Not sure if you shared this before, but may I ask what do you use to create your illustrations?
I see a lot of self-published art online, but not usually with those sort of colors, or something that's throwing me off.

Most of my digital stuff's done in photoshop. I only got a few things done in SAI, but my tablet's gone bonkers so now I can't make use of it. So now I'm back to just inking and shading with a polygonal lasso tool, instead of blending colors as I would with any other medium.

Speaking of other mediums, traditional works are handled with Prismacolor pencils. Took me a while to truly get the hang of blending the colors as I do now, (as well as build upon my palette through nabbing extra colors from the art classes I took)

This was also on one of them older kagura threads. It was real small so I threw it in waifu2x. Does anyone know where it originally came from? It looks like something from the back cover of a doujinshi or something.

It's still a work in progress, but this was a comic I started on that same sketchbook I got the Yomi page from.

I plan to color it soon, but I at least wanted it inked and scanned before I go to bed. I gotta go to work in the morning.

Here's the joke.

Also I just completed Kagura's photo album in Azumanga Donjara Daioh, and thanks to the notion that PS1 emulators and snipping tools exist, I can put 'em here!

Photo no.2

Secondary photos are the hardest to unlock, given how you have to not only beat the first 4 opponents in your chosen character's story mode without losing, but you also have to beat the last opponent so hard that he/she ends up broke or owes you change.

Unlock photo no.1 by beating the endboss without losing, or at least with a single continue.

File: 1457337444055.png (402.41 KB, 640x480)

The ending credits photo is simply unlocked by clearing the character's story mode. Out of all of Kagura's photos in the game, this one actually floats around here and there, and can probably be found with a stray google search. Most of these ending photos have been vectorized and made into wallpapers.

Ironically enough, this is the only part of the game where Kagura's not depicted with a suntan.

This was one of two I got from that artist, the other one I requested as a private commission.

It always kinda bugged me that she isn't tanned in this picture, whereas she is in >>371 when she shouldn't be. Even in the cutscenes when she has a bikini on she has the tan. Doesn't make much sense.
Thanks for these screencaps by the way, I did have them myself but yours are much better quality.

>>374 Oh OH, I think I vaguely remember bumping into that before. That's actually pretty nice you made that happen!

Also the Donjara Daioh photos themselves are actually all squashed when shown in their native resolution in-game. Normally the game would stretch them to fit in a 4:3 ratio, but my emulator's video card has an option to maintain the game's original aspect ratio, which I've been tinkering with a little.
Er, the video card makes them look a tad blurry when the resolution's stretched though, so I found that stretching them in photoshop provided slightly nicer results.

Well there was no way I was going to get the only "official" daki cover with her on it, so I had to go down the commissioning route. I like Sakaki, but not that much.

The problem I had with my screencaps were that they were a little grainy, and had a bit of what looked like interlacing on them.

9db7595c No.447

How much did it cost you?

e5581ef8 No.448

File: 1457476074146.jpeg (363.78 KB, 668x1604)

It cost me $45. I think the artist is charging more for two-sided dakis now though.

It was another $70 to get it printed and around $85 for the pillow. Worth every penny.

8522fc80 No.450

Whoa, damn. You can have spent half that amount by paying me to dress up like Kagura, and …you know.

9db7595c No.458

So if we say that he has increased his price to like 70, and then add 70, and then add 85, it adds up to 225 USD. Plus shipping, let's say a total of 250.
That's fairly cheap for getting what I assume is the love of your life in your bed each and every day.

e5581ef8 No.461

File: 1457549245354.jpg (2.41 MB, 2618x4079)

I just double checked, he's only raised it to $50.

It is really good value for a daki commission, it allowed me to splash out a bit more on a Japanese imported pillow. Most people I know who buy them get them custom made locally for a lot less than what I paid for mine.

Also yeah, I do love her, if it isn't obvious enough already, heh.

9db7595c No.469

I know of artists who would easily charge 200 USD or more for that kind of thing, so he doesn't overcharge at all. Hell, I might hire him to do something for me myself. Can I ask what your other commission was? And where you bought the pillow?

e5581ef8 No.470

I got my second daki commission from the same artist. At the time of the first commission he was only doing safe/suggestive art, so my second one was more risqué. I didn't want anyone else ogling at the art so that's why I requested it as private.

This was the pillow I bought: http://goo.gl/Mx2mLY
If you can I'd suggest you find somewhere near you that can make a custom pillow that's 50x150cm, it'd save the hassle and extra cost of having to use a proxy service to get the one I linked sent to you. Unless you're fine with splashing out on it, in which case I highly recommend it.

526271c5 No.557

That's really cool. Where do you buy those, and are they actually from the show?

958a3162 No.558

I bought them both from anime-haven_net on ebay. They have a lot of other Azu cels on there too, and at reasonable prices, compared to the coloured cels they sell at least.

There isn't an authenticity certificate with them or anything that you might get with other cels, but both of them came with several sketches of each frame, and the newer one I bought came with a sheet of paper that maps the shot frame by frame, so they look legit to me.

02c333d9 No.560

Wasn't Azumanga animated by computer? So I thought there weren't traditional animation cells involved.

Oh I think those are dougas not cels, but those are still pretty cool. I remember wanting to get the one you got on the left real badly at one point.

I got one with Miss Yukari announcing Osaka's arrival from episode 1, and another with a dynamic shot of Sakaki from Episode 9 when Chiyo announces the ribbons she got.

958a3162 No.562

There's a lot of these on ebay, even ones of scenes that wouldn't exactly be highly sought after, so it'd be a very elaborate ruse if they were all fakes.

I've seen them called a whole bunch of different things, so I wasn't sure what to call them myself.

02c333d9 No.563

I didn't mean to necessarily imply they were fakes, just that I'm not sure what their exact function in the production of the animation was.

Spent all evening drawing this.
Kagura wearing Kirby Air Ride's best air ride machine, the Hydra, as battle armor.

It was only meant to be a light sketch to get the concept across, but I just felt like coloring it more and more, and it became the first drawing in a long while that I completed the day I started it.

>>630 Oho, I actually did that with lots of Mega Man in mind; the Hydra only comes in three parts, none of which would've worked as arm or leg parts, so I improvised it as a Mega Man X armor upgrade design.

Proto Man's shades came from drawing it at an awkward angle when starting out. With my desk all cluttered and the drawing pad all close to me, I feared I wasn't going to get her eyes right, so I figured the shades, coupled with the NES-era standing pose, would serve to make her look tougher.

Thinking of Mega Man's various design cues tends to get me out of a lot of messes it seems, even when drawing hands!

6e46b500 No.821

I think it's either:
"Everyone says it's sexy to be this dark."
"Even says you're sexy, even though you're this dark."

I'm leaning toward the first one.

acf712f7 No.832

It's probably the latter. No-ni is like "in spite of".

6e46b500 No.833

Not always, though. Sometimes it's the nominalizing particle "no" followed by the direction particle "ni."

In this case it makes more sense to me to say she's sexy because she's dark, rather than in spite of it.

Found an arts and crafts room at a convention. I decided to draw Kagura for the button maker they had.

The colored pencils were VERY unorthodox to use, so it took a lot of extra work to make it look as though I still did them with Prismacolors. I'm pretty sure I would've had an easier time with just Crayolas.

I'm very proud of how I still stuck the landing through this proverbial hard mode.
