4LS Secret Santa 2012

Postby Aura » Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:43 pm

I don't know why we do this. Organizing it makes me miserable, non-artists trying to draw makes them miserable, fans being subjected to crud's art makes their eyes miserable, people missing deadlines makes everyone miserable.

Merry Christmas anyway.

Or something.

First picture tomorrow, I'll probably post here something pithy about some of the pieces.

Part of me is actually guilty for participating this year, for someone will get the artistic equivalent of a bag of coal...

I hope it was someone who was naughty.

Being miserable under the guise of celebrating Christmas is a long lived Holiday tradition!

Also the first picture up is just great.

The request from Fink of the German translation team for the second present was exceptionally long and detailed. In fact it has more words than all the other requests of two previous Secret Santas put together had, so I'll quote it in full here for the curious.

In the vein of VN layman psychology, I always liked the theory that Hisao's in a coma after all, and his Yamaku adventures might represent a cathartic process for him to find his way back into consciousness and life - kind of like in The Odyssey, a Canadian kid's TV series that I used to watch when I was a kid; I guess it sorta introduced me to metanarratives at an early stage, too.

Anyway, if I ever had to write a piece of fanfiction for KS, it would be a frame narrative, depicting how Hisao is comatose after all and - contrary to what he notes in the intro chapter - Iwanako did not stop visiting him, but instead continued to visit him and talk to him. He unconsciously constructs the five/six KS girls from what she tells about herself, and gets cues for the narrative arcs/paths from her stories from school and home.

Since I'll never write this story, I'd like to request an artistic rendition of it. I could see an image of an pale, slightly emaciated and maybe not even recognizable Hisao in bed (frail body outlined against the bedsheets) with Iwanako sitting next to him, looking out of the window. Bonus points for giving her a complicated/interesting expression (gloomy and serene?), interesting shading/lighting (no lights on, stars outside?) and maybe a fragment of her narration, something that dimly reminds one of KS without being a direct quote.

Wait wait wait... is that Iwanako's face? After all this time, someone actually dares draw this? I thought it was established canon that her face was merely a black 'X'. MY WHOLE LIFE IS A LIE.

Well crack open a beer and strap in for round 2, bitches!

Yeah I really don't know what inspires me.

PS: Yes, this will also be photographed because scanning is for the weak.

Okay, that "all just a dream" one was one hell of a mind job. I haven't even played KS for months, and that was just... I don't even know. It was like that one image made everything a lie. @_@ ...and... and Iwanako's face...

So yeah, I loved it. You know it's good art when it messes with you that well. ^_^

Yup, that sounds like something Fink would request ^_^°
I actually have a feeling of déjà vu about that story concept... Not sure where I read about it before...
And the picture itself is beautiful. Kudos to Mike!

I remember somebody wrote a story where Hisao woke out of his coma and discovered that each of the girls he had been dreaming about were in reality all just Iwanako. In that version of the story she had a multiple personality disorder.

I look forward to crying myself to sleep upon sight of crud's art. :mrgreen:
