Katawa Shoujo realistic portraits

Post by Sajomir » Sat Feb 06, 2010 5:05 am

Not enough serious fanart goin on 'round here! Hence, a realistic Hanako for your pleasure. More to come as I complete them~
(just found out about this game the other day, and the thoughtfulness and quality of the demo are truly inspiring)

I really dig anime characters being rendered in realistic styles, and this in particular looks very good.

Nice work.

It wouldn't have been done without the work you've put into this game. :P
Thank you :)

Woah.... And just when I was thinking of making something like this the other day. Looks like you got there before me and done it damn good! I give you an internetz.
All pencil?

To answer the question, yeah, it's mostly pencil with a touch of charcoal pencil in the darkest spots.

Shizune, however, is all pencil. Getting laughs at our poor hero's expense...

Seriously, looking at things like this makes me wish I was good at drawing. Or art in general. Or anything, really.

I like these. They're a bit jarring at first, being so different from the anime style of the game's sprites and most of its art, but after the "style shock" passes I find it fascinating to look at the characters from a new angle such as this. I hope we'll see Emi and Lilly as well.

The idea reminds me of something a friend of mine said about Lilly- that her appearance was too neat, too manicured for someone who presumably puts little emphasis on appearances themselves. Now I'm wondering if and how everybody else's appearance might change if they were rendered not just in a more naturalistic fashion, but with the factors that go into shaping their appearances being taken into account.

Thank you. :)

Yes, Emi and Lilly are on the way. While that's a great point about Lilly (and one I hadn't thought of) I'm sure her well-to-do family taught her how to "properly" prepare herself each morning, so she's probably cares for her looks out of habit. I still have to decide how I'm going to do Lilly's features, though, since I believe she's the only one who's not pure Japanese.

A less rounder face, maybe?

She just needs to look... more Europeaner.

Canonically Lilly looks 100% caucasian, with no Japanese features.

May I just ask of what descent would that Caucasian-bloodline be? Also, isn't Satou a Japanese surname?
