I decided to use it for my "mixed media project" as part of my college course.
Nikki came out a lot better than i expected, Kaori came out horribly.
and i know that Nikki looks absolutely enormous compared to the tiny basketball net but i decided there wasn't much i could do to fix it without skrewing it all up lol.
the basketball looks crap too. i'm tempted to somehow get a basketball and go there, place it in the scene, photograph it, then go home and crop it out XD
I tried my best to get it to fit in.
i liked the idea of there being a real basketball there but floating in mid-air (obviously with no one holding it lol) and comic lines making it look like it was bouncing from Nikki basketing it. it's a good mixture of photography and drawing
I spent quite a long time trying to decide on which character to do. I almost did Xai and shida in the picture but wanted them both to be girls. I thought about Skye but she has two side character friends to choose from and to use only one would feel weird (and i only wanted one) i was gonna do Amako and Kaori but then i jsut decided it would suit Nikki more, which i knew it would, but i only hadn't decided on her sooner cus she isn't really linked to my other characters. but i thought, "Hec, i can just link her here".
my first idea of characters was the new ones from that manga I'm planning, Kirin the naga and Satsuki. they would have been PERFECT for the parts... but Kirin is way too small XD
Although her pose would probably be quite adorable XD
It would be more like her hanging from the basket and looking over her shoulder like "Tadaaa" xD
I just didn't want to redraw the pose.
especially since I had to do it on the computer with tablet, which i hate.
Originally, since i did such an awesome job on Nikki's anatomy, she was gonna be topless (with no nipples or anything), but even that was too controversial to do so I managed to give her a top that didn't change her body shape.
but then since it only required me to click one button to remove her fudging top i couldn't resist doing this anyway: [link]
So there we have it.
Nikki and Kaori are © me
kaori: hey that's cheating
Nikki: ssssss don't worry kaori when you become a naga like me you can do the same
amazing well done details
announcer:and the naga scores a slam dunk
me: I don't find it cheating when its sheer height and the fact that it would be hard to jump as a naga
She was cheating lol ^^
Nagas shouldnt be allowed to play basketball! x3
I only just realised this morning that I never uploaded the story where Nikki comes from. in fact, I never finished it lol.
let me guess, america?
i've both bullied and been bullied. went to a special needs school so it's hard for even the shy, wimpy quiet kids like me not to laugh at some of those poor kids that have messed up brains (i mean more messed up than me lol)
I lawled at pretty much the whole thing XD
The basketball looks like you already did what you said you'd do with it XD
Do you think i made the basketball convincing then
