Inspired by last post’s Takano Aya picture, I wanted to get to know my new/upcoming NaNoWriMo characters by drawing them in a “superflat” style. Ultimately I don’t think they look superflat but they are a lot more cartoonish and twee than my usual work. The one on the right is Chiaki, and the blonde on the left is tentatively named Axis. They live in a neon pink future Japan where Japanese is something of a dead language and the world is divided along lines of Participant and Non-Participant. Or something like that. Two weeks to think about it.
