Cards From Nanapara

Today we wish to share:
Valentine Cards from Nanapara

You can get acquainted with Nanapara's wonderful art on her [pixiv page].
It's a pleasure to see Grendizer characters through her eyes!

for peapea

for purin-chan

It took us a long time to write because when look at the illustrated scenes, we become speechless and overwhelmed.
はぁ~~~ The art is all at the same time: beautiful, adorable, sweet, penetrating.
The heat wave from looking at them sends us into a coma. peapea had to go lie down. (laugh)

Kouji's boldness in the first card makes us gasp! The white suit and rose bouquet are stunning and contrasting with Duke's everyday farm clothing. And the rose touching Duke's lips is sensual... it is high-level seduction technique. .
Then, in the second card they exchange looks subtly, holdings hand. Flower is modest but meaningful, it is very romantic. ///////
You capture the genuine feeling of sweet gentle love, we haven't seen you draw Kouji like this before!

Thank you for showing us two most precious moments. We are tremendously happy!

Cards from Tendercomrade

Valentine Cards from Tendercomrade

An envelope arrived, and after see it from Tendercomrade is opened at the speed of light!

Tendercomrade is truly master with ideas. The concepts are always super charming. And in-character.

Arranging the rope to a heart shape is so smart!!
Duke is proud of mastering Earth's lasso technique. That confident expression .
The way Kouji is cheering on Duke's superior skills is cute! Already switched from rival mode to support mode. (thought I can imagine him practicing with rope later, when no one is looking).
The colors looks like chocolate on pink frosting, and the border makes it shaped like a biscuit.

Sexy Duke! What a stud ^~^;;;;; *(nervously sweating) huff
All peapea's words clearly echo what my reactions is also! This sheen of brown resemble same feel of flat chocolate pieces on top of cake. I can't wait to see in person. Try not to lick it... hee hee~
Somehow, shapes are clear cut bold yet give leave a lot to imagination. Comfortable yet interesting (from stylistic liberties choices) to eyes rest on. This is a feeling unique to this intuitive cultivated technique.
I like Kouji's eye shape match rest of expression. It is as vintage endearing that professional western seem to lost touch of in modern age.

Wide grin. UAAAAAAAAA~~~Everything about this is too adorable~~~ Naughty Kouji little pudgy poji! He know what he did but peeks Duke with back turned. Duke is not even slight upset. His face♡ Sasuga Kouji~ And yet, this is the Kouji of Duke know and love~
well, Kouji was considerate. Left more than half!
I noticed how it tweak form to match essence plan to convey through each artwork.
Cheekbones on Duke is mature sexy///// (*≧3≦c)♥ Let me want try add, too.

KOUJI! Mouth dirty from choco, we all know you did it!
Good intentions but acting too impulsive, that's Kouji. He's doing a shy pose, but he's anticipating Duke's reaction. I wonder if he feels nervous about the missing choco, or expects Duke will be moved by his generous act... (knowing his confidence levels, surely the latter).
I'm laughing how Duke seems to be expecting this!

Your eyecandy, want to eat more! Tendercomrade's online gallery is serious professional topics, so we feel fortunate to see a sweet side of her.
Thank you!

Cards from Mane, and Happy New Year!

Look at what arrived!
New Year Cards from Mane

It was so exciting to open the envelope~~~
Inside there were two cards with lovely handmade pictures, with a hologram border and glitter accents which made them look extra festive.

They enjoy the snow so much! Winter here is long and cold, but looking at this picture will remind me it's fun too.
It's exciting to see them in different clothes than usual. Duke looks handsome in a scarf...
I love the visible breath and the blushing cheeks.
Later Duke will have to warm Kouji's hands since he forgot his gloves, hehe.

purin-chan add: Lavie's genki show through art!! Kouji light up with smile, it is impossible to not smile with him. ~! Nice clothes! I enjoy see when artists choose different outfit for characters~ Here is fashionable service for girls I can't believe boys can be so cute ponder the snow. Really just can not resist to smile from your Kouji!

Of course 2014 is perfect year to draw Duke posing on a horse!
You captured the spirit of Grendizer: mature but friendly Duke, genki hyper Kouji, and Grendizer Sunset™. And also nice view from behind...

purin-chan add: This year will be great for certain with Mane's beautiful new year blessing. Thank you ~~~ ! I love that your Duke always flawlessly have smoldering model look! Especially can notice by juxtapose by Kouji's buck wild energy. Kouji and Duke just too perfect foil each other. fufu, we notice fast at special attention to cutie rear peek show ^w^b
This sunset is celestial.
I love special effects on handmade card that let it such personal touch. We keep marvel at this treasures.

Also the Tetsuya stamps because they're priceless:

Thank you, and Happy New Year to you too!
Let's have another great year of fangirling!

We didn't have the time to prepare a New Year card (yet?), but here's Duke on a Horse.

Christmas Cards 2013

This year I drawn a lot of cards!

It was Purin's initiative to send cards to friends we've made this year. Rather than printing one design, we made a different handmade card for each person.

Here are my cards (in alphabetical order):

for Ataru

Purin gave me this idea: Maria learned about the mistletoe tradition and wanted to surprise Duke and Kouji. It did work on Kouji, but Duke is clueless!
It has humor and warm, homely atmosphere, which is what I enjoy in Ataru's works too.

for Mane

Also suggested by Purin "Duke riding a reindeer". Originally I wanted to make him wear red, but without thinking I started to paint the background red... so in the end his clothes are icy blue.
Transformed to dreamy Snow Prince Duke to visit his loyal fan Mane.

for Nanapara

I wanted to draw Kouji looking cool like in Nanapara's pictures, while keeping the Christmas spirit.
The motorcycle was a challenge to draw, but I was very determined to make it accurate. I even used the official artbook for reference.
I like minimal compositions so I'm very pleased with the result.

for Purin-chan

It's a Christmas Miracle...! Kouji's wish eventually came true *laugh*
Originally I wanted to draw Duke in prince outfit (wings are from MazinSaga version), but then decided on full-scale fan-service for Purin (I was so tempted to add lilies in the background too, for lily+feather aura).
I laughed to self while drawing Kouji's NASA bedsheets.

for Tendercomrade

Getter One brought a star from the sky and placed it on the tree! Trying to impress Tendercomrade.
I thought it will be difficult to make Christmas-themed Getter Robo illustration, but it turned out fun. Machines acting human are always charming.

Cards from purin-chan

I enjoyed think of meaningful feelings get from each cherished person while draw and ingrain that memories to art dedicated of each. (///^ω^///) I feel lucky to meet special people that let think of fondly~! And so, wish merry christmas!

to Nanapara

to Tendercomrade

to Ataru

to Mane
