Double Harken

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
