Double Harken

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

These are all fabulous! Seeing them together makes me appreciate what an artistic daredevil you are. To me, drawing people riding bikes or animals is always terrifying. I feel like I just watched peapea effortlessly jump a motorcycle over 15 burning cars. Peapea risks life and limb for the satisfaction of her friends!

WOOOOOOH!! I was waiting to see all the cards!! You two have drawn a lot!! Good job!

Purin cards are the cutenessssss *______* I told you by mail, but I can-t help buy saying again: you have a special touch for the "delicatessen" sense! Everything in your style is tender, soft and sofisticated! Even a giant robot looks cute (anyway, Getter 1 is the cuttest of the robots) but I can imagine a Mazinger in your style and it's cute, too ;D Blue eyes Kouji makes me want to have a nuigurumi of him and squeeze him and bite him XDDD kyaaaah!!!

Peapea's art is tremendous, I can't find a scientifical explanation to her hability for drawing skilled and elaborated pics on such small piece of paper O_____O How do you do?? I love your style soooo much, too... it tastes like pure manga but has some european touch, too! I love those kind of elegant and well done hybridizations!

I loved to participate in this card exchange, and looking at your gorgeus cards makes me want to draw more and more *____* Can't wait till next chance to do it!

BTW, I already know Ataru san (Ataru saaaaaan!!!! Aitaiiiii!!) but it's the first time I have the opportunity to say hello to Nanapara and Tendercomrade! Nice to meet you!!! Hope we can do more fujoshi activity in this paradise blog.

yeeeey!! :D
