Shizune by mysterycycle Shizune by mysterycycle
Still working on the KS doujinshi, but I needed to take a little break because my artwork on it is feeling really stiff.

So I drew Shizune in my own style, hoping it would help me loosen up a bit.

I could do with some of her drive to succeed these days.

Made in SAI.

Shizune and Katawa Shoujo are Four Leaf Studios.

I mean, Lilly is my favorite without a doubt, but gosh... Shizune looks so pretty here!

i'm revising for some tests, all i have on my internet is this picture so that when i inevitably cave to boredom and try to go on the internet shizune just stares at me... i can see her silent ranting for me to work, and i go back to work.
with an otherworldly muhahahaha in the background

Good! Shicchan would be so disappointed if she thought you were slacking off, right? Maybe she'll spring for lunch?

Shizune is a pain in the ass to draw.
with that outta the way, you drew her so amazingly that i cannot begin to describe it.

Thank you very much! Perhaps oddly, Shizune felt a lot easier for me than Hanako does. For some reason, every time I draw her, I don't feel like I'm getting Hanako quite right. I feel like there's some key feature I'm not consciously noticing, and so when I don't include it, it feels off. Hmm.

It's just shizune's hair...it's all weird, like "omg wtf how do i do this?"

even weirder, shizune has my least favorite character design in the VN, and usually i have a preference for things i suck at drawing O_O

Ha ha, I get that. Yeah, her hair threw me off at first, too, but I finally noticed how the little "cat ear" parts extended down past her bangs to the sides of her face. After that, it started to come together.

The character who frustrates me most right now is Emi. I love her as a character, but I haven't yet nailed down what detail it is about her that makes her distinctive. But there is *something*. I think it might be something about her mouth... In any case, I haven't been happy with any of the drawings I've done of her yet. But I will figure her out! *shakes fist in defiance*

Oh man, I REALLY dig this... looking sharp, classy, but with a hidden hint of the mischievousness that lies beneath the surface. I'm now eagerly awaiting this doujin!

Sadly, Shizune won't be in this doujin. Having said that, if I decide to do another after the current one, she'll be in it.

No worries! I gather that it's going to be Hanako-centered (in MY KS-fandom? It's more likely than you might think! *chuckles*)

That being said, I really do think that you've managed to capture a lot of Shizune's essence in a single snapshot. Excellent job, sirrah!

Very little great Shizune art. I like it.

That's part of why I wanted to draw her. I know she doesn't get as much love. But thank you for considering it "great"!

...Unless you were just making a general statement about the dearth of good Shizune art, rather than a specific compliment about my piece. Which, uh, is cool. *tries to play it cool*
