-Saikyoudai- by Deus-Nocte -Saikyoudai- by Deus-Nocte
~Download for bigger view~

It feels really good to complete a full picture again. <3

Especially when it's of a new favorite couple of mine!

This is Hiruma Yoichi and Anezaki Mamori from Eyeshield 21, a football manga.

Many of you who know me also know I reeeaaally don't care for sports. However, while I was reluctant to read it, the characters really drew me in and kept me going until the very end.

These two were awesome. Once Mamori becomes the team manager, these two end up having to work together. There were many arguments in the beginning, to say the least, but they really grew close as the manga continued. It was a really natural development, I thought.

In this picture, their outfits are roughly based off of the ones they wear in the last chapter. Of course I don't know the actual colors, but I think I improvised well.

~Slight spoilers~

They ended up going to the same university together (named Saikyoudai), so the premise of this is supposed to be them casually working on schoolwork or football team management things--either one--Hiruma with his computer and Mamori with old fashioned pen and paper. XD It's the way they seem to operate.

~

But anyway, I really do love how this piece came out. I had a lot of fun doing it! Trying out a new angle and perspective was nice too.

Enjoy!

P.S. The poster on the wall is official artwork and logo, I didn't draw that. XD

08/12/09 ~ This piece won 3rd place for Anime Iowa's fanart contest! I'm so ecstatic right now XD

And I agree with you completely. I'm not a fan of sports at all but the characters drew me in too. There was just a nice depth to them that kept me reading.

How cute! Mamori's rainbow toe-socks are adorable and the football lamp is just priceless. I really like her expression - maybe she's about to pull something mischievous on Hiruma? XD
