Ranma week day 5: Lyrics
"Let’s keep it friends for now (platonic)" by Kaori Sakagami
In honor of Ranma week and the topic of ‘feelings’ I thought I’d take a stab at some short writing again. I’m not sure what I think of it: lemme know what you think.
I’m never sure how I feel about the idea of Ukyou and Konatsu being together. Any time I think of it I just feel like the two of them would have to evolve a lot as people for it to happen. But I want it to work. The tension between these two thoughts is both frustrating and a lot of inspiration for my work, even outside the realm of Ranma fanfiction: the need to explore how characters relate to one another and what keeps them from ‘working’ as a couple.
Today is the “Palette” prompt for Ranma Week!
Basically I just wanted to make myself a shirt… And draw an homage to that one time in the middle of a fight that Akane grabbed a skateboard and ollied outta there for no adequately explored reason.
Thank god for 90’s anime.
This one’s for day one’s prompt of ‘Firsts.’ I’m realizing that this is two ‘fics in a row with a very similar feel. I’ll try to vary things up from here on in.
Quick old school-ish anime style sketch, done for Ranma Week 2014.
Although my own work departs in countless ways at this point, I’ll often defer to Rumiko Takahashi’s graceful line work, even still. Yeah, many of the characters had the same face, but the characters and those gentle, rounded lines always compensated.
But here’s the other thing - my generation might be the first to come of age in the US with anime. Ranma was labeled a “martial arts/sex comedy,” whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean. While I think it lacked the maturity to really consider tackling sex, there was a great deal of nudity and unaccountable expressions of lust and embarrassment. So you have this series, and all that would come after it, to thank for generations of people with really bizarre sensibilities.
Ukyo was a favorite character of mine, depicted above. Though I normally tend towards ladeez with short hair, Ukyo was mad chill.
Welp here my contribution for ranma week … i know is bad its my very first drawing in my new wacom … but p-chan is so adorable *_* … maybe i will do a sketch later of ranma and akane
Day 1- First’s
Its Ranma week! (just found out today lol)
At the end of Nihao my concubine it shows Ryoga cooking Okonomiyaki. So here’s ukyo trying his first Okonomiyaki. He’s really excited so ukyo doesn’t have the heart to tell him what she really thinks.
Day 2- Feelings
I love you, you Jerk!
