This unlikely trio of young ladies are on a quest to create a culinary masterpiece to bear their names for the generations to come. So far, nothing they've tried has appeared to jell well with their clients. In hopes of finding butter luck elsewhere, they travel far and wide in search of exotic ingredients and sampling local delicacies. Who knows where their future lies, andwich dish will be their ultimate break through? Only time (and I) can tell.
Individual bios!Samantha, Sand Witch of Flour Desert
Sammy was raised by her grandmother in the bleached wheat dunes. When she came of age, she reluctantly left her grandmother at home (who then wrangled a pig into caring for her in her granddaughter's absence) on a journey to master the dark culinary arts of food alchemy. Though she doesn't like to talk, she also doesn't like to be alone. And so she met a peanut plant.Hinatsu, Peanut Butler
Sammy thought the peanut plant amusingly human-like in form, and then had the impulse of completing the likeness by enchanting it into person-hood. The new abomination was named "Hinatsu" and offered the job of Butler (which, though traditionally a male occupation, was justified by Hina having more nuts than any man). Hina is a diligent servant and a stickler for details. She is also a big fan of Mr. Peanut, and hopes to meet him in person one day. She also hopes to make a manga about cats
one day, too, but she is bad at drawing because she is still just peanuts.Angela, Cherry Jelly
Angie was the third to join the party. They met at the edge of the desert, where the presence of an extraneous s-shaped creek has transformed it into a dessert. A wild jelly had squirted out of a donut to attack Hina, and Sammy tried to save her by blasting it off of her. However, she hit "cancel" instead of "apply" when trying to switch spells, and so hit the jelly with the same gijinka enchantment that had produced Hina. Whoops. Looks like you've made a new friend! She is very huggy and likes to pick up things and put them in her mouth. There is also the possibility that she has an incomplete digestive system, but I do not like to think about the implications of that.Sketches
Originally this was just going to be "Peanut Butler and Jerry," but then when I tried to make a jelly boy, it was too cute, so now it's Angie. Peanut Butler could
have been a man, but my I-Want-To-Draw-Cute-Girls sickness was too strong by then. Sorry, ladies - no classily dressed men for you...yet
In the end, I think Angie and Sam were my favorites to draw; sorry Hina.
I drew this as a vector/line-less exercise because I've found that it's much faster to do things this way. Still not quite as detailed as work with line art, but I think there's still a lot of room for this technique to grow. I'll get there one of these days!
