So we kick off Fanart February with a piece of Princess Tutu
, quite arguably one of my top 5 favorite animes of all time. It is also a good taunt against someone with masculine insecurities.
Anyhow, I recommend it, and so do others.
It has beautiful music, a colorful cast of characters - my favorites being Ahiru (orange-hair) and Drosselmeyer (creepy guy) - and a fascinating story. In fact, it's a story about a story. That's pretty deep. The first lines of the series are "Once upon a time, there was a man who died."
Watch it! Go to the anime store and inquire about Princess Tutu loudly!
This was hard. It took me three days to finish, and I don't know why. I think it was mostly just trying to mimic the style, and failing on basic anatomy (I hate their legs). It was very difficult for me to try to reproduce the features that identify these characters (Drosselmeyer himself went through like three faces and I'm still not all that happy with it). I think this is why I keep making up new characters and never going back to them - consistency is hard
