Oda Nasumame was berating his daughter about how no man would marry her because of her freakish cartoony appearance ("no doubt inherited from your mother"). He was about to suggest an otaku for a suitor when an EVIL SAMURAI rose up from the river, bellowed at them in the devil's tongue, and began chasing them across the country.

What you see is day 2 of the chase, where Mikan is carrying her father because he cannot run and eat breakfast at the same time (they managed to buy a pouch of beans from a vendor while running laps around him). Oda has the idea to deter their pursuant by throwing beans at him.

Mikan thinks her father is just trying to exacerbate her and his efforts are futile, while Oda is genuinely doing the best he can out of love for his daughter.

EVIL SAMURAI, however, loves beans. You could ask him, "Ingemar, what is best in life?" and he will immediately answer "Bönor!" - which is presumably devil-speak for "beans."


This was a fun one to draw - Oda in particular feels like a Dragonball character. The other two maybe not so much like Dragonball. But fun nonetheless. I'm trying a more "billowy" style with clothes this time, with emphasis on more lines that bend outward.

I fear the anatomy of these characters may be a bit wonky (apart from the style, of course) because this is one of those times where I just sketched the characters as they are instead of laying out their poses before hand. I'm more error-prone to this sort of thing when I skip that step, but it also lets me explore the "feel" of a piece more directly this way. I suppose there isn't actually anything stopping me from doing "skeleton correction" after the initial layout...

This is so cute and adorable! I'm not sure if you've ever played Maplestory, but this would be perfect art for it, the style, happy feel, uniqueness, everything could coexist well with Maplestory's feel and atmosphere!

Well, I pump blood into it, and screams come out.
Then I filter the screams for words and try to put them together so they form a sentence.
