The Ganbarumaster by JohnSu The Ganbarumaster by JohnSu
("Ganbaru" is roughly "Do your best")

My first fan art for The Idolmaster! I've never played one of their games, but I really like this franchise, so this was fun for me, even if I did end up trying to redraw several of these characters until I was satisfied.

I'm probably most proud of how Hibiki turned out. Admittedly, I have no clue what she's doing there.
I probably feel most guilty for enjoying Chihaya and Yukiho's crying in this picture. Does this make me a terrible person?

Yes.

Anyhow, even if you don't know these characters, I hope you'll at least be able to enjoy the juxtaposed expressions.

How adorable :love:  You really captured Yukiho's personality perfectly and it's quite fitting the Ami and Mami are crawling all over his head :XD:

Do you read/watch Puchim@s as well?

I know nothing of the characters and now that I see this picture I wish to continue to know nothing of the characters as that would ruin this utterly perfect fan picture you made of these characters for me! ^^; I particularly the girl pounding the cel phone! :D   This is SO cute John! :aww:  So at what point in this picture does the guy start eating this girls for snacks? :hungry:

I don't know much about Idolmaster but you make it look awfully adorable. Like, AWFULLAY ADORABZ. Though after I saw the reattaching-ear thing, I'm admittedly worried about everyone else. >_>a

Absolutely adorable. I also like the little extra you did with Hibiki. Now that I've seen it, that's all I can imagine now.

I really do love all the expressions you use with your characters. It gives them just that much more life into your works.

Despite the chibi girls crawling all over him, that's gotta be the manliest expression I've ever seen the Producer wear.

Don't worry, Hibiki. Just use wood glue to reattach P's ear.

Also, Yukihooooo, hngng. -joins the terrible people club-
