i drew this last month for valentines but never finished it so i finished it now. i have no idea what i want forrest’s face/muzzle thing to look like, it’ll probably never be consistent, Whatever
sorry about the boring ass static poses of characters doing Absolutely Nothing
also i feel like i should mention that river is definitely pangender ??? but still genderfluid, just, Every Gender, also
no backgrounds because fuck it who cares
inspired by recent real life events between two giant shitnerd babies ((((me and rox))))
sometimes i worry that the dialogue between these two is going to feel unrealistic or unnatural, because, idk? maybe i’m just used to being able to speak frankly about my feelings with my best friend. it might come across as a bit hammy to other people. but i don’t think it’s a secret that, like, these two have a relationship that is very heavily influenced by the relationship i have with my OWN best friend. because there’s nothing i can imagine that’s more inspiring than the person who helped me figure out who i am, what i’m worth, and how i want to spend the rest of my life (with him and his boyfriend). they’re not self-inserts, but they tell a story that’s definitely ours.
(also it should be known that river’s personality is based partly on rox’s, not mine. forrest, the moody, angry, insecure and needy one, is more like me.)
really off the ball edit: forgot to mention river’s hair is longer/scruffier cause this is meant to happen like two or three months after the start of the actual story.
manami, Literally An Angel, sangaku and their princess girlfriend onoda are the only thing i can think about rn lmfao. :’^)
i’m probably projecting on these two way too much
ps. these are not genderbends i’ll slap your ass if you tag it with that
this took much longer than it should have because i had to force my way through the entire drawing. imagine wading up river through a torrent of frothing apathy. anyway.
i’m really invested in these two being gender buddies…… i like to imagine manami probably initiated a conversation after admitting they’re not a boy (probably a good length of time into their friendship), but they wear a binder to present as one, and they find it a hassle to keep up appearances. because… they’re actually an angel, which is weird to admit or even talk about. how can a person be an angel??? but that’s how it is.
but onoda is like, HEY!! I TOTALLY GET IT!! she says that most of the time she feels like a girl, but sometimes she’s something else entirely? she thinks it would be strange to say being a princess is a gender, but she understands how manami feels. and they talk about biking up mountains and wearing dresses and watching anime and are generally a pair of giant nerdlord shit babies
yeah… yeah……. hhbbbffff
(and then they kiss)
some team 2 crap. i drew like forty other things but they all sucked, and this is all that was left.
idk whats happening on the left either tbh
what if makishima started letting toudou do his hair in the morning
(in actuality this was an excuse to draw more hairstyles hoohoohoo)
i did a quick sticker for manami. doing these is a real pain in the ass because i’m bad at drawing so huge, so idk if i’ll have it in me to do more of them.
ps the wings are transparent if you want it on a t-shirt.
i forgot that i drew this, maybe a month ago? might’ve been two. anyway, i came back to it and decided i like it a lot and it was a lot of effort, so i made it into a sticker like i had originally intended.
a fawn-unicorn royal of whatever gender you want, because sure why not.
i dont want to be spoiled, so i won’t look. )^:
but maybe someone else will want to look. thank you anyway!
i’m not even very invested in this guy his face is just really fun to draw
i am however REALLY INTERESTED in how he and onoda become friends but the manga (what is translated and online anyway) is only into the second day of the inter-high… lament…..
sorry about drawing friggin bicycle manga fanart and not updating my comic. i haven’t felt like drawing anything in ages so i’m taking what i can get inspiration wise.
tried to do more ships and ended up getting distracted by midousuji’s ridiculous face.
