Mystic Messenger x Cheese in the Trap Crossover

I (horribly) attempted to try and draw MM characters in one of my favorite art styles, which is Soonkki’s, who created the webtoon: Cheese in the Trap. I’m very influenced by their style, especially with how I draw eyes and expressions. So yeah, when I was playing through Zen and Jumin’s route, I can’t help but see some parallels between some MM characters and CiTT, so I’ve been wanting to try and draw them in Soonkki’s style for a while… but I kind of… butchered it lmao.

When 30 yo Noctis wears his default outfit from 20 yo Noctis, he looks like an older guy trying to be hip

When he wears the casual outfit (jacket ver), he looks like a scruffy creeper NPC out of some survival horror game

And when 20 yo Noctis wears his kingly outfit, he looks like a lil kid playing dress up


A story idea I wanna explore but probably won’t is Sun seeing Sage for the first time (before team SSSN is formed, obviously)

like, Sun just aggressively elbowing Neptune in the arm during an assembly at Haven or something, and Neptune’s like “OW DUDE WHAT THE HECK” and Sun’s just like “WHO IS THAT”

and Neptune squints in the direction of Sun’s sight to see who Sun is referring to, so Sun has to be more specific. “TALL, DARK, AND HANDSOME AT 2 O’CLOCK, WHO IS THAT”

And Neptune squints again because only one person in that gaggle of people fits that description and he kind of stares widely at Sun and goes “…you mean Sage? SAGE?! Dude, he’s scary!”

“He’s hot!”

“He looks like if you look at him the wrong way, he’ll snap your neck!”

“Oh please, we don’t even know the guy!”

“Which also means we don’t know if he’ll snap our neck!”

And Sage kinda is looking around the general area, but he spots this tall guy with bright blue hair and this scruffy haired blond kid staring at him weirdly and he’s kind of going “not again…” on the inside, but he’s glancing at them more and the blond one seems to be… making a “Call me~” gesture?

“Am I hallucinating? Did I get enough sleep?” Sage goes as he rubs his eyes, and looks again.

“Sun, he’s looking at you!”
“Good!” Sun keeps doing these weird charades trying to indicate that they should hang out or something.
“I don’t think he understands you from here…”
“Come on, let’s move closer then”
“SUN, NO
“SUN, YES” and doing that Michael Jones-esque “Scuse me, scuse me, scuse me” thing as he moves between people trying to get closer to Sage to ask him out
