“You are a disgrace! An absolute disgrace! I cannot believe you let your daughter see you in this condition, Theodore. She was so worried about you! I wish I could say that I’m surprised right now, but honest to god the only thing that surprises me about this is that you’re not in here with some peroxide blonde tramp!”
Theodore rolls his eyes, wincing as his sister-in-law’s shrill screams penetrate his throbbing skull. “Is she still here?” he mumbles, glancing over at the pink haired doll lying crumpled on the floor beside him.
Arabella scowls at him. “Yes. I had planned to take her and Hazel to school early this morning, but she insisted that I come up here to check on you first.”
He nods, and pulling himself up off the ground Theodore silently breezes past Bella and strides down the hallway toward his daughter and her cousin.
“Lila Grace,” Theo forces himself to smile through the piercing pain in his temples. “Go change out of your uniform, sweetheart. You’re not going to school today.”
“What?” the child frowns. “Why not?”
“Because I’m taking the entire day off work so you and I can spend some long overdue father-daughter time together.”
“What?!” three distinct voices reverberate around the corridor.
“No school! No school!” Lila Grace sings over and over again as she dances around her dad’s legs.
“Do I have to go to school, Mom?” Hazel whines.
“Theodore, I really don’t think that’s such a good idea,” Bella hisses, ignoring her daughter’s repeated tugs on the sleeve of her shirt.
“I just have one quick errand to run this morning, Gracie, but after that I promise I am yours for the rest of day. Does that sound like a plan?”
I created overworld sprites of Mahiru and Hiyoko. Both are tested in RPG Maker XP and work just fine. Mahiru was terribly easy to create, but Hiyoko took a lot of…well, creative licensing. I spliced together two sprites of children NPCs and went from there. But the twin ponytails were especially tricky to represent accurately.
Anyway, I’ll get to another character from Super Danganronpa 2 pretty soon. I was thinking about making the growth spurt Hiyoko and schoolboy!Komaeda just for fun, but we’ll see because that is going to require another color palette.

i saw your pixel art self portrait and i thought it was really cool i was wondering about the process and maybe some tips on how you did it so i might be able to make one for myself?
For me the best way is to start small and simple and with rough masses. I do not have a real work in progress of my self portrait as I only have the finished product now, but I can show you roughly how I proceeded.
For a pixel art of this resolution (I don’t bother with my very low res ones) I usually start with human anatomy basics:
1 - Draw a circle. 2 - Add the jaw to make the oval of the face. 3 - Be careful not to make the jaw too long, you should be able to divide the face into equal thirds. 4 - The eyebrows sits on the 2nd line, and the ears are positioned between the upper eyelid and the tip of the nose (but only when the face is level).
Of course you can adapte the contour of the face to suit the one you are drawing (thin, round, angular…)
Add the general traits like the rough masse of your hair, clothes… Then you can add the features and the details that make you, you.
This gif doesn’t show all the things and pixels that I changed here and there, sometimes it can take time to find the one pixel that will make the portrait works. For example, at one point my portrait looked like this:
But I wasn’t satisfied with it, it had too many details that made the lecture less clear, and my face was too long and too round. So I had to change it a few times too get it right.
