saro's art

anonymous asked:

What mangas would you recommend that are like Sakisaka Io's? I'm also a fan of her work! (Also it's store bought and a little late for Valentine's but here 🍫)

Strobe Edge has a pretty generic shoujo plot to be honest, so a lot of recommendations could be made plotwise. I’ll go with Nagareboshi Lens (Murata Mayu).

For Ao Haru Ride, the main plot centers around one’s past love who has seemingly changed once they’re back in touch again. In that case I’ll recommend Mune ga Naru no wa Kimi no Sei (Konno Risa) and Nonohana no Kare (Toumori, Miyoshi (Art), Tekkotsu, Saro (Story)). Murao’s subplot can be likened to Hirunaka no Ryuusei (Yamamori Rika) but I’m sure you’ve heard about/read that one already!

And err… I don’t really have anything for Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare unfortunately.

I like how the Sakisaka-sensei contrasts the two differing visions of love of Yuna and Akari and pairs it with a childhood friend and step-sibling love. From the top of my head I don’t think I’ve really read a good shoujo with two female main characters/square-ish development. It probably doesn’t help that I’m not actually up to date with it hehe… But don’t worry, if I find something I’ll update this post and reblog it.

Sorry if you’ve already read any/all of these!

P.S. Thank you for the choco! I’m a guy so I guess that means I have to return the favor on White Day? But it’s already past White Day so do I have to wait for next year? (And if you give me more chocolates next year, what happens then? Bwahaha plz ignore my ramblings)


RIGHT SO I saw the new Wonder Woman movie poster - I am politely neutral to anything comics related, disclaimer - and the anatomy just… jumped out at me as really, really off. So I flipped it around and played with it a little in SAI to see what I could figure out what’s bothering me.

They made her neck super long and just. removed her left shoulder entirely? (EDIT NOTE: both shoulders, honestly, are not where they should be) and i’m not even gonna make a joke about Escher Girls in Comics making their way into the real world too, I’m just tired. As an artist, not just as a lady sick of being sexualized. This isn’t stylized art, this is a photograph of a person supposed to look like a person. You’re a massive company launching a worldwide movie. How do you miss something as anatomically off as this?

lady-shroom asked me a little while ago to finish a scribble of my take on a titan!marco so here

Name: Amber Titan/Patient Titan

Size: ~20 meters

Known information: Despite an extremely slow regeneration time, this titan is very slow to attack even when provoked, generally holding a crouched position where it appears to be mediating.  However, it is studded with formations of a amber-like material and can flash-form this crystallized resin around whatever contacts its skin, imprisoning it.  It uses this technique to protect vital parts of its body and to collect soliders who attempt to strike it, and once it appears to have enough stuck to its body it will abruptly flee. Its victims are never seen again.

Far right is the original ~6 minute story I submitted to the Telltale workshop, middle is the one I did for/during the workshop, and left is the nearly finished complete work. i don’t know how much progress/difference you guys can see, but each little circle is it’s own ‘page’ of events or variables, most of which need coding to keep track of all the potential choices.

great practice for anyone wanted to do VNs or stuff like that. Twine is amazing. But if you’ll excuse me, I still have to go over here and Die.

“The muscles in what’s left of his back stand out in sharp relief under the tight skin, especially at the scars where flesh meets metal like lightning. He can see wires, maybe, gleam under ivory plastic plates that curve and try to hide the mechanics underneath, and his fear of what has become of Marco Bodt twists into dark, cautious curiosity.”

trying out a bunch of new techniques bc render!marco is my baby and i owe him so many apologies
