Sorry to bug you but are you ever going to draw more of Bakushima children? (im on mobile so I cant see your FAQ so sorry if you've been asked this before
Uh, okay I’ve been asked this question a few dozens times at this point and between all the times I’ve answered it and all the unanswered ones in my inbox still I guess it’s time to explain whaddup with those kids, so
The short answer is: I dunno, maybe, if I ever feel inspired again to! I do like the kids, after all
The long answer is: if you were to open the original post about those kids, scroll down to the end of it and look at the tags, you’d find this specific one
that would be because right after drawing those five pics and posting them, I had no intention whatsoever of posting more of them. Honesntly mostly cause I deal with kids an average amount of time that goes from never ever to laying on my bed with an headache wishing the kid downstairs would shut up already, I never interact with them, I never even look at them, I got no siblings that much younger than me nor cousins or nephews or anything similar I see regularly, I don’t watch shows/read stuff with families with kids or with young kids as protagonists - which means that the amount of inspiration I can get from my daily life as far as this AU goes is a pretty round zero. I have to sit down and actually think about this AU with the intention of, later on, drawing for it, and when my daily life already gives me so much inspiration for all the other things I wanna draw I never find the time nor the interest to do that
Another reason why I didn’t think I would find the interest in drawing for that AU again is the same as why initially I wanted to pick just one of the two kids - I… knew… without even having to post them yet… that I’d get an incredible amount of “lol it’s shark boy and lava girl” comments… and to be fair once they did start getting around I wasn’t even all that bothered by them, but that was literally only because I didn’t mean to draw more of it. It was like, okay yall are missing the whole point of Taiyou’s quirk, are also complitely ignoring the fact that both kids are directly inspired by Bakugou and Kirishima themselves who are pretty similar to shark boy and lava girl so that was unavoidable for me, are pretty much telling me the kids are unoriginal and that you could just watch the movie and it’d be the same, and all these things would be incredibly bothering if I meant to draw more because who even wants to draw for something people don’t even consider its own original idea? But, as I’m sure I’ve said already in another ask, I didn’t really care cause the kids were supposed to be a once-only thing. Doesn’t change that getting that sort of comment over and over again didn’t really make me wish to draw more, though
That said, I wasn’t expecting the kids to be as well recieved as they were??? You all really do like them! Way more than I thought you would!!! And that makes me incredibly happy and makes me love the kids even more than I originally did, and every new kind adorable comment I get about them does make me wish to play more with the idea! So the original “uhhhh I don’t think so, no” turned into a “maybe! I do wish to!” cause a lot of people have been super kind and loving to the two kids, and that’s the best thing a creator can wish for their characters, really!!!
Currently I’m still missing specific inspiration though. So. Back to the short answer. I dunno, maybe!
