Some Hakuouki faces! This is a Disney art style study that I enjoyed a lot. I tried to give each character special features to emphasize their personalities, so I hope it turned out well. At least I’m quite glad with the result :D
Finaly my exams are over and I’m able to breathe again! Don’t have a lot of time for art now, but still my favourite guys kept me company through this rough couple of weeks c:
Also I’m super inspired about Hakuouki fandom, so if you want to chat and discuss something don’t hesitate to use messages and ask, I really want to make some new friends *_*

I’m sorry I haven’t been around lately but since it’s Pride month, I thought I’ll make a small comic for you guys! I decided to practice a new comic layout and it turned out quite well. It’s still up in the air if this will be a mini series, since I am still working on Be my Prom Date, but we’ll see :)
Sooo… Guess what I finally got around to watching?
I saw it advertised on Netflix for a while now, but it never really looked interesting.. Until I stumbled across a few posts about it on Tumblr.
It finally caught my interest and WOW! I did not know what I was MISSING! It’s fantastic! So, I binge-watched it in two days, then begged my brother to watch it with me, AGAIN. And now I’ve finally worked up the nerve to attempt fanart!
I’m quite surprised with how well this turned out. Normally, I never attempt to draw CGI characters, mostly because 3D shading is still a struggle for me. But I’m really proud of this! My bro says I should show it to Guillermo Del Toro… buuuuut, I don’t have a twitter or anything like that, so.. Eh.
While it was never stated on the show, given that she turned into a goddess of love, was infected with lust, and given the amazing chemistry Alyssa had with pretty much everyone (women included, namely Billie and Kyra), I feel like
it’s not unrealistic.
okay but the only marichat i can genuinely see is the kind where it’s not 2am balcony visits but just two people trying to find out what the other is like (in a non-romantic way more like who the hell is this person and what makes them them)
like marinette saying an off hand comment about chat being looked over all the time in favour of ladybug saying things along the lines of “they’re a team ladybug cant fight without chat” and adrien just being touched that his awkward school friend sticks up for chat??
like he wants to thank her but knows if he turned around and told her in class it wouldnt quite work out so well. but he’s curious as to what she’s like since she rarely gets a full sentence out around him when he tries to have a conversation
when chat knocks on the bakery door one day whilst her parents are out she’s curious about her partner. (don’t try to tell me people would talk because I present you the evillustrator ep where he just stood outside her door talking and no one saw) so she invites him in for some croissants or something.
at first its just like “a cat told me that you talked highly of me today i just wanted to extend my purrsonal thanks, princess.” and she just brushes it off like it’s no big deal but she’s also curious about what her partner is like. when hes not trying to show off for her or impress “his lady”.
at first it starts off as casual visits to the bakery timed when her parents are gone but when that proves hard they progress to afternoon/afterschool balcony visits. the visits are just two friends hanging out, laughing about any mutual interests they have (chat confessed he liked anime and mari confessed she liked cheesy tv shows and they each watch the other’s suggestion to get to know each other better).
their interactions start to ooze into their other personas. adrien casually referencing a tv show she had suggested to chat and she barely even notices. ladybug mentioning to chat that she agreed that sunsets were the best time of day, even though he had only told that to marinette as chat.
slowly things start to trickle in about each other and only then do they put the pieces together. cue suspicion of identities on both sides. their visits becoming flustering messes because “the coincidences are too similar this definitely might be their crush it might be adrien/ladybug” but also hesitant because what if theyre wrong?
it all comes out of the bag when marinette and adrien are working on a school project together (they were paired up by ms bustier) and marinette casually goes “chat can you pass me that book over there?” adrien complies, not noticing for one moment she used the wrong name.
five minutes pass before both realise what they had done. adrien is freaking because he’s like “oh no i let the cat out of the bag” punning even in the face of disaster when tikki lets him off the hook and reveals mari after she becomes too flustered with the words to say
they then are red in the face and bursting with happiness when they go to school as boyfriend/girlfriend
Kaz & Inej: - Kaz leaves a note by Inej’s bed before she gets up with a note that says Come to the rooftop. It is not signed, but she could pick out his handwriting - He has a bundle of black roses for her. Inej does not know where they came from. Ketterdam flower shops did not sell black roses. - She gives him a knife, not unlike her own. For some reason he still uses the knife he ever had as a child. He smiles at her - He still calls her wraith, but there is something different in his voice, love perhaps - They sit and talk quietly, watching the sun rise over the harbor, and they watch the couples wander around Ketterdam - Kaz occasionally attempts to compliment her. The first few times sound…less like compliments but they get better as the day progresses. Nonetheless he is still an awkward teenage boy in the end - After a few hours they get down and wander the shadows of Ketterdam - They end up at the docks on the richer side of Ketterdam. Kaz tentatively puts his gloved hand in Inej’s as if to test it out. She smiles at him - They eat mediocre noodles and drink hot chocolate at a small restaurant in the South end of town. It had been one of the first places he had shown her when she arrived in Ketterdam. - The two continue to wander around, looking into the windows of random shops, and reminiscing about little moments they had together, such as Kaz showing Inej where the generous shopkeepers were, or Inej showing a grudging Kaz how to braid - When they get back to Crow Club he stops her and pulls out a small object wrapped in a red handkerchief. It’s an obsidian crow necklace - Kaz pulls down his shirt to reveal a matching necklace. Inej can’t help but smile. Tentatively, she hugs him. He hugs back, but immediately lets go. She doesn’t push it she respects his boundaries - They end up on the roof, eating the Crow Club’s signature bread and end the day with a shot of expensive whiskey. Inej rarely drinks, except when with Kaz. The flowers sit on Inej’s bedside table.
Wylan & Jesper: - So much food oh my god - Both ended up getting one another chocolate - Wylan got Jesper a box of the fancy chocolates he used to have as a child, because he wanted Jesper to know more of his life than just the trauma he went through - Jesper had somehow managed to hand craft a flute out of dark chocolate for Wylan - The walk downtown and hold hands the entire time and casually joke about buying each other stupid little trinkets - They go to a nearby bakery and each other boxes of pastries they think the other will like - The pastries turn into their lunch - Wylan has a fancy dinner prepared for them at his manor, with a hearty selection of meats and liquor for both of them to choose from. - In the middle of dinner, Jesper pulls out a box. He gives it to Wylan. Inside is a ring with the Van Eck family crest on it. - “This is yours, it belongs to the firstborn Van Eck of each generation” he tells Wylan, “I nicked it back before you showed up, figured Van Eck would want it back but no, it’s my honor to give to you, my prince” - Cue Wylan blushing and almost crying - Jesper learns Wylan’s alcohol tolerance is incredibly low - They slow dance in the main hall, which is decked out in - They cuddle together on the couch. Wylan eventually passes out in Jesper’s arms. - When he wakes up, Jesper carries Wylan up to the balcony, stopping along the way to allow Wylan to throw up. He smiles sympathetically. He himself had been in that position many times - They sit on the balcony and watch the stars. There is a shooting star. Wylan leans over and kisses Jesper as it passes.
Nina & Matthias: - Matthias had never celebrated Valentines Day in Fjerdia so Nina insists on going all out - She buys him pink and white roses and some “inexplicably” end up braided into his hair. There is also a yellow tulip in the mix. Matthias assumes it got there by accident - Nina constantly flirts with Matthias - He responds by grumbling, blushing, and “grudgingly” saying I love you - They go out for waffles. Matthias is initially reluctant to indulge himself but eventually caved in and ate double the amount Nina did - The two teasing one another about coffee orders(Matthias takes his black and Nina thinks it’s disgusting, but she takes it with plenty of hazelnut creamer and sugar and he thinks it’s the devil’s semen) - Nina wants to take him out to dinner. - While Nina is prepping to go out, Matthias finds a small bakery and buys Nina a giant box of moon cakes. - Matthias is in a midnight blue suit and a black tie that Nina tailored for him as a gift. It compliments his hair well - Nina is in a gorgeous red and white silk dress - Dinner turned out to be a nice upscale bar with plenty of good food and mead - Both get drunk - Nina also manages to go through 7 margaritas - Somehow Nina convinces Matthias to sing Karaoke with her - It turns out he can sing, quite well. Everyone is surprised. Nina is absolutely in love. - They sit at a booth in the corner of the bar with plate of various appetizers sobering up a little - After a few hours, the two begin to head back to Crow Club. Halfway there, Nina stops and stares at the moonlight glistening off the water. It is beautiful - Matthias leans in and kisses her. They kiss under the moonlight before heading back, hand in hand. - They immediately pass out in Matthias’ bed once they return. Everyone else, save for the few, lonely drunks, was long asleep.
