EDIT: I decided to edit Mikio once again.. XD I made him older, changed his pose, changed the color of his outfit as well as putting his longer hair into a ponytail and adding the 'signature' ahoge. XD Hope you guys like the newer version better.. XD
(Big drawing XD) Yes! o_o XD THE most characters I ever did for one drawing ever!!! XD
For my 'Fashion' theme in my 100 Vocaloid Theme Challenge. ^^
Sorry about the crazy background, but I had no idea what else to do for it... XD
There were actually supposed to be 9 guys altogether, but unfortunately, DX I had to take out Taito and Gakupo or else I would never have been able to finish this... DX Sorry, but I just had SUCH a hard time with them for some reason that it was really holding up this drawing, so I decided not to include them at the moment.. However, I might add them in the future when I think of good outfits and poses for them as well as adding the new male vocaloid, Kiyoteru Hiyama or the teacher vocaloid. XDD And maybe Gumo. o_o XDD
These are probably ALL my fav vocaloids+fanmade guys (with Taito and Gakupo included XD), but I also recently started really liking Gumo more and the 'sensei' vocaloid, XD so I might add them in the future too. ^^ I just wish I could include UTAUs too, because I also like Sora and Ritsu a lot now. XDD
This was originally supposed to feature just Kaito x Miku... but then after doing some sketches, I thought.. "Why not do it with just ALL male vocaloids instead?" o_o XD (The more the merrier too, right? XD) But I also thought it was a good opportunity to put in characters that may not be in the other themes, XD and a good chance to make them all wear clothes they would probably never wear anywhere else. XD Yea.. You definitely won't see them wear these clothes anywhere else... XD At least not these clothes exactly.. XD
This is probably one of the hardest themes EVER, because it's SO open-ended with the possibles of clothing choices!
It was like playing dress-up with male vocaloids, XD but I'm a horrible fashion designer, so it was like making them wear things as I was randomly coming up with. XDD I not only went crazy from the clothing style varieties, but also the COLOR combination for them!!! Oh man, the colorsss!!! DXXX
I was going crazy from it all and almost thought about just having them all wear black and white! XD (which they actually looked good in by the way >_> XD) But my friend said it looked more interesting with color, so I decided to go with that idea despite the many mind-blowing decisions that had to be made..
I decided to pair my 'obvious' XD fav male pairings on the sides to make it a bit more different than just having them all line up separately like originally intended. XD Thank you
for giving me this suggestion. ^^
Now here's some random stuff about my process of drawing each character... XDAKAITO-
Probably one of the plainest outfits out of them all. o_o XDD I don't know WHAT it is, but every time I have to come up with different clothes for him (i.e. magnet), I always end up wanting to make him TOPLESS in the end. XDD I think he was probably the hardest to come up with clothes for, so he had to end up with this randomness.. o_o XD Maybe it's just me, but I think he looks more natural with no clothes on most of the time. o_o XD But you have to admit, he kinda seems like the type of guy who likes to walk around in his room with no shirt -on a hot day-. >_> XDD (Wow, so off-topic.. XD) And yes, who better to pair him up with than Mikuo, XD who randomly has Akaito's tie in his mouth. o_o XDDD But Akaito doesn't mind at all, so it's all good. XDDMikuo-
Probably the least stressful one to draw. XD He ended up being the youngest/shortest too. XD Although I wanted to portray him as more energetic with Akaito, XD but I decided that wasn't the type of mood I was going for this theme in the end. XD I also had two other very good outfits for him that it was so hard to make a choice for.. DX But they all had the common design of showing his navel.. >_> (I don't know why I like revealing his navel so much XDD Or most of their navels XD) However, in the end, I thought to probably go with the slightly 'crazier' style, since this is one of themes where I can get away with that kind of stuff. >_> XD This is also probably the only outfit that came out the most 'artsy' to me. XD I wish I knew how to make all the other outfits of this 'style'.. XD I also had to make them all pose in a way that would show their outfits well (like for a fashion magazine shoot XD), so I couldn't throw much fanservice in this one, despite my original intention of pairing them up for that purpose.. XDLuki-
My second attempt of drawing him XD (the first attempt was of him as a teenager done in another drawing, but still not complete XD). However, for this I decided to make him 20 (like Kaito's age XD), since he actually looks better older than younger to me. o_o XD I thought Luki almost looked good in ANY outfit I gave him. XDD So it was hard to decide which was best, especially with all those colors and styles in mind, it was driving me nuts!! XDD He looked really good in this outfit as a black and white color scheme too, but I thought maybe the more color the better, so I decided to color it in the end.. XD He also originally had his arm on the back of his neck or touching his hair, but I thought to portray Luki as more gentlemen-like rather than a more 'laid back/'trying to be cool?' guy. o_o XD I guess I'm trying to reflect more of Luka's personality onto him than go a bit OOC. XDHonne Dell-
Believe it or not, but Dell was THE first character that I drew for this. o_o XD One day I just pictured what I could do with all of them in this fashion theme and somehow I just had Dell in my mind first, o_o and thought of this outfit for him, XD but it kinda came out slightly different.. XD This is probably the first time I ever tried a different 'angle' for the face too. XD He's kinda tilting it back and looking forward (I had to use myself for reference though XDD) His arms were also originally supposed to be crossed, because I wanted to give him an attitude. XD But he looked like he was kinda angry (but is he ever in a good mood? o_o XD), so I changed it to uncrossed. XD And I just realized recently, that ALL Dell drawings showed him with a cigarette, <_< except for mines.. >_> XD Oh man, but I have such a pet peeve with cigarettes that I even can't bear to draw them.. O_O I guess my version of Dell will be the version who quit smoking. XDD (I wish he did XD But then again, that kinda makes his character.. XD)Mikio-
Oh boy, here comes a novel.. XDD Yes, This is the male version of the new vocaloid Miki XD More info on her here [link]
Let's start with his name.. XD In the end, I thought since Miki (his girl counterpart) sounds so close to the name Miku -and her gender-bend is Mikuo which is made by adding an 'o'- I thought, let's just do that with Miki's name too.. XD I was also thinking about making it Miko, Mito or Mikito, but then I thought... "let's go with the 'traditional' naming route.." XD I wanted to keep it as short as possible and at least have her first name in his as a hint. XD I just hope when the 'real' official gender-bent version of Miki comes out that Mikio will be his name.. XD And as crazy as it sounds, I immediately wanted to make a gender-bent version of Miki when I first saw her in December. XD I didn't exactly like her that much at first sight either, o_o but it strangely inspired me to make a boy version of her. XD (She only just came out, but I was already imagining her as a boy.. XD) Too bad the rumors of her being a 'trap' wasn't real.. XD It would have been cool if she really was originally a guy though... XD
And now for Mikio's look.. XD Oh boy.. XD I first did a gender-bent drawing of him based on Miki's original design and outfit, but I never did the finishing touch-ups yet, so I decided I'll introduce my version of him in this Fashion drawing instead. XD He changed a lot from that design to a much more mature look.. XD He was originally supposed to be more shota, XD but I thought a mature look was a probably better for the mood of this somehow.. XD And in all honesty, Mikio was THE hardest one to draw out of everyone else BIG TIME.
No matter how I did his face, it would always look so feminine! XD And I know 'really' feminine from 'bishounen' feminine, XD but he was very 'girly' feminine. XD So I had to strengthen the masculinity by not only making him taller and slightly older, but I also had to reveal his chest to prove he's actually a male even more! o_o XDD) It's almost as if he were saying, "Look" *opens shirt* "I'm a guy ^_~" XDDD So that's why he's the only one 'showing off' the most. XDD I didn't want him to be the only one fanservicing on his own, but it kinda needed to be done in this case.. XDD And his hairstyle also killed me! DXX Almost every group of spikes I added to his hair gave him a different look, DX so you could imagine how LONG it took me to finally settle with one style... And just to give some more clues (if he wasn't already different looking enough from Miki XD), I had to give him a star necklace to hint that he's based on Miki (since she has a lot of stars in her outfit). I was also going to make him wear the same color blue as Miki's original outfit, but Luki is already looking good in blue, XD so I had to make it red to show his 'spicy' personality?.. XD (at least in my version, he's spicy XD) (EDIT: I decided to change the color from red to a light lavendar blue. XD)KAITO-
Knowing the huge Kaito fan that I am of him, >_> XD I wanted to have him wear something very fanservice.. (of course XD) But to my own surprise, he actually turned out the -plainest- looking..
XD I thought if his outfit was too revealing (which I really wanted it to be XD), it might draw attention away from the other guys, so I had to make them as even as I could. XD But at least he is acting a bit kinky by pulling his glove off with his teeth.. >_> Lol XDD (I had to at least add that to make up for the outfit XD) He also had several other outfits before this, but somehow I thought he looked best in this one... Kaito's other ones were kinda 'feminine' and 'flashy' at the same time... >_>
(And yes, I'm becoming a sucker for plaid now, so I had to throw it in his outfit here too.. XD It's so hard to manually draw plaid though.. DX) Len-
I ended up making him more mature than shota. XD I didn't know how he could pose with Kaito, but I knew he had to be paired up with him. XDD I think I had to make him and Dell (his counterpart) taller just so he could have his arm resting on Kaito's shoulder. XDD I couldn't think of any other appropriate poses.. XDD His outfit was pretty tricky too.. I only had one other short jacket with a scarf for him, but at the last minute I finally thought.. "That's just too bland.." XD So I decided to at least spice him up with a more different outfit that I came up with on the spot. XD I don't think Len would ever 'actually' wear something like this though... XDDD
I might change or make some alterations of their outfits in the future if (or) when I add more guys in. XD
Let me know which guy is your favorite/least fav XD or what you think about their outfits. ^^
(Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to pass out from exhaustion and hunger after doing all this
