Off-topic, but what's your guys' favorite anime/visual-novel sountrack (as in background music)? Mine has to be the Clannad OST. That's just chef's kiss absolutely perfect. My two favorite tracks are "Nagisa" and "Ushio." I know it sounds kinda dumb to have your favorite tracks be named after two of the characters, but their beautiful tracks, okay! I'm not even sure if "Ushio" played in the anime, but it was the menu music for the visual-novel.
So a few of you guys have said that I’ve inspired you in your art, so I figured I’d share one of my art inspirations with the community here! This drawing is of Gotland, from Kantai Collection. Took me around 12 hours? I’m gonna explain more about KC and how it relates to my art below, so feel free to skip the rest of this if you aren’t interested in that sort of thing!
I first heard of Kantai Collection back in 2015, a little after that years Spring Event had started. I was immediately struck by the game’s art style, and by how interesting and unique the character designs where! Particularly the boss characters, designed by Akira. I started making fanart for the game almost immediately after Spring ‘15 ended, and a large chunk of my art has been KC related ever since.
In particular, I think the artists Drew, Yoshinori and Akira are some of my biggest artist inspirations. Their work for KC has been some of the most important to my growth as an artist! Akira for their gorgeous and often haunting character art, Drew for his insane improvement over the years, and Yoshinori for making me want to improve myself and one day do justice to his characters. Many of the other artists for the game have impacted me too, but these are the top three!
I’ll make another post like this talking about how Bandori and possibly Madoka Magica have also influenced me artistically, but for now I feel like this is the most important one! I literally wouldn’t be the artist I am without the KC franchise. I’ll leave a few links in the comments to the English wiki and some specific pieces/characters for anyone interested :)
Wow it’s already been five months since I’ve joined Banpa and I’ve met so many amazing people.
Also thank you so much for supporting my art on this website! Every comment that I receive on my art means a lot to me and they give me lots of joy so thank you!
I want to give some special honors to some people that made my experience on this website 100x better (if you’re not mentioned I’m sorry I don’t have enough space to fit all of you onto here!)
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my art and overall being an amazing person! Also your art improved so much over the last months keep it up!
Your wallpaper edits and card edits give me life, they always bring a smile to my face! I hope that I can edit like you someday.
Your DF and Collab prediction designs are adorable and your posts also brighten my day! If anyone’s reading this other then Kasei_ then they’re very underrated and deserve more followers!
Your art is one of my big inspirations for becoming a better artist and I look up to you and your art a lot. You were one of the first people that really stood out to me when I first joined this website too.
Thank you thank you thank you for being an awesome friend and introducing me to Bandori and Banpa! I wouldn’t have been in this amazing fandom without you! Also your Bandori skills are amazing like wth.
Your art is also a big inspo for me and it was really fun talking about tbhk in our dm! Your memes also bring me life too!
Your one of the people on this website that love AAside and I love seeing your NyuRen fanart! Your English covers of Bandori songs are very Tsurific and I usually listen to them while I’m drawing!
and that’s it for my post!
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
also happy pride month! I know I’m super late lmao
Hi it’s me Kokichi_rat, I changed my username to Kokichi_kin because someone pointed out to me that calling Japanese characters rats are racist. I had no idea about this and I’m sorry if I offended anyone.
Now ik this has absolutely nothing to do with bandori but I drew Mitsuba from toilet bound hanako kun and I’m like mega proud of myself. Look at the baby. Look at him. Look at his pretty face. Also like a week ago I said I was drawing pasupare x blend s but all I drew was Aya before I gave up lol. Might try again later but I also need to draw Eve oh god tomorrow’s her birthday oh no-
