This is a personified version of the Hareruya mascot.
His official name is Hareruya-kun, but I call him Harekun. This was to commemorate the launch of the second shop opening Hareruya-Narita, and to kick off Inktober 2014. I never really used a G-Pen before, so this month was dedicated to using it every day to see if I could get a feel for what the jazz was all about. It certainly started fun and enlightening...but how did it end?
Missed my train back home from FNM so I camped out at a Sukiya and played some Magic and drew and came back and tried coloring it a little.
I used a picture of the pencils since my camera captured with with an interesting reddish tint I wanted to use. I was thinking of stories as I drew it, and it first I just wanted to draw an arrogant Commander player. But maybe she has to challenge the Seven Warlords of the Sea--but for Commander--and if she can't beat them, she dies. Of course when she gets to the last one, she discovers there's actually one more...the one behind it all. Even a prodigy like her surely doesn't stand a chance.
The name Shiko comes from how Japanese people pronounce "C" and a common suffix "ko" for girls. The kanji in the final means unsanctioned, which is how Commander events usually go, and since this would be games with actual lives on the line and stuff, surely these battles would be off the books.
I literally have to see if I remember how to do this.
Exhausted after losing horrifically at FNM, I missed my stop coming home because I fell asleep on the train. My options were to wait in the open-air station with the bums and bees until the first train at 6am, grab a six minute and 4,000 yen cab, or camp out at a 24 hour McDonald's until train time. Fortunately I had my art kit with me as always, so I chowed down to some long-lost McCheeseburgers and McFly's, hoped I wouldn't have to pee or poo for the next several hours, and camped out while coloring this and listening to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu on my dying phone.
