Making of Despair Sisters- My Shadow is a Super Model

Cool Music by. Binaria buy their albums and stuff, you know the drill!

Qué tal amigos en español! Este proceso está escrito en inglés, para añadir variedad a la página y eso, así que si no saben el idioma, chequen el widget de la izquierda, es google translate, y hace un buen trabajo (casi xD). Si quieren leer todo mi rollo, denle click! SI no, sólo vayan al link para el fanfiction (que está en inglés) y disfruten una gran historia ;D

Yep, that´s right! This will be entirely written on english, I have to flex my english skills, or else, I may forget why I barely passed the idiom test xD

If you haven´t seen the previous making of fanart I made, it was also from Danganronpa, it´s in spanish, and it´s of Mukuro Ikusaba, because she´s so cool even if the canon one messed with her, the real one and perfect will always be the DR IF version and nobody can tell me otherwise and least of all the creator (learn how to write a character, please!).

Anyway, this new art is in honor of another great fanfiction! You see, I got this knack for great fanfictions and fangirling all over them hahaha, and since I can and I like to procrastinate on my doctoral essays (one per week, how bothersome -.-), I like to flex my artsy fingers with mindless art, just a good fanart, characters already finished, defined and known xD

Oh, no! Maybe I´m becoming a fanart kind of people, oh woe is to me!
Ok, I have stories of my own, but well… stuff,

Shameless self promotion!

Shameless self promotion 2!

Also here you can read the great fanfiction that inspired this fanart ;D

Fanfic My Shadow is a Super Model by. Starlit Shadow Huntress

Now, promotion time, because nobody pays me anything and I love to boast about other people´s great work xD (seriously, what´s up with me!?) Anyway, this neat story give us insight into the early life and rise of the main antagonists (or villians, who knows) from Danganronpa series… The shock, I seem to be obsessed with Danganronpa as of late!
You got it Wrong! It´s just with the fanfictions (yeah, fans write better stories than..ok, I sound like a broken record, who cares? xD).
Seriously, I haven´t encounter another series so unsatisfying that the fandom can do better even if not all the best stories are finished yet! (even unfinished stories are better than…. ups!)

Anyway, on with this story! My shadow is a super model takes on the perspective of both the twins (but I feel mainly with Mukuro), their misadventures as children, they growing up in a neatly and thoroughly well thoughtout backstory, for them both, for their parents (non existent in canon), and even their grandpas! Woah, their ancestors are all OC made by the author and they have even more role in the story than what Mukuro got in the original game, how is that even possible?

This story is a work in process, but I firmly trust the author will deliver it to the very end and give us a wild ride full of exciting developments and emotional moments that will give us a real insight in the minds of the masterminds. Maybe even we can get to see how Junko develops her ambition for world …wreckage? Well, whatever she did…despairfication whatever, but with more sense than the stale dumn “I was bored!” and such.
I forgot to mention, this doesn´t have plot holes, retcons nor improvisations to cover up lack of character development xD seriously, why aren´t all this cool author getting paid for writing this series?

Well, on with the meat of this making of!

First off, I have to confess I had references! (shame on me), this neat imagen I found on the internet somewhere, of the twins as little girls (so cute!). I took the outfits and general appearances, you can´t blame me, the canon has nothing of it! (wth Kodaka! your antagonists deserve better, even One Piece has a child version for every character even if just happens to pass by the screen as background!)

And for the background, I used this other…

For this story, I wanted something symbolic (yeah, I want something symbolic ever, no surprise here!). Something that could relate directly to the main theme of the story, it´s not hard if you know the series, but it´s tricky, too much symbolism can ruin the picture (you know, this is not abstract art or anything!).
Also, I wanted to focus more on the main drill of this story, this is an origin story, but for what? Exactly! SO then, I came up with this little nifty concept!

The, I added color and I got this!

hahaha, kidding! How horrible xD but the desired effect it´s there… just that I skipped a few steps… let´s backtrack a little!

I defined the twins, because no way I will make this fanart like my crappy ones for children stories (look it up on random stories xD)

No, I couldn´t possibly do that for this.. could I? hehehe, so I procceeded with the base drawing!

Well, I made one layer of drawing over the other without caring for having any errors. I already had this little image on my mind about what I wanted them to look like. Lil Junko was going to be this bubbly happy little girly girl and Lil ol’ Mukuro was supposed to look calm, collected and shy, it´s nice how they mirror each other, complete opposites. It´s almost poetic (wow Kodaka, I can concede that to you, your characters are pretty interesting, now you just develop them , please!)

As for the background, I just redraw the whole building like this…

And as for the twins, for that added extra symbolic symbolism, I drew those impossible shadows that will shamelessly foreshadow what´s their future =C

Now, my Lineart it´s complete, yikes! Next step, for the twins, was to add some nice color, right now, they are unnervingly white!

Some color at the hair and clothes too! Also, notice the extra spoilerific details on their shadows xD

With the twins ready, the next step was the background! I wanted something even more symbolic! And that could make the whole composition more intriguing….

Well, yeah, I destroyed the world with a single color change xD so, what gives? In fact, I like the way the color blends like if it were a sunset shimmer of sorts (ups, wrong series!). If not for the gritty grim aspect of the building, it wouldn´t look so bad, don´t you think?

Well, too bad! This is not your typical happy ending! Muajajaja

With this, my evul plan is finally complete! Just throw the characters in there, their destinies will be sealed! Muahahahaha
Also, if you are wondering about the shadows being wrong with the light sources, don´t think of them as shadows (have you seen pink shadows!?) they are more like… evul spirits haunting your very soul, that´s it! So their shadowy shadow rules don´t apply to them, LOL!

Ooooh, but because I like to boast my ego, I´m going to share…some cute conversations and appreciations =D, yep, my little baby will be well taken care of T.T

Finally, some HD version in case someone wants to download the final version and have fun with it (for who knows what!)
