Sorry about all the periods, but I couldn't find a way to make text with the same colour as the background, so I needed to use something else as a spacer.

I just noticed the shiny see through fabric that you have Haruhi wearing on her upper body. Very nice, along with the extra long gloves you've given her. Quite cute.

One thing I noticed though. Haruhi seems to be missing a bit of her left ribbon.

Very well drawn though, Anime-Gagged. You got their looks and expressions down to pat, and the shine/shading is really well done. The blush is quite perfect, too! Just a great picture over all. I'm sure Phoby is one happy customer~

Also, good job on the height difference. Allot of artists don't particularly pay attention to character height when doing fanart. So you get images with Master Chief (7 foot) being the same height as Gordan Freeman (6 foot). :fight:

I find little details like that cute.

I thought it was about right, myself. Naru's a rather athletic university student, and Haruhi's still in high school...and possibly slightly shorter than average.
Reply
:iconjackmackhack:
jackmackhack Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2008
Well Naru's 163 cm, and Haruhi is 158. 158 from what I've heard is an average height for a Japanese woman. So Naru's taller than average, while Haruhi's regular sized. That's about a 2 inch difference in height. A visualization.
[link]

Not a huge difference, but it would be exaggerated since Haruhi is leaning forward, and Naru is standing up straight. Plus Haruhi seems to be somewhat in the foreground. In that light, you're probably not off by much.

One thing I wonder though. Haruhi and Naru are extremely hot headed vixens. They'd definitely put up a serious fight if someone tried to kidnap them. Being fairly petite girls I can imagine them losing in the end though, but they'd raise hell something fierce...so how did the bad guys get them trussed up without messing up their hair or gowns :evileye: I see three options.

1.Really strong, very dexterous guy. Way above average upper body strength, and very quick with ropes. Subdue them before they have a chance to fight back, and get them bound in under 30 seconds.

2.Hollywood Chloroform. Knock them out, then proceed to truss them up. Of course it doesn't work anywhere near that quick in real life. Thank god for fantasies. (In the end, I prefer slightly more drawn out chloro KO's).

3.Standard female grab area. I personally feel this is a total cope out. Damsels need to be shown resisting their peril with all their might.

I potentially see another option:
- something along the lines of dimmak, the utilisation of striking specific pressure points on the body that causes an instant KO. Anyone who has played a Splinter Cell game will know exactly what I'm talking about. It's quick and efficient, but a word of warning is that only a trained professional should apply this, in order for this to work.

Despite my suspicion that something like that wouldn't work IRL (at least the way it's advertised in fiction), it's a great fictional kidnap method. I don't normally like physical KO's because of the damage it involves inflicting on the girl, even though I like kidnappings that involve the girl getting physically overpowered. I like this. Kidnapper comes up behind the girl, she turns around in surprise and gets a finger jabbed into her pressure point. She's momentarily stunned, then promptly faints into the arms of her captor, and is carried off. Something like that would work very well against resistant girls like Haruhi and Naru.

I like, good work
:thumbsup:

well, what works in the world video games, might just work in the world of anime :P
On that front, I like you kidnapping idea. Stun her and she faints in the captor's arms. I can picture it just now. In fact, would you mind if I used this concept for a comic in the form of a storyboard. Haruhi spots something she believes is extraterrestrial. Runs after it and losses track. Captor behind her taps on her shoulder. She turns around only to be given a fainting pinch. After which she is secured and carried away.

Go ahead man. It's not like I have KO kidnapping copy righted. I personally don't find pinches dynamic enough for kidnapping though.

It'd be more exciting for the captor to grab her shoulder while (somewhat lightly) jabbing her on the torso after she turns around. She then falls face first into her captors chest. It comes off as a bit more forceful while still not hurting the damsel.

Excellent points re: the height. I appreciate a fellow who thinks about these things.

In my mind, the key is that they may not have been dressed that way when they were nabbed. A scenario like option 2 would see them grabbed, moved to a safehouse and probably gagged before awakening. From there, I see specialist kidnapper/beauticians holding them at gun point, forcing them to don the gowns and submit to getting their hair done before binding them and dragging them to the altar. If it's more like option 1, they were probably ganged up on. (I also agree about the need for damsels to resist realistically.)

On height
-Haruhi probably appears to be shorter because of the art style that's used in the series (And allot of other anime for that matter). The girls are drawn with an exaggeratedly petite figure. In this image, Haruhi' body measured shoulder to shoulder only 60% of Kyon's shoulder to shoulder length. So while the girls technically are smaller, the biggest difference isn't in height. Of course the body size of characters seems to be more of an artistic taste, so fanart tends to bring a sort of standardization.(And I have no idea why I think of these things...)

On kidnapping :thumbsup:
Option 2 response
-While that kind of scenario is fun occasionally (Evil overlord forcing the Heroine into marriage), I'm a kind of guy who really likes the actual kidnapping. Thus not having the girls actually abducted in a cute/sexy out fit is a bit of a bummer. Though both the outfits they end up wearing can end up being sexy. I'm personally not quite big on the death threats aspect though. It's much more interesting IMHO for the captor to be able to force the Damsel into something rather than resorting to threats, it just seems to contradict the position of total dominance the captor is supposed to have. Like in the example you gave, the (female)Specialist kidnapper could loosen the bounds enough to strip and change outfits, rebind the girl, and add cosmetics. This would be highly ironic if done to Haruhi.

Option 1 response
-Gangs ups are fun :horny: . It really helps subvert the problem that a regular mook by himself can't efficiently physically restrain a girl [I]without[/i] hurting her if the girl doesn't succumb to Standard female Grab area (To many things to cover, not enough hands). A couple of low level villain red shirts working together could probably get it done efficiently.

Though there's something a bit more personal with just having one extremely efficient kidnapper. It has an entirely different feel when the damsel has been dominated by just one kidnapper who totally pwn3d her. There's just this sort of cool professionalism of an individual who can quickly subdue a girl without hurting her, and then making off with her over the shoulder.

But yeah, if you don't go one of these two routes with a non KO or threat (using a weapon) based kidnapping, all you're left with is a more clumsy proloinged kidnapping or one where the damsel doesn't resist efficiently. The first can be fun, along with the second if it's in character for the damsel (It'd make sense for Mikuru, but not Haruhi).

Bondage sure is fun :horny:

Oh, I enjoy the kidnapping too. And tying them when they're already dressed pretty. <3 But in this particular case, it seemed more likely that they were stuffed into the gowns after the nabbing. Unless they were both grabbed from their respective weddings. Not impossible, I suppose, certainly quite daring.

Good call about the dominance thing, I'm not so big on the threats either...I wonder if there's a market for a story or stories about a team of specialist abductor-beauticians?

And yes, we'd ALL like to be that super-duper kidnapper. ^_^ I must say, the depth and breadth of thought you devote to this is heartening. Have you considered doing any writing yourself?

:iconjackmackhack:
jackmackhack Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2008
...Oh, so all this talk about weddings is referring to the OP commission? I thought you were just talking in general. Alright, since the bad guys have something very specific in mind for the girls (Bridal capture), then it makes sense that they'd do something like this.

I take Naru is the bride, and Haruhi the Bridesmaid...thus bringing up a very interesting question. What happens to the Bridesmaid after the wedding? I really doubt the bad guys are going to go through all the trouble of kidnapping Suzumiya just to let her go after walking down the aisle with Naru.

As for writing, I've tried stinting at it during last summer break, but got distracted from when my first semester at collage started. Maybe now that I'm on break till January 20th I'll try getting something down.

Two Tsundere's in OTN's? Very much fucking want! Really like your take on this particular type of gag.

Nice expression on the girls faces. Their flushed faces, along with the way their hair is moving makes it very obvious they're struggling.

Also, good job on their busts.

I just love how affronted and struggly they look. *sigh* It fits their personalities just beautifully. And there's just something about a woman in a nice gown...

A true fanboy's delight, my friend. Thank you VERY much!
