I got bored so I spent more time thinking about Mary, as you do
Okay, so it always bothered me that Shounen Brave and Imagination Forest talk about the same event— but the lyrics don’t ‘match’. and I’ll get to that in a second. I only thought about that while trying to figure out what sort of horrible spoilers Shounen Brave would have in a PV.
As I was going to sleep thinking about it, a realization presented itself to me. There aren’t two versions of their meeting— there are three. IDK how long it took me to figure out, but there are two different pvs for Imagination Forest (the second goes by the name Fantasy Forest). Realizing I’d never really compared them, I looked it up.
Imagination Forest is the only Kagerou Project song to have two official versions of the pv, by the way — I ask my friend and she said Lost Time Memory has one that fixes art, but other that, that’s it.
So, I lined up the two videos, right? And they’re pretty the same most of the way through. The first big change comes when Mary gets attacked and Shion defends her. Shion’s animation is more in-depth in Fantasy Forest, but it’s essentially the same difference.
The differences really hit when Seto shows up. First off, there’s a shot in Fantasy Forest that isn’t in Imagination Forest, of him opening his eyes and smiling when he sees her. It goes by too fast for me to get a screenshot of it tho lol sorry
From that point onwards, though, he’s shown with a face/eyes more often in Fantasy Forest. I’d say it’s just them redrawing him since he became an introduced character, but that hasn’t happened in another other situations… Here’s some examples (caps below the cut)
okay, here are some quick sketches I did
buuut to be honest I am not very good with it either, especially with explaining how it..I tried to show like main lines, but it might not work for you because there are no actual explanations:C
Just..try to imagine human’s body as a set of certain shapes. and when drawing a chubby person (or plus size), just try to make them bigger and rounder. (sometimes they can be squarish, too)
and I am certain there must be a tutorial somewhere, have you searched on deviant art?
anyway, hope that could help just a bit, so..yeah
