Finally was able to get around to coloring this rather curious drawing of Kimiko. In the inspiration/homage to image, Miku is laying on a red and black checkered blanket - i thought it'd be fun to put Kimiko on a blanket like a hex map - the background here needs to be tweaked and redone (its not quite fluid enough) but i like the colors on kimiko. Thinking about releasing this as a poster.

The bleeding edge of computer gaming is one of the themes of Megatokyo. That context makes it especially cool to see an homage to old-school war games with their cardboard chits and paper hex maps.

Isn't Kimiko a little old to be wearing pumpkin pantsu?

It looks like Erika possessed Kimiko.

And it looks like she is a little... cold...

Nah, i think the background is fine.
The blanket is cool, but if you really want change something, you should put a color less dark.
Try put some light coming from the up left corner (like an abajur).

Funny how I got two people mixed up here. I thought it was Erika at first due to the confident, slightly mischievious look on her face. Both of which, I don't really relate to Kimiko's personality. Clothing wise, the clothes are really cute! To me, the colors match really well and it doesn't help that they're around my favorite shades of blue. ^_^; I think I've found a new desktop.

As I think about it thats hot.

Since when does Kimiko not wear a bra? Either she had one to many drinks at the Cave, or Piro is coming 'home' to a surprise.

Either way: Awesome.

Definitely nice. I think this is the first time I've actually had trouble telling Kimiko and Erika apart, though. It's the eyes, I think - I could tell when I looked closer that it wasn't Erika, but that's not exactly Kimiko's usual expression. XD

A bit doesn't even describe the weirdness of that thought, Yunifer.

Think about it. What comes after blankets (out of a Japanese otaku point of view)?

Body pillows. -_-;;

The hex details remind me of Metal Gear Solid 2. And looking further, her clothes are dark like the Skull Suit.

Love this. The expression on her face is so unlike what we've seen from her before... it's nice to see her looking so confident.The skirt and top are adorable on her.

And I totally LOVE the hex blanket. ^^
