This picture was drawn in February of 2012 and colored in March of 2012.

Warning—Large file with 117 layers.
2nd WARNING: This has been resized so some of the initial detail has been lost.

I’m sure you guys totally want to see a self-centered/best-friend-obsessed picture again. Yes. That’s totally why you all watch me.
And I’m sure you totally want to see more chibi and mermaid stuff from me. Oh yes. It’s not like I’m obsessed or anything.

Well, I present to you my biggest project since . . . I don’t know when. 11 people in one picture is too much, but I’ve done it. It took hours. I’m not kidding, HOURS.
Because there are so many chibis and they’re all underwater, the perspective is awkward. I could’ve done something more realistic, but I didn’t, obviously.
My anatomy still needs work—especially in the shoulder area and getting the neck in the center of the face when doing a front-on picture like this one. The facial structure, necks, shoulders, and collarbones are messed up, my bad.
The rest of the anatomy is OKAY, but it still needs work. I failed at the height differentiation, by the way, but the body type looks somewhat normal (especially since none of us have the same one).
On that note, I must say that I used no references for the poses, which isn’t surprising since they’re so simple. I only used references for the hair on characters I seldom draw, which includes my own, unfortunately (*shakes fist* Amane, why is your hair so difficult for some reason?).
What do you mean they all have the same expression with slight modifications? >_> <_<

Forgive the generic background and very large bubbles. My brain runs away without me sometimes.

>_> <_< Oops, I suppose you want to know who all these weird and random people are. Forgive me, let me inform you.
Row 1 (left to right): Yori (Wulf’s main YuGiOh OC), Kel (My main YuGiOh OC), Krisalyn (Wulf’s companion YuGiOh OC), Kiara (My companion YuGiOh OC)
Row 2 (left to right): Wulf, Me
Row 3 (left to right): Kia (Yori’s oldest daughter), Mana (Yori’s youngest daughter), Arryeana (Kia’s brother Neko’s girlfriend), Atina (Kel’s youngest), Amane (Kel’s oldest daughter)

Note: The KC necklace Krisalyn and Kiara are holding represents their love for Seto Kaiba, whom they are both paired with.

I hope that informs you. If you’re curious about any of them and want more information, don’t hesitate to ask.

Now back to my rambling.
I realize that there are two of each color present minus the gray/silver one. I truly did not intend to do that, but I did want each person to have a different color, even if that meant different shades of the same color. I’m satisfied, to be honest. I did my best to match their tails to their color scheme.

Although the expressions are generally the same (yay for copy and paste because I’m a cheater XP), I tried to modify them slightly to match the personalities of the people they’re featured on, such as eyebrows or mouth size. The eyes themselves are exactly the same in lineart.

I’m very proud of Arryeana’s hair as far as the color. See, it’s originally black but she dyes it blonde at one point. I used to have it much lighter then I experienced what it looks like when someone with black hair dyes it blonde—it doesn’t look the way I had it before. This shade is much more accurate, so yay me.

There are things in here I’m still not satisfied with, but overall, I’m pleased. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and that you didn’t get bored with my endless ranting.
