This is actually a redraw of picture I drew like five years ago where I ripped off the pose from another pic I saw and didn’t really do a good job of it. I’ve been meaning to redraw it for years and I’m glad I waited because I really like how it came out. The pose is more original than before and their expressions are a million times better. Ugh, I just hate the old one. I’m glad I can’t find it. Please don’t find it.
IT TOOK ME FOUR FRICKIN DAYS TO DRAW THIS!! You guys don’t understand. I NEVER spend that long on a picture. This was a huge challenge for me and I have so much to say about this I don’t even know where to start! I’ve wanted to do this for years but every time I start I can never finish. BUT IT’S 2016 BABY AND I AM BACK!
AGAHGAJAJAKJSKlkdjl!!! This show means so much to me. It was such a huge part of my childhood! My first fandom, my first OTP, and my first anime crush too! xDDD Although looking back, I would never like a guy like Kai at this stage in my life. lol Anyway, if you follow me on Tumblr I’ve posted two WIPs for this. I don’t really like posting WIPs anywhere else so if you like that sort of thing then my Tumblr is the only place you’ll find them from me. :3 Just a heads up.
Now before anyone says anything about the design changes or clothes, LET ME EXPLAIN. I’ve always had this AU idea in my head about these guys if Beyblade wasn’t about Beyblading but instead about fighting. Takao would, of course, have grown up doing kendo but yearn for something less strict which is why I put him in a yukata instead of his normal clothes. If you look closely you’ll see that everyone’s outfit is a bit different. I have the idea all thought through and I may or may not either write fanfiction or just turn it into a story of my own, but I really just wanted to explain why they don’t look the same as normal. Obviously I edited the hair as well. I’m sorry guys, but I just can’t with the hair. It’s fine when I’m watching but I could never draw it like that so I did an AU version, I hope that’s okay with you. lol
ANYWAY shout out to AnimaProject who unknowingly gave me the motivation to do this by drawing this amazing fanart!! CHECK IT OUT ON DEVIANTART! And look through her gallery too because she’s AMAZAH, you guys!!!
