(Instant Ramen Sketchbook) Sleepover: Clean Yet Ob-Steamed

Hi, fan service. To be on the safe side, despite everyone involved being featureless, assume this is NSFW on account of boobies. (Also I cannot draw bath sponges worth anything, even though I had one next to me.)
Hikaru’s seem a bit… I don’t know, I can’t put my finger on it, beyond that they might look the way they do because of being crammed into that Maximillian plate armor for long periods of time, I suppose. *shrug* Gotta let ’em out to breathe sometime…

That said… as expected, the water ended up being the better part of the paint job here. Water is not easy to paint, you can’t simply just flood blue, squiggle in some white wavy lines and have it look anything near convincing. At the same time, water is not entirely transparent either, as even bath water has some degree of opacity. This is a much simplified rendering– if I wanted to push it further, you’d see some hints of fleshtones from underneath, but here, just a murky shadow contour will do.

There IS steam here, but it’s quite faint. I debated adding more, but it might have been too much. Hm. This is still early into the bath scene, so steam could add up as it goes on.

While I figure out what part of the Sleepover narrative to draw next, I’ll be drawing updated Avatar forms for Blastoise and Dinah, as well as the future Avatar Yggdrasil (“Iggy”), the Media Center box that will be built upon the release of Windows 7. Blastoise is getting a weapon change from 2h sword to a spear, Dinah’s getting twin blades, and because Iggy is a newcomer… well, I’ll just say that I’ll likely base him on FuSoYa with a bit of Phil, so he’ll most likely get a staff of some sort.

WTF, Fontana. 102F?!
It’s a good thing mother’s all “screw the electric bill, run the AC!” or else we’d be melting. Though I imagine she’s doing this more for LOL BULLDOGS. :P

also… FELLOW NAUGHTY LIBERALS! Rejoice for tomorrow, MSNBC finally gets an HD feed!
If Time Warner is still as omgfast about patching in new channels, I’ll probably have it same day. (No, really… last time new HD channels were released, we pretty much got ’em same day as they were advertised for release.)
