Lazrigees Academy 01 - Please Continue
So, um… hi.
Once again, for all my sound and fury, it’s mid-November and I only have one piece of Lazrigees Academy to show for it. Fail Yoshi is fail. I can’t promise anymore before it’s time to change over for Snowschemes (and ohgod I don’t even know how many of THOSE I’ll be able to do). I’d like y’all to meet my friend “anemia,” and it’s been rearing its ugly head more often since circumstances frequently result in my only getting to eat once a day. It’s weird, isn’t it? :P

I’m not a drinking woman, so instead of booze, I’ll just say “goddamn I need a slice of sausage and pepperoni right now.” (Also, a little birdy told me that Pizza Hut is bringing back the Cheesy Bites spec next week. HELL. YES.) Failing that, stupid amounts of chocolate would also work.

Now, all that said… dude. DUDE. Deeum and Haruko’s daily catfights. This is the least of how explosive they could be. >:D They could go freaking Project A-ko and rip the school apart and Phil would still just sit there and drink his tea, amused at the shenanigans. XD

Inked. Say it with me, I get so much more done after midnight.
Old man Phil’s part will look that much more lulzy and convincing once I color this thing.

Ah, October is nearly half-over and I haven’t put out the first Lazrigees Academy pic yet. Well, let’s fix that, at least with a wireframe. *point*

Deeum and Haruko getting into catfights during class is a daily occurrence. Yoshi is ill-fated in thinking she can stop them… and even appealing to Phil is useless. “Please continue, I am intrigued by this conversation!” while drinking tea.

(Lazrigees Academy) Design: Meta-Binary

Refined concept… but just line art, and just for Hikaru this time because I took too long.

Ended up going with a floppy ribbon after all. Also removed the stripe on the second uniform’s skirt.
As for the “Magical Maximillian” (far-right)… yeah, I don’t love this. Most of it is because I constrained it to a template, but otherwise something feels a bit off here… I’ll play with it separately from the others. Pretty much the idea behind that one is that it’s a magical girl version of the Maximillian, and is intended to look a little more, uh, “homemade” compared to the other variants because it’s assembled in a very, very short timeframe. Also? HURR DURR PIGTAILS.

I think I’ll post the color concepts of this and Numair’s set later today and then just go right into the actual pieces, and do the other characters as I go. The generic uniforms more or less account for 80% of the design work, everything else is just tweaks/add-ons to this.

I WOULD be going to bed right now (I should have at least an hour ago) but mother decided OMG MUST VACUUM THE SECOND LEVEL RIGHT NOW. Starting with my room. x_x Hopefully this doesn’t end with Raging Drama Queen shenanigans…

(Lazrigees Academy) Design: Binary

October = start of holiday season. In the world of Awesome Metaguild Across, this of course means three themed months of Instant Ramen Shenanigans. Yes, the art will flow in abundance once more!

Overriding Halloween this year (and extending through November) is a new theme, Lazrigees Academy. Basically, take Ragnarok TWILIGHT and slap every freaking anime high school trope you can think of onto it. Oh, and don’t strip anyone of their powers– it’s more fun if everyone gets to keep their magic, even if it also jacks up the repair bill.

There will probably be a lot of Disgaea and Ar Tonelico references in here (I love how Ar Tonelico totally screws with the school tropes in the Cosmospheres). Oh well.

I caught a bit of a second wind about… 5 hours ago? Was going to head to bed early, and then, whoosh! After hashing some kind of background out, I put together the barebones of Lazrigees Academy’s uniform designs, as modeled by Hikaru and Numair (though it’s not unreasonable that some others may have some sort of custom elements). Caveat: these value speed and concept over accuracy/detail (especially in the hands).

Let’s begin with Hikaru. It’s so weird to see her in a skirt, isn’t it? Even she knows how awkward it is. If she could, she’d probably prefer a pantsuit. :) I’ve not decided on a color scheme but part of me wants to port over the color schemes for the PAF (brown for males, blue for females).
The second sketch (from left) would be for fall/winter, thus the jacket and longer socks. Not too crazy about the tie… I may revert it back to the first version. Or put a floppy ribbon instead…?
The third one is the P.E. uniform. Poor Hikaru, as a girl she gets the mega-short shorts! (It’s all about fan service in the end, isn’t it?) It would make more sense for her to tie up her hair so it won’t get in the way, but at the same time, anything to keep the likes of Denlan from fixating on her butt while running laps, right?
Finally… the swimsuit. Since this is a school, it’s one-pieces or bust. (hur hur, bust) This time she does tie up her hair, with the aid of a bubble scrunchie and Poring-tipped hairpins.

And on the boy’s side, we have Numair. The base/summer outfit is reminiscent of Evangelion, isn’t it? Maybe not so much once I apply color. :P
Second from the left is the fall/winter variant… pretty much a business suit. I considered giving him glasses here (same scenario as Croix of Ar Tonelico 2– they come off for battle) and I haven’t decided if I’ll still do it. Hm.
Third is the P.E. uniform. Doesn’t change much except that, as a boy, Numair gets longer shorts. Hikaru’s probably giving him the envy glare over that. :)
And, of course…
…really? Did you really think I would just put swim trunks on Numair and be done with it? That’d be too easy, to go the simple bare-chested+trunks route. This pseudo-scuba suit would be much more fun! Also it’s very Sneaking Suit-like, and you know how much I like that thing.
