I'm not sorry for that pun.
I was gonna wait 'til Halloween to post this but I was so dang proud of it that I just had to share it with the world!
I wanted to do a Halloween piece because I haven't done one in a few years. I started sketching out Meta as Fighter and Nilla as Black Mage, but then this idea hit me and I just had to run with it. Because, like, you'd think Meta would be the boy and Nilla would be the girl, but it just works so much better this way! Y'know, 'cause Meta's the tall, fit one, and Nilla's the short, cute, round one!
After I sketched out the background, I noticed I accidentally put Meta on the wrong side
of the sidewalk. I liked the composition too much to flip it, though, so I just pressed on. But as I worked on it more, I realized that I actually like it better this way, too; because Nilla's dressed as a boy! So let's just say she insisted on being a gentleman and Meta was totally secure enough to go along with it.
And on a related note, I am totally secure enough to draw my babies being adorkable cuties and ship them like a girl on Tumblr without a hint of shame.
