Seems like everywhere I go, I see pictures of anime girls in skimpy Japanese uniforms. I wondered why, then I found Kill la Kill. I knew I have to keep watching when I saw Senketsu has thrusters/ exhaust, and in episode 3 when Satsuki fights Ryuko, I figuratively melted (that episode also has the best explosion).
Most of the fan art I see depicts the transformations in fantasy style, I wanted to do something slightly more sci-fi, afterall, the are a lot of mech parts in transformed uniforms. I tried to stick close to the official character concept from the anime, but then I realized the show is very inconsistent on Junketsu's looks (which is probably neccessary for budget reasons and in order for Satsuki to lift her arm), so in the end I got a bit frustrated and simply painted what I thought would be cool.
This is done in a hurry, so if you find anything unnatural in this painting please tell me.
KILL LA KILL Episode 18 SPOILER: Seems like I'm too slow :/ by now everything in this painting has been taken away from her.
15/08/24: I unexpectedly came across this painting again, and I almost forgot I painted this. the first version of this has some glaring flaws, after a hastily edit, now it looks better. Now time to revisit this goofy series.
Fantastic work, ML, truly fantastic.
