Hero WEWY: Yasashiku Miho by sayokyokuchan Hero WEWY: Yasashiku Miho by sayokyokuchan
I really didn't want to copy Nomura's style. The way I saw it was:

A. Draw the character in my style where I feel comfortable in and feel more confident in entering

or

B. Try to adapt his style but then feel guilty because I know it wouldn't be my best work

I chose A. :D

So this is Miho.
Female of course.
Heritage: Half Japanese and Half American.
Personality: She's a little insecure. It's very hard for her to make decisions and doesn't like to play the role of leader. She likes the thought of being in big groups rather than small ones. Still she likes to joke around, a little childish, and she laughs usually during the wrong times. This usually causes other people not to take her seriously. For example, if she didn't like someone and she would blurt out 'I hate you', they would just laugh and pat her on the back.

Other Crap: She never knew who her father was. Back then her mother had a wild streak and it's implied that her father was in an American rock band. Her mother was a fan of his and met him at a concert. In other words, her mother was a groupie. Her mother works at a bank now, but they are still struggling to afford their small, cramped apartment in Tokyo. She takes up two jobs; a job at Mackie's Genki Arcade and a part time DJ.

She also has a wee bit of hatred for her father and a wee-wee(lol) bit for her mother. True, she is in her teenage years and angst is common for those her age but she dislikes that her mother never told her father about Miho and her father never came back to take responsibility.

Note: Miho took her Mother's surname, since she never knew her fathers.

Talents: Master dance simulation game player(...in other words Pro Dance Dance Revolution Player...though I or Squeenix can't use the name DDR without getting consent from Konami. So, for now, the dance simulation game is going to remain unnamed). Her choice of martial arts is a combination of Eskrima and Capoeira. A very odd choice in fighting style for a japanese girl isn't it?

Weapon: Well, I was reading the Wikipedia on info of the characters to get an idea. And I saw something about Shiki fights with her toycat, and it's followed by a sequence of arrows similar to DDR. So I was like heck, why not, let's have Miho actually use a DDR-I mean dance simulation game pad. So her weapon, is DDR PAD! Just as Joshua uses his phone to type out combos on his phone, she steps on the arrows of the pad to battle the Noise.

EDIT: I just changed the title. Well since I'm here, the bunny in her hair are earphones. If you are wondering how she carries a DDR Pad around she just uses the arrow on her necklace to summon it beneath her feet.

You do realize that by creating a SKS:IaWW character, you're actually asuming she died without having any relevance in the main plot of the game. Do you?

Yeah right. But she died anyway.

Well, how could I incorporate her into the plot?
This contest was made before the game came out. So, if it wasnt out, how can i play it? Then how would I know the plot, hm?

I'm not impying that you actually knew. Just that if she's a character from the game, she had to die, just because noone but the main characters of the game did.

Well, it wasn't a very well thought out contest I can tell you that.
Deviantart was hosting it. All the rules said just create a character for the game, it didn't really tell us that everyone was going to die in the end. O.o Kinda weird dont you think?

Man, I'm really liking the design. I've never played the game, but from what I've seen, she looks like she would fit well in it. You've got some serious art skill. I'm impressed.

yeah. youre welcome. your character was the kind that made you want to click on the pic on impulse, if you get my drift.
and wow. thanks. thats the first compiment i received. i had begun to have serious doubts about them

Oh no no no, never doubt your work. It's wonderful really. Your Spies Inc piece is my favorite. Though, I think you should work a little bit on your perspective and that some of your lines should be cleaner. I do realize you use some inking techniques such as crosshatching, but outlines should be a little bit more solid so you can differentiate between what is shading and what are actual lines(I dont think that made any sense O.O)

Uhm for example, in your Heron Concept, It's really hard for me to tell the difference between his jacket and shirt.

However, you have a very interesting style. I never really could survive with pen and ink. XD Your style, as you said, gives you the impulse to click on it. It's very attractive really.

I do have many flaws in my style. XD No ones perfect. You may be your worst critic, but there's always room to improve!

I've done a few of Miho myself, although I really don't know if I should submit them under TWEWY category because if I do, it would count as an entry. They're just rough sketches, nothing special really.

Good luck to you too!

brokenaoshi Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2008
You can enter as many times as you like though, so I think it's a good idea to submit as much as possible as one character so that it shows you really worked on developing them. o.o I dunno though, this looks very nice ^ ^;;
