It's A Competition - Colors by IzunaOtoshi It's A Competition - Colors by IzunaOtoshi
My SECOND ever attempt at digitally coloring anything. Hopefully I've made a bit of progress ^_^

Well, here we have Kagura and Sakaki engaged in a friendly boxing match. I have no idea how Kagura talked her into it, or why Sakaki even agreed to it. Seems Kagura just won't rest until she proves she's just as strong as her "rival" (but Sakaki's fairly apathetic either way)

So, Kagura starts out well enough, keeping pace with Sakaki, maintaining her defense and actually doing fairly well considering she's up against Sakaki. Unfortunately for her, Sakaki had been holding back in the beginning, and after deciding to turn up the offense a little, manages to back Kagura into a corner.

Kagura was planning to dodge around to the side to escape the corner, but Sakaki wasn't having any of that. This body blow is the moment Sakaki decides it's time to fight for real.

I hate shading hair. :XD:

Is this from an anime or manga? Which one?

IzunaOtoshi Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
Azumanga Daioh, which has been both a manga and an anime. To my knowledge, this particular scenario hasn't been seen in either form though, just my own wishful thinking ^^

Sakaki: *to Kagura's coach* "Throw in the towel, for her sake!"

Haha, that does sound like something she'd say. The coach might have a hard time hearing her though if she speaks too softly :XD:

Not mine, but this guy gives a review on Azumanga Daioh.

It's positive, by the way.

Hey, I ain't forcing you.

But to tell you the truth I hate movies that have you make up your own endings.

Clearly I don't hate this, but I guess you can say the end IS pretty obvious.

But, if you were and are having drawer's block here's ideas:

Sakaki's win:

Next picture would be a bleeding and black eye'd Kagura accepting a punch in the face from an evily grinning/gritting Sakaki.

Following, a K.O'd Kagura (who looks god awful by this point) laying on the floor, with Sakaki looking at her in guilt, or Sakaki victoriously posing.

Kagura's win:

A suprised Sakaki is blocking an enraged Kagura punch. Kagura will still look pretty bad, but furious as well.

Then, basically the same victory thing, but roles reveresed.

Wouldn't say Sakaki enjoying this herself. her face seems to show no emotion what so ever neither, joy, satisfaction, sadistic, nor evil.If you want to know what I mean try this guy for example :iconrightarrowplz: :iconcaptainplz:

:iconscoutsnrainbows:
ScoutsnRainbows Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010
And on another note, if this was for some effed-up reason in the anime, Sakaki would still win, as the Sakaki vs. Kagura rivalry is usually one-sided.

The more I think about it, the more I wish it actually had been in the anime. Plenty of ways for it to be written in that make sense with the context, and it would've been awesome to watch.

ScoutsnRainbows Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2010
Yeah, pretty much one of the most simple anime around gets a combat scene?

That'd be like if in Naruto Sasuke came back, and Sai, Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke, and Kakashi went through a walk in a peaceful meadow.

Or...not.

It's super effective.

But, in real life, Sakaki could win, as said before, she's got a reach advantage and is the most athletic character in the show.

Yeah, or maybe Kagura said something mean about Maaya. I figure that might be enough to get Sakaki to want to punch her a lot. :XD:

Wow, I'm impressed this is only your second attempt to color a pic like this, that's amazing! And even if you hate shading hair, I think your effort paid off, it looks great! I can't wait to see more from ya! :D

Hehe, thanks a bunch. I'm slowly getting the hang of it, picking up on little tricks with shading that give the pic more depth.

I suppose one of these days I'll have to put a little more work into a decent background though. :XD:

I tried adding a little motion blur, but I didn't like it and decided to leave it out. ^^
