Usagi's Family by C-Puff Usagi's Family by C-Puff
I wonder who you'll go on to believe in
Perhaps, I think, you'd like to love
No matter how far away you are
You're place will always be here

I wonder who you'll go on to protect
Perhaps without even thinking
I wonder who you'll go on to meet
At the corner of this world


----Translated Lyrics from 'Kono Sekai no Katasumi de'

-------------

This is one of those pictures where I feel a little silly that I even drew it because it's perhaps a little overly cutesy (I didn't mean for the colours to be so pastel) but I really like it so here it is anyway XDD

Usagi's little band of Misfits :heart:

If you're wondering why I included Sanshobo (who, by the way, is a friggen awesome character he deserves more love) and not Ishida, it's because Ishida has his own family and a wife and child which kinda removes him a little from the 'family' concept. Sanshobo on the other hand has no family.... and even though it's so far not been mentioned or even hinted at in any way whatsoever, I can't shake the idea that in some very odd way Sanshobo perhaps sees Usagi as a surrogate son since I couldn't help but notice usagi's roughly the same age Sanshobo's son would be if he was still alive. :shrug: but that's completely just me. There's nothing in the comic to support this.

Anyway I'm rambling. It's 4 in the morning but this wouldn't leave until I drew it. Group pictures take a long time to draw XD;; but this came out pretty good, even if I had to correct Sanshobo's proportions a little. I'm Sorry Sanshobo!! I totally failed at drawing you! XD;;; I'll do better next time!!

I drew his staff from memory, so sorry if it's off.

The colours ARE very pastelly aren't they? Maybe I'll recolour it tomorrow. I was impatient today and I'm tired.

....
*sings to self*

Kimi wa dare wo mamotte yuku darou
Kakegae naku omou darou
Kimi wa dare to deatte yuku darou
Kono sekai no katasumi de~ :music:
I love that song so much omg.

Love this, reminds me of all the TMNT 2003 series and Usagi crossovers. They are soooo badass.

Nice family but aren't you forgetting someone? Someone who has been by Usagis side and has been with him through his toughest challenges and his greatest victories. Someone who is always looking out for him and who is aware of his plight. Even if this person is humable they deserve to be her. Still it's good to see Usagi with what couild be his family. Still, whats up with the preist? He's not very happy.

Do you mean Katsuichi-Sensei? I thought about putting him in but then I forgot as I was drawing this, so he got left out by accident ^^;
As for Sanshobo, nothing. He's just taken aback by Jotaro and Usagi about to fall on top of the others.

Well yes there is him but i was talking about a very important person. I guess without them he wouldn't be around.

Oh thats whats up with him. I thought he was grumpy. Still, it's good to see father and son together.

Well, I guess so but I was saying that you in a way are linked to him. From your very insightful observations down to your own personal perspective, You have in a waybbeen with him through a lot and are thus family. Thats what I think.

i can really agree w/ the father Gen/son usagi. although, usagi is more mature-ish. Gen's good at heart, but i think of them as more like brothers than fathre and son, tho.

This is exceedingly sweet, and-has a certain glow to it. This picture...seems very special.

I hope that you've enjoy yourself in Canada! :huggle: Family is wherever you find it-at home, or, as you put it, a little gang of misfits.

Awwww. Usagi's expression looks so exurberent. :D :w00t: I love to see him so happy-chi. And Tomoe looks a little off-kilter in expression...but that's only because she's a little taken aback at Usagi's stumbling backwards. D'awww. Those two are a very sweet coupling. :happy: :blush:

Sanshobo looks a tad bemused.....*Chuckles.* I almost figured that Katsuichi-Sensei would be there-but it's good to see him! :D :flowerpot: The baffled expression is quite cute.

And what would it be without Jotaro running into the scene! How sweet! :giggle: That boy never runs out of energy....makes me wonder if the dear bunny runs on batteries like his Papa....:)

And Gen looks a bit gruff-but that's the grumbling Gen we all know and love. Silly. :lol:

~*~*~

From an unsignificant encounter It went on beginning
Alone, again a visit alone
That became a story

You were hurt to understand
The strength of tears Someday Certainly

I wonder whom you shall go out to defend
Perhaps without thought
I wonder whom you shall go out to meet
At a corner of this world

I thought I wanted to be strong
You told me
"But you're not alone....."

At the far side of the smile when you turn your face

The spreading skies

Someday, Certainly....

~*~*~

:blush: :huggle:

Wherever you train, wherever you study, I wish you the best of luck. And I'm not just saying your work is splendid because you draw FanArt for series that I love. :love: Though that might have a part in it....

The point is, I'm always giddy to see when you update something new, for that's what is always is: Something new. Something innovative, with your own perspective on things-with a familiarizing that lets us know that you love the turtles and Usagi Yojimbo just as much as we do.

I am very glad...that Sakai-San answered to you. Such a busy man-but a very devoted one. I kid you not, he has never missed a deadline.

Have you ever read the article where Mr. Sakai was suffering from "double vision"-which understandably, made it hard for him to draw? Nonetheless, he had the latest chapter in bright and early-before the deadline that he had made himself.

:giggle:

I see a lot of that fortitude and resourcefulness in you own work, and I wish you great fortune and success.

Abayo!

The staff's called a shakujo. I know because I'm a nerd X3 [link]

It can have 4 or 6 rings, depending on what the disciple is focused on. Not too bad a job, from memory :)

I don't think you failed at all, sillypants :3

D'AAAWWWWWWWWW!

I love the expressions. Jotaro looks like he's after a butterfly or something. CUTE! I love it. (and by cute I don't mean puppy-bunny-chick cute. I mean cute as in... a happy moment among people who share a common person to love.)

I like it. Of course, you knew I'd say that, but yeah. I love the expressions. And I don't think the colors take away from it, but you could add depth with deeper jewel tones.

Rejoicing in the day,
-Mary
