During the past week I’ve been working on Teru sprite (as always, you can check his profile as other characters’ in the Kujikawa Characters page), but since it’s still a bit far to be completed I’ll use this post to talk about Fujisa. I skipped writing about her last week, so it’s about time! : D
So far Fujisa got two poses (plus a hand variation) and 20 different expressions. As for her personality, she’s a very genuine and honest girl; for this reason, she shows her emotions clearly, so no fake smiles or introverted postures this time!
I designed a straight pose, aiming to look directly at the player to better “dialogue” with them, and an “embarassed” pose as Fujisa is also a little bit shy. Shyness turned out to be a useful way to show cuteness when drawing girls by the way lol.
Currently she has two different outfits, one being the school uniform, the other being some office wear. Actually, I had quite a hard time when designing the latter…
Fujisa is from a rich family and after graduation she’s going to work at her father’s law firm. It would have been nice to draw her some classic office wear then but I simply didn’t like to have her wearing boring clothes for 90% of the story. I had a blouse I wanted her to wear and I kept it, but in the end I scrapped some pencil skirt to make her wear a wide skirt in striped thick cotton.
Since also Kairi is wearing a peculiar gilet, I thought about calling this clothing as “Kujikawa fashion” lol. I’ll be sure to provide Teru with some matching apparel : )
January is being tough, with many complicated assets to produce but I’m confident to finish at least them within the end of the month.
