Kagura :3 by Trudetski Kagura :3 by Trudetski
Download for 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, (with and without shading) and reference.

Kagura taken from the Azumanga Daioh manga. I'm not totally sure if the shading is even necessary/appropriate where I put it. There were lines all over the place on the original image and I wasn't sure which ones I should emphasize in the trace so I just picked the darkest areas. Not sure if it looks better with or without them though. Oh well.

Haha don't know what to tell you. It seems that the localization teams prefer the southern accent vs the New York accent. It kind of bothers me too, somehow it just doesn't feel right for a very obviously Japanese person to sound like a southern American. Hell, I've been around southern accents for most of my life (I actually spent most of it in Texas) and it bothers me. Although...I really think a New York accent would sound simply outrageous coming out of a character like Osaka. Maybe if she was a Yakuza or something...haha. That's ok though because, like you said, you can always just run it in Japanese with subs and then everyone sounds appropriate. Usually, anyway.

Lol i really cant picture yakuza osaka but i can tell it would be dam funny.
Most definitely. :)
Yarr! I hearts me some Kagura. ^^

Hmm. I was thinking that the couple of shaded parts on the outside of the jacket might not have been necessary, but I could be completely wrong. Naaaaice work none-the-less.

Here's a donut for you: :donut:
Yeah the more I look at it the stranger I think it is. I guess I'll just put the non-shaded versions in the zip. BTW thanks for the fav!
