It’s been a long time since I drew Squid Girl. At the time I was trying to run through pairing her with every major female in her show, but I only got through about three of them before petering out while working on the fourth. I’ve never done a straight pic with her, though, and this Ask was a good chance to change that. I keep thinking I’ll get back to her series of pics, but other projects keep getting in the way.
It’s been a little while, but I decided to pump out another Squid Girl pic. This is probably my favorite so far, in large part due to the background. Sanae is also one of my favorite characters in the series, since I’ve always loved the lesbians with a crush in anime, especially when they come with a side helping of crazy stalker. Seeing Sanae get her hands on Squid Girl does something for me, especially in her room with all her (presumably homemade) Squid Girl merchandise (and body pillow!) lying around.
I don’t know how Sanae got Squid Girl in this situation, perhaps her previous experiences with Eiko and Chizuru have helped open her mind and made her more accepting of Sanae’s feelings, but even so she’s still a bit uncomfortable being humped right next to the body pillow she’s no doubt treated the same way countless times. I love it, and I hope you love it, too.
The second girl to be paired with Squid Girl in my little series is Chizuru Aizawa, Eiko’s sister. Chizuru at first seems affable and unassuming, but when her family or her store are threatened she becomes frighteningly dangerous and is easily the most capable character in the series. Squid Girl is terrified of her once she learns this, and while Chizuru doesn’t outright threaten Squid Girl, she’s not above using that terror to keep Squid Girl in line. I imagine Squid Girl to be a willing partner to Chizuru, but the whole time she’s afraid of getting turned into calamari if she doesn’t do a good job.
I’ve been meaning for some time to do something with the anime “Squid Girl”. I started watching it shortly after the main character’s costume was added to the game “Splatoon”, and I really like it. If you want a quick taste of the series, you can check out this AMV I did of it here. It’s very distinct from other moe moe anime, but more importantly it’s chock-full of sexy characters.
I would have done something with this show a long time ago, but I kept having trouble deciding what I wanted to do with the series. Eventually I decided to structure it, so here’s my plan: I’m going to draw Squid Girl with each of the prominent female characters in the show, in the order she meets them in. There are a lot, but I have ideas for each pairing and am honestly really excited for this series of pics.
Eiko is the first person Squid Girl really talks to after coming to the surface. Squid Girl’s goal is to conquer humanity, but Eiko isn’t intimidated by her at all and quickly has her waiting tables in her beach-side restaurant. Eiko and Squid Girl argue a lot, but it’s clear throughout the show that the two care for each other in spite of that, so I decided to make this picture a bit more cutesy, with Eiko playing big sister to the smaller Squid Girl. Anyone who’s seen the show and its “Mini Squid Girl” segments will probably understand why I like this dynamic for them.
