This picture started life as an experiment. I had a four-armed character I was going to draw surrounded by four babes, but the positioning didn’t work out. When I abandoned it, I figured the first two arms could still work, and I thought of these three as characters I wanted to draw so I shifted it to feature them instead. Miss Ayumi is the teacher of A-ko, B-ko and C-ko in Project A-ko, and is a parody of Creamy Mami. She plays a fairly minor role in the series, but still managed to stand out and I’m happy to finally get to do something with her.
I’ve been wanting to draw the girls from Project A-ko again for a minute, but haven’t had the time between other things. This Ask was a good excuse to not only draw them again, but draw my preferred ship from the series (sorry C-ko).
A-ko and B-ko spend most of the original OVA series fighting over C-ko or boys or whatever, but I think they have a good chemistry the way certain rivals always seem to. Of course, being made to work together in their first pic in the Studio could well light a bit of a spark, though I see the Studio versions of these characters as a bit of a thruple that includes C-ko.
It’s as easy as 1-2-3. This pic features the three main girls of Project A-ko, a classic anime about schoolgirls fighting robots and aliens, and also each other. From left-to-right we have A-ko, B-ko and C-ko (or Eiko, Biko and Shiiko), three classmates in a bit of a love triangle. A-ko and B-ko are childhood friends, while B-ko jealously wants to steal C-ko away for herself and is constantly fighting A-ko over it. I’m pretty fond of all three of these girls, and wanted to do at least one pic with all of them. I might return to do more with them individually or in pairs later, I’m not sure, but I’m happy to have at least this pic of them done.
