Look at the fanart. Love the fanart. Draw
the fanart, and send it in!
Art is in chronological order, with newest submissions at
the top of the first page.
[Yasha] Again with those beautiful eyes! And
the background pattern makes a really nice contrast with Juri’s
[Giovanna] Absolutely gorgeous use of the medium!
[Yasha] I want Utena’s clothes. NOW. The watercolor
style really seems to suit SKU—probably because of the fairy-tale
feel of the series.
[Giovanna] I want to kill Utena and steal her
"I was looking at my Utena artbooks when I suddenly
got the urge to draw the main characters. But this is Utena
we're talking about, so I filled it with symbolism. Utena is
sleeping because she is so innocent to the world. Anthy is reaching
out to her, who remains totally oblivious in her sleep. Akio
is grasping Anthy's hand from out of the picture, which I find
[Yasha] Very neat in a stylistic way, but it
still reeks SKU. And Utena’s face looks so peaceful! I’d kill
to sleep like that. *thinks a moment* Well… aside from the fact
that being a murderer might disturb my sleep even more…
[Giovanna] The coloring is just stunning, it
makes everything look so...flowing.

"there can never be too many pictures of "The Female Akio" looking slutty. ;)"
[Yasha] Cute! Kozue really looks naughty in lingerie. And the coloring on her hair especially is superb.
[Giovanna] The coloring is really just incredible, and the lingerie is adorable. (If that's the word for it...)
[Yasha] The shading in this one is so pretty, and the little half-smile she has really adds to the wispy, surreal feeling.
[Giovanna] I love the serene feeling the art has. She's happy, and the glasses being off is a nice symbolic touch.
[Yasha] It’s Juri. The elegance and the somewhat forbidding expression—Juri.
[Giovanna] The whole thing just radiates Juri. Even the muted colors fit.
[Yasha] This pic is just Anthy to the core. There’s something about her smile that makes me think she’s looking at Akio, though.
[Giovanna] I'd be smiling too if Akio were in front of me. That said, the coloring in this is just boatloads of cool, and Yasha speaks truth - Anthy 100%.
[Yasha] Chibi-Akio. Kowai.
[Giovanna] There's something endearing about a chibi that does horrible, horrible things. Don't try to resist the cute, it's impossible.
[Yasha] Touga. *grins* Gio hates him. I don’t.
*evil grin* Not even a little. Meeeow.
[Giovanna] Okay, the eyes are very nice. That's
all I'm giving him. LEAVE ME ALONE, WHATTA YA WANT FROM ME??
"Utena in a santa suit (er...a rather tight one...just
the way we like it!)"
[Yasha] I wonder if she can breathe in that?
[Giovanna] Yeah, wouldn't she be cold? This
outfit sounds like Touga's doing.
""Nanamoo"(how come someone hasn't done this
[Yasha] I kind of wonder why there are hardly
any Nanamicow pics—I mean, they’re cute!
[Giovanna] I think this look works a lot better
than the actual being a cow thing.
"Saionji in a leopard-print swimsuit!"
[Yasha] Chibi Saionji! My favorite psycho gets
some well-deserved adoration!
[Giovanna] He's no psycho. Or at least he wasn't
when I thought he was a solids man. I gotta wonder about the
[Yasha] Blues and yellows and that evil grin…
yes, I would probably be his slave. And I would like it.
[Giovanna] I'd be his Rose Bride. And I would
love it. I can take a few swords of hate if I can get HIS sword
later on that evening.
"well I did an Utena-based painting a while ago, and
if you wanna put it up that'd be great!"
[Yasha] Wonderful watercolor semi-realistic
portrait. I wish I could use watercolor half so well.
[Giovanna] Anthy's face is so adorable. She's
vaguely chibi, but not. Just sweet.
[Yasha] Akio-san, you’re so evil. Spank me.
[Yasha] I like the one-tone approach here—I
can almost see this as a picture from the real world sent back
to Ohtori for the others. Except Anthy would get arrested cause
she has a sword.
[Giovanna] Beautifully drawn, and such a sweet
I like men in suits. Touga's in it because I had a basic theme
going, and I wasn't about to screw up my compulsiveness, even
with my hatred for the Touga. I've done worse, but then I don't
see anyone else drawing them in suits. ::hint to all the people
that can actually draw::
[Yasha] Gio has me sharing her men in suits
fetish now. God, they all look… edible. *slow grin*
"it's based off of a pose in a manga style b&w
doujinshi scan I picked up somewhere along the way"
[Yasha] Aww, Anthy looks so sweet! I almost
feel like I interrupted something…
[Giovanna] AMAZING cel art. Simply...wow. I...wow.
[Yasha] The Shadow Play Girls don’t get enough
love. They’re so funny (and by that I mean utterly confusing)!
[Giovanna] B-ko! It doesn't get any more rare
"Miki/Kozue with the music of Hikari Sasu Niwa in the
[Yasha] The misty blue in this one really does
it for me, and Kozue’s expression is just touching.
[Giovanna] Yes, she has an expression aside
from 'Fuck me'. The colors are marvelous.
"Juri with a blue rose (reference to Ruka... my friend
kind of forced me to make the rose blue.. XD)"
[Yasha] Juri looks almost scared here… scared
or hurt, maybe. Nice to see her get some emotions once in a
[Giovanna] As opposed to 'cold as stone bitch'.
"Kanae as a pawn! Yatta! There's a tiny bit of Akio's
finger in this pic...(ALL HAIL AKIO!!!!)"
[Yasha] NO ONE CAN RESIST THE KANAE PAWN!
[Giovanna] This is the most fantastic concept
"Woohoo! I am now in the cast of Utena!!"
[Yasha] Awww, Sophie looks embarrassed…
[Giovanna] We were supposed to get rid of all
non-SKU character art, but...this one is just too cute.
"my friends call me the human photocopier"
[Yasha] More symbolism! Anthy, the colorless
paper doll… Nice work!
[Giovanna] Amen, the black and white Anthy
is hauntingly symbolic.
"fanart o' Nanami and the Henchpeople"
[Yasha] Go Nanami! I love how the henchpeople
are just menacing, shadowy figures.
[Giovanna] I just adore the style in this picture.
It's so unconventional in fanart, and the material is so fitting
to the style.
His eyes look like crap, but otherwise, I like this one. I don't
think I did too bad with it otherwise, considering it's one
of my older ones, and I can't help but love the concept. I'm
fairly sure my suit thing is a "fetish"...though frankly
it's just good sense, to me.
[Yasha] Gio does an excellent job with that
sexy smirk. I can feel myself grinning back every time I look
You can't convince me these are anything but awesome. I can't
draw SKU, but I can sure as shit draw Beavis and Butthead. I've
been doing it since sixth grade. Ironically, I draw them better
on paper than on the compy, but it still rocks. Because it fits.
Though really, Butthead would fit Akio better because he tends
to be the ringleader, but that woulda made problems with their
hair. And I like Beavis more.
[Yasha] Oh, the pain… *cries* My darlings,
what has she done to you?
