>>723 >>143 > as for why she's always drawn so badass, well, i've yet to see a girl he hasn't drawn that way. he seems to have a thing for yandere
Apparently, lol has a thing for yandere, and draws all female characters badass looking. I don't know if that's true or not, but it seems that way.
Anyways, I was thinking the same thing about Sister after seeing some of lol's art, but said thing for yandere made me think that maybe it's practically fanart…by the creator…yeah. Hmm.
Sure, but .flow isn't Yume Nikki now is it? =3
You still can't do that in .flow itself though. So, more proof that lol's own drawings are fanart? (O_O)
I thought that pic was pretty cool (still do).
I really would like to believe that lol's art has some significance to .flow, other than showing what the character look like beyond sprite size.
Sister does SO much in lol's art compared to in the game. And .flow needs more Sister…

Yeah. I believe that lol is definetly the ZUN of the yume nikki world.
Also im pretty sure lots of his art can provide some /t/ material. Like seeing that one picture of Sister makes me think that Smile was trying to hold her back so that she couldn't harm Sabi.

Gah, I'm sorry if I offended you, I should have phrased that better. I'm not saying that he's a bad artist, I'm saying that his pixel art is waaaaaaaaaay better than his normal art. If he made more pixel art I'm sure it would turn up phenomenally.
Rusch !dp9RTooIeA 01/22/12 (Sun) 06:13:24 No. 729
Also lol did a picture of smile and it was called "Oniisan"
Oniisan means brother. Not sure if he was reffering to Sabi or Sister, but either way its some sweet /t/ material.

>>728 > he should stick to pixeling
I was originally going say something about that too, like
Glad you cleared up. xD
I naturally thought it was just referring to his relationship with Sister (cus, you know, she's called
). But connections to Sabitski as part of Smile's family are always nice to see.
Uh, now that I think about it, is this an "lol's art theories" thread? (+ώ+)

Well, looking beyond that, I think most of his art looks good (of course, that's just me…and >>727).
Some of it does look a little, er, strange though (>>723 Sister's arm…uh…I'm not even sure what's wrong here).
hello 01/22/12 (Sun) 14:56:23 No. 733
the significance of lol's art has been discussed in both the old and new theory threads
do a little ctrl+f'ing see what you get
Anonymous 01/23/12 (Mon) 07:27:12 No. 735
saying that the person who CREATED THE CHARACTERS is drawing themselves fan art because they arent what you have in your head as accurate is really stupid please stop.
If he wants to draw Sabitsuki with her eyes open and using multiple effects thats his deal. maybe you should have reprimanded him for drawing smile's sister as something other than a tumor attatched to smile's ass with beady eyes
N !IKlc0w/AJw 01/23/12 (Mon) 07:59:42 No. 736
Sorry. I was too bent on thinking that only things in the game have significance to the "story".
I'm just not sure if the art could tie into the story or if they're just for fun.
I think I just really want some of the things from lol's art to actually show up in the game (like Sister holding a knife). (@_@)
Anonymous 01/23/12 (Mon) 18:39:46 No. 738
if you only consider the game canon maybe you shouldnt try to find things to base theories on outside of the game??
in relation though, pretty sure people said before that .flow's original main character was this girl in op's picture.

Just forget the "fanart" comments I made. I don't think I know what I was talking about. x_x
Anyways, I remember hello said something about the 'original MC of .flow' having a similar design to Sister, and that it's possible lol recycled that design because he didn't want to get rid of it.

Why do people dislike his art style so much? Anatomy has to be perfect for art to be good? I don't think of the anatomy as wrong, I think of it as creative.
Anonymous 01/25/12 (Wed) 02:35:51 No. 750
It doesn't, but there's a difference between "not knowing what the fuck an arm looks like" and drawing arms in a stylized way.
Bad anatomy is not "creative", it's "inexperience" or "laziness".
Anonymous 01/25/12 (Wed) 02:47:08 No. 754
He might have just an odd taste in art styles. Maybe he can draw things properly and just chose not to.
Anonymous 01/25/12 (Wed) 02:49:51 No. 755
Or maybe he's just not that good. Going for an alternative style without knowing how to actually draw first is kinda shooting yourself in the foot, only for some reason people want to stuff candy in the wound anyway.
That metaphor sucked, but it's a great example of what I'm talking about.
Anonymous 01/25/12 (Wed) 02:51:12 No. 756
Either way, I still like his art style.

From his Pixiv account, it's apparent he's been improving ever so slightly:
Anonymous 01/26/12 (Thu) 07:34:05 No. 775
because its obvious that it isnt an art style, its mistakes. If the anatomy was stylized, it would be different, but it just looks like he cant draw very well.
Anonymous 02/13/12 (Mon) 23:33:53 No. 916
Well, he was able to draw that awesome .Flow background, the one with the big mouth and the bloody teeth, so, he must have some skill.

That's pixel art. lol sucks at traditional art, but he's a master at pixel art.

Now I understood. The maid was responsible for Sabitsuki. Sabitsuki could not get out because it could be a biohazard. That is why the maid wears a mask. Probably the maid not allowed Sabitsuki die because she survived the oxidation.

okay so bear with me
what if sabi is actually lol and the maid is his mom and when sabi wakes up from her nightmares it's actually lol cutting himself and posting pictures of it on twitter
Anonymous 11/03/12 (Sat) 15:22:13 No. 2066
You mean the "Outside" being a bio-hazard, or Sabitsuki herself being a bio-hazard?
The outside being dangerous could be good for someone who wanted to tie in Yume Nikki and .Flow, afterall, lol has written some things about sabitsuki knowing madotsuki. And the outside being a Bio-hazard could tie in the theory of that alien disease thing. You know the video.

with her eyes open
You know how she has slightly reddish eyes when she's Rust? Maybe that's supposed to represent that her eyes are open.

Regardless of how good his/her drawings are, I just love seeing detailed images of the characters. I like that the drawing of Smile finally narrows down just what the hell is going on with his eyes.
And on the subject of the characters' anatomy, even if lol can't draw very well, I've just kind of come to view that as being their style. I think it kind of fits with the game, actually, seeing how all of the characters have ridiculously bulbous heads and the general theme of the game's worlds is bodies doing weird stuff. I am satisfied.
