That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Chapter 24 of Magical Girl Policy is there for your literary pleasure. It’s a shorter chapter but I’m proud of it. It was one of the more fun chapters to write. Really hoping it’s one of the more fun chapters to read too XD
So I want to give a big thanks to all the new and recent patrons we’ve gotten on Patreon that have enabled the next part of SCIRT to go up (Red Velvet update went out btw if you missed that over the weekend! Go check it out!) but that’s not the only outpouring of fandom that there has been of late. We’ve also had a lot of art! So let’s show these bad boys off!
The first bit of art here was from reader Tolin who decided he wanted to draw Robynne meeting Nick for the first time as he gives her coffee as a way to say, “Sorry you’re a chick now.” I love that he nailed Robynne’s confused expression (and rockin’ ponytail) and Nick’s helpful smile. Boom. He nailed it. And he actually bothered with the background! And it looks good! I definitely wouldn’t have tried that XD
To top that off, he also invented his own logo for the fictional Sunbanks Coffee House! The detail!
If you’re looking for more art by Tolin, he actually did some images for the collaborative TG fan-comic Troop 37
. If you’ve never read Troop 37 go treat yourself to the silliness of the concept of a Boy Scout who randomly transforms into a girl and the hilarity ensues. It’s not super serious and, as I said, it was a fan collaboration so the art style and story change pretty much with every artist. It’s long since died out but it was fun while it lasted and Tolin (and Pip!) helped out.
As for our next bits of fan art, they come to us from Scott. He’s a rendering artist and what I like here is we get to see a bit of a process as he’s given us two images of Spirit Guard Serenity (along with one Tenacity too!). Here is his first render of Serenity:
What I really like in this render is the both the pose and the hairstyle. The hair is so… sweepy? There is no way sweepy is a word but I’m going with it. It looks difficult to do regardless. But Scott wasn’t satisified with the render so he tried it again.
Serenity is much closer to her actual skintone in this one (poor Robynne needs a lot of sun… and sunscreen) plus I really like what he did with the skirt and boots in this one. I don’t know how rendering works but I just love the texture on them. Plus they just look cool. Magical girl warriors and their shoes, am I right?
Then he finished up by giving us one of both his vision of Spirit Guard Tenacity and Serenity standing side-by-side. Tenacity is, in a word, tall.
So very, very tall. She towers over Robynne (as she should) and holds that claymore way too casually. At least I think it’s a claymore. I’m not a sword buff. I’m also too lazy too look things up. Regardless, if you want to see more of Scott’s stuff, go visit his blog!
So again, HUGE thanks to Tolin and Scott for their fanart. I’m still blown away that people like the story enough to do fan art for it. It’s really an honor, guys!
Artstuffs are the best,
