In which "If you know 80% of these characters, then you're my friend" is how it goes...or so they say.
It was fun when I posted it on Deviantart and people guessed it.
Everyone even got their guesses right! I'm so happy~
Since I've already posted the answers on DA, so here it is (from left to right):
Sakata Gintoki from Gintama (c) Hideaki Sorachi
Shion/Sion from No. 6 (c) Atsuko Asano
Natsume Takashi from Natsume Yuujinchou (c) Midorikawa Yuki
Sawa Rakan from Silver Diamond (c) Shiho Sugiura
Ryuugamine Mikado from Durarara!! (c) Ryohgo Narita
North Italy from Hetalia (c) Himaruya Hidekaz
Sawada Tsunayoshi from Katekyo Hitman Reborn (c) Amano Akira
Okumura Rin from Ao no Exorcist (c) Kazue Kato
Takanashi Souta from Wagnaria/Working! (c) Karino Takatsu
Sanada Yukimura Gakuen Basara-version (c) ???
In the end, no one managed to guess No.4 due to the fandom being quite small (seeing as the series has yet to be animated) but someone did manage to guess 9 of them right even though they named two only by series.
It made me really happy because it means that my drawings are recognizable enough. I've seen a few others who also did this meme and some of them, when I looked at the answers, I was like 'o rly?' since I knew the character but could not recognize it. It's mostly due to the artist's style but...meh.
I chose to go with a 'sleep' theme, as you can see. It was fun coming up with their different poses. I tried to add an external feature that would help make them more recognizable. Like Gintoki's sword, Mikado's handphone, Tsuna's pet and Natsume's book of friends.
I'd like to try something like this again in the future
