is one of the very first sketches (that I had kept) of Tairu, when I made him. Then I didn’t have an official name for him yet. (Good lord I was heavy on the text emotes, in handwriting even lol. So basically, this)
He was inspired by the anime Ranma ½. Now after mentioning that, you probably cannot un-see the striking similarities of his old costume. But hey, inspiration is what influences most of us to do the things we do. It all starts somewheres.
After looking at the old drawing I decided to sketch him out again. That felt very nostalgic lol. He was so tiny and care-bearish with little pink cheeks.
Anyways, felt like sharing a 2007 version of Tairu Panda. Weirded out? XD
