About a year ago my friend and I created squid OCs that are best friends! Mine is on the left and her name is Panelope, and the one on the right is my friend's named Canteloupe!
I love this. Notwithstanding the fact that it's Splatoon and everyone recognises these characters from a mile away, the art style is so sweet. I love the pastel colours you used. It's not 'in your face' like other Splatoon fanart I've seen so far; it just looks like a beautiful shared moment between friends that you want to let last forever -- the colours really do play a part in conveying that to me.
It feels like a little something out of a children's book, too. That feels like a plus in my book ^_^
Although the "splatoon thing" is now a bit overused here in NG, I refuse to ignore the bright colors, that mixing it with the linework. And are so cute UwU.
Given how I love splatoon in general, this is GREAT
