MaVe - The rival is here by Saruke MaVe - The rival is here by Saruke
Art piece for my 100 Theme Challenge.

Number 061: Kyousousha - Rival
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I've been wanting to use this theme for quiet a while and by making Venus I finally have something that fits it too <3

This picture was such a pain |D Sketching was easy, ink was easy but colors, dear god it took me like 3 hours just to find a good combination. I still, not quite satisfied actually but I just don't want to poke at it anymore >3>.

So, before Venus, Mars never really had a person she could really call her rival, but when the agency stuck them both together she suddenly felt the pressure of having to better than him.

Doesn't help that Venus loves teasing her xD He sees her more like a friend to have fun with than a rival and when she denies him the friendship he results to teasing her in him own annoying and adorable way. He is convinced he is cuter than her and throws it in her face every chance he gets, of course Mars always tends to counter with the fact that she would probably make a better man than he would ever be, but her teasing isn't nearly as effective as his xD

I swear the background took no more than 10 minutes, it's supposed to be a setup for a photo shoot, and Venus is working Mars' last never before they get to go on. Mars is however very good at shutting him of during the shoots, she treats him like white noise, she does that with everything when she's being photographed. Much to Venus' disappointment.

Enjoy <3

Art, Harada Yayoi -MARS- & Endou Ryohei -VENUS- :iconsaruke:

I commented on this before but Im going to add a bit more here. >.>
Ive aready said I liked the expressions, and yes. I do. ^.^ But the outfits. The outfits look amazing. You gave them both awesome colors, and designs to their outfits, and the background, regardless of being possibly no more than 10 minutes sketched in? Looks really good. It lets the viewer know where they are with a quick glance around the page, and then back to the characters at front where all the action really is.
n n Great job <33

Good job, too bad that the background is sketchy, but still it gives a good atmosphere of it. :D

Manager: Venus, Mars. Quit squabbling and look cute. Your on in 5.
Venus: See, he said my name first :3
Mars: >__>
Venus: Quit ignoring me, damn it.

|3 I can see this fight. I adore these two sooooooooo much, and you did such a lovely job. The cherry print Mars is wearing is too adorable, and I feel like a bad person for wanting to steal Venus's shirt |3.

Nicely done, as always, Saru :heart:

haha no rp-ing on my arts please |D it goes for everyone lol

But the conversation is pretty accurate, though Mars knows the manager like her better than Venus because she does what she's told lol Venus is such a troublemaker, he takes nothing to seriously.

I'd steal all their clothes if I could xD they're awesome. Thank you <3

Oh goodness, this was too cute to pass up an opportunity to comment!

First off, I love Venus and I adore what he's wearing in this image. and your detail to clothing is fantastic, as always.

It's nice getting to know a little background between the two; I can relate to the rivalry topic of it all and I could image those two to be quite a pair to watch when they're 'arguing'. In this, it really looks like Mars is trying her hardest not to get angry at Venus ahaha. ♥

I love your characters, I always will. They're so well made and I just fall in love with them each time you most up a new image; no lie. They're all so realistic compared to a lot of other characters I see thrown around. ♥

haha x3 thank you very much <3 I hope to draw Venus a lot more |D hopefully in some more manly clothes as well lol I just couldn't help myself with this outfit, it was so adorable I couldn't pass on it orz. I'm really proud of the ink I did on the dress shirt, it turned out really good.

Mars is used to much more mature colleagues so Venus can easily get her going when he finds the right buttons to push xD
