The redesigns I happened to have my sketchbook open to when I remembered to draw that panel for mangafu earlier. No comment on soe of their picks for finalists…except that I really really wish the rib picture was in there.
One day Vani and I were talking about what flavor we thought the other was, and while I said she’d be Salty-sweet she said I’d be Bittersweet. Cue me getting flustered because I wasn’t sure if she liked me or not yet.
Just like I always thinking of rampant alcoholism when I think of Mel, I generally think of ironic weabooism when I think of Vani. We ended up hacking together a bunch of silly things in an attempt to make a super weeaboo plot where all of the characters are named after flavors/condiments/etc.
Upper left is Bittersweet, the main character, who transforms to fight evil with the power of baking/cooking/whatever. Upper right is Sweet&Sour, her best friend who secretly transforms to prevent Bittersweet from defeating the true villain. Bottom is Salt&Pepper, who runs the bakery Bittersweet works at, and is not very secretly the villain, though she doesn’t recognise it. It might be because Bittersweet has a crush on him. He also has two henchmen named Ketchup and Mustard, last I recall.
It was all very silly and the general plot/relationships/etc change each time I go back to it since it was so horrible hacked together the first time through haha
