In any case, the real reason that this is so late is because it started off, I swear, as just a plain old sketch, sometime this morning -
Naruto Mary Sue - Mai (and Naruto)
Basically, what you have here is post-orig Jounin!Mai - with, as you can see, Naruto. WHO IS TALLER THAN HER NOW ZOMG. (That's what my little scribbly note says, at least.) She's scowly, she's... not facing you, and then she's Laughing (... at someone's pain?), she's Just Try Me, and she's WANGST. My gawd, I need to get a life. I'm sort of upset because I made the faces so big on the far side, but. I wanted to fit in some other cool stuff, too - tiger!Mai and possibly even dragon!Mai, which may be a future sketch of the girls, since I have NO freaking CLUE what dragon!girls will look like - but I ran out of room. And, uh, time, considering it's almost 3 am and I work in less than twelve hours. -also, she's wearing leggings, I swear. Like Lee and Gai's spandex. Although when I realized that's what I'd drawn on her, I promptly face-faulted and bawled to Max about the travesty I'd committed... but at least it's got a place in plot, as Mai trains with Lee and Gai for a small period of time. Oh, I'm sorry - you didn't care? Well.
In conclusion. Why do my characters have such huge hair? I mean, come on, Mai.
