HVK48 ZeKi duo by MamoruAwayuki HVK48 ZeKi duo by MamoruAwayuki
Contest Entry for :iconzekilove: to celebrate Yuki's new haircut :)
Theme: Draw a ZeKi moment with Yuki in her new short hair.

My first reaction to Yuki's new hair cut was: "SHE LOOKS LIKE ATSUKO MAEDA FROM AKB48!!!" *jaw drop*

For those who don't know. AKB48 is the most popular idol group in Japan consisting of 48 girls and Atsuko Maeda is/was number 1 in the whole group. She recently graduated from the group to pursue her dream as an actress.

Thus the inspiration for my entry. Draw ZeKi as members of HVK48 (Hino's Vampire Knight 48...I'm sure there's around 48 characters =_= ). It's a psuedo-reference to the several idol groups consisting of 48 members...

And thus Zero, against his will, was dragged into the world of stardom and pop idols, being paired up with super cute Yuki Kuran as a duo. With a little make over and a new wardrobe, Zero fits in perfectly in the music scene. All that's left is for him to smile ^_^.

Can the two of them beat out the top idol in the group, Kaname? Who knows.....~~~

============= ========= ======

I didn't fully copy an AKB48 costume and used a plaid pattern which is popular on most of their outfits.

Done in Photoshop CS5. Completion time ~15 hours(...woo to the number of errors I made XD and 20 layers dedicated to lighting+effects)

BUT it was a lot of fun and I'm glad it turned out about 75% of how I envisioned it to be.

The biggest problem I ran into was posing the two together and what to do with their hands. Originally, Yuki's arm and hand was blocking Zero's *body* and I had to fix it for fangirl approval -^.^-. I tried to make him droolworthy...

=========== ======= =======

The conversation I had with the two while photoshopping away.

Y: Wow, that dress is cute. And you look good too, Zero!
Z: Just how long will you make a mockery of my character?! I'm a vampire hunter, not a pop idol!
M: There's not that much difference. You're still loved, respected and admired as both.
Z: I'm suppose to be feared and despised.
M: They put you at the top of the Hunter Association for a reason. You're at least respected.
Y: You sing so well too, Zero! Much better than Kaname-nii for sure.
Z: You think so?...
M: Does she have a reason to lie? Even I think so too.
Y: Hey Zero, smile for me.
Z: My smile is for your eyes only. *glares at Mamoru*
M: Okay...I'll leave...=_=... ...

I'm so disliked by Zero XD

I came here for Zerorin with half-opened shirt!!~~ He's so freaking sexy and I love his hair!~~ :iconlarunplz:

I hope one day they'll make character songs for the VK characters!~~ Because I want to hear Mamoru Miyano-sama to sing in Zero's voice!!~~ :la: I already have so many Mamo's song in my MP3, and I'm sure I'll love it so much if he sings for Zerorin!!~~ :la:

I heard Daisuke Kishio's singing before, he CAN sing but well he isn't an actual singer, so Mamo-chama wins in that field!~~ XD There's even a song for the anime La Corda D'oro 2, where both Mamo-chama and Kishio-san sing together along with 4 other guys for a song! XD Mamo stands out for sure!~

Mamo vs. Kishio
In terms of singing ability, Mamo wins by a long shot. He's got more CDs and actual concerts.
In terms of voice acting though, I think Kishio has more skill simply because he's been doing it for longer and has done a greater range of roles than Mamo.

:iconilikeitplz: Yeshh... I agree 100%!~

Mamo-chan's concert is simply amazing (I just watched it online though ;-; ). It's sweet how in one of his concerts, he ended up crying because he's so touched by his fan's support :squee:

Kishio-san's range of roles is simply so wide indeed X3 :la:

*cough* Especially for a yaoi-fangirl like me, I know to how much extend Kishio-san could pull on his voice acting. His voice when voicing Kaname-chama, is his dominant-character type of voice! X3
