That's the point, you fucking pleb. It's a satire of normal hyper-sexualized, school girls who are only "awkward" because the story says so by showing a girl who is actually a loser and does stupid shit, something majority of anime watchers can relate to on some level. If you don't like it than go watch Girls-Bravo or something.
Look for WataMote, my confused friend.
For some reason this makes Tomoko look like Haganai's Yozora's lost sister.
I really like tomoko but for fuck's sake, those headphones ! it ruins it all
I will never except smooth Tomoko.
untamed bush tomoko is sexier and probably more canon
There's at least the OVA to look forward to... ;_;
For some reason Yuu being so hot makes me want to pity fuck Tomoko the hardest.
i never thought someone would post my drawing, thanks anon-kun
You people, saying Tomoko is your waifu...you realize that chance came and and went, right? In high school there was that quiet girl who no one ever noticed. She could've been yours, but of course she was invisible to you. Then some anime comes along and you suddenly claim that this type of person is your ideal woman, even though you had ample opportunity to actually get with your "ideal woman" long before Watamote was a thing.
...I remember the delivery back on /d/... Thanks again!
There WAS one in high school, but later on I found out she's like that because she's shy of being a closet lesbian...
Also, have you drawn something else lately? Tomoko related maybe? I'd love to see.
She is extremely lewd, but the anime and manga aren't fap worthy material, I'm afraid after watching reading you'll end up only with [spoiler]feels[/spoiler]
speaking from personal experience, tomoko is going to admit that she is really, extremely gay (in a 'guys are only even slightly useful for fucking, girls are where friendship and romance are at' way) at some point between 16 and 20, then spend several more years wallowing in self-disgust and pity about it before even attempting to find a way to fix the trainwreck her life becomes
>tfw just want to give Tomoko a big hug and make her feel loved
I only fell in love with watamote because my friend sent me a link to the intro, alternatively, the something happened with Witch craft works, and kill la kill, and baka to test, and every other anime I like.
Normally, rear view of pussy doesn't do anything for me. Like, yeah, whatever, it's done to death.
But this? For some reason, this particular image is driving me nuts. Makes me want to taste her asshole.
I ain't the artist, but I requested those.
The artist is ParadoxBroken. He's pretty good indeed.
>DFC panties bra
Why isn't this a thing yet?
I tried it myself, but I was just as socially awkward about it and she kept talking about cheese. Kinda weirded me out too much, but in hindsight it was obvious it was just her nerves.
Then next year she dyed her hair and became some kinda goth/emo which ruined her look, and I lost interest. Regret nothing.
There were several. But they weren't good people either. They attempted to mock or humiliate each other in order to try to get approval from the meaner "normal" girls.
I'd have been an idiot to try. Just because someone is a victim doesn't mean they're a good person.
Had to think of this character while listening to this.
"...little pretty thing living in a hole I got love for you..."
Someone gotta make an AMV to this!
They're saying that if there was a real life equivalent of Tomoko, she'd be ugly
Or in other words, if Tomoko as she was was in the real world, she'd be popular
Because even moderately attractive girls are never losers
I actually had a girlfriend Back in high school I'd consider pretty close. Nerdy hobbies (also a few artsy ones), very few friends, short, flat, smart but awkward. I thought she was cute as fuck. Too bad she went batshit crazy...
Many people now
I tried, she became my best friend. Tried furthering it, got beyond friendzones and she told me to fuck off. Thats why you stay towards the more social real life girls. A lot of people here like Tomoko though because they see themselves in her.
i tried to start a relationship with a couple of the shy girl in the corner types, but every single one was a little off somehow. like one kept talking about sex in front of my mom. one was literally afraid of penises and tried and failed to pretend I didnt have one. and the last one was going good, til she started talking about kids. I dont need that shit, I can barely afford my expenses. current girlfriend is more sane than them, and she's a party girl that originally only talked to me cuz someone at school said I had Roxys on me. now I give her mom about $20 in suboxins a week for free.
It's kinda why the manga isn't as popular in Japan as it is here. They feel it hits a bit too close to home.
Also the author was at one point much like Tomoko. She refuses to do chapters about bullying because that hit too close to home for her as well.
>She refuses to do chapters about bullying because that hit too close to home for her as well.
Considering I already find Watamote more depressing than funny as it is, I'm glad to hear this won't be happening.
yeah, except age-of-consent lolis are a myth, and any woman with this body type becomes a bitch after they find out tou're attracted to children. trust me bw0 I know bout that lolicon life.
I always wondered about when people draw her naked why they leave off the public hair. She has extremely unkempt hair, I'm not why anyone would have any expectation that she would actually take care of her other bodily parts.
>take care of
Hairy snatches are great; there's nothing to take care of.
>one was literally afraid of penises and tried and failed to pretend I didnt have one
Haha, oh wow. That sounds like the beginning of a rape hentai.
>She refuses to do chapters about bullying because that hit too close to home for her as well.
Watching Tomoko get bullied ... I mean, fuck, the manga is so sad already. I hope her life turns out well, but it's essentially a regular release cash cow so that won't happen, unfortunately.
Yeah, that's my problem with WataMote and DMC both. I like the main characters and want to see them get their shit together, stop sabotaging themselves by going full retard at the slightest provocation, and move towards happier and more fulfilling lives... and that is fundamentally antithetical to the purpose of the series. Tomoko can never be what I want her to be, and it fucking breaks my heart.
posted this last time. her awkwardness in every situation is awesome
She's 15 and Japanese, if she doesn't shave it's gotta be a jungle down there. But she seems like the kinda girl who might focus on that one thing and shave it in an effort to be like the American girls on the internet.
Unless she's a good person at heart, which is debatable in Tomoko's case, the sheltered life means they're prone to latching on to anyone/thing that gives them attention.
My 21 year old sister left a really great guy with a future in engineering for some balding 30 year old fag who designs apps she met while studying overseas.
Considering the lack of lewd Tomoko in this thread I created one myself.
I'm extremely new and bad at this, but I love drawing Tomoko.
I feel embarrassed of myself. I actually scored the highest in my class during the 2 semesters of Anatomy in university I had.
I promise to git gud and fill the web with lewds, anon!
Do not worry anon, you've got all of us hopefuls on your side who enjoy the viewing of great r34 works. We believe in you. so do not let the dream die and never surrender. Goodluck and godspeed.
I wish you the best of luck. You had better pull through, I believe in you.
I dated that girl for 3 years. best years of my life, even if she was super clingy. she had 0 self confidence, shut in, never had a job or anything like that. I needed space, and then she got cancer, it put a strain on our relationship and my brain. after she was in remission we broke up. less than a month later she was with someone else, less that a year after that shes engaged.
haven't been in a serious relationship since.
Daily reminder that Nico Tanigawa is a nickname for two people. the writer is a man. The woman only illustrates (and btw, badly). So the story is entirely based on male experiences projected on a female character just to attract waifufags
Actually i knew a cute girl like me in high school and i really liked her but was too shy to do anything. So you are right...
Now i met an great cute nerdy girl almost like me and we do much together. But now even as an adult i am still too shy to ask her out. strange world...
Anyways to all of you: great artworks. Love them :)
After watching Watamote I am sure to not only go out more but to also pay attention to those poor souls who may appear to be afraid to even look at anyone.
>tfw all the Tomokos of the world don't go out because they have the internet
I'll assume you want to improve. Try to integrate the arms into the torso more- as it is, the lines you're drawing representing the torso cut into the arm far too much, making it look like it's attached by barely a thread of flesh/making it look like she hasn't got proper shoulders. Make the arms bigger, stop them from being so noodly. First image's right arm is a particular offender, you've stretched it so it'll reach to the surface the hand's resting on. On that note, if you're going to have a character be in a particular pose (Here: leaning on that... thing), you have to plan for that pose. Make a small, throwaway sketch of the entire scene before you start doind anything for the main drawing/sketch. Hell, make five, each one taking no more than ten seconds.
What's more, you'll have to work on symmetry and general anatomy. Try drawing a vertical line to orient yourself by, so you don't end up with a horrible mutant with 70% of their body weight on the left side of the body and a spine that doesn't connect properly between different sections of the body. (Not that that's exactly what happened here, it's just come dangerously close.)
Draw both eyes, even if one is going to be obscured. You can always rub it out later, and it'll help symmetrise the face.
Keep working, mate. Draw lots, draw from life, and you'll improve. Just make sure to keep having fun while doing it. Thanks for putting the time into making OC.
Thanks for the advice I will remember all that.
I spent some time trying to improve, but it still feels like shit. I guess fun is all I have left.
