Poki TS Cute Final: Takumi's Portrait of Beauty

Takumi sat behind the counter of the Yamamoto Family Art Shop, with a bandage around his left leg after tearing a calf muscle in the last talent show entry. He looked gloomy and disheartened, meanwhile, his mother brought him a cup of tea.

 

“Thank you, mother.” He sipped the tea and looked down at the quarter-empty cup. He sighed and said, “I have tried my best, mother. I wanted to be seen as fierce or suave or intelligent to impress the judges. Yet with both rounds, I have had constant mishaps. Granted, I still won, but I can’t help but still feel… unsatisfied, unfulfilled. As if I were to win this talent show, it would be a hollow victory. Now that I am in the final round, should my next attempt to meet the standards of the panel be thwarted by fate once again and feel like a fool?”

 

His mother had entered Takumi into the talent show under the cute category, but only telling him it was for general talent. So every round was a misinterpreted attempt for Takumi to look as dignified or cool as possible. She looked over to her son and suggested, “Maybe you shouldn’t do what others expect you to be good at. Maybe you should do what you know you’re good at.”

 

With that, he was struck with inspiration. He knew the one thing he was good at: painting. Not just painting, but painting life’s most beautiful moments and creations. He got out of his seat, then yelped from the pain of his tore leg and moved much slower, and began to paint. He spent a whole week crafting and perfecting what he considered beautiful, and by the time the talent show judges came to the art shop to see what he had to offer, Takumi, bags under his eyes from tireless work and paint covered all over his clothes and body, presented a portrait of the love of his life: Manami Asano of Noir Vale.

 

When asked why he chose this as his entry, he replied “I have a gift for capturing the beauty in all things, and there is nothing I find more beautiful than my beloved Manami-chan. She is so gentle and kind and loving that I felt she was the most appropriate to paint. So I did this, all off the top of my head.” The judges awed and applauded. They thanked him for the presentation and left. For the first time in this contest, Takumi smiled as he sighed in exhaustion. There was a sense of honesty about presenting his favoured skill which satisfied the Smeargle. Even if he didn’t win, he felt proud of his effort. “I wonder if Manami-chan will like this as a gift…” He murmured as he blushed and smiled at the thought.

_______________________________________________________________

Man, this took me all night to do. I feel so tired and I am literally just surviving on iced coffee and pure willpower, but I am quite pleased with how this picture came out. That Photoshop smudge tool is what makes the painting of Manami look as good as it does, so full credit goes to that beautiful thing. Manami came out so good because of it! ;w; My only regret is not adding more to the background to make it look less bare. It still irks me even now. Anyway, this talent show was a blast! Had a lot of fun, don't know if I will win, but I tried my best. Just need to organise my time better so I can work on these earler and not pull all-nighters. :"D

Pokimono Talent Show Round 2: Takumi VS Mimoto
Hey everyone, this is my contest entry for the :iconpokimono: Talent show! This is for round 2 of the cute category, and my partner for this roudn is :iconbabyrodent:. The theme for this one is bows, so there's a lot of them in here. :P

We both talked to each other a lot about what to do (btw, you are such a sweetie and very patient, thank you!) and we decided to have seperate pictures of Takumi and Mimoto showing how cute they are to an audience!

What I planned was that Takumi had no idea what type of category he's in. He just knows the prompt and tries to look impressive. In this case, he's trying to do some cool Karate with bows, so... "cool".

Man, it took me a long time to finish this. Sorry for the lines looking rough and imcomplete. I had to rush it a bit to meet the deadline. I hope you all got a small chuckle out of this entry like I did. You can check out BabyRodent's part right here: babyrodent.deviantart.com/art/… Have a good day, everyone!

Nice, for me, I think it was the movie review of Norbit? I could be wrong there, but I did start listening to their full audio reviews when their Sucker Punch review came out. :P
