I've been following the Smash Bros hype pretty closely because I am slightly obsessed (not that anyone is surprised). Heck, it's not even the first Rain/Smash crossover I considered (see also Rainalina and Zero Suit Ana ;P). It's probably a bit late for me to be doing something like this, since the full roster is known now. Still, I happened to be drawing while listening to the Nintendo Treehouse thing (not even up to Smash yet), and this suddenly popped into my head and I'm like, "Oh, what the hell? Why not?"
Originally, I was going to draw her as just a Mii Fighter, but then I remembered the Mii I used in the comic can't be done. There is no hairstyle that covers one eye, so any Rain Miis would be sadly kind of an accurate. I might still draw it for the hell of it, but it couldn't technically be done in-game (but while I haven't tried other characters from the comic, I imagine most of the rest of the cast could be made).
The design seen here is based on one of Rain's costumes from the original fantasy version of the story. Obviously, the current Rain probably couldn't fight with a sword (much less the way the old one did. Hint: the sheath is also a weapon). It makes me feel a little nostalgic seeing her like this again. The quality is a little iffy here, but whatevs. It's just a little throwaway thing I did because I could. Still, I hope you like it.
I'm not saying you should draw like a three page comic of Rain messing someone up with her sword but I begging you to OM please do it please gods... Pwease... =^-^=
OMG, THIS IS SO AWESOME. I never expected a Smash Bros piece from you. Rain looks awesome in it.
Oh, I'm a big Smash fan. Just spent like the last hour playing with the early access demo. XD
Now I want to make a Rain Mii Fighter when I get this game
I want to too, but sadly, I can't. The right hairstyle doesn't exist for Miis. There's no "hair covers one eye" option. I guess one could improvise, but it wouldn't feel right to me. You know how I am; if it's not accurate, it's not happening. It just wouldn't be right.
Next time I sit down with the Mii Maker, I'm gonna see if any of the other characters could work at least (I imagine they could for the most part).
Does Rain have to be so hot?? AHHH
Rain, could you please stop being so hot, it's driving me crazy because I can't actually date you
Where can I find the original version?
