I lied. I said I wasn’t going to do any sketches yesterday, but by the time evening hit I could no longer resist (which is something that genuinely surprises me). Since I started late I just mostly did a quick single wash of color, but neither of the shots have very dynamic lighting so it kinda works.
Anyways, how adorable is Cha Dong Joo? I forgot how much cute is in this episode (both these scenes are in the first few minutes!). I love how in the first shot CDJ is basically explaining that he just “punished” her for lying (after cutely studying her face and kissing her twice I might add). If I was Woo Ri, I would work on becoming a pathological liar immediately! I also love how we’re first given the cliche post-kiss clutching-of-the-chest response, and then CDJ is like “wait a second!” and chases after her, which leads to the second scene.
I’m using the word “love” in this post a lot, but I can’t help it. I love the friendship between CDJ and Young Kyu. I also love that CDJ isn’t above using that friendship to get invited over for dinner, and make a hug with WR seem natural. His giddiness and joy in this whole scene is totally infectious, and he even makes the scene extra cute by explaining that he likes her, and running off holding her hand (he seems so boyish!).
Woo Ri’s response throughout all this is pretty funny too. In both scenes it looks like she’s just thinking, “What is going on?” They’re perfect for each other though, and it cracks me up that she’s just as bold as he is in later episodes (and he is equally bewildered!).
Anyways, my YFFM Episode 8 download is seconds from finishing, so off I go! I will be shocked if I don’t end up drawing YFFM today.
