Katawa Shoujo - Hanako [Commission] by dmy-gfx Katawa Shoujo - Hanako [Commission] by dmy-gfx
I'm a bit late posting this one, but it was a very nice piece to work on, and I've always wanted to draw more from Katawa Shoujo. So here's Hanako!

Hanako's route wasn't my favourite (as I've said before, that was Lilly's), but I did really like the way it tied together with Lilly's - playing one gives you insight into the other. They overlap a fair bit because of it, so I wouldn't play them back to back. Standing on it's own, Hanako's route had a really good message its own that was presented in a way which probably made a lot of people rethink how they interact with people.

If you've not checked KS out yet and want to know a bit about Hanako herself, well - after an accident scarred half her body, she's understandably a bit shy and self-conscious. She spends a lot of her free time with her nose buried in a book in the library, and doesn't really say a lot to anyone but her closest friend, Lilly. If you'd like to find out more, just play Katawa Shoujo - it's free, after all.

No matter the route, it's such a wonderful feeling seeing Hanako come into her own person. What I really love most about your art featuring her is that she looks happy. I can easily imagine this as being a scene further down either of her routes, because in each one she really blossoms into a stronger, more confident person.

Man I loved Hanako from the moment I saw her.

I cried during her path. Probably more than I should've.

Heh. I actually preferred Lilly's route over Hanako's because, frankly, I think it just ends better for Hanako. No forced drama needed to get her to open up to people; just her two closest friends giving her some space to bloom on her own.

As someone who is naturally very shy around others and is quite introverted, I loved Hanako's route the most and really empathised with her discomfort around others (even if I lack any significant scars). Also, her Act 2 introduction just had such incredible animation and music, just really haunting and really led well into her story.
