It's so strange thinking of the two of them apart from each other. I really wanted to capture them today while remembering what came before

IKR................

Yeah, but there will always be something special about Atsumina. So what do you think about the explanation the overseas transfers? About them just being going for 6 months or a year to study abroad. As a Sae oshi, I am relieved. I knew she wouldn't disappear from AKB but still I have to admit I didn't like the idea of her being left out.

I guess there's doubts about if the management is forcing them but IDK...Harugon seem to really want to go. Maybe the girls that will go to foreign countries will get more promotion once they come back or something to make up for their troubles.
I'm not worry about Sae tho. AKB is actually pretty popular in China. Their biggest fanclub have over 1.69 million people [link] and even the news about Acchan's graduation on Let's TV have over 23 million views.
If Sae can pull in enough fans from China to vote for her, she might even get center lol~ XD

I hope you don't cry. But I guess that is one way of saying this was a successful piece, since it provokes so much emotion

Nice work Sumo! I know they'd sure be proud to see such nice artwork portraying them. Have you managed to get any of your drawings viewed by the subjects themselves?

:iconsumo0172:
Sumo0172 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks. Far as I know they haven't. Fans keep telling me to post them on twitter cuz they are more likely to see them there but I don't have an account.

:iconr1venkassle:
R1VENkassle Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, that's a good call on the twitter but another good way would be to post them in related forums and make sure your drawings have like the person's name as the filename. That way, they can discover it when they "google" themselves :D It's worked for me before!

I'm a member of one of their forums but I never post or even visit that often. But I may try I've got a pretty large collection of illustrations I've done of them.

The thing is J-Pop idolss particularly women are forbidden to interact with fans online, and of course I can't send them stuff through the mail cuz there addresses are secret. In fact 5 members of a sister group called HKT48 were fired because they were exchanging emails and IMs with male fans. Idols is Japan are very different from celebrities in America. There are ways to give them gifts directly but i'd have to actually go to Japan. And there is no sign of that happening anytime soon. No I guess I'll have to give twitter a try. And as you suggested their forums.
