As mentioned, despite being a winner in the main poll, Ikuta Erina had gotten the short-end of the stick in the tiebreakers. She received 20% of the vote for oshi with one single vote and her chosen outfit, Maji Desu ka Ska!, also received one vote.
While I sketched this one on Friday, in light of increasing fatigue on my part, I took the weekend off to recharge. Since it was Labor Day weekend in addition to that, one can see some justification in it (especially in the above pictures where signs can be slightly apparent).
I will admit that the pose (which I chose to break the monotony of Zukki and Rihoriho’s pics) was difficult to get down, primarily because it was based on a screencap that only showed Eripon’s upper body. Yes, the bottom half is mostly derived from approximating on her pose from various references.
I tried out a new inking technique with this and Mizuki’s pic… which may be very noticeable because I forgot to resize it when I began to work on them proper and it was too ate when I realized it. Regardless, this allowed me to get this and Mizuki’s pic done on time (helped by the fact I worked on them somewhat simultaneously).
