P3/P4: Friendships by Alias-Hugo P3/P4: Friendships by Alias-Hugo
Persona friends!

Kanji and Bebe’s manly sewing club (making a cat-plushie version of someone is true friendship ok)

Ken and Maiko circa Persona 4 Arena, establishing a social link.

Fuuka and Saori’s socially awkward sisterhood (with Natsuki as the voice of reason). I wonder who she made the chocolates for?

And uh… Takaya taking an awkward, sudden nap on Jin. Nothing says friendship like suddenly deciding to take a nap on someone’s shoulder, setting up a hit-site together and sometimes holding hands during a battle, amirite? (I mean, other than making cat plushies of one another but I think Chidori is the only member of Strega who can sew).

Any questions/theories, feel free to comment here! :D

Thanks! I'm trying to make the characters from this series more cartoony and exaggerated with easily identifiable faces.

I like drawing Takaya because he's already really tall and skinny in the game, and is basically an evil 70's tattoo-sleeved hobo Jesus. I mean, that by itself is reason enough for me to draw him

evil 70's Jesus?

aren't you talking about Charlie Manson?

A lot less of a mastermind, and much younger but yeah that general look. The STREGA team aren't really a big threat in the game, I just kind of feel sorry for them? Like, they're completely messed up and crazy but it makes sense why they would be that way.

Well, I don't want to spoil things since a movie is coming out of it this autumn, you might want to watch it. Evil hobo Jesus runs a group called STREGA who are trying to stop the heroes in Persona 3.

It's animated, and seems to be made by the same people who made the cutscenes for the sequel game (and the animated series of it) so I'm cautiously optimistic! At least, it will look very like the games themselves.

Thanks very much! I've noticed I just draw all the side characters in things - I suppose Ken and Fuuka could be considered part of the main cast but they're basically the least prominent of them.

Oh, and Kanji. He's pretty prominent, or at least popular.

I know what you mean, side characters tend to be incredibly fun

I seem to nearly assume I won't be able to relate to a main character (in the persona series the characters are basically your dialogue choices but like Yu, if you look at them from the third-person, they're these amazingly cool, talented, charismatic individuals. And I sometimes forget how to go up stairs in the middle of walking up stairs)
I don't know if any of the Persona 4 characters really line up with my mental image of myself! :XD: I look eerily like Izanami though, we basically have the same face except she always looks angry and I can't really make an angry face very well. (okay, more like her as the gas station attendant)

In Persona 3 portable there's a character who looks even more like me and it's hilarious (to me). She's a minor social link who constantly apologies.
Out of the main cast I'd probably relate most to Fuuka (the girl with blue/green hair) though, she's very well-intentioned but awkward. :D

yeah, with main characters, they mostly either go for someone you'd look up to, or someone who the average audience would relate to (us not being average people)

In Persona 4 we have Yu for the former and Yosuke for the latter. I think Chie is supposed to be the gal we can relate to? IDK.
I like Chie but she strongly reminds me of a friend of mine so that's all I see when I look at her. :D

In the Persona series they tend to pull the whole "that cheerful person in the background who chimes in every now and then with vaguely helpful exposition and perhaps a silly joke? THEY ARE THE TRUE PUPPETMASTER!" ...leading me to believe I am secretly the true puppetmaster. It would be such a twist, even I wouldn't see it coming! OR WOULD I? :D

I know what you mean
kinda like the Lutece twins in Bioshock infinite
at first they seem like quirky side-characters that occasionally provide you with exposition
but as the game progresses... [link]

Ah yes! I've heard of them! The Lutece 'twins' :D

The idea sounds awesome to me, are they evil though? I thought they were good(ish) from what snippets I've seen and read. But yeah they are much more important than they seem at first glance.
