Tails has an afternoon nap by manaita Tails has an afternoon nap by manaita
The Japanese words written on left side of this pic mean
"Midsummer greetings"
Today is hot like the dog days in Japan.

Kuh...I mixed up Sonic's left leg with his right leg;;
So I did correction of error soon and had re-submitted it.

You never answered my request, and I felt bad keeping my friend waiting, so... I hope you don't mind, but I wrote the chapter anyway (it's short because, if you'll remember, each of these chapters is only 100 words). As promised, I gave you full credit and included a link to your pic.

Here's a copy of the chapter (which is both on here and on; the title is Latin for "dove," which seemed like a nice title for it since that's the symbol for peace):

Drabble 387: "Columba"

Sonic's getting nervous.
The kid got up early this morning, mumbling something about enjoying the nice sunshine after a week of rain, and it's high noon.
The hedgehog is zooming through the forest, looking for his brother. No sign of him.
He doesn't want to, but Sonic starts thinking the worst:
What if Eggman got him? What if he were hurt? What if—?
He steps over a log and freezes.
Sleeping on the ground, looking very relaxed indeed, is Tails.
Sonic is relieved.
Zipping home and back, he drapes a blanket over his little bro.
"I'm right here, kid."

Oh sorry for the belated reply. I found your comment just now! Really sorry...
And if you got an inspiration from my pic rather it's very honored for me. Lovely funfiction always makes me enjoy. Thank you for your concern, and please give your friend my regards.:hug:

Merely common courtesy, me dear. ^U^ And I will. ^U^ I'm glad you're not mad. XD I'm happy you enjoyed that I wrote something based on your pic, too! Hopefully you liked it. I wasn't sure I did it justice. Kinda felt like it was missing something... XD Rock on!

May I write a chapter based on this for my 100-word Sonic-Tails brotherly drabble collection, 'Two Tails and a Blur?' I'll give you full credit and add a link to this pic! The reason I'm asking is my friend requested I do a drabble on this, and I wanted to ask permission first. XD If you want to see samples of my work, all of my chapters are in my gallery. Oh, and I'll send you a link to the chapter when I'm done (if you let me do it, that is)! *U* Rock on, and thanks!

LOVE the chapter, by the way!

It makes me want to lie down next to Tails.

I like how you draw it , soft blur or whatever that is makes me want to sleep !

wonderful drawing :nod:
I really like the setting and how there are only bits of the sunlight that hit them here and there :)
DCLeadboot Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Tails is cute!
Though, I'm trying to figure out what Sonic's thinking. He looks bored, just sitting there doing nothing... but on the other hand, he can't just go away and leave Tails unprotected, can he!
Ah, that's friendship for you! Tails has complete faith in Sonic, so he can sleep safe... :aww:

Nani??? O____O I mean... Wow!!! ^_____^

This totally attracted my attention! And as soon as I browsed through your account I feel the need to check your work in more detail in future. :)
This is a really pleasant and summer-like oekaki of Sonic and Tails... It looks adorable... X3

Fantastic work on the was you made this shine, I really appreciate the way you handled the reflection of the sun's light on Sonic and Tails, the leaves and shadows. ^__^ The drawing of Tails sleeping like that is totally kawaii... X3 Looks so cuddly. :)

Hope to see more of your fantastic work when I have time! Keep it up Manaita!! ^_^

Wow! You know what this makes me think of? A front a postcard! And I would so buy it if it were real ^^
manaita Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
Well, I think I should sell this, if you say so=p
I drew this for a summer greeting instead of sending post card to DA people.
That is why it looks like a front of a post card.

Thank you for +fav:heart:

The sense of this pic is wonderful. It is funny yet sad that you are hot over there wile you did this pic. ^^;

Sonic's expression is priceless. I've always loved when he looks like that. Reminds me of me with my little brother. :D And his lazy look on his face really is just fun to watch :XD: Tails is one of my favorite characters. I love the way you made him sleep, very kawaii. His mouth open and pose is really just fun. :lol:

You made really good with the sorroundings, it really looks like they are in a forest under a tree ^^ Your shadowing skills and lighting are the higlight of this pic!

I hope the weather goes well for where you live ^^
