I started drawing sketches of Keiko just for the hell of it, and decided I'd try and turn it into something a little more. Here's the original sketches. I didn't use them all:

They're my fan characters based on the world of Maria-sama ga Miteru
(season 1). Just something for fun. I have much more of an extensive story written for the characters sitting on my harddrive -- I finished writing their story for NaNoWriMo two years ago. I was thinking if I could remove them from Marimite, and with this comic I almost did. I experimented with different uniforms, but it felt disrespectful of the characters. If they were born to be a fan-thing then it should remain that way.
All of this was done using my Surface Pro 3 and Manga Studio 5. Probably took something like 30+ hours.
