In this deviation here ([link]
) I showed off some of my Ranaka fanart from 2001-2004, and asked for suggestions of which I should pick to redraw.
This drawing got the second-highest number of votes. The original is...pretty awful to look at, really, but I put a lot of love into it, and I think (I hope) that it shows at least some early signs of my love of putting some element of story into my drawings.
In this case, the story was that Akane was getting rescued after some random prince or other had kidnapped her for his princess - as usual. Artistic license meant that she and Ranma got to hug for a change, instead of blushing at each other from three or four feet away - but other than that, it's a pretty average day for them, I think.
Second of two.
