Japanese Nadine?

To those who’ve been following my webcomic, you’d know that I favour the use of OpenCanvas 3 when I draw digital art. So, today, I wanted to check OpenCanvas’s website for updates and entered their Japanese site instead at http://www.portalgraphics.net/.

While there, I found out that in Japan, OpenCanvas 4 is already out. Not only that. There is also a totally new software from them called FrameToon which creates animation and saves it in shockwave/flash format. There are two short sample animations created using this tool on their site here by clicking on the first big pink button (for animation 1) and the first big green button (for animation 2).

I thought the sample animations were cool so I went and browsed through the amateur FrameToon user submissions. Then, I came upon this one:

The image of the female this person drew looks suspiciously like Nadine, a female warrior character on my Lovarian Adventures webcomic. Here is an image I drew before that shows Nadine (the left most character) and the rest of the cast of the comic.

Notice that both characters have blonde pulled back hair with bangs (though not exactly the same blonde colour but blonde still), blue shirt with yellow lining and metallic shoulder armour. Interesting.

I guess I don’t really mind if it is intended as a future piece of fanart but if the person is going to claim the design as his/her own, then I would probably take offence. The other possibility of course is that it is merely coincidental that the person created a female blonde character with a blue and yellow shirt with a metallic shoulder armour. I think that highly unlikely though.

I’m just surprised to encounter Nadine’s visage somewhere out in the web.
