After Namine drew her fox, she told me, “Now I have to draw a machine on the fox’s back!” All righty then. Machine? What? (Namine doesn’t know this, but I love me some steampunk. Steam Boy is, in fact, my favorite anime, above even Gankutsuou and Read or Die.) Over dinner, she informed us that the machines on the foxes’ backs helped them walk. They kept falling, she said, so the machines stayed on their backs to help them up.
Before dinner, Namine asked me how to draw a fox. I don’t really draw realistic things, like, at all, so I quick sketched out what seems to be a cat with a fox’s tail. No matter; it was good enough for Namine, and she sketched out a fox of her own. I thought it was pretty good.
