Trying to be able to draw Tomoko because she's awesome. Seriously. If you ever wanted to know what I was like a 15, basically just imagine a male Tomoko. I've never been so torn between feeling sorry for a character and laughing at them - it danced the line between tragedy and comedy brilliantly with a lot of "Ha! That's you isn't it?"-ing.
(Except I never said that at 15)
