Drawn as part of my Abyss Friends 16 Day Challenge Contest: [link]
The other Tales of the Abyss characters were revealed individually, but as my favorite of the 16, I thought Natalia deserved a bit of special treatment~ Luke and Asch are in their Viscount outfits while Natalia is in her Beloved Princess dress. As with my God General Tales of Friends straps last year, the style for these little guys is based off the rubber strap designs by Sakurai ( [link]
). Even though they'd be in different outfits, I wasn't sure I should make a new Luke and Asch at all since they already have rubber straps. But in the end I decided that the Viscount outfits allowed me to draw their hair and faces different enough from their normal fashion that they could look authentic but be different from Kotobukiya's rubber straps. And I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to complete this picture for Natalia. Just look how happy she is. :'D
These are meant to look like Tales of Friends rubber straps, but they are not for sale. Sorry!
