Been a while since I posted here.
Have an entire Splatoon fan comic by めぶいた @mebuita about a boy hero inkling and undercover reconnaissance octoling girl.

みんなに内緒でヒーローやってる系の学生イカくんください!!!!!!!!


の出会いはきっとこんな感じ。この後偵察とか言って変装してハイカラシティに潜入しちゃうんだな

イカタコ漫画 続きっぽいやつ。恋する戦士ワカメちゃん

イカタコ漫画。再会。 ヒーローくんは普段メガネなのでお互い気づいてなくて両片思いになっちゃえばいいと思うよ!


イカタコ漫画続き、これでラスト。ラストというのは最初に描いた「ヒーローの正体を知っていたクラスメイトの女の子が実はタコゾネスだった」という前提にするための過去編漫画の完結ということであって、これからもこの子たちは描いていきたいです!

Separate Japanese text are the artist comments. Sadly. I can't translate the comic or comments.

Manga artists draw quite a bit of Splatoon

Hiro Kanzaki ( Illustrator for Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai / My Little Sister Can't be this Cute ) drew Splatoon's Squid Sisters

No official octoling idol... yet
The squid vs Octopus splafest was hosted by two company mascots. One Octopus girl and one Squid girl
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway. Saw some people surprised about the sudden influx of Octoling fan art on twitter today.
Seems Japanese splatoon fans and artists on twitter hold a weekly 60Min art challenge for Splatoon

https://twitter.com/Splatoon60

Today's challenge was Octoling artwork. / タコゾネス artwork

This game has some of the best artstyle I've seen so far. It's predestined to get fan art.
Indeed. It does have a great artstyle. Splatoon got much fan art even just after it was announced.

The more octolings, the better
Okay then. Part 2 of the fanart that was made for the Octoling / タコゾネス artwork challenge on twitter

Seductive octoling girls
Gotta love how this is quite a different spin on their design. Would these be western octolings?

Cute and sad octopuses

We almost didn't even have a male inkling.
As for the male octoling. The name octoling gives the impression of a species.
Yet. In japanese. The octoling girls are apparently called Takozonesu (From octopus and amazons) and seem more like a female fighting unit.
So. It makes sense you only fight girl octopus.
Still. Like Vena said. Male humanoid octopuses exist. They will probably just have a different japanese name.

Anyway. This is a fan art thread and so.. some more fanart based on the Japanese Love VS Money Splatfest starring Callie and Marie

Guy somehow reminds me of Gary Oak...
https://twitter.com/kanzaka123/status/658187284974452737

The next two.. @n_kamui doing quite an impressive Callie and Marie

Found this relating to today's [NA] Splatfest.


Source: http://3drod.tumblr.com/

EDIT: This person also made these from previous Splatfests.
I sometimes wish japan and the western world can share a splatfest, I would love to see the english dialogue for calie and marie on love and money
If I could picture the NA version, I think it would go like this:
MARIE: So Callie, which do you prefer? Love or Money?
CALLIE: L-O-V-E, baby! You know money can't buy you happiness!
MARIE: Maybe, but L-O-V-E doesn't pay the B-I-L-L-S. Money all the way!

Cool 11/12 Nintendo Direct fan art by stupjam.tumblr.com

This is fantastic. I see references to Twilight Princess HD and the Wolf Link amiibo (obviously), Linkle in Hyrule Warriors Legends, Star Fox Zero (the scouter on Wolf Link), Mario Tennis Ultra Smash (the ball), Mario Maker and Splatoon updates, and Cloud in Smash. Also, a nice nod to how Iwata was there in spirit. :)

Didn't notice some of those, nice catch! :eek:
That said, you missed the pokeball at her hip :3
