It's been a while since I've seen these 2. Memories

Mah gay babies <3
I wouldn’t mind if Nakatani Nio made Akuma no Riddle doujins

I can't help but think of Yuu when looking at Haru. I know it's probably just because it's Nakatani, but something about the eyes just makes me think that.

For some reason I had a feeling that something related to Akuma No Riddle was going to appear today

Literally any pairing in this doujin makes me happy.
I’d trade at least half my winter storage to see another few comics of these gals.

Interesting, so both artists did artwork of each other's series. Surprisingly both artstyles work for the opposite series.

^Honestly any touhou artist could transition to akuma no riddle without much of a jump. Mostly because Sakuya and Tokaku are easy to drag and drop replace with eachother.

^Even Touhou artists have very different styles.No two of them are really similar.
And I don't feel like Tokaku and Sakuya are all that similar apart from having short hair...

They have similar builds, but more so they basically do the same thing. From what Final Fantasy artists I know they told me learning Squall and Liguna (I think that's how you spell his name) makes it so drawing lighting is as simple as what stance her weapon is in. And ya they all fight in distinctive ways but an action shot is easy to just pick witch one you want. A more extreme case is fang and kain in the same bubble of final fantasy they both jump and slam down so just pick witch one holds the pointy stick and your good to go. But that's just what I've been told from the artists I know and ya a sample size of 2 isn't big I admit. Apparently it's just the stance and position of the body that makes the biggest issue weather or not the characters look the same is not a problem. With all that said if some artists wants to correct me and call me uninformed I will admit ya I'm not an artists personally so I simply take who I know for their words at face value.

^That's pretty weak. If it's just about poses anyone could replicate anything... There is more to it than that. Touhou has a specific artstyle and more than poses, it's outfits and expressions that matter.
Also, if you haven't noticed, these "Touhou artists" are all just fans with very different styles. Nakatani Nio and Minakata Sunao just happen to have styles that complement each other. Just to be clear, I was refering to https://dynasty-scans.com/images/9827

Like I said it's not based of personal experience I don't do art I'm a tech hardware and software guy. So I see the world very differently. I try to quantify things in ways I can understand and sometimes it's hard to separate my world view with the world. After all even the artists I know are tech people as well. I concede that I'm clueless because I am. Just understand I was not really defending my point of view just stating how I managed to reach the conclusion I did. Nor am I back tracking I have a nasty habit of providing way too much detail on my opinions and might have stepped into defense territory.

I assure you I fully expect you to be the right one in this case just providing a window into my mind is something I do so when people correct me they can do so better.

Looks like Yuu and Touko cut their hair
