I kind of felt like drawing my old Inkbrush Bike drawing another go, but this time with my inksona, and his "updated" design. I really wish that Nintendo would have more lovely DLC for Mario Kart 8 (or Mario Kart NX, if that's a thing). The Speedy Inkbrush Bike and Inklings would be a fun welcome addition~
As of my 1,000 Follower mark, I've began to permanently draw him with black hair. Not easy to tell as Miiverse posts could be any color imagined, so I guess this is "proof of concept." His hair now works similarly to how the Squid Sisters are in-game, and outside games like Super Mario Maker with the costumes revealing their Squid Forms, not Black and Gray, but Pink and Lime.
Squid Form remains fairly unchanged, ink color can still change, but the hair stays black, just like the Squid Sisters, notably Callie, though my bangs style has been more like Marie's coincidentally. The end of the tentacles are highlighted with the current ink color, much like their presentation. Also, my actual hair is black, so this pretty much works out. (I wish Nintendo would allow us to have custom hair already, geez! Everything else like Animal Crossing and whatnot get better customization than Splatoon.)
All my other personas have just carried the gray theme, but in reality, my hair is black. If you plan to make fan-art, know that my inkling's hair no longer changes color, except for the ends of the tentacles, like the Squid Sisters. Hurray!
Background stuff: Inkopolis and Breath of the Wild Hyrule Shrine and Tower.
