Ashe. Could not have picked a better artist for him. Azu-taro fits his modest, subdued aesthetic perfectly
Mercie. Beats out Ashe as my favorite art this batch. The refined skirt, that precious smile, especially in her special art. She deserved this
Caspar. Can we stop with the random fabric covering the bottoms on these summer arts (see also: Leonie)? It works on Mercie and Marianne because it’s a full skirt. At least he looks like he’s enjoying himself. Also, wtf are those steampunk penguin goggles he has on him?
Duo Hilda. Marianne would probably be my favorite art if Hilda didn’t keep covering her up. The outfit and parasol are a lovely combo and they nailed her facial expressions, from the reluctance in her default art, to the slight smile in her attack arts showing her enjoying herself to the utter look of defeat in her damaged art. If it weren’t for the Marianne carry, this would have easily been my least favorite due to the same trashy fanservice I’ve come to expect with these Duos/Harmonics
Leonie. In the Paralogue she seemed really into the summer spirit so this checks out. So, as with Caspar, I’m not sure why the need for the coat tied around her. Wouldn’t that thing get soaked?
