Way too many requests have been submitted on this side of the site lately and only one concept was made a while back, so I felt the need to spruce up the current submission variety with an idea I've had for a while. No high expectations or unreasonable bounties here: just a simple vision being communicated.
Kingdom Hearts 3 was released a few months back and it made me wonder what it'd be like if Kairi became a character mod for Mario Kart 8. I chose Daisy as the character to be replaced since stats felt suitable and both her hair length and body proportions were similar enough to Kairi's model from the first Kingdom Hearts.
I apologize in advance if my illustration is on the shoddy side of things: it's been ages since I last attempted to draw digitally.
If anyone is interested in giving this idea a shot, you're free to do so. I haven't had much successful experience with model importing, but I can help with UI for those who want to make her. Even though Sora's old WIP was sadly never finished, I feel Kairi could have at least a small shot at being fully made.
