Ah, I love these two. Even with their unusual hands. But I couldn't resist trying to capture one of the funnier moments of the series, particularly the change of phrase in the English dub. It's just too random to not laugh at.
And yeah, since Kneesocks' other hand was obscured in the reference image, I decided to mirror Scanty's other hand to match in a way. Almost like a bizarre minor symmetry. Certainly something approved when trying to add a perfect artistic touch to the image. On what's otherwise an odd position striving for humor.
The font is Gloucester MT Extra Condensed. And I'll try to make a more dignified image of the two in the future. This was just too much to pass up.

Wow, I had no idea this picture would be so popular.
