    Shimeji - Desktop Buddies

    I'm putting this here in fan art because they aren't quite graphics and I did have to draw them, so I figure it fits.

    If you don't know what a shimeji is, it's a little animated buddy that runs around your desktop! They climb walls, ceilings, chill on the floor, follow your mouse, multiply and even sometimes take away your browser windows. They're a lot of fun to watch running around your desktop, and they're really customizable. Searching on DeviantArt for shimeji will bring up a ton, and there's some for pretty much every popular anime.

    However, I found that there weren't a lot of really great Kuroshitsuji shimeji around, so I decided to draw them myself, and now that I've finished a few, I figured I'd share them here.

    So far I've done Grell and William, because I'm not biased or anything. >___> Here you can see them in action:

      Spoiler!


    To get them, just go to the DA pages here and follow the instructions. Aw hell, I'll put them here too anyway. Haha

    Grell is ---> Here~!!
    William is ---> Here~!!

    Once you've downloaded the file (Look for the link that says 'download file' over on the right), unzip it and find the biggest file inside called 'Shimeji-ee'. It'll be an Executable Jar File. For Grell, it's 153kb. Don't click on the application, because it has a tendency to not work.

    Once you click on the Jar file, a window will pop up asking which image set you want to use. There's only one in each, so just click 'use selected' and your buddy will drop from the top of your window!

    Once he's come out to play, you can right click on him for a bunch of options. You can add another, make it follow your mouse, or make them all go away. If they steal your browser window, just right-click and then choose 'Restore IE!' and it'll come back. When you're all done, just select 'Bye Everyone!' and they'll all go away.

    I'm already starting on a set for Alois and Claude, and I'll moooost likely do Ciel and Sebastian after that, so I'll throw the links in here once I've got them done.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask! And I hope you all enjoy them!

    I couldn't find a William anywhere either, and that was what prompted me to make him in the first place. And then he got lonely.

    I'm glad you like them!!

    These are so cute. Thanks for coming and sharing these here. I think they do constitute as fan art perfectly because you did draw them of course. Don't think that I will be installing because I have too many things going on at once to worry about a little buddy running around and they might distract me more than I need to be from work.

    But really, excellent job on these I look forward to seeing your next set.
