Draw Your Favs Getting Cooked In Soup

Draw Your Faves Getting Cooked in Soup is an art trend on Twitter started by littl3_din0saur in March 2023. The trend involves artists adding their characters to the pot of soup, or redrawing the scene entirely with their characters and art style.

The art trend originated on March 29th, 2023, when Twitter user littl3_din0saur posted the following tweet (shown below) in response to the Dying In A Glue Trap meme. In the tweet, they ask "why drawing glue traps when you can draw your faves getting cooked in soup like this" and included a clip from the manga Delicious in Dungeon that shows the catgirl character Izutsumi relaxing in a pot of hot soup. The tweet received over 13,500 likes and over 3,100 retweets in over two days.
