A good vs. evil holiday smackdown for the ages!! Santa Claus vs. Krampus (the yuletide demon who drags the naughty to Hell on Christmas Eve). Here’ a version of that fight I’ve been waiting all year to draw, Rise of the Guardian’s Russian Santa: Nicholas St. North versus Michael Dougherty’s Krampus!
Okay so I was looking at this gif, and noticed North grabbing Bunny by the sash and I couldn’t help but think this isn’t the first time North has done this.
Because I imagine the first time this happened North grabbed Bunny by the scruff of the neck and Bunny just indignantly shouted “LET GO OF ME!” and then grumbles “I’m not a kit…” equally as indignantly under his breath and kinda fixes himself after North let’s him go.
And then North (who heard every word) ruthlessly teases him about it until Bunny really gives him a piece of his mind (a good whack with a boomerang) and that’s the end of that. Idk. The fandom could elaborate.
Jack is a little funny about touch. After 300 years with none he’s allowed to be. But Nicholas St. North is boisterous, loud and above all given towards overt displays of affection. So he’s the first to crush the poor smaller spirit in a fit of excitement when Jack’s combined experience with fun and modern children help him with some troublesome toy designs.
I needed to do some physical interaction practice and I had a mighty need for fanart, so here you go. Guardian hugs.
