This originally started off as me messing around with posing and expression for these two, but then I posed the question of what the background should be because it was too plain. My pal Haley answered:
kendraw: WHAT OH WHAT SHOULD THE BG BEEEEE
Haley: anime sparkly background
kendraw: …………………………………….I could
Haley: will you
kendraw: IF I CAN GET PROPER REFERENCE
kendraw: I will
kendraw: will you find me
kendraw: reference material
kendraw: and send me it, Haley?
Haley: I’d be honored to Ken
AND SHE INDEED sent me a crap-ton of sparkly anime screen shots. So I tried to CAPTURE THE SPARKLY-ness of it.
For no other reason than I could.
So here’s Twi and Mav being their odd selves with a really unfitting BG. HUZZAH!
I wanted to do some expression work with Mavtien- over time it started to move more into a slight realistic take on his features. Which is alright since these were done to study certain features of his! So many ways to draw angry expressions~
Drawn with a cutesy big-eyed style, because why not?
For those of you who are curious, or just plain confused: Mavtien is referencing the fact that Twi brought him back from the dead, and gave him a fleshy form based upon spiritual memory. He used to be a Poltergeist, and technically still is sometimes.
I say sometimes due to him loosing his temper, or getting overly emotional. This causes his spirit to be expelled from the vessel Twi made for him. (I explained this to a few of my friends back in December- hoho!) So often times, Mavtien has to calm himself before that occurs. If he doesn’t he needs to wait until he can relax before he can return into it.
I should say now that it doesn’t always work. And he gets angry… Quite often.
