I really would like to ink this thing out and color it, but we’ll see how much time I can manage for that. As is, I need to take a break from this to work on something else this week, but for now…YAY THIS MUCH IS DONE.
And happy 7th year anniversary to Generator Rex, one of the most influential shows in the more recent years of my life. <3
Running Providence - Noah and Rex sketch These two always make me happy with the characters in Generator Rex. Here’s Rex, who’s been taught since he can remember, (which isn’t very long) that he has to be a weapon and under control at all times. Noah, who at first was just into the friendship for an undercover job, turns it around on its head and actually becomes a true companion. The two of them change the whole betrayal situation to a strengthening experience, and they become even tighter afterwards. They bounce off each other flawlessly, challenge each other’s weak points and banter, like you do, but still stand up for each other when the other is feeling down.
Meant to be sort of a follow-up to my last Rex related photo set post, since while the kid can be scary in a fight, it’s important to remember how much contact with others matters to him.
As the series progresses, he develops in such a way that he’s big on granting second chances, believing in the importance of free will and choice, and keeping his promises when it counts the absolute most, even if that promise is to a former foe. He also starts to let go of the idea of “playing it cool” in holding back on letting others know that he cares, going from telling Six to “get off the sap train” in season one to embracing his team mate/mentor/friend/father figure in season three. Rex seems to value his memories and personal experiences over material possessions, but more than anything else - even his own life and identity - he values his family, friends and allies. Nothing matters more to Rex than other people.
