I tried getting this done last week but it didn't happen. It's so incredibly late it's not even funny, but I'm determined to get it done this week. It's his Nova/Samus commission pic colored about 60-75% done. I'm going for a different style in shading, and not relying on the "blur" tool so much, also instead of just being in front of a grey door I thought an outer space backdrop would be much cooler and more interesting.
and btw, Roiya is all done, but I won't post her until after gets it so it's a surprise.
"I want you to return with all that materia, I can't afford you to lose any now." Rufus said looking up at two of his employed turks. "Sir, we can't leave you on your own." Rude, the taller well built of the two men in suits. The red head looked down at Rufus in his wheelchair. "Yeah Roofy, can't leave ya here." he tapped his EMR on his own shoulder. "Very well, then bring me along. I was avoiding slowing you down." "Don't you worry about our speed, Sir." Rude nodded at him. Rufus didn't really know how to reply, he didn't want to deny the trust he had for two of his best turks. Reno went behind his chair and pushes him along to their helipad. The blond pushes himself to stand out of his chair. "H-hey Ruf, you can sit back in you chair we can get it in no problem." Reno looked up at him as he shook his head. "I'll be fine Reno, I need to stretch my legs a bit, I'm not really in that much pain today."He smiled, Rude helped him into the helicopter and Reno moved the chair out of the way getting in with them. "Mission brief, Reno. We are to land on the west side of Shinra inc. Tseung said it was the safest at this time, the east and north side have both completely fallen and the south side, well... he said there would be no promises." "Ai ai, so west pad it is." He said starting to engines. "Then we are to enter the building and go down one floor via the satires, the lifts are completely out of action of course." "Well the stairs are too but that never stopped us before, hah!" The red head smirked and started to fly towards the dilapidated building that was once Shinra Incorporated.
Once they touched down Reno jumped out of the helicopter and helped his boss down too. Rufus let out a long sigh. "Too many memories here." "We'll be done in no time Ruf." Reno grinned and Rufus could help but respond with a smile. "Alright you two get a move on. Okay?" The men nodded and went into the building, Rufus not far behind. "I won't be able to make it to the floor down, I'll wait for you up here." He said, hesitantly Reno obliged and followed Rude through the large gap in the floor where there once were stairs. Rufus sat at an old desk. ".....look at all that un-filed paperwork." He laughed to himself.
Reno, meanwhile, was rummaging through several white heavy duty chests for signs of any small glowing spheres. Then, opening one last chest to be greeted by the bright shimmer of all the mako energy. "Jaaaacckkkpott~" He grinned "Hey RUDE! I found it!" He said picking up one of the lighter coloured spheres, chucking and catching it in one hand. "Told Ruf we wouldn't be long." Rude made his way back down the hall to Reno's voice. "Hmm.. wonder what this one does." He said pressing the matera against his forearm, is sinking in making his skin ripple like water. "Oh woah..." His eyes widened slightly. "...wait a minute... this is agi-!!" A surge of mako energy rushed up his arm, his body jerking to the floor and adjusting all his atoms, molecules. After the glowing stopped, Rude stood at the door having seen the whole thing. "R-reno?" He spoke... "....Wudee, I hurt my bummm!" Now taking the form of a 5 year old Reno, the big blue eyes red head looked up at his colleague with his eyes dwelling up in tears. Rufus looked up and called to his employees. "Rude, Reno, is everything alright down there??" Rude picked up the toddler, holding his now too big clothing onto him. "J-just fine sir, except for one thing.... Reno's been playing with the aging materia again..." "Not again....Rude what's happened......?" Rufus went to teh hole in the floor as Rude went to the hole i the ceiling to look up at his boss. "Ohh Reno...." Rufus rolled his eyes. "What have I told you about experimenting with materia you don;t know what is??" He said, but Reno only let out a sob drenching his pink cheeks in tears. Rufus sighed "Bring him up here Rude, then you get the materia." Rude nodded and climbed up slowly with the toddler passing him to Rufus who took him gently holding him close. He looked down at the little red headed boy and chuckled. "This is the second time you've done this you silly boy." He smiled, Reno stopped his sniffling and clung to Rufus's shirt. Rude returned with the materia. "How long will this last, Rude?" "A couple of hours, the materia will stop working then and he'll turn back to normal." Rufus nodded and walked back to the helicopter with him, the little red head trying to lick his own nose. Rufus chuckled. "Maybe if you stayed this age you'd stay out of trouble." Rude assisted him climbing back in. "Woofus...." the toddler said "Can I has a chocolate bar?" he smiled "Ahaha I suppose, but you have to wait till we get home." He said brushing Reno's fringe out of his face.
