Soul Companion - Vai by Absolute-Sero Soul Companion - Vai by Absolute-Sero
So.. *ElfSama was uploading a couple of pictures about creatures called 'soul companions'.. intrigued, I checked it out, and decided to try forming mine. "Vai" is pronounced similarly to "Faye".

:bulletpurple: The guidelines Elf wrote for a soul companion..
'- The color that looks best on you becomes its fur color,
- One of your favorite colors can be found else where on its body. (Such as the orange on the tail of Sa Bir)
- It will slowly grow other things, such as legs, horns, and such as you progress in life. So it could have 5 eyes, or 7 tails.
- It doesn't have to be furry, for all we know it has feathers, scales, skin, or combinations of those.
- They grow in all forms, but they always have a mask, and always have the same color eyes as you.
- They're usually genderless, but can be male or female as it continues to grow.
- If you find your "soul mate," Soul Companions will usually begin to travel with your mate's Soul Companion. Together they will choose paths for the couple to take, but they do not know love for other Soul Companions, so they will just form strong friendships.
- If you fall out of love, the Soul Companions will simply part ways, and return to helping you on their own.'

I don't consider black a colour, so I nixed black as fur colour, despite it looking best on me. (Plus, it's flattering on pretty much anyone.) Now Vai here I just let my hand.. draw.. If soul companions are growing and changing, it made sense to me that there are changes still underway. More eyes (presently one set is blind), a splitting tail, even what might, far down the road, be wings. Who knows. Vai I envisioned seeming formidable at a glance - but notice, no teeth, no claws (except the two dewclaws) at this point.
I wish it were more clear that fur is only on the tail(s), ear tips, and jawline.. otherwise the skin is smooth. ._. -fail-

Again, the original idea is by :iconelfsama:.

...I drew this watching Anastasia. LOL. Ending rambling now. I need sleep something fierce. :C

Photoshop CS2; roughly 5 hours sketch-to-submission.

I know this is older, but this is a really cool design and I like the colors too :)

I always end up enjoying the soul companion design, though unlike you I sorta contemplate changing the colours. ^^;

The purple and red appear to me to be pushing and pulling one another, its a neat combo and a cool concept in general. I wanna do one. I keep trying to comment but my internet keeps dying when I do. :<

Hmm.. I didn't look at it like that - truthfully, another favourite colour tied with violet is green, which was initially a thought. But... reasonably, I REALLY didn't want Vai to look as though it had been painted for christmas.
The push/pull concept would probably fit incredibly well anyway with how my life's been in the past year, I guess.

I saw yours! It's awesome. *ElfSama has started a trend! xD

I love the tail split *u* This is such a kickass design~

Awww, thank you. I'm glad it looks all right, since art I stay awake too late to finish usually doesn't look good in the end. XD

Aww~ what a lovely soul companion~ ;V; I love his mask, and his set of blind eyes~ and the split tail is interesting~
Poor guy needs to eat more though. xD
Thank you for drawing it~~ ;v;

LOL. Eat more, yes, probably.. xD (Should have drawn him/her standing up so the gangly body shape was easier to see.. gah!)
It was very refreshing to draw, I feel I've been doing a lot of the same sort of thing over and over again. Thank YOU for sharing the idea and asking people to draw it 8D
