Genderbent Mozenrath! Muah, ha, ha!
Aladdin's attack knocked off his turban, and the hair spilled out from it.
Aladdin's eyes widened. "...You're a woman."
He backed up against the wall. "Don't hurt me."
Aladdin approached, kneeling down. "It's okay. We won't hurt you," he said. "Where's Mozenrath?"
"...I am Mozenrath."
I drew it without any references. And did the bg completely free-hand. So... it's probably off. :/ But I thought I'd see what happens. I also sketched it directly in Photoshop, so it's all digital. I thought about drawing a pillar or two, but I was lazy (and wasn't sure if it would steal interest). I might should've drawn the top part of the gauntlet on the far arm. I'd added that arm later on because I thought it would look too much like it was missing otherwise, and hadn't thought enough of the forearm would be visible to draw the top of the gauntlet. ...I wonder if it should go in my main gallery or scraps...
Took about six hours. ...might be a little long for a sketch. It was mostly used adjusting the colors and adding effects and shading, though. I thought the picture might look good with some green/red stuff going on instead of just plain brown and blue. I probably missed what I was going for, though. I need to figure out colors better.
So, anyhow, it's based on a fic idea of mine, where Mozenrath inadvertently tics off Mirage, and she decides to teach him a lesson. VeTeRiLu got me thinking about the idea again. This pic's closer to what happens in the fic than my other pic: asjjohnson.deviantart.com/art/…
Edit: I tried fixing the wall design by looking off of references, adjusted his hair some, and added shadows because of ffleret bringing it to attention. But I didn't really feel like changing the designs on his outfit, so they're still backward.
that fic idea's a bit on the vague side, but hopefully the storyline will come together more in time.
I don't know how good I am at portraying different genders
Hopefully I'll get it sorted out soon where I can write it. ^_^ Though, I'm pretty slow, so it'll probably take awhile. ^_^"
The light's actually supposed to be greenish, but there's no real reason for it to be. I guess I just figured it would look eerie.
hmm, Aladdin will haul him off to the palace to interrogate him about his and Mirage's plans. Unless you meant getting out of the situation instead of the citadel. :P Mirage was the one to do it, so she'd be the one to ask - not that she's in the mood to answer. His main problem will probably be getting through Mirage's trials in one piece.
Hopefully I'll figure out the details of the fic soon. ^_^ Though, I might end up switching to working on a different one before getting anything written... I have one ficlet that's so planned out that almost the only thing left to do is write it. I should probably practice writing. I have all this emotional stuff I want to convey, and subtle actions, and whenever I try writing something, I can only think of some dialogue. The lines I put in the description was like that. Couldn't quite figure out how to mention Mozenrath's panic/worry about his turban falling off, Aladdin's confusion about finding a girl dressed like Mozenrath instead of Mozenrath, Mozenrath saying not to hurt him as kind of a semi unconscious thing because of how he feels, Aladdin's voice being gentle and then a change of tone when asking where Mozenrath is, and the way Mozenrath feels when/before saying that he is Mozenrath. ...I think it would add to it if I could say those things. ...of course, I also need to figure out whether I should write it from Mozenrath's point of view, a camera point of view, multiple points of view... I think I'll need to work out what particular scenes there'll be before I know for sure on this fic idea.
