This image and gif is very well made, the color is of the skin, clothes and the some what darken filter over this all make it look rather beautiful. The shift of eye color of Neo is good and the reaction from Ruby is all well done. If there is something that I found odd is Ruby´s eye color, I know that she had silver eyes and I don´t know how hard it its to make silver color. For me it looks like she has a light shad of brown or grey, however that is a minor thing that dose´ruin the image/gif. Its very well made and you have done a great job with the background and the details on the clothes and the characters face.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
62 out of 62 deviants thought this was fair.

This legitimately gave me the shivers when I noticed what exactly what was happening and with whom.

The artist certainly played up the shock factor with this one for those that are familiar with the series and who these characters are. What seems perhaps the culmination of a lot of people's shipping turns into something far darker via a few flashes of an eyelid.

The static version of this piece really lends itself to this work with how effective the transition from the intimate intent of the initial part of the character's expression to the suddenly vicious glee and the equally shocked to terrified look of the poor girl on the bottom as she realizes what is actually going on.

In terms of the colors used it is a very muted pallet but I think that really lends to the piece overall and helps the eye focus on the parts that are most important, namely the character's faces as their animations play through their course. The detail work on those faces is also spoke on and very clearly and directly conveys exactly what the character's are experiencing without needing any sound or text to distract from the overall artwork.

Mistakes were made given the fact that Neo doesn't talk

Ruby's eyes tell the whole damn story, and the fact that her mouth doesn't move/is not animated I think is a positive feature in this (compared to Weiss's mouth change).  Her mouth matches both emotions her eyes show.  The timing of the blink is also spot-on for the shrinking iris/pupil.  Ruby's arched back, the shoulder straps of both hanging loosely make it very passionate (along with the fact that Weiss is damn-well straddling the girl). It makes it seem as though Ruby had taken in a breath and holding it while the two just exchange passionate (how many times can I say this in a comment?) gazes.  The reaction her expression gives to Weiss's change though is just... a heavenly animation.  The way you make those eye lashes so pronounced and brushed at first, but then hardening them and that lower black line vanishing to have white-on-skin coloring I think really makes the white pop-out MORE, which makes her shrinking eye even MORE expressed.  Of course, those damn eye brows are so fluent in each blink.  Very well done.

Now, on to Weiss's animation; love it.  I just love the full animation of that grin.  I literally want to take it frame by frame; from matching Ruby's expression to just, such a quick, frame-by-frame grin, matching those changing eyes. While her eyes don't change as drastically as Ruby's, it's obvious that they wouldn't; her expression, while changing drastically, is just that much more powerful, I think at least.  I think that's the thing with those 'soft expression turning twisted/sadistic expression' is that the eyes themselves, sometimes, don't change, but the mouth does; from soft, to that overly-widened grin that Weiss makes.

The pacing of the blinks are amazing for two reasons; one, Weiss's blinking is on point because she would be the calmer of the two; steady breathing, steady blinks.  Ruby, obviously expression a more timid/shy/surprised/beta-like expression and position, would breathe and blink more rapidly, so her double-blink then single-blink, followed by that eye animation really brings it all together.

Overall; absolutely amazing. I don't like to use the term "simple" when it comes to artwork, since I know when the term is used, the art itself is far more than just "simple," but the color palette you chose, the style of art and brush and line work just give off that obviously unanimated, still-life sorta, in-the-moment feel and the style of those eyes make it so the animation doesn't seem... what's the word, unnatural I guess, since I think maybe to me it feels almost like a water-color style kind of painting in a sense... maybe that's why I'm so drawn to it and styles like this; it seems simple because of that sort of softly-layered colors with no hard-striking lines or outlining that tends to come with "solid" animation.

(I've just been told in the comments below that this is indeed Neo acting as Weiss; that's awesome)

i guess whenever neo speaks, she speaks in the voice of other characters, a potential opportunity for the VA's of rwby to try "evil" voices

why'd Weiss's eyes go pink

there were two previous pieces of art before this. One was Weiss and Ruby in the same position, the other was Weiss looking in the mirror with eyes showing that it was actually a disguised Neo while actual Weiss was chained up in background. So basically this Gif taking the original pairing art and mixing in disguised Neo revealing herself to Ruby(probably to kill or bang her, take your pick)

Right now, I'm trying not to think that Neo may try to rape Ruby.

Poor Ruby, the look on her face says it all, she knows she's about to spend an indefinite amount of time in hell
DannyBVT Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2018
Great work as always.

But one thing that's on my mind is how Neo did the scar over the eye? Semblance? Make up? Or did she actually go through with using a blade to make it?
Naz909 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2018
Neo can create illusions
She can change her entire look if she wants to
pokemontrainerjay Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist put a positive spin on it...what if she developed a crush on Ruby for defeating her and it's just been building until she had an opportunity to reveal herself and her unrequitted love for Ruby. ..who am I kidding, that's a murder face.
ArcWraith2000 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2018
She could be a yandere?

Btw what you just said fits the fanfic Black Reaper. Basically, Ruby goes nuts and joins Torchwicks gang, dates Neo. Very well written with good plot I recommend.
