Jezirosa and Tellisn

Two Worlds, One Love

^ That should be the actual title, but it's not, due to deviation name length restrictions.

Anyway, it only took me a million years (okay, three weeks) but I finally finished my contest entry for #Unicorn-Club's and #WaterHorses' joint contest entitled Two Worlds, One Love!

These are my Neopets from my side account. Jezirosa is a female Tyrannian peophin and Tellisn is a male robot uni. They're opposites, just like their account mates:

I don't really have a story for them. The basic premise is that they're soulmates, but they're separated by design. Jezirosa is a primitive peophin who is restrained to the water due to evolutionary features like her gills and tail. Tellisn used to be a regular uni, but became a robot, so he can no longer splash around in the water with Jezirosa, otherwise he'll rust, or worse, electrocute himself.

Jezirosa's design was inspired by my friend's old design for her peophin, Ripramai. She's kind of a mix between Island and Tyrannian in color, I guess. The gills are based on axolotl gills.

Tellisn was based on the uncased version of a robot uni. I used Robot Unicorn for design help (though I've never played it). I suck at drawing robots. He's a cyborg, which is why his head and hair are organic. Okay, the real reason is I didn't know how to draw a robot horse face and hair. But... :shh:

Very cool, I love how the hippocampus is jumping out of the water like that, and there is this really great sense of motion. WOnderful work!

Thanks! I was worried the movement would feel stilted, so I'm glad you like it :)

So sweet! :'-] A beautifully composed picture. I especially like the clouds (I dunno, there's just so much... movement in them 8D ) and little touches like how Tellisn's hoof is trailing in the water.
