Odd and Pierce

Having learned of the appearance of a new ghost Pokemon, Honedge (steel-ghost, man. STEEL-GHOST), I decided "I have to make a human of this". When I informed a friend, she said she'd like to see a humanized Vivillon. Since I have no life, I decided to draw them together. The Vivillon ended up almost cyberpunk and I think the Honedge is wearing either half a skirt or a beach towel.....

Odd is the quiet but cunning pink Vivillon. I got stuck on the eyes for a bit before deciding to go the route of Les, the Breloom and giving him a mask that can't possibly be seen through. The wings became the back half of his vest-thing and his antennae became accessories tied to the headband, because wearing a headband and visor/mask is totally hip now (actually, his hair collects little sparkly dust that he needs to keep out of his face; when he removes the visor or headband, there's sparkles everywhere). He's a cool guy that would rather flee than fight and he doesn't need a weapon to attack because he can just use those girly butterfly heels instead. He's charismatic enough to talk his way in and out of (almost) anything, unless he's talking to someone that knows him well, because they won't fall for his tricks. His specialty is conjuring strong winds that carry him out of danger. Failing that, he's fairly skilled in hand-to-hand combat. All in all, he's a pretty cool guy...for a pink coward. The long-sleeved version of that vest is quite impressive.

Pierce is the lonely-natured blue-haired Honedge, who despite being a ghost-type is not actually a variation of not-alive (like the others in my ghost set). After some consideration, I decided against turning the sword's cloth into fancy hair and just gave him a shaggy chin-length cut in the darkest colour on the cloth's reference art. The cloth remained on his weapon and was also adapted into one sleeve and something I threw around his waist. He's a swordsman and medium, using the power of the spirits to strengthen his attacks. The lack of colour in his eyes is a side-effect of his medium abilities. The cloth on the hilt can be manipulated like an arm (in the manner of the Honedge Pokemon) whether the sword is sheathed or not and can drain the strength of his opponents if he can wrap it around them. However, he'd rather not use that ability if it can be avoided. He has a spell tag attached to his belt, which strengthens his ability to control the spirits. He comes off as cold and distant, sometimes even mean, but he's really quite kind-hearted and weak against forceful people.

These two are the best of friends, even though they look like they would have nothing to do with one another. Sure, more often than not Pierce ends up having to save Odd from a disaster of his own making, but that's what friends are for, right?

I've always wondered how someone would make Honedge a human. Congrats, you are damn creative. :)
