Equius Zahhak by TheSilverTopHat Equius Zahhak by TheSilverTopHat
Equius being... creepy.

Equius is the only one of the Trolls for which I had to study before I began his drawing, to figure out his muscle build (even though most of it is covered by his shirt). I gave him the physic of a hurdle jumper, since that body build is well muscled all over but is still light and agile. Equius strikes me as the kind to be interested in developing his body for real fighting and athletics, rather than for show. I also tried to make his nose look like it had been repeatedly broken and healed.
The full body picture features him romancing his robo-Aradia (one of the most hilarious scenes from the comic in my opinion). There's a really fun reading of it here: [link]
The line-art is of him either leaping onto or dismounting from Author's back, possibly as they charge toward an army of enemies.

Once again, characters belong to Andrew Hussie, creator of the comic Homestuck.

I really like all of these body-type drawings you've made with Homestuck - they're welldrawn, dynamic, and it's very interesting to read your thoughts about it too :)

I found it so sad when Aradia was mad when she realized he programmed the SoulBot to have feelings for himself..... But...it got better. :iconawwwplz: :iconkissingplz:

Before I started actually reading HS, I had looked up images of the Trolls and talked to friends about them (Well, okay mainly about Vriska and Gamzee). But I, being shallow, decided not to like Equius based of off his design. He scared me, in essence. XD

But now I realize just how amazing he is, really. In my top five fave trolls. :D

He does kind of grow on you, despite the scariness.

I do it with my writing so I can really appreciate when people do it artwise. I'd comment on all these but there are so many I just really like all the thought you put into the different bodytypes and making each of the trolls unique outside of their hairdos and horns.

Oh wow I really like the look of this. The muscle is well balanced and I especially like the way you have done his face. It looks to be the right build without losing his young age.
I tip my hat off you you!

Equius, why must you be so creepy, yet so oddly adorable at the same time?
But yes, his scenes with RoboAradia are always amazing and hilarious.
You did a good job drawing him, as he can be quite a difficult character to draw.
