Upside-Down - Lineart by Tigryph Upside-Down - Lineart by Tigryph
This picture's largely inspired by the song "Upside-Down" by Jack Johnson:

Who's to say
What's impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There's no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
I don't want this feeling to go away

Who's to say
I can't do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren't always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
This world keeps spinning and there's no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and

Upside down
Who's to say what's impossible and can't be found

My character, Veriot, being himself with his best friend (And probibly only friend aside from his 'mother'), Aveston who is played by I've not been drawing enough scenes this year, seems color and character studies have been the trend so I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. It took about two days to draw and clean up. *_* The school store got my erasors back in :sniffle: Anyway, might color it, might not. I'd like to keep it as pencil lineart though to keep with my traditional style. XD

_______________________________________
Two boys... where they'd come from was anyone's guess. They had no memory of where they'd been prior to the day they were found. They had no family, no friends, no tie into the world, and no verbal skills originally. Veriot knew only his name when he was found among the still smoldering debris of the capital city of the Mystic Kingdom. His wounds were so severe it was a miracle that he was even alive by the time they found him. He awoke to find his wounds dressed, surrounded by terrifying balls of brown fluff he later learned to be teddy bears. Though he seemed to have no knowledge of civilization, he learned to speak, walk, and dress himself somewhat over the course of the day. He was adopted by an official of the realm known as Riin, a woman who had taken no husband and had no children of her own. Why she adopted the boy even she cannot say. One that Riin found disturbing was that Veriot had vivid flashes of what she assumed to be his memories of the Mystic royal family- Autumn Parker pushing him from a banister along with another girl, being bound in a closet covered in bruises, other children laughing, riding horses, the desert, and other strange hodgepodge memories...

Aveston was found by another woman, a priestess and step-daughter to Damian of Barovia. The boy was unable to control the strange powers that he possessed and he was confined to a small shack outside of the shrine until an odd pair of gloves was found in the belongings of the late king, Renezuo, that were able to control the boy's unnatural abilities. He, however, wasn't so lucky as Veriot. He remains an orphan and isolated from other people.

The two met their first day of public schooling. Both didn't seem to fit in so well. Over time Aveston's grown used to Veriot's silly hearted horse play. Attempts to startle him by swinging upside-down from tree branches on their way to school (mainly to demonstrate why he has a tail and everyone else doesn’t), laughing loudly at such silly stories as face planting in a bowl of soup his first time seeing the stuff, and the endless stories that amount only to more nonsense.

Both, strangely enough, share near-identical scars and an overwhelming fear of a pair of defiant mismatched eyes...

I don't like the guy on the right. He's seems so cranky! But all the picture, including him, is very well-drawn and executed. Congratulations. :handshake:

XD lol Aveston's not really cranky, he's just very serious. A good contrast to Veriot's off the wall hyperactivity.
