Finally，it’s done :D
My fanbook XDDDDDDDD
HOLY CRAP TT IT LOOKS FANTASTIC
I NEED IT
Their study room.
I just want to draw something domestic. And also environment, something that will take me several days at least XD Though didn’t draw thumbnails and proper perspective line is a bitch…
Somehow this is a way I am guessing how their common work area will look like? They will choose their own side of furniture because it’s important to customize your working area at home to your own preference! ;D And then cat!Charles and dog!Erik’s toys will just randomly spread across the room
Now I can move on to next project
I will now commence with printing out the two copies. You know, the one to put on my wall and the other roll all over. This is amazing. Perspective, color, mood, detailsdetaildetails, all the books and toys.
I know you got really annoyed and tired of this illustration, but the results are staggering.
When flirting techniques clash.
I love how confused Charles looks while Erik’s just like, “Yeah I said that.”
Erik is waiting for an answer. It was a question after all.
After a confused pause during which Charles thought of the lab rats sacrificed to his thesis-
“I’ve been a lab rat,” Erik added.
“Sorry, Charles. It’s not that I don’t trust you.”
and Charles fucking hangs on, knowing that Erik will do just as he likes. While there are no pain receptors in the brain, there will be pain before the coin gets that far, and I am very glad that I can only distantly imagine the terror of a mind that knows it is about to die. Charles is in that mind, and he stays the course.
This moment activates my Charles feelings every time.
There are no pain receptors in the brain, but I do wonder what it feels like to share the thoughts of someone whose ability to think is disintegrating moment by moment. And while the brain itself has no nerve endings, all pain is processed by the brain. It’s hard to imagine what a soup of synesthesia and memories and sensations Shaw, and therefore Charles, was experiencing as the coin plowed through Shaw’s brain, breaking apart millions of synaptic connections, a hundred thousand thoughts unjoined, electrical impulses firing into nothing but space, rapidly filling with blood.
Plus of course the pain of the initial entry, the fear and horror of approaching death, and the breakdown of personality before function. The frontal lobe can be severely damaged or even removed (as in a frontal lobotomy) without killing you, so Charles would essentially be suffering through the death of a person before that brain actually died. It’s pretty gruesome really.
And I always wonder what Shaw was thinking? Was he screaming defiance? Shitting himself? Sobbing and crying? Begging for mercy? What if he had a total deathbed-conversion and felt remorse for all he’d done? *okay, unlikely, but imagine*
What moves me most about this scene [and Fassy’s performance] is how terrifyingly dispassionate Erik seems. He doesn’t appear to be getting any joy or satisfaction out of the act, or even that keen to do it — it’s as if he’s just Made A Decision, issued himself an order, and is bound to carry it out. He sticks to that decision as rigidly as Charles sticks to his principal of non-violence. The problem with Charles trying to persuade Erik not do evil is that he’s not doing it because he thinks it’s good - he knows it’s evil, he just also happens to think that it’s necessary.
Re: Shaw’s final thoughts, it’s my headcanon that he was actually proud of Erik, in a twisted way. I mean, he would certainly have preferred not to be killed, but at the same time I think he felt… well, I believe Emperor Palpatine actually said it best.
“Strike me down with all of your hatred, and your journey toward the Dark Side will be complete.”
He knew, even as Erik killed him, that he had won. That Erik was his creation.
Oooo… yes. I can see that - twisted, enraged, spitting defiance, but also gloating viciously over Erik’s ultimate downfall. Nice. [Omg, what if he was speaking to Charles?? Like, taunting him? What if his very last act, even though he was totally paralysed, was still an act of cruelty? >_<]
Or… *just thought of another option* …what if that ridiculously-compassionate Charles shut off all his senses and all his thoughts - made him unconscious - so that what Erik pushed the coin through was essentially an unwakeable-sleepwalker with Charles looking out through its eyes?? o_O
*okay now I’m starting to freak myself out*
Wouldn’t that be a heck of a thing for Erik to find out. All the while he was staring at Shaw with all that hate and making it hurt as much as possible and mentally screamingLook at this, Herr Doktor, look at me killing you —and Shaw wasn’t there at all anymore. Just Charles.
What an interesting thing for Charles to do — enable Erik’s victory and take it away at the same time.
oh i love Charles’ tummy
Charles is so hard to draw for some reason?? ;A;
Also god damn. I wish the dog would stop sleeping under my computer chair! I feel like I’m going to sick up from that natural dog smell. Or it could be just the fact I haven’t eaten anything all day.
