"This timeless journey, far from home
I gave it all up
To make a change
Sure and strong, I will fight for what is right
To make a better place forever more"

~"Time is Changing" from Dark Cloud 2

Wow wowwie WOW! BIG fancy commission for :smithysharkicon: Jordan the Shark and his beloved Oz the Cat-Tiger. :3 I really pushed myself to give life to the fullest to your idea of portraying them as both fierce fighters and THE MOST ADORABLE sweethearts. I hope you both enjoy! ^____^

Maybe its just me and the fact thats its like 2 40 in the morning but in the top panel it dosent look like theyre really fighting seriously they sorta look like theyre having fun and if theyre fighting with a sword and trident then wouldent they be killing the enemy and theres nothing fun about that unless ur sorta sadistic another thing the guy dosent look like hes gripping his trident so it looks like its gonna fall and i dont think theyre effective at close range unlike a sword. It also looks like theres a tower reflected on the water just in between them when it dosent appear that the tower that i think is casting the shadow is in the right place unlike the other building. Lastly is one of the guys hands metal ? also the lil med vials on her leg wouldent they be better on the arm or something where she dosent have to look down to grab ?

Haha, thank you for the critique! I intentionally made them look like they're enjoying fighting--They're doing the action moves that movie and game heroes do with their weapons to look cool! You're right about quite a bit of that detail--Good eye! The shark does have a robotic arm, and I do have some incorrect shading.

The entire image was made more to capture their spirit than for accuracy, and quite a few things(Like the vials) are more for aesthetics than for convenience. That being said, I do hope those things don't ruin the entire image for you!

they dont its nice i just thought i'ld point them out also why a trident their rather tricky to use as opposed to a sword since u have to have a bit of distance between you and your opponent maybe if he had a net or something like a fishermen gladiator ? at least i think thats how they fought

Oh! The shark character isn't mine; you'd have to ask his creator :iconepicunion: about why he picked a trident. Again it might just be for looks though; if you've browsed my gallery you'll notice I have a bat character with a sword which might also be inconvenient due to the wings! :B

yh with flying creatures a sword wouldent be that bad the height advantage would work in their favour a downside would have to be the length of the sword to reach a opponent on the ground and the weight to light and it might break to heavy and you'll be grounded wielding a heavy sword the more obvious choice would be a bow fly up and let loose and then collect the arrows from the ground once your done

And thank you for the watch! I'd be more than happy to hear your opinions on future images with weapons, especially if I decide to actually do some practical poses, haha~
