Here have a finished painting of my ballerina lady being worked on by doctors!

SO SO SO....

Let's talk about some plots with my ballerina lady. Or really the characters... no wait, plotz. Elle's home was destroyed. She wants to find out why, and find a new home as well. While on this mission she encounters Ian. Ian is a very modified person like her, also surviving in an alien world. These two basically become companions before (of course) it turns out Ian is THE BAD GUY. Or so it would seem. If I imagine this as a video game in the perfect way or some jazz, you can play either character cause that's always fun to me. :]

Anyway.... I originally made these characters to be enemies with that special bond you see sometimes. What I love most about enemies is that they cement each other's ideals. What I love more is when enemies recognize this on some level. This isn't the sort of twist where Elle's friend is DUN DUN DUN her enemy! This where they are friends regardless of what they do. They fight for what they believe in, what they think is good for each other, and each other. This idea is absurdly romantic but fun... I want it to illustrate the sort of vagueness people have in their relationships. How solid or malformed can your relationship (or what you see of it) actually be?

And now it's time for burgers! I will see you later!
