'Something proper'... by Aetherya 'Something proper'... by Aetherya
Remake of an old idea that I never posted anywhere~ B:

...It's good to know that I can't proportion people from the angle I drew Kellyn in. xD

I tried to do a mostly monochrome coloring with a focal point. Wasn't that successful here, but it was worth it.

I'm not sure if I will get sued for putting the lyrics (Ending to Movie 10) in the picture. xD If it becomes a problem, well, I'll have to upload the version without them... Oh look, no credits in the comments to avoid search engines/shot

This reminds me of a fic based on my works that a close friend (MegaAuthor) plans to release soon - basically, Kellyn is supposed to have perished in a Team Rocket attack and the Darkrai (though in his interpretation, he's male and is very aggressive), scarred and devastated at the loss of his partner, sides with his younger brother on a path to vengeance.

That's just dark, even to me - one of the finest Rangers to have ever lived, protected by the Reaper (not the Latios lol) yet killed. But in this interpretation, Team Rocket also wins and successfully destroys Alto Mare, leaving the Latias there as the sole survivor.

Needless to say, the piece of art fits what I just mentioned, even though it seems like an overglorified advertisement. Sweating a little...

...Well, at least they were a formidable opponent enough. P:

This Darkrai may not be aggressive by nature, but she has a fixation on Kellyn (a Darkrai's fixation, which I interpret as one of the species' characters) and harm him and you will provoke her retaliation. If you were to kill him, her reaction might not be so different from what your friend imagine P: So it actually may really be not that far off xD

Yeah, but it was the part where Leon gets 3 legendaries - Raikou, Latias, and Darkrai - that got me there (all three joined him, and from the previews, I don't think he had to endure a grueling fight with them). If his younger brother can do that well, it amazes (and saddens) me how Kellyn met his end.

It's not venturing into OP territory but if Kellyn was an OC, he would be VERY overpowered in our interpretations. He's like what, early 20ish at most yet we always consider him to be the exemplary Ranger that can complete missions alone if he wanted to. =P

Now I just think I talk a little too much about my OC, even though he's been received well by those (including you haha) that focus more than just the major characters featured.

Oh yes, he would be. =P But also imagine what it would've taken to put him out... (Up to Author if he'd think about that as far as his fic goes, but meanwhile we can speculate)

(At this point of character interpretation, Kellyn's comfortably all BUT an OC, arguably. xP)

Oh, no, methinks you kind of saw me wrong there; I'm one of those who care mostly about canon characters. xD And yes, your OC's fine by me, so congrats xDD (...if I were to assume "major" implied "canon", that is.)

Must've been one hell of an ambush. Even more so when Darkrai was at his side too, and it took place while he was on duty.

Well, you can't exactly blame anyone when there's been only one game, two episodes, and a short manga that detailed what kind of character he was. Honestly, I can't recall why I decided to make him such a prominent character...perhaps it was because my beta decided to make him the star of the show when he featured the Rangers. I rolled along with it and...I guess that's why I'm here today. =P

Heheh, thanks but you, along with a few other close followers, were cool with some of the OCs, so I thought that was the case (many were experimental at best). Just like any other sane person, I prefer canon characters but will accept OCs as long as they're written properly and realistically. Unfortunately, that's usually never the case...

Woot.

For me, strike out the short manga and some parts of the anime (like the fact that he ever encountered Ash Ketchum), and alter the games beyond recognition. xD

Well, yes. As long as they are written well. Personal preferences sometimes get in my way, but not so more often than not (ex: I may not be too keen on the idea of Kellyn having a biological brother, and I may be pretty wary about author-based characters, even just in name, but I don't shut out characters solely based on the presence/absence of a characteristic ...most of the time. xD)

That, and liking a character ≠ thinking they are a good character (Kellyn is a horrible canon character albeit one with lots of possibility for reasons already discussed). Although like I said, Leon's good with me.

(I actually judge most characters rather objectively. Kellyn and all connected characters cloud my judgment P:)

The problems with fan characters seem to be mostly confined with the Western fans, both with the rampant immature creators and with the rampant hate. Would like to know what's up with that...

Well, Kellyn is a character that I envision to always have an assault rifle with a grenade launcher slung across his back, and he's much more mature and pragmatic in contrast to his canon portrayals. He's just good at hiding it, that's all.

Personally, I think OCs should be used as support cast members at best in stories that involve canon characters (the only exception I'll make here is the portrayal of legendaries, since they can go either way as canon materials depict them as mindless eldrich abominations at best) though they should have their own moments of glory once in a while.

Well, he's horrible primarily because he doesn't even have any source material! Literally, his personality is completely left to those that have the imagination to envision it. I just see Kellyn as more of a quiet yet strategic combatant with plenty of inner monologue while Leon is the still-new recruit that still has a lot to learn (though MegaAuthor's portrayal of him will be a bit more mature and older version).

You sort of answered your own question there. By Western, I assume you mean Americans. They're the rebellious type...I mean, the country itself was born via a revolution. No matter how bad the OCs are or how much hate they're projecting, they'll constantly do it because it's their way. Do note that this is not a generalization of ALL Americans as a whole (I can be considered part, since I'm from Canada and our country is a part of North America after all...not to mention we're (sorta) turning into a USA version 2).

I agree with you there (about OC's), although that may be because 1) most OC writers want their fan character to have the spotlight and 2) most OC writers don't write decently. Then again the two might be related.

Canon Legendaries in the games are basically just superpowered Poke's, and in the anime movies... well, let's not go there.

Kellyn's 8-persons depictions literally has 8 different versions of him, but let's not go there either. P: Instead, I'm just glad to finally have a depiction that's any close to my own.

my first thought, was oh look, awesomeness. no lie. I've always liked this pairing, especially the way you draw it out.

I do see the wonkiness in Kellyn, but hey, progress not perfection. besides it is a weird angle, kinda from knee level.

It IS a weird angle, or maybe just a weird... pose that I picked. *excaliburface* Or a synergy of both

(Do you think his head is too small, by chance? Because I shrank it a bit from the sketch and still can't judge whether I should've xD)

In any case, thank you ever so kindly =P On both accounts/bricked

a close call on the head, maybe a tinsy bit too small, but like we established the angle is weird and the pose challenging.


... what the hell is excalibur face?
