THAT ARMOR THO
ITS ALL RAINBOWS AND STUFF. AAAAAGH ITS SO GREAT. Okay freak out over lmfao but seriously that armor is the most dazzling fantasy armor I've ever seen! It's like lisa frank designed it (in the best possible way I swear, it's like if lisa frank went to RISD or CalArts and took a master class on character design).
And the inking here is top notch!! the little curlicue shadows in the epaulet are dazzling, and the gloves are wonderfully done! (every time I try to draw armor gloves (or whatever they're called!) it's so hard to keep them recognizable as hands!! But they're totally recognizable as hands here!! that's magic!)
side request-can we see the inks for this page? if you can't it's totally fine, I just want to ooh and aah over those little epaulet shadows oh my god those shadows are amazing
OH MY GOD I JUST GOT A THOUGHT if Nilus (well, Naima) is king, does that mean we'll see her in this armor eventually?? DO WE GET TO SEE TINY PRECIOUS WATER KING IN TINY PRECIOUS RAINBOW ARMOR BEING A BADASS OH MY GOOOD NOW IM FREAKING OUT AGAIN
also now i kinda wanna read an au where zakris became king and ruled instead of naima gosh i wonder how that would go
