Passerby by Vaporeon249 Passerby by Vaporeon249
Finally, the final version of this fav.me/d6gpaev .The scene pictured is from "Mewblade - Part 2: Death, Decisions and Destiny" fav.me/d38an0l where Mewblade is transposed into a blur of multitudes of different concepts of the afterlife. Ah, crossovers. If you have 200+ characters and character designs, who cares about crossovers when you can go grab a cluster and just plop them in as various dead and sort of dead things. Left to right: Annabelle Mortis (temporary Grim Reaper), Braid Baker (old-school Vampire: The Masquerade, Brujah. Ugh, suck at drawing men), Emma (same universe as Mewblade. To be fair, she started off dead), Val Colin Bastion III (ghost), Mewblade, Jessica Halbourne (another ghost. Same verse as Val), and Bird Face (one of my demons. Inspired by an onion. A really ugly onion that probably half-rotted.)

In any case, Mewblade is my Legendary Mewthree whose function is the Decider of Fate (translation: You break our Pokemon laws, I have a right to outline if you live or die). Her skill set is due to her more representative title, which is Letum Falcifer, Death Carrying A Scythe. Aside the actual true life giver that also shares her Decider of Fate title, Mewblade is an organic death machine, but she is also a skilled healer and will resurrect fallen individuals from time to time. And also unlike the proper healer of the group, she tends to be repeatedly punished and reminded that despite the fact she can resurrect the dead it does not mean it is either her right or her proper capacity to do so. The process hurts, it exposes her to unseen forces, and the final phase depicted here, "Soul To The Living" exposes her to the afterlife following the completion of the process with her respected charge. It's the kind of reminder that makes her hope she never dies. The only miserable looking one though is Emma, and well, Bird Face is just... Bird Face.

I'm keeping my background! I don't care if it doesn't make sense. It's pretty, I like it, so there. Background is chopped shopped from the last attempt at the same exact image which completely failed. Mewblade took so long to paint, it sickens me. Thankfully the other way-too-many characters got the warped and desaturated effect which meant entirely less effort... except for painting this many characters. Got the effect so we could differentiate that she is important and in a sense alive, and no one else is which is why she isn't blurred, gloriously colorful and taller than everyone else. Maybe I'll show the compilation that is suppose to not have Mewblade later, and without the blur and blah everything, but right now posting this then bed. This took way too much time, and it will probably either a.) be ignored or b.) be ripped at. More effort = less receptive response, always. Dozens of hours later...

This is pretty trippy visually, like the Soul to the Living pic this one also makes my eyes hurt if I look at it too long.

Fitting a bunch OCs in always fun when one can do it.

Only if you make it absolutely bonkers and ridiculous, then it would be really fun!
