Strange encounters by TheCrazyOneOfTheGang Strange encounters by TheCrazyOneOfTheGang
An entry into the amazingly talented :iconzimeta:'s contest, where we were set the task of drawing her characters (and maybe some of our own alongside them!)

I couldn't decide whether I wanted to draw characters from "May The Rain Come" or "Jupiter", because I am completely in love with both comics; but considering I'm a bit of a sci-fi nut, I went with the latter. Plus I always wanted to draw a crossover with that universe and the one where my mutated animals existed (because it's all spacey n' stuff :D) so this was the perfect excuse.

Rick and Kit come across Jupiter and Snow on their travels. Rick, being an engineer and having a love for all things technical, is fascinated by the mysterious robot that is Jupiter, while his girlfriend tries to figure out exactly what kind of alien creature Snow is (oh Kit if only you knew).

Go check out Zims work this instant, you'll love it!

Looks good enough to be a cartoon network show. I don't know how you do it, but the bar is heightened every time you post.

Damn, I really need to get back to drawing...

I'd happily watch Jupiter if it was a TV series :D

Practice my friend, the more you draw and experiment the more you learn. Trust me there has been a lot of "try something, get it wrong, try again a different way, get it less wrong" until I make something that I'm happy with. Hopefully I can keep going and improving.

Draw! Draw I say!

They look awesome. :D I really like how you drew these characters, especially Kit snarling, and how she's holding Snow. :lol:

Hahaha yeah, she's just like "never seen anything like this before, weird. What planet did THIS come from?"

:giggle: I take it they come across a LOT of things like that on their travels - makes me wonder how she'd react to Nibbler from Futurama. :lol:

They do visit a lot of strange places while on the run, some inhabited by strange creatures, others not (but bizarre none the less).

She'd probably freak out about his third eye (two eyes is the maximum she's usually seen on a living creature) but other than that she'd have no real issue with him. Nibbler may not like her though, the Planet Express crew have had bad experiences with cats.

I know who would love him though, Lucas. He'd probably want to try moderating the ship so it can run on Nibbler Power while Rick is all "No! My baby is perfect the way she is!"

Thank you :hug:

Yeah, Kit and Rick have no idea what they looked like as animals, so they can't make the connection between a regular cat (or cockroach for Rick) and themselves.

Glad you like it :excited:

Heehee, great idea for an entry! It seems the characters match up quite well. :D If Rick's lucky he might just learn a thing or two to reverse engineer. And I think Snow will win Kit over.
And you need to draw more of Rick and Kit. They're so cute. :hug:

I really like your super smooth lineart, too. I have the curse of being tablet-less so it's hard for me to achieve the same sort of clean image. ^.^
Thank you so much for entering!

:squee: I'm so glad you like it! I've wanted to draw your characters for ages, so this seemed like a perfect excuse ;P

Rick would be like a kid in a candy store learning about Jupiter, especially if it means he can get his hands dirty (all 4 of them); and I agree Kit will warm up to Snow eventually, probably because the cat has a familiarity about her...plus Snow is too adorable not to love (she's so fluffy!).

I love drawing them, it's only been recently though that I got 100% happy with how they look, so I'm looking forward to drawing them being all cute. They're the only characters I have who are a couple, so it'll be interesting to work with that.

But your art looks great the way it is, it's so natural and charismatic :D I love the way you draw
The tablet has been a Godsend for me when I draw digitally though. I was always more comfortable drawing on paper because my hand was less restrained, so the tablet makes it easier to replicate that feeling.

Happy to enter :hug:
