Good Omens: Crowley and Aziraphale by Kaytara Good Omens: Crowley and Aziraphale by Kaytara
Decided to try out my snazzy Copics and crayons on these two. *hugs them to death* Doesn't matter that I had other plans for the evening, bah. :D

Copics are lovely to draw with, but so very difficult to scan right. I needed to tweak this for half an hour just to get the colours to look the way they do on paper. *sigh*

Hi Kaytara! :w00t: (Skip the first two rambling paragraphs to get to the point. ^^')

So, after spotting references here and there around forums and other I finally decided to get a hold on Good Omens myself to see what the fuss was about. The library web search told me that there were only three copies in the whole Helsinki-area, but coincidently, one of them happened to be available at my local library. Didn't even have to order it. I went over and picked up a small quite worn out book. Strange, I thought, since this copy was printed just 7 years ago. But the Foreword explained to me that this was the natural state of Good Omen copies. I took all of this as a good sign.

I had a bit of trouble at work with it, because, well, obviously I wanted to keep reading instead of doing the more or less boring computer stuff that I am supposed to be doing. But, since I am a fairly responsible person, in the end I only spent my legal coffee breaks (or cocoa in my case) going through its pages. Okay, in all honesty, I might have slightly stretched them though. Sue me. ^^

So I read the book. Overall, I liked it very much. It had some boring parts, but also many hilarious ones. Particularly when two certain supernatural beings were involved. ;) Anyway, I still remembered your drawings of them from last year (which is why this rambling found its way here), and thus I couldn't imagine them looking like anything else. Which I don't mind, since I really like your style, definitely prefer it to the cover art on the book (it was some strange american edition) :D

Soo... I am currently hungry for both Fan Art and Fic and since your profile here contains both, I feel obliged to warn you that some more of my rambling might appear here or there over the following days. ^^;

Oh, and the above picture is how I ended up picturing Aziraphale (did I spell it right? Damn angel.. ^^) Of Crowley, I prefer the more detailed one that you've drawn. Now that I think about it, I did actually comment on that, even if I knew nothing of the story at the time. :) That pic still gives me goosebumps all the same.. ^^'

Ahaaaa, so this is how you picture them! Awesome! *tilts head* You have Aziraphale looking quite young, yes?

*peers* You know, I think this is the only drawing of them I've seen so far where Aziraphale is actually slightly taller than Crowley. And hey, Crowley even has golden pupils instead of black ones! Cool! (It's weird, but I particularly like Aziraphale's sweater here. It looks so woolly-warm.)

(Careful there. Hug too tight, and you might cut their unnecessary breath off.)

Er, the coloured pupils thing is more stylisation than anything... I mean, the pupil is basically a hole to the inside of the eye, it HAS to be black for any plausability... Azi has blue ones, see? And, uh, he's taller because maybe Crowley is leaning in or something? But yeah, I don't necessarily see Azi as hobbit-like or anything. And he probably should look a bit older, but I suck at hitting that vague age line that feels right for him. Oh well.
This is actually a bit closer to the look I had in mind for Crowley: [link] He came out slightly weird here.
I, er, have a whole bunchload of vague pencil sketches on them on Tumblr. [link] They end up looking somewhat different each damn time. >D

Thanks for commenting! :)

(ACK! Please, don't think that was criticism or anything! I was actually pointing out the stuff I particularly like!)

Hey, yeah, he does have blue ones. Neat. (Plausibility, my eye. Supernatural entities, woman!)
Leaning in? Of course! It all makes sense now!
Slightly weird? Are you nuts? The guy is handsome as all get-out.
Yep yep! Already seen quite a few of them! *pleased* Wait a sec. Did I seriously just see a post where you recommended The Sacred and the Profane, saying it's a very fun, heartwarming take on Good Omens? Did I? ... I shrink before your evil.

Every little bit helps. :devil: ;) I mean, the person was so bubbly and cheery and innocent and pure, having just finished Good Omens and jumping up and down about it... I'm almost ashamed to say that some people just want to watch the world burn, and apparently I'm one of them. >D

*from under the bed* And when said bubbly person comes banging on your digital door, asking why in Somebody's name you put him/her through that, what will you say? *grabs her blankie and retreats further* (Although I can't say I don't see the appeal. Not too long ago, I linked Sivaroobini to the fanart your story received. AHEM.)

WORD. I mean, my earliest fandom is this ages-old computer game, right? I was introduced to it at 7, and bam, instant waterworks. And the worst thing is, I can now totally understand why the writer chose that ending. Because of power, I tell you. Sadistic, sadistic power.

Haha - if that person comes knocking on my door, I will direct them to Crucible, Living Arrangements and Titanic (though I haven't read that one yet) and then to my series of fics, and then suggest to them that maybe Lucifer's eyes are grey because his name used to be Caphriel, and that Crowley, in HIS part of the ordeal, had to become King of Hell, and generally try to screw with their life in every way possible.

... I am never coming out from under here again. Food, please? (Also, what computer game was that? I might know it.)

You. Are. Evil.
...oh well that's just plain damn wonderful. The moment I read that you gave Lucifer grey eyes, alarm bells went off in my head. I cannot tell you how relieved I was when the name 'Caphriel' wasn't in there. (Literary telepathy is creepy.) If it had been, I think I would have broken my screen in half. And sent Virginia your way. (<-- That is a very serious threat.)
Soooo. Now it's my turn. A few weeks ago, I learned that somebody else - no, not afrai - had written a sequel to The Sacred and the Profane. Know what it reminded me of? Saw.

Hehe, bullet dodged, then. >D

...Another sequel...? Saw? I might regret this, but... Link, please? O_O
