Revenge of the Sylph (Non-Canon Got Tiger Design) by DubiousDerringer Revenge of the Sylph (Non-Canon Got Tiger Design) by DubiousDerringer
*wonk*

I know I'm a bit late since the real GT!Sylph design was already revealed like a week ago, but I was already about two thirds done with this when that update happened. I know that there's no shame in getting blindsided by canon, especially since we had no way of knowing that Aranea was the Sylph of Light or that she had gone God Tier until we saw it with our own eyes. It would have been a waste to give up on it outright after putting so much work in, but I'm not going to pretend like it wasn't a huge blow to my confidence as well as my motivation...

Canon may have stolen my thunder, but my thunder is still something to be proud of.

--Andrew Hussie owns this character--

Everyone knows that the reason we'll never see Kanaya as a God Tier Rainbow Drinker is because Homestuck would be over, she would be unstoppable. Even Lord English would just take one look at her, laugh nervously, and say "I'm outie."

(Anyone who can guess all the inspirations for her outfit is my new best friend ;P)

I actually wasn't too impressed with Hussie's Sylph design. Yours is better in my opinion! :iconjohnegderpplz:

Hehe, thanks again . That really isn't all that surprising because the reason I decided to start on my own design was because I didn't like many of the fan designs I'd seen which were made pointlessly "airy" at the expense of elegance.

Of course, then the canon sylph turned out to be more like those fan designs, so much for streamlined elegance I guess ^^;

:iconandrewhussieplz: Hussie's gonna Huss.

:iconlord-englishplz: Until he gets gun downed by Lord English.

Such is life~ At least we can still enrapture ourselves in our own imaginations of all the other God Tiers he hasn't revealed yet.

Hehe, yes well I can only hope that if I have any more interesting ideas for designs I can get them drawn out before Andrew beats me to the punch again from beyond the grave ;P

You could always draw your interpretation of Kanaya's A1 Ancestor before Hussie introduces her! The pattern thus far is that the ancestors are the antitheses of their descendants, personality wise.

:iconaraneaplz: Polite and nice.
:iconvriskaplz: Rude and a cutthroat.

:iconfeferiplz: A complete sweety.
:iconmeenahplz: Somewhat homicidal.


:iconkanayaplz: A total darling.
:iconraisinsplz: Oh God I don't even want to imagine.

Well only Aranea's polite bookishness was actually all that surprising, Meenah being nasty and violent was completely expected from what we knew of the Condesce's personality. We know that the Dolorosa was demure and motherly, a bit like Kanaya without the vengeful streak. So if her pre-scratch self is going to be an extreme antithesis of either her descendant or her post-scratch self she's either going to be a complete pacifist or a completely self-absorbed (And possibly more aggressive) individual.

I'm personally hoping she's a badass Rainbow Drinker too, but she can't be too much like Kanaya :D

i see

well when you're busting in to kick some ass you aren't very likely going to have a shawl fluttering in the wind
or at least that's probably not what the opposition is thinking

When you think about it none of the godhood getups are all that practical for fighting in, but reality-bending super powers as well as flight probably make up for the lack of practicality don't you think? :aww:

Thank you for saying so! I'm not sure exactly what you mean by that, but the design and planning process for this was a bit longer than it usually is for me, yes :aww:
