animorphs is probably my biggest forever-love fandom.

rachel and jake character study. i tried to convey their internal conflicts with their postures.
this isn't supposed to be a scene as much as two portraits side-by-side. in putting them side-by-side i wanted to show the breakdown of their relationship from two cousins to that of a commander and his best (and scariest) warrior.

i usually draw girls with fuller hips so it was actually a bit of a challenge to draw rachel with a more appropriate teenage figure.

you can see a close-up (see their eyes a little better) here: [link]

So I recently started reading these books over again from the start, being one of my favourite series of all time, and then naturally fanart search followed and I love your version of my favourite and second favourite character, Jake and Rachel respectivly.

I also realized, getting into yet another old series that these two reminds me a lot of TMNT's Leonardo and Raphael, with their personalities and roles on their respective teams. 

last off, all your Animorphs art is lovely^^

I love this. Jake and Rachel are my favourite characters and I think you captured their very interesting relationship well.

Ahhh, Rachel- one of my most favorite female characters of all time. I loved that she wasn't the "chick". Love how you got their attitudes and frustrations with one another perfectly!
