"When I am with you I can do anything." -Goliath to Demona in Gargoyles
This is a long time in the making, and again like "Detox", Argent Fatalis made this possible for commissioning my time it took to make this.
This is the first time I have done Slick and Cleo in the same image in many years. This also gave me an opportunity to really show and flesh out their updated designs.
The meaning behind this image (besides the fact both of them are immensely enjoying themselves flying in the air on some futuristic flying devices) is absolute happiness and enjoyment with another person whom you really care deeply about.
The flying devices were actually inspired by the design of the Subaru Baja (my dream car which I was able to get early this year) It isn't blatant, but I wanted it to be inspired. Cleo's craft's color combo was inspired by the red and silver Baja. Slick's was going to be Yellow and silver (like my car) but due to the angle of his craft the yellow doesn't show.
In contrast to "Detox", this art symbolizes the overall upswing in my life now that I have been without any toxicity dragging me down. The enjoyment these two are showing was also inspired a bit by the absolute enjoyment and happiness I get when I am with my best friend playing basketball together. Besides getting my car, playing basketball and spending time with him has been some of my favorite moments of this year.
