No Control... by Zoroko No Control... by Zoroko

For ~robo-nyanya because she suggested that i do an Axl version of [link]

I'm not quite sure exactly how I feel about this piece....hmm
I don't like all the negative space in this, it really bothers me....XD

Anyway, I was trying to depict this as an X-9 type situation. I imagine that Lumine inflicted some kind of virus on Axl and that Axl would be taken over by this virus, thus the two different colored eyes. One Lumine type eye and one normal Axl eye. Also because of the virus he has to be locked up. That is just the general bases for this pic; I didn't really hurt him as bad as I did with X. For some reason I feel that if I do a Zero version of this that he won't get off so easy....XD

And ohmygosh it was so hard to color this in pastel colors without Axl looking to pink....I think I failed though...Is there such a thing as LIGHT RED without it being PINK? *goes crazy* XD

OMG Poor Axl!!!!! Being so bound up...I think I'd rather self-destruct! And is he CRYING?!! Screw everything, I'd do whatever it takes to get him outta there!
flippy509 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012   Artist

Sunnychance Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012
So would Sapphire.
TimeTravelerEon Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
And Eon.
Sunnychance Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012
Yep, and Eon. They'd both be pissed.

One of the few times they'd actually set their differences aside.

I adore how you colour! Amazing picture too.

Aww...poor Axl! Yeah, Capcom really needs to tell us what happened after X8.
Aniral Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Every time i see this I cry a little inside because Axl is without a doubt my favorite.

And yes you can get a pastel red without it being pink. Add white to a nice scarlet (NOT REGULAR RED, you can get scarlet by putting just a touch of yellow into a regular red.) and you have a pastel red that isn't pink-looking.

Trust me. I experimented with leftovers in my painting class for an hour or so before I discovered it.

I don't see why he doesn't just use the Chameleon ability to screw with the guards and get out of there. "YOU GOT THE WRONG GUY" And also, Zero was infected. In the canon storyline, Zero was actually the source of the virus. Poor Zero.
Drace-Empressa Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2015
brooo, read the description. This guy said "Doesn't think can't get away with using Zero". He's scared of the fanshield XD

I want to say something intelligent but I canīt come with something proper XD

I love this pic, I really luv Axl as a character and this pic is tragically cute ;A;

"You are a worthless prototype! Nothing more!" Seriously when he goes super sayian his transformation is cool. Thats basically what I like about him above all else. Im surprised Zero is amazed in X7. Durrr wouldnt you agree?
BLARGLEcomic Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2007
I think you did a good job with the red. :P

You may find this on YouTube fun: [link]
You have to watch it all the way through though. :giggle:

Tee hee, I'm such a sucker for these kinds of pictures~
Thrasirshall Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Out of the three, Axl's is the best I think. An X9 would be nice to be honest - and this would make a really cool comic cover for it :D
The cross-coloured eyes are a nice touch - especially the tear. I kinda feel more for Axl, especially since he's such a happy-go-lucky guy, it probably tears him up thinking he's becoming Maverick *sniff*

Also, I really, really admire that you use traditional means. Its hard to come by nowadays, but you've got such raw, brilliant talent :3

Okay, okay, lol - enough of my lickarsing. Going to favourite now :D

Woah that's awesome! :) Alot of mecha things going on, and... her eyes. They look really robotic without black pupils.

You do realise that Axl is a guy and you called him a girl.

The coloring completely beats me to death with goodness.
Piyoko-Elric Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2007
So beautiful...the coloring is so awsome!!^^
General-RADIX Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2006
I played around with the idea of Palette getting "jacked" (posessed) by Lumine and attacking everyone (albeit with Lumine-ish flair). Except they couldn't pin her down. Poor Axl-man...

Fav. XD

That would suck.. having the mental pain of being infected, and then not even being able to move.. =<

Anyhoo.. this pastel look is different then what I normally see you do, but I really like it.. =3 You pulled it off really well. And, the negative space didn't bother me at all.. X3

Omg.. he's crying.. :cries: :cries: :cries:
Sorry..I'm a little emotional right now. :)

I love the X-version, and now Axl gets some much-deserved attention! Attention that he doesn't appear to want... There's a bit of a sad and disturbing tone in here. I see what you mean with the space, but I think this still came out really well. ^^
Zoroko Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2006
Thank you very much~! ^o^
chibi-Mika-chan- Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2006
Even if he's not beaten up really, really bad, he looks like he's in hell. Poor Axl....
Jinto-Lin Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

I just hope is "Story" dont get into X9 cause id hate to not be able to use Axl in the next game
Zoroko Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2006
