Not as easy as it looks by nove Not as easy as it looks by nove
ALRIGHT! So this one gave me a big chase around!!
:iconsilveremerald: wanted a little father/son feeling post hoverboot training with Azimuth and Ratchet.

I had sketched SUCH a simple sketch and scanned it it, digitially drew it and had it all colored and nice until the background?

Then I somehow lost or saved over theoriginal file so I had to traditionally REDRAW it since I digitally sketched it and I slapped some nice colors on so HOPE YOU LIKE IT, It's cute but boy it was a massive pain todo twice over haha!

Based on this picture's title, I can take this in two ways that both fit the mood of this picture, I can take it as Ratchet being exhausted from trying to learn how to use the hoverboots, which isn't easy for him seeing as he is, no doubt, still a bit overwhelmed by the fact that he ISN'T the last Lombax in the universe and 'cause hoverboots are probably really difficult to control. And I can take this as Alister's point of view, 'cause as the last adult Lombax from before the fall, it's up to him to teach Ratchet about his kind and basically be the father figure the boy never had. I can imagine it's not easy being a father, especially if your charge is already considered an adolescent or adult, rather than an actual child, and the fact that Ratchet is the son of his best friend, who's death he might be, indirectly or directly (depends on who you ask), responsible for and because of that Ratchet's lived alone all his live, has to lay heavily on Azimuth's mind!

I really love both interpretations because it was intentionally the former but WOW I love the latter ;u;
I mean especially with Ratchet's dad having been Alister's best friend and all, it would be so hard to be a father figure to him trying to recall what he was like and probably weighing the ideas and such of how he would have taught him things.

Ahhhh that made me all heart soft <3!!

Thank you... It's really just yet another insane moment where my mind goes wild with possibilities I might or might not see. I saw this picture, the title, and my mind went crazy over it. I even put it in my favorites
