The Animorphs by lackofa The Animorphs by lackofa
This started out as bust practice and turned into fanart? SUPA SYMBOLIC PORTRAIT ARRRRRRT YEAH

But yeah I pretty much never draw the actual crew, just because I don't really have a solid picture of how they're supposed to look. Also I really love andalites. So, I dunno. Just experimenting I guess. Trying to capture their respective views/personalities more than their faces. I really think Jake's the most successful, just 'cause both his morph and his portrait blend so well. I couldn't duplicate that with the others, it was kinda frustrating. Ah well.

I was trying to find some Animorphs pictures since I have to make a presentation for my English Literature class about a book or book series I love, and I found your art! Is it okay if I use it? I will totally give credits.
Also, lovely art! It's beautiful how it captures the essence of the characters.

I will be putting their portraits in the andalite sky, and of course I'm going to put Ax's to, then I will make an andalite and human baby looking up at them. ( I am going to draw my own Ax )

I'm sorry, but I'm not quite comfortable with the idea of these portraits being pasted onto something else. Honestly I think you would be better off drawing your own portraits of them. It'd make for more consistency with your own style and would most likely fit better with what you're wanting to depict. Which sounds like a pretty cool idea, so I'd love to see what you come up with!

I remember reading this book series and I was so obsessed with it when i was a kid...was really disappointed that they didnt keep the ABC tv series Animorphs going as i think it had potential :)

Gotta save my fave characters were: Ax, Jake, Tobias and Marco :D

You captured their characters really well - I like how well they blend with their battle morphs, how Tobias is hidden behind his morph - after all he ended up being more hawk than human.

The style is great! You made digital art look like traditional ink drawing. :)

I love how well you've characterized each one in such a small space- Rachel and Tobias in particular. I think Cassie is also really interestingly done because of the contrast between her worried, sad human face and the wolf's snarl- it makes for a good commentary on the contrast in her own nature.

Thanks, glad you like XD Cassie was definitely one I had to think about more. She had a really.. conflicted nature. I really feel like she committed some of the /worst/ acts of the animorphs, and yet for the most part functioned as their moral compass, it really is kind of an odd duality.

The expressions of both the human and animal forms are perfect. It's a nice way of showing the everyday attitudes vs the battle mindset.

I think you're really underselling Rachel and Tobias and Cassie. Marco and Jake are very indistinguishable for me here but the other three are recognizably them.

lackofa Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013   Digital Artist
glad you like those three XD though like I said, I do have difficulty with my mental image of pretty much the entire group, so there's very little consistency in how I can draw them. I'll work on it

Quite excellent, the juxtaposition between the characters and their signature creatures shows a lot about their personality. Also, the inking and blending between the characters and their morphs is very well done, particularly Jake, Cassie, and Marco.

These are brilliant. I am in awe. And a little envious of your skills, that, too o:
Reading the comment below, I must say that if you ever did make any Animorphs comic I'd probably have to go hide somewhere in artistic shame, because you'd do so much better than I am at the comic version of The Invasion I'm currently working on cx

Aw, thanks man! But geez no don't think like that XD gotta do your own thiiiing... And your comic's got a good start, I like what you have so far. It's interesting to see how everyone has their own way of rendering characters/andalites, really.

Fantastic!! If you have no other life goals, might I suggest re-making the series in comic book form? because that would be stupendous XD You do the best animorphs fan art. I was actually super surprised that you do people well too,(and I think they look perfect for their personalities and such) since your gallery is mostly alien related. If you could draw these characters more often, I could die happy. :) anyway, this is really cool. keep up the good work etc etc!

Haha! To be honest I've been thinking about doing short comics, though I dunno if I'd be able to pull off an entire book. That is a looot of planning/time. We'll see I guess!
And thanks, haha. I'll endeavor to bring around more variety in my... fanart, lol. THE ALIENS ARE JUST SO INTERESTING TO EXPLORE, I CAN'T HELP MYSELF XD

Love this!! Just finished the entire series the other week... twelve years too late!
They look like the sort of inked illustrations you might find as a chapter heading in a children's novel. And I definitely see their personas coming through in their expressions. :)
