Hi guys.

It's a flash, so RIGHT CLICK and ZOOM IN to check out the details if you so please~ Additionally, the 'Download' button will provide you with a larger view, which you can also zoom in on to see more at once. (That's my recommendation.)

But to the point - any Riku and Xehanort's Heartless (aka Ansem) together. That's my OTP. I like SoRiku and SoRiKai as much as anyone else, but these two together are simply my 'one true pairing'. Don't ask. Just think about it. It doesn't take much thought.

I actually run a fan site for this pairing - [link] - so if you're not afraid and slightly curious, go check it out. It's been up for almost two years now, going on 2000 pageviews. To those who know me, its no big secret I like this pairing. It's just not something I'll immediately mention to someone I've just met~

Hope you enjoyed. Flame and I'll laugh at you happily. I'm still basking in the awesomeness of what I've created. And my hands hurt like hell. And I'm hungry. Goodnight. ^__^

Ansem, Riku, Xehanort, lots of cool darkness and heartless critters (c) Nomura, Disney, Square, etc.

Also. DeviantART. Yes I'm talking to you. I like drawing in Flash so you better start allowing Flash files in other categories. =/ This is in no way animated, interactive, a movie, an intro or any of the other categories that Flash files are allowed in and its certainly as hell not going to sit in my scraps. Kthxbai.

I've seen this posted on tumblr without credit to me. >/

Because some people fail to read the rules posted on my profile and on my line art gallery I've been forced to return to every deviation individually to post this notice: If you're going to color my artwork you MUST link back here and you MUST NOT submit it to ANY groups. Doing so voids my permission for you to color it and as such I will have to report it as theft from here on out. You ARE allowed to color my art so long as it does NOT end up in groups AND you link back. Not that hard is it? If you need a transparent .png it may or may not be available, but there's no harm in asking.


One day I plan on redrawing this. I won't be giving out a png of this particular piece. Yet.

I'll have to find the file and save a solid .png of it so it can be colored. Any particular dimensions (in pixels) you'd like it at? Just nice and big?

I'd also like to redraw parts of it, if you don't mind. This one is kind of old now and I'm sooooo much better at drawing masculine faces now, and I'd like to fix Ansem's face. If you can wait...?

I'll see what I can do in the next few days.

I love how detailed I can get with this program~

On this particular one it really started to irk me that I fail at drawing manly faces so I've trying harder recently. I hope when I get to work on my Ansem picture for the club it turns out to die for.

The real trick to manly faces that I discovered quite by accident was the NOSE! You can't be afraid to draw a strong nose. With a slight bump on the bridge of the nose, ANYONE looks more manly and usually 5-10 years older and darkly sexy! <333

You should give it a shot sometime in your doodles. You'll see what I mean.

This is a crack pairing you know that right
Reply
:iconssceles:
ssceles Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yes, I'm perfectly aware of that. But considering people merely assume SoRiku is canon, I find every pairing involving Riku just as likely: Crack. SoRiku may be fanon canon, but its still not really there. I can't not like SoRiku, I see just what anyone else sees for evidence.

But I do believe 'true' crack, by definition, is when characters never even exchange dialogue. You may not like it, but Ansem and Riku have quite a bit of alone time. With just eachother. And ample amounts of darkness.

For the sake of this picture I made it nice and happy and consensual looking, but I'm also perfectly aware Riku hates this man to the core and I figure any consent would be dubious, if not nonexistent. xD

Only... there's more to Ansem than you see. Especially with Birth by Sleep. Since 'Ansem' is really 'Xehanort's Heartless' and the 'Xehanort' is actually-- well, I won't get into that. I've changed my mind here and there. In the end, I think perhaps all around the Riku replica is better fit for 'Ansem' to begin with, considering at least Repliku likes the darkness. xD

So, if you know about the goings on of Birth by Sleep, you might need to look at this in a different light: There's something worthwhile, deep inside Ansem, worth saving, worth forgiving, worth rescuing. There's more to him than what's on the surface. In that sense, perhaps I'd ship Terra and Riku if not for the ten year time gap and the fact Terra didn't make it out of Birth by Sleep with the best of luck.

Hope it clears things up, sorry you don't like this (not many people do at face value, and I just laugh at them), and yes, I know its crack. If SoRiku exists merely because they're best friends and Sora broke down on his knees crying, Ansem/Riku exists because me and several others just snicker when we hear the word 'submit'. (Riku's side of re:CoM is impossible to play through without taking half of everything Ansem says the wrong way. >_>)

D= I know, its rough. Just practice. I actually did a whole sheet of just trying to practice, even though it was kind of chibi as hell. [link] I've gotten better since then, but it helped. It's about as bad as drawing Axel. x_x Only, after those first three brushed back spikes there's not a billion others to worry about... just nice straight flowing beauty.

The way you draw Ansem he actually looks hot.... so I will have to agree with this pairing.

The Ansem in the game terrifies me when I try to beat KH1 at night.... I don't know why though....

But I love this art!

The voice actor for 'Ansem' in the first game, Billy Zane, was around 26 at the time. I've bent my mind to imagining Ansem the age of his voice actor. (Any which way, at least he's a lot younger than the bald guy in the Birth by Sleep trailers.)

Ika-Haru Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009
eh, true.... that old guy was named Ansem though....that's what Terra called him at least
Reply
:iconssceles:
ssceles Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mmm, no. The bald guy's is definitely Xehanort. Go watch the trailers again~ (And in all accounts he is referred to as 'Master Xehanort' and is known as MX on the forums at KHInsider.) Ansem the Wise finds the teen that becomes Xemnas/'Ansem' later on, but when he finds him, he is without memory (apparently) and also goes by Xehanort.

Incidentally, when Riku was stuck in "Ansem's" form, he started referring to himself as Ansem, also. (DiZ asked him his name, and he said Ansem - and DiZ laughed at the irony but said nothing of it.)

The major theory is that Terra is the boy that Ansem the Wise found (at the end of the KH2FM+ secret ending, Terra's eyes turn that uncanny orange/yellow). He'd be going by the name Xehanort in the same way that Riku caved and started calling himself Ansem.

Yush, lack of details on the hair - I know. But I also didn't draw his abs, either. I was thinking that when/if I color it I'd do the details of those areas in color. Just skin highlights for the abs, so they aren't OMG WE'RE HERE, and see what kind of transparency I can play around with the hair over his armor... @_@

And Zombieland isn't at the theater across from Safeway, and we don't exactly own a car to visit the drive through with, hun. x_x
