If Humans Crossed the Street Like Animals
Rose and Jade as Urbance dancers. I just, really wanted it.
Well this was sure fun! Thanks for everyone who came to the stream, you guys are the best. :)
Obviously these are my headcanon body types/heights of the trolls as adults. I figure they’re closer to the same size as kids. Generally I think trolls get larger and taller as they go up the hemospectrum, peaking with the bluebloods and going back down with them seadwellers
i might put some notes on each character later but for now I’ll just let the drawin’ speak for itself. :B
Reglubbin’ for the day crowd and because I can. Also, have some commentary on each troll in case you care. Sorry about your dash, I can’t readmore this ‘cause it’s a photoset.
First off, the little wedge-shaped thingies are vestigial wriggler legs. Basically my headcanon is that young trolls go through one or more pupations between wrigglerhood and adolescence, during which their limbs fold into their bodies and the more humanoid features grow in around them. They lose sensation and harden, forming a protective barrier around the ribcage and internal organs, and though they become less prominent as the trolls continue to grow they still remain visible.
Karkat: So I figure he is the most human-like of all dem trolls. Human-sized, with round little human ears and his oh-so-damning human-red blood. Long torso, short legs, stocky bodytype. Basically he is like a chubby little angry munchkin cat, all hissing and spitting at you and you’re like “bby no it’s okay, i’m sorry you fell in the sink let’s get you a towel…”
Aradia: I kind of dig a bodacious Aradia. Like, strong and toned from all dat flarping and adventuring but also full-figured and curvy, makin’ them poor boys sweat and spark and such. She has floppy ears like a ram and lots of thick, kinky hair.
Tavros: Thick neck, broad shoulders, slim waist, short legs, floppy ears. Def going for the bull thing with this fella. It is impossible for me to draw Tavros without at least two of the following: ear tag, nose ring, unibrow. And now I want to draw him sitting under a cork tree smelling flowers….
Sollux: His body is just that thing that carries his brain around. Idk I like skinny!Sollux, I’m into the headcanon that the psionics consume a lot of energy. So yeah it’s not so much that he doesn’t eat/take care of himself (though that might be part of it) I just figure he could probably eat constantly and still be rail-thin. He’s still p much a babe, though.
Pointy ears with split tips. Forked tongue. Double-set of wriggler legs. Supernumerary nipples if you squint. Giving Sollux two of things that he should only have one of is never not awesome. :I
Nepeta: Lean and athletic, broad shoulders and slim hips. She can run down her prey, chase it up a tree, hold it down and efficiently dispatch it. Mee-ow. Yep she has cat ears in addition to her cat-shaped horns, fight me. Also freckles and a cleft upper lip because kitty features.
Kanaya: Kay so I wanted to give her the ridiculous legs of a fashion figure but also wide hips because of her whole maternal theme. She probably can’t touch her toes. I am still on the fence about her design — thinking about giving her more definition in her arms from toting that chainsaw around idk. Swooshy pointed ears, curved horns, generally just sweeping, elegant lines for her features. Kanaya’s p great.
Terezi: Sharp and angular, kind of pear-shaped. Dat bootay. Terezi facing the wrong way in group pictures will never not be funny. I don’t know what she’s communicating to Vriska here but I’m pretty sure it’s not appropriate for polite company. Anyway I figure Terezi’s kind of short for her blood caste. Also, I didn’t draw it here, but my sis has an interesting headcanon that her skin is burn-scarred from the sun exposure that blinded her. I generally draw that in color and make it look like scales to carry her whole dragon motif. Pointed, finned ears also because dragons.
Vriska: Broad-shouldered, thin, pointy, lean muscle. Her ‘do is a long, natty mess of dreadlocks and loose, kinky hair that is a pain in the ass to draw. Vriska was one of the first characters I took off from the fanon with, and one of my favorites to draw even if it is difficult.
Equius: I used to draw Eq with a lot of muscle definition, but lately I’ve taken to drawing him with a more heavyset, strongman bodytype. Powerful shoulders, broad waist, strong legs — I think that communicates the whole horse theme a little better too. Sometimes I draw him with long hair but usually I give him a mane of dreadlocks. Upright, pointed ears like a horsie.
Gamzee: I think I drew him a bit bigger here than I meant to, didn’t really account for his slouch. Oh, well. He’s not as thin as Sollux but has a more prominent bone structure, I kind of like a skeletal theme for this fella. Cool dreads, floppy goat-ears. Dave’s underpants. (I’m sorry my shipping shows even in boring static poses)
Eridan: My headcanon Eridan is pretty feminine because my headcanon Eridan is basically Reaver. He’s got the toned arms and chest of a disciplined marksman, with a slim waist and a bit of curve to his hips because why not. Seadwwellers have earfins, slit noses, longish feet, and gills.
Feferi: I like younger Fefs being an adorable little chubster, but I see her growing into kind of a glamazon, tall and bodacious and made of well-padded muscle. Big hair, freckles, and vintage pornstar boobs. Fefs is the queen of my heart and also my patron troll. <3
A’ight kids will be drawn later, breezy’s got stuff to do.

A mini comic I did the art for, produced for Grayhaven Comics’ upcoming compilation, ‘You Are Not Alone.’ Written by :DevDestiny-Smasher:, this standalone comic also serves as a slice of backstory for Jane Fitzpatrick — one of the primary characters of the Avatar: tLA/LoK fanproject, ‘What I Learned at SRU.’ Jane’s character concept was directly based on ‘Smellerbee,’ and in the story Jane serves as a reimagining of the character.
You Are Not Alone will be: “A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse.” You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1
You can read more of Jane’s story in this short piece: http://destiny-smasher.deviantart.com/art/Side-Pocket-An-SRU-Short-211078228

PS : Loreena McKennitt is the best music for that character ;_;
Sometimes you make an argument that’s so solid and logical that you’re absolutely certain you got your point across, then someone replies to it with something so mindblowingly stupid that you have no idea how they managed to graduate from middle school.
