Sketchie Vesper Facility Switchie Reffie by Enaxn Sketchie Vesper Facility Switchie Reffie by Enaxn
Oh-hoho.

Done for the contest over at :iconthe-vesper-facility:! The contest was to design an original character to fit into the Vesper Facility, so of course I didn't actually do that! :dummy:. Basically one of my FAVORITE most favorite things to do is take Switchback and allow her to wriggle into other people's headcanons >__>. Like it's probably my most favorite thing ever. So I TOTALLY jumped in on the opportunity for Switchie to play with Linan and Jeckle haha. SO YES I took Switchback and naturalified her up for the occasion! And I actually really like her this way <___<. I might keep this version on as an older version of her or something. This version of her is already older than the Switchback I always draw and talk about. So yes background info omg this might be long AHEM:

So after the events of The Last Aysse which I'm resurrecting, like, now. I have way too much ground to cover!, Switchback ends up having to peruse the Universe with some of her comrades in order to keep the Universe's living beings safe from a particularly nasty group of space-y Aysse called the Celestial Aysse. She does this by having her more powerful friends open up a portal that allows them to dance into an inter-dimensional space where basically everything in the Universe overlaps, and from there they can step out into anywhere in the Universe. Problem is that Switchback doesn't know where to step out, and frequently wanders off from the group like the moron she is, and gets spit out of the inter-dimensional space into literally anywhere in the Universe. She's always subconsciously drawn to places with life energy though, so it's not like she'll step out into the inside of star or something. Sadly <__<. But yes. Because of this, she ends up a lot of completely foreign planets all alone until her friends find her. Which they eventually do, but it can take forever and a day sometimes haha. BUT YES.

So in this instance, she steps out into the Vesper Facility. She's seen other tigers around, but she doesn't trust them. She tends to only hang out with things she feels like she can trust, which is basically only things that she can easily kill if she's wrong. She's the only known maltese tiger in the facility, and she's well aware of this, so she tends to keep to a remote Arboretum way off the main core of the facility. The Arboretum is dark and isolated, but she has a bunch of rat friends there and she likes to hang out with small animals and plants, so it's not the worst for her. She'll lend a helping hand out to anyone who seems like they genuinely need it, but she otherwise likes to keep her distance from the various social systems set up by the other tigers and such. She's idly trying to find a way out, but she's not very good with direction so she'll probably only get out if she's either escorted or rescued haha. She's also older here than my Switchback. My Switchback is like early 20s, and Switchback here is like 30-36ish. She found that gear and wrench drape-y. It likely fell off of one of the Cabal Brotherhood Caduceus, but she thought it was shiny and makes a fun clinky sound when she walks, so it's hers now! :dummy:

.... tl;dr I wanted a canon excuse to draw Switchback with Moonsong's characters <__< *shot*

ANYWAY YES I hope all of this is okay, Moonsong! Thanks for making such an awesome contest! :heart:

Hey! Good luck to you too! I really have no plans on winning as my design is based off of an existing character and that wasn't very creative to begin with, let alone now! So you'll totally blow me out of the water!

And thank you so much for the watch btw! :heart:

I really really like the look you've got going on here. How come you come up with such awesome characters? And the color of blue, that muted tone is very delicious. I really like how it looks on her. I also for some reason like her wrench and gear accessories.

Yes, really love the look of Switchback here. You make me want to draw more cats.

This isn't *too* fair as this is a character I already have with the same markings and overall color scheme. It's the same blue I always make her, I just moved to the left on her color splotch so she's a little desaturated haha. But thank you so much! :heart:. And YES you should draw more cats! Your cats are so gorgeous! <333333

Yeah, existing or not, the fact that you can meld her into other people's worlds without too much trouble, and you also have a stipulation in your own world that allows her to do that is just spiffy and awesome. It all works, and she still has to adjust to life in a new place, which has it's own challenges, so as a character she's evolving. I guess a little desaturated looks like a lot on my monitor, but I do love it. Thankies, Eventually I'll draw more cats. <3
