Jack and Aku by NightmareHound Jack and Aku by NightmareHound
Um... Don't ask. I have no answers. But I think that this is the closest of slash fanart I've ever done.

I guess.

Edit: I'm sorely embarassed that I even drew this but heck, let's put the Crit option on at least.

Jack and Aku by ~NightmareHound An interesting take on the rivalry between Aku and Samurai Jack. As the suggester says: "One of the rarer pieces of Samurai Jack fanart where Jack and Aku aren't fixated on killing each other." ( Suggested by In-The-Machine and Featured by alexandrasalas )

Oh dear, Spotify just put "Growing on me" by the darkness on. He had too much fun being Ikra.

I am creeped out very much. But to some, I guess, this may come across as 'crossing the line twice' (tv tropes).
Good colours.

NightmareHound Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012
And exactly what in this would count as CrossingTheLineTwice?
Reply
:icondimitian:
Dimitian Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012
Just the nature of the two characters and the setting in the picture. It's difficult to explain, but yeah, it creeps me out.

:iconnightmarehound:
NightmareHound Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012
Yeah but that's not really the point of CrossingTheLineTwice.
"any time a little exaggeration would provoke a negative reaction, but exaggeration Up to Eleven is fine, that's Crossing the Line Twice."

Actually, that last reply just gave me an explanation; Full Metal Panic's Sousuke and Gauron are sometimes put as a slash couple, and they are bitter enemies. This, to me, takes that formula to a whole new level.

NightmareHound Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Yeah but that has nothing to do with the trope CrossingTheLineTwice, sheesh. FoeYayShipping (to what your example implies and what my pic might barely be) isn't the same as CrossingTheLineTwice, even if you personally feel creeped out.

Very well. I concede the point.

I love the fact that they know each other so well that they can be relaxed in company but always being rivals (with hilarious consecuences xDD) You have capture perfectly the temperament of each one: Aku with that cunning and sly look on his face and Jack being all pensive about his next movement xD Oh, and...is Jack left handed?
Reply
:iconnightmarehound:
NightmareHound Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
Ha well, Jack being left handed was just my screw up, as I originally designed this composition to be the opposite, but as I was finishing this I noticed how much better it looked mirrored and then I forgot to fix his arm : D
