Half body commission of Pit and Dark Pit in each others palettes from smash brothers!
I'd credit them, but I haven't been able to get a hold of them, they deleted their tumblr and haven't got back to me yet
Commission Info
Or check my front page for summer sale information

If you know me, than you know by now I'm pretty fond of these two in these palettes~ It was quite odd getting a commission for them like this, when I draw them like this from time to time on my tumblr!
It was a lengthy commission though, as many things have been going on X_x thankfully he was patient. Just wish I could credit his new tumblr or something ^^; Maybe he will contact me and I can update later!

To be honest though? I'm not exactly that fond of the outcome on this one >_> I feel...bad about it. I just had so many things going on it was hard to focus on such a time consuming commission and I fear the quality suffered because of it....

them some reeeeeeally ugly hands and arms :U
sorry for forcing you to look at them

I love to see dark pit smiling! Sadly The majority of the fandom portrays him
Like an edgy asshole, he was only aggro in the first chapters because no 1 but 2 armies were after him, one of them (pit) with direct orders to killing him, and you are totally right he does smile
Genuinely in the game here is the prove:

In 3 of this 4 image he is smiling but he does it so slightly that is hard to notice (but is not really his fault , when you awake in the middle of a war and everyone is trying to kill you or using you is hard to put up with a cheerful face)

Damn, you artists are an odd bunch.

Because in the few times you do see him in uprising he genuinely smiles, and not an arrogant smile, a pleasant smile because everyone is safe
I hate when people just turn him into this bag of angst because he has a lot more going on for  him personality wise than just 'ow the edge'

Surprised to see that this was a commission. You do draw KI on your own. It's not like there's much emphasis on making Pit's hands realistic in the games, so...

(Why are you so into KI if you don't mind sharing?)

When I tried to talk the commissioner out of it, he pretty much said he wanted to see the art drawn a specific way, and this was better than taking the chance that I MAY do it in the future?

Well, I've always had an affinity for Greek myth stuff, being part Greek and having a good chunk of my family live there, on an aunt who is a historian and actually acted as a tutor for me over summers when I was younger, adding to it I've always liked winged characters, makes Kid Icarus pretty appealing to me.
As for Uprising, it's actually odd because I have the exact opposite feel that pretty much the entire fanbase has on it. I hate how it was written. Seemed lazy, shallow and just all around bad. It was full of characters contradicting themselves from one chapter to the very next, and full of plot holes that don't make sense as well as some of the most obnoxious and poorly written characters I've ever seen hiding behind a pretty face (to me, just my opinion, people get all butthurt when I say this even though it's just my opinion) meanwhile, the controls are absolutely amazing, creative and unique(save for lefties getting the shaft). Just everything about how you can play the game I adore. All the different weapons, how it changes how you play, all the powers you can pick, the challenges in solo mode, and even the multiplayer is wicked solid. If it wasn't for that obnoxious writing, it would be the most perfect game to me.
I've clocked in over 1000 hours as it stands right now because I can just pick it up and play.
It's the same reason Splatoon is taking over what I play as well!

So to sum up this little ramble: It's fun

Ah. That's interesting. I think the alternative reason people like it is because "Pit's cute." As that's why I believe my sister looked up clips from the game (I only know what I know of the game from that really) I suppose there are worse reasons for liking something.:)

If I ever do see all of it I'll have to keep an eye out for those plot holes. I suppose part of it is the fourth wall breaks that make it seem lazy and I'd have to agree if that's excessive it makes a narrative lose emotional impact and makes it seem more of a joke. (Also, opposite of you, mythology stuff doesn't appeal to me. I guess I feel there's too much ridiculous stuff that goes on there and it should remain buried)

Yeah, Smash is fun and that eats my time.

yeah, the plot holes are there, maybe I am being too picky about it, or I played through the game so much I noticed them, but there are a lot. Again that's just my opinion, I get yelled at a lot for it since I'm pretty much alone on this, but gosh that writing was awful to me.
A lot of the stuff the characters do is just so dumb and then it leads to MORE trouble which they try to solve by being dumb...and yes, you are right, it REALLY takes away from the story of the game when they do that. Especially since the writing was so schizophrenic you could hardly focus on one point before they ripped you away from it and crammed you into some new plot point. though really, we play a Sakurai game for GAMEPLAY, not to be marveled with a story'

Only characters I REALLY liked from the game had very minor roles. Such as Magnus, Gaol, Chariot Master and the little nameless girl even. They had tons of opportunity to build a rich story with these other characters, but gave it up for poop jokes with Hades...hooray?

You're pretty right about Sakurai games. Heh. If you get yelled at for your opinions then I hope you find better company.

Uhg. I hate it when character's exacerbate the situation. It's not fun to watch.

From what I know I do like the idea of Dark Pit. Though I know people hate him because he's "edgy."

I don't understand why people can't like something but still criticize it???? I mean, obviously I love the game, I just find things I personally feel were wrong with it?

Dark Pit was one of the characters from the game that felt salvageable to me...but people really ignore important things and reduce him to 'ow the edge' simply because of the look, which I do feel is a tad uncreative so when I draw Dark Pit, I tend to give him more colors than black everything.

I don't want to spoil later details about the game, so I won't explain anything about it, but if you stop and think about actions...It just really interests me.
Then again, that could just be me just interpreting things a certain way since the writing left important character stuff like this WIDE open.

People love whining more than constructive criticism I guess.

Nah, do tell your idea about Dark Pit PLZ. Spoilers are no matter here. That's very interesting to hear you try to spice up his look.(I wouldn't be surprised if I know already as I once saw a video about him)

But the thing I like about DP (from what I've seen) is he's not so much an evil double as he is the same person basically who has the same goals but is just more willing to be ruthless in achieving them.

fans are too extreme, you can't criticize something they like without being EEEEEEVILL
Look at my gallery overflowing with Kid Icarus stuff
I obviously like the game
I just don't like aspects of it.


weeeeeell It's kinda long, but if you really want it XD I'll just sum up a few things here? There is more, but these are the important things to think about I guess?
Again this is just how I see these events

Dark Pit isn't so much as more ruthless than Pit, I think it's the other way around. Dark Pit actually kinda THINKS  himself before he acts, where as Pit just does what he is told regardless if a good idea or bad (how so much trouble started was because Pit was sent in without he or Palutena thinking). The few times he questions Palutena about what he's doing and if it's really the right thing, she is quick to say 'I'm right, do as I say'. I think that makes Pit MUCH more dangerous and ruthless than Dark Pit. Someone who doesn't question himself or hesitating before acting. 
Dark Pit IS selfish, sure, but mostly because no one really showed any genuine care about him when he was 'born', so he cared for himself. Not trying to defend any of his actions, since if he just chilled out and talked with people I'm sure things wouldn't have gotten so violent so fast, but still...You be born from a mirror and have a lot of people telling you what to do and see what your first reaction is.
Chapter 6 when you are hunting Dark Pit down, It becomes clear very early in the chapter that Dark Pit is just fleeing from both gods and the war they bring. He want's no part in it. If you get in his way, yeah he's going to stop you, but mostly because BOTH sides are just trying to kill him. Palutena herself, who is supposed to be known for benevolence and kindness just up and 'he's an abomination, kill him Pit' and Pit just shrugs and go 'okay' That's pretty cold and ruthless for the good guys I think? Which won't be the only time Palutena does the 'join me or die' thing.

Dark Pit pretty much came to life and was told he was an unnatural abomination, was wicked and destructive, and then had to live down that he was a flawed copy, never going to be as good as the original. They come up with a name Pittoo to pretty much mock him(while yes, a cute pun on Pit's Japanese name, Pitto, being called Pit two probably isn't flattering) So yeah, he's got some angst in that. Look at Pit when he's told he's not good enough, he gets REALLY upset and fights to kill whoever told him to prove he's good enough. Not much different from Dark Pit really ^^;

There is this 3 year time skip that happens, and when you meet Dark Pit again, he's really grown by small subtle hints. He showed more emotions. In the end scene of one chapter, he genuinely smiles and goes to join the group(where as before he always took off alone), becomes frightened and doesn't hesitate to call out to Pit for help, and then shows remorse after seeing what Pit did to save him. Before all you saw of Dark Pit was anger. Maybe he became comfortable with what he was, or grew on his own to become his own individual.
We still don't know what happened to Dark Pit in that time gap, all we do know is that is the time Dark Pit learned that he and Pit are connected, and if Pit dies, so does he.
Actually there are A LOT of unknown things that is just left out for Dark Pit.
Such as his absence during an alien invasion and what went on in the 3 years that Palutena and Pit's controlled body was used to slaughter humans.

Maybe that's why he and the other characters intrigue me so much. You can fill in the blanks with your own ideas. However, even though it interests me, I wish the writing didn't leave out these characters for the sake of their humor. A few jokes now and then is fine, but they took a gallon pail, and tried to fill it with 10 gallons of jokes, it just overflowed everywhere and made a mess to me.
