Hey guys :)

Kaej and Pheyd have undergone a bit of a revamp after a hiatus of sorts.... I dreamed their new designs up, and Ty loved them, so yeeee! She doesn't know it, but this was a psuedo-christmas gift for her. Unfortunately you can't redesign collabed babies all on your own, so yeah... not really a surprise anymore... but anyway ~////~

There are several very on-purpose nuances in their new designs, and I'm gonna prattle on about them to keep myself from getting the jitters! WOO

Most importantly, they're now officially androgynous, genderless beings; kind of akin to the idea of genderless deities/angels. They also have about equal length hair now, though it flows in different directions and each has a different quirk.

:bulletyellow: Kaej is tall and blocky, and is always wearing makeup and jewelry. Kaej's large wings- representing responsibility- are bound by chains. Kaej tends to have a glittering, light-like aura about them.
Kaej is very sensitive and tender, and prone to crying at just about anything.

:bulletblack: Pheyd is small and nimble, and never wears any makeup, and only a few select cresent-shaped bangles. Pheyd's limbs/hair/robes tend to fade out, and their small charcoal wings represent freedom, and the feathers always fade away as they fall out.
Pheyd is very blunt and quick-tempered, and tends to do things irresponsibly.

The placement of all the flowers, background moons, banners, etc- also have plenty of meanings, but I suppose I'll leave something for you to speculate on. *though it's probably really obvious pfff*

Oh and, I was especially inspired by art nouveau, though I guess it's a given. :blush: I'd really love to do more like it in the future.

This will be my last post for the holidays, as I will be extra busy with a certain special someone this Christmas. If you follow my tumblr, you might see some photos of our ridiculous escapades.
I'm picking her up in 5 hours wooowheeahhh.
Trying not to think about it. :faint:


Thank you in advance for the comments, favorites, and watches! :love:

Happy holidays, everyone! :heart: :holly:

I'm fine with you using them as bookmarks, as long as you don't sell them to anyone. If any of your friends ask about them just direct them to this deviation! :)

Ah, Art nouveau! This style is instantly recognizable and also almost iconic. At the same time with every new interpretation, it renews itself, because the lines of Mucha are one of a kind. Art nouveau in the way of Mucha gets its force also by the inherent symbolism. It is good to get into as many styles as possible, because it will make you versatile and make you able to avoid walking the downtrodden ways, ending up copying yourself. Keep up your journey. 良いクリスマスをお過ごしください。(Have a Merry Christmas)

I love the balance and difference between these two characters, between the colors, arrangement of the pieces from the hair, ribbons, wings, etc and even that while one character is more masculine and one more feminine, the gender of the characters continues to be neutral. You two work really well together coming up with ideas and I can't wait to see what else ya'll come up with. BUT on the same note, have a lot of fun together (like you need to be told to do that lol) and enjoy ya'lls time together.

Happy holidays, hun ^.^

Thank you! :excited: I'm really happy the balance and androgyny are reading so well, I'm really proud of this piece. I can't wait to see what we think up next, to be quite honest! :eager:

Thank you so much, we had a total blast! I hope your holidays were nice too! :heart: :love: :heart:

Aaand, another time when I'm so excited that I don't know what to do with my hands.


These are the daily problems of a huge, fangirl-ish spaz.

OMG Children of Pathos! They're so beautiful! I love the new idea you have have for the series, and the androgynous idea fits it extremely well, as it shows that gender does not matter. Keep of the fantastic work, can't wait to see what's next!

Ai-Bee Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeahhh! Happy to be poking at them again! :love: I'm reeeally happy with the redesign to androgyny too, since honestly, they were only given genders to hide our relationship, and kaej's gender changed between masculine female and male too often, so I just thought we should stop it at the source.

Thank you so much!
