Seeing Eye to Eye by Lyiba-MoonEyes Seeing Eye to Eye by Lyiba-MoonEyes
I've noticed my aversion for coloring pictures over the past months,and it bothered and perplexed me. I could sketch and ink easily, but when it came to coloring, my muse would lock up. So I took the time (in between homework and commissions) to do a quick little thing over the weekend to get my coloring muse back in shape.

Along with my outrageous neglect of Tara on the internet, I've also completely failed to introduce Rio in any way, shape, or form :P He's been featured in two other works (The Fundae and the Size Chart) but I never really explained him, have I?

Basically, the idea was Tara needing a companion of sorts, as she's a very people sick girl and I felt bad for conceiving her without a partner. But I just can't think up any old friend-friend for Tara-- I have to do it with STYLE :iconbadassplz:

Rio's initial concept was taking all of Tara's physical and personal aspects and using their complete opposites as Rio's base character design.

I expect you all won't like him much when I finally get a bio/portrait up for him...


Anyway

He actually looks really cool, and the coloring is quite well done.

Also, I LOVE that "STYLE" smiley.

It's impossible not to love this XD. Her pose and climbing up him like that with that huge grin just perfectly works together...along with Rio's reaction to it haha. He definitely did seem a bit on the big side for a predator back on the size chart you did but now it really strikes in seeing her claw her way up him here- damn he is a biggun!

This is adorable! xD You've definitely got their contrasting personalities across here.

But whoa, I've just realized Rio is pretty huge for a standard giant neko, for Tara to be able to climb up him in that kittenesque fashion - about a third taller than your average giant predator. o.O

Oh yes :meow: Rio is a big boy XD Since Tara is unusually short or a full sized giant pred (even as an adult she'll just barely reach the 100ft mark) Rio is exceptionally large.

I'm really glad someone caught that! ;) :cookie:

Tara isn't that small, is she? - in fact I think she's slightly above average at her estimated age :p (Since it says on the wiki that pantaurs are smaller than other giant predators, and the giant predator "average" is 100ft.) Hiral's only 97ft at full-grown size.

But Rio is huge like whoah. Is there a specific reason for that? Or do we have to wait until the bio is uploaded to find out? :XD:

Not in particular, really. I just thought of him as being that randomly tall guy.

Imagine a group of people with their average height being around 5'2"--6'. About average, right? (at least, normal for an American like me, anyway :p ) At that scale, Rio would probably fall in the 6'7"--6' 11" range.

In short, a possible height. Just rare. And freakishly huge :XD:

Ah, yep, you're probably right. I suppose I just notice it more here because he's a big giant already. No fair. :XD:

"Rio's initial concept was taking all of Tara's physical and personal aspects and using their complete opposites as Rio's base character design. "

All he's missing is a full beard.

Very cute pic, for a giant predator Tara almost seems like a silly house cat here.
