Because I love the relationship between Nepeta and Equius, I still find it odd they get shipped. There's no need to ship these two. Their Moirail status is perfect BECAUSE it's a purely platonic friendship. Equius has his problems but because Nepeta balances him out and keeps him calmed, and they're both close friends because of which is what makes me like them. It's a perfect example of Moirails in action.
I may not know much of Homestuck, but let me just say I swear your realistic like shading is improving more and more each time you draw something out! In fact so good I almost took it as a traditional painting drawing. Plus the vain, my gosh even though you did just a few veins it really made me impressed and looked very real to me while seeing it, not to mention that the light source is just perfect and sets the mood just right for this piece. Great job Hubbe!
