Another Penguindrum wallpaper!

I saw this scan:
Mawaru Penguindrum#564739

and really liked the pose and the dualism. I love Penguindrum's stylistic art style, and wanted to try making something more abstract/symbolic to the show.

I loved the use of coloured lines in some of the episodes, so I went with that. The black blank faces idea came from Revolutionary Girl Utena actually (which I recently finished watching).

I actually started this idea with the boys turned sideways (see alternate version), because it fits the horizontal orientation of the wallpaper better, and gives good balance. However, I also liked the idea of Kanba being upside down and falling downwards, because of his self-sacrificial nature and his sometimes misguided means to achieve his goals. So I went with that idea instead.

The circular arrow motif is used a lot in the show, and I like the idea of it encircling the boys, like how fate binds them (hence the title).

But I also liked my original design, so I kept it as an alternate version. (the 3 alt versions are the same design, just diff resolutions, I'm not sure if there's a way to do alternate resolutions for alternate versions xD)

    Really liking this one.

    You made great use of the original scan to infuse a dynamic quality to the image with nice clean shapes and lines.

    Well done! I really like this style with the black blank faces. It reminds me of black-figure potteries from ancient Greece. I've been looking for more stuff with this style but it's quite rare.
