Poor Lydio. I keep kind of putting this weird sort of evil vibe on him. It's fascinating, I love it. However... he's not supposed to be?
Though, originally speaking (and still true) it's not like the snake is his - it is actually wrapped around him. So technically it's more like the snake is evil. The colors ended up matching for multiple reasons. Not only because multiple characters favor the black/red color scheme - but because black and red snakes are my personal favorite to illustrate as they were the first and I just kind of kept it up.
Lydio is also, possibly, missing his glasses.
I KEEP DRAWING LYDIO. this is because I keep seeing him, and because he's my newest character that isn't a woman (I have issues drawing other women. it's hilarious) and I'm completely enamored with him. I've actually put most of my valom work on hold - which is highly unusual for me. usually Valom graces my art more often than Alya. Currently Alya is in the lead with Lydio in second and Valom in third! D: hahah
