The shape of dibs left leg near the knee is off and the back pack is floating a bit on dib's back. I like the shading its done well although a bit off in some places and the clothing that zim wears fits him well. The face shape for both of them are very good, and there isn't an excessive amount of clothing folds and creases which is good. the right wrist of zim needs a little smoothing over, Its extremely cute and I like it a lot. I see this kind of situation a lot though. so it doesn't have as much originality as I see in other things.
it's intentional in my headcanon, zim's a sort-of hermaphrodite (he was genetically altered before he was hatched) and he starts from canon, in-series zim only to evolve into hive!queen zim over the years
i can understand if you dislike it, but i'm not sorry XD
he's not really female in this version mmmh... how to explain in a short version... XD irkens in my headcanon are all males (including tak, tenn and all others) taking different gender roles (like.. tak or tenn or whoever with curly antennae) the antennae thing is a fashion thing, much like a perm. back in the ancient, irken times, their society was like that of a hive, with a god-queen as their ruler (see: ant / bee queen) over time, it became much more efficient to just clone strong males and render females obsolete (that's when the tallest and control brains took over) one scientist, however, decided it's time to return to the good old times, so he MADE zim. he put whatever leftover scraps of female genes into him (which.. really weren't all that much) and hatched him. things happen, former tallest miyuki being a douche, yadda yadda spoilers, zim's pak was messed with so he doesn't recognize that he's different from "normal" irkens in the way that he inherits about... dunno... 10-20% female traits in an 80-90% male form. it's mostly his insides, which have hive!queen equipment, meaning he'll pop out smeets like no tomorrow. he also mellows out quite a lot once he discovers his true identity and purpose. he's.. hmmmm... irkens in general are pansexual (meaning they don't give a f*ck what they f*ck) and while all are fully physically male, they have alien genitalia, which could be considered hermaphroditic (sheathable inside peen to keep in or use actively 8D ) a friend told me i might as well call it "genderfluid pansexual" because, really... irkens don't mind whether they'll hook up with alien males or females (IF they go looking outside of their own species) zim's.... well, the womb bit aside, he's the same. (he also still refers to himsels as "he", even while he doesn't mind being called "mother" or "queen") once he learns what his purpose and new position is, he's one smooth mofo.
Okay I am going to go ahead and say it, you are my favourite ZaDR artist & writer by far. Your work is stunningly beautiful, and I will honestly never stop getting blown away whenever you upload. I really adore the way you draw them both, and how the line art is very soft and delicate, it makes the whole moment seem that bit more cute and meaningful.
