Who's Psylocke, anyways? But that's interesting... is it a fanfiction piece, as in a website? This should be interesting, especially if it is a picture to go with a story, and I can read and comment or review the story.
So, are you the writer of that story? Interesting: a telepathic slayer; Way better than a psychopathic one- That's for sure! I started reading it on tthfanfic And Fanfiction.Net by the way, and it's quite good from what I have read. Interesting concept: Give Faith mental abilities akin to a Jedi in Star Wars... I kind of like that concept.
I think it's an amazing piece of artwork. I couldn't be happier with the results of my commission. To clear up any confusion this artwork is based on a BTVS/X-Men fusion fanfic where Buffy and Faith are both mutants and Faith has psylocke's powers. So it's actually a psychic blade in the shape of a jackal knife. I just heard back from the author and he was blown away by it.
Thank you, for this wonderful Fuffy image, and thank you for the commission and the link to the "Twisting the Hellmouth" website!
This artwork is so amazing in so many ways. There was an obvious attraction between Buffy and Faith, and had the series been produced recently in the more open LGBT era instead of the late 1990s, it would have been much more open about Faith's deep love for Buffy. Joss Whedon, the creator of BTVS, hinted at it in so many ways during the show. Faith's descent to the Dark Side was basically because she thought Buffy had rejected her, and her Redemption in the final season as a true warrior Slayer and Buffy's ally was because of the love she still felt for Buffy. Eliza Dushku really showed her acting chops in BTVS, and I've read that Joss offered Eliza a spin-off as "Faith (Dark Slayer?)" but she had already signed up for her show, "Tru Calling". Unfortunate, as a Faith spinoff could have really worked.
I like the "Psylocke" touch you've added to this commission, and using the Jackal knife as a psychic blade is brilliant.
