Betwixt and Between by Altalamatox Betwixt and Between by Altalamatox
Pausing my shapeshifters between their human and otherwise forms!

None of this is canon. Most of these guys have little or no control over their transformations, exceptions being Ben, who could do something like this in his younger years, and Morgan, naturally.

Morgan, Master Shapeshifter Extraordinaire, likes to have a private chuckle over the rest of these folks who presume to call themselves shapechangers, with their measly dual forms. Terrible showoff, Morgan. This here is possibly not beyond him, but it'd take all day to figure it out and then he'd be perfectly incapable of moving in any dignified way.

Blah blah blah, Discord, yes, yes. I was briefly veeery interested in MLP just for Discord, who has a legitimately kickass design, then I watched some of the show and it's just really not my thing. Morgan and Discord would be bffs, though. Heaven help us all.

Oh, and Duncan is not exactly a shapeshifter, he just snuck in here because I like drawing him with a person face. C:

Duncan's in that stage all my characters seem to go through, where he just shows up in spews for a couple years. This is the best explanation I have up of him, at the end of this spew. fav.me/d4vg67r

You know that would make a hilarious story for Cornelius (but not according to him). Stuck in between and he's got this very, very, very, important political meeting/rally to attend to! Whatever shall he do? ;)

SPRINT WILDLY to his doctor's for a shot of this drug that inhibits shapeshifting!

If not that, I'd imagine he'd tough it out for the important meeting. Everyone there would be petrified trying not to stare at or acknowledge his even-more-unusual-than-usual body.

Ah, I meant control it like this, holding these sorts of in-between shapes. You're right, Cornelius can changes between his two shapes when he likes, Nicole should be able to do the same but has a very hard time doing so.

Ahahaha Morgan, it isn't enough that you transformed yourself into such a thing, but you also had to adopt a deity-esque pose. Of course! XD

Ugh I think Duncan is the biggest cutie in the world. His person face is perfect. Perfect. I want to sit on his lap and get a four-limbed dragon hug. Hhhhh <3

Yes, someone's ego is showing... He'd argue that he pretty much fits the god or at least demi-god bill, and maybe I'll give him that. He'd definitely be at home among tricksters gods, Loki and Coyote and such. 

Aw! Duncan would probably burn much of his time as a person snuggling, hugs aren't something he's normally very well-designed for. SO GIT 'IM I SAY.

I feel overly tempted to throw Morgan off a cliff and scream "BE FREE! FLY... flightless... ew." What a sight. ;_;
In all seriousness, these are beautiful drawings, and the way you balance and fuse all these body parts together is pretty remarkable. I'll be having wonderfully wonky dreams now. c':

I love how you meld your characters' human and animal forms so seamlessly here. =D Cornelius still manages to look every inch the posh gentleman despite being half fish monster (though I don't know if I want to know how he sleeps at night with all those fins and spines sticking everywhere X'D).

I really like how muscular and tough Nicole looks. Being the only girl on this page, she still manages to look suitably badass and intimidating. =D (Why is she wearing a mailman's hat, though?)

Eric has easily become my favorite of your characters, and I adore his poses and expressions in both his sketches. :heart: He's like "Dude! I'm actually THIN for once! Whooo!" XDDD Also, his tail: :iconsofluffyplz:

Who is Duncan? I don't remember ever seeing him before.

(Also Morgan looks like some kind of demented cherubim. O__O)

:iconaltalamatox:
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013
Why, thank you!

I think Cornelius' spines are really pretty flexible, and either way he doesn't have much feeling in them if any, so he kinda just lays flat on them when he's asleep. The ones on his arms are more annoying, since they're all joined up to his skeleton and don't take being crushed very happily. Honestly, he should just- and did for a while and sometimes still does- sleep suspended underwater. But then he couldn't snuggle with his fiancee. Easy decision, there!

Nicole represents! In a physical brawl she could definitely kick the trash out almost all my characters, male or female.

Glad you like Eric! He's one of my favorites as well. (:

Duncan is a very large, very lazy dragon, usually. He's only shown up here and there in spews, I'm still kind of settling on his appearance. We'll see more of him someday!

My first thought upon seeing Morgan's transmutation: "Well. That's ungodly."

I'm sure he's very proud. XD


What a MARVELOUS showcase of your dudes' forms, though! 8D It's a lovely little exercise, and I can imagine quite the brain stretcher!

Morgan, dear, it's common practice not to puff oneself up too much. The biggest bubbles are the quickest to pop, after all. Thank goodness Magda's there to keep you from getting too full of yourself, or your head would soon exceed the size of all the rest of you, no matter what shape you took. XD

Though I am curious:
Which would Cornelius rather be? A full otherwise form? Or this strange mix between his human self and it?

Strange mix of human self and it! By far. Having a human face and being a more reasonable size would make him very happeh. But we can't have that now, can we. :)
