White Swan, Black Swan by Wickfield White Swan, Black Swan by Wickfield
Is it bad that I wanted to stay home and COLOR instead of go out and vote? XD Well I made myself go and thus have done my civil duty, haha.

Anyway, I felt like coloring something in yesterday and so I dragged out the same sketch that produced this horrendous lineart: [link] . I'm definitely glad I scrapped that because this turned out far better (I'm finding I'm better at vexelling things that don't have lineart ;) ) .

As I said in the scrap description, I drew Dee Dee as the white swan (Odette) and Lalavava as the black swan (Odile) from Swan Lake. Traditionally the role is played by the same actress, but to stop the rivalry I think Dee Dee and Lala's teacher would have probably just cast them both. ;)

Textures from ~caminopalmero and ~masterjinn

"Black Swan" meets "Dexter's Laboratory" = Genius. You captured the art style perfectly.

Seeing this made me remember how much I loved this episode in particular.
Yes!

What was weird was when I watched the episode with Olga again several years later, it was actually different than I remembered - I thought Dexter was in love with Olga for some reason...must have made that up in my head?!

Anyway I'm glad you liked it!

This is just perfect. c:

I was kind of disappointed that Dee Dee and Lalavava became friends at the end of the episode though. :\

I'm just gonna say it: Maybe it's just me, but Olga in her first and only episode looked rather boyish for a girl. And if that's true, that could be where the idea for their parents to dress her brother up like a girl and call him Susan originated.

TBH, in the first two seasons I don't think the creators really gave much thought to Mandark's family life - if anything it seemed he was just from a regular suburban family, like Dexter (like if you compare his house in the original and revamped series you can see the lifestyle difference), so I doubt they had any reason for making Olga look boyish other than so she'd look unattractive, like Dexter and Mandark, since the whole hippy storyline wasn't in play yet. Although I do agree she seemed tougher than Mandark. :evillaugh:

So much potential could have spurred on from Lalavava's presence, I feel - alas, she joins the one-shot ranks of many before her...

Comparing to the original lineart, I am astounded by the colours and textures you've used here. Really, really cool, in short :D

Wickfield Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm glad you like it - I definitely think it's way better than the lineart. XD

And yeah, Dexter's Lab had a lot of great one-shot characters - I also really like Soyen Chen from the episode "School Girl Crushed." I wonder if Mandark was originally supposed to be a one-shot villain? Hmm...

reg; Mandark, that would have been a mercy if they had just ended with the "Ego Trip" movie. The last two seasons that followed, they just ran Mandark into the ground along with all the rest.... :P


Mind you, I DID enjoy "Sun, Surf and Science" purely that it breaks away from the Dexter Vs. Mandark thing completely, even for a short time.

TBH, I agree with you there. Even though I love Mandark and the rest, I would have been fine if they'd ended with "Last But Not Beast," which seemed to tie up everything nicely (Mandark even got to think he'd won, for once). In the second series, it was almost like the writers tried too hard to be funny, and the whole "Mandark is a evil" thing did get old (I actually preferred his old lab to his supervillain lab, for instance). And "Sun, Surf and Science" was before Ego Trip which was probably why it was such a good episode.

Thank you! Haha, I guess I am the teacher sort of - though I couldn't imagine having both of these girls in my class. ;)

I actually based their clothes off the actual ballet costumes, like in this pic: [link]
