Rachel and Tobias (Animorphs) by suburbantimewaster Rachel and Tobias (Animorphs) by suburbantimewaster
Update: Changed the outfit Tobias wears.

I was inspired by some attempts to bring the Animorphs series into comic book form that I see on deviantart and decided to use manga creator to make my own attempt.  This is supposed to be the scene in The Illusion when Tobias tries to leave the dance in order to demorph to hawk, but Rachel won't let him.  Rachel wants Tobias to become a human nothlit because she's tired of having to be a teenage warrior and wants one normal thing in her life.  Tobias still wants to keep his morphing powers in order to be useful for the Animorphs.

I do get that Rachel and Marco have more chemistry and, if it weren't for the war, they would've ended up together, but Rachel has a far more interesting love story with Tobias.  One finding the warrior within her and being afraid of it while the other's trapped as a hawk and succumbs to the animal instinct while still keeping his human self-awareness.  Rachel and Tobias are star-crossed lovers and Rachel's desire to trap Tobias in human form may come across as selfish but, instead of making her a horrible person, it makes her human.

Oh, and I wasn't sure what shade of blonde Tobias's hair was supposed to be and, as for Rachel's hair color, it was the closest I could get to golden blonde.

I think Rachel and Tobias's theme song would be, How Can I Not Love You by Joy Enriquez

Its pretty complicated, he's older than her, he used to be married to her mom and they both go off to fight separate wars in France to put it simply, then she marries a gypsy in order to save her life but he dies so they get back together and get married but then Regina's curse rips them apart

That does sound complicated.

Came across this a little while back and it's been stuck in my mind ever since. If the world can have more Animorphs art then the better. Well done.

Thank you, but it wasn't art so much as a dollmaker. I have a Facebook page about making Animorphs a movie and I also have an Animorphs group, if you're interested.

Intersting... I've been pursuing the idea of making Animorphs a cinematic possibility since 7th grade. I've adapted the books into a working trilogy with the chronicles acting as a standing prequel too with concept art, a director's notebook, production design, and a soundtrack blueprint.

I love this book! They make a great couple :love: I could write a lot about why! Marco and Rachel however, just wouldn't have lasted.

I like how you've designed them, though I think Rachel is a bit taller than Tobias :)

Thank you!  There was always something about Rachel and Tobias that drew me to them more than Jake and Cassie, or Marco and Rachel.  Maybe it was the star-crossed nature of their relationship.  I'd love to hear your list of reasons for why you love them.

Dollmaker, I have to work with what they give me.

Yeah, they always seem to make females oddly short in those things.

They just developed and fit so well with each other! :love: Apart from both loving flying and being very emotional people, Rachel (strong, passionate, protective) kept Tobias sane, while Tobias (gentle, thoughtful, caring) kept Rachel good.

Either that, or they make the males oddly tall.

Yeah, they compliment each other well.

Don't answer that question mate. It'll only end badly for you.

Thanks for the comment.  Not sure if you're an Animorphs fan or if you happened to find the "artwork", but I do appreciate it.
