Apparently the last time I watched SRMTHFG! I started brainstorming and doodling tons and tons of things for the S5 that will never come, because this is ANOTHER sketch that I found in the huge pile of papers I dug through and scanned the other day - I liked it enough to throw some pretty colors on it, despite my tablet's attempts to thwart me yet again. I think I wanted Nova to play a super-big role in the 5th Season; I sketched a LOT of concept things were she was the focus (this is an idea that I still really like, especially since rewatching the 3rd Season finale), and I wrote down a lot of dialogue and plot-things around the doodles that were important.
This is one of the few that didn't
have any notes around it. It was wedged up in a corner by itself with a lot of angry scribbles, and I have faulty fish memory so I don't even have the vaguest idea as to what I was thinking when I drew Nova curiously greeting this floaty orb thingy (a power source, or an alien entity maybe??). It did start the gears churning, though. And for some unfuckingbelievable reason I have this awful thought of redemption for a certain orange bigot, hence the color choice.In hindsight, this could also look like a Fire of Hate thing?? If I'd changed her expression grabbed off of Sprx's color pallet instead of Chiro's/Mandarin's. ' 3'
