If I were you, I'd rather accept flowers from the one in the bottom panel. Trust me, Pinkie Pie may be the Element of Laughter, but sometimes I can find her bubbly attitude and nearly perpetual smiling a little creepy.
As I've mentioned many times over, I deeply love the show Robot and Monster
, it's not like any other show, not like MLP FIM, not like Regular Show, and not like Gravity Falls either.
You already saw my very RnM cartoon crossover picture [link]
Just to let you guys know, Pinkie Pie and Arpa DeFault here are NOT
meeting each other; I just wanted to draw different characters with NO
interaction whatsoever. Much like this one where I drew Robot Default's Crazy Cousin Gizmo and Applejack's cousin Braeburn for the first time [link]
Just another picture I wanted to submit to the
club, and the fact that if you've seen the recent RnM episode "Family Business", you probably somewhat recognize this shot.
Also, just to let you guys know, the background for the bottom panel is the same one I used for my Valentine's Day drawing featuring Keswick from TUFF Puppy and Sierra from Total Drama World Tour. [link]
Okay, for anyone who is an RnM fan and watches the show every week, you probably already have an opinion on Robot's family. I've heard MANY opinions regarding his big brother Gart...
For most of us, we consider the rest of the DeFault family, minus Crazy Cousin Gizmo: cold-hearted, greedy, uptight, indifferent, and above all, uncaring.
Okay, I know his big brother Gart is total jerk, his grandmother is slightly psychotic and tends to whack people with her cane...but what about his mother? Arpa DeFault...
When I saw a previous episode called "The Party", I was quite disgusted how she would act discreet around poor Robot, trying to keep family events secret, even openly calling him 'a disappointment'.
Then when "Family Business" aired, Robot found out he was, again, not invited to another party. And that one scene where he isn't even shown in any of the family portraits...boy, did my heart hurt.
If my mom ever watched this show, she would SO
Out of all RnM episodes out there, "Family Business" was the most powerful of all, teaching lessons about the importance of family no matter what.
For those who saw the episode, our opinions might have slightly changed or have become somewhat mixed in regards to Arpa DeFault.
Maybe she does have a heart after all...
Still, although this was like her third episode in the series so far, she really does play an important role in the entire show itself.
Toward the end of "Family Business", when Robot had to choose between staying loyal to his family or betraying them and destroy their business, during the scene where Arpa, Gart, and Grandma tried one last time to try and win Robot back...
I took a good look at Arpa's face...
What went through my head when I saw her expression as shown here on the bottom panel was:
"Wow, she's beautiful..."
Despite her cold demeanor, she seems to possess a lovely side about her, both outside and (hopefully) in.
She's not like most cartoon moms out there, with the exception that she's a machine. Sure, she's not a perfect mother...but she sure is unique
I just HAD to draw this expression, along with the flower she was holding.
And then compare it to how Pinkie Pie would shower someone with a whole bouquet of flowers...Yeah, my opinion still stands to accept a gift from someone like Arpa.
As I confessed, Arpa DeFault is just
