One thing at a time by lily-fox One thing at a time by lily-fox
More Night Vale stuff! Carlos sits Cecil down for a full-scale exam For Science, starting with that lovely (alleged) third eye.

Even I think my Carlos is hot, but then, I have a terrific weakness for dark-haired dudes going gray at the temples.

I recycled my octopus from the last drawing. I worked really hard on it, and also, I'm lazy.

Carlos kind of reminds me of Bruce Banner from the Avengers.

So far that's been the most common interpretation of Carlos: like a Hispanic Bruce Banner. I dig it!

Aw, this is adorable! Great job! Also, do you know where the third-eye mythology comes from?

I have no idea! I'd be curious to know who was the first person to suggest that he had a third eye, or tattoos, or had Eldritch tentacles.

I really love how comfortably and casually you draw poses. Cecil looks so natural and relaxed (if tickled pink at being the target of Carlos/SCIENCE), and Carlos's position respective to him is great as well!

Also, your Carlos is gorgeous. ♥

Thank you! Ha ha, I don't sketch out poses often enough, so I feel like it looks kind of haphazard most of the time. It's nice when it turns out looking natural!

CECIL"S EXPRESSION. omg. He's just like, "I don't know what you're looking for or why it's so scientifically interesting, but don't stop stroking my hair, you lovely man" aaaahhh. They're both so hopeless. <3

So, here's a disco confession for you: I have a pretty serious kink for being gently medically examined. I picture Cecil keepin' it together at first, but as soon as Carlos starts tenderly prodding, he just melts into gooey, relaxed ecstasy. Imagine the noise Homer Simpson makes before enjoying a donut.

Haha! I am imagining that, but in Cecil's voice. That was a very apt example. ^^
I know what you mean, too. It doesn't help that the few times I've had to strip down to be gently medically examined it's been by a hot male doctor who could totally be a Carlos...

I love how Cecil never hides the fact that he's crazy about Carlos. It's all out there, just waitin' for Carlos to pick it up. Poor Carlos, in a fog of Science...

What if Carlos thinks it's a tattoo, and then it blinks at him? I'd love to see what would happen XD

How come Cecil is so often depicted with a third eye? Is it mentioned somewhere in the series?

You really nailed Carlos' perfect hair as I think. Exactly as I imagine it. x)

:iconlily-fox:
lily-fox Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013
It's not, actually! As far as I know, Cecil is given no descriptors at all, and I think it's on purpose. Any common themes in Cecil's appearance is pure fan invention, which I think is really cool. Fans decided that maybe Cecil has a third eye, or a lot of tattoos that move and change, or maybe he has tentacles that show themselves at whim. He can be literally anything.

Tulpen-Teufel Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
There is a glimps at his clothes in EP 19, when he compares himself to that other radio host, a tie for example. xD
But yeah, I think it's pretty cool, too. :D
But the tentacles weird me out. Why do fans always put tentacle on everything sooner or later? D:

"He can be literaly anything."
What a scary yet amusing thought. xD

lily-fox Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013
Well, yeah, and the First Date episode, with the tunic and "furry pants", however you want to imagine that. But otherwise, go nuts.

Well, I think in the case of Night Vale the tentacles are probably an ode to H.P. Lovecraft.

I can't decide if Carlos is totally oblivious to Cecil's love for him yet, or if they've already hooked up and he's just really scientifically engrossed at the moment.
