Ratchet and Talwyn by Lurking-Leanne Ratchet and Talwyn by Lurking-Leanne
Talk about original title! :lol:

Told you guys the next couple I'll draw would be innocent!

I've never drawn this couple before, and this is only my second try at drawing Talwyn. Ever. I figured it would be nice to draw Ratchet again so I went with this idea :meow: bet you guys weren't expecting this!

Out of all the girls Ratchet has encountered in the series so far, I really do think Talwyn is his best 'match'. Especially after reading the comic series. Seriously, I'm shocked at how very FEW fans have read the comics. Shame on you if you haven't.
Although I see Ratchet & Talwyn more as very close friends than a 'serious' romantic couple. I still believe Ratchet's not mature enough for a real relationship... yet. And he's too busy anyway :XD:
So I came up with this drawing them them. They're supposed to be chatting inside the Apogee Station, but I didn't have good reference so it probably looks random.

Just so you guys know, I don't mind Sasha and Angela with Ratchet too! Sasha & Ratchet were together for a while, yes, but their different lifestyles and Sasha's maturity shows that they really couldn't stay together for long. And I think Angela is a bit out of Ratchet's age range ^^;
So yeah, it's no big deal to me who Ratchet is paired up with
okay, as long as it isn't slash/yaoi crap or a mary-sue then I'm cool with it XD

Scanner did a terrible job capturing the colours too, as usual >_< Ratchet's colours look a lot better on paper.

Can't wait to draw the next couple though :giggle:

I don't see them as a couple either, but as really close friends like you said. I think Ratchet considers her family. They're like adopted siblings where Talwyne is the older sister and Ratchet the younger brother. :) 

Ratchet's face is so perfect in this picture. :D

Thanks. I actually already know what was said about their relationship on the 10th anniversary panel, where that originated from. I just like to think about them this way instead.

Thanks! yeah I dont mind if some fans ship them as a couple or just as friends. I'm fine with either, and I'm not all that fussed about pairings anyways xD but it's at least one I'm cool with.

Thanks again for the feedback too ^^

It wont work, it just says "Sorry, you do not have permission to submit artwork to this group." when I try to :S But you should be able to 'suggest' it though? Since you're the creator of the group :confused:

Well that's your opinion. If you don't like the pair (even as friends) or the official, canon based comics, then please don't comment.

Thanks.

Oh, but it is true! She made fun of him because he could not read Lombax font, and she is just snotty to him. He only got emotional about Clank whin he thought he had to stay at the Great Clock. So out of all the people in the games Clank would make the best friend! That's why it called 'Ratchet and Clank'. XD

So you're saying that Ratchet isn't allowed any other close friends, at all? And your reasons for hating Talwyn are rather weak.
I do not tolerate rude comments on any of my pictures, so just leave it at that, okay? ;-)

NO, not at all! XD Clank is just a terrific example of a close friend, and Talwyn isn't. That's all! :) No hard feelings. :D

I REALLY like the expression on Ratchet's face, it's very well done. You can see that loving, appreciative smile. Talwyn looks more awkward though in her eyes and mouth, but it's nothing that can't be improved, right?

Awwwww, this is really cute. ^.^ You have improved on Talwyn and Ratchet since you last drew them. :D

They look really cute together here, although I'm more of a SashaxRatchet fan, but Talwyn IS Ratchet's canon girlfriend anyway. I don't mind! Heh. ^.^

Very well done, so brightly colored, I really like that background. Very adorable drawing.

I do like SashaXRatchet together, although they didn't work out in canon unfortunately :( but they're still cute!

And thanks a lot ^^

I gotta say, I really liked the way you drew Ratchet here. The way you drew his pose and expression makes him pretty believable here. Talwyn does look great here too, but there's something about here that makes her feel a bit off. Though like you said, you don't draw Talwyn that much.

Once again, awesome work with the details and I completely agree with you... scanners make traditional work look quite terrible.

Heroes never have time for girlfriends. At least for Ratchet, he's not ready yet but he will be soon lol.
I do think Talwyn is pretty great though. I agree with her being a match for him. I couldn't see him with Angela or Sasha, even though I love those gals as well. Anyway, very beautiful work, the traditional colors are great! Can't wait to see the next couple. :)

Yeah. Even though I'm not obsessed with Ratchet pairings, I still dislike it how Insomniac always pushes the supporting female characters aside after one or two games :noes: I mean, what's up with that? I reckon she's a good character.

I was a bit worried with her look in my style. Due to the lack of practise with markazians/humans XD
