A quick color I did of a sketch I drew. XRay is being controlled by the Mad King via the crown.
Now then I drew this right after Episode 1 of Season 2 came out. Now a month later the episode airs where the Mad King is literally manipulating XRay. It's mind blowing how close I was to the truth when I started drawing this show.
Cruel and Cold the Mad King chooses the one with the deepest cracks to pry apart at the seams. Using XRays deepest fears he turns him against the one man who truly does believe in him. The man that would never abandon him. No matter how he hurts Vav his friend would risk anything to save him. Vav may not see it now, but when the time comes, he'll give his life for his friend. And the Mad King will laugh.
