If there is a phrase that could explain this image in a nutshell, it's: "that's one tough girl". This image shows what Krystal should be seen as, and not what most fans currently see of her. Krystal is a unique, yet complex Nintendo character, and is underestimated all the time both by fans, and sometimes even by game companies themselves. This image clearly shows how powerful she actually is, and she is anything but an average girl. There were obvious reasons why Fox chose her as his girlfriend/fiancée/wife, and unlike the beliefs of many, looks aren't exactly the sole reason why I believe he made that choice. Her perseverance, bravery, inner and external strength, and compassion are qualities that should be more explored by both fans and "cannon designers", and if it depends on designers like glitcher, we'll easily transmit this idea.
As for the image itself, the effects, background, and lighting are flawless, and Krystal on the CloudRunner looks amazing! There really isn't any other way to say how awesome this deviation came out; give yourself a pat on the back! We'd love to see more drawings like this in the Starfox fandom.
