Genius is just one step short of Insanity by chinara Genius is just one step short of Insanity by chinara
I still haven't finished Professor Layton and the Lost Future. In fact, I wasn't able to play any more!

But I did get to the point where I heard of the most awesome thing of all: Evil Layton.

No, I haven't seen him yet. I haven't heard much about him either, just that within those ten years, he turned into that obsessed mad genius who does everything in order to travel through time. That description stuck. Big time.


So, before I continued playing, I just had to draw what I imagined Evil!Layton to be like - and this is what I thought when I heard about him the first time.

I've also done a more detailed background again. Clocks. CLOCKS. This game has too many clocks. But I like it. It's good training.


So yeah! Drawn during my livestream. Enjoy.

I was pretty excited to see the Evil!Layton when they mentioned that he got obsessed with time travel!
Nice design! :D

I would die happy if there were a Evil!Layton vs good Layton sword fight <3

I actually think Evil Layton needs to be brought back! No one appreciates the idea of him much anymore...But I love the way you depict him! Sittin' by the fire, all fly and pimp yo.

Oh yes, I am always a fan of having characters be battling their inner demons and their thoughts. too sad that Layton's evil alternative version was not elaborated on as it was an amazing second line.

I've been tempted to entirely rewrite Unwound/Lost Future so as to continue along the evil!Layton line of plot. But my computer broke down a while back, so I really can't.
Doesn't stop my brain from rushing me idea after idea though. :/

One of those ideas being that the closer Present and Future Layton get to each other physically, the more they begin to act like each other - for example, 'Future' becomes slightly more mellow, calm, and controlled, while 'Present' becomes slightly more angry, obsessive, and violent.
Even though there's no logic behind such happening.

Perhaps I just like the idea of two crazy Laytons running around.

This looks amazing. Although I know nothing about this game or the characters or anything, I love it. The background and the whole scene definently reminds me of something similar I've seen but I can't quite place my finger on what it reminds me of...

If I had any childhood memories of Layton, they'd be thoroughly scarred right now.

Also, more clocks! One can never have too many clocks.

Luckily for you, Professor Layton emerged much later than that time period :P You're saved!

Clocks are nice, they really are. Just not when you have to draw them!

Much later? Is that a crack at my age, madam? :P

You should draw more of them! They can be delightfully beautiful when done nicely.

Oh, a true gentleman such as yours will forgive me for such a poor choice of words, n'est-ce pas? ;P

And disastrously nerve-wrecking when one is terrible at drawing straight lines. Trust me, it was arduous.

Under ordinary circumstances, madam, of course. At my advanced age, however, one's mind starts to go - crazy old men are unpredictable individuals at the best of times. :P

Then considering the significant difficulty involved, you did a fine job of them, particularly the larger one in the upper right. I commend you for facing your fear of the curveless.

But a gentleman never lets age cloud his judgment, especially with a lady ;P

I should, most urgently so, at some point! But for now, they shall remain an object of oddness to me.

But my word, such a wonderful gentleman as you will hardly be a victim of mental illness. ;) It be a crude insult to assume so, even.
