Rabid Rufus. by MagicRat Rabid Rufus. by MagicRat
Rufus Shinra - man with a mission. And a bird.

Well the camera refuses to show his hair as it really turned out, instead it wants to show him as having ketchup dumped all over his head. It's actually a lot more strawberry-gold than that. I'm gonna change the batteries in my camera and see if that helps. Anyway this is Rufus Shinra as he appears in Rabid Tiger - a redhead with a 'tude and a small purple chocobo. Wooki-woo!

I recently bought Rufus for my desk. I'm amazed you got him to free-stand. It could just be my particular model but my Rufus can't stand on his own because it's like his left foot was molded to stand on the ball with the heel up.

Yeah mine stands just fine. Can you pose his feet? Maybe you can try just adjusting them.

I can twist them but I don't want to see if I can get his left foot to go flat. I'm afraid of breaking him.

It doesn't bother me much. He just stands on my desk.

And probably makes rude remarks. He's such a naughty boy.

On the contrary, I'm usually the one rating about how much I hate him. X3

Love/hate relationship with him, ya know? He's too damn sexy for me.

Camera settings can always be a pain in the ass, hence why I hate doing large scale drawings for that reason; photos never look too great =(

Where on EARTH did you find a Perkle AND in the proper size? O.o

Rufus, you look yummy. You might want to dump the box in a volcano, though...

The Perkle was a gift from Sunstroke-Art, and I used my own art supplies to paint him purple. And rufus says he will after he uses it for some potty-training.

try changing the camera settings for low light.  There should be a setting on your function wheel/menu/whatever that shows either a portrait with a moon or a flame in the corner or just a moon or a flame.  That's 'twilight portrait' settings.

Rufus, that better not be my new toaster you're aiming at!!...and what have you done to yourself now with a bandage on half of your face? Perkle, did you beak Daddy in the eye?
Reply

MagicRat Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014

Perkle: Week?

Rufus: No he did not beak me in the eye! He would never hurt Daddy. I'm afraid I was rather ill there; I was rather heavily inflicted with Jenova-cooties. And of course it is not your new toaster, my lady. It's your microwave.

Oh poor little Perkle!  ::gives him a cookie:: but Rufus, Darling, why **are** you trying to kill my appliances? Why don't you just put the gun and Perkle down, come in the kitchen and have some tea. I didn't know you were exposed to any Jenova-cooties (the cold-hearted bitch...pardon; and damn the person who gave them to you). Those seem to be running rampant through blood-lines around here.

Rufus: Thank you dear lady. Well it is a little known thing (and canon) that after Weapon destroyed my tower, I was pulled out of the wreckage very badly hurt. I was brought to the hospital, and promptly kidnapped, and stashed in a very not-nice cave. I was finally rescued by my Turks, but not before becoming infected with Jenova cells and becoming very ill.

::Pours his tea and giving Perkle another cookie:: While I had the Girls up to the Clinic for a well-baby visit, Dr. Gaywell was talking to me about the things that went on when your "dear" Papa was still alive and poor Dr. Ryu looked so heartbroken. So much so in fact that all 15 of them settled on him and started trying to purr and kiss him at the same time. If Dr. Gaywell hadn't put a chair under him he would have fallen to the floor!
So now that you've become well --or less fragile -- does that mean you'll grow wings as well? It's never very nice when a person we trust sticks us in a cave or some out of the way place. I've seen too many young Creatures turn out nasty from the same treatment. Thank the Goddess that your Turks (who are susceptible to pastry bribery ) found you.
No, Perkle, I don't think you like tea, but here, you may try it..... :sets her cup down for Perkle to drink:

Perkle: Camomile! His favourite!


Rufus: Well my father was dead at this point. No it was a portion of the army that had gone rogue. I'm not really clear on why they did it or what they wanted me for, but they did take me. And I suppose I could grow wings, but not because of the Jenova-cells. You see I accidentally dumped Sephiroth nanites into my scotch...

Not you too, Love! We should be rounding up those stray nanites to give back to Zack before he breaks in half....and how did you end up mix up Sephiroth's nanite solution for your Scotch, you silly Darling? Reeve is going to crap boxes of water crackers if you tell him!!
I have to admit that this part of Space has just as much problems as my own world does but no one should be injecting anyone with things they don't need and yes I've read the whole story about sick Mr. Hojo and such ilk as he. It's like the Tribunal after the Boys but on a whole other level.

Yes, Perkle, you may have some more tea. ::pours him more into a deeper bowl then refills Rufus' cup::

Perkle: YUM!

Rufus: Oh Reeve knows, dear lady. Have you met our baby, Ruskin? Oh, by the way, the rat asked me to pass you this link. I believe it leads to something you commissioned from her. magicrat.deviantart.com/art/FF…
