Elliot to Nanase by DanShive Elliot to Nanase by DanShive
Super-sized wallpaper variant of a sketchbook from El Goonish Shive? Yes. Yes indeed. Download for 1920x1080

Elliot transforming into Nanase! Whee!

What, you want an explanation for this? Who or what changed Elliot into Nanase's form and why they would do such a thing? Heck, I don't know. Bored aliens? A disgruntled wizard? Cursed character creation menu from a video game? Anything's possible. Take your pick.

All I know for certain is that I've been wanting to draw characters from the comic morphing into other characters from the comic, and for some reason I thought of Elliot and Nanase (from the comic, as opposed to other Elliots and Nanases). How am I supposed to know why my brain does what it does? That guy's crazy.

I like that there's movement in the character's position, etc.  it's more dynamic that way

Not really, Ellen would probably squee and force "her" into a photoshoot with the real Nanase.

I love the sparkles. More magic/transformations in EGS should have sparkles. I also like the way the colors are slowly shifting in images 2 & 3, and I like the pose in panel 4.

First thought: Try to summon Fox. If this proves that Eliot has Nanase's ultra amazing magical skill....go on a spell-casting spree until someone finds a solution or it wears off.

Heh, well with his new abilities it is entirely possible that something just caused them to go haywire or his headspace caused them to react weirdly as they have before, though that could lead so some weird/awkward sitcommy situations if it actually happened in the comic itself...

Curse intended for Nanase, but constant flux of tg in moperville confuses caster into hitting Elliot instead.

Isn't this like, totally possible with Elliot's own powers? It's not in his character to do this, considering the angst he showed over turning into Grace, but I don't see why he couldn't do this to himself.

Actuly, I think Elliot let his magic build up and was thinking of nanase when he had to transform.

Knowing Elliot, his transformation wouldn't be so spot on... Something would be different from the normal Nanase. Dunno, maybe a larger chest, longer hair, Nanase with a more Elliot face... Something is always different.

True, true. He'd need some of that mysterious TeddSparkle for that.

Sparkles? Huh, usually EGS transformations are more glowy.

Also, while there are obvious changes all over the body, that certain color change patch makes it look like the transformation started off in a oddly appropriate part of the body for a TG.

Better explanation, an alternate universe where Elliot and Nanase stayed together after she discovered his(and/or her) alternate identities.

As an engagement gift, Tedd gave them clone forms of each other. He forget to tell them that when one changes, both change.

Hmm. At the fourth picture there, Elliot seems almost jolted by something. More internal changes than external ones causing a shock?
