Inktober week 3. The terror continues. Will probably post the last set on Halloween.
Still messing around with a lighter, looser line weight. I’m liking it.
It looks weird to me when I look at the line work by itself. But then I realized that I am used to looking at a physical page that is covered in eraser marks and a mess of blue scribbles. That chaos adds real texture and depth to the page, thought the reader never sees it as I clean it all up digitally before sending it to the colorist. And when I look at this digital work it also has that texture -until I hide the sketch layer and then my brain just goes into freak-out mode. “Holy hell this looks all wrong!”
But when I slap some color on it, it looks right to me. So yay.
This particular piece is not a great example, but I really like how the sketchier lines are allowing my finishes work to maintain more of the energy and gestural nature of the initial sketches. With my physical work I am almost always disappointed by how stiff it gets compared to the page thumbnails.
Note: I’m not saying this line of thinking is exclusive to #GamerGate. Progressives can be reactionary as well. Just look at Bill Maher. Emotion is powerful, and we’re taught at a very young age to ignore it. Especially men. I just want to talk about how engaging with that emotion makes us a bit…

Luigi Death Stare: The Pumpkin ⊟
While I’m thinking about it, Luigi Death Stare is a pretty good costume option! You can just get a store-bought Luigi costume, and glare menacingly across its fake moustache until the cops arrive.
