Author Comments

Switched the previous one up a bit; saved a day. :) Not sure which version looks best though. Thoughts?

I think that I like this version more than the one with the writings being black! You have a cool style of drawing, sketchy and messy, yet neat - every line seems to have its right place. Great illustration of an amazing idea, gave me a chuckle! :D

Cyberdevil responds:

Happy to hear it. :) I think my style was born out of an uncertainty I really have what it takes to make 'professional' art, that's become like a trademark type with time, as the only one I really practiced with... very much related to the program I use for these drawings too though, Flash, as it has only simple brushes and little surplus functionality. It does have the most important thing though: smoothing! :) Thanks again!

All caught up again on your Inktober contributions #1-30 (I guess there's 1 to go?). Some scary monsters, some variations and some free-flowing thoughts from the looks of it :D Good times! To answer your thoughts too on #29 vs #30, I like #30 better, though admittedly it's very subtle. I think think the use of just the yellow and red in the background, vs the black and grey for the rock/weight gives more separation and a cooler contrast :D Really cool organic "noise" too with the random little brushstrokes. Really liking this one :D Great job!

Cyberdevil responds:

Yupp, just one more... and I'm actually not totally done with this one yet. XD It's the one that's been left undone for a couple days now... so hopefully tonight.

Yeah... that pretty much sums it up! Thanks for the opinion too. This one's growing on me the more I look at it too, though going back to the other... the dark text in particular really stands out along with the respective text-reflecting imagery... maybe some hybrid on that, and the more subtle borders would be the ideal for me. :) Thanks for reviewing all of them, sort of, so far, in these dual decalogy batches. :P
