Here is my very first Jazza challenge submission. I went with the Bulgy-eyed murderer and set him in the Green Clean Park floating in space with the alien race. The murderer's weapon of choice for the snail-like alien is a canister of salt which he used to poison the fountain water. To see the steps I took to get here follow the link:



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Salting the slug-aliens is definitely the most unorthodox way to approach the bulging eye murderer theme that I've seen so far.

Not sure if grayscaling was a deliberate choice, but I feel like this kind of cartoony piece would benefit a lot from using living colors.

Good job anyway m8.

Thanks for the feedback and the complement man! This is my best work so far and yes the salting the slug-alien is a bit odd lol. I wonder if the Morton salt pose my villain is in is at all noticeable. I definitely see your point about the color as I had considered that aspect myself. I would like to play around with painting it at some point to see what it does, but feel the b&w gives it a bit more mystery than I could probably pull off using color. I grew up enjoying the old b&w Alfred Hitchcock films and feel they would loose a lot their intrigue and mystery were they shot in color. It is cartoony, but a diabolical murder mystery unfolding too, so this is my Dr. Seuss meets Alfred Hitchcock haha. All in all the b&w was intentional, but I may one day get around to re-posting it in color. Again thanks for the feedback and complement!
