So I picked up books 1-5 of Alan Moore’s Promethea at the library today, because my cousin’s been recommending them to me since forever and they finally had the first volume on the shelf.  Unfortunately, I’m just not getting into it.  The writing’s okay… pretty cool plot, decent dialogue even if Moore does tend to info dump in big chunks….

But YE GODS do I hate the layouts.  The artist is rendering all the people and objects beautifully, but every page is just so fucking busy.  Weird, dramatic panel layouts on every page, a dynamic pose for every single panel, panel breaks all over the place, jeez.  It’s exhausting to read.  And then the colors seem to have been applied with little regard for creating an overall mood or theme, so that makes things even busier and looks kinda gross.  I don’t think I’m going to finish it, just because I can’t deal with these artistic choices.

moonsrain:

Following a series of brutal seadweller cullings and mutilations, greenblood investiguerilla Willam Graham is brought onto the case by legislacerator Djaack Crafor for his ability to empathize with serial cullers.  Willam immediately suspects this is the work of the same troll who has culled many lowbloods but never been caught, known as The Ripper.  As Willam becomes obsessed with the case, Djaack enlists the aid of psychoterrorist Hanibl Lecter to provide conciliatory support for rapidly unraveling Willam.  Hanibl and Willam quickly grow close, but unbeknownst to Willam, Hanibl is really The Ripper.
Contains conciliatory relationship abuse, pale/black vacillation, gratuitous use of culling as a courtship device, dream sequences of horn warping, quadrant smearing, concealment of caste-irregular mental powers from an officer of Her Imperial Condescension, anti-caste hate speech, 37 murders, and cannibalism.
——-
I drew this based on occupationfic and asukaskerian's discussion about how Hannibal is pretty much a troll romcom.  I've made Hannibal a blueblood just barely verging on indigo, and I imagine he has low-level chucklevooodoos he keeps hidden except for murder purposes because he finds the Church rude and tasteless.  Will's sign is Canis Major, for obvious reasons, and Hannibal's is Orion, The Hunter.

thereisacatch replied to your post:What class did you see ponponpon in and who is the professor????

What the fuck why??? Was there a purpose? Or did he just randomly decide to play it?

He just said that we weren’t awake enough and put the video on.

Drawing for Sequential with Dove.  It was during our break and he just… started playing it?  And then he went back and replayed the parts where she like, farts rainbows and spits eyeballs and stuff.

My sequa teacher is “singing along” to ponponpon but he doesn’t really know the words so he’s just shouting random phrases about toast and it’s truly glorious to behold

Oh my god he showed your class too.  I had never seen the video before and I feel traumatized by the experience.
