Now THAT is much more what I was going for. I don't know if I'm 100% satisfied with this page, but I'm satisfied enough to leave it as is. Sorry for the lack of a new page, but I couldn't let this page stand as it was. And just to give you some idea of how drawing works, I spent something like 3 to 4 hours figuring out the bottom half of this page would work. I was supremely displeased with the more "cartoony" brain imagery, but I didn't really know where I DID want to go. So I did several sketches and doodles and settled on this - a much more realistic take on things.
Playing with the human form is something I've always liked to do. The simple change in a man's flesh is both a visual and a symbolical perversion. Look at the creatures in Silent Hill. Many of them aren't all that far off of a regular human body, but they're so NOT natural because of that. So when I finally started doodling just ripping Kaji's head in half and leaving nothing there, it just FIT. After all, this is a physical metaphor for a mental concept. The magiks don't destroy the body, they consume the mind, leaving their host a mess.
In theory, new page on Wednesday. Thank you for your patience guys, we're getting there!
