Early ventriloquists and their dummies.
Why, no, nothing creepy about ventriloquists at ALL.
I will steadfastly defend clowns to the day I die.
Ventriloquist dummies, however, are fricking creepy as hell.
Ain’t gonna lie that is some creepy right there…
you gOTTA DRAW THE LINE SOMEWHERE. YOU GOTTA DRAW THE FUCKING LINE IN THE SAND DUDE.
YOU GOTTA MAKE A STATEMENT. YOU GOTTA LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF AND SAY,”WHAT AM I WILLING TO PUT UP WITH TODAY?”
NOT FUCKING THIS
Have you seen him cook? It’s an entire performance.
#also this is it: this is the proof that we are Hannibal’s dinner guests #a banquet of human flesh cooked into even the wine itself #fed to unsuspecting fools prone to watching the melodrama of perfectly-trained voices and melodramatic performance #Hannibal’s existence is an opera #one sad impossible story after another #crafted into violence and tragedy - retold again and again in high fashion #he life is narrated by Mozart’s Requiem and it seems hilarious and overwrought but it never seems truly ridiculous #they could narrate with Faust - give him the devil’s lines - and it would not seem ridiculous #because Hannibal as a character is an uncomfortable European import who doesn’t quite fit into our society #but who people like to think that they have cultivated and befriended and understood #and shelved as an achievement #(see: Franklin’s behavior) #and because Hannibal as a story is all vainglorious performance and emotional manipulation and luxurious retellings and meta-jokes#and blood that arcs high and true and red #Hannibal is an opera #and we are the audience who devours his works #at a long square table #sitting across from people we will not ever truly know #We are the audience and we are the meat #We are the consumers and we are the art (neverfeedthesarcophagi)
Some pretty interesting fighting poses to look at, for those interested in some references. :)

More warmups, this time with an OFF prompt. This is a scene from early in the game!
I mostly used this as an excuse to dick around with lettering and colors. Drawing comics to warm up for comics seems kinda funny to me, but it also gets me super pumped to work!
((Ehhhh, I’ll put this here, too. Made for the OFF drawing prompt blog—fun stuff! I might do more of these.
Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot. I’m working on a big project that’s going to eat up my time for the next two or so weeks. I’ll try and sneak in an update here and there, though! And there’s a giveaway planned for shortly after that, so your wait won’t be in vain.))
