homestuck challenge day 4 by Yoccuri homestuck challenge day 4 by Yoccuri
Day 4: Your favorite page(s)

Short explanation: EMOTIONS ARE COOL AND I LIKE THEM

Long explanation: I didnít even KNOW much about Homestuck before June, which is when I started reading it. I powered through the whole thing in less than a week (foregoing having an actual life), and so I got this whole Gamzee arc in one fell swoop!

They were my favorite pages not because Gamzeeís descent into madness was necessarily the most artful representation of such a thing, but because Karkat was scared shitless.

Before that, the whole thing was really fun to me, and light-hearted! Itís written so that all of the potential tragedy was passed over with hyperbolic lightheartedness, or just averted totally by Weird Plot Shit.

But here, there was, like, actual god damn terror. I guess I liked how completely Karkat shifted from his normal batshit raging self and into just pleading and fear. And as a result I was just going OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT the whole time too.

So those are my favorite pages :)

ART STUFF:
So this was a fun challenge in drawing scared shitless hahaha I think my style worked out a little better with this one? BUT MAN I suck at lighting from an actual definitive source :| I did the best I could sob
And backgrounds are for losers and I am not a loser I am a winner and I don't draw backgrounds THE END. Seriously try to ignore the background :|

edit because this is supposed to be flipped! idk why it matters but I decided it does >_>

This is hands down, my all time favourite part of this story. So many emotions!!! I read it in the middle of the night with all the lights off, and I was scared out of my mind. I think I might have cried. (for kk, but still). I think one of the things that makes it so scary is how scared Karkat is. When Karkat is behaving that out of character, you've got to wonder what the world is coming too. I was scared to go to sleep that night, lol. Kept imaginging psycho clowns with horns trying to break into my room.

Aha, this was my favorite part too, for that exact same reason! It was so nice seeing Karkat show some real goddamned fear, and I think because of that suddenly the whole Gamzee thing got that much more legitimately terrifying. Anyway this is great XD

And man, the pap and shushing and then their embrace was the best thing I ever did see.

ah, this is right when Gamzee was talking to him about having gone crazy, when Karkat was writing that memo? The blood is Kanaya's since he you know had that corpse smooch combo x2 xD I figure she was pretty bloody and he probably got some on him :o

:iconariaasacura:
AriaAsacura Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011
Oh well I assumed this was when we all thought he'd killed Gamzee (still haven't been told otherwise mind you) so.. maybe when he did corpse-smooch... i guess???
