Airborne by FugueState Airborne by FugueState
An exercise to make me try something "different"... ;-)

The style belongs to the outstanding :iconalptrauma:~Alptrauma, whose wonderfully Burtonian characters inspired me. :worship:

Any mistakes are my own. :-)

Media: graphite pencil, Photoshop gradient

I'm really glad you like it. :aww: And I hope you can get a pose to work for him; I'd love to see it!

(V, try to hold still for alptrauma? Just for a minute?)

Lol, he doesn't like the way I draw him. He says it is too "Suessish". I guess he'd know. But I got the basics for his face, now I am working on the pose. Keep those fingers crossed for me, eh! XD

Aw.... See if you can get Evey on your side. I'm willing to bet, if she likes what you're doing, he'll go with it. ;-)

*keeps fingers crossed* :fingerscrossed:

I could try that approach, but I don't know. When the new Government took over, did they ban Dr. Suess? Maybe she wont know what it is. . . :O_o:

Well, given that she's been in V's company, and *he* knows about Dr. Seuss, I imagine she knows about him as well. ;-)

Besides, she wouldn't necessarily need to know about Seuss to know if she likes the way V looks... ;P

He really looks like he's having the time of his life! There's something about the pose that makes him look carefree. It is weird seeing him so skinny, but it's fun!

(whispers, thank you for the other building. ;) )

I love that line down the cloak. The symmetry line. I love that, and keep focusing there for some reason. I love the boots and the knives, and the fact that you can't see the eyes. :)

Let me know when you find out what's behind it. I'm up for it. :)

(you're welcome. :lol:)

This is going to be one of those odd drawings in terms of figuring out what's happening here. First, and most obvious, it wasn't drawn with a pre-existing story in mind. It might belong to one of them, I don't know yet, but it may very well be its own thing. :shrug:

Just to give you an idea of what was going through my mind when I drew it: I was concentrating on a sense of motion, and speed. This isn't quite Superhero!V, but this is definitely *not* just an ordinary human being, either. In addition, though - and I hope I was able to express this - I think he's having.... fun?

Well I agree with what you just said about it not being Futility. I'm really curious to figure out the airplane thing, and see if that has anything at all to do with it, even if by some weird way. I'm really very curious. I mean, I remember when you did the Anniversary pic, and initially thought it was near the end of the comic (way, way at the beginning of working on it). Then you realized (and I did like your final conclusion, obviously) that it was something entirely different. The riddles to solve. ;)
