Twisted tale by Kir Talmage

Twisted tale
by Kir Talmage

Prompt: Twisted tale
prompted by: Julie Rabischung, during Sketch Fest #98 (May 2018)

WIP ink pen on paper. What should I do with the background? Black? Lines like etching, woodcut? Vertical lines? Crosshatch? Please advise!


Deborah J. Brannon says: Gothic wallpaper! ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: As a background?! Yukes, how? Got any favorite references? *puzzles, ponders*
     Deborah J. Brannon replied to this: Here are a few samples that might work: vines, decorative floral, and skulls. The last two are super complicated, but they could inspired a simpler design!

Julie Rabischung says: Love your idea 😀 Thank you so much for choosing my prompt ! ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Glady! (she belatedly replies)

Kir Talmage says: p.s. does this happen to you: draw while half-at-most watching a show... and when you see the drawing, the show comes back to you? But you might not have remembered otherwise. (This one sparks early episodes of the Flash on Netflix, which littlerKid was watching last night) ~ Reply?

mikka says: Woodcut background! Also, argh, can't read the whole story. :-P ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Oh but you can! It's _Paul Clifford_ by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, and available through Gutenberg: The first line from Chapter 1 is a classic (perhaps thanks to Snoopy and Charles M Schultz). (Of the story, I mean, not the tone-setting poem excerpt.) The last line I had to look up, though... I haven't read the novel, though! Also, I did give it a background of lines... which apparently I haven't scanned yet... *adds to to-do list*
