it must just be the colours
in brilliant pepka-chrome.
i tried to slow down my sketching process. making it more deliberate gave me the kind of detail and feeling that's in this one and not in the first one. i didn't take the shortcut of using the same colours i did in the first. i sampled new colours for everything.
i used the first as a bit of a touchstone - what i liked and what i didn't allowed me to make one that i like better. i coloured it in the time i took me to listen all the way through "moon pix."
i listened to a lot of cannibal corpse to-day too. not necessarily germane, but whatever.
what is germane is that the braves have been on a ridiculously-intolerable nine game losing streak. i felt like if i could remake the cat power piece, it would let us score some runs.
