Although I have no plans to go back to making regular “Damania” comics, I thought that I’d see what one of these comics looked like when they were painted using watercolour pencils. I’ll also post a random picture that I painted a couple of days earlier too.
As usual, this comic and painting are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
As I said earlier, “Damania – Horror Elitism” was basically just an experiment with making one of these comics using watercolour pencils. This comic took a lot longer to produce than I expected, not to mention that Derek is absolutely terribly drawn in the first panel too.
And, yes, for the record – slasher movies are about the most boring, un-scary, predictable, formulaic and just downright generic type of horror movie in existence.
Ironically, most of the genuinely scary horror movies out there are actually modern ones. With a few exceptions (eg: “Event Horizon” and the remake of “House On Haunted Hill” from the 90s), horror really doesn’t age that well.
“Random Forest” was a small painting I painted a few days earlier. It’s ok, but it ended up being kind of generic though.
