interesting places in india

sooooooo…….

my original idea for their, or maybe specifically india’s color scheme was the one on the left. them both just lookin’ all twinsies, ‘cept for india’s eye, basically

but then i had the idea for the one on the right and i kind of love it, but i’m not super sure. on the one hand, it would make a lot more sense why she wasn’t really living the life she used to, and i can imagine the sequence where she’d become like that, and it looks super cool in my head.

on the other hand though, it’s kind of extreme… she definitely still goes out to buy groceries and run errands etc, lampblack is weird but that might be pushing it just a little. most importantly though i’m worried she looks too much like a toon, and i don’t want that. i mean, i love toons, don’t we all, but what sorta makes india interesting in the first place is that she’s not one. will it tempt me to let her be more toony as a result of her “condition”? despite it all, she’s very human. and that definition stretching is a big part of her character, but i’m worried being b&w like that stretches it too much. i never meant for india to have any toony qualities, just… inky ones. and, obviously, she & godwin are less recognizable as brother & sister, and she creates less of an impression on the overall look of the, uh, team.

but dang… it sure is fun.

 so i did the one in the middle, but it seems kinda… pointless either way. like what does it matter if you can barely tell? would it even be worth it to take away a little pigment if it’s not striking? she can’t really embrace the grayness but she doesn’t get to keep her nice colors either.

i mean, obviously, i’m not going to do much in color anyway. kinda the whole point is that i’m going to keep things black and white for the most part, it’s called lampblack city after all not rainbow…town. but still, help me out here y’all. thoughts??

GEORGE: THE FRIENDLIEST BEATLE

THE SECOND IN A SERIES OF PROFILES IN WHICH TONY BARROW EXPLAINS WHAT THE BEATLES WERE REALLY LIKE

George always got along well with the ladies. He was known for it within the Beatles’ circle. When the Beatles did a television special involving dancers, George would steam in there like a shot to chat up the best-looking showgirls, two or three at a time. They said he was cheeky, had a smashing smile and stared deep into their eyes.

Other people had very different views. Some thought George was the shy Beatle, the one who said very little. He frowned a lot on stage, giving fans a false impression that he was being temperamental. He wasn’t really in a bad mood, just trying hard to hear if his guitar sounded right through the loudspeakers.

Not only was George the Beatle who changed most during the lifespan of the group, he was the one who was seen totally differently by different people. To some he was serious, studious and sometimes sulky. Others saw him as a pleasant, chummy and cheerful lad. Others would say he was far too deep for them. In a way, everyone was right and he was all of these things and more. George wasn’t a simple person to assess, even once you got to know him, but the one characteristic which never changed was his fundamental sincerity. George genuinely believed in what he said and did.

“What do u want- A brother or a sister?“

A pregnant mother asked her daughter, “What do u want- A brother or a sister?“

Daughter:- Brother

Mother:- Like whom?

Daughter:- Like RAVAN

Mother:- What the hell are you saying? Are you out of your mind?

Daughter:- Why not Mom? He left all his Royalship &
Kingdom, all because his sister was disrespected.
Even after picking up his enemy’s wife, he didn’t ever touch her. Why wouldn’t I want to have a brother like him?
What would I do with a brother like Ram who left his pregnant wife after listening to a “Dhobi” though his wife always stood by his side like a shadow? After giving “Agni Pareeksha” & suffering 14 years of exile.
Mom, you being a wife & sister to someone, until when will you keep on asking for a “RAM” as your son???

Mother was in tears.

Moral:- No one in the world is good or bad. Its just an interpretation about someone. Change Ur perception
