29. Has the series, music or fandom changed your life in any way? Share even if it’s just as an improvement on your art or writing.
YES! It turned my life upside down. To list every change would be too long, so I pick my favorite thing, because it’s art-related:
I wanted to draw Dethklok members playing their instruments, but I was so disappointed, because it didn’t turned out the way I imagined them, so I forced myself to study hands. :D
Besides of drawing my own hands I watched tons of youtube-videos and photos of guitarists, observing their poses and hand gestures and doodled them…
So I tried to bring all that into my fanart…
… even in stylized form XD
Corrected lots of mistakes in older Metalocalypse fanart of course…
I’ve gone crazy with hand anatomy, copied every drawing from the hand-chapter of Bammes’ book “Die Gestalt des Menschen”, trying to understand how arm muscles work, how the bone structure looks like and all that stuff.
No one can say to me now that drawing fanart is useless (as long as the artist doesn’t stay in his/her comfort zone)! >:D
Less than half an hour until the Doomstar Requiem - time to share secrets and old headcanons!
27. What are your theories on the Falconback project and any other series plot points?
I wrote about that some time ago, but I had a crazy headcanon about the Falconback project once - Crozier builds some kind of satellite-towers all over the world. Then the planets align, the towers draw the energy from the alignment and Dethklok play a “forbidden” song from their destroyed record, which starts the apocalypse. This process destroys and transforms the entire planet into hell, reigned by demons. Metal!\m/
In my mind, the story begins where Toki, after being stabbed in s4ep12, was unconscious and had this weird dream, that he was a king and had to protect his rainbow kingdom with candies and weird animals from Skwisgaar and his army.
And then they had this sword fight, that Toki lost. And in the last moment he saw that Skwisgaar turned into Magnus. Here’s my really messy storyboard:
You see how he’s falling into a “flatline”? I was too lazy to draw it but that dream changes into the scene where you see a ECG monitor showing that his heart stopped beating and then we see a hospital room with Toki being in a coma.
I figured that he might have been saved by the Tribunal from the Revengencers (Abigail plays also a major role here, but it would be too long to write that in detail), so that Selacia can perform his “ritual”. In my headcanon he used Toki’s seems-to-be-dead-body to get back to Dethklok and play the evil apocalypse song. >:D
I always wanted zombies on the show…
And badass Selacia-possesed Toki…
