I know I said I was done with these banners, but I've become strangely obsessed with them and couldn't resist taking a stab at one or two more.  Below the cut, Miriam Kennedy Corliss wants to show you something.








Banner #9:
Kennedy

Notes:
Ken's arc in Clocks is all about revolution, power dynamics, privilege, betrayal and, of course, "what evil tastes like" (kinda chalky).  I tried to layer in some textures that referenced these ideas.  I went with a sort of late 70's, cluttered punk-poster sensibility, mixing scribbles, stamps, pastels and gouache, along with Warhol's painting of Mao, an old propaganda image of Stalin and the blueprints for a nuke.

This one is still kinda rough, so I might revisit it later on and take another whack at composition.



All banners to date:

Like Your other banners, this one is beautiful.

Though, i do have to object the use of defenders as symbols of upheaval and revolution. ;-)

Maybe a nice imperialist would do?




(just tongue in cheek - the use of Mao and Stalin is very 70s like)

Hahah, very good!

Although, since Mistress Kennedy is a hero of The People, I wouldn't want to infect her shrine with images of Western Running Dogs. It's bad enough that she is named after one!

Also I would like to take this opportunity to point out that you have an uneven number of banners. May I suggest

Riley?
Faith?
Ethan?
The Widow?
Nancy?
Drusilla?

These are just ideas. :D:D

An uneven number? Well, that's odd! I guess I'll have to count them again. And again. And again. And again.

I don't know if I want to get into doing OCs and whatnot, but if I did Nancy, maybe you could find a good pic of (whatsername) for a base? It is hard to google (whatsername) without actually remembering her name.

I just now saw this! Damn LJ. Sorry I didn't jump on it, but obviously you were equal to the task. I mean, jeez. Your Nancy banner is amazing.
