I’m Afraid I Can’t do That: Day 74

HAL 9000 Complete

“I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

I love how this turned out! Oh so much. I love how the speaker at the bottom looks, I love the fantastically creepy eye in the center of the page, everything looks perfect. There were a lot of things I was worried about while I was going along, but again… I’m surprised how great everything looks. I’m so happy with it.

I haven’t seen 2001: A Space Odyssey in a couple years, but I plan to watch it this Halloween. I have a cousin that has yet to see it, and we’re planning on doing a movie marathon on Halloween. I think HAL is the only character in the movie that shows any real emotion! Those future humans are so bland and uninteresting. I think that’s just the type of future Stanley Kubrick imagined.

I sure did put a lot of effort into this picture though. My back, my neck, and my wrist areΒ quite sore. It took forever to draw all those tiny little squares at the bottom, not to mention coloring all that black everywhere else.

What should I draw next? Hmmm…. I think I have an idea.
