IF ANYONE SAYS YOU’RE NOT BEAUTIFUL. I WANT YOU TO MELT THEIR FACE CLEAN OFF.
This is Karkat’s fantasy.
A showcase of the six pieces of track art that accompany my songs on Homestuck Volume 9!
Crystalmethequins - art by the matchless Richard Gung
Jane Dargason - art by the beautiful Dawn Davis
Austin Atlantis - art by the inimitable Tynic
Lancer - art by the expert Clorinspats
Princess of Helium - art by the alluring Tavia Morra
Requited - art by the renowned Dodostad
The ancients have called it… Crystalmethequins.
Let me tell you of this song’s origins, for I saw it unfold with mine own eyes.
After our South by Southwest showcase concert, Astro Kid and I both found ourselves back at his apartment. Still in our stage costumes we opened our cans of Dr. B and casually sat around his bedroom. Computers were turned on, subwoofers were turned up. And so it began that we started remixing.
Nearly two months later we sat in the back of a van amongst instruments and gear on our way to play another concert, this time at a Houston anime convention. Computers were turned on, headphones were turned up. It was here that Crystalmethequins, begun so many weeks earlier, was finally completed.
After deciding that the track art would not be a hastily photoshopped image of troll Bryan Cranston, I came to someone I trusted. Richard Gung is unarguably the master, and his track art was well worth the cost he took from me in that dark alley.
The song was chosen from among its peers to open Volume 9. There it stands proudly to this day.
A nice neat photoset of my Volume 9 contributions, because who doesn’t like a photoset? For more info on these pictures check out my Homestuck Volume 9 Contributions post.
This was a lot of fun to do. I was simply given the instructions to draw a dance party with Roxy and exiles and I pretty much went wild and got some fun results!
Volume 9 is pretty sweet and I love every single track adjadjk.
Excellent job music team!
Oh god, this is amazing!
