Alright, I'll make this babbys first artdome entry.

I have a stupid scene in my head that needs to get out.

Calling this one American Cybergothic



Linocut print using oil ink on mulberry paper. Sorry for the photo instead of a scan -- it's very much not dry in the least, so a scanner is a no-go.

Well, you wouldn't want to run wet ink through a scanner! All that ink would be lost, like tears in rain. It needs time to dry.

There's no big enough!

Oh wow -- thank you! I really appreciate the kind words and feedback, esp. when all the other entries kicked absolute rear end. It feels great to hear when I land on something others liked.

That said... I now realize I pretty much cheated, even though I didn't mean to. Hell, void_serfer actually said that using Blade Runner was a "cheat code." It just happened that the phrase "American Cybergothic" popped into my head as I was browsing the thread and welp.

Anyway, the rules clearly say no fanart, and what I put up is definitely fanart. That's on me and my failure to read the OP fully, so I'll happily give this one up if the judge/mods wants me to and do better next time.

I'm glad that y'all were understanding of my screwup

Tempted for the new prompt as well, I'd just need to think of something that wouldn't result in an "it's a car " outcome.

Edit: do any of you participate in the Discord group Art goons’ art dome challenges as well? Or is that an entirely separate affair? I may pop back and forth in both.

I almost entirely lurk in the Discord but thought about joining the artdome there. The turnaround there feels quicker though, and since I work in linocut only it's tough for me to align inspiration and time to cut and print. My entry here was kind of a rush job in itself, only accomplished because I had a weekend completely empty of other stuff.

But yeah, if I were any good in other mediums, I'd probably give the Discord 'domes a shot. The themes are fun in both places.
