That's a really amazing thing to hear, and I'm really glad you feel that way! Night Vale has such a unique feel, in part because of its ambiguity, so it's wonderful to hear that my interpretation hits familiar chords. Thank you for your kind words.
Really, really, really love this! I love that you've given this a darker vibe. Cecil always speaks about Night Vale in a cheery voice, but in reality, it probably looks something like this, you know? I love it. You're really talented.
I'm very happy you like this interpretation and I really appreciate you taking the time to comment! I definitely felt the same. It feels like his reports start off very warm and lighthearted and become eerie as he carries on, so it feels a bit like he's offering a sanitised version but he can't stop the dark qualities from bleeding through. If it looks like something like that, I'm honestly really thrilled. Thank you!
Hahah, for me, it was scenery and atmosphere that brought me into Night Vale, which is probably why I ended up drawing something like this; Cecil was an afterthought to fill the space. But I thought a gaunt, plain, face-made-for-radio sort of person would fit this sort of gritty and bleak depiction, and I had a desire to draw a character with many freckles, so I ended up with this sort of thing. I don't know how many ugly Cecils exist out there, but I hope he fills one small niche.
Thank you very much! I'm really glad you like the idea.
Nightvale certainly seems like the kind of place where they're accept an awful lot of whimsy and nonsense as common knowledge, and then find fault with something like the anatomical impossibility of angels. Anything that helps to prove they don't exist.
Hehe, I'm really glad if it comes across like that. The background music of NV is a lot of the atmosphere for me and it always makes me think of really murky, dim imagery and soft glowing light, so I tried to go with something like that.
