Took the Stars From My Eyes by Capricious-Spider Took the Stars From My Eyes by Capricious-Spider
Okay, so I've been delving deeper and deeper into Gorillaz-lore; a bit pathetic really, when you think that I got into them just after they decided they were done. OTL That's the story of my life; develop interests in things years (months, in this case) after they've gone out of style. Like Ren and Stimpy. And Beavis and Butthead. And Futurama. Bah.

Okay, so I'm still trying to brush up my technique with drawing 2-D (my obvious favourite) while waiting for my sister to be un-grounded so we can actually work on a collaboration. xD -mostly being facetious- And I noticed a lack of 2-D actually looking hurt. And I don't know why he would ever want to kiss Murdoc. Ever. That's a serious stretch, even by yaoi standards. Of course, it's all messed up if it has my favourite character in it. xD

So this is 2-D right after Murdoc hit him with his car. I was gonna draw, like, keyboards strewn about, but decided I was too lazy. I put a dinky little shirt on 2D that kinda... I dunno, details where he was a the time of the accident. 2D wears nice, simple little shirts and I wouldn't put it past him to wear a shirt of similar stature.

Okay. xD I realized AFTER I drew both accidents that there's a video on Youtube where it shows a slideshow of how 2-D lost his... face. Eyes. Whatever. It also shows his outfits. Y'know what? Screw it. xD

Okay, so I was GONNA draw him with his eyes barely open, but I'm still confused/frustrated as to exactly what's wrong with his eyes. Half the sites say he has hyphema in his eyes, other sites say he has 8-ball fractures, some sites say his eyes were knocked back into his head and THEN in the iTunes interview, Mudz and 'D say that his eyes came right OUT of his sockets. Ergo... I'm a bit befuddled. And this isn't a place for debate. You'd think they know the difference between hyphema and 8-ball fractures. I mean, I guess they're the same thing, but also different? Again, not a place of debate. I suppose his eyes SHOULD be filled with blood, but then again... -tears hair out- SO, to solve my dilemma, I decided to just have his eyes closed; after all, he went catatonic immediately upon impact, or so I've read. I also doodled blood in other places that could've been affected if, y'know, you get hit by a car. By the way, it's hard to see, but there's a monster of a bruise on his eye. Hmm... I'm not quite sure which eye was knocked out, it doesn't specify. I just picked one.

Oh, and there's a looming shadow of Murdoc. It's on a separate layer, so it can be easily removed if someone mentions that they don't like it. I guess maybe he could've known that he would've gotten busted anyway and the shirt gave 'D away...? -shrug- Whatev's.

I used Phase 1 2D since this was pre-Phase I. He was young. xD I can hardly imagine losing one of my eyes, like, tomorrow. Then again, I've always wanted to be blind... -ponder ponder-

Real quick, concerning the ground. I figured it'd make sense if it was carpet material, but looking at it now, it looks kinda like sand. I just picked an ugly, generic colour for carpet even though I'd expect a keyboard emporium to have a quirky, like... conservative and pretty dinky little carpet pattern. Like, black with red, blue, and green polka dots. Like the type of carpet you see in movie theatres.

I drew this in 2012 either just before or just after the release of "Do Your Thing" when they announced they were going on hiatus so it's understandable that I thought they were done, at least temporarily xD

Thanks for the compliment on the art, though~

I'm pretty sure hyphema and 8-ball fractures mean the same thing. His eyes are both hyphema/8-ball fractured AND pushed back into his head. But they are definately in there, because he can see and read. I think Murdoc was just exaggerating when he said he knocked his eyes out, and not litterally meaning knocked out of his head.

I LOVE THEIR RELATIONSHIP.

Murdoc: Oh look it's our singer, 2-D. OI LOSER. *throws can* He's a lovely little fellow.

Murdoc's just so EVIL, and 2-D's just so totally...sweet. ALL THE TIME. He's so IMPOSSIBLY ADORKABLE. And I cannot possibly describe how much I love that both of 'D's eyes were lost/punched in/ruined BY MURDOC'S DRIVING.

I LOVE MURDOOOOOCCC

And you need to watch a video called "Gorillaz: Journey to Plastic Beach". It talks about how Mudz got 2-D to go to Plastic Beach... 2-D didn't want to start up a second fling with the band, so Murdoc stuck a tube in through his apartment's mail slot, gassed 2-D out, and then crammed him in a suitcase to take with him. LOL it's magic in its purest form, dude

And then in the iTunes session, 2D suddenly got all snide and cocky, calling Mudz an idiot and making fun of his singing and job prior to finding 2D. xD

Yeah, the 2D indent was pretty funny. xD Woke up in a suitcase, on plastic beach, only to be held captive underwater by Murdoc who paid a whale to watch him to make sure he didn't escape.

Oh, loads of stuff. xD He started a whole bunch of bands, kidnapped Russel, knocked both 2-D's eyes out, cheated on 2-D's girlfriend with her, ALL this stuff. I'm telling you, you need to LOOK IT UP. xD Like, right now and listen to it while you're checking stuff.
