Greyscaled and then mangled in photoshop, partially inspired by the latest Animatrix cartoon “The Detective”. I think it’s the style I’ll be aiming for for this cages script. Without the colour, obviously, and maybe paired back a bit.

It’ll help if you realise that the on-screen image is about 1/3 bigger than the original and the original was drawn to be reduced to about half. (In case you’re wondering why it’s so blocky).

I think I hit a tiny eureka moment, I think I’ve settled on how I want cages to look – which is most of the battle. It’ll be cartoonesque – but chunky. Lots of black and then greyscaled with one or two tints in photoshop (probably just one). Then I’ll add a bit of noise and voila. Bobs yer uncle. It’ll look different I think to most of the things I’ve done. I like change.
