--Inktober 31st-- I...couldn't do it. I tried, but...no.
There was only ever going to be one crewmember who would fall onto today's word of "slice," one that I'd picked out way back at the beginning of the month for this list. A Lost Lighter whose most memorable, defining moment was when he was vertically sliced in two by Pharma (solely to give his ex-friend Ratchet a task to prove his superior medical skills). The image was obvious. Over the course of this week, though, while running through scenes in my head to seek out for drawing references, I found that my fondest memory of Ambulon--today's mark--was a photo taken of him and his colleagues, Ratchet and First Aid, a photo given to First Aid as a gift when he was leaving the ship. The way First Aid seemed to treasure it showed how difficult his colleague's death was for him.
So that's what I went with. Nothing fancy, really: just a vertically-oriented take on the horizontal photo depicted in the scene. I much prefer that toothy grin over the extremely visceral image of him being sliced in half, but maybe that's just me.
