kors k as teranoid
I feel that this sound is quite typical of industrial music.
This IIDX will be the final one for teranoid.
Thanks for all your support!
Video Production Information
Hello, MAYA here.
This is a bit of a wild video (which does go along with this wild song).
I first drew the boy's head without electricity, but it didn't feel right and added it in with additional flashes around it.
I then drew the boy's expression on his face, giving him a sort of wild but sexy look to him.
I was then inspired by tripping contact, copying some images from that. Even before I made this, I felt these songs were related.
I had the most fun drawing the tongue and lips image.
