haa bumped into this bit of my late comic blog in my files and thought I could post it here since i guess it’s relatable for many a tumblr-folk…? hopefully the translation’s not too ridiculous it was surprisingly difficult to translate finnish sentences into english even though they’re so simple ´-`
holy fuck. who stepped into my brain zone.

i was going to draw something darker but it seems like i’m not able to do that anymore haha..ha….
Goretober: 11. Skewered
Just a quick doodle of Dante
i don’t think skewered means the same as impaled but mm whatever
This is how I distinguish gore, guro and eroguro. Obviously I’m not an expert on the subject and this is just how the meanings have formed in my head from looking at art and reading some stuff. If you have anything to add or correct feel free to do that.
Gore: = Graphic violence, more graphic, bloody and violent (think about splatter films and certain kind of horror/shock/slasher movies) for more basic information search graphic violence from Wikipedia
Guro: = Grotesque (not referring to Ancient Roman art) bizarre, hideous and/or repulsive but not necessarily gory (drawings can include such things as vomit, bruises, mild body horror etc.) (guro is a bit hard to describe i admit), the most inclusive term, does not have to be sexual (which is why eroguro is more like a subcategory imo), can include or exclude gore e.g. I wouldn’t tag a drawing that has just an amputated limb with “gore” but i may tag it with “guro” depending on the context, for better understanding search for the meanings of the word grotesque
Eroguro: = Erotic+grotesque, often describes bizarre, violent or hideous sexual acts, doesn’t necessarily contain gore, not the same as guro imo tho some people seem to shorten eroguro as guro, an older movement (1920’s?), the only term that is sexually loaded imo, a good example would be Suehiro Maruo’s manga, warning: before looking them up please understand that they contain graphic sexual violence (including rape) and can be very upsetting to many

Hope you like it, even if the background and gore could have been better.
