World that Was Part 7

What enchanting images, what dazzling dreams haunt our mindful meditation? We fly together on – shall I call them wings?

Is it strange to create words for things that exist only in our dreams? Things that seem to have no substance within rough reality.

Yes, wings will do.

We fly on wings, always higher and higher, away from the darkness, the wicked world, towards the light.

Born in deep darkness, hungry for the living light. Is that not surprising?

We fly farther and farther, a spiral towards infinity, towards—

Oh my beautiful brother, are you there? Tell me, my terrific twin, my boldly better half, is it that we fly towards or fly away?

Do we seek to flee the descending darkness or happily hunt for something new?

Is it fear or hope that directs our dreams?

Does it matter?

We seek to escape from. Is there something we escape to?

What exists beyond the light, beyond this world and whatever made it?

Is it better than what is left behind?

Oh my brother, you are wildly wiser than I, who am fueled by feeling, not by foresight.

Is it hope or fear?

Fear – fear and I are familiar friends, perhaps the only companion who has kept me company longer than it has been you, my terrific twin.

Yes, fit and familiar with fear, but what is hope?

What are these words that spark in our mighty minds.

What are they, when all around is the wicked world’s dismal darkness?

Environment 06 for the 30 Days Project. The Market from Monticlaire in Even in Arcadia

I’m behind 🙁 Oh well, not going to deter me from going forward. I’ve learned that failures in deadlines are just as important as successes and I must not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

As such, there will be no day 7 for me. Day 8, here I come.

Kevin Wilson

Day: 6 out of 30
Robot(s): Cutman and Garada K7

Cutbros gotta stick together.

This is a panel from my upcoming webcomic, The Prince of Trinita (www.trinitacomics.com).
I finished flatting it and this character’s expression struck me as youtube poop-ish (If you’re not familiar with Youtube Poop, look it up on Youtube, and try to stand the non-sequiteur insanity that follows).
Anyhoo, enjoy, and I’ll have more amusingness tomorrow!

Reeta Linjama

Birthday of a Knight — Day 5/30 of my knight-themed 30 Days Project with Cloudscape happened to be Donut’s birthday, in honour of which I drew her as a knight. (Thanks for letting me post this and congrats again, 😀 )

She’s always chastising gravity, so obviously Gravity is her steed. Well, I forgot to draw reins on it, but Donut can just point her Starbucks Birthday cake pop to the direction she wants to go and Gravity will follow it. It seems like a hungry horse.

Environment 05 (totally cheating again) – by Anise

This page has so many backgrounds and so much painting for it that it totally counts as environment practice.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

From my comic Even in Arcadia.

World that Was: Part 5

Ama, you are there? I am not alone? Oh praise – should I say “praise God?” Was he what brought you back to me, and thus is virtuous, or did he hide you from me and thus is vile, or did he do both and thus is fickle?

Oh, he plays with us, for he thinks us so little, trapped in the walls of the world, deep in the darkness. But we’ll show him, won’t we, my brother? Yes, we’ll show him that we have strength, that we have power. He created us and our pitiless prison, but we can overcome. We can be free.

He built our base bodies, yes, and our solid cell, and maybe the god of this world has power over them still, but oh my brother, there is one thing he cannot control, and that is our minds. They remain ours.

Sit in the centre, back to back, so our spines touch, so our heads meet.

Clasp your hands in mind, oh my brother, then close your eyes. Think and dream. Dream together. We have clawed at the wide walls, at the solid cell, unless our nails broke and bled. We screamed, we shrieked, until our throats almost split.

Fists cannot free, shrieks cannot save. But maybe our thoughts can rescue us.

Our prison has been prepared, our bodies bound, but God or demon or whatever built this dungeon dark cannot master our minds.

Where fingers failed, thoughts will succeed.

What do you dream of, my brother?

What do you dream? Let us dream it together.

What do you dream? I dream of… dream of….

Oh my brother, what is that that lies before us?

Environment 04 (totally cheating) – by Anise

I worked on this today instead of my illustration for the 30 days project, so I’m submitting it. I love the way it looks, but the bg is killing me.

Raideen knows Raideen likes to party. I loved this one so much I even made a 1024×768 wallpaper of Party Raideen.

I am Kevin Wilson, part cartoonist and part pineapple. My challenge is to bone up on my giant robot skills by drawing one every day for June. That’s 30 robots of the large to super large variety.

Ama?

Ama, are you there?

I cannot feel you. I cannot hear you.

Ama?

Please, speak to me. Do not leave me the demonic darkness.

I dreamed the lovely light into existence, the wide world beyond the wicked walls. Do not say I dreamed you too.

Do not leave me here alone.

AMAAAAAAA!!
