Haunted skyrail by westykid Haunted skyrail by westykid
A little something i rustled up for an exhibition that's happening at the end of the month C:
I wasn't really sure what to do for it then something i'd read earlier by Donald Miller sparked artytime off. It was something along the lines of "Fear is a manipulative emotion that can trick you into living a boring life", what a great muse for a picture yeah!?

Also, on a little side note in another of his books he pretty much sums up what was going through my head when i made Ursus (which is TOTALLY getting turned into a kids book soon by the way, i'll keep you posted)...

"And so my prayer is that your story will have involved some leaving and some coming home, some summer and some winter, some roses blooming out like children in a play. My hope is your story will be about changing, about getting something beautiful born inside of you about learning to love a woman or a man, about learning to love a child, about moving yourself around water, around mountains, around friends, about learning to love others more than we love ourselves, about learning oneness as a way of understanding God. We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and the resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?

It might be time for you to go. It might be time to change, to shine out.

I want to repeat one word for you:
Leave.

Roll the word around on your tongue for a bit. It is a beautiful word, isn't it? So strong and forceful, the way you have always wanted to be. And you will not be alone. You have never been alone. Don't worry. Everything will still be here when you get back. It is you who will have changed."

BAM!

i really love your inspiration for these type of universes. great color choices as well (=

dang one day, we should gather all artists that have that kind of ideas and rgeat inspirations, and make a huge mashup game that would be so unforgetable we would be the new E3 stars.

well dreaming a bit doesnt hurt hahahaha

I would SO be in to that :D
I've come to a point in my career where what i want to make far outweighs my programming ability, so i think the logical next step would be to collaborate. And there's no reason we can't!

This image is based ever so slightly on a game i thought up on the bus home from work but it's much darker than anything i'd want to do though. It was all about understanding why zombies do the things they do in a touching but gut wrenchingly terrifying way haha. Busses get me down. But after shifting my inspiration I get things back into nevermorian posi-ness :)

hahahah great (=

well i'm not much of a coder but my bf is ..... ah we have that game in mind, but i'd love one day or another to work on small games, kinda more like poems. the idea isnt clear yet, but i'm spending (when i find it haha) some time thinking about it .

nd yeah i'm sure depressive stuff wouldnt suit you ^^ you're too positive and your art is too cute to be depressing hahahaha
tho zombies are quite a nice thing to work on ... hehe

Well see that's the thing, my art is totally an escape for me! I'm super sad most of the time. When I draw it's usually of somewhere i want to go and take everyone else with me. But you're right though, if I ever did anything too dark it would totally ruin what i'm trying to do.

I like the idea of little short poemy games, like just a little experience based on a thought! That would be super rad :)

Let me know if and when you guys have some free time cause i'd love to lend my talents to something like that!
