The Rooted Ones / Les Enracinés – WIP 2

EN

Hello ! 

Here’s the next part of our sort-of-a-diptych 🙂

I spent some time trying to figure out a nice way to frame these two small panels together. What’s follow is a placeholder, waiting for my skills to become better at making something… well… better. 😀

I didn’t have great expectations in my ability to build something perfect, so I took this occasion as it was : like an empirical learning experience, involving foamboard, cardboard, cutters, glue, and Gesso…

FR

Bonjour !

Voici la suite de notre espèce de diptyque:)

J’ai passé un peu de temps à essayer de trouver une belle façon d’encadrer ces deux petits panneaux ensemble. Finalement, ce qui suit est un bouche-trou, en attendant que mes compétences s’améliorent pour faire quelque chose… heu… d’amélioré 😀

Je n’avais pas de grandes attentes quant à ma capacité à construire quelque chose de parfait, alors j’ai profité de cette occasion pour en tirer quelques apprentissages, à la bonne vieille méthode empirique, le tout impliquant du carton, des cutters, de la colle, et du Gesso…

The Rooted / Les Enracinés – WIP part 1

EN

Hello!

For a little while now I’ve been trying to enhance this small format drawing, initiated in a previous post.

I used it for coloring experimentations, based on watercolours and acrylic paint and varnish layers.

FR

Bonjour !

Voilà un petit moment que j’essaie de mettre en valeur ce petit format, initié dans un précédent post.

Je l’ai utilisé pour quelques expérimentations de mise en couleur, à base d’aquarelles de peinture acrylique, et de couches de vernis.

B.O.A.R. – Beast Of Anger & Rage

Once upon a time…

…There were these people, guided by an extinguishable will to understand and control Imaginary Lands’s chaos. 

They started to gather bits and scraps of anything, out there, that could be ruled, handled, and manipulated.

[FR]Destruction Créative (2) : Mutations !

[English version]

Re-connexion :

Vacances : terminées 🙁

Retour au travail : assimilé…..

Besoin de tester deux ou trois bidules techniques, loin de toute forme de réseau : satisfait !

Résultat : rien n’en est sorti qui vaille la peine d’être partagé, mais ce fut tout de même un bon apprentissage personnel 🙂

Au cours de ces dernières semaines, j’ai quand même continué à travailler sur le dernier dessin que j’ai posté Destructive Creativity, avec plus de tests de couleurs, de superposition de Gesso, de liant acrylique, et d’autres expériences aléatoires.

Re-connection :

Holidays : terminated 🙁

Back to work : assimilated…

Need to test out technical stuff, away from any form of network : fulfilled.

Result : nothing came out that was worth sharing, but, that was still a good personal learning 🙂

During these last weeks, I’ve still continued working on the last drawing I’ve posted Destructive Creativity, with more color tests, overlay of Gesso, acrylic binder, and other random experiments.

Graphite Artefact : The Rune House / timelapse

See the original post here on Steemit.

RuneHouse.jpg
I won’t be able to write the next part of Wanderings in Imaginary Lands this week : a bit too busy.

Instead, here’s the timelapse of a graphite artifact made these last two days : the « Rune House », abstract graphite drawing on wooden tablet, playing spontaneously with lines and angles and ending with some northern-runic-shaped symbols, hence the title.

The tablet had some previous collage on which I’ve put layer of gesso. I’ve left raw vertical brush strokes, wondering if I could get some sort of « interlaced » effect. Not sure yet if that would work : acrylic blender still drying while I type this 🙂

Have fun and take care of yourselves,people ! 😉

Wandering in Imaginary Lands PART II – Improvised drawings and an improvised story to link them all.

From the Dudes Farm to the Moon House : following Will-to-Evade’s right into troubles.

Hello !

Last time we saw how my unreliable companion, Will-To-Evade, left me alone in Imaginary Lands, right in front of a strange structure freshly appeared from nowhere.

I wasn’t really feeling comfortable while looking at that house… And even less now I realized how high in the skies that thing was standing… That moon symbol should have alerted me.

Imaginary lands always tend to make distance perception a bit sketchy… Goals reveal themselves to be always farther than you’d thought at first glance, and – of course – obstacles a lot closer.

The Moon House was sitting at the top of what seemed to be a much longer and higher pillar than I first thought.

No, really…

I didn’t want to climb that…

Unfortunately, I couldn’t see any way to leave that place without my good old silly Will-to-Evade. It seemed I was programmed like that.

So, finding that little pest was now my top priority. And last time I did see it, it was running down there…

Yes… So far away.

I had to walk some time before reaching the foot of that tower. Each step was making myself a bit more uncomfortable.
That good old ground that was sustaining our last time met twisted trees was now supporting a crazy structure. I could have swore its roots were from a the same kind of our tree friends.

But what kind of madness did take control of its growth ?

Anyways… With that door up there, it looked like it could be an entry to the Moon House.

« Eye(open)« 

What ? Who said that ? I was standing still, petrified.

« Invalid argument« 

The voice sounded mechanical.

That was coming from the structure.

Heart beating hard, I hid observing the insane building and its logic.

A constant flow of passive sitting human dudes was incoming, a few individuals were regularly picked-up by  mechanical claws and then replaced by other dudes.

Screw that Moon House !

I’d never enter that horrific Dudes Farm !

No way !

I’d just have to find Will-To-Evade, and go back home…

Wait… what was that ?

« What are you doing ?! Don’t go there ! »

Will’s blurry silhouette was running right into troubles… And once more I couldn’t prevent myself to follow the same path

I started to run after Will, shouting « Stoop ! »

« eye(Target) »

The mechanical voice was the the last thing I heard before something hit me hard…

A last memory of the whole crazy place faded to black behind my blind eyes.


blinking…

I didn’t really know where I was lying now, but I was feeling some presence. Close.

« Mouth2(smile) » said the mechanical voice

 

Oh, freaky crap !

Back to darkness…

« Eye(Open) », said the mechanical voice.

No, no, no, no ! Not open !

How would that thing say ? « Eye(close) ! » and even : « Eye(close, close, close, and close !) »

« Invalid argument. »

Fuck you ! Back to darkness !

More comfortable !

« Agreed ! » agreed Will- to-Evade, lying next to me.

Finally, we were both reunited, facing the worst thing we’d ever had to flee from.


But… (take your breath)

… that will be… (do you feel the suspens ?)

…for the still unknown, unwritten and mostly not designed next part of this weird story ! 😉


Thanks for reading, folks 🙂

That was some good fun, even if I have met some problems due to bad support choice while drawing. Lesson taught : I’ll know what not to do for the next part.
That said, I must admit that I’m a bit scared by how to handle what’s to come…

Because…
Weirdness is coming !

again.

 

Farewell, and have Fun !
