This is my collab entry with =BlissfullySarcastic for the official Past vs Present vs Future emote competition.
=BlissfullySarcastic and i have been meaning to collab again for over a year, and this contest finally gave us the motivation to make another joint emote. As the contest requires 3 scenes, we decided to pixel one each, then do a joint scene for the central one.
We chose to use the theme of 'communication through the ages'. In the past, people corresponded through letters; in the modern day its often IMs or Skype and in the future we decided to pixel a hologram.
I was painting with blue cloth one (No.1) with purple background first, but didn't feel quit right, so I went with this one (No.3). thanks for everyone who helped(vote) me to chose the coloring on the cloth!
6/24, 2010> woooooooooooooo!!! I made it to Semi-final!! I am soooo honored!!! I would be extreamly happy if I could get in the final, but this is already enough prize to me. thank you all who are supporting me THANK YOU!!!
One day where the realms of instict and reason clash, the kings of each land meet once more for their annual "what will we do with the human brain" discussion. Tired of many years of clashing and battling, they agreed that from there on, the game of dice they both liked would decide the outcome of every situation a human should encounter.
From all the dreams that I have, I decided to go with the biggest dream I want it fulfilled, since it's the dream that is the sum of all my dreams.
Being old.. happy.. healthy.. with good knees
To be an old lady with no regrets.. To be an old lady whose all dreams where fulfilled.. To be an old happy lady who knew she did the best in everything she wanted to do even though sometimes the result were not as expected.. To be an old healthy lady who can go up and down the stairs without stopping midway.. To be an old healthy lady with long strong grey hair..
To be an old happy healthy lady with the heart of a child in her is my ultimate dream..
When my life comes to an end.. I want to be happy!
Don't we all? ________________________________________ __
About the artwork:
I spent the last 5 days working on this drawing.. The background drove me over the edge for so many countless hours.. I even cried from it sometimes..
Thanks to my best friend who takes care of my sanity at night and thanks to my mum who is always my biggest support!
The second floor in the drawing is not used, it contains the rooms of my children [considering that old lady is me ] who have their homes now.. I put the chair for the old lady to draw coz it has the best view and the best lighting ever! So don't go asking me "isn't the chair blocking the way?"
The old lady reminds me a lot of Ghibli's obaa-sans
