Whoa, Cyan overload!!!!

These were all drawn individually, I'm just sweeping up my Cyan doodles and such into one big picture.

--For those who don't know, Cyan is the character I always imagine the player as in the Myst series of computer games.--

I was having fun imagining the relationship between Cyan and Atrus' family. By the time Exile rolls around you're apparently pretty close, and in Revelation Yeesha knows you as a close family friend, sooo...

I kinda stole that star wars joke from 'Reign of Fire,' where movies are gone so the people tell the plots as bed-time stories to the little kids. I've always thought that was a cool idea.

That's :iconfaeliscity: who's made off with Cyan's boots, as she once remarked on how much she liked them and wished she could have them. Poor Cyan...

That "No more blue pages" thing was the original doodle I did of that joke, only here it seems like he's reacting to something specific (like, say, the monkey-chomper on Chanelwood...). I liked his body language here so I thought I'd put it up even though I've already done that joke.

And guys? Yeesha goes NUTS when she grows up. Like, it's not even funny. What the heck happened to her???? Anyway, that bottom-right comic came about after I watched the opening sequence to End of Ages. I was feeling pretty depressed after that. And Yeesha was acting like she didn't know you at all! Though in all fairness it's probably not supposed to be the same person by the time that game comes around, Cyan just happens to be stuck in an eternal time bubble and is actually a lot older than he looks. So this idea gave me a chuckle.

Wait, Cyan traveled with the Doctor????

Okay now you have to draw a comic.

(sorry I keep starting random convos btw you're just so much fun to talk to)

Yes, he did! Well, at least as part of his 'silly canon' ;p Let me pull up some links for you...

This is where it all began: artoveli.deviantart.com/journa…

This is a comic someone else drew: artoveli.deviantart.com/journa…

The last RP going on in the comments of this journal is about the Doctor and Cyan: artoveli.deviantart.com/journa…

Unfortunately, Cyan probably wouldn't have seen StarWars.

It's okay, depending on which canon we're going with for Cyan (silly or serious) he's traveled with the Doctor for a while. ;p

I wonder why/when Atrus let Yeesha get face tattoos. I mean, he doesn't seem like the kind of person who would let his sweet, innocent daughter get tattoos and go all emo. But then again, he did raise Sirrus and Achenar, so I think his parenting skills are questionable.

Yeah, I think I'm with you on that point. Atrus isn't about to win the Nobel Prize for parenting. :XD: Still, I wonder what Catherine had to say about it...

I can see most people still think the main character in Myst V is the same stranger.
The myst story is about 200 years in length and the main character in Myst V is actually Dr. Watson.

The inherent ridiculousness is the entire reason I stuck Cyan in a time bubble. Don't worry, I realize it's not SUPPOSED to be the same Stranger. It just is. In my head.

Lurvely sketches, girl! I ‘specially like the one in the top where Cyan’s telling The Empire Strikes Back to the family, and the bottom one where he’s all freaked out by Lord of the Blue Pages, Mr. Psycho Nutcase Esq. And cute squee is cute!

AH, yes. Yeesha was so much cuter before she partially shaved her head to make room for a tattoo, cut it short and (somehow) turned it a vague shade of red. But not before she got dreadlocks, of course. Can’t be forgetting those.

I rant.

And cornrows. Not a good look for her. And yes, tattoos on the face are NEVER a good idea...

"No more blue pages for you Achenar"

XDDD Oh, that face is priceless. I'm sure this is similar to what my face looked like too when I found that electric tourture chamber o.o;

My goodness, I thought I already scourged your gallery...

I could see the whole Atrus family being entranced by the Star Wars plot. I wonder what they would think of Labyrinth?
Artoveli's avatar
ArtoveliHobbyist General Artist
They both kind of hit close to home, don't they?

Basically I guess. However, Yeesha should know the wonderfulness of the Princess Bride.

Everyone should.

Again, childhood. I remember now. The Friend, spending so much time with me.

More time than Father ever did. I always wonder what became of that Friend.

Here, with your help another bahro is freed. Another Least is released from its chains.
