Pied Piper by elsevilla Pied Piper by elsevilla
Started drawing this one, yesterday while watching tv, and say that the face looked like my old character, so decided to draw it from memory, man feel like ages since i draw him.

So i open a lullabys book, and started noticing tons of errors, i can believe that people bought this, probaably was the colorist and Mikes milelr great promotion, that made this happen.

To bad people wont see a third book, didnt liked the direction on the second volume, got my arms attached, so i couldnt do what i wanted like volume one, cause was to much violent for the kids.


Not even the people that worked, with me, n even my partner mike, knew this.

Bu the reason the book was called lullaby, was because the thing piper was carrying at his back, he had a deadly song that will kill the entire world, and of course his arm.

Probably you noticed that pipers arm had tons of belts, cause its not his real arm, its a straw arm, was the result after meeting the warlock scarecrow(not human yet) and his mentors death.

So Piper wanted revenge, so he seek for that forbidden item at his back, everytime he plays he dies a little, knowing that he will die by performing the deadly lullaby at his back.

Always protecting himself from love(alice) or friendship(Jim) with sarcasm, at the end of the journey he will have to decide which thing was more important, and he choosed wrong.

The world was goin got be destroyed, so only one character with a living item that eats magic, can stop the lullaby from been sang, now heres when jm enters the scene, but was to much magic, than he actually dies. Unfornatelly thats when the black magic transforms the entire world, bringing terror and horror books merging with fairytale books, and alice and piper kicked out from fantasy world to the real world.

So the second part was going to be Alice tru the mirror.

To bad its something you will never see.

i have never read lullaby but just from hearing you talk about it like that it almost sucked me in i am in love with books and i read a write almost daily and your plot is one of the few i have seen that can take a life of its own and i believe you should continue and finish this series regardless if u show the general public at all or not because it just sounds like it needs to be a finished project for you as well as other people who mite want to see it hun

Oh no! I remember reading the first three up on wowio when I was going to school :cries: I was lamenting how I'd never finish Lullaby and now I don't think I want to O_O Amazing story, I really would have peeked at the end though :)

I bought a copy of the first volume a few years ago, and I just found it again in my closet a week ago. So I looked you up again after all this time. You've regained an old fan. XD

It's a shame Lullaby'll never be finished, but thanks for letting us know what could've been. Reading over the comics again, those unanswered questions make more sense now.

As for the picture itself, I'm loving all the little details in it, from all the belts to the scraps of cloth(?) tearing off into the background.

Sucks... i'd have liked to see this second part... :hmm:
Zocko Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2009  Student Writer
Else, you make me sad :(

I remember buying all your Lullaby comics thinking they were fabulously drawn. The coloring was also amazing, however the dialogue was a bit weak, which I think was the comics only flaw.

Would you consider drawing one or two pages of Lullaby's end? I feel sad when such a beautiful story is left unfinished.

Keep up the good work, as always :)

A MAN!!! I tdon't think I've ever seen a man in your work before....well, I think I'm a little slow on your work, then.

aeontek Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2009
you'll probably hate me for saying this, but i still think that lullaby and that era of your work was the best. even though it had errors, it was very charming and i thought your ideas to be original and unique. the world was so awesome.

i very much miss it and this picture makes me really glad.

thanxs past colors were from ulises, inshield and seed, they were the ones thatmade lullaby great, if you rest the colors the lineart will lookpretty crappy. But i kno what you mean, probably you miss a fun character, havent drawn a fun character since jim at lullaby.

so that's why lullaby ended, i stumbled upon it a while ago and was sad to see there would be no continuation of the series. that's too bad, though i understand why. the piper was my favorite ^_^

nice clean line work, looks great

Very awesome character design!
Nightmaker Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I agree with you lullaby had a lot of failures but i like it because when i first came to your deviantart side you were at the lvl from lullaby.
Next time i see you on deviantart you were on a different lvl you were so much better
In this short time you have made so a gread leap forward

I mean look at you 2007 you weren´t good in coloring but now i personally think you are amazing in coloring.
And this gives me hope that some day with hard work i can also do such a great leap as you

Of course i like lullaby also for the story =D
its really sad that we´ll never see this end D:
but thank you for telling us the end

your welcome :D
surthur Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
x) thanks for sharing the end of the story, really I thought for days "SUCH A BUMMER" that it didnt went done.. I still hoped for it :B

hmm why others bought it, I cant tell, I just feel my fantasy goes very well along with your way to draw, even its not so perfect at that stage in terms of storytelling . I sometimes trap myself in going on in fantasy about my stories , picturing them like you would draw them , and end up frustrated because I cant and dont want to copycat you XD
Imagine it, I publish it through egmont and the entire market says "oh he tries to be second elsevilla, what a bum" .
I think I would end up firing the entire idea of doing comics into the trash XD still, its nice to go back here and let inspiration come along. I think thats why people just like it, its done with <3

InkOnHerLips Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2009
Ah Lullaby, I remember stumbling across that about a year maybe more, ago and that lead me to find your DA page here. I feel in love with your work thanks to Lullaby, it's sad to see that it won't be finished but then again I can understand how some projects just have to be let go.

But still such beautiful work it gives me that old feeling of astonishment I felt when I first saw your work.

Así pasa cuando uno con disciplina va creciendo un poco más cada vez. Tal vez no se note de un día para otro, pero a la larga cuando das el vistazo hacia atrás, te das cuenta de los pasos que avanzaste.

Oh man, it breaks my heart that there won't be any more Lullaby. T_T I really liked your art in it, and I never noticed any errors. I think you are being hard on yourself. Thank you though for telling the rest of the story though, it seems like it would have been so cool!
