World Lines: Lux Vivendi

By Greybird007
1 Favourite
This was evoked by an artwork described in a fan fiction story, in turn based on the characters of the animated series "Daria."

Jane, shown at right, is the artist, and she is described as creating this painting for Quinn, shown at center, with whom (in this story, not the original series) she has fallen in love. "Lux Vivendi" is meant, in inexact Latin, to signify "light of my life."

The painting is meant to show the progression of their lives as "world lines," signifying Jane, Quinn, Daria (the series' focus, Jane's best friend and Quinn's sister), and many others among Jane's family and friends.

Notes about this piece (link) are available. These include the descriptive portion of the original fan fiction story ("Quinntessence, Part Two" by Deref); links to the full story and to series chapters that precede and follow it; and a key to the significance of the various "world lines."

Created with Paint Shop Pro 5, MS Paint, and the IrfanView graphics utility.

Daria! I miss that show and I feel old when I make references to it and none of my younger friends or co-workers get them and then go, "huh?" when I say it's from Daria. Love the concept you drew from, you executed it incredibly well.
