Alchemist and Sphinx. just a little story by mariposa-nocturna Alchemist and Sphinx. just a little story by mariposa-nocturna
Long time no see!! How are you doing my fellow deviantartists? :heart:

Here is the story I made during the inktober challenge of this year. I inked with a Gpen and I colored it on photoshop.
It was really fun even though this style of inking made me crazy XD
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Or if you want you can check all the inktobers individually on my other webstites.
Love!

Estelle

Je suis resté scotchée, l'histoire, l'ambiance m'ont vraiment touchée ;_; . Si un jour tu en écris plus... Là je meurs d'envie de me prendre un tirage mais je n'arrive pas à choisir! lol Pour moi l'Alchimiste tente de faire revivre un amour perdu (je penche pour cette option) ou de créer un idéal via son art. Les plantes qui semblent s'emparer de lui, je les vois comme une métaphore du désespoir/du poids de l'irréalisable, de la tentation de tout laisser tomber. Le petit Sphinx, c'est certainement une de ses premières expériences, qu'il garde près de lui pour combattre la solitude et parce qu'il s'y est attaché.

Je le sentais ^_^ ! C'est étrange comme certaines œuvres nous aspirent, dès la première image ou la première ligne, et qu'on sait instantanément qu'il se passe quelque chose. C'est moi qui te remercie. J'ai adoré me plonger dans cette histoire que je n'oublierai pas de sitôt et découvrir ton travail grâce à elle :) . Dès que j'ai un peu de sous je me prends un ou deux tirages!

This looks aaawwweeesssome !!! I didn't understand everything though. Is he turning into plants or only his "experiments" ? Are those plants turning into people or people turning into plants ?

Reminds me of the times i try to do beautifull art and study to achieve it, yet end up with frustrating results. Burrying the pieces deep within untouched folders and drawers. I wonder , if it was the same feeling about art, yout tried to express :3

The mood turns macabre quickly, which is GREAT because I love it when things gets dark... I want to create a short comic strip with a similar method as well, and this artwork gave me more inspiration on what I'm going to do. Looking forward to your work, esp if you have any other strips in the future!

This is so amazing, I can't even focus on what to comment first. Beautiful colours, the vague story telling works like a charm, sphinx is adorable and I wanna know what in earth that alchemist does.

WAW!!! Je suis complètement in love avec cette histoire. Ça mérite un beau recueil relié, voire une version longue :love:
Ça me rappelle des BD vraiment géniales comme "Le Cristal Majeur" (Giraud et Bati) avec laquelle j'ai grandis, surtout pour les cristaux flottants et les couleurs. Ainsi que l’arboretum de Nausicäa.
Bref que des références très proches de moi. Merci Estelle de partager ça !

Loved the panels and the story, hope the little sphynx can keep him safe, it's rather alarming how deeps he sank already....
