Musicians...

of sorts, at least.

These two, along with Abercreid, Erika Callas and Maestro Megratti from this image: [link] belong to the same story.

Talking about the story a bit:
The idea is to focus it entirely on music and, of course, musicians. I came up with it 4 (or 5?) years ago and wanted to work with a friend of mine (who is a conservatory musician) and create something like Prokofiev's 'Peter and the Wolf', only darker, more fantasy-oriented and accompanying each musicians' peculiar way of playing music:
Boodlun, for example, scatters his thoughts through his music; Filissio's music poisons the air. It's because he naturally exudes poison, so he uses his suit to prevent intoxicating others, but unfortunately his poisonous nature flows in his music and, even if it's melancholy and beautiful, it kills you with time (just like sadness).

+Worthy of noting:

There is a saying that goes "there is nothing new under the sun", but Borges wisely points out in one of his essays "maybe 70 years of being forgotten make it a novelty [talking about a peculiar religious text]". This applies to everything, I believe. And it also brings me to memory that "those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it", because once you know what has happened, you can understand what is 'new' or not too.
Anyways, I mention all of this, because I thought Filissio's concept (of poisoning the air and all that) was new. Two years ago I read "Chamario" (I think that's the title) from publisher Ekaré, and in one of the poems Eduardo Polo talks about a scorpion that plays a violin, but that the audience died because of the poison, so... we are all using ideas of someone else, we just don't know it :/
(which begs the question: then who exactly thought the first idea that then echoes through time? > 1. No one. In eternity there is no "first" idea.
2. There are no ideas. There are only realities perceived by those not in them and hence, no one can think of anything that does not exist in one or more parallel realities.
3. The source is the vast and diminishing pool of ideas that constitutes the outside of each universe: that is why our universe expands into 'nothing' -which is this pool- and at the same times consumes it. Thus the next time the universe 'resets' itself, it'll be because there is no 'nothing' to suck into our reality
My thoughts about the matter, of course...)

These were done in 2007 or 2008.

Hi! :D Thanks for the compliments and kind words :blushes:
I love Burton's work, well, at least what he used to do. His last movies have not been entirely of my liking, though. However, I'm happy for the comparison you make.
It is curious you should mention Bandit Jing :nod: I do love the series (the manga, not so much the anime) and it has been an inspiration for me. I think Kumakura sensei (the creator of King of Bandits) is one of the few mangakas I truly adore :) Curiously enough, I read Jing until relatively recently, and it was because a friend of mine also mentioned that my works reminded him of Kumakura's work. Funny world, isn't it?

It'd be a pleasure knowing you more, of course ^_^
Now, answering your question, you upload artworks using the button "Submit Art" in your front (or main) page. I do hope you can upload your work and share your visions. From what I see, we have more or less the same tastes in visuals :)
Also, thanks again ;)

Sin duda mi gran favorito es Filissio me parece que es una figura bien oscura. Chido el detalle en el collar de Boodlun. Creo recordar estos de su libreta de bocetos

interesantes las ponencias de su comentario

Me alegra leer que Filissio es tu fav ;) no sé porqué, pero aunque en sí es más oscuro su concepto, tiende a ser más querido que Boodlun.
Si, de hecho tenía a Boodlun y en algún momento se los mostré, de eso ya hace años en el Sangrons ;P

Me alegra que alguien lo lea ;) uno pone el corazón en la bandeja a veces ^_^

Great drawing as ever Javier. Interesting text too. History repeating itself ? I don't know, looked at on a personal level I think we rise and fall mostly on a spiral so that we find ourselves in very nearly the same place over and over again. Maybe there are no new ideas but each of us is different and if a person is true to themselves then the thoughts can appear fresh and interesting.

Thank you so much for that, John :bow: glad you liked this one :D
Oh, well, the idea of time being a cycle is something interesting, it scares me a bit to think that things may repeat -with little variations- in eternity :o
That phrase and thought you share is really something :nod: I like it and it is a good way to remember (and remind) that being honest with oneself is amongst the best policies, and beneficial for other things besides mental health and happiness :)

Me gustó más Filizzio. ^^ Es que encuentro medio pertubardor lo de ese instrumento saliendo del oido del gordito.

;) A pesar de ser venenoso, Filizzio es un pan (es como decir que es suave de carácter = buena gente :D ), Boodlûn es manipulador :o Además por lo que dices del instrumento saliéndole de un lado de su cabeza ;P
