I promise there will be more "heavenly creatures" sunny ... or "dangerous clouds" affraid, G0lden!

For now there's the collage I made for the grab-bag of September 2008 ...

Grab-Bag elements September 2008

earth
a breath of fresh air
a torch / a body of water
a void (physical, emotional or spiritual)
Finding your center or where you belong



To my beloved - with Redhead Ember's inspiring poem




without the text for a better view on the details




and a variation in bright colors instead of "shaded memories"

"I remember it" is even more than only "I love it", G0lden. Knowing that my art stays in mind is satisfying in a different way and makes my heart sing.

More "heavenly creatures" - HOT Anger! COLD Rage!





You might remeber those two as well from the spoilers I gave in the chat box.

One very irritated Strongbow.  The other I can't quite make out the face.  Both are so cool looking.

I'm sorry Rayek is so hard to recognize for your eyes, G0lden. Sad The trick with those "heavenly" images is to obscure it as much as possible - and still keep it distinct enough. A balancing act. Shape and light effect of the cloud fit almost too well with Rayek's features and colors ... he's one of those who almost merge too well.
At least Strongbow is unmistakable. I love how the lightning turns into his sending star ... - or is it the other way round? Wink


Some random fun:

Stormcatcher introduced me to the southern stargazer ...



... I couldn't resist!  Skywise Wink

*chuckles* I see you had fun with this modification ^^ ... and I had fun with your responses! Laughing


Guess you know what follows - October grab-bag brought a new poem by Redhead - and this time nothing grew Sad Sure, there were pictures evoked by the poem but they didn't join themselves and melt together as I was used to.

This collage is the first one I had to construct - taking a piece of paper, making a sketch (sorry, artists, it doesn't deserve this name), planning the position for the different bits and pieces. When the collage was finished it contains all the elements as intended - but it felt somehow ... dissatisfying ... artificial. I still saw the single pictures instead of the whole.

It took me a third and forth and fifth and ...th look the following days to realize how perfect the circle was - well succeeded!

Grab-Bag elements Oktober 2008

celebration of the past (of some kind)
truly seeing someone for the first time (such as through their actions)
an accidental kill
a child's birth



The Circle

November grab-bag was really mean - Redhead's contribution introduced us to elven Halloween! :afftaid: Not only that it's impossible to find a "trick or treat" situation in the comics - I don't really like these maskerade events. So I declared to quit ...
Hahahahahaha - this time the poem obsessed me ... masks haunted me ... pictures from EQ started to follow me - and about two weeks later I gave up, being ready for this special challenge.

The environment framing the scene was ready before my eyes. Choosing masks for the elf children was lots of fun Rayek Devil Ekuar
Some were obvious and easy
- Dart - the Native American, Newstar - the Fairy, Wing - the Angel, Trinket as Princess Goldylocks
Some aquired a little planning
- how to make a Sun-top? what would Ember be? Ahh- Chief-to-be! ... finally borrowed a chief's lock from a poor foxy
Some were a problem
- what to do with Mender? ... ??? ... !!! eventually revealing the true reason for Trinket's crush on him! Troll Tongue
Some were forgotten Strongbow Scowl
- really almost forgot Windkin - at least his mask was self-evident!


Up to now it was sheer fun - what followed was an awful work of searching, editing and pasting of masks and bodies - til I was rewarded by a well fitting Halloween picture! cheers Hahahahahaha - as far as Halloween will ever be fitting for elves Madcoil

Forgive me this endless preamble - guess I need some extra fun while reposting. ^^

Grab-Bag elements November 2008

licking (an action)
scaring the s***t out of someone
a fierce storm (hurricane, blizzard, maelstrom)
a weapon



Halloween - poem by Redhead Ember

What else to choose for the bat-elf's son ... ^^
Thanks for the loving comments, Nibblet and G0lden. Glad you enjoy!


Heavenly creatures - fitting the Halloween theme. Another beauty ... another beast ...

I love the first one, Em. The spiderweb makes a perfect "face" to compliment the eyes. Very well put together, as usual! I love you

Love the new pics Em. The spider web one is too cool. The one with the lightning is wicked looking.

Thank you all for the great feedback! I love you
Guess you talk about the "trick and treat" Halloween collage, Tymber. Redhead Ember had a large share in this one! Bet I'd NEVER had such an idea myself. It was FUN!
Using this spider web photo was irresistibel, Nibblet. I saw a face/mask in it at first view ... and unexpectedly perfect for Winnowill.
Angrif's Armada in the black sky during a thunderstorm - as wicked-creepy as it can be for Halloween, G0lden!


My Halloween mood in 2008 was enough to create another collage - using Jeedai's Preserver dollz. Here are examples of his skills. You can see his originals were much prettier - even Petalwing is forced to wear an Alien mask by me!

Now ... the Forbidden Grove is frightening enough in plain daylight but beware of this

Scary Night!

I cannot make new collages before I've found and get used to a new picture editing program. Best cance to repost old ones!


The Elfquest Dolling thread of the original SoC and the interaction with the dollers inspired some more fun work.

Last Minute Christmas Shopping



When elfeneyes dolled her much too pretty Oddbit this idea was a must-do! Laughing


And - following the year's celebrations ... Pike's very private New Year fireworks



Many thanks to katcombs for the sprites!

Thank you, G0lden! sunny Actually it's old pieces reposted ... from a time when dollz triggered a part of my mind that's able to pull a joke or two. ^^


Back to the grab-bags. I started to love this monthly challenge back in 2008 and - tho my contributions are often belated - more than one inspiration was eating my free time. December grab-bag was such a fertile one ...

Grab-Bag elements December 2008

gift given to show you care
singing / a pine/evergreen tree
winter ("white-cold")
discovering something new



First there was the collage for Redhead's story - don't break a tradition Wink Without the story it's still a lovely view on our resident human lovers

A Winter's Gift




A song within jeb's (aka Outlier) story was a must do for an illustration - I wouldn't miss the rare chance to do something with Silverseed, the Mother Moon.

Song about Mother Moon and Child Moon



Have you noticed that even the middle part is redone? It's not Cutter holding the twins in original - guess whose protective hands remained?


(note to myself: Link to the grab-bags!)

Some more reposting ...
Those are from my very beginnings - pieces to practice and get familiar with the tools of my first picture editing program.


One to please Kindredsoul - not really made as a request but posted to fulfill her plea for "anything" about Cutter  Cutter Cool I remberer you've liked it quite a bit ... *is missing your comments from the old Scroll* Sad

Colored Moods of Cutter



and a bigger version of a banner fitting this theme




Another one was dedicated to Icemoon - fast fulfilling her request for "anything" about Clearbrook. Very Happy My enthusiastic young friend will be a beautiful lady by now.

Colored Moods of Clearbrook



with a bigger version of her banner




And last not least someone who needs to find loving friends, too.

Colored Moods of Two-Edge



complete with bigger banner version




Back in those days you had to search for "mis-colorings" ... and 9 out of 10 were used as a stylistic device to enhance a character's mood and expression I loved to gather and play with them.
