"chuckles" Never thought of comparing Elfquest with Superman! Inpressive listing of comparisms and coincidences Wink ... I wonder how many fictional worlds could be compared like this picking the right facts. ^^

Blue Mountain, black Winnowill ... so far my thoughts wandered as well. Aroree being seperated from the darkness is a new and interesting facet, Hammer. That's when I love my collage art most - when it evokes new associations and thoughts, strikes up a surprising fusion or tells a little story of it's own. And when this works for my visitor here - that's wonderful.

Let me illustrate something ... a glimpse on how collage making works for me. How my mind is wired ...

Looking for a crystal to ban a special character in it, seeing a crystal that sparks an association with a certain character - both ways work equally well for a start.

Another aquamarine suggesting watery environment, a color reminding of Reef, a beautiful picture of the no more broken one - it's like made for each other.



It's nice, isn't it?

Thats definately a Reef stone, with the chaotic "brokenness" wrapped around the straight lines of the "fixed" crystal, nice!

Exactly my thought, Hammer, and you have put in word what I've seen in it unconciously! I've called the collage "Broken No More".  


Nevertheless ... I've skipped this shard as a fail. This one was just a first draft, a function test, and I was not content at all. Oh, it could have been improved ...


(reworked this one only for demonstration purpose)

... and a minor change makes a difference already. Spot it? The pictures merge better now - but it looks unbalanced. It does not click. There's not the "YESSS! This I want to show!" lamp blinking in mind ... the collage stays interchangeable. Random. Normally such a "fail" goes to the waste bucket and you would never see it.

Sooo... what to do with Reef ...

THIS.

Another aquamarine. Same drawing. Unique idea.

- Breaking the Wall

This one "clicked" ... ^^

YESS! That's what faszinated me too with this idea. Reef is literally breaking the forth wall ... and the structure around the crystal gives him the best oportunity to succeed. Thank you for pointing this out, Wolfie Very Happy Proves me that it works for the viewer.


This first shard was still calling for Reef, tho. Something about it seemed to be made for him as well - Hammer summed it up nicely. I gave it a second and third thought ... skimmed my Reef files ... and VOILÀ!

- Broken No More

Do you see what happened with shard and character this time? It's a true fusion ... and story telling as a bonus.

More variations in water ...

- Magic Pond

Kahvi preserved in blue amber seems very appropriate!

I was slightly obsessed with watery scenes after this Reef "making-of" and just remembed this pool again. I'm lucky to show something knew while I'm still learning GIMP.

- Back to Life

Guess I have obscured Kahvi too much. Then ... she's a spirit and spirits are hard to spot for human eyes. ^^

Thank you, Leanan and fae! flower Glad you enjoy.


Lovely ... well, this was meant as a fast test, only a "sloppy sketch", but it turned out lovely. Good enough to show ...



... might try a "perfect" version for finger practice on my new program sooner or later.

Thank you, fae. flower Miss you on the forum. Hope you are well and real life is kind.


Still no new ones to show. Still struggling much too much with my new program.

Any suggestions for combinations of elf and shard to spark ideas and ambition?

=D thank you so much, Em!

I love how it looks like fire trapped in underneath ice. Hindered, smothered. So fitting for my favourite bitter healer

I'm glad you like it so much, Shadowpath! Originally this one should be your gift egg. The motive turned out too small and not recognizable in default size, tho. Having it as a Palace Shard is even better now!
Fire underneath Ice - that's an excellent way to describe it. I like learning about your associations. Very Happy

Thank you so much for the great comments, Evie and Beryl. *group hug*


Those druzy eggs captured my eyes and attention. There were more eggs ... and more ideas. This one was Wolfie's gift egg:

- ... with Stars as Dowry

These are incredible! I love them. A fine example of "fan-ac" (fannish activity) that's not fanfic!

*bows* Thank you for those enthusiastic comments, G0lden and Kat! My dear thanks to you too, Davrille. *blushes* Fannish activity ... "fan-ac" Very Happy ... now I have a name for my playful approaches!


Another one inspired by Shadowpath's "bitter healer" ...

- Gate to the Stars

... no doubt who would volonteer to move into this pastel colored shiny home.

Another thread mended - pictures shine as they should again!


Thank you for your loyal followership and praise, G0lden. *hugs* I'm so happy when I can offer a pleasant view and make visitors smile! sunny

Rellah was very present in my mind those days, Vojira. Smile And I found a handful of gems which are just made for her! I'll need to revisit your picture suggestions sooner or later!
