This Thing Of Darkness by Yzabel This Thing Of Darkness by Yzabel
If I can follow my path without wavering,
I care not if my heart shatters.
I wish I had a spell
to stand against the sadness
that's ever before my eyes.

— Kalafina, Magia

Media | Time | Soundtrack

English:

Ezekiel Lannister and the DreamEater, in what is quickly becoming a corrupted part of the Oneiros.

An experiment, mostly, with some collage and chalk-like kids drawing aspects, done after watching a few episodes of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. The worlds inside the Witches' barriers in that anime are so twisted and so WTF (Charlotte, oh... Charlotte) that it made me want to try a little experiment. After all, my Oneiros is also pretty much what-the-hell-ish enough that I thought it'd fit the mood. I don't know myself what I managed/if I managed to render anything here, but in any case, it was fun to do all the same—and all the way.

Français:

Ezekiel Lannister et le Mangerêve, dans ce qui est rapidement en train de devenir une partie corrompue de l'Oneiros.

Principalement une expérience avec des éléments du type collage, ou façon dessins de gamins à la craie, réalisée après avoir regardé quelques épisodes de Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Les décors à l'intérieur des mondes des Sorcières sont tellement WTF (Charlotte, oh... Charlotte) que cela m'a donné envie de me livrer à ladite expérience. Après tout, mon Oneiros est plutôt bien barré lui aussi, et je me suis dit que ça collerait bien au thème. Je ne sais pas moi-même ce que j'ai réussi à faire / si j'ai réussi à faire quelque chose ici, mais en tous cas, c'était marrant — et tout du long.

All I can say is WOW! and I NEVER say that. The monster is beautiful, It reminds me of an anime called "Mononoke" (not Princess Mononoke)
It's sweet you should look it up!

Yup, it's my OC. Pretty much everything I draw is either my OCs or other people's OCs (commissions or gifts). I must've a couple of genuine fanart pieces in my gallery, but I've never been too at ease with it, so I seldom draw anything from official series, anime etc.

Pretty much the same here. When I was 14-15 or so, I had started working on a comics (although the very first one I made was when I was... 6, I think?), but I just couldn't stop adding plot complications, I had no script, only a vague idea of where I was going... can't really work on a comics that way. So unless I manage to find a *short* story idea and put it into proper script first, I probably won't try again before a long, long time. ^^

Working on realism is never a bad thing anyway. I hope it's proving as useful to you as it's been to me. :)

I've never seen that movie, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. I guess that's one more incentive to try to lay my hands on that one...

And thanks for your comment! :)

Very nice contrast between the fine lines of the forground and less 'tamed' background.
I especially like the choice of colour, and subtle shades.
The only one thing I'm unsure about is Ezekiel's waist, its a little slim, however thats more a preference thing, and not something critical to the piece.
I like this - faved

Possibly, yes. he's meant to be quite slim, though, which I tried to convey. maybe that's it?

And thank you for faving. :D
