Now heres how the story starts [ think I will expand and refine before I post on the GT book thread ]

In the lands , known as Somewhere Else , off the beaten path into the darker side of the forest , in a little known corner , there alone stands a door.
Just a door ,an old worn weather beaten door, with no building nor fenceing attached to it. Carved into it is written "WELCOME " but hanging [not neatly nailed] under it a sign stating "IF YOU DARE" .


Well , you see , this is the entrance , to a village that a tribe of trolls have taken for their own , a place of mosses , molds , muds , and of bad smells,
their name for this dreary place is Grumbel Garble .


thats about it for now
please comment
latter

Re: GOBLIN TREE wip part 1

Thanks Axl !
Things keep coming together fairly well , allways something new "poping in" on my imagination , this just in -- the toll bridge is actually very long because the creek winds and weaves though out and its very swampy in some parts .
Well heres the bridge with the under painting done , just got to work on the details .....
this of coarse is done with w/c on hp w/c paper and with fine inkline work.
than Ill add some [actual physical ]airbrush effects ,then maybe - just maybe some ps fx.

later,
stillbill

Re: GOBLIN TREE wip part 1

Okay , story update ,

page 3 something like this ;
one night , when hec was on duty , a traveler , who was on a mission to get some special mushrooms , from a troll whom is well reknown for her market trade in mushrooms [only grown in this part of the lands known as Somewheres Else ].
This traveler spent most of the wee hours haggleing with hec , the poor fellow got so worn down , that he turned back empty handed and with a loss of some of his own items as well .
Hec bellowed his horrible laughter so loud , it echoed all up and down the bridge and then back again , HUHHHARRR HARRR HHHARRR HAHHAAAHHAHHHA HUUHHHHHAAARRRAHAHHAAAHHHHAAHAHECHECHECAHARHARDYHA R HAHHAH,
something like that but even worse. And it weighed very heavy at the back of the traveler, so head hunched over he muttered and waved his fist at the toll bridge and troll village in general as he left .
So this traveler , you see , just happens to be the assistant for a masterful wizzard , who resides many a league from the troll village.
The wizzard was very upset about what happened to his assistant [for he needed those mushrooms for a prodject he was working on at the time] . So the wizzard morphed himself into that image of his assistant when he arrived at the door into the forest , where lies the troll village named Grumgle Garble .


comments? should I make an illus here ?

yours

Re: GOBLIN TREE wip part 1

Next part still in sketchy notes , basicly starts like this;

Standing at the highest deck of his spiral towerhome , looking out over the valleylands . meditating on the troubles a idea came flashing red and blue , the wizard - Ars visu - then laughed a funny and warm laugher and smiled into the distant ...


the wizard morphed himself into the likeness of his assistant when he arrived at the door into the forest where trolls dwell ...

staying in the shadows of this overly strange and electricifing night until Hec Heckle took his shift at the toll tower { the wizard set a stort spell suppending time , making it a very slow night }

Being extemely bored by this hec was throwing stones at the owls and crushing bugs when the incognito wizard approached , hec brought out his lantern staff and stood still as a statue ........




Katies story is up next and I desided to do it as a story poem titled
" floria Moria , the flower eater " about a pesty fairie ..
will include a couple illus
yours

Thumbs up Re: GOBLIN TREE wip part 1

Love the story & the concept!

As a child, a similar aged girl (Martha, as I recall, - but it has been a looong time ago!) would visit next door & we would make up stories & act out the characters - witches, trolls, princess, etc.

The detail in your paintings is fantastic - it makes it very easy for me to lose myself in the story!

Am eagerly awaiting the next installment!

Re: GOBLIN TREE wip part 1

Thanks ndinellh, keeps me thinking .

Since its full out summer here in this part of the world, thought I'd change my avatar [ and profiles ] to something more fitting , its a detail from an early version of a piece I've done over a few times [ yeah one of those ] and since avatars are so small , I'll post this larger one here ; say this three times fast without twisting and your there ,

Re: GOBLIN TREE wip part 1

Opening stanza to story poem by katie
FLORA MORA { the flower eater }
oh flora , oh flora mora
you funny little fairie thing
one can barely see you down there
inbetweenx the flowers fine
all bright colors you are
so much so that you must be a flower too
maybe it is so
because I heard a story of
long long ago
in that strange of strange lands
that is only known as
somewheres else

for now

Flora Mora in later years ,

one day at play
wanted from the grown flowers
to dance while she sang olden elf songs
and to join her in fun games in the garden wonderous
so [ with a bit of elf-child simple magic ] she brought to shape
