Anker's at night 3.0 by MichaelSwordblade
Anker's at night 3.0
I heard a soft sound behind me. The moonlight showed her tiny shadow on the wall as she climbed through the window. I felt the bed move as she settled onto it.
A small, cool hand brushed the side of my face.
“It’s okay,” she said quietly. “Come here.”
I began to cry quietly, and she gently uncurled the tight knot of me until my head lay in her lap. She murmured, brushing my hair away from my forehead, her hands cool against my hot face.
“I know,” she said sadly. “It’s bad sometimes, isn’t it?”
She stroked my hair gently, and it only made me cry harder. I could not remember the last time someone had touched me in a loving way.
“I know,” she said. “You have a stone in your heart, and some days it’s so heavy there is nothing to be done. But you don’t have to be alone for it. You should have come to me. I understand.”
My body clenched and suddenly the taste of plum filled my mouth again. “I miss her,” I said before I realized I was speaking. The I bit off before I could say anything else. I clenched my teeth and shook my head furiously, like a horse fighting its reins.
“You can say it,” Auri said gently.
I shook again, tasted plum, and suddenly the words were pouring out of me. “She said I sang before I spoke. She said when I was just a baby she had the habit of humming when she held me. Nothing like a song. Just a descending third. Just a soothing sound. Then one day she was walking me around the camp, and she heard me echo it back to her. Two octaves higher. A tiny piping third. She said it was my first song. We sang it back and forth to each other. For years.” I choked and clenched my teeth.
“You can say it,” Auri said softly. “It’s okay if you say it.”
“I’m never going to see her again,” I choked out. Then I began to cry in earnest.
“It’s okay,” Auri said softly. “I’m here, You’re safe".

I'm not completely satisfied with the results yet, but I think it has reached a good point ... it is time to attempt anothert thing... color

This is the first journal I'll do on DEVIANTart, and  I'm gonna use it to confess two things: One is the most common sin of any artist ... drawing on school notebooks in class. The other one... for a short time, while doing my thesis... I was reading the Eragon saga ... and I found it entertaining... and almost good.
The first thing I can say, is  that nowadays it bothers me, as a teacher that my students do not pay attention to me ... but I'm sure my classes are not gray and boring as those I was forced to attend. I even had an exchange of drawings with some of my students in art history... fine. Some of my drawings,  that I've  kept as I am a sort of compulsive accumulator ... and perusing some of my old sketch books and notebooks, I found some stuff I'd like to share. There are many ideas that I had in order to do more complex work that demotivation or lack of time made me abandon.

I had many ideas for Harry Potter fan art when the phenomenon was raging... even a short graphic novel about the childhood and the conversion into a werewolf of Remus Lupin, his life with  Nymphadora Tonks, his wife, and of course my favorite Luna Lovegood.
I'll share some of that material. Beginning with a few ideas I had for the murder of Lupin and Tonks by Bellatrix Lestrange.

And about the other crime... Well Eragon sucks. Enough said.

Christopher Paolini took the matter of Fanfick to printers, very similar to the 50 shades of Grey success. What was a bad series of plagiarisms basted and hippy propaganda, rose as something that should had remain in internet forums. That guy is not bad as a redactor... but frankly the the copying is too rampant and his attitude as narrator is pedantic and promote the use of recreational drugs, mud orgies, vegetarianism and atheism barely masked. I really hate Pamphleteer art of any sort.

Come on! We know J.K. Rowling also made her work over a series of plagiarisms ... but she did it with grace. I enjoy the Potter universe! We all love Jo! .. Anyway ... we can summarize that Eragon's film saga honors the books ... only a movie... short and bad. If everything had gone in the film script like in the first book, people would have seen a dark haired Luke Skywalker that  joined the Fellowship of the Ring, and then meet with the rebel troops .. riding a dragon with premenstrual syndrome.

Amen, I did some art before seeing the whole picture. Sorry ... but I did it with pleasure, back in the day.



Este es el primer journal que hago en DEVIANT art, y lo usaré para confesar dos cosas : Una el pecado más común  de cualquier artista… dibujar en las libretas de la escuela en clase, lo otro… por un corto tiempo mientras hacía mi tesis… estuve leyendo la saga de Eragon… y me pareció entretenido... y casi bueno.
De lo primero, puedo decir que ahora como profesor  me molesta que mis alumnos no me presten atención… pero estoy seguro que mis clases no son grises y aburridas como las que me vi obligado a llevar. Incluso tuve un intercambio de dibujos con algunos de mis alumnos de historia del arte... en fin.  Algunos de mis dibujos los conservé ya que tengo un poco de acumulador compulsivo… y hojeando algunas de mis viejas libretas y cuadernos de sketch, encontré algunas cosas que quisiera compartirles. Hay muchas ideas que he tenido para hacer obras más complejas que por desmotivación o falta de tiempo en su momento abandoné.
Tenía muchas ideas para hacer fan art de Harry Potter cuando estaba en plena efervescencia el fenómeno… incluso una novela gráfica corta sobre la infancia y conversión de Remus Lupín en Hombre Lobo, su esposa Nymphadora Tonks  y por supuesto mi favorita Luna Lovegood.
Les iré compartiendo algo de ese material. Empezando con  unas ideas que tenía del asesinato de Lupin y Tonks por Bellatrix Lestrange.
En cuanto a lo otro… Bueno Eragon apesta. He dicho.

Christopher Paolini llevó el asunto Fanfiquero a las imprentas, casi casi como las 50 sombras de Grey. Lo que era una mal hilvanada serie de plagios y propaganda hippy, se levantó como algo que debió permanecer en foros de internet. No es mal redactor… pero francamente el copiadero es demasiado rampante la actitud como narrador es pedante y su promoción del uso de drogas recreacionales, orgías en lodo, vegetarianismo y ateísmo está mal disimulada. Odio el arte panfletario.
¡Vamos! Sabemos que J.K. Rowling también hizo en su obra una serie de plagios… pero lo hizo con gracia ¡Adoro el universo Potter! ¡Todos amamos  a Jo!..  En fin… podemos resumirlo en que la saga fílmica hace honor a los libros… solo una película… Corta y mala. Si hubiera salido todo lo del primer libro la gente se hubiera quedado como que: Luke Skywalker se unió a la comunidad del anillo, para después reunirse con las tropas rebeldes… montando una dragona con síndrome premestrual.
Amén, hice algo de arte antes de ver toda la imagen. Lo siento… pero lo hice con gusto, en aquellos días.
