I was in Disney World where the imagination of it rubbed off on me a bit...

Yeah, title says all, basically
Well, I really thought about this first theme. "Rebellion". What could you get into? I decided to really think beyond the topic of the piece being rebellious... but the entire piece and the artist itself being rebellious. Being an artist usually requires following certain guidelines... What colors go together, how neat it is, how the lines work, what shapes are used... throw that all away! Because this is a "rebellion" of an artist! The paper size was 8 x 19, and prismacolor markers were used, alongside a Micron. I hope you like the concept as much as I liked working on this! I do have to apologize for my scanner being a bit... disagreeing, but I fixed it up to the best of my ability.

Alriiiighty, my entry for Dalaam, I finished up on a cramped airplane which was bumpy and crazy. Of all the places to get inspiration! Anyways. Here's the story behind this one! I have always wondered about the art, culture and launguage of the Dalaamese. I felt that after the events of EarthBound, the people of Dalaam welcomed their crown prince with honor, and great admiration. He had just saved the entire planet from an unspeakable evil (Uhh, Samurai Jack theme here!) which they had called the 'Beast With Many Faces'. The young prince had also united with a young man from a culture that the Dalaamese did not think was honorable of the world. (Eagleland) They had to accept that the Great Powerful Chosen Boy was from this culture, and the young prince had to place his cultural difference behind him and befriend that boy, and save the world. The people of Dalaam then created this mural in their honor, emblazing the Prince and the Chosen Boy uniting, and around them, the dangers and friends they would face. NOTES: I really wanted to give an oriental/eastern feel, as Dalaam is based on Asian culture. It was done with no shading, just solid colors, with markers. I also tried to do the simplest of shapes, to represent the theme with power. Another thing I had to do was create the language of Dalaam, which I tried to base off of Chinese and Japanese characters, but in all honesty, I scribbled lines and tried to make them look like those characters. xD Sorry for my hueg rant, I hope you like this. :)
