When I say choice I mean that they are things I read that caught my personal attention. Grim lines that sounded kind of cool at the time profound, or just something I remembered that I cant dislodge from my head.
and the reason I'm typing this out . . . Well in the grand scheme of things there doesnt have to be a reason. this is the internet. where people post stupid or meaningless shit all the live long days and nights.
If there has to be a reason its because I have just finished the line art for one of my drawings and am looking for something else to do for a little bit.
Now some of you are probably interested in the drawing. what might it be? I'm curious. Well Ill tell you and then I want to get on with the quotations and random junk from my head while I still remember a bit of it.
Since the fey world is no more I can draw my fey beings in any kind of clothing setting circumstance or form. Some might say thats how I been doing it but I always set a rule and I tried to keep a typical set of clothing and shape to the fey. I tried asserting my new character the dark elf kalina in the usual chat where I hang out wiht my friends but to them I will always be a pixie.
So I'm redoing m pixie persona. From here on I shall be a dark pixie.
For the sake of adding a bit of concept to this I've made my nest in a halflings skull. Yea Frodo had many adventures after the ring, and lived happily ever after to the end of his days. ofcourse when the end of his days did come he didnt have much use for his skull. Finders keepers. >: D
And I live in a place called Darkengloom wood. It's not a nice place but I'm not a nice person so it all sort of cancels out I suppose. This particular wood will eventually have a place on the map made a while ago, just as soon as we can figure out where its supposed to go.
And finally I have a man-servant. He hails from some strange desert land with lots of gunpowder and strange horned beasts, but he drinks tea like an Englishman and always has a stick of cinnamon for his mistress.
Ok now for those qoutations:
Rasputin: hellboy: I died alone, and beheald an angel, and in his right hand, the key to the bottomless pit. [I searched this for accuracy but instead found a similar qoute from the bibles revelations that was close but not quite what I was after. if any o you know what was actually said give me a hand here. the scene is near the end of the first hellboy movie. All things considered the movies where good but the comics will always be better.]
T.S. Eliot: and I will show you something dofferent from either your shadow at morning striding behind you or your shadow at evening rising to meet you; I will show you fear in a handfull of dust.
Neil Geiman; Coraline: Nothing down here but damp and dust and forgetting. . . .
hush and shush for the beldam might be listening.
Stephen King; The dark tower series: All things serve THE TOWER.
Don't ask him silly questions, he wont play silly games.
Terry Pratchet; the discworld series: To the Hogfather all pork pies are as one pork pie, except the one that is shaped like a turnip.
I always know where I am. It's not my fault if everywhere else doesn't.
Pull the other one, It's got bells on.
Only until I pull this trigger sir.
["Permission for leave on account of grandmothers funeral sarge?"
"It's her or me sarge."]
That suites me fine. It's harder ta hit a runnin target.
Stephen King: The tomyknockers: Late last night and the night before. Tomyknockers, Tomyknockers, knocking at my door. Want to go out, don't know if I can, Cause I'm so afraid of the tomyknocker man.
Terry Pratchet: Johnny and the Bomb: Mind where your mind goes. Where your mind goes, the rest of you's bound to follow.
Terry Pratchet: Small Gods: We are here and this is now.Everything else is just guess work.
Is that lots? I cant count.
"SMITE YOU WITH THUNDERBOLTS!"
You have heard the expression that hell is other people?
You will find that in time, it is wrong.
I don't know what it is about a stepped pyramid that brings out the worst in a god.
I think I know what went wrong.
TOYR TEETH TO ABSCESS WITH RED HOT. . . . .'HEAT!"
Excuse me love. Could I borrow your cornucopia?
And thats about all I can think of. some of its only funny if you've read the book some of its pretty dark or grim but like I said before you shouldent have expected any of it to make since.
Incidentally these are all great authors I would highly recommend to any reader except for T.S Eliot because I havent read his works. he is however recommended by Stephen King but I'm not sure I could trust the opinion of the author of both thinner and cujo.[just joking Stevey boy : D ] Oh and except for hellboy ONLY BECAUSE its a movie not an author. However the comics are excellent and if you like hellboy I'd also recommend "Wormwood Gentleman Corps"
Ok thats about it for me. I'm going to go and draw Frodo's skull, or make the attempt at least.
