Embala's ElfQuest Collages

Embala

I was a much too silent visitor of the Scrolls for months - too shy for posting comments, not to mention of thinking about my own art thread. I have to thank ElfTanner, who sort of wakend me, for her patience in improving my not existing tecnical skills of posting issues.



Finally posting my first piece I was quite astonished to hear from Joselle that making collages is an art form - and ... that she liked it! Her's and Allura's encouraging comments made me go on, as well as Willowspring's friendly support.



My first thread vanished in the hacker attack. Having lost the nice, encouraging and stimulating comments of all my visitors is the only thing I really regret ... everything else can be rebuilt. It will take a few days to bring it back. I decided not to post all in a rush but to use this to rearrange and post in little groups.



A fast finger practice - just wanted to have these two together in their ceremonial gowns:

The Power of the Circle









Before I run the risk of loosing track of my theads I'll better list them here



Avatars and Banners - feel free to chose (well, there's hardly use for it anymore)

Waiting for Christmas - an Advent calender I hope to revive every year

Easter EggQuest - a little yearly fun for Easter ... hopefully

EQ's Little House of Horror - Halloween ideas which will be renewed too ... at times





If I remember right I accepted requests :D



1. for Kindredsoul: an "anything" about Cutter - done -

2. for Kindredsoul: a Cutter-Rayek-relationship developement

3. for Icemoon: an "anything" about Clearbrook - done -

4. for Icemoon: ... something about Moonshade ...

5. for Stargazer: a Skywise one (loosing wolfblood /becoming Master of the Palace)



... I don't promise to be fast ...

joselle

It is an art form! Eeet issss!

Technically, this is really well done. I had to read the explanation because I didn't recognize at first that the pic [b:1b1a2f8fff]wasn't[/b:1b1a2f8fff] just a crop from the FTP edition. So, good job you.

Kitt

[color=green:311fd72c3a]WELCOME BACK!! :D[/color:311fd72c3a]

stargazer

Very nice piece!

Embala

Thanks for the welcome, Kitt.



I'll believe, Joselle. I dooo! Laugh Thank you for encouraging again. I did my best to make it fit so it makes me happy to hear it works.

Your visit and comment is appreciated, Stargazer :D

I remember there was a very encouraging comment from your side, too, Jeb. Another one eaten by this d... hackers Unhappy

Hope you'll enjoy the following - mostly reposting and one new piece. I started to experience with my programm a year ago. While trying to develope more complex collages, sort of a series round Bearclaw's death resulted. Some came out well and different enough to show. The collages weren't done in this order, but it makes sense to post them this way.

Edit:
Just got a wonderful present from Redhead Ember Wink - she was inspired to an awesome series of poems fitting to my pieces. Thanks a lot! Wink
look here to visit!

I do like your collages Embala - they're all so well done! The Bearclaw series is great.

jeb

Ahh, so you saw my post! Seems like so many of my posts didn't survive the hack.

Basically the gist was - love your work and appreciate all the hard work that goes into it. I'm glad that you overcame your reluctance and decided to post your art for us all to share! :D

Embala

It's all my joy to share with you. I'm very happy some of you nice people here pushed me forward - and still do.



After so much drama something different and funny might be nice Smile

Nightsea always tries to introduce newbies to the dolling fun. This Ember base she offered was just too tempting ...





click to see full sized



For me it was only another kind of collage - the costume is borrowed from a Hidden Years title. Dressing a doll this way was a one time fun only ... so I looked for something more ...

This base was meant as a Shenshen - but I preferred to make a slightly deranged Ember Wink







... and then I found my extra fun Grin

Last not least a very young and unexperienced Strongbow Evilgrin







All bases were prepared and provided by Nightsea at her Dollz thread - eaten by the attack now Errr

blackash

Glad to see your collages again. The way you interplay the different elements together, makes me think you would be good at story boarding.

Icemoon

embala !!!!!!!!!!

it is really super-cool to see you and your awesomes collages back !!!

Embala

Happy to see you revisiting, blackash and Icemoon! It's all my pleasure to share my collages and collect such wonderful comments. Happy



I don't quite understand what story-boarder means exactly. Guess it's a job longing for creativity - I'm honored. Tho I must confess - I intentionally decided against a creative job - was afraid a "must" of creativity would kill my fun and love for it. I'm a banker - and happy with it.



Now that the grab-bags have returned it's time to repost some of my contributions.



August 2008 Readhead Ember posted a cryptic poem - not revealing who was meant with it. Now - I was absolutely sure that only Rayek could be meant - and before realizing I've made a collage to show my point of view. Here is

Guess you know what follows - October grab-bag brought a new poem by Redhead - and this time nothing grew Unhappy Sure, there were pictures evoked by the poem but they didn't join themselves together as I was used to.



This collage is the first one I had to construct - taking a piece of paper, making a sketch (sorry, artists, it doesn't deserve this name), planning the position for the different bits and pieces. When the collage was finished it contains all the elements as they were planned - but it felt somehow ... dissatisfying - artificial. I still saw the single pictures instead of the whole.



It took me a third and forth and fifth and ...th look the following days to realize how perfect the circle was - well succeeded!



The Circle - poem by Redhead Ember

Embala

November grab-bag was really mean - Redhead's contribution introduced us to elven Halloween OMG!! ! Not only that it's impossible to find a "trick or treat" situation in the comics - I don't really like these maskerade events. So I declared to quit ...
Hahahahahaha - this time the poem obsessed me ... masks haunted me ... pictures from EQ started to follow me - and about two weeks later I gave up, being ready for this special challenge.

The environment framing the scene was ready before my eyes. Choosing masks for the elf children was lots of fun Good_bad
Some were obvious and easy
- Dart - the Native American, Newstar - the Fairy, Wing - the Angel, Trinket as Princess Goldylocks
Some cost a little planning
- how to make a Sun-top? what would Ember be? Ahh- Chief-to-be! ... finally borrowed a chief's lock from a poor foxy
Some were a problem
- what to do with Mender? ... ??? ... !!! eventually revealing the true reason for Trinket's crush on him! Tongue
Some were forgotten Unhappy
- really almost forgot Windkin - at least his mask was self-evident!

Up to now it was sheer fun - what followed was an awful work of searching, editing and pasting of masks and bodies - til I was rewarded by a well fitting Halloween picture Yay
Hahahahahaha - as far as Halloween will ever be fitting for elves Razz

Forgive me this endless preamble - guess I need some extra fun while reposting

It a process of putting a series of ideas (usually drawings) into order to tell a story, that is then later filmed or animated.

Well I glad that your life is following a path that you are enjoying. For life is about the journey, not reaching the end.

Thanks, blackash Smile

Shaman! Surprised ..... I wasn't aware you saw it before ! Happy



The grab-bag illustrations were mostly drama ... so back to the funny ones:



My Halloween mood was enough to create another collage - using Jeedai's Preserver dollz (mostly eaten by the hacker attack). Here's a newer example of his skills. You can imagine his originals were much prettier - even Petalwing is forced to wear an Alien mask by me!



Now ... the Forbidden Grove is frightening enough in plain daylight but beware of this

Back to the grab-bags. I started to love this monthly challenge - tho my contributions are a little belated sometimes - or more than one inspiration is eating my free time. December grab-bag was such a fertile one ...

First there was the collage for Redhead's story - don't break a tradition Wink Without the story it's still a lovely view on our resident human lovers

Embala

So many comments! Yay

Glad you like them, Mournsong. I loved the idea of the two girls playing with barbies - and the cause of quarreling was obvious Grin

Thanks for constantly coming around, Redhead Happy

Hug Willowspring - You were one of my first supporters, too.

Thank you so much, joyleaf *blushes* Be sure I will go on ... being more or less busy.
btw: Whom I've to ask where I can find - and whether I'll be allowed to use! - this colored version of the Recognition you show in your banner?

Kindredsoul, I'm so happy you enjoy more than only Cutter Wink Regarding this special request - feel free to suggest pictures you'd like being included. I don't promise to use (all of) them but it may spark my imagination.

Happy you've fun visiting my thread, Kitt, hope you'll survive the next one, too Laugh

Just couldn't resist the cuteness of it, Icemoon. Smile You must have a big heart, feeling for Winnie. Now I'm feeling guilty Unhappy ... not really!


Two quickies which never made it in one of my larger collages - I love how they came out, though!

Your collages are great,the one with ember and trinket is cute.

Willowspring

*jaw drops*

Together.... is... omg beautiful

*hugs you tightly*

Kitt

Together is so moving! I love it! :heart:

xenophile80

Seconds Kitt's sentiment. It really strikes a deep chord.

Embala

Kiss Thanks all of you for the lovely comments on my "little ones".



Tho - I have to ask :? ... is it really Together (=the hands) you are praising? I like it for sure but if this one causes such emotions I'm VERY surprised - one more time!

Realized that NightAngel's question is already answerd by Xiu. Thanks Happy



Time for one of my first ones to return. Not at all the first being posted - but created very early when I learned how to handle my little programm. There are pretty much pictures blended together in one row. You must take a closer look if you want to identify the single ones.



Healer's Hands

blackash

Oh but the why of it makes all the different in the person doing the deed.

Embala

I'm tempted to agree, blackash, but - even if someone thinks there is a good reason or has the best intensions - the result CAN be as wrong and bad. It highly depends on how "wise" the decision is.
And even then - how highly understandable and forgivable it will be from an outsider's point of view ... it will often make no difference for one who has to suffer from.

That's my very general opinion to your comment ... and not related to the events shown in the collage. There I'd rather go with you.

Anyway - it's an Elfquest quote going well with the pictures ... or other way round :)

Willowspring

Wow... thats awesome Embala!!!!

Kitt

[color=green:ce7d0007c9]I remember this one! Exquisite! :)[/color:ce7d0007c9]

Icemoon, that was a perfect way to describe it!

And Embala, that is a perfect picture!




Do I need to say anything more? Wink

Embala

Thank you all! Happy *big hug* Your appreciation means alot.



Siwan kept me busy with her requests for some special avatars and banners. These are some (slightly bigger) results plus ideas I realized around this theme. Maybe Icemoon will be pleased - alot about Moonshade.

Not the usual collages - Tymber called it "art manipulation" - guess it fits well for it.



Strong Family - simply put them closer together for avatars

Willowspring

blackash

Love moonshade with babs. Having crescent as a spirt works well. :D

Embala

I was so satisfied how "Two Moons" came out, Kindred Happy ... hm ... wonder whether this would work with Cutter seeing his parents ... or Clearbook ... - but Moonshade and Crescent were the natural choice!



Changing the family pics and adding Crescent was great fun, blackash. I was surprised how well Crescent goes with the new style of Moonshade - the linework as well as Foxeye's coloring.



Most of them ARE avies, Willowspring Wink ... tho mostly reserved by Siwan.

Icemoon

yay !!
moooooooonshaaaaaaaaaade !!

Embala

I knew you would enjoy :D

There are still some pictures to repost - this started over one year ago with a simple combination. These two pics show strong similarities yet absolute contrasts - and went well together ... sort of a sketch

Thanks so much. Wouldn't be the same without your kind visits and friendly comments Happy



Guess I must have "an eye" for these tho you wouldn't believe how often the collage seems to grow sort of unintentionally, in a playful kind. In this case I couldn't say what was first ... the harmonic, visual appealing picture or the idea of showing the



Twin's Heritage







... it suddenly exists - and I like Wink

Icemoon

G0lden, believing only half of your praise would make me boastful Wink



Willowspring and Icemoon - you are just too enthusiastic Happy



Of course there will be more. Tho I must admit that I'm neither a hard nor a very steady worker. For this time only something small. I call them my cards - not really cards but simple combinations with standard size and layout. If you like there will be more ... if not ... too Tongue It's too much fun to play with moods, environment and colors!



Winnowill - Dark Sorceress and her perfect match Strongbow - Dark Sorcerer







Strongbow - God of Thunder

I like "Strongbow- God of Thunder".
Simply because Strongbow makes me laugh for reasons I can no longer remember! Grin

[/quote:dcf17b885b]

I don't know, I think this one is really good. Plus, with his blue eyes, white hair and black clothes I can easily see him as a god of lightening or ice. (But then I'm so biased, I could see him as a god of [i:dcf17b885b]anything[/i:dcf17b885b].)

I think Rayek would be great as a god of fire. Not only for his eyes, but his beginnings in the desert.

The "problem" with Cutter is ... he can really fit almost everywhere!



Cutter - God of Lightning ... here he is Wink - and his serious rival ... Skywise - Flash Hurler







I love how his hair imitates the sun and how his headpiece seems to bear lightnings!



Rayek - God of Fire would be great? Sure! - It's only ... I see Rayek - Child of Stone



Willowspring

wow.... Surprised

Icemoon

yay !
goooooooood !
oh, and to continue in the gods of fire, why not a goddess ?
Ember !
when she was ssssssoooooooooooooo irritating when she returned in the sunvillage, in the HiddenYears ... :D

bukittyan

Awesome gods, Embala. I especially love your lightning rivals.

And Rayek is just way cool. :D And I love how you framed each piece.

Embala

I got a little hooked on this "Cards". It's a possibility to make a series without endless reserching for pictures. And right now my leisure time is a bit limited. The frames add to the "feeling" of this series ... glad you like them, bukittyan Happy



Hard to say NO to Icemoon ... especially when the idea is really good Wink



Flaming Ember - and another God of Fire ... Bearclaw - Burning Anger







... maybe you like to visit my Avatar and Banner thread for more about the Fire Heads.



Because I believe to know what you like, Icemoon ...



Wandering Moonshade - and more about the angry chief Bearclaw - Angry Woodspirit







I love what happened to Bearclaw's ears *grin*

I just had to pop these two up again...it is said, that a true artist knows what to take off.

These two are perfect examples of that in their many-layered simplicity.
Wonderful work, Embala.

ElfTanner

Can I add you Moonshade suff to my Moonshade site? Please.

Embala

Willowspring and Icemoon - your enthusiasm is spurring. Willow, who's your favorite elf? (cannot remember)



You are always welcome here, Redhead Ember - no matter whether it's cool or caal Wink



Thank you, Moonmoss, that's a big praise - too big maybe *blushes* I know so few about how to do my "art" - following feelings mostly. These two were among my first tries ever ... loved them from the beginning and "revived" them for showing here. But I know that I'm happy you like them so much ... and proud of your compliment Happy



ElfTanner, of course you can take my Moonshade stuff for your site - this one and any which might follow. It's my pleasure Happy If possible it would be nice to link to my thread.

btw: I've "rearranged" some original pictures of Moonshade's family a bit earlier in this thread.

NerdAtWork

u do this with photoshop or something?
if u r interrested , i may give u some tips for this program, although your artworks are very nice yet...

Willowspring

Ember and tier are my top fav.
Nightfalls a close second :D

Embala

Thanks for your nice comment and the offer, Nerd. :D I'd love to learn more about your graphics - being afraid that there are some valid obstacles, tho ...



First: I'm sort of a "computer-tecnical idiot" - hating experimenting and learning slow as far as PC and software are concerned.



Second: My programm is called "ArcSoft PhotoStudio". It came with my new computer about two years ago - easy enough for me to learn by doing - at least the basics. When I believe the guy who sold me the PC it is much simpler than Photoshop (he said something like I would impossibly manage Photoshop Nuh_uh ).



Third: Ah ... this would be positive - we could pm in our mother tongue Happy



If you are still ready to explain how are you doing those graphics in general I'd be happy to learn about it. When you'll pm me - please use German. In case you decide to do a tutorial in one of your many threads I'll try to deal with English. Wink





Some variations of Skywise - not quite sure about them, but too well succeeded to throw them away



Skywise - Tangle Woods (he's looking captured somehow) and Skywise - Burned Soil







Skywise - On Fire ... guess it's rather good ... and Teir - Howling Wolffather







... for Willowspring Happy It's the only combination I could imagine - any suggestions?

Icemoon

waaaaaaaaaawose are aaaaaaamazing, as always !
skywise ...angry by the human's do...

absolutly fantastic !

teir looks nostalgic ... melancolic ...
maybe you could do a "god of dreams" ? Wink

jeb

I really like the fire one, especially the way the flames mirror the angle of his head. The others too are good, but his rage seems a little too much for the backgrounds.

Maybe the castle falling right from the beginning would be a good background for him?

Skywise on fire really works well Happy - and you are totally right about the Darkwood and Deadwood backgrounds, jeb! Nice - but not the "true" thing. Now I'm curious what you think about my final decision for Deadwood ...



but first Kahvi - Like an Avalanche ... and ... Leetah - Hurrican Temper







Was rather astonishing to notice that her wrath wasn't hot like the desert but icy cold! Surprised

The last ones are my personal favorites - not angry but sad ... touching



One-Eye - Mourning Spirit ... and his mate ... Clearbrook - Sorrow's Solitude

Very nice! I love Khavi; she looks perfect. And One-eye is just... beautiful. I think he'd cry if he saw his beloved forest like that.

Clearbrook at the frozen mountains is just perfect.
The way her hair and the ice blend Surprised

Wow! Those are all great! Especially Kahvi (but she's one of my favorite characters anyway so it's hard not to like.)

My only two thoughts would be:

1. One-Eye looks great, but for some reason I think it would be neat to use a portion a little higher up on the background. Maybe have the lake at his eye level so you get the horizon and mountains in the background. But if you did that it might loose some of its contrast and emotional impact.

2. What is on Leetah's head?! ([size=9:185270f3a6]Looks like bird poop. :( [/size:185270f3a6]) Where is that picture from?

From KoBW, when the palace returned and Rayek had grabbed Leetah to take her to Winnowill. He thought it didn't matter that Cutter was dead. Think he said something like 'He was just a breeze in your hair'. And then Leetah said 'He... was my soul!' and attacked him. So that's a speach buble (right word?). And then he let go of her and she fell down, through the roof of Shuna's hut.

And Embala, me still loves! :love:
