The long Intro...

Pastkeeper is a story centered on the importance of culture and language, I was thinking about the discover of the rosetta stone and what we learned about the past from the decoding of ancient languages and what more we leave for the future since it was used to leave a sign. So while I was brainwashed by my litterature study I gave birth to this story. After a nuclear disaster (such as the one which distoyed the world in Hokuto no ken XXXDDD) people lived strangely as a primitives in a colony in the middle of the nuclear desert. Why they weren’t try to turn back to normality? Why they didn’t build houses? Why they didn’t move to a better place? Because they forgot. But somebody remembers how was before, they’re called Pastkeepers and they’re whorshipped as precious treasures by the people. You may ask: “but if they know, why they don’t lead the people to a betterlife?” because they live under a blind dictatorship, and they’re not allowed to talk and express their ideas and to tell the people what they know…. Ok I wan’t bother you more because the story is a little Philosophycal but I hope this long description would help you with the competition….

-Draw as your spirit leads you. Play with my characters, you can draw one or two or the whole trio together. I like to see what comes from you.

She’s a curious girl, shy and intelligent, she doesn’t see herself as a girl in the community but as a untouchable entity without gender, it’s the motive she feels unconfortable with her feelings for somebody…

2008-09-06 [Future Dictator]: hows florence? school has art program there i want to do

some day i'll cross that annoying alantic ocean *fistshake*

2008-09-07 [WonderTweek]: Interesting.
Yeah I assumed not every place in Italy would be like Rome taking into account that Rome = HUGE tourist attraction.
But I was curious, thanks for informing me :3

2008-09-10 [5thwitch]: well, florence is more rome-like but i've never been to florence so i can't tell you if it's hugely influenced by the tourist industry... i think that it's incredibly difficult for a tourist to capture the real spirit of a city when it's so full of people that is not born or doesn't live there.

2008-09-11 [WonderTweek]: Exactly.
Like when I'm in Munich, it's so difficult to just walk by the Glockenspiel because everyone's so fasinated by it, it's like a pile of people XD, I mean yeh I've watched the little story once, but after that t's just another part of the city to me.

2008-09-17 [Future Dictator]: sooo... anyone won

2008-09-17 [WonderTweek]: I..dunno XD

2008-09-20 [ririmu_chan]: yesterday was talk like a pirate day. did anyone talk like a pirate? oh, that reminds me of a joke
what does a pirate and a pimp have in common? they both say yoho!

2008-09-21 [WonderTweek]: XD

2008-09-22 [5thwitch]: Hi my sweethearts, i wanted to tell you that i didn't forgot. it's just that very nicely my university anticipated of about 20 days the date to present the degree final work, so this weeks I had to work on it, hope to solve all before the weekend. Sorry!

2008-09-22 [Future Dictator]: take your time :) my university loves to give me tons of work too :P

2008-09-23 [ririmu_chan]: homework? well i work from home does that count? lol

2008-10-11 [ririmu_chan]: hum almost two months and no one has won... Hey i think everyones a winner! yeay. (we were all winners before i just felt like pointing that out) oh and while i am thinking bout it... darklaw, what did you use to do the inking? I have been looking for a good inking pen and have yet to find one. please tell me? please?

2008-10-11 [WonderTweek]: Yeah, everyone did a wonderful job on these I think.I love how everyone's is so unique and beautiful in their own way.
Cept for mine XD I got all lazys on it <<;

2008-10-11 [ririmu_chan]: not uh. you did more on a computer then i could dream of doing Sternenlicht! you computer skills are > then mine. a lot better! trust me the collest thing i can make on a computer is a pie graph and i dont think thats something to gloat about. *hey everyone i can make a pie graph* see not very cool. but you, you can make a whole piece of art with structure and color. very cool. so dont shoot yourself down bout it. if there was a computer art contest between you and i um umless it was a pie graph contest people would say "whats with the pie graph entry?" lol for what its worth i think you did an awesome job along with everyone else. It takes a lot of guts to put your own art up to be judged by other people.

2008-10-12 [WonderTweek]: Aww thanks ^^
Just for that, I'mma start a pie graph art contest, you'll be sure to win! XD

2008-10-12 [Future Dictator]: mmmm...pie......

2008-10-13 [5thwitch]: Well, as you said, everyone won! BTW [pianista] and me decided the winners but i'm still doing the pages with the winners and a gallery of all the drawings, it should be finished in 2 days.

2008-10-13 [ririmu_chan]: yeay! Sternenlicht keep me posted on that pie graph contest. lol um pie does sound good. I think i will have some for breakfeast.
