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.

-No more that 2 entries per member (In accord to the general tradition).

-I have no prob with pornography but I know that a lots of people doesn’t like it, so, not to hurt them, you can draw nudity but don’t fall in vulgarity please!

-I think you would not do it,because I know you’re genuine artist but I write it down to be clear… Do not steal art or copy, the entries has to be yours or done in couple with a declared artist ( I mean you can submit a drawing done with a friend and you can say "I've done the line and my friend brenda coloured it", no prob)

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…
