loneliness of 1000 years by 1-Renaissance loneliness of 1000 years by 1-Renaissance
I was listening to the song "loneliness of a thousand years" performed by Revolution Renaissance. Loved it.

And this aging mouse playing a wind instrument in the autumn forest is what came into mind when listening to it, especially the intro.







================================
I own the picture, not the song that inspired it.

He's not Redwall, but of my own creation, inspired by the concept of Redwall's sentient animals. I guess he's a hermit. Yeah, I'll make him a Buddhist from Tibet.

Awww, such a sad pic. This looks like it was before the fall of Kotir - maybe just after the rebellion against Greeneyes. I love the beams of light and the hollow look of the forest (no greenery, I mean).

It does look morose in a way but the forest seems forgiving. This might be my favorite sketch.

Thanks!

Yeah, the light through the trees makes it look hopeful. Softens the tree trunks. I like it!

Thanks. :D The filtered light here was the first time I did that effect. It was done by eraser when the trees were finished.

Very beautiful pencil drawing! Especially I like the mouse in the foreground and that rather sad lyrical mood which betrays this drawing. There is an association with Gonff from the book "Mossflower"
=)

Thank you. :D You think this has a connection with Gonff? Heh, heh, from what I've read it's not likely that he can sit still in silence for a minute. :D Unless he's old like this. :D

Eh, methinks that I like it. :D

I like the idea of a lone musician in a remote location, playing his heart out when only himself and the trees can hear. I thought it was cool how the musician's eyes focused on the fallen leaves on the ground in front of him, as if he was drawing inspiration for his music from the fading memories of a past that he can neither go back to or change...

Topping! :D :D

And thanks. :D

Haha thanks... My younger sister says that I can see a fascinating story in just about anything, but I am apparently too lazy to jot any of it down... :D

And no problem. It was indeed good. I liked the bricks a lot. :D Hopefully I'll be able to upload something tonight or tomorrow perhaps.

Thank you! :D

I had some misgivings about the sunbeams because I wasn't sure I was doing it right if there was a right way.

I bet here is where you can just separate yourself from society and think :meditation:.......Then the ADHD kicks in.....CRUNCHY LEAVES!!!! :boogie::boogie::boogie:

Such a simple (in a sense) picture, but with great detail as well, with the light falling through the trees, the forest floor, the mouse's old, seasoned look...

Oh my goodness, talk about FC. :wow:. I just love the way you do these things. The feel, the detail, the lighting. Dang it's unlike anything I have seen. I don't know how people could critique things like this. Oh the necks too long, the arms are disproportioned. FIE!!!! This is awesome. I bet he loves playing that fife, or recorder, or whatever that wind instrument is. I feel I could really relate to this mouse. Go to some quite solitary place, feel the calm serenity that is the beautiful atmosphere, and lavish myself in peace, calmness, and tranquility. I could absolutely smell it :aww:

I would figure you already have since you drew it. I've been there many times. In a sense. Cuz I really take in all the beauty around me when in these situation. Just inhale, and exhale, open your eyes, and soak it all in. The last time I did this I spent the entire lunch period walking from the library to the cafeteria in the rain. Looking up at the sky and contemplating. And singing. About 20 min of getting wet and singing, and I would gladly do it again. That and I was talking with God, so I wasn't lonely. :)
