I bring you... the embrace of FEAR (smaller res) by IosifChezan
I bring you... the embrace of FEAR (smaller res)
My warlock entry  for Outcast Odyssey Card Master Challenge - smaller resolution, clearer view, re-balanced.

[the high resolution images could lose details/clarity when are displayed smaller on Da gallery, so i added a smaller resolution and clearer view in my eyes. Also a smooth re-balance of contrasts / focus was done ]

Here is the original entry for the contest: I bring you... the embrace of FEAR

Vision gift from the peaks of my soul... by IosifChezan
Vision gift from the peaks of my soul...

This is the gift for my little children, David and Alexandra: a short story named "Tale of Butterflies and Worms" in which they are the main characters, shaping them as inspiring heroes of my mind. They venture inside a magic universe where the Beauty and the Grotesque of the world  are symbolically personified. They are pushed through a series of meaningful  quests and adventures to conquest their own awareness and inner nobility, shifting between two symbolic dimensions:
    The first is the world of Worm-Emperor of Egoism with servants as Deception, Tyranny, or Greed, each of those commanding lower servants as Ignorance... Poverty, Avarice and Lust... Terror and Cruelty, Fury, Hate and Envy...  and Death.   
    The second dimension is the catharsis world of Pure-Heart (the father of the David and Alexandra) hidden in a book away of the  any savagery or blind power. There are places like:
- The Tower-up-to-the-Sky springing down a living water (symbol of inspiration, hope and cure of fear)... 
- The Tree of Life and Abundance (symbol of unlimited resources) ...
- The Forest with Portals to the Living Stories of Passed Times (symbol of human civilization and knowledge inheritance,  of education and wisdom)...
- The Stars of Unborn Worlds (symbol of freedom to manifest subjectively and of inner satisfaction)...
- The Arena of Imagination inside the Amphitheatre of Creativity (symbol of shared and combined creative powers of humanity as a whole )

I will add here a small part where they are prepared to enter inside a story portal as depicted above (the translation in english is mine, so excuse the possible clumsiness):
<< There, somewhere deep in the heart of the forest, the violaceous light was bursting around from anywhere, bathing with temptation the charmed looks of two children in front of one of the portals.

    Bas-reliefs of lights and shadows were dancing in the violet of portal, as if would try to escape before being dragged back inside, conceiving in their struggle unearthly monsters spreading terror and fearless knights fighting to the death… grandiose castles and ruins in flames… glitters of dazzling treasures and heavy chains on human’s necks… wings of light and twirls of darkness… butterflies and worms. On the rock from which the light of portal was springing, there were deeply carved the words: “The story of Pure-Heart and Worm Emperor, or about the dark side of humans”

    With bathing eyes inside the waters of curiosity and thirst for knowledge, the two children were remembering past journeys through other portals with living stories, telling about unimagined wonders of the human world… about love and sacrifice, honesty and justice… about enlightened men with beautiful souls, bearing love and understanding for humanity. Sometimes on the contrary, the stories were narrating about unimaginable horrors and shameful deeds of men, staining their existence into the world… about untruth and injustice, wars and hate… about bloodthirsty kings and oppressed nations,  ruined lives and ingratitude. All these and many others were weaved inside the guiding living stories beyond the charmed violet curtains of the portals, alluring to be discovered and understood.

    “-Let’s go, David, let’s enter the portal!”, incited the girl with little raised eyebrows of impatience and happiness.

    “-Very well, Alexandra! Let’s dive into the portal, dear sister, as in a dream, and we would let ourselves enfolded in a new story to understand its wisdom”, whispered the glowing boy with smiling eyes, then both stepped inside.

    -I bid you welcome,… Come, dare!, sounded an unseen voice, deep and warm as that of a grandfather’s  aside his nephews, whispering with a smile on his lips a bedtime story. I am Mnemos, the spirit of Stories from the Stone Forest, and I will guide you through the tale of Pure Heart and the Worm Emperor. In other stories you probably would have heard of the world’s beauties, about the artistry and ingenuity of men… how some could be kind-hearted, generous, forgiving and understanding, and others could be black-hearted, greedy, full of wickedness, malevolence and deception. But have you ever asked yourself what could be the root of evil in human beings, what causes the division, what brakes the friendship, what ravels the love, what turns humans in bloodthirsty monsters full of greed and deceit ? Have you asked yourself why harmony does not hold over humans but very rarely, even then with a certain end? Well, let’s search with open mind for at least a part of the answer to all these. It is said that once upon a time…, and while the words were springing as a caress upon their ears, the two children suddenly felt as their legs were getting off the ground into a soft floating, and vivid scenes began to come forth alive in front of their eyes. >>

The tools i used are Photoshop and A4 tablet (and as i write my mind is invaded of a magical sensation... imagining what an artistic bliss could be while painting on a Wacom Cintique surface... well,  yet an untouched goal... )
