My entry for FOTOLIA "Plans Gone Wrong Contest"
Somewhere far away,... in a world of magic tales flowing out imagination into visual, three little Pandas - RED, SLICE, and GREEDY, were wandering the skies into their invincible flying pirate ship, "Pies Hunter".
After looting entirely an apparently abandoned island hiding the most precious treasure in the galaxy in that moment - an endless stack of hot pies with devastating aroma, - the three little pirates were preparing to leave with joy in eyes and "tasty joy" in their mouths.
...But how could they ever imagine how "troubling" and hard to keep would be their precious booty on the back home... Because they took ALL the favorite prey of the Pie Addicted Dragons, hardly looted from all the human villages around that day.
You can see the scene in the painting, frozen with magic of imagination. From this "still point of view" you can slide slowly back and forward in time, adding symbols of your own, to wave the whole story in your own vision you would enjoy to begin or to end ...
NOW, if you need few details whispered by the wind of this tale, here there are:
P A N D A H E R O E S :
One of them was the intelligent and always inventive Flight Master and Cannoneer of the ship - "RED" , called like that maybe because of always wearing his one eye red glasses. He does not talk at all, and only express himself by the color of the light he put on his head helmet : "green light"- means to be active and joyful every second,... "red light"- means he is scared to death and that will froze himself in place an entire day,... and yellow light means he is unpredictable and have the worse or the most genial ideas.
Another one of the three little pandas wandering the skies in seek of adventures and any kind of "tasty pies booty" , is the fierce Pirate Captain "SLICE". He is unbeatable in slicing pies with a frown eye, in "Lion parts" for him, and "little parts" for the rest. Also he behave ferocious as a true lion when it comes to share his "tasty slices" with anyone else, no matter who.
The third little hero, is Scout Chief Prospector "GREEDY". His name originate in his endless appetite for gathering all the "PIES treasures of the world" leaving nothing behind of what he "discover precious" for him and his companions. He is also the main reason for why the whole scene depicted is happening, for burdening with too much Pies the flying ship until the lowest speed.
D R A G O N S :
The Pie Addicted Dragons have one distinctive mark: they have hypnotizing Turquoise eyes! They are fierce looking and beautiful colored, but they have no flames or magic to spit. Their weakness are hot fresh Pies made by skilful humans. They dont eat flesh, dont steal domestic animals, but terrorize every village with Pie cooking aroma until they get what they want ...
This is a dedication also to my Little Wonderful Daughter Alexandra, who feed my mind with such a pleasure to create, seeing her how she wonders of the each tiny development of the scene, idea, color and funny element, and listening with fascination the little collateral stories i waved only for her around this painting, while creating it ...
