The 4th Doctor
Since I uploaded the 2nd Doctor, I couldn't resist putting up my other favorite, the 4th Doctor. ^_^ Jelly Baby, anyone?

2nd Doctor
About a year or two back I took up a large commission - that is still going on - that involved me making almost all the Doctors. The Second Doctor is one of my most successful. ^_^

Barbarian
(Long post, but it has a story I put on Facebook. ^_^ Though the story was written October 2nd, 2014, I made the picture yesterday.)

Your eyes slowly open, aware that something is in the room with you. The fact does not surprise you. Being in a 1200's European cottage with not much money for rent, you can be assured that there is a rat or two bunking in the walls or in the corner.
... but that does not explain the pain in your mouth.
Suddenly a liquid reaches your throat and you gag, sitting up and spewing out said liquid, the moonlight revealing that it is a dark, thick liquid. It does not take you long to realize that it is blood. Again, you are not surprised, though now you wonder for a few seconds how long you will have to live, having shown a sign of a fatal but common disease in the early Feudal age.
... but again, as your tongue explores your mouth, you find that you have not the disease - not yet, anyway - but you have had a tooth extracted forcibly from your mouth, and you are bleeding from the orifice.
You look around, wondering who on earth would have been able to accomplish this without waking you up. You look around from your cot at your sparse room, making a subtle note to warn the landlord that the rats steal teeth now when your when your eyes fall on something shiny in the far left corner beside your candle and stack of books you were generously given. After squinting, you realize it is a wing... like a dragonfly's wing... and that the wing is connected to a body no bigger than the candle that it is standing behind.
You inadvertently gasp, and the little creature suddenly bolts, holding a small leather sack in its arms. (You have a rising suspicion what is contained within the sack.) You jump off your cot and scramble to the window that the creature has flown out of, the window open just a crack. You yank it open and look in despair as the creature lands daintily - mockingly - on the tree just outside. You are almost close enough to stretch out and catch it up in your hands, but you know in your heart it will just jump away again with that dragonfly speed.
It turns to you and speaks in a foreign language, sounding like a squeaking cart wheel and bells. It laughs - an almost beautiful sound if it was not laughing at you. You now see it is a tiny womanly form with black cropped hair, with sparkling eyes that twinkle. It sways the bag back and forth slowly, taunting you. You look closer, and you notice that all items that are not leather or leaf are a bright white accessory keeping the parts together. You realize it is ivory... teeth.
With another quip and a laugh, the fairy is gone into the night. You gaze out the window for a while, wiping your mouth with your sleeve. Your friends will not believe this and you do not have any proof...
But wait.
As you turn back to your desk with your candle and books, you notice a small object. Upon examination, you realize that it is a dagger. A dagger made of ivory.
Now you have your proof. Somewhat. You set the dagger in the middle of your desk for easy spotting, but, thinking a little more, you remove it and place it under the cover and a few pages of your top book, in case the fairy decides to come back.
You make your way back to your cot and dab at your mouth again. Questions have arisen in your mind, the main one being this: What kind of fairy would steal a tooth?!



One of the biggest misnomers of the English language is the word "barbarian". Barbarian defined:
1. a person in a savage, primitive state; uncivilized person.
2. a person without culture, refinement, or education; philistine.
3. (loosely) a foreigner.
4. a non-Greek. A person living outside, especially north of, the Roman Empire. a person not living in a Christian country or within a Christian civilization.
5. (among Italians during the Renaissance) a person of non-Italian origin.
Notice that two of those definitions simply mean "not of this certain culture". The Japanese when they were still coping with the fact they could no longer eschew themselves from the rest of the nations of the earth they called anyone not Japanese barbarians. (So my highschool textbook said...)
The Pixila Dente "barbarians" are of types 1 and 4, being apart from the "Utopian" Pixila Dente culture, education, and refinement. But don't underestimate them. Even if you can't understand their language - which interestingly enough sounds like Swahili but spoken by bells and cart-wheels - you can tell they're brilliant and intelligent. You might even be able to make friends with them.
Just keep a hand over your mouth and don't fall asleep with them around, unless you're really good friends. Because they are still Tooth Fairies, but they are not bound by any silly obligation to wait around for a tooth to fall out. There was a war between the Utopians and the Barbarians in the Victorian era over a little town called London. This is nothing new, there have been races to collect the teeth of individuals. Sometimes the Barbarians get the best teeth because they didn't wait around for tooth decay to claim them. For now, there is a peace between the two races, though in Canada the regions where hockey is played is still a disputed ground.

Technical notes:
I wanted to convey the differences but similarities between the two races of Pixila Dente. The Barbarians are more geared towards marshes, lakes, even rain forests, hence the camouflage style coloring and the fortified wings, usually used for swimming and diving. (Pearls and some types of seaweed are useful to these people.) I was going to make her look more fierce and crafty, but then I went for the intelligence they usually conveyed. As you'll see in the story, to some tribes of the Barbarians, we are just big stupid lugs, not even sport when asleep. As usual, this queenly figure - though I'm not sure if she's the "queen" of her tribe, more like matron - was made in DAZ Studio and postworked heavily in GIMP 2.

Vynelle Gramaphen
Made 4-20-15

The thing about the elven peoples was that, until about two hundred years ago, a regular late 1300'er would have called them primitive and sorcerous. Thanks to the 100 Year War between the Elves, Saryphs, and Humans - which was thanks to the utter recklessness of Robert the Bruce, more on that later - most of the elves transposed themselves onto Earth, being caught in the middle of the declared war between the Saryphs and the Humans. Only through the Lenape, the gathered tribes of North America and their Overchief was this ultimate crisis resolved and the idea of Triune was born, their magic giving Triune life and light, augmented into Magitech by the Saryphs. Now some of the elves enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Like Vynelle Gramaphen, one of the younger of the elves. She thoroughly enjoyed the fascinating "magic" of science and technology and indulged in it, much to her contemporaries' disdain. They preferred to keep the purity of the elves, using their magic to bring music over the winds and grow plants, not wander in giant isolated halls for baubles or putting weird objects on their heads. Not only did Vynelle love her tunes, but she was a decent DJ herself and knew exactly where the appropriate shops were in the Saryphian mall in CumuloCity.
Before actually getting to Triune, though, she enrolled in the Triune Institute, a "primer" to the circles and way of living in Triune. There she had a roommate who, at first impressions, was stuck-up and introversive. When Vynelle dug deeper, she found a scared young woman who really had no idea how to interact with others. This she made her mission at the Institute and although it cost her some dignity sometimes - which, to be fair, she was flexible with - she and Octavia became best of friends.

On a technical note, I used Stonemason's Utopia Labs - thought it was an appropriate backdrop for the counter-intuitive elf. I'm tired enough to not remember the exact names tonight, perhaps I'll add them later.

So, I haven't uploaded in a while, much to my discredit I suppose. I have been working on quite a few things, and even though I love my work outside of DeviantART, it does exhaust me and I soon forget to put a picture on, even if I want to.
So, how about a challenge, eh? Any pictures you all would like me to revisit? (I'm practicing with IRay, the new physics render engine of DAZ Studio 4.) Anything new you'd like me to make?

I am a Gentleman and the Dreamer, the Knight and the Writer.
I forever will be the hoper of far-flung hopes and dreamer of impossible dreams.
I am the big brother and the father figure.
I am...running out of stuff to say...

Oh well! As of right now I'm 20 years old which is liable to change in a year or two. As I said in my little free-verse up there I love making my own little universes by writing and drawing them. I love discussing with people about ideas and stories and offering suggestions...
...I like Macaroni and Cheese?

Creations of the Mind
Have you ever had a character in your mind that you wanted to have an adventure with? Has a place bloomed in the corners of your mind and you have wished to explore it? The mind is a wondrous thing, but it is even more fantastic when combined with imagination, but sometimes the imagination is limited to physical talent.
I have found that some of the most awesome experiences one could have is to read about their own character gallivanting across the plains of their imagination, watching them meet and excel challenges.
Dear readers, I have been writing for a while now, have published four stories in two anthologies and now give you this offer: I will bring your character(s) to life in a story that is at least 500 words long. All you have to do is give me the place, time, character personalities/looks and conflict/resolution. I also ask for you to tell me how much "creative license" I can have; what kind of buffer zone I can use in my recreating the world that is in your head.
I have found that I do my best writing in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres, but I love stepping up to the challenge of others! I only ask that it not be erotic -- I'm not very good at that, nor wish to write in that genre.
Other than that, I cannot wait to see what challenges arise!
Keep creating!

Gabriel-C
