I don't come from... a forest by AquaSixio I don't come from... a forest by AquaSixio


First drawing : I don't come from a city 1/6
Second drawing : I don't come from a jungle 2/6
Third drawing : I don't come from the ocean 3/6

The forth part :

I don't come from a forest

The goat was born on a Canadian meadow,
Green and fresh like an emerald sea,
A land adorned with maple rubies,
Perfect, quiet and enchanted forests,
Boring and foreseeable jade paradise,
He left to understand what is life.

" This is a place where you will find peace,
Just stretch yourself out and feel the sun,
Rocked by the the chilly northern wind,
Trees offer us food, shelter and rest,
You will easily take root on this earth,
and write the last chapter of your quest. "

For the first time Marlon was wondering,
what if the goat was right ? the end of the trip...
It seems to be the place he was looking for,
But this quest... he decided to lie to them :
" Thank you, but I don't come from a forest, let's go... "
As soon as Marlon has finished his sentence,
The three birds were proposing a new place...

Time: 22 hours
Software: Photoshop cs2
Character: Marlon LostRoot

Wonderful series, I loved the stories... sometime the quest seems better than the destination. Amazing

These two seem so similar but so different.
Great work along with so many of your others! I love the idea behind this "it came from the jungle" concept.

Indeed, years after years, my style changed :/ it doesn't look similar

:) I wasn't suggesting it as a bad thing, they both just have a similar feel behind them. Again, fantastic work and I love so many of your pieces.

Laying on the grass, looking up to the night sky, hopeful, wishful, dreamful. I'm that little boy still! Thank god for that.

This work is beautifully presented and is simply wonderful... I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you for that.

Congratz for this great piece.

I'm entranced by the boy's wishful and somewhat melancholy expression. This is really wonderful, as always.
