Todos tenemos el peso de nuestros fantasmas sobrecargando nuestra espalda. Liberémonos.

Hice el boceto a lápiz para este dibujo en el año 2003 y desde entonces ha permanecido guardado en una carpeta. Hoy hace ya ocho años que inauguré mi web, Stone Butterfly, y he decidído al fin quitarle el polvo, escanearlo y colorearlo. Allí podréis ver un par de close-ups donde se aprecian mejor algunos detalles.

Me encanta utilizar elementos de tecnología obsoleta y trozos de metal oxidado. Es de ahí de donde me viene el sobrenombre "Broken Wire" que podéis ver en la página de mi profile. En la ilustración, toda esa basura representa los conflictos del pasado. El fondo es un cielo que no deja ver la luz, pero que no da nunca el agua para que la tierra pueda beber. La intención es culpar a dichos conflictos de la situación de indefensión de la chica, que para liberarse ha arrancado la clavija que se puede ver en el suelo junto a ella. Este tipo de clavijas se suelen usar para sonido, y ésa estaba conectada al dispositivo que tiene en el cuello, lo que hacía que escuchase voces en su cabeza, voces que la culpan sin motivo y no le permiten avanzar.

Por último comentar que me habría gustado mucho contar con una modelo para esta ilustración. Las proporciones y la anatomía siguen siendo lo que más trabajo me cuesta y lo que peor me sale.

Please, why is there a bar code on her arm? :)
It she for sale?

This illustration is filled with symbols. Barcode means the number we all have, our classification in society. Cars have a number, toys have a number, houses have a number... we all have one number too. ^^

Yes. I though that's what you meant

The picture is very nice and I think I might have an idea as to what is going on, but I can't read your artist statement (can't speak Spanish, just German and English). Either way, this piece is wonderful; I like the rusted look to the mechanical stuff, makes it look old and weathered (i think?)

Sorry about Spanish comments. Rest of my gallery have Spanish comments, but people never ask the meaning in English. For this illustration, you are the third o fourth person asks about. My English is very bad to write correct comments. v_v

You can read English translation in previous comments. One thing left. This drawing was made for Stone Butterfly eighth anniversary. Stone Butterfly is my personal web page, where you can see close-ups of Kutsuu no Musa and other illustrations, as well as exclusive drawings. ^–^

Me encanta como te ha quedado. La maquinaria de la espalda esta estupenda, yo antes dibujaba mucho este tipo de dibujos, con cables, tuercas, etc etc pero me he alejado un poco ultimamente XD Lo mismo lo retomo ^^ Bueno pues eso, que te lo has currado cantidad , he estado un rato fijandome en todas las cositas que has puesto ^^ el coloreado tb esta genial, muy conseguido el efecto oxido y viejo del metal. Hala, que enhorabuena por que te ha quedado muy muy bien ^^

The mechanics of the wings look so real. It give the impression of something that would really work. The style you used is so cool! I do kinda wish it wouldn't go off the page like that. It's like a corner you can't look around, but you think there is more to see. It's still very nice though. From the little bit of the description you translated in the comments it sounds very meaningful, and for an old sketch it is very impressive. Really cool and makes me want to learn Spanish :lol:

I never, never, never draw an item without a meaning. Barcode, clock (and hour hands), antenna... all have its meaning in the illustration, but basically means "free you from the past and evolve". ^^

I'm glad you dusted off the sketch and colored it. Very moody and interesting. The bar code is jarring given the steam-punkish mechanicals but that's only my reaction.

PigSaint Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010
Yes. You're right. Barcode as well as many wires and a big led are post-vapor-energy-age items that are not really steampunk but normal cyberpunk. I have planed to draw an absolutely steampunk illustration in a near future. Thanks for your comment. It likes me very much. ^O^

Sorry about the Spanish comment. My English is not too good for write correct comments. v_v

First sentence says "All of us have the weight of our ghosts over the back. Free ourselves.".

This girl broke a wire connected to her brain. Wings made of rusty retrotech items represent the past. The past hurts and whispers her blames through the wire. The plug is in the floor, near her, and the wire is now disconnected from her. She's free. She can sleep.

Thanks for comment. ^^

Está muy bien logrado, me encanta que todos los dibujos que hacés, tienen un fundamento, no dibujás por dibujar, es muy bueno el concepto que hiciste, también el trabajo de la maquinaria, los efectos, muy buenos, me encanta que expliques por qué los hacés :clap:

Yo jamás podría dibujar maquinaria de esa manera. Me encanta. Me parece curioso que sea un boceto antiguo, porque yo a veces también miro mis carpetas viejas y encuentro bocetos a lápiz que por algún motivo deseché pero cuando los miro digo... "madre mía, si antes dibujaba mejor que ahora, incluso" jaja.
Las proporciones del cuerpo están muy bien, yo no les veo nada raro.

Muchas gracias. En realidad eran dos bocetos. El segundo tiene la parte de detrás dibujada entera, aunque al tener delante todo lo demás apenas se ve. Dibujé a esta chica en una época en la que no dibujaba tanto (o casi nada). Ahora que estoy en racha no quería dejar pasar la oportunidad de dar vida a este dibujo porque le tengo un cariño especial y significa mucho para mí, mucho más que los que quedan en aquella carpeta amarilla y que no sé si algún día haré. Tengo muchas más ideas en la cabeza que aún no están en un folio que me interesan mucho. Hasta tengo que apuntarlas. ^__^
