Sounds like pretty good advice. Do I smear it around after it drools on the paper, or just leave it as chunks of liquid goo?

Extreme Unction-- The trial of Pastor Kyle

The little village of Salazene (fictitious, so dont go looking to visit there :p) has been catapulted over-night into the national lime light.
A standoff in the church has ended in a blood bath.

The victim, Pastor Kyle, beloved by many, revered by all, lies dead in a pool of blood.
His widow has committed this act. Under threat of death, she had demanded a public confession from him. She did not get it. What could this man, a pillar of the community have to confess to?. He is indeed a saint amongst men. He must be unlucky in his choice of women. This is his third wife. Such a quiet and great woman.

Said the Widow: Do not look at me with such judgement in your eyes. When my time comes, I will answer to my maker. Your leader indeed was a black heart. You have not seen the sorrow in my heart and the bruises you cannot see. Pull your children aside and have ask of them the secrets in their hearts. Today, the cycle must stop.


**Author Edit: Please if you are a victim of abuse, you must report to the authorities or seek help from proper channels. This story does not advocate taking the law into your own hands.**

This is just an extreme doodle of one of the main character. I am still trying to work out the kind of look she'll have. Frail but strong. Also the scene, whether it will be inside the church or outside at the door steps.

This doodle of course is to make break in my brush ..
LOL,
what do you think of the concept.? Too violent?

Inevitably, it's a very good story, very strong, very powerful, the written message is clear and comprehensible of all.
I imagine already a certain image in my head, like a vision, which is already enough precise.
I would be extremely curious to see your interpretation, and especially the composition which you could make.
If you continu in this way, that will be very interesting to follow, especially to see and iunderstand the way in which you will transmit the message visually.
Cheer, and especially good work :applause:

I guess he died a spectacular death... I'm all curious!!! :thumbsup:
I have this pic of a woman who killed her man, 'cos he left her no choice. Torn between feelings of revenge and sorrow... I think if you can capture this it will turn into a powerful piece. Her act alone will be spectacular :)

Thanks a bunch Lemog , Becca, Marlon, Ly and Sir Squibs.

The difficulty will of course be in translating the years of abuse, her frustration and finally being driven into self help, into the painting. I'll start working out the sketch of the arena this weekend.
I am wondering what will be make for more impact, hacking him to death with a knife or a gun?

Llynna
09-09-2005, 10:19 PM
hm, the knife will be more personal and is said to be a womans weapon for personal revenge. i big shotgun wouldnt suit her.

Art2
09-09-2005, 10:24 PM
I agree, a knife, scissor or blunt weapon (heavy candelstick) makes it more private and personal ... I sound like a ... serial killer...

welcome queeeeeeny! good luck to you!

thereīs already a lot going on in here! soooooo cruel! hahah and really funny to read all the "down-to-earth" kind of discussion about which weapon is best :D

--> i agree with the knife being more personal than a gun.. maybe a tiny small knife.. so the viewer would have to look around to understand whats going on.. and some tiny bloodstains on her dress.. *inspiration carries me away* :)

great concept! iīll be around!

What about stabbing with broken glass? Something more primal and yet delicate.

TheFirstAngel
09-24-2005, 02:02 AM
Your idea is deep and very touching. twisting the religios thing and adding just my little though here to art2's serial killer sugestions, a nice thing to kill the evil pastor could have been maybe some kinda relict or the cup they drink the wine out of it...
but more than the what buged me a small thing i wanted to bring in, the where could help your story. if he has a room where he took her, trought the mirror you could decently show the past, or, trough "fogs of time"... hope that makes sense, so you can show a scene in the scene, maybe also as a reflection in the blood?...
uhm. now i sound like a syko pet, don't i :sad: ... hope some of these thoughts may be of any help. keep up the great work :)

@Sacha: I am kind of liking the idea of the weapon not just being a regular knife. hmmm
