Pangaea - They by silvestris Pangaea - They by silvestris
Pangaea: These are graphics I once used in an older design for my website, inspired my Pangaea. I rather liked the feel of the images and put them together. Recently re-discovered them and figured with the lack of updates lately, old art is better than no art at all.

In the original design, each character represented a time of day. I love playing with symbolism, and this is how theirs worked out.

Rannon. Morning. Chill, mists, desaturated light, beginnings. Focus, ice, control. Steel.
Maqaxha. Mid-day. Summer heat, burning sun, pounding pulse. Fire. Blood. Cinnamon and jungle rhythm.
Lapis Lazuli. Evening. Intoxication, hues of blue, perfume and decadence. Twillight and pleasure in the dark.
Rylerion. Night. Bleak moonlight, ashes, eternity. Barren darkness. Loneliness, emptiness.

Media used: Mechanical pencil, Corel Photopaint 9, Wacom tablet.
Characters and images are silvestris (me) and my NOT be used in any way without my permission.

Hey, it's Lazuli-sama, lol! I remember him from when I used to check out our art on Elfwood. xD I remember this one, it's great! :dance: :+fav:

Yeah, that's cool! :nod: I thought he was yours, though, for a minute I thought he might be Sam Hogg's...uh, but I don't even know if you know her, I haven't been to Elfwood in so long, lol. ^^; But I'm assuming now that Lazuli's your own character...right? Damn, I coulda sworn he was Sam Hogg's! ()@@ :XD:

i always love your pangea artwork. your site only makes me want more of them. i like how the lines are so light and overlap the characters. the hazy softness of the picture works well and is a little different for you. the falling leaves are interesting and tie the panels together even more. not really as detailed as other pics of yours, but still really interesting. even if you never feel Pangea is "complete" enough to put it all down on paper or the like, i really enjoy the bits of it we get to see. thank you for sharing your world with us.

I think we lost touch in discussing your commission a while back - are you back home, so communications might work more easily?

You're welcome. ^_^ Any chance that Pangaea will be posted at some later date? It seems very interesting, based on the charecters you've created for it.

silvestris Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2004
Heh, well, 'later' as in 'within a decade or three' and the answer is 'maybe'. ;)
I've been keeping this world as a hobby project/imaginary friend/inspiration for about 14 years, and I still don't feel it's complete enough to nail down on paper.
There are some written little snippets and such at the Pangaea Website, though, but that's about it. <.)

wow silvy, thats such an original way to merge the characters together, and very fitting to their personalities.. did you come up with that while developing them, or was it something that suddenly occured to you? Either way, it's rather shrewd genius.

And you know what this would look fantastic as? A japanese style screen with fours panels that could be folded away, on that kind of parchmentesque paper of that same fawny colour. Rion looks especially pretty here, but then I'm really drawn to maxaqua too, just something about his pose that suggests a certain carefree nature.

It's lovely to see some of your older work... and new stuff would be nice too! *hinthintcough*
