Life and Death by ApollinArt Life and Death by ApollinArt
I don't know if this is my best artwork yet  but it's certainly the most meaningful to me. I've always wanted to write a book. I used to be a storyteller back when I was a Ghost Tour Guide( Yes, it's a thing) and I had a jotter filled with storytelling ideas, but I never got round to ACTUALLY writing a proper children's book. Why? Because writing is hard and I have no experience in the matter.

I always had this idea for a story in a world of allegories. Time, Justice, Life, Death are physical characters in this world I imagined.

Here is what the cover of such book ( If it ever does exist) looks like. If you're wondering what Life and Death are doing, yup they're on a journey to save a human kid.

I hate being one of these people, but the result of my master thesis literally depends on it, (sorry for the spam)…please read my post and share your opinions with me.

If for some reason you don’t want it to be public please send me a message.

My paper deals with deviantART as a “democratic” platform, as a promoter of culture. To what extent it is democratic is the question? For more details read the journal. If you have any questions please feel free to ask! Any feedback helps! :D

Beautiful and evocative pic with rich yet soft and subtle colours.

The boy has a curious if somewhat mischievous look on his face, and the girl (I guess she is the one who symbolizes Life?) seems a tad nervous.

I have author ambitions, too, and I have written (and drawn) some stuff with various personifications of natural forces, emotions, languages, and such, but there is so much going on in life that it is hard to finish any of the stories that I have started. The best tips I can give  is to make sure to set some time aside each day to write (and not give up if the first draft turns out to be less than good), and read a fair lot to find concepts and such that one can experiment with.

Love this! Your drawings are beautiful. My cousin usually writes for television shows and has two little girls.  I'm sure he would love to write this with you.  We also have a contact at Roman Films and Netflix if you want to take any of your ideas into animation. Feel free to send me a message any time.

Life asked death, "Death? Why do people love me but hate you?" So death said, "Because you are a beautiful lie and I am the painful truth." 

Great work this is amazing!!

Haha ca jette un froid c'est sur, cela dit merci du compliment! Je ne sais pas si tu comprends bien l'anglais ou pas mais j'explique tout en dessous! Ce sont des idees de conte pour enfants, un monde ou les allegories ( la vie, la mort, le temps) sont des personnages physiques. Vala.

Looks very impressive.  Great looking characters , some terrific colors and shading, awesome depth to the piece.  I'd go with fantastic.  And as a side note I took one of those Ghost Tours in Seattle I believe it was.

Thanks for submitting to :iconsharpenededge:.  Have a great weekend. :) (Smile)

This is a nice illustration, the art style and colors in particular look lovely~!

I think you'd do good if you decide to write a children's book!

Although, If you need help with writing you could buy a book or look up writing tips, but what I think helps more than anything is reading a lot and taking notes on the writing of the author. Nice work nonetheless! :)
