three shades of green by Zvyrke three shades of green by Zvyrke
Do you know how does it feel to have great ambitions, achieve great succes and then end up as great failure?
Because I do, I totally do, because I had to colour it from the scratch once again, right before Gimp decided to screw up everything and not to read the file.
Argggh!
I doubt whether I'll ever get bored of that motive.
Just imagine how devastated would Once-ler be, actually. I mean, holly shit, people who used to be on top and then hit the ground usually do crazy things. Crazy, despair-powered things, man.

Ink, printer paper, fineliner, Gimp

Swietny Art ^^ 
Po opiniach innych na temat bajki widze ze nie tylko ja, pomimo pelni przepieknych barw i przeslodkich postaci, nie powroce juz do "Loraxa". Moze to kwestia doglebnego przeslania.. bo przeciez przestawiona została realna sytuacja, codziennosc, pustka egzystencji.. no wlasnie , chyba prawda w oczy kole.

Pamiętam tą bajkę... Lorax~? Idealnie ją oddałaś Q.Q To takie smutne i takie prawdziwe, a zakończenie takie prawdopodobne...

Bajka średnio mi do gustu przypadła :) Ale ta postać i jej przedstawienie - rosnąca chciwość i to jak człowiek się zmienia - bardzo bardzo mi się podoba :) Cóż bajki mają to do siebie że "niby bajka" a jak coś to psychikę ropierniczyć potrafi X3

Szczerze mówiąc, to i mnie sama animacja dupy nie urwała, bardziej inspiruje mnie sama postać ;)

This is amazing yet frightening picture! And it is really conceptual. I like your style and the idea is just awesome. I can look for each picture for a long time and each of them brings some thoughts. I like how the background changes but Once-ler not (only his clothes). Only the atmosphere can give you a feel of changing from optimism to the total despond. And that's probably would be the real end for Once-ler if it wouldn't be a kid's cartoon because I can't imagine how a person could handle all he pressure and guilt as he did. On the other side, it means in the original plot he had a strong spirit.

Interesting concept and well-drawn... though that last image is probably going to give me nightmares. ><

This is really well-done, despite the last panel being rather terrifying...those track marks on his arm, and the Thneed noose, and the scribbles on the walls...WOW...

A depressing yet oddly beautiful piece.

you haven't drawn Once-ler for so long :D
however, the last one scares me o.O i bet IRL it would finish exactly like this

I haven't posted any drawing of him for so long ;]
yeah it probably would. Such fall would be just too much for a single person to cope with, I think.

It's like finally getting that fancy sports car you always wanted, and then ramming it into a freeway barrier when you go from sky-high to dirt-low. 

Really great expression here. It's interesting how he's pretty much in the same pose, but there's the sense of change all around him (quite obviously). Good job! :D

Exacly, also, the more you own, the more you can loose etc.

Thank you, that's just what I wanted to achieve :D

Zajebiste. Jestem pod wrażeniem. D:
Co do tego co ci się przydarzyło przy tworzeniu to szczerze współczuję... ;_; Też mi się tak kilka razy zdarzyło i myślałam, że wywalę komputer przez okno... Albo rysowanie na złej warstwie, uhhh.

No, a najlepsze, że nie mam pojęcia, jaka była przyczyna. Być może za wiele warstw czy coś [bo to robiłam trochę inaczej, nie cell shading jak tutaj, tylko próbowałam tak pocieniować, jakby było malowane, że tak powiem] utrudniło prace programowi i zaczął mi trochę przycinać w pewnym momencie, potem musiałam wyjść i zapisałam plik, jak zapisywałąm to 'program nie odpowiadał' itd a jak go otworzyłam po powrocie, to nie mogło wgl pliku otworzyć.
No miałam takie same odczucia w tym momencie jak ty xD
Tak, to boli... trzeba mieć ciągle to cholerne warstwy na oku, nie ma przebacz

I tak podziwiam, że umiesz w tym pracować - ja jak robiłam ten świąteczny obrazek co cię prosiłam o pomoc to miałam dość po kilkunastu minutach. I też mi się co chwilę ten Gimp zawieszał...
Cóż, PS też mi czasem crashnie, ale na szczęście nie uszkadza wtedy pliku tak że nie można go otworzyć. Tak jak pisałam też miałam kilka takich akcji z błędami zapisu, ale na szczęście rzadko, a głównym winowajcą był wtedy jakiś tam program, który akurat w momencie zapisu zawiesił system. ._.

Thank you.
I think that character (and such characters, in general, with such story and development) give great opportunity for that kind of drawings/stories/interpretations :D
