Hello

Here’s the latest scripting and artwork for chapter 08 the CHASE πŸ™‚ Comments are always welcome πŸ™‚ enjoy

 

chapter 08 – the CHASE

Like a wall around me

I was getting backed into a corner. Everything in life was linking together, mystery’s that were an incoherent random mess became a series of intertwining logical answers, I bridged the gap. The rain sounded like static as nature complimented technology. Two large stones on each of the sides represents the worlds, The top shows the link between them, the swapping of conciousness, the balance. It’s made out of blue stone and positioned to form a giant circle, infinity, the loop. It’s now obvious to me that our ancestors knew about the binding balance of reality. The gun was pointed straight at me, I had no time to turn the terminal off. My mind blacked out, and instinct took over. All I remember is running, for the life of me I didn’t know where, I just ran through as many doorways, corridors and passageways that I could, hoping I would lose him, I heard a gun shot, but how did he miss? he was point blank, he would be my undoing. I wasn’t transfixed by the beam any more, I was on the train, getting taken for a ride, as it kept on track, running off the rails. I was running through the modern day Stonehenge, escaping reality at gunpoint. Everything was looking like the circle of life now, having the answers right in front of me, realising before I wasn’t asking the right questions. I held Pandora’s box tight as I ran, the only thing each of us had left, our own personal curse. I was to be the voice inside his head or the monkey on his back. When I passed through the light at the end of the tunnel, it transfixed me, gave me a baptism of fire. I reached the top of the warehouse, I had nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, nowhere to go and there was no turning back. I was to be tested, and I had to commit or be committed. I was the man of his word. I was ready to end it, at the end of the road, at end of my tether. Something broke my fall, it obviously wasn’t my time, I’d been given a second chance, a new beginning, a re-birth. I looked around outside the warehouse, it was grim, desolate. I kept running for what seemed like eternity, through woodland, fields, across roads, everything. I found myself in the back garden of someone’s house, they were returning home. He looked straight at me, I had to say something. The only person that seemed to know what was happening had turned and was trying to shot me, I couldn’t trust anyone. It just came out like a reaction, I said what was at the forefront of my mind. “Who do you trust?”. The man didn’t say anything, he just walked inside. I had to get going, my demons would soon catch up with me.

07 the GUN – Script and Artwork

Hello πŸ™‚

Here’s Chapter 07 the GUN artwork and full scripting πŸ™‚

chapter 07 – the GUN

Eyes have not seen and ears have not heard

The information had eyes, glaring over my shoulder. The balance between opposites transcends nature and into technology, instead of the male and female, you have your ones and zeros, the binding of star matter, it’s all singing the same song. It confirms what the man told me, I wish I had been lied to. It was almost word for word to what the man said.

You must remember your memories on the other world, otherwise you would not be able to retain the password, it would be stored in another shell.

Events were unfolding like a fragmentation of still shots interwoven with in the broken night, as it riddled on…

You must be a product of living in both worlds without the ability to forget or comprehend, hence your nightmares, they’re you, when you’re on the other world. That makes you a separate entity, your conciousness cannot leave your body and therefore you do not share it with any other shell. When you were separated from this link, a shell on the other world died to even up the numbers, you are on your own rejected from life.

I was the blind leading the blind, going deeper into the dark dead forest of reality.

You physically shift between worlds, remembering everything, belonging to neither. More accurately, existing in a place accessible by both, the grey area.

The box was like a bad conscience that I couldn’t shake, the man said it would explain everything, but I assume he meant it would lead me to this realisation.

There is a stabilising element that balances the two worlds, this element controls the flux of events that takes place in both places, it creates a balance, that designs the outcome.

I felt another’s presence, glaring over my shoulder, monitoring me, in the shadows, being one step ahead of the game. Everything was there in front of me, I had to stick to my guns and bite the bullet to accept it. This now, was the beginning of the end, this is where my fate took over. He was back to claim my help, but with what? It didn’t seem like he wanted my help. He was here to alter the design, to put the guinea pig down. Now I was the one that needed the help.

06 the PASSWORD – Script and Artwork

Hello

Here’s the Scripting and Artwork for Hemisphere chapter 06 the Password :) nearly half way through the series now and the story is definitely shaping up, Comments and feedback is always appreciated πŸ™‚

chapter 06 -the PASSWORD

I sat gazing into the light of the screen as if it was the head lamps of the oncoming train, and I was the guinea pig, transfixed by the beam. The keys I pressed were worn, the letters were nearly faded off. The game of life looking like a ying and yang symbol, and i’m the dot contained within both halves. Everything needed an opposite, a pair, a male – female, a dream – nightmare, heaven – hell, conciousness – shells, the two worlds. Life needs the opposite to function and mother nature needed the balance. The clues were always there, but I’m only now connecting the dots. It only showed the words ‘CABLEOP’ nothing else, just another dead end, the guinea pig in a maze getting spoon fed answers and information, to keep wanting more. The inevitable took effect, my shell expired, well that’s what I thought at the time. I collapsed onto the keyboard.

No rest for the wicked. The other world had taken me, the surroundings were deafening as it screamed its pain into my face, to free it from its duty, its repetitive life cycle, enslaved behind bars. I was back at the terminal, staring into the abyss. How was I physically here if only my conciousness is supposed to shift? Why is the terminal on if I have only just got here? I never switched it on in this world. Blue fire was devouring my brains with the words ‘CABLEOP’, everything looked the same, just with a different halo, a different walk of life. I typed in the address again, I got the feeling that ‘me’ and ‘it’ were recognisable strangers, we both knew each other, but if asked, we had plausible deniability, we’re almost friends, or enemy’s, I forget now which to keep closer. I was nearing the point of no return, sinking deeper and deeper. It showed me that I crossed the line, the one I had everything riding on, I was in over my head. This was to be the count down to the last domino to fall that would set my destiny into play. This was the ‘need to know’ information and I had located it, standing on the edge of the presibus. I had gotten this far, now I needed to know. I typed in ‘CABLEOP’, and felt the last domino fall. Realisation hit me square in the face, the opposites, the key and the lock. The ideal place to hide information, the key on one world and the lock on the other, no shell could retain both parts. It was flashing my life before my eyes. It was going in, I was in fear of it, knowledge was power and power breeds fear.

chapter 05 -the TERMINAL

Two worlds, and we are just hosts to a conciousness that travels between them when we sleep? My questions were experiencing mitosis and the answers had flat lined and checked out of mother nature’s balance. The nightmares were getting worse. Yesterday I’d been stood up by the man, but in my dream I felt like I was just back at the warehouse taking to him. Now I clearly remember my nightmares, and have a box from it, I must remember everything more clearly because of this box. My life had all the pieces to the puzzle but no picture as a reference. When I studied it closer, I saw it had letters and numbers written on it. I’d seen this before, back at the heart, on a terminal. The box was a corrupt General, ordering his dark army of dead men to die over and over. Everything was leading me back, back to square one. What plagued my mind was the fact that time diluted the truth to the point where only shadows remain. Sayings where no-one knows where they came from. Chinese whispers through the ages, half truths and bent lies, natures politics. All the cliques were running, spawning and laughing in my mind. Like a crazy man that has guessed right and getting off on the fact that he could say ‘I told you so’, And I was just another pawn in this cold, sadistic, logical game of life. It took a while to get back to the warehouse, I was relying on a figment of a past memory. I stepped into the light, back into the pain. Mother nature said a shivery whisper pleading me to stay in the dark, giving me a cold sweat, she knew I understood its reality. It was my second home. I was seeing double from the drive and I was running on fumes. I hoped the terminal still worked, this place had seen better days. As the lights decayed the warehouse watched me draw closer. I’d found its epicentre, its moment of truth. The terminal looked straight back at me, worried it would offend me. Worried what I would do with the answers being the bearer of bad news, worried that I had the power to switch it off and kill its exsistance, taking everything else with it. The fear harvested responsibility, it was responsible. I was here to shoot the messenger.

04 the BOX – Script and Artwork

Hello,

Here is the next full script and Artwork for the series hemisphere, 04 – the BOX. This is where it really gets going now, i think, I love the intro narration with the surreal water droplet playing a larger part as the abstract sub themes really start to play a role as tangible characters and intertwine within the main storyline.

The artwork really moved onto a new level as well, Very proud of this, as it’s all drawn with brushes in photoshop. One of my favorite artworks and scripting. Also I produced some narration πŸ™‚

Any feedback please feel free to contact me, comments are always welcome like usual, Enjoy and thanks for visiting :)

Chapter 04 – the BOX

where are you? poor little ghost boy. Are you used to looking for things that no one else can see? Are you in some place that we cannot reach? Are you bathing in moonlight, or drowning on the beach? Are you surrounded by things we cannot penetrate? Is the cage you love, the home you also hate?

He walked in, over my grave, allied with the darkness as it ate him up. He asked for my help, but not yet, all in good time. Suddenly it snapped into my education, the lessons I wish I learnt, but now I wish I never did, like a kid trying to grow up too fast. There are two worlds, both harbour an equal number of lifeless shells, these are perceived as people. To become alive they need a consciousness, but there’s only a limited number of these to form a symbiotic relationship. These consciousness’ jumps between shells across the two different worlds, they never stop. This is existence, the workings behind the scene of reality. I was living a life of lies, the truth was too hard to comprehend. I tried blinding myself to it, but it made too much sense to close my eyes anymore, it all added up. When one person sleeps on one world, one wakes up on the other, with their conciousness. When one shell dies on one world, one dies on the other, evening up the numbers, maintaining mother nature’s balance. The conciousness is generic, as in age, gender and sex do not matter, they go from man to woman, young to old. Life’s genetic mystery’s were unraviling, but none to my questions. People in comas are shells missing a conciousness, removed from the loop. The transparent noose was tightening around my life, a slow death. When you fall asleep the conciousness stores your memories in the large chunk of the brain previously thought unused, like a backup. Then exits your body and enters someone’s on the other world, recalls their memories, and continues their exsistance. Dreams, deja-vu and mild dispositing are all results from the conciousness leaking what it was previously doing. Centuries ago this was common knowledge, and accepted, but in time it had been distorted, diluted and disregarded. The small print that no-one reads was shaping itself into the blueprint of life. He then handed me a box, what was this? Pandora’s box?. Never accept gifts from strangers because you always get fucked, and they get away with it using the small print. He said it would explain everything. My mental state was back at square one, but this time it looked more like a cube, a box. Trying to fathom the true fabric of life, I passed out

And woke up. Now I had a box, the one from my nightmare. If that was a dream how did I have a box from it? And what did he say about two worlds? He was my worst nightmare. The last thing I remember him saying before I woke up, “Sleep on it, it’ll be better tomorrow”
