Lightshard - Opening by Cashile Lightshard - Opening by Cashile
i don't know what to comment? :'D really excited about this;

Lightshard is my very first comic/graphic novel, and i'm happy to share it with you, finally ^^ I'll try to update as quick as i can, but please be patient, since the art style will be the same what i always do, it will take some time :3

This turned out to be a symbolism-orgy, so feel free to guess xd I'd be happy to see your interpretations ~ some symbols are pretty obvious, some of them are story specific ~

Thanks for being here, and see you soon :iconblackheartplz:



LS is written by ~GabrielGarren and ~Cashile art by me ~

You see, I wasn't sure but now I am. I don't think anyone noticed this but if they did congrats. The symbol between Lightshard, it's the sign of Lucifer. The serpents, Lucifer appeared to Adam and Eve as a serpent sneaky and manipulative. Now don't get me wrong I'm not a religious nut, I just rp a lot of shit that has to do with hell and heaven so I have to know some crap. The worlds behind him are the true he knows of and lie the that the others live in. The trees. I wanna say tree of life but I am unsure. The chains remind me of him being chained down in hell.  I'm probably not right but I love this picture so much and the fact I could relate to it is amazing. I really hope you don't laugh at me. I can't wait for the first chapter to come out. Keep it up man I am always sitting at the edge of seat wanting to see more of your work, it's beautiful and it's dark. My love and luck goes out to you.  <3

nice c: (y)
I reworked the symbol a little bit, still using the same base but it is now more related to the story too and gives some extra meaning to it  : www.facebook.com/cashileart/ph…
i need to finish this cover too lol

According to the Bible though, there is no character mentioned as "lucifer" - the word is latin and it was used as an adjective to describe the light of the moon. The fact that people think that he is a character comes from fiction, later literature works. (also worth mentioning, that 'satan' 'the beast' 'the serpent' are all used differently in the book)

In the Bible the serpent never lied. God told the humans that they will die if they eat the fruit. The serpent corrected this statement:

"Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”"

my story will be about the Serpent, how he dealt with being cast out unfairly. and how he will take his 'revenge' - with truth again.

Thanks so much for your kind words, i hope to start the story very soon >u<

hmm... for the interpretation... *looks at the image carefully* hmm...

Chained to the world that he knows, the warrior is unable to do more than what he has already done, but yet his mind is filled with thoughts of what the world was like beyond of where he was at. The trees/wings that are behind him show what a true world is like, the moons symbolizing the small circle showing of how his life is currently, and the larger one being the world that he has yet to discover. What he had been doing up until this point could have been revealed to be a lie, he not truly doing what he had for what he had thought he was doing.

^^ what you think of the interpret, shile shile? :D

::whistles:: Wow. 

The beauty, the contrast, the details you don't see right away make this into a striking piece. 

I'm not entirely sure why, but the two black moons(?) make me think of yin and yang.

the two black moons are story-specific, but now i really like your idea for it too :D

It's funny how ideas can come to you.

Perhaps it wasn't the just the moons that gave me that idea. The entire cover seems to be a balance between black and white. The trees-wings and the sky, the black figure and the white snake skin pattern.
