MYST book locket - Just a little linking... by Pirkleations MYST book locket - Just a little linking... by Pirkleations
"Now I understand. Endings and beginnings are within the Fissure, that Riven cleft of stars that acts as both a wall and a bridge. And though I am unable to understand how, the very flow of stars that brought my Myst Book into worthy hands I am sure served as a safe passage home for my friend. The Age of Riven is closed forever, but the people of Riven are free, and now I am at rest, understanding that in Books, and Ages, and Life, the Ending can never truly be written."

~Atrus


This is the prototype for a new MYST-related bit of functional jewerly/keepsake. It is a brass pendant, measuring 5/8 x 3/4 inches and opens up to insert two mini photos. I will be sculpting and painting various Linking Book covers in micro-detail and hand-painting them. My estimated starting price for each one with a chain will be $20. I'll be having them listed on Ebay and in my ETSY shop.

Each one will be signed and dated by the artist, David Pirkle(Me).

No worries!!

I hope that your day has been going well!!

I'll be doing some micro-book cover sculpting while some of my favorite shows are playing on TV.
I've got my tools and extra work lights ready to go. This will be EPIC.

Awww! Thanks, Sweetie!! <3

I'm not doing too bad right now. I've been kind of taking it easy and watching some "Buffy" while working. After I get through the 2 final seasons, I'm gonna pop in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Good times!

Thanks for the :+fav: on the new trio of lockets!

Thanks! And thanks for the :+fav:!!

I want to do several different linking books, including Releeshahn, Myst, Relto aand others.

I'll be sure to get the word out when Cyan OK's the concept. The price should stay pretty reasonable and fair, as long as material costs do not go up to fast.

Just got approval a few minutes ago.

They are going to look for some archived renders for me to use as reference. Until then, I can sue some of the reference images that I have found on my internet searches.

So, Releeshahn will be a definite among the designs.

I'll start with the MYST book and go from there, while I search for more images. I want these to be as awesome as possible for my fellow Explorers!!

Thank you!! And thanks for the :+fav:!!

As long as Tony at Cyan approves the prototype concept, I can start production on the lockets.

Yes. I just recently ungraded my computer to get into MOUL-A.

My Explorer name is David Riddick.

I've been meaning to do some sightseeing in the cavern again soon. Ebay and some health issues have been monopolizing my time and antics. I need to watch for the next in-caverns event and join in every once in a while. I might even get some more business that way!!

TTFN!

Nice meeting you. I'm thinking of visiting Aegura today and hunt for the Minkata link or do a marker quest. If you see someone that looks like Vin Diesel(Riddick)running around at about 11:00am(West Coast/USA) time, that would likely be me. LOL See you around the cavern!

Until then, the ending had not yet been written.

That looks awesome. Can't wait to see what other Myst/Riven/Uru related designs you do, not to mention any steampunk/sci-fi stuff! Great work as always. I love your aesthetic.

Right now, I'm kinda pacing myself. A pneumonia virus has got me a bit under the weather. But I'm still able to do small(literally) projects like this without too much excess strain.
Perfect "sitting" project!!

It is pretty cute, isn't it?

I'm thinking of sculpting more than just MYST linking book covers for the lockets. Sci-Fi and Fantasy ideas are boundless. I'm even considering some Steampunk and Gothic styles.

I'm going to sculpt a few different covers and D'ni symbols as well. Possibly even get into some Wiccan/Pagan and Science Fiction/Fantasy designs. Might as well diversify to satisfy a more varied customer base.

Very fine point art pen.

I think that I am going to sculpt the covers instead. I can't tell you how many times I messed up the lettering! It will take way to long just to micro-paint each cover and keep labor costs down. Sent Tony a head's up on the idea. Hopefully, he'll like it!
