The Snow Triplets by weirdink The Snow Triplets by weirdink
The Snow Triplets. These ones are strange indeed. So far we got to explain how rain is made in the mystery world, but what about snow? Well, thats where these triplets come in handy. First of all, like all triplets they are inseparable. They are always hanging out together, hovering over the sea which separates the mystery tree forest from where the white matrix lives. They re good friends with the Cloud Matrix, probably because their tasks are similar? Well, i am not sure. What i am sure of though is that these fellas got some serious skills in snow making. And you cant actually see it happen, no. theres no silly lolipops and stuff. Its just magic. its an ancient ritual, described in the Old Book as The Dance Of The Snow Triplets. Here's a quote from the book:

"When snow is needed in the Mystery world, the White Matrix has to call the Snow Triplets. The Snow Triplets then begin the Ancient Dance Of The Snow Triplets, forming an imaginary circle over the snow seal which is previously etched on the ground where snow is needed. They start moving in three different orbits, while humming the ancient chants. Then, suddenly their tentacles become transparent, making them look like three white balls which are then stacked on top of eachother, forming something that looks like a snowman. instantly, snow flakes appear to fall from the sky, covering the triplets. The snow lasts only for a day as
the triplets (which now look like a snowman) remain frozen, covered in thick snow untill it melts, thus setting them free again. " Old Book, Chapter 8, page 168


Tough job, that is.

Wow, they are so cute! I feel sorry for them though, it must be nasty having to be frozen over and over again all the time. The background looks great.

where do you bring this creative mind from?

So when the book is out? ^_^

weirdink Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Well, from being irresponsible, childish, good at daydreaming, staying up late, caffeine, not too much sleep, nicotine, soothing soundscapes, dreams...

Oh, the book... Well, I think I am gonna be developing the Mystery World for all my life, lol. I ll probably die an old man, over my trusty Mac (i hope they ll be still around then) sat in a worn out chair, lol.

In a more serious notre I honestly dont really now.. What i know for sure is that I am dying for the book to be actually published, that would make me so happy. I hope in the next few years, and if everything turns out well for me and my art, there surely will be some nice folks somewhere, willing to invest on my whimsicality.... For now, my limited number of contacts makes it somehow a crazy dream..

Thanks for the nice questions :D

take care

This is really special. Not only do the triplets look lovely, but the background is stunning. The little wisps you've drawn over the landscape give the impression of a lovely breezy field, and the colour pallette is ultra.

Nice work as usual, this one was well detailed, the shadows on the ground are proportional to the Triplets. I also like how the Cloud Matrix looks at the distance.

They have an interesting look, the look like children but at the same time they don't.

hehe, cheers amigo.

yeah, i kinda wanted to have some more detail in this one, as it is the introducing piece for the new Matrixes-the Snow Triplets. So, i had to come up with a nicely detailed piece and try to link up older characters with the new ones. So yeah..

About the looks, i know what you mean. I ws trying to gve them an enigmatic, neutral look. Cause I think theyre the most mysterious Matrices there.
So, i was playing around with eye types and eye spacing and i think this look suits them the most.

Thanks for your kind words and support all the way. I really appreciate it and i really appreciate your fantastic and well thought out feedbacjk you give me every single time.

cheers amigo

take care

oh, yeah.. Storybook. You know, im dying to start working on one, though time is so limited... maybe i ll upoad some pages where everything is in order, dunno. But totally, a book would be so nice!!! Or an animation. If i find someone whos willing to work on it, i would die to see my matrices swaying their tentacles and hovering.. :P

More importantly, congrats!!! Youre the first one to see the sea, hahaha. Most of the people thought it was the ground, maybe its not o well done though..

New logo, yeah.. i think it works nice because the cloud sits well with the white border arrounfd the image, but in some cases its too detailed to be used, so I just use the type only. Like for the printed version of the white MAtrix which I did for the art shopo im stocking my art in, i couldnt use the new logo, because its the same mystery people from the piece, u know?

anyways, thanks so much for the support my friend, I really appreciate it..

trake care
