Meanwhile In My Head by smeagolisme Meanwhile In My Head by smeagolisme
Ah yes.
These are the sort of things which happen in my head while I'm working on my sculpts , ornaments and accesories...and (trying) to ponder what to draw when I have free time to do what I fancy.
Well...
Sméagol is not taking so well the idea that SkekSil, the Lord Chamberlain and his crew of squawking fellows are irrupting in my life once again. He wants to be drawn himself. ONLY himself.
Yet Skeksil has a good point, perhaps I should draw too MORE of the Skeksis next: I had the love for his ill- tempered and pompous kind hidden in a drawer within my chest for very long...without expressing it in any way.
There is not a big ammount of fans of The Dark Crystal in my side of the world...and the ones who are can be found sparsely in different corners of my country...we rarely meet at some con, where we  trundle together excitedly (like the proud geeks we are!) and babble about "How great this movie was"...and that's it. Then the conversation starts to verse on Tolkien, Magic the Gathering or another fantasy movies such as Labyrynth (which I love also!!!).
Having noone to talk to about this another fandom love I have, for long years,I thought I was alone into it, and simply pushed it aside as much as I could in order to "focus better" in the more inmediate things...hmm. Adult life does that to you.
I recently discovered by mere chance there were fans of it here...and lots of fanart!!! And fanwritting!
I nearly danced in joy when I noticed I was actually not alone!
And after about 15 years of having given up with that one joke...I again whimpered at the top of my lungs "mmmmmMMMMMmmmm!!!"...

So...
There is much more artwork to come!
Just wait and we'll see what becomes of it...
I'm currently working on art about both The lord of the rings and The Dark Crystal...
Yes.
The Chamberlain and Sméagol will soon come to blows anyway...

It may seem like the Chamberlain won since I'm taking a lot of care to him and his fellows nowadays...but the truth be told, Sméagol is like a brother to me since always...thus I'll never shun him away from my projects, my fantasies, and my list of obsessions! ^^
It was an even match I'd say!
Whatever I draw from now on, it'll likely be a combination of these two loves of mine!

P.S: They'll LEARN to share...or else :threaten:

Heheeh but it wasn't even a poll...
They are apparently unable to know I'll be drawing them both!
I couldn't NOT draw Smeagol anymore...
As much as I couldn't not draw Skeksil some more, since I let him forgotten for too long time, the poor thing...

Both of them are going to get a part of the share!

I'll keep them coming as soon as I can!
Maybe tomorrow, the color version of the skeksis court will be finished!...
It's taking it's time...but I want to get it as good as I can!
Oh!
I represented an early stage for them (not SO early they are really young, actually) but with old SkekSo alive and kicking, and still holding the scepter with decission and might.
Of course the rest of the court seems a bit less decadent than it is afterwards...They are intended to look as fabulous as they considered themselves! XD

I tried watching the movie where the little guy was in. He was a bit too creepy for my liking, but looking at some of his pics, he also reminds me a little of Lexington from Gargoyles.

No offence to him.


I love SkekSil!

Heehee I understand. He's anyways my favorite fictional character since I was a kid...I cannot explain that! It just happened since the first time I read the Lord of the rings book...
My gallery's currently leaking on fanart about him...
Same thing of taste goes for the Skeksis...while watching it when I was a child, all my friends were disgusted or scared about them I just could think
"these guys are what makes this whole film interesting and great!"

Ah yes me too. Sil was my favorite among the skeksis...closely followed by SkekEkt and his extreme mannerisms whom I found strangely adorable!...The guy tried so hard at appearing delicate and pompous in that dinner table while the others ravaged on the food like beasties!...
Then...Sil has DAT face...the permanent smirk...I simply adored that!...And the same whimpering my friends hated...Why...I still love it! I find it funny and cunning-sounding.

For the other Skeksis, I think they hated Sil because of his whimpering voice, well, Ekt had a voice that was nearly similar and they didn't complain about him. Ekt acted so much more feminine. Before I really understood them, I thought that Ekt was a girl Skeksis. But in a quote from Jim Henson on a old website that he thought of them as neither one sex, so it could be possible that the Skeksis could make themselves female too if they had to.

Chamberlain also has so much in common with the female hyena Shenzi from the Lion King. The smile, the cunning behavior, nearly the same soft voice. Both meat eaters. Both actually got hurt in their movies. Chamberlain on his hand by the shard, Shenzi on her face by Simba. Just some examples.

TRUE!!!
I'm even going to write/draw a comic on that issue: Sil's "why my voice disturbs you when HIS doesn't"...
Yes...Ekt was definitely a ladyman!!! Ektdiva by smeagolisme  ...so to say...
I did too!
As a little girl I believed Ekt to be a female...and had doubts about Sil even when he was called a "he"...THAT voice...that HIGH PITCHED voice...
I think so. Any hermaphroditical organism (as we can assume they and the Ur-ru are, according to notes by Henson stating "they were an awkward mix of the two genders") I believe they could go as feminine or masculine as they desired to...if you think about it, it would be natural to them to express themselves in any fashion they wanted!...After all they were exactly neither thing but both!
.
Oh yes...and the comic with their meeting you suggested to me was SO FUN to draw!!!

I don't quite know if they think I am talented, but they sure do want to get portraited and "come out to play!"
And both think of themselves as the "primma donna" as it seems XD

I'll end up drawing both of them in a close future...not together, but...each at his own turn.
I am happy that you liked this!
There'll be more to come!

It was really an idea I had while working and searching in my head what to draw next...Both SkekSil and Sméagol seemed to be arguing through my thoughts "Next should be me!" "NO! ME!" and so on...that description is a true story :giggle:
THANKS FOR FAVING IT!
