Character design for The Defenders Chronicles: The Spectral Wolf

Video

The Defenders is a collaborative open transmedia storytelling developed in many blogs, Flickr and Second Life, mostly by photography, and open to anyone that want to get involved into create fantasy action.

Here you have The Spectral Wolf, one of the characters and part of my contribution to this tale. It was designed for a photo-performance in our Alegria’s Bay (ALEGRIA Studio’s virtual parcel) having in mind the mesh land impact, the parcel prim limitation and lag impact, all them limitations of Second Life virtual world.

Designed, modeled, textured and set in wold by myself using Blender, ZBrush, Photoshop and Second Life’s Editor.

Filmed in Alegria’s Bay, Pegasoi sim, Second Life.

[DREAM] LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD – AVATAR RUSTED HEART

Avatar Rusted Heart

Avatar “Rusted Heart” (by Noke Yuitza; photocredit Alpha Auer)

This avatar is the Rusted Heart, one of the characters in “Love is a Battlefield”, my surreal cyberpunk art installation for The Museo del Metaverso (in Craft Virtual World). These damaged hearts in battle are taken by Drones Collectors under the watch of the Great Collector. But, why is it collecting rusted hearts?

The Rusted Heart Avatar is an exclusive item for Fantasy Fair 2015 that you only will be able to get in the Auction. You can wear it as avatar or use it as decoration for your place. 100% of the sale of this item will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Watch a preview of Love is a Battlefield from min. 3:07 to 3:34:

Why I Relay?

My grandma passed away at the beginning of this year due lung cancer. She had it for years, but It was too late when doctors visit her. She was not a smoker, as her sister, that also died due lung cancer a year before. She was born into difficult times and suffer the Spanish civil war. She was of the type of never complain due pain. And she was my family pillar.

I was raised by her. I came to life with her 2 years ago, when we knew she had cancer. We born same day, same month, but in a different era.

In my first incursions with science communication using Second Life, I had the pleasure to organize some debates and lectures about cancer, from a research and social point of view. I’ve never forget the words of the patient that came to talk about her experience, about how is to live with cancer and about the importance for patients to be treated with normality.

One never think how important is until it touch one… but I believe in people’s power to change things and turn them into wonders. Just taking action. We are not as alone as we think 😉

I guess this is why I relay.

I want “to see an end to the heartache this devastating disease cause”, as Duchess Flux says.

Hugs

Burned Tree, making off stage set for Art in Hats music performance

Burned Tree, by Noke (Stage set for Art in Hats, Attrezzo)

“Burned Tree”, part of my stage set for Art in Hats closing party.
Model and texture by myself.
Apps used: ZBrush, Sculptris, Blender, Photoshop, Second Life.
Rendered in Blender Internal and Sculptris.

Nine woods in the cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Birch into the fire goes, to represent what the Lady knows.
Oak gives the forest might, in the fire brings the God’s insight.
Rowan is the tree of power, causing life and magic to flower.
Willows at the waterside stand, to aid the journey to the Summerland.
Hawthorn is burned to purify, and draw faery to your eye.
Hazel, the tree of wisdom and learning, adds its strength to the bright fire burning.
White are the flowers of the apple tree, that brings us the fruits of fertility.
Grapes that grow upon the vine, giving us both joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen, to represent immortality unseen.
Elder is the Lady’s tree, burn it not, or cursed you’ll be.

The Poem of the Nine Woods, anonymous author, celtic poem.

This burned tree was part of my set for the electronic music performance by Morlita Quan with motive of the closing party of Art in Hats challenge, where over  a hundred people came to celebrate. Curated by Quan Lavender in Second Life, this project was a call to mix fashion and art by diverse CG artists and fashion designers. You can see a part of this performance in the following video by Wizardoz Chrome.

I can’t let go of my mind the concept of cyber-renaissance of ancient myths since I’m working with Morlita Quan in Tir Na Nog project. Maybe is because of this that this work in progress rose, inspired in Saint George’s legend, has a bit of cyber style…

“Tears in Rain”, Singularity Tribe electronic music podcast mixed by ALEXI

“Peace, love, unity…”

When Dj Alexi Ayres ask me if I would like to do the cover art for the last Singularity Tribe podcast using my Tears in Rain graphics, I didn’t know how much this immersive electronica session, inspired in cyberpunk culture, fits and follows the evolution of the original story, recreating a cyberlandscape that born and dies at the rhythm of dropping words as “replicant”, “transhumanism”, “technohuman”, “cyber-renaissance”, … words that I’ve try to reflect in this cover art using Bruna Husky’s Memory Fragment 16 “The Beauty” (from Rosa Montero‘s book Tears in Rain, which title is a tribute to Blade Runner film).

Enjoy it!

Una muñeca de trapo pelirroja en el sueño de una noche de verano

Image

Ven aquí, gentil Puck. ¿Te acuerdas de cuando me senté en un promontorio y oí a una sirena, sobre el dorso de un delfín, entonar un aire tan armonioso y dulce que el turbulento océano se apaciguó a su canto y determinadas estrellas se apartaron bruscamente de sus
órbitas, para escuchar la música de la virgen de los mares?

Oberón, Rey de las Hadas

(escena I, Acto II de El sueño de una noche de verano, de William Shakespeare).

The old rag dolls of poor girls were made of colorful materials like potato sacks filled with sawdust, and even then sure they were so valuable for them as portals to their dreams, as the stars for a midsummer night.

Sacos de patata rellenos de serrín, palos, alambres y cuerdas… Las muñecas de trapo de antaño de las niñas pobres estaban hechas de materiales variopintos reciclados y, aún así, seguro que eran tan valiosas para ellas como portales a sus sueños como lo son las estrellas para una noche de verano.

Vintage Red Doll in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Image

Once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin’s back,
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.

Oberon, King of the Fairies
