A Mere Fence With Ribbons by TheMichaelMacRae A Mere Fence With Ribbons by TheMichaelMacRae
This is my least favorite of the bunch. It feels like an afterthought in concept and execution but unfortunately it was neccessay.

As I scroll through your work I get the urge to say thank you for making my day better. I really appreciate when I get to see something and wonder if there is a story or not, then I get to run through the other art and try to make up a story that makes sense in what I see. PLEASE tell me if there is any story or lore or mythos or what have you. Im really interested. If not, wouldst thou mind my interpretation of many said images?

I think it's a lot more impressive when you look at it in chronological order to your uploads, personally.. not that I think it was bad to begin with :P

Is that the boy from "Those Who Play for Ghosts"? What's the story behind this painting, I'm so curious!

Yeah. It's for a project for school. I'm doing a bunch of illustrations for a vague story of this character I've had in my head for years but never did much with. In order it goes: ghosts, fence, moths, and then contruct

There will be a few more pictures between these ones and one before all of them and a bunch that take place afterward but I'm doing them out of order hee hee

The gist of the character is that he was born and raised in this small town somewhere in northern Sweden. It is a strange town that no one ever enters nor leaves. At a young age it is clear he has some sort of inherent knowledge of, let's say, 'paranormal' goings on in the world around him. He just sort of understands it, and has a knack for manipulating it. There's just something about him that attracts that kind of energy.

 He becomes aware that the town they live in is strange but no one else seems to notice. Weird things happen that everyone seems to just gloss over. For instance, no one ever passes away, they just disappear, like they never existed. And again, no one notices but him. He decides to leave. --- I'm not entirely sure why yet, or what gives him the idea, but he uses the ghosts in the town to get this book and the scripture inside he knows can be used for various conjurations/spells/whatever. Then he leaves and the spirits chase him. In this picture he has made it to the far outskirts of the open fields and forests that surround the town. He crosses this fence which marks the boundary and theoretically he is home free. In the dense woods that lay beyond the fence he comes into contact with a witch (for lack of a better word) He never actually sees her, but he knows she's there. She is supposedly responsible for the weird town in which he left, she created it and controls it. She gives him something (not sure what) that he uses in tandem with the book he stole from the spirits to make himself more then human.

I guess he fears the paranormal world as much as he enjoys using it to his advantage.

There are many plot holes in this "story" that will probably be filled up eventually But it's really fun to think about!

i would read this if it ever became a back story. on a side note, the little ghost in the front, the girl in the dress, looks more personal than the other ghosts. a sister, or playmate perhaps?
