A Stone's Throw by Mayonaka37 A Stone's Throw by Mayonaka37
First DA submission in years and it's not even my work.

A piece made via iPhone by my wonderful husband, Mathieu, as a companion to my "Where I Belong" fanfiction challenge.

He has quite the talent, eh? I am very proud to have such an awesomely supportive partner.

I really, really like the way this is drawn... The line work just gives it a really cool appearance, like it's technical and stylized at the same time.

And yay for having husbands who participate in fandom with you!

Quite simply, I saved this to last (or close to last have to verify that).


Because sometimes words simply aren’t enough – since words escape me, they fail on the most basic of levels, I must try to describe this feeling in in-depth purple prose that will only scratch the surface of your husband’s awesomeness-ness.

*dramatic deep breath, followed by a sullen, reflective sigh*

What would be the one thing that would come closest to capturing this beauty of this piece? (Never duplicated, only mimicked) Looking at this “object de’ art” is like watching a unicorn running along the shore at sunset; it’s mane flowing as the sea’s fingers dance, intertwining with the sandy beach. The feeling of this piece? It’s like that magical hour where the moon peeks out, giving the sun a haunting kiss goodnight as it becomes the Knight of Night protecting the land where these two live, so they can skip stones from chapter one, although to chapter two.

This piece? It invokes that feeling of motherly love, the need for protecting – the harmony of nature and science that produce moments that could only fail in comparison to the beauty of this art…and that thing that resembles a toilet seat Rinoa is sitting by.

Mathieu’s lines are not merely lines, instead they become angles that look into your soul. Mayonaka, you iPhone is no longer a phone; it is the mother of art, the birthplace of perfection. Without Steve Jobs and his visionary skills, this art would not be touching our monitors with its beauty.

It’s that salt ‘single-tear ‘ our mother earth cries as she watches Squall throw a stone; the mist softly dances around Rinoa cradling her in its protective bosom as Rinoa, too, throws a an errant rock into the unknown.

One. Two. (how many skips?) three. Four. There is no answer, there no sound. Like a mime. Yes, the beauty of this piece is silent like a mime. There are no rocks… just metaphors.. And something that people think are belts around Squall’s ‘nether regions’… others think, “Wow Squall, manscape dude.”

- Fin -

.....And what in the holy hell was all that?

See, see what your husband’s mad art skills do? Seriously, quit your jobs, move to Soho and become starving artists. It’s his calling. I think I’ve said it all… and way too much. ;)

i meant to comment on this a while ago...sorry it took me so long. I think this is very cute. And it IS very nice to have someone in your corner supporting you like that. Whether or not you decide to add this to the WIB gallery, i still think this is a cute picture.

Aww. As an ex-art teacher, I give this an A for effort. I like the abstract of this piece, but I have to ask ... that is Squall's belt right?! Or has he gone all "natural" on us ;)

Lol. That was my EXACT first question when this image was presented to me. "That's beautiful sweetie. But what the heck is going on with his crotch?" "It's his belts. DUH!" <-- real conversation.

Lol. Aww, I don't blame you for questioning, the strokes for his hair and belt are the same. But he did a wonderful job, and I for one think he should do one for each one of your stories ;)

You know, this is rather charming in its own way. Either way, yay for awesome partners! :)
