Falling Apart by DimeSpin Falling Apart by DimeSpin
Many years ago, after spending many years in the sea, Parker washed up on the shore and just gave up on life. He lost his connection to magic and his body digested him from the inside. He became brittle and began to crack and break apart.

After a while, he finally decided to get up and stop rotting on the beach. As Agents do, he manifested the limbs he needed. He staggered inland looking for someone who'd been kind to him while he had been lying on shore, dying, falling apart, and attracting carrion fairies.

Painted with the GIMP

Man....this goes without words. It's fasinating to see how the wood grew through his flippers

You, fellow brony, must teach me your skill. These are all amazing. I'm glad I decided to find out who painted the picture of Applejack Bucking.

Beautifully surreal, love the color scheme and the inspiring concept. I think a print of this is in order.

You have the coolest character designs--I honestly can't pick a favorite. I find Parker strangely endearing though, especially with little stories like this!

Amazing cloration and hues! The hazel cream lighting in the right corner gives the picture a nice lighting. I especially like the drips.

Very impressive. It has turned out so great and it was a pleasure to watch you create it.
shinedust Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011
I don't even know what to say. This is so creative and unique, from story to form. I'm impressed you did this in gimp, I just love everything about this. Its so emotional and moving even without the description (though the description is appreciated very much) I almost really want to get Mr. Parker tattooed across my hip....
SidheRaven Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011
I adore Parker. And I am surprised that he once was a water creature (fins! <3). He's often always covered up and I didn't realize. I love seeing this more exposed? side of him. He looks so miserable that he makes me want to wrap him up in love. This is quite amazing piece. <3

wow Dime this is really great!
I love the detail, sometimes I feel like picking yer brain for some ideas for my second book ;p

Your art is so wonderfully surreal... I don't think I sit and stare at anyone's art like I do yours. I just sit and think about what you were thinking when you drew it, what it means to me, and then it's always interesting to see the stories and concepts you come up with in your description.
He looks so sad, it really struck me.

Amazing art, I am always excited to see more.

Turned out great! Wish I could have watched longer :heart: There is something i just love about Parker all of the sudden...
Coffeetology Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011
Absolutely fantastic!
I love the amount of detail on this one. xD
Also Parker is adorable.

This turned out great! Thanks again for streaming.
AmandaMyers Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011
Really nice painting! His eyes and body language are very expressive. I really like how you painted the glowing magic. It contrasts nicely with how dark Parker's skin is. Also, it's interesting to see Parker without all of his stitched on pieces. I assumed he had always looked like that. Your description really adds to the experience and makes me want to see Parker in his oceanic former-self.
Warruuna Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
is the liquid that's inside him a manifestation of his magic, or is it just a representation of the ocean?

I think Parker is my favorite character of yours. =D
DimeSpin Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
The liquid inside him is the raw exposed magic of his body.

And thanks. =)
