Peripeteia by Culpeo-Fox Peripeteia by Culpeo-Fox
What the two demons did.

So, I first saw one of your pieces about 5+ hours ago (after 2 hour I pre-ordered "The Fox and the Crow"). Since then I'm looking at drawing after drawing, trying to make some sense of the whole "Black and Red Book business" and it drives me crazy. I did some "research" and read most of the other comments for clues and made this account only so I can partake in solving the mystery surrounding the foxes. I now have some theories of my own... Whatever the story actually is about, I think it has something religious, because the themes of life, death and (in my opinion) reincarnation are often used. I also see some parallels to Watership Down, maybe because of the eerie and mystical atmosphere...

Here is what I think about this one: What the two demons (who could be these guys? culpeo-fox.deviantart.com/art/… did, changes the story around Never (?) completely, for better or worse. That's why the title is "Peripeteia". It seems like she is in a very dark place where she was asleep/unconcsious for a while and suddenly woke up (therefore the startled expression). Maybe the butterflies really represent a strong feeling of love like Sabaku-No-Kaze said but in Japan f.e. butterflies can also be viewed as the souls of the living/dead. Although I don't know why there is only one brown-red butterfly.
I will continue to follow your work, because your drawings/paintings really are amazing and their story has truly captivated me. But now I have to go back to the real world. :D

Oh, I never actually thought about the butterflies like that. I agree in that she was probably asleep for a while, but I think that her startled expression may be because she just realized or discovered something shocking. Judging by the location of the butterflies, you could very well be right about something or someone reincarnating. I think that the "demons", or one of them, are reincarnating via Never, but I could be wrong (and if I am, that's going to be really awkward that I ever thought it. ^^; But for the time being, that's my best guess). The blood vessels may also suggest this. Like you said, Peripeteia, according to my dictionary, is a sudden and significant change to a story, and this would certainly have a huge impact on some characters. And I'd guess that the different colours on one butterfly just symbolizes that it is different from the others.

I'm really wondering how Never is going to react once she's pulled herself together again. I can only second what you've said about the story. :D

I can't help but think there's supposed to be a lighter theme here, but maybe I'm drawing too much from the lighter, more cheerful colors you used in the outlines.

And staring eyes are staring... :O_o:

... The Grinning and the Staring are the demons? And I take it that Never is in love or expecting? I knew she was close to the Chiseler, but this... Sorry, I have many questions.

Du. Was immer du auch bist, ich weiß es nicht. Wie kann das, was einst Atem, Fleisch und Blut gewesen, zu so etwas -
Was frage ich überhaupt. Hohn werde ich so oder so ernten.
