Odyssey Propulsion 6

Wed Dec 12, 2012, 6:51 PM








We want to especially thank an elite core of Odyssey II writers:




Those deviants truly embodying the spirit of the project by continuing to create and submit next chapters – no matter the story’s refusal to go along with their proposed direction. The zeitgeist is a powerful force, but the artist must know when to sail against the been-there-done-that. And our writers, artists and poets have been doing that week after week. So many artists and writers continue to send in wonderful material week after week.






We have decided to extend the writing deadline for the last chapter to December 31 and we're expanding the Word count to 800 words for our final chapter! Artists will then have two full weeks to illustrate our final chapter - meaning artwork for Chapter 8 will be due by January 14, 2013. Any Animations/films and poetry deadlines are now extended until Jan 14! We will then unleash, I mean publish, this tale of Paul’s very unexpected journey!

Elite Core Odyssey Participants - Profile 1






































:iconkill-natalie:

Kill-Natalie, whose vibrant kinetic wordsmithery is always a pleasure to read. A young artist with a sense of grotesquerie that’s quite remarkable.


:thumb332523457:




























The atmosphere of friendly competition, mutual aid when needed and fulsome community that has endured throughout all the glitches and hiccups of Odyssey and Odyssey II is something I will always be grateful to have beheld and well worth all the 4 a.m. technical meltdowns. Hopefully this is only the beginning of many such innovative projects. The real prize in this “contest” is witnessing how deviants and other creative entities from around the world can come together in a mere flash of time to help each other build something unique in storytelling that points to the very future of the written narrative.

Wow. This art reminds me of superjail for some reason, but anyway, it's cool and horrifying.

Since i'm a writer a very good writer I still want to know what clive Baker is doing. Either he is or isn't writing a book about Deviantart.

Clive barker wrote up the prologue to this project, he is also the final arbiter on which submission is picked each chapter (I assume). This is not a book about deviantart, he is assisting in the writing of a book by deviantartists.

That's all I wanted to know. So is this book going to be at any book store so I can actually buy it and enjoy reading?

as far as I know? Yes.
The title will probably not be odyssey II, but I'm pretty certain that the book will be obtainable in one way or another.

Can somebody explain all of this to me? I don't understand what is going on? Is everyone collaborating to create a story, or is it merely a collection of stories?

Everyone is collaborating to create one story- a writer submits a chapter, and visual artists submit visuals.

I'm really happy I participated in this event, it's allowed me to connect with a great many of you who have submitted or who are simply here to take a gander at the work. I have high hopes that at a future point in time, possibly not so far away that we might all once again collaborate together. You all are wonderful

yup, it's been a good ride, tho heartbreaking at times. :laughing: i'm just grateful to this project for surrounding me with creativity. i mean i've never even drawn a non-cute monster before this project. also, may i just say that i'm amazed at the level of quality in the artwork submissions, just to be at par is an accomplishment, i think. this is like the dream art workshop i've always wanted to go to. :squee: i'll miss it when it's ovah :( :faint:

The extension will give me a chance to participate. The day of the previous deadline my son was home from school so I could not get a chance to write. Thank you so much for one more chance.

Now we know (the result of this kind of project is a proof) that we can produce an artistic & protean real entity, outcome of an "artistic collective intelligence." Science-fiction?...No. An artistic reality possible by new technologies. Obviously, exciting! ;)

Working in this project has allowed me to see other deviants' great talent :) To be part of the Odysseans' community is a nice experience, being able to see many different types of artwork has showed me to what extent the DA community can go. I'm looking forward to the next propulsion :)

I wish I had had the time to contribute!!! Sadly senior year and college applications have taken over my life. Hopefully there will be another one soon? (maybe with Neil Gaiman :D... jk)

Awesome! Well done everyone, most especially the ones who are putting in a good effort every single week. It's been fantastic working on this project, talking to everyone, waiting week by week to see the story progress, and to see and read everyone's contributions. I am so glad I decided to give it a go way back in October.
