MA 2015: "Be not afeared..."
"Go, prick thy face, and over-red thy fear, Thou lily-liver'd boy." Me to moi.
About this creation
Built for the 2015 MocAthalon, for team Yuniverse.
Category: 17) Signifying Nothing! Shakespeare. Create a diorama depicting an epic scene from one of the bard’s celebrated plays.

As I write this I'm beyond tired and can't really think of what to say. Caliban is one of my favourite characters in The Tempest, so it's very difficult to do him justice properly. Both him and Stepano and Trinculo are done in styles as tribute to two awesome builders, "Sir" Ian Heath and Simply bricking it. Reference photo for Caliban.

Speech: (Have a tissue handy, it's one of the most beautiful speeches in all of Eng. lit.)
Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.
(Act 3, Scene 2, lines I don't know, this isn't an English essay, geez...)


Caliban excitedly imagining and proclaiming his speech!





"The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked..."




One of the most wonderful characters ever created. The Bard was truly a genius.

The Fourth-eth Wall-eth
As a huge Shakespeare fan I've failed to do the bard justice, but check out the amazing entries that others have done!
I knew I should've done Henry the V....

Quoting Chris Phipson A very abstract design. I like it! 4 points ~Chris.
Thanks you Chris! I've never really considered my work in the abstract to be all that good, but still, thanks!
Quoting Clayton Marchetti It took me a minute ok 2 minutes to understand what you were going for here. Sorry I'm slow but this is truly brilliant! I love the Bard! Outstanding!
Don't worry, it took me two years to understand the play and even then I'm still trying to understand it. Thanks Clayton! ^_^
Quoting matt rowntRee You've done Billy justice here. Great choice as it is one of the most beautiful passages indeed. But, then, the Tempest is one of the most beautiful works ever. Pretty much a given. ;) Clever and abstract idea. Awesome!
Well, even the bard would admit that the artist is most hard on himself. Still, thank you as always for the kind comments Matt. ^_^
Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Interesting, just eking out a 4 from me.
