Let’s do this in German because it’s only relevant if you’re living in Germany, anyway:

Wer hätte Lust, mich auf die Frankfurter Buchmesse zu begleiten? Gemeinsam ist man bekanntlich stark! Im Moment ist noch unklar ob ich einen oder zwei Tage hinfahre und ich habe auch noch keine Bahntickets gebucht. Wird auch davon abhängen, ob jemand mitkommt und man dann evtl. ein günstiges Hotelzimmer bekommt.

Horribly long description is long. Proceed with care.

I.wanted.to.do.these.for.so.long. I’ve been working them on them on and off in free minutes in between. For MONTHS.

Tales of Zestiria linearts! Tales of Zestiria GIVES ME LIFE. Have I mentioned that today? Aka Tales of Sailor Super Saiyajin Sorey the actual Eevee gijinka who is too pure for this world, and his merry sentai team of friendly elemental spirits who fight evil in very tight and very silly looking costumes (I mean, get real, combat stilettos!? WHY!?). How is this not awesome. The accompanying manga and anime adaptations are so beautifully animated/drawn that it makes my heart melt (less happy about the story changes, though), and I could cry for ages about the entire incredibly likeable cast of characters. That being said, I haven’t had that much fun with a JRPG for a long time, and I don’t fangirl THAT HARD about anything very often. New life goal: create something that gives people the feels that I have about this game.
Thank you Bamco but also damn you because I think I’ve become the personification of tumblr due to THIS GAME I SWEAR

As usual, I ever so slightly de-anime-d the characters. You’ll never believe how long the linearts took me. And I even cheated and traced some of the patterns in their clothing to speed up the process, argh… (Lailah, how is your dress even real)
Good news is that I’m ridiculously proud of these linearts. They’re also very clean for my standarts. I’m seriously thinking about adding Dezel and (since Berseria is just around the corner) Laphicet and Eizen to the bunch as well to have all playable Seraphim/Malakim covered, heavens help me…

THERE WILL BE COLOUR. I’m just not sure yet whether I’ll go for digital cel shading, shining traditional drawing ink, or both. There will also be elemental magic. Which you mostly can’t see yet.

I tag this description #Tales of party banter #Tales of Fire! Water! Earth! Wind! Heart! #Tales of all the seraphim deserve better #except Symonne #Symonne is a bitch #Tales of somebody please find a fucking way to save Eizen why is this happening #Tales of just let Sorey and Mikleo be happy together forever okay #I’m friggin’ crying about the ending

END ME

Official music suggestion: eat the opening folks I’m totally not addicted to this beautiful shit NO NEVER (the Japanese original of course. The instrumental still rocks but I prefer it with the vocals)

JOIN ME IN ZESTIRIA HELL

100% Photoshop. Zaveid got “finished” just yesterday night, I lack sleep, I have a headache and I’m genuinely afraid of next week and life in general, so chances are that I’ll hate these linearts the very moment when I can think straight again. But we’ll see about that.

Commission Example Sheet by Toradh

I’m officially a full-time artist by now although I have no more commissions this year… you know what means, I’m open for commissions until kingdom come! Click the link below to see some pricing examples for private clients. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask! If you’re looking for christmas gifts, this is your chance, because I can still finish sketches or digital art in time (full-colour A3 watercolour paintings will have to wait for next year probably, though).

Signal boosts are greatly appreciated!

Janurary edit:
Friendly reminder that I’m still for hire! Even if you’re not looking for commissioned artwork right now, maybe you know somebody who might be and would be willing to tell them? Thanks a lot for your help!

Heart Of The Wood
This year’s birthday present for my best friend (and her fiancé). It’s meant to fill some blank space on their living room walls, and I can’t wait to see it there! The magpies have some personal, symbolic meaning, but they’re also just really pretty birds.

Drawing ink on Fabriano hot pressed satinated paper.

Today’s music suggestion: Small of Two Pieces from Xenogears (www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7D0U_…). Neither of them has ever played the game as far as I know but the song keeps reminding me of them, so here we go.

Patreon Dump 2016
AKA goddamn big file. A collection of all the sketches I did for my patrons over at Patreon (www.patreon.com/toradh). Also includes the continuous adventures of Bob the American crow (and a yet unnamed squirrel) and a few linearts which I forgot to post elsewhere but Patreon. Usually random critters and roleplay characters. Except that Locke from Final Fantasy VI sneaked in.
This is only the outcome of my first year on Patreon, and I’m so proud! If you feel like supporting me too, or only spreading the word, that’d be warmly appreciated!
Onwards to 2017!

Anglo-Saxonist in spe, which means that I, too, fell at Hastings in 1066. Would prefer to either learn singing or simply screw all this stuff and become a Pokémon trainer.


Artist for hire!

I love music, ravens, the colour blue, and the sky.
