But Daaad! by Toradh
But Daaad!
I felt bad the day I started this, so I did the only thing that can save bad days when you don’t have any best friends around: Disney. Disney Thingol and Lúthien.
The only way I’m ever gonna accept a Silmarillion movie adaptation would be old school Disney.
The style turned out a bit too detailed and realistic for classic Disney, but I liked the sketches so much that I didn’t want to change that. And, on the other hand, the shading is still too simplified to count as actual painting. I hereby proudly present to you: The Lay of Leithian – the animation!

The inspiration is ages old and can be found here:
silmarillion-confessions.tumbl…

I regret nothing.

Music suggestion of the day is a healthy mixture of Disney, Wicked, Blind Guardian, Summoning, and the Lord of the Rings musical! I don’t know, either!
Just imagine Lúthien defeating every single villian in epic belt singing battles. PEOPLE, THE POSSIBILITIES! I want to rework the Lay of Leithian into pseudo-Disney songs. This should totally be a thing.

100% Photoshop. I would love to do pseudo screenshots and Disney-ish style more often, but it takes AGES with background and all! And yes, I was lazy with those, but at least I painted backgrounds. I might refine this at some later stage, but I probably won’t.

At least a very few steps can be found on my twitter!

On a quick note, I'll be on vacation from tomorrow onwards, visiting verdokai.deviantart.com/ and petstudent.deviantart.com/. I miss my cats and my friends already, but I’ll have great company and fillmjölk, so I suppose I'll be fine!

Just don’t be surprised if I don’t reply to any messages for a week. See you!

I play a note... by Toradh
I play a note...
Henrik Klingenberg. Keyboard idol. Do I need to say more than “the keyboard solo in Paid in Full?”
I don’t understand why he smashed one, though.

As usual, pencil sketch with photo reference, pimped in Photoshop.

Yeah, well, it's not that shiney, and it’s actually made in iWeb with little to no customization, BUT it’s my first English website! Huzzah!
You can find it here:
www.cuiascamh.de

Yes, it’s a German server, but it’s entirely in English, so don’t be afraid. Not that there was much text, anyway…
In case you find broken links, typos or whatever, please let me know! Thanks!

I’m even considering to finally set up an artist’s facebook page and twitter because everybody tells me so, but, well, I’m a lazy butt, so it might take a while. And a lot of encouragement. So kick my butt or it won’t happen.

EDIT:
I'm officially twittering now! Still don't know about facebook, but we'll see.
If you can't bother to follow me here, or if you want random bandfangirling and bird peeps in addition to my paintings and stuff, you can find it here:

This is just one step further on my way to world domination.

Steps Long Live the King by Toradh
Steps Long Live the King
More steps for those curious enough to check!
VERY large file warning.

Again, if you have questions, please ask! I obviously comment on every single brush stroke I make, so please let me know what you’d like me to explain!

Please excuse the sloppy/bad English in the descriptions, I have a hangover from truffles with whiskey filling. Don’t ask. Please don’t.

I won't join groups anyway, so please stop sending me invitations! Thank you!

"Meedyevilist" aka Anglo-Saxonist in spe, which means that I, too, fell at Hastings in 1066. I‘m like Gawain, I only function in the sunlight. And only at 20°.
In case this isn’t obvious, I love music, certain animals, and the sky. The only thing I love more are certain people.
