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!
