How I paint stars by Toradh
How I paint stars
I’ve been asked for more step by steps, and how I do starlit skies, so I decided to answer this in more detail. If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Beware: the file is HUGE, but feel free to download it to see some better detail.

I have more tutorials (or something similar…) on my to-do-list, but if you’re interesting in a specific topic, please let me know as well!
I’ve even been thinking about offering workshops or granting personal, detailed feedback in exchange for one or the other favour, IF anybody should be interested in that and firmly believes I can actually teach them something.

Your thoughts? I’d love to know!

Fuchur by Toradh
Fuchur
Yes, that’s how he’s spelt. Pfff.

I’ve never been completely happy with my Fuchur from last year. Now I got a little closer. Furthermore, I was asked how I do my starlit skies some time ago, so I figured I could simply paint anything (like, Fuchur from the Neverending Story) and put some space and stars in the background.
I took photos of the painting steps, but please be patient with me until I have put them together, that will take quite a while and it’s not really fun. For now, enjoy shiney Fuchur.

Drawing ink.

EDIT:
Here are the steps!

Vic Anselmo. I must admit I have never listened to the particular song from the title as often as I listened to the German and the Swedish verison, but that is only because I don't understand a word of it! Anyway, the way Vic sings it is amazing. It also blows me away what she’s doing on her own songs.
Le me advertise her:

Oh and she happens to teach singing lessons in my town, which is both exciting and confusing. Someday I’ll have to find a way to sneak in and ask for an autograph or something.

As usual, pencil sketch with reference and Photoshop pimping.

Quick announcement for my German friends and watchers: once more, I'll be at the Role Play Convention in Cologne (May 16th and 17th), drawing, chatting, and hopefully making some money so that I can immediately spend it on supporting the falconers and their lovely bird friends.
I'll update once I know where exactly I'll be, but I'm confident that it won't be that difficult to find the artists' alley and subsequently, me.

Looking forward to seeing my RPC friends from previous years again! Also looking forward to saying hi to anybody who wants to pass by and watch me scribble!

I think the registration worked. I'm confident. Kinda.

Old Masterpiece by Toradh
Old Masterpiece
This is a birthday present for a friend of mine. Last summer, her boyfriend shot this photo of her which I used as reference for this. Back then, we agreed that it looked like an old master’s painting, and the idea for this was born. I'm glad I managed to finally do it!

Drawing ink.

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.
