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.

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.

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.
