Welcome to my life, Quinacridone!

A few people recommended Daniel Smith watercolours to me when I posted my last blog post. I got curious and found a place to order them online in Germany. I got myself Shadow Violet, Quinacridone Deep Gold and Indian Red (which I’d run out of anyway). The owner of the shop very kindly also included [...]

The Oath has been awakened…

Finished piece (here’s the process). The post was becoming so long that I decided not to hide the finished image at the bottom! Click to enlarge! Detail shots (click to enlarge):

The Oath has been awakened – painting

In painting this one, I was facing the challenge to have a lot of reds, even in the sky, and horses – which sometimes leads to dangerously girly-calendary motifs. So far, I seem to have succeeded in not falling over on that side of the fence. I know that because my daughter, a great fan [...]

One little, two little, fifteen little Noldor

I sat down yesterday for a reality check. Am I deluded? These all look different to me, even without their characteristic hair. So yes, they are all related (fathers and brothers and sons and daughters and cousins), so they are all immortal and ageless, and they are all beautiful in the same ethereal Elven way, [...]

The Painting of the Sword

… or, how to avoid cluttering up mass scenes. On your second attempt. In this painting, I have such an amount of detail in the lineart that I have to be careful not to kill the picture with it.Let me give you a fun example of how *not* to do it, from exactly ten years [...]

The Drawing of the Sword

(Drawing the Drawing of the sword always results in semantic weirdness.) It was in early 1994 that I realised this scene was one tough cookie. Two Elves, one at an arm’s and a sword’s length from the other? That means a bit of Elf at the margins of a picture and rather a lot of [...]

Too many ideas, too many commissions, too little time, aaaah! … I love my life. It can stay like this.

Loads of leisure at school to scribble stuff in between lessons! Maedhros trudging back to his own people after his rescue and recovery; Maedhros being welcomed by his brothers with what borders on exuberance (for guilt-ridden F

Maedhros searching for the sons of Dior

“And the cruel servants of Celegorm seized his young sons and left them to starve in the forest. Of this Maedhros indeed repented, and sought for them long in the woods of Doriath; but his search was unavailing, and of the fate of Elur

There will be blood – painting

Run, little Orcses, run. I’m proud to announce that I have found the paper/paint combo that I will stick with to the end of days. Doc Martin’s liquid watercolours – no surprises there – and Canson Montval. The Canson students’ paper is good, but tends to cake up under too many layers of paint, and [...]

There will be BLOOD. (sketch)

Maedhros told me, in that very subtle and persuasive way of his, that he wanted a powerful painting. Not fluffy. No get well swords. No kick ass ivy. And by all means no barbed chains. He was okay with stump, though. demanded it, in fact. I imagine that this is after he has just been [...]

My Green Problem turns into my Green Period

So, after years of sparking puns aimed at me for avoiding the colour green in my paintings, I’m endeavouring to tackle that fear of mine. The funny thing is: This seems to be a common thing among artists. James Gurney calls it “The Green Problem“. This year, I’ve set out to overcome some of my [...]

New Silmarillion picture ideas

I can’t seem to stop. O_o Maglor and Maedhros after the latter’s rescue. And one that I’ve been wanting to (re)do for years – the Prophecy of the North. “Tears unnumbered ye shall shed; and the Valar will fence Valinor against you, and shut you out, so that not even the echo of your lamentation [...]

Spark – a Silmarillion fanfic

I’ve done it. Written my first Silmarillion fanfic in seventeen years. O_o Maedhros upon Thangorodrim. Warning: Disturbing themes. Injury, torture, madness. This probably won’t be easy to understand unless you’ve read the Silmarillion. Disclaimer: I don’t own the character, though I promise to return him in good condition. As far as text-faithfulness is concerned. Maedhros [...]

Maedhros in Angband – finished

Sorry, no progress shots for this one. I painted it in a sort of delirium. I used to do this all the time when I was younger – sitting down with a bottle of coke and my paints, and emerging four to eight hours later with a finished painting that I couldn’t remember even thinking [...]

Maedhros in Angband – lineart

Poor love. Yes, I feel bad already. I went back and forth with the chain fettering him to the wall; in the end, I left it there – I don’t think they’d trust him to stay put without it, and the chain makes it clear he still has hands (and arms) back there somewhere. O_o [...]
