Llywelyn ab Iared by Gold-Seven Llywelyn ab Iared by Gold-Seven
Llywelyn ab Iared, Llelo for short, thirteen, youngest son of Prince Iared of Tangnafedd, usually good-natured, just a bit stubborn, and sometimes displaying flashes of pure tactical genius.

A rather quick one, but still. :)

Pencil, parchment, Photoshop.

"ap" is used when the next word starts with a consonant, "ab" is used when it's a vowel. ;) I've done my homework. :D

Ahhh, well my Welsh teacher was wrong, haha XD She always tought us that it was -ALWAYS- 'ap'. Daym.

Out of interest, have you been researching the North or the South Welsh language and traditions etc? :} I'm from the South and the languages are quite differenet :}

But isn't the change from "p" to "b" before a vowel a very common Welsh consonant assimilation (Cymru/Gymru)? It sounds logical enough to me. :)

No, I wish I was! I'm German. :) Any real welshman or -woman would probably have their toenails curling at my feeble attempts in my story. ;)

Heh XD Have you ever been to Wales? Its so, SO beautiful here {but you have to go deep into the country and not just stop at Cardiff like most people do :p} I live right on the coast on the South West side and its one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I highly reccomend it!

This is a beautiful arrangement. I like how you included the varying emotions in sketch above the painting of him. A wonderful character, all full of boyish charm and a little mischeviousness, unless I misread the look in those eyes.

You know, I was looking back over these, and couldn't help but notice that you don't sell any of them as prints. If you ask me, these are as cool as any of the others, you should consider selling prints of them.
