Sometimes, weird things happen. You think you're in the middle of the greatest art slump of your life, which has gone on for *so* long that you don't even feel bothered by it anymore. And then along comes a totally wonderful person commissioning me to do a picture of Túrin Turambar. And, three days later, goes on to commission a second of Maedhros, both in watercolour and art nouveau style. And suddenly the muse hits me with a mallet. Yes, she did. Out of nowhere. O_o
So, here's a teeny-tiny preview to a series-to-be that I jokingly refer to as "Silmarillion Guys and Their Swords". Oh dear, my Year Eight is going to kill me if I don't manage to finish marking their English test until next week too...!
I haven't felt this happy about drawing... since my last Maedhros pic. Which was... 2004? Oh my. Old love never dies. ^^
