It shouldn’t surprise anyone anymore that I’m behind with everything readalong related.
So, I used to be very interested in calligraphy and illumination in high school. Eventually I just ran out of time to continue it, but I’ve never been very good anyway. Sometimes I will still get my old tools out if I really have a vision of something. So I really wanted to make something for the Maiar of the Sun and the Moon in The Silmarillion.
For Arien I wanted the effect of the sun and spurts of fire. I’m happy with how it turned out. For Tilion I wanted the calmer moonlight, less explosive and more soft lines. I’m not sure if I like how it turned out.
Arty-details: gouache and watercolour
and a bit of acrylic shhh on this really great thick paper. I wish I knew the gsm of this paper as it’s perfect for calligraphy but actually it’s the torn-off backs of my parents’ leftover wedding invitations from 40 years ago. I’m recycling them.
Time: 4h 20 min for Arien and probably a bit more for Tilion. I know exactly because that’s the time it took to
watch listen to The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger while I painted.
Sorry I don’t have access to a scanner anymore and also for the long ramble.
I’d like to follow some more discworld blogs? So if you post discworld, please reblog this? Thanks!
