Here is what happened. Years ago when I made this piece, my computer died and I lost the big resolution files.

(That's right folks, always save your work on an external hard-drive).

:icondetail: Detail decided to buy my copyrights for the 4 hamster pieces I made, I didn't have the big files anymore. So we decided that I rework the pieces, keep them them same but in a huge resolution.

:icondetail: Detail is also announcing a comic about the cute warrior hamsters. [link]

The piece before being re-worked. [link]

Ok, here is a quick ref to Carladiel my Hobbit/LotR OC. I actually came up with her when I was still a kid and wrote Hobbit fan fics. She used to basically look like what 9year old me thought 16-17 year old me would look like :XD: After a while though, I started to change things around and make her into an actual character. (the only things that resemble me in her are her eyes and hair color XD)

Impossibly long description warning!
Since there isn't a whole lot of info about a lot of women in Tolkien's works, it was rather easy for me to weave my character into the story. :P
:bulletgreen:Parents and backstory: Carladiel was a daughter of Brand (king of Dale) and a half elf-Helin (violet in elvish) (in my story he married her after Bard II's mum died (and I had her die in childbirth--yes I was a morbid child :XD: ). C also had two older sisters.

-->More info about Helin's family: her mum is nameless for now. She was an elf and married a mortal man (a lord from Rohan)That was basically considered a misalliance by her family and she was disowned and her father cursed her and her offspring (that will play a role later-on). She had one daughter: Helin. After the death of her husband no one knew what happened to her.
--> info about Carladiel's name: She was supposed to be named Caerȃddiêl (10 paths under a star in Sindarin because of the way her eyes looked like (more info later on)) but Brand didn’t want to have any of that weird sounding elvishness so it got shortened to Caradiel and somehow turned to Carladiel to make it sound softer…Helin wasn’t pleased X’D
-->Carladiel’s necklace: she was given it as a gift from the dwarves when she was born. The stone glows red whenever there is/or is going to be bloodshed (like during battles or hunting)

Now, since Dale is located between Mirkwood and the Lonely Mountain and since it's mentioned somewhere that Brand had a good relationship with the dwarves I had Dale interact with both of the places; C's mum being a half elf made it easier to maintain an alliance w/the Mirkwood elves.
So Helin would send her daughters to Mirkwood and Rivendell to learn how to be refined young ladies, but Carladiel was sort of a lost cause. Instead of learning to play the harp and sing she would rather sneak in to her father’s meetings and listen to the dwarves tell stories of old battles (they’d never talk to her about the Battle of 5 Armies though (important later)). Also, much to her mum’s annoyance, she really had an affinity to the dwarves and would sneak out to talk and hunt with them. Basically the only elf she tolerated was Legolas and that’s mainly because of his archery skills. He’d call her “mellon vrûn” (old friend)—and she basically thought it was some quirk of his XD

When she went to Rivendell when she was 12-13 she would basically lock herself in and would read ancient books and skip her lessons. XD (also important later on). In the meantime one of C’s older sisters was married off to someone in Gondor.

About a year before Elrond’s council, Brand sent his wife, C and C’s sister to Rivendell to keep them safe. On the way there they were attacked by orcs and C’s mum and sister were killed.
---ok this next part is sort of stupid, but remember that this was made up by younger me---
Carladiel becomes a tad obsessed w/what happened and starts looking through all those ancient books she once found in Rivendell. Turns out one of them has spells. She tries to make a spell to go back in time and save her mum and sister, but messes up horrendously (mostly because she has no idea what she’s doing :iconfacepalmplz: ) and gets thrown back to Rivendell pre-Hobbit time. There she meets Thorin&Co. Of course they don’t believe her, but since she knew some of them (like Dwalin, Bombur, etc) she basically knew exactly what to say/do to convince them. XD She became rather close to everyone, especially Fili and Kili (due to their mischievous-prank-loving nature). She also totally, fangirls over Thorin, being all “Would you like some wine master Thorin—would you like the rabbit I hunted,” etc :XD: She fights along them in the Battle of the 5 Armies (here I made an alternate ending where everyone survived, but changed it back to the original story-line later on *cries in a corner*) and takes Thorin, Fili, and Kili’s death really badly. After everything is over she returns to Rivendell, where after a few years she finds out about her g-ma’s curse…which makes her immortal (you know eternal suffering and all). She basically hangs out at Rivendell and travels around Middle Earth, unable to really find a place for herself. During her travels she meets Legolas and becomes friends with him. She slowly starts embracing her elven side and goes back to Rivendell, leaving only when her “younger self” comes there. When LotR time comes again she fights in the Battle of Dale and then after the War of the Ring is over joins Legolas and Gimli in their journeys.

:bulletgreen:Physical info
-height-5’7’’-ish :new: She was about 5'4-5'5" ish when she met Thorin&CO (when she was about 15-16ish)
-eyes-blue-grey with 10 white “stars” around the rim
-hair-auburn
-traits-stubborn, fun-loving, a tom-boy, overly loyal–later more quiet and serious, but has her “old-self outbursts” XD
-skills-great at horseback riding (yay Rohan genes XD), and archery, not so good at swordfighting, but keeps a shortsword/really long dagger, speaks Sindarin, can talk to thrushes (like everyone in her family), apparently is god awful at spells XD
-clothing choices-mostly earthy toned hunting clothes (sort of like Legolas' but a tad girlier XD) Sometimes seen wearing a dress XD

Here's another commission for ~Squeake of some friend's RPG characters! It was a lot of fun, it's been a while since I've done this much perspective drawing, definitely need to brush up on it. I ended up having 75 different layers for the drawing stage cause I was sorting out each element in multiple passes, haha, but I think it turned out well.

Definitely gonna try and do more complex pieces like this, they're a fun challenge!

Thanks for looking!

probably why i didnt get into sheridan?

this was my favourite piece in my portfolio, but they gave me a column of 0's for it. the 1 for creativity broke my heart, to me it tells a story at least. i probably should have lined some things? but in the application outline it said to leave things rough and loose. SERIOUSLY THOUGH.

eh.

i'm going to BC to grow weed. i guess this has saved me in a way from 4 years of shelling out money i dont have and toiling to make hideous garbage for cereal commercials for people with no taste. i could really use a real job though. the oven is slowly destroying my hands, and the onions are blinding.

<3 commissions will come in email.

thank you *YamiNoMalik for holding my hand through this horror i am sorry for failing you :( lets go to fiji.



-edit-

sorry i take back the goodbye crap. i'm not gonna let this get to me. i know my first reaction is to QUIT DA FOREVER and smoke a bowl every time im hearbroken, but really, this time? i'm more just pissed.

it's been a lifelong dream of mine to go to this school, to learn to make my dreams real, all that shit. to breathe new life into traditional animation. to make oldschool disney films again. to make people inspired. to end this terrible reign of computer animated garbage wrecking the minds of our youth. honestly. if you liked shrek, you're ..special.

i'll have to do it without them i guess. and if i REALLY wanted to go, if i really wanted to, i'd just move to toronto and break into every class anyways. i never wanted their approval or their marks either, i need more education so badly and they have so... so much lifedrawing. the biggest thing in my mind was the fact that you have to work really hard once you get there, and that was what i needed. i guess i'll have to work even harder without guidance. i'm more just infuriated that they promote themselves as being so amazing when now, clearly, they're FUCKING rude. do you want to see the characters they gave us to make a storyboard with?

[link]

when i first saw this... oh for fuck's sake. tbh i didn't want to get in.

no wonder animation in north america is dead. if this is supposedly one of the best schools... animation is just a CAREER now, and i'm sure they hear all this idealistic garbage all the time from people with big dreams and it must suck to have to shatter them but damn. i don't know.

just... fuck, man. now i'm relieved it was all just a huge joke. i tricked myself into wanting something that didnt exist. i'll fix this somehow bebes. be patient. i'll make yall something awesome.

still cant be around as much as i was. i didn't make rent while i worked on folios and i'm still struggling to break even now and to even find the energy to finish drawings but now that i have closure on this i feel a bit relieved and inspired. why is this all in a scrap and not a journal? because i'm mental.

i'm sorry DA. i know ive neglected you. and i shouldn't punish my DA folk just because i was so mistaken about something. you guys gave me the courage to try, and from this i've learned that my success is in my hands and not in an instutution i couldn't respect anyways. in a way i will have to work a lot harder to create and improve in the ways that i want to (anatomically, structurally, mostly, the ADD is what needs to go), but i think in the end you will end up with better things to look at.

thank you sheridan, and for those accepted, don't let them suck the very marrow of ur souls. please do let me know what you learn there so that they can be surpassed and conquered. there will be better someday.

anyone else seen paprika?

1. the overall view of Glintadale Island, where the moon elves live. The Moon Goddess Glintadale is in charge of spiritual power, ocean waves, and prophethy. Weather is pretty mild just like New Zealand on earth, no drastic difference of temperature. Heavy rain, moist air, and you can see forest, prairie, lakes everywhere, especially forest. Therefore, as a result, herbal medical treatments and art of gardening are what many of the elves are good at. Fishery, animal husbandry are quite popular and prospered. As for farming, they grow a lot of fruits and wheats.
Transportationwise, huge parrots, dragonlings are prefered for flying, while horses and some huge birds that cannot fly are chosen for ground transportations.
Moon elves generally have a good relationship with the sea elves since they do share a common belief. The Moon Goddess are also praised by some sea elves.
(The darker blue patch indicates where the sea elves are active)
2. Rocks of Lament: This is a speedy concept, nothing too solid yet. The moon elves say, if you are smart you should probably avoid this area. This area was once a popular site for committing suicide and drowning, now surrounded by ghosts who are rejected by the goddess after they die.
3. This is the original concept for the major city Silver Arch, now it is ABANDONED and I have a new concept. I will probably deliver the new imagery of silver arch after a week or two weeks. The thumb in (1) shows the new imagery, it is done.

The whole purpose of posting these is to keep updating with new speed paintings for attractions.
