'she spoke no word' by barbarasobczynska 'she spoke no word' by barbarasobczynska
it's a commission piece for the wonderful

the requested topic was a couple of wild boars in the forest:) i don't know why but i think animals are probably the easiest and the nicest things for me to draw so i really love to realize such topics:)

oh, and i took the title from one of my favourite parts of J.R.R.Tolkien's "Silmarillion", because i thought the romantic moment the two wild boars are having in the picture must be similar to the beautifully written one when Thingol met Melian on the cards of the lovely Tolkien's book:

"She spoke no word; but being filled with love Elw came to her(...)and straightway a spell was laid on him, so that they stood thus while long years were measured by the wheeling stars above them; and the trees (...) grew tall and dark before they spoke any word." [The Silmarillion, Of Thingol and Melian - J.R.R. Tolkien]

Czym rysujesz?
Zazdroszczę talentu. Próbowałam kiedyś rysować, ale chyba brakuje mi do tego cierpliwości. Nie wychodzi tak jak chcę. Może w wakacje spróbuję jeszcze raz

You know, there's far too little good wild boar art - this is a real stunner. Visually appealing, a wonderful mood and exceptionally creative. Very well executed. :)

i don't know if you're still here on dA... i just read your reply, and i so would like to tell you, that many years ago in spring i saw two courting spiders - i had this quiet moment for myself, so i took the time and watched them silently for quite a while... i couldn't believe my eyes, they were so much like human teenagers in first love - i almost could have sworn that i saw little pinkish hearts hovering above them... there are not many people who i can talk to about this, but after seeing your most wonderful heartwarming piece and reading your words, i dare to tell you... :D
thank you for sharing your art...

The Silmarilion rocks, as well as the rest of Tolkien's works...

I found it funny though, I mean the quote applied to the boar couple... :P

Wow..it's so dark and tense, but still dreamy and somewhat serene at the same time...
And it make the boars look so gentle; that's something you don't see so much. Beautiful work. :)

Definitely a +fav. I love the natural, old-style, soft feel to it. And wild boars! This is the first time I've seen them illustrated. :heart: I love the parallel to the Silmarillion, oddly appropriate and touching, perhaps because your style feels so much like Tolkein's illustrating style and evokes a primitive, divine world.
