I have a bad feeling by Moumou38 I have a bad feeling by Moumou38
English below ;p don't worry ! !

Vacances de mi-semestre !! préparation de partiels mais vacances quand même !! je n’avais pas vécu ça depuis le lycée…j’en suis émue aux larmes.

J’ai souvent (pas tout le temps) mes idées par grande « inspiration divine ». Au moment où je m’y attends le moins, j’ai une image qui me vient en tête. Une idée assez claire du dessin puis vient le moment le plus compliqué : essayer de mettre cette idée sur un support concret.
Pourquoi est-ce que je vous dis ça ? parce que c’est de cette façon que m’est venue l’idée de ce dessin.
Comme je l’avais expliqué pour celui là : [link] La version verte avec la tête de Celeborn n’était qu’une sorte digression dans mon processus de création car j’avais beaucoup de mal à avancer sur ma version couleur.

Avoir des idées, c’est bien, mais savoir les reproduire est tout de suite très compliqué. C’est généralement par souci technique lors de l’exécution que les idées changent et évoluent dans un sens ou dans un autre.

Pour celui là, l’histoire de sa création est un peu particulière.

Je me suis réveillée en plein milieu de la nuit avec un étrange sentiment. La première chose à laquelle j’ai pensé a été Galadriel à Valinor, se levant en plein milieu de la nuit comme dérangée par un étrange sentiment que je ne saurais décrire malgré cet endroit où elle est censée avoir trouvé la paix.
A quoi pense-elle ? serait-ce son amour Celeborn ? serait-ce la mort prochaine de sa petite-fille Arwen ? le doute quant au destin de ses petits-fils Elladan et Elrohir ? le futur de la Terre du Milieu maintenant que les elfes sont presque tous partis ?

Je ne sais pas vraiment, la question reste ouverte…

A propos de la partie « dessin » ; je voulais tester de nouvelles couleurs ainsi qu’une nouvelle façon de gérer les volumes en tentant de faire vibrer certaines teintes. J’espère que ça ne semble pas trop bizarre.

Vous pouvez voir l'évolution du dessin ici sur le walkthrough !




<div align="center">..................................................

Holidays!

Let's speak about the illustration :

I often (not always) have my ideas as "divine inspiration". When I expect it the least , I have an image that comes to mind. A fairly clear idea of the design and then comes a more complicated part : trying to put this idea on a concrete support.
Why do I say this? because that's how I got the idea for this drawing. As I explained for this one: [link] The green version with the head of Celeborn was a sort of digression in the creation of this drawing, because I had great difficulties moving forward on my color version.

Having ideas is great, but doing something with them is another thing... very complicated.

For this one, the creation story is a bit special. I woke in the middle of the night with a strange feeling. The first thing I thought was Galadriel in Valinor, waking in the middle of the night disturbed by a strange feeling that I can not describe in this place where she was supposed to have found peace.
What was she thinking? about her beloved, Celeborn? is it the imminent death of her granddaughter Arwen? doubt on the fate of her grandsons Elladan and Elrohir? the future of Middle-earth now that the elves are almost all gone?

I do not know really, the question remains open ...

About the "design" part, I wanted to try out new colors and a new way to manage volumes. Trying to shake some colors. I hope it does not seem too weird.

I also posted the walkthrough here :

The feeling I'm getting is that this is Valinor.  Since it's dark, it could be the darkening of the Two Trees.  Great illustration.

Me too. It is really hard to find pictures when they are happy, and in love with each other. Many people... for some reason... think that they were unhappy together. Or worst of all that Celeborn was her... kind of henpecked husband, who always stay in the shade of grand wife. For me it's madness! Their marriage is unusual and rare interlacement of love, respect and, yes, there is a little officialism between them. But they are no man. They are elves from the ancient days, they have found each other when the world was young, and for now... They passed through so much challenges and pains of looses. They should not be crazy lovers with a little hearts flying around their heads. That is why I am so in love with your representation of them and their hidden passion, they keep only for them self and not showing everyone.
:woohoo:

well I'm glad you like what I do....I hope that my drawings show another side of those characters. We always see them as mighty lord/lady...very cold, distant, powerful and important people....but they're people as well, with fear and feelings :) so it's very interesting to get into it

Surtout que les couleurs viennent soutenir l'expression et font ressortir les traits.

Bravo! Ce'st formidable! J'adore son éxpression: elle est très triste, je crois comme tu dit, parce-ce que sa famille lui manque... son mari, ses petits-enfants... Mais maintenant elle est réunie avec sa fille, Celebrían, en Valinor! Elle doit etre heureuse... =D
Reply
:iconmoumou38:
Moumou38 Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
merci beaucoup ^^ oui elle devrait être heureuse mais pas complètement car en retrouvant une partie de sa famille (Celebrian, ses parents), elle en a perdu une autre (Celeborn, Arwen, Elledan, Elrohir). Donc même en étant à Valinor, elle n'a pa pu complètement trouver le paix.

J'aime infiniment son expression, comme "hantée". On dirait que les ombres jouent avec son visage comme une espèce de signe funeste, comme si sa radieuse personne allait être assombri par un événement tragique... On sent une incroyable tension dans ton dessin, c'est très cinématographique dans sa composition! Et sa robe est superbe, avec une petite inspiration greco-romaine du plus bel effet :)

AH oui les dessins qui font pop en plein milieu de la nuit :D j'ai toujours une feuille blanche et un crayon près du lit pour pouvoir faire un rapide sketch et marquer pleins d'annotations sur les couleurs les textures... avant que tout disparaisse :D

En tout cas ce dessin est une véritable inspiration divine, tu as été touchée par la grâce des Valar pour nous offrir une telle merveille!

merci beaucoup, j'espère que la grâce des Vala me viendra plus souvent parce que c'est très inspirant xD ! bon par contre, la nuit c'est pas pratique xD

J'aime bien le fait que tu parle de "signe funeste" car ça colle parfaitement avec le thème, ou du moins l'idée globale. On ne sait pas exactement mais on n'est pas super à l'aise non-plus.
