This is a bit of a different style for me, but I thought I'd have a play about with it. It was inspired by the style of some Charles Robinson illustrations that I saw.

Thank you so much!!

I don't usually do whole scenes, so it was interesting trying to do a whole scene and put the light in and stuff.

Ahhh, amazing, amazing! I love this style! I love the curves and points and rays of light, and the way Merlin and Arthur seem to be joined at the hip. I can't stop staring. WOW.

Oh man, this is yours? I've seen it somewhere, but i don't think the source was attributed. Love it... looks muchly like something from Edmund Dulac... lovely pen & ink work, and composition :)

:iconobsidianserpent:
ObsidianSerpent Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
Well that's SUCH a huge compliment, as I LOVE Dulac. (Not that I could ever get anywhere NEAR as good as him obviously, but I was going for a sorta fairytale-book look with this one, so I'm really chuffed it seemed to work.)

Thank you very much. :)

I'm looking forward to episode 2 on Saturday, the trailer the BBC have been showing makes it look pretty epic.

Oh wow; This is amazing!
The amount of detail that's go into this is tygfgg

When I'm better at writing I would love to write a story based on one of your drawings xxx

:iconobsidianserpent:
ObsidianSerpent Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011
Thank you so much.

Well compared to one of the Charles Robinson drawings it's not detailed at all. ...But I am impatient and like to get things finished, so I cut corners. *G*

Your writing is very good!

You can write around one of my pictures anytime you like. xxx

(I can't draw around someone else's writing at the moment though, since I am WAY over-committed with all sorts of projects and need to see them through first.)

Also if you're looking for inspiration FOR Merlin you just have to watch this:

Thanks for the link to the clip. Great video, I love the way she's incorporated so many great Merlin and Arthur moments into it.

S1 was great for Merlin and Arthur moments, season 2 has some. Season 3 was pretty lacking in them. I'm hoping season 4 will bring us lots of them, episodes 1 and 2 look promising so far.

Completely agree. I hate to break it to you... but apparently there's meant to be a... rift between Arthur/Knights and Merlin. So that means more dark, angst Merlin to come. (Which is fine by me...)

Oooooh... *puts fingers in ears and starts singing "la la la" very loudly*

:lol:

Don't tell me any spoilers, I avoid them like the plague. I try to not even see any advance photos from the shooting.

I love to see each episode with NO idea of what's going to happen next. I don't mind the BBC trailers...since they are unavoidable as they come on TV at odd moments. But anything else I try not to hear about. :)

:ohmygod: :stupidme: I'm so sorry, it's just what the cast & writers said in interviews.
Don't worry; from now on my lips are sealed.

Again I'm so sorry.
It was just in my mind because of the way Gwaine was acting in the first ep :worry:.

:iconobsidianserpent:
ObsidianSerpent Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011
Ah, that's okay, no worries. (Yeah, I've even avoided cast interviews because I don't want to know.)

I know most people LOVE spoilers, but to me it's like reading the last pages of a novel first, just to see how it turns out. (though I know people who DO that. *G* Each to their own)

Like I said, no problem, (and of course I AM intrigued by what you said and dying to see where that goes in the series. :) )

But don't tell me anymore, please. :hug:
