The New Companion by Sieskja The New Companion by Sieskja
"Hear me sing
Watch me dance
Play that lute of thine
And share with me this dance"


Nightwish - Once upon a troubadour
Ariane, Thilde and Ansvald, the cat Timiga and the horse Cabriole. Eternal travellers and dreamers.

That kind of composition is well-inspired by an illustrator I like a lot...

And the answer is...
:bulletyellow: Jackie Morris :bulletyellow: [link]

J'aime beaucoup ce dessin !! La façon dont est chargé le cheval me fait un peu penser à un truc de saltimbanque :) ça fait rêver !! et puis le petit Timiga et trop mignon a regarder les oiseaux, peut être pense t'-il a en faire son gouter hihi ! Ou bien il a peur d'être attaqué XD
En tout cas il y a deux personnages dont tu n'as jamais parlé, c'est Thilde et Ansvald ... Alors petite cachotière ?? XD

Mais ce sont précisément des saltimbanques!! =D
Et tu as exactement raison pour Timiga! XD J'allais te répondre mot pour mot ce que tu as écrit XD

Thilde et Ansvald sont des sortes d'artistes itinérants, racontant des histoires et présentant des tours. C'est un peu la famille adoptive d'Ariane ^^
C'est quasiment la première fois que je les dessine Oo Et que j'en parle aussi, c'est vrai Oo Ohlàlà je trouve ces histoires tellement peu abouties que je n'ose pas en parler... ><

Et hop, je commente enfin !
J'aime beaucoup cette illustration. J'adore l'ambiance, et tout est très beau ! Ça fait rêver. Je trouve le cheval plus expressif que dans certains autres dessins !
Et avant d'avoir pensé à Jackie Morris, j'avais pensé à L'Adoration des Mages de Giotto (certainement parce que le personnage tout à droite me fait penser à un roi mage) XD Mais je crois que c'est un bon signe que ça me fasse penser à un artiste comme ça... ;)
Juste, à moins que tu ne le fasses déjà... Essaye de travailler en anatomie. Ça peut être barbant (quoique moi j'adore ça !) Bon je chipote un peu, ne le prends pas mal. C'est pas du tout choquant d'ailleurs.

Initialement le cheval n'avait pas cette tête là, mais en fait c'est bien comme ça. Il a l'air de se demander ce qu'il lui arrive oÔ
Ok, un roi mage....... XD C'est bon à savoir!! Enfin tu n'as pas tort, par de nombreux côtés les illustrations de Jackie Morris me font aussi penser à ça, aux fêtes de Noël, les anges, les processions sous la neige et les étoiles, tout ça...

Tu as raison pour l'anatomie =/ Mais ça me gonfle, tu sais!! Surtout en ce qui concerne les hommes.

On dirait qu'il vient de se lever et de se 'faire trainer', mmh :lol:
Ça doit être ça ! Puis là, ce doivent être les vêtements du personnage, le fait qu'ils soient trois et le fait qu'ils soient en marche avec tout un bazar qui ont du se mélanger dans mon cerveau et résultat j'ai pensé à un roi mage XD

Oh ? Tu n'aimes même pas faire des portraits réalistes de tes amis, ou essayer de dessiner ton homme ? Ça peut se faire comme ça après tout !

Outch, non non pas de réalisme :noes:
D'une part je n'aime pas les portraits "photo-réalistes" et d'une autre ça ne ressemblerait pas du tout XD
Mais pour faire les profils masculins c'est vrai qu'il y a quelques années je m'étais entraînée sur lui XD

Ça peut être juste des petits croquis et gribouillis stylisés ! En plus c'est très rapide à réaliser, et tu peux les cacher, les jeter... D'accord j'arrête la propagande ;__;

I don't know if I should guess the name :P

Ariane feels like dancing and I love the patterns on Thilde's dress... not to mention the birds on Cabriole's neck :3 I see you're providing some diffrences? More people, a further landscape... (:

Haha please wait some days, maybe there will be a good answer before. *still hope*

Yes it's a very happy and carefree period of her life. I realized that I like drawing various period without any order. It must be hard to understand x)

Indeed I have not the habit of this kind of simplistic landscape.
But the hardest was to draw Ansvald... I never know how to draw the pose and the clothes...

You've dealt quite well with drawing him, nothing to worry about. Perhaps the left foot is placed in a weird way, but I'd not care about that if I were you (:

I think I have found the name, but I am struggling to make out the letters. I do believe it starts with a X but I cannot see what the other letters are
