Fanart: Merlin 002. by mushroomtale Fanart: Merlin 002. by mushroomtale
"It's... lonely..."

Told you guys there would be more.

Merlin, again. I chose a sad theme, because I was feeling under the weather the other day. I'm feeling much better now, though! :happycry:

Sorry, this is the best I could do. I was extremely distracted because of the disco party happening behind my eyes every time I glanced at the source picture. Do you remember this scene? Merlin, smiling through his tears, just, so heart-rending, I can't take it, I wanted so much to ohwaitthisisn'tTumblr. :trollface:

Still, Merlin breaks my heart into little pieces all the time, no matter the mood of the scene. :upset: :heart:

BTW, I just love old Emrys! His toothy grin, his explosive cackle, and the way he hisses his words -- aaall of it makes me so very, very happy. :woohoo: :heart: But, now that that's done, maybe I can move on to something with Arthur for my next piece? ;) Maybe not as soon, though. Homeworrrk.

Spotlight.



My Tumblr.



On a totally unrelated note, I also have an original online manga, if I could interest anyone...

Soul Dice online manga on MangaMagazine or Smackjeeves.

A masterpiece. The blending, duality, and black and white makes this twice as awesome!

oh gosh, I'm adoring your Merlin paintings right now. Really, you're just making me want to draw Merlin more than I usually do, which wouldn't be such a problem if I didn't have a term paper to be writing right now XD

I just--young Merlin's expression here. You've captured it so well, I actually might start tearing up remembering this scene and looking at how vulnerable you've drawn him. Again, the likeness of both young and old Merlin here is amazing! I love the texture of old Merlin's hair and beard. And again with your vibrant contrasts! I really really adore your style, dear. :hug:

TTvTT I'm really glad you like it! I think I'm liking old Emrys more than I should, but he's so funny and I can see Merlin right through him~~~ Thank you again! :hug: :heart:

...lol, if you insist :meow:

Dragoon is the best. He's so snarky and mean. I love that he pretty much abuses his disguise to take out his annoyance on Arthur and the knights :giggle: Never in a hostile way though XD

How do you doooo it........digital painting ;_; The expression of Merlin in the background is amazing, such expressions are always so hard to draw! I'd be glad to see something with Arthur next *-*; I totally have to find a way to rewatch some of the episodes, it's been too long since I've seen anything of Merlin.

Thank you so much, my Dear! I don't think I can ever copy the emotion on Colin's face. I just try to copy the screencap the best I can... TT^TT Uhuhu... *winds blows*

WATCH IT. Then maybe we can fangirl together, please!? I think there are episodes that you can find online. :smooch: :heart:

XD haha! I'll see...usually it distracts me too much from everything else when I watch stuff ;__;"
I know that feeling ;__; I could go on drawing Sengoku stuff for DAYS, but in the end I can't sell it and all...so yeah. .__.

I sometimes watch some anime when I'm having a coffee break...I would be even more distracted watching something while I'm doing something else on the computer :XD:

Yeah, it's terrible isn't it ._. The Sengoku Musou fandom isn't that big though, there's no anime and all, so it's not that time consuming aside from browsing Japanese fanart sites and Pixiv ... but...but. Sometimes it feels lonely. At cons I always have one print of my fanarts in my portfolio, just for showcasing, and most people don't even recognize it as fanart and want to buy it DX

:iconmushroomtale:
mushroomtale Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Aww, Hunny! :tighthug: :heart: Why don't you translate your manga into Japanese and share it on Pixiv? I bet it will be popular!

I remember having a crush on Zhao Yun from Dynasty Warriors, and it isn't such a huge fandom either... but there are so many gorgeous Japanese fanart, and doujinshi that you could collect! I wish that were true for other fandoms. There's good and bad for each fandom, I guess!

But, you could always label your art during conventions! And you could share it with people. Maybe you could convert a few into fans of the series as well! But, I think the most important thing is that you enjoy it. :hug: :heart:

CyprinusFox Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012   Traditional Artist
Translating into Japanese is difficult ;_;" I also already thought of it. Maybe I'll do it when I finished it completely.

That's true @ collect...I have some, but it's difficult to get it in your hands here in Germany. Everything is super expensive.

I already converted some people I think :XD: and yes, enjoying is the most important, with everything you do in life :>

:iconmushroomtale:
mushroomtale Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Aww. Okay!

OH. Order it online? *A* If you like collecting stuff like that... In my case, I don't normally, so...

Wow! :giggle: Kudos, now you have people to fangirl with. :hug: :heart:
