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.


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:
