Fanart: Merlin 003. by mushroomtale Fanart: Merlin 003. by mushroomtale
I didn't want you to feel... that you were alone.

OMG THIS NEEDS TO STOP. Guilty pleasure making me so guilty. :iconohgodwhyplz:

I now imagine an unrealistic life where I have the most regular non-art-related day job and just draw Merlin fanart and read Merlin fanfiction the rest of the time.

Many thanks to sweet ~Laureli for suggesting this particular Merthur scene, cos I couldn't decide on just one. :iconforeheadkissplz:

ARTHUR! :heart:
I love the simple color pallet you have chosen for these, and the brush strokes really work well with the theme as well!
I really like the development of Arthur through the seasons, from a prat to a real prince :love:

You did it!! And the way you did it!! Ooh... This is giving me feelings right now, which is a bit bad since I'm at work at the moment, in an open-plan office... *swallowing tears frantically*

Now, where do I begin... First of all, composition, you gave us Merlins side profile, beautiful sad side profile, with worried knitted brow and sad eyes, giving him tons of feelings. And you show us Arthur, not blurry like the scene might have suggested, but sharp and harsh, full of suppressed emotions. And the staircase that binds it all together. (I kind of really, really hoped that you would incorporate to the work...)

Then the lighting. That's really one big reason why I love that scene. When Arthur opens the door and brings the blinding sunlight with him. You made it brilliantly, his palms barely visible and specs of dust glowing.

Last but not least, details. I was a bit worried, when I realized that Arthur was wearing a chainmail in this scene. Would you have patience for it, 'cos I surely wouldn't. But then I happened to see your other works, and I was suddenly worried no more, and for a reason, I see :D

(WTF I'm NEVER this poetic, what on earth are you doing to me!?)

So, as promised I'll send a :llama: your way! And of course thank you for doing this. I feel like such a fangirl...

Aww, thank you, my Dear! You are always so awesome and generous with your comments... :iconchuuplz: :heart: :heart: :heart:

I don't think this scene is complete without the staircase cos it shows how small Merlin is, and suggests how cold castle walls can be... hence Merlin wanting to stay by Arthur's side during this time. *flying tears* Feelings!!!

Oh, I was actually hoping no one would notice the chainmail! When I was plotting the drawing and realized Arthur was wearing chainmail, I immediately panicked. LOL. In the end, I did it in a quickest way possible without looking too sloppy because this series was supposed to let off steam and not create stress for OC me, but nevertheless it was the toughest challenge for this image!

I think I would never, ever do an image where I would have to detail every link in the chainmail, though. Like you, I would probably go crazy... But, thank you for caring so much! I'm still surprised you noticed those small details. And I'm really glad you like it! *bow* :iconsobcryplz:

Please, be poetic all you want! I'm really glad that suddenly all the comments are not so formal and restricted. Let us fangirl together!

Thank you for my Llama!!! :smooch: :smooch: :smooch: :heart: :heart: :heart:

You're so welcome :)

I think the chainmail looks spectacular. It really has more details than I anticipated, since your Merlin series is a tad more impressionist than your other work.

:plotting:Now, what else could I make you do...:plotting:

Yeah, right, as if...

So, a quick, obvious one:
That part in "His Father's Son" where Merlin helps Arthur kill that giant, and Arthur looks up at Merlin, who is still standing on the cliff. (top right->)[link]

Screen captures:

Ok, so there's the damn chainmail again. And I seem to have a tendency liking scenes where Merlin looks like somebody kicked his puppy... If you feel like making something happy and fluffy, you need to ask somebody else :D

OMGGG. I now think believe are enough Merthur scenes to last me a lifetime. *claws in the air*

This is definitely a must-draw. *adds to list*

Would it be so wrong if I include Morgana in the pic? Your opinion, now, please.
