Henry Page

drawn Oct 5, ’11

(785)

This is Henry from LinT and Lintier and The Illusionist’s Apprentice, and he is a human apprenticed to a powerful elven illusionist named Teitnl (The Evil Illusionist That Nobody Likes) (except for the fangirls). He’s a fairly minor character in the LinTverse as a whole, but an interesting one.

I’m practicing my ability to draw anime-styled hair, and also cell-shading. That’s why it looks so wierd. Also, Colby is the only one who can really draw Henry properly. : P

I may do this again with ‘real’ shading. : P Because abruptly I hate this picture.

I’m too tired to go to salsa, so here I am trying to clear out a bit of my art list over on the left. Ummmm… doing a book report on Widor. Struggled through some German today for Performance Research. My partner was a French-Canadian lad (with a phone connected to the Internet, so he was able to translate more than me, although I helped with interpretation).

Chorale is fun. Is this what Chamber Singers is like (except about three times as big)?

Okay, next on the list I think is Mikomi and then Lam’ro.

If anyone wants to chat, I’m logged in on a number of places where friends can reach me.

EDIT: Oops I started poking around on DA and now I’m drawing Kyla. It’s gonna be a pretty picture, though.

painted June 20, ’11

Teitnl! The Evil Illusionist That Nobody Likes, an elf and illusionist and wacky philosopher from LinT. He appears here!

He’s a pretty monochrome kind of guy, so I added the searingly bright rainbow to balance. : P

I really do envy Colby’s ability to draw gorgeous bishounen. It’s pretty amazing. Such wispy hair!

Now, Teitnl is very bishie. But you should see his red-headed assistant/apprentice, Henry. Henry is exceedingly cute. And so long-suffering! (I guess you could say Teitnl is also long-suffering. But Henry is the sane one.)

Influence Meme

filled in Sep 30, ’10

Okay, I saw this on the True Magic art blog and had to fill it in.

L-R, top-bottom, in no particular order of influence:

True Magic itself. It is a lovely, lovely webcomic, and was one of the first to introduce me to the concept of webcomic. Its self-proclaimed ABC’s (Adventure, Bishounen, Comedy) was a perfect combo and Gauth (pictured) is for me the quintessential Man of Mystery.

Norouet: a French-Canadian traditional band. I love listening to their music and it is hugely inspiring, whether it’s of images of wild, unearthly elven dancing, or just to get me the energy to write and draw.

Fire Emblem: how I learned to draw anime was by tracing these guys. A long, long time ago. Also the story of FE7 is really fantastic; it was like nothing I’d ever read or played before. It was deep. …Back then.

Winter Harp: my favourite music for writing. Very medieval sounding, with harps! Perfect for the majority of my writing projects.

Music, particularly Organs: MUSIC IS MY LIFE. In case you didn’t get that already. It’s where about 75% of my inspiration comes from, for characters, events, plots, cultures, anything you can think of.

Star Wars: Heehee. Heroes and villains!

British Columbia, Canada: Gorgeous scenery. It underlies all the Adhemlenei, even though it’s probably subconscious still at this point.

Miyazaki: anime, but not over the top, with deep stories and occasionally very pretty guys. ^_^

LinT: the second webcomic I ever read. I love Colby’s style, which is an odd blend of other stuff, but it comes across very well. Also her story is both funny and dramatic.

Awkward Zombie: hilarious expressions. Nuff said.

Legend of Zelda: elves! Quests! Sacred swords and objects and things! Quests! Elves!

Professor Tolkien: of course he gets the 3×3. His amazing world both broad and deep and filled with characters and races and quests and swords and light and dark is, of course, the inspiration for modern fantasy everywhere. As opposed to archaic fantasy, which is legends and myths. But legends and myths… just aren’t the same as when you put it all together in a whole world. It’s breathtaking what this one man did.

There’s all kinds of things I’ve left out, like my Dad’s big influence, some of my friends, Bruce Lee, my piano teachers… I might have said it before, but actually EVERYTHING is an influence on my world, if not my art. Everything can be taken and integrated somehow. My art… kind of grew on its own, really. But if I kept to the literal influences on my visual art, I don’t think this chart would be so interesting. So you get some tenuous connections. But I think it’s worth it.

First, a very Merry Christmas (or whatever you happen to celebrate) from all of us here at the Adhemlenei. People in this picture: Marteth, Bayn, Gyoriing, Lyrestan; Mathaning, Gullac, Zela, Flaer, Yoeath; Flaria, Jalril, Flairé, Tam, Rana; Ceniro, Leslie, Jennifer, Esgalwen. Quite a number! Didn’t have room to fit in Silver, but we all know she wishes you a Merry Christmas too. Yes? Yes.

Jalril is just embarrassed at standing next to a girl. Who’s dating his brother. She thinks he’s funny. And cute. Tam is a cloooooowwwwn. X D Flairé is wearing his princely-type tunic which you haven’t seen before! It’s red.

Eeeeeee I’m so excited!

Below are the Christmas presents I drew for the various webcomics I read.

yasashisaniicon This was the Christmas that my brother gave me inking pens!! I immediately tried them out by drawing Christmas presents for my favourite webcomics, starting with LinT. So Sangwine’s legs are a little short and the lines are rather sketchy. (I did use a pencil first, btw.) But that’s okay! I’m not sure what’s happening, but it’s supposed to be funny.

I got a TON of organ music out from the library yesterday! I’m so excited! I’m going to play in the local RCCO Pipes and Goblins concert at St. Mary’s, I think, in Oak Bay, I think, and if you want to know what I’m playing, well, it’s a pretty epic piece but you’ll have to come to find out! Or ask me. I will tell you if you ask me.

I also taught an organ student yesterday. Both highly stressful and less stressful than I expected.

I’m going to be volunteering at the Rueda booth at UVic ClubsDays in the SUB from 9:00-10:30 this morning, so come down and check it out! Rueda is awesome. Though I can’t do Cetenta either as lead or follow. And afterwards, in free dance, Jon showed me how to lead a little in ‘regular’ (couple) salsa. But it’s wierd leading Jon. Usually he leads. And he’s very good at it.
