  • Elric fan-art...*Winces*

    *Curls up*

    ..please don't be too cruel. :(
    This is my first Elric fanart...

    ....I 'll get better! Promise! :o

    I like it - the anime style really lends itself to the character I think. Kind of why I still think that Elric would make a killer anime movie.

    Though if universal are doing the movie - perhaps there'll be an 'intro' anime short for it - like Dark Fury for Chronicles of Riddick.
    Batman: It's a low neighborhood, full of rumpots. They're used to curious sights, which they attribute to alcoholic delusions.

    Robin: Gosh, drink is sure a filthy thing, isn't it? I'd rather be dead than unable to trust my own eyes!

      Animأ© (if that is the correct term) never appealed to me as I find it cold and too "designer-like", as there's little if no margin for character or a personal touch. But this left aside, I will gladly praise you for your excellent work (within the style unloved by me). I am also pleased by the unusual way you fill out the entire page, which "window" on a supposed entirety you open. Bravo!

        Elysion_Gear, nice work! I really like the coloring of the eyes and look of melancholy on Elric's face.

        Say, would you mind us hosting the image here at the MWM Image Gallery as well? That way, visitors who miss this thread might see it there. We'll include a link to your site, of course. :)

        If you're interested, feel free to upload your pic here and I'll make sure it gets into the Reader Art section. It'll look good next to MWM member Faelauril's anime Elric & Stormbringer pic!

        I understand why you say that, L'E, as anime has been done to death lately and a lot of it is total crap, but let me assure you there are anime artists that have definitely nailed a personal style. I'm not huge into anime like my kids are, so I have no names to put forth, but with all the anime I am exposed to, I've seen some really good stuff.

          Nice. It may be Anime style, but the light touch and judicious colouring reminds me of some of the very moody covers of 1960's SF - including MM. I don't know what you'd call that - it's a kind of 'austere' approach that appeals to me more than some of the over-lurid contemporary stuff. D'janoworrimean? :roll: . I think this pic is very 'Elric' - captured the whole personality: menace and despair combined in one expression. Lovely.

            Very good. I'd say - I particularly like the colouring. :)

              Well, I greatly enjoy the "manga" style... at its worst it can be very generic and lacking in the soul department, but I don't think that's an accusation anyone could level at your work. I was very impressed... so please don't get any "better", or I may have to call for you to be banned. ;)

                ,,,

                Thank you very much for your kind words.
                It was painted with watercolors and acrilic paints on bristol bord.(Please excuse my spelling.)
                I was going to 'finish' the eyes by painting in white reflections. but I thought they would look better as deep red depths.

                I'm still not to happy with it. (I'm my own worst critic.)
                Stormbringer looks strange to me, and it's still not big enough. I like huge swords. :lol:

                I have two other fanarts in the works. (Corum, Elric w/Cymoril.)

                  Very cool stuff, Elysion. I spent a little while persusing the site. Nice work!

                      Hey, Yolanda! Aren't you going to submit something to Prototype 1? Prose, verse, or art?

                              ..

                              I was thinking of selling both paintings of Elric and Corum.

                              ...I don't know. What do you think? :| :?
