Treefox's non-EQ stuff
« on: July 25, 2010, 08:16:38 AM »

As I haven't really done anything EQ related lately (meaning basically the last 2 years), I figured I could at least post some of the super-kitsch that I painted for various occasions. This one I must admit I'm rather proud of. This was done for the wedding of a good friend. She loves The Last Unicorn and so I decided to give her a unicorn related drawing for her wedding. Not that difficult, because I absolutely love that movie as well.

This was actually drawn directly into her wedding card. That paper was horrible to draw on! Still, I'm quite proud of how it came out in the end. But, oh, the kitsch... ah well.

Get out! I just watched The Last Unicorn last night 'cause I found a super-cheap copy of the 25th anniversary dvd at a local store. Brought back lots of memories. I love how you captured the Rankin-Bass stylized backgrounds, with their almost pointillist-tapestry look. Last Unicorn/EQ would make for a great crossover.

Wow! Thanks! And also I'm really surprised that you know the movie! Usually I find that it is hardly known outside of Germany. It was a big hit here, so everyone knows (and often loves) the movie. It is the first movie I recall seeing and I loved it soooo much, still do! I must admit though, this one of the really, really rare cases that I like the German dub better than the original version. Christopher Lee did the voice of Haggard in English and German! He rules!
Have you notices that the pointillist-tapestry look is only used in the unicorn forest? Ah, that film's animation is sadly not top notch, but there are so many small, wonderful things you can notice. I just love how lyric it is and that it has such a bitter-sweet ending. *sighs* Could go on forever about this movie!

Same here! I was surprised how ... awkward I found the English dub. Well expect from Christopher Lee of course .. yeah he DOSE rock. That voice.. *sigh* I still want to struggle the idiot who said he has to make a casting for his own voice in the German LOTR dub <_< We didn't get him for Saruman  :'(

However. This picture made my heart flutter :D I love this all in blue tone. and the Unicorns .. your style fit them very good!!! :)

All in all .. just love it!

Thank you, Windschatten! It would have been so wonderful, if Christopher Lee would have done Saruman in German as well! But maybe he just to busy nowadays.

In fact he wanted but found it insulting and ridiculous to go for a cast for his own voice. It seemed the guy who was responsible for the voice cast didn't know he talks German ^^'

Squeeeeee!!  So much love for this!  It absolutely glows!!  And sure, this movie was uber popular in America, at least when I was little.  (When I was four I was head over heels for the butterfly, who in English sings part of "Has anybody here seen Kelly, K-E-double L-Y..." ...which is my name, so I felt special).

Also I heard a rumor they were gonna making a live-action version of Last Unicorn, and I think using some of the (English) voice actors as live actors... only in older parts.  Like, Mia Farrow as Molly Grue, etc (but still Christopher Lee as Haggard!).  I even saw an official webpage for it once, but that was something like 4 years ago.  Maybe they abandoned the idea.  Cry.

But your picture is absolutely stunnning, and I can't believe you did that on the inside of a card!  Beautiful!

Haha, cool! Thank you! It's actually quite nice to hear what other people think about this movie.

Aww, I would have felt special, tool. How cute! I really liked that butterfly as a kid, but nowadays I'm slightly ambiguous about it, because I'm not sure how the humor and the anachronism really fit in with the rest of the movie. But on the other hand it's part of what makes it so special. So I guess I like it. :D

Concerning the live-action movie, I was following that excitedly. But they sadly scrapped the project a couple of years ago...

Neither can I, believe me... It was hell! I was cursing like a sailor all the time. That paper was cruel, I tell you, cruel! Actually I tried to erase the bend in the middle that is still visible in the original scan. I even colored the envelope of the card. That paper was much nicer on my nerves:



Of course I added the names of the couple in the end.

I really love your use of color! It's so sweet and intimate and just makes you feel nice when you look at it. Very peaceful and serene <3

Oh yes, this was one of the three pictures I drew last year. Again for my good Last-Unicorn-loving friend. Again this was drawn directly on a post card. This card was actually meant for water colors.



My scanner was broken at that time, so I could only take a photo...

So, I now have the chance to show my latest mermaid here. This will again be published in an erotic novel, this time the story will have a rather strong comedic tendency. I haven't read it myself yet (because it's not finished), but I loved the chance to draw a mermaid as I have always loved to draw them. Acutally, my first design was intirely different and sadly didn't fit the story at all. I still want to finish my first idea and maybe show it here, too.

Oooh, thank you guys! Well, I used to draw mermaids a lot! I mean my first self-made elf tribe was mermaids and mermen. It's cool because you don't have to draw legs. Hihi!

I make and sell a lot of mermaid art, and eventually started a mermaid artist site called mermaidartists.com if you are still creating mermaids often, if you ever happen to want pop by and share your mermaid pieces!

That site has some gorgeous art! Thanks for the link! But sadly the mermaids I have are all too old to really show them to the public. For more current art I only have this one and the old/new contest EQ mermaid...
Hm, somehow I have missed your mermaids... *goes to check*
