Vainamoinen by MartaNael Vainamoinen by MartaNael
Wainamoinen (Finland mithology based on Kalevala)

Pencil on paper

-------

EDIT: I wanted to change this file since ages.. It was looking to contrasted.. Maybe this one looks too dark but I feel it's better this way if you want to appreciate details in shading.

Yeah! Väinämöinen rocks :D ! Nice to see different view of Finnish mythology characters! I really like the shading especially around the forehead. This piece is very inspirational to me, I might have to start my own Kalevala series :D

I once told a tale about vainamoinen (he's a bard, right ?) ... that name is a nightmare to tell properly :P

Thanks for giving him a body in my mind.

Listen to Ensiferum's song about him [link] and of course Lai lai hei song [link] ... when you paint it. Will you?

Oh my! She's talented, she's beautiful and she likes good music. If you don't turn to a green skinned ogre after every sunset then your boyfriend should feel himself very lucky.
Pardon me, senorita! I am just an oldschool jester! And as an oldschool jester, I'm disciplined to give the proper reverence to fairness. :D

awww.. thanks!! :hug: that's really sweet of you! well I totally agree with the music thing! ;P I see we have in common Sonata and Kamelot! yaaaaaaay! They rule, but let's say all metal does, huh? :) Oh, and I listened to those two links you sent me. Nice folk metal music!! :headbang: xD

I'd say I'm an oldschool girl as well... but if it has the meaning I give to it I'd say there are few people left that still think as I do.. but well.. let's do a reverence to fairness! :worship: xD

As staff member in a rock and metal internet radio, I'd say any metal have the special spirit and force to fire up our soul. Though there are new ways I cannot go with (Slipknot and such). But hey, there are more we have in common: Within Temptation, Apocalyptica, Nightwish, Leaves Eyes ... how about Korpiklaani, Alestorm or Sirenia?

Too bad, the live radio stream (here is the www.rockozon.com) is hungarian and I not recommend you to start learning this language (maybe the hardest language to learn in the world), so you couldn't understand the speak. Though there are great songs especially between 5pm and 7pm (GMT+1) on live stream. (Anyway ... If you give it ... an advice ... turn the volume lower after you heard the Einherjermarsjen ... Don, my old friend simply can't understand that his mere "YARRRR!" cry goes through the electronic channels as well, so he always tries to carry the message acoustically to every radio listeners ... dunno why he start speaking short after it, temporal deafness mostly downgrade the value of his news.:D

ah, I see.. yeah!!! We have in common those bands too :nod: Unfortunately next gig i'll be attending is on March (too far away) and it is Kamelot+Leaves' eyes! Can't wait to see Kamelot again.. and Leaves' will be the first time! :D

I haven't listened a lot to Korpiklaani.. and Sirenia is quite ok but I don't like them that much (although the singer is from Barcelona as well).

haha.. well I do love languages, but it'd definitely be difficult to learn hungarian. So I'll take your advice! :)

March is really far away.
I think my calendar is as full as it can be. :D
Beside monthly rockozon.com parties (cool place, lots of friends, fine selection of local bands),
we'll get Stratovarius in January, Rammstein in March, Metallica in May (though I dont like them),
and also in May ... METALFEST(3 days of pure :headbang: - Sonata Arctica, Eluveitie, Korpiklaani, Finntroll ... etc).
But no Kamelot! :(

But hey! IMHO the old man on your cool drawing really likes me, but this comment-reply stream turned a bit far from him, so I'll send you a note with my email address and MSN contact as well! Feel free to attack me through those channels! :D
