Lost for words…
Today we received ill tidings from Sweden, David’s grandfather finally lost his valiant battle against multiple myeloma. This little die-hard original söderkis was one of the sweetest men I know. He left such a profound impact on our lives, our youngest son even bares his name and our grief cannot be put into words.
We would like to thank all our friends and fans for their kind words and support. Those words can make a difference when one is struggling on..
“In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
So no elaborate post this weeks, and we do beg forgiveness if the posts the coming weeks are a tad demure. Do feel free to get inspired and join our Ars Scribendi competition here on the blog or on Facebook.
No real finished images will be posted this week. But as to not let our loyal followers be hungry, we decided to give you some idea on progress and skill-development. The first image here illustrates David’s well known “Sanguinius holding the gates” illlustration. This took almost 50 hours to complete, the Spacewolf took significant less time. It shows that even when one has developed a style of one’s own, evolution is still key.
And finally, a more detailed sketch of a piece currently in the pipeline.
