Memory by emlan Memory by emlan
Illustrated a Haiku by Tomas Tranströmmer for school.

"Dessa milstenar
som gett sig ut på vandring
hör skogsduvans röst"

Crummy translation:

"These milestones
who has gone traveling
hears the forrest pigeon's voice"

I'm not too fond over my colorchoices for this piece, but it's decent enough.

I'm shocked!
I don't think i've ever seen such a polished work from you!
Even though I don't understand it whatsoever, that doesn't deter it from being a very nice looking image

Great job man, and it was really cool to see the process of this coming together in your livejournal! 83

...Yup. This makes me want to draw more. I need to draw more.

And I love the colors--they suggest early morning, which is magnificent.

Don't tell me you are swedish... Because that would just be relly weird... Because Talent artsist tend to belong to other nations than sweden... Agaou... Yeah anyway.
Jag gillar Hakut (böjer man det så?) Och bilden kändes anorlunda jämfört med hur du brukar rita. Det fans mer alvar i de här bilden, trots de klara färgerna. Använde du samma medium som du brukar?

Jag gör alla mina bilder i Open Canvas men den här fick jag lov att måla på 300 dpi så jag ides inte köra med min vanliga färgläggning, gick mer efter hur jag jobbar på tegaki! Jag avskyr att jobba stort hahaha

This is such a different style then I normaly see with you, it's nifty and a welcome diversion. Your lines still have that lovely natural quality to them though. I have to say, I do like the color choice, the very reddish pallet contrasts with the sky quite nicely, it almost gets that vibrating effect.

Can I ask what your major is? ;u; (I didn't know you were in college)

I'm attentind a basic artschool...we get to try everything first year pretty much, now on the second year I'll try and get as much painting and textile-print time as possible.

Oh wow. Love how the finished version looks. Great to see some polished original art from you again. I really like the whole idea behind this and it's executed so nicely. Love the signs! And your signature at the little Wonderbaum too XD The whole concept and picture feels very Swedish too somehow... hm, it's great!
