In part of my ongoing quest to become the Ultimate Nerd(tm), worked some more on Tengwar, in the English mode for now. Transliterated both my handle (laserswords) and the name of a character from the popular comic Dresden Codak.
Mr. Diaz mentioned in a comic that Kimiko Ross only signed her name in Tengwar as a kid, so I figured I’d try to work it out on my own before checking how he did it. Little off, but pretty close, I figure. Dumb vowels.
So I misheard an assignment in art class that I thought said we were supposed to recreate some art from artists we like. However I was halfway done when I realized we were not supposed to do this at all, but I has halfway done already and decided screw it I’m just going to finish anyway.
It’s Aaron Diaz’s Lantern Season from his comic Dresden Codak, which I adore, and so I recreated some panels of that with colored pencil. Pretty fun! Learned a bunch of things, number one of which is: colored pencils are frikken expensive
