Pheeeeew! I’ve had this one in the works for… gods know how long. I really wanted to go beyond what I thought I could do, and I must say that I feel like I did. Sketch -> finished -> a few detail shots. The original file is 8000 x 4800px and these are resized and resized until they almost fit to my screen nicely xD
The guys in the picture are Æskil and Hallí, both my OC’s.
The danger of returning to childhood games.
This is so true, it kinda hurts.
are goats even real animals?
Goats are the best.
I finished a drawing, wheee! This is an almost yet not even a close rendition of the Kha’jit lady I’ve been playing during my ESO betas. She grew on me more than any other parts of the game itself, so I had to draw her :)
The robes and the glowy stick are just something I pulled from my hat, since I’ve got no memory what the higher level light armors look like in game.
So, we’re having leather tanning at class at the moment, and this is how one of our classrooms looks today. don’t mind the mess, we do dirty work all the time so it’s no use trying to keep places nice and tidy. :D We’ve mostly worked on deer, goat and sheep hides, but there are a few smaller critters as well.
Valentine’s day in finnish is ystävänpäivä. It means something like: “friends day” or “a day for a friend”.
This means, that in Finland Valentine’s day is not a day to spend with a date, but with friends.
So, don’t be lonely and sad on Valentine’s day: Be a Finn for a day, call your friends and have fun with them and don’t worry about having a boyfriend/girlfriend.
Here are some progress pictures from my “Traditional woodworking” course project: a (shaman)drum. More info about the steps in the picture description when you pop them up! :)
This has by far been my favorite project, propably because I’ve wanted a drum like this for many, many years, if not since childhood. And Now I got to make one from scratch myself. I’m extremely pleased how it turned out, it has a sharp and good sound too~
(please excuse my bad terminology in the pictures descriptions, I’m not quite familiar with the right english terms yet.)
Some progress photos of my “modern woodworking” project, a sort of a viking style chest. The main aim of the classes was to learn how to use all the big and scary machines and tools of our workshop. I decided to make a simple but decorated chest to keep my medieval stuff in. I’ve never done anything bigger than a spoon or a cup from wood, so this was really interesting and challenging. :) More info about the pictures is found in their description when you zoom in on them.
O, Finland, behold, your day is dawning,
The threat of night has been banished away,
And the lark of morning in the brightness sings,
As though the very firmament would sing.
The powers of the night are vanquished by the morning light,
Your day is dawning, O land of birth.
O, rise, Finland, raise up high
Your head, wreathed with great memories.
O, rise, Finland, you showed to the world
That you drove away the slavery,
And that you did not bend under oppression,
Your day is dawning, O land of birth.
I’m going to cry.
