Lemminpoika by Ilweran Lemminpoika by Ilweran
I guess that, whether you're familiar with Kalevala or not, this requires some explanations :XD:

This is my personal depiction of the abduction of Kyllikki by Lemminkäinen, one of the episodes of the finnish epic poem Kalevala :meow: I wanted to draw a little picture for my friend ~Lemminkajnen, and because of the importance that the son of Lempi has for him, I decided to draw my first -however silly- Kalevala fanart :XD::heart:

I always imagined Lemminkainen with black hair, and after checking I realized I wasn't wrong, his black beard is mentioned...YES I KNOW THERE'S NO BEARD HERE but...he was young!:XD: (and that's not a lie...although that doesn't change the fact that he already had his beard. Oh well)

Sorry but I absolutely don't remember where I picked the texture...if you recognize it, let me know uwu/

Silly is good (and it suits the mood of the Kalevala most of the time). This is great

Grazie mille!!!!!*v*:heart::heart: mi ha dato molta soddisfazione fare di loro simili ritratti!:rofl:
E' bello il Kalevala!! (così come in effetti lo sono tutte le opere di mitologia a mio parere :XD:) e Lemminkainen è un meraviglioso donnaiolo :giggle:

Vè?8-) Io avevo preso il libro in biblioteca, anche se come edizione non è che fosse esaltante...però almeno era in prosa, ma se non sbaglio si trova su internet in versi ( qui [link] )

Hahahaha è un amore Cocchina, è ben fatto anche se paciocco, è accurato nella colorazione e nei dettagli e nella "posa" e quelle espressioni sono semplicemente geniali!*_* Anche lo sfondo ci sta bene sia come texture che come colore è semplicemente perfetto per l'atmosfera! al solito la tua abilità nel mescolare tonalità di colori alla perfezione si riconferma!*_* :heart:

Grazie mille, fare i loro faccini diametralmente opposti in espressione è stata la parte più divertente :rofl: mentre il vestito da babbo natale\calzolaio mi ha dato i suoi problemi 8-) sono felice ti sia piaciuto *3*

I like it very much, too :) I wonder if he wanted her back when his story arc ended after the Battle of Pohjola, his unpleasant experience in Tuonela surely had left mark on his way of thinking
