Chrigel and Anna - HELVETIOS by CelticBotan Chrigel and Anna - HELVETIOS by CelticBotan
:star: EDIT: Just noticed I somehow deleted the freaking layer where I painted Chrigel's arm hairs /le feels so stupid/. So, edited it and painted them again.

"'Cause we're born free,
'Cause we're born wild,
'Cause we are indomitable and bold,
'Cause we are fire,
'Cause we are wave,
'Cause we are rock,
We are one - we are Helvetios!"

("HELVETIOS", Eluveitie)

s§s

AHEM. Yeah. lol
Guess I'm musically falling for this guys (MAYBE 400 scrobbles on my LAST.FM in less than a week is a very good evidence of it, lol).

These guys are Chrigel Glanzmann and Anna Murphy from Eluveitie - he's the founder/vocalist/ player of many instruments and she's the hurdy gurdist/second voice.

I know Eluveitie since 2009 or so, but I would only listen to "Inis Mona" and "Slania's Song", because their music is very based on grunts and it was not really my thing back then (it still doesn't, but nowadays I'm much more into them :XD:).

I don't know what's gonna be - if Eluveitie is going to change everything like Within Temptation or Florence did for me, if I'm going to become a fan, or if it's just a musical phase I have to go through due to the circunstances, but I'm certainly enjoying all of it so, so very much! :heart: Their music is certainly very captivating and they are one of the most insane and talented people ever! :XD:

About the drawing itself:
I wanted to make a stylized portrait of them, but using realistic colors. The result is not what I had in mind, but I really like it anyway! *-*


Enjoy! :wave:

This was drawn so well. When I first saw it, I thought it was an actual photograph. Fantastic!

I love them too (even if I don't know them very well, now that I'm thinking of it...), and your drawing is awesome!!!
(Make me feel like listening to them... oh, how many times shall I say this?? xD)

Their music is very... curious. FOr me, at least. I'd not listen to them a couple of months ago, but all of a sudden Chrigel's grunts don't really bother anymore (unless we are talking about songs like THE SIEGE, where even Anna is making grunts #LeFear)

(and LOLOL, it's nice to see my artwork makes you wan to listen to stuff 8DDD - witchcraft? :iconfrolloplz:)

Oh I love Eluveitie, I bought their new album a few days ago, now I hear it all day long *.*
And same here, I always listened to "Inis Mona" and "Slania's Song" and know became tolerant to grunts xD But I just love their music, the hurdy gurdy and the violine, the atmosphere, the stories they tell... wonderful ^^ I just wonder, why you mention Ireland? The helvetii were a celtic tribe, settled at the territory from modern Switzerland.
Hm, I think I wandered from the subject xD
So... the drawing is just wonderful! I love the way you painted Annas hair, and jou did a great job with the hands :) I can't draw hands. You made them look so realistic (: Beautiful!

Yes, it's exactly the folk parts that got me as well! They are SO talented, Meri's skills on violin are insane! D=

And oh, I mentioned Ireland because, as I said, I have this strange connection with celtic music, and I also have this thing with Ireland, I'd love to visit the place someday! :heart: But I know that celtic tribes were all over North Europe back then.

And thanks a lot! I love to draw stylized stuff, but coloring it realistic-ly, it gives a very nice touch and people are quite surprised to see a drawing when they were expecting a picture / a more realistic painting for what they saw in their dA inboxes =D

You're very welcome ^^ Keep on practicing, you are very talented.

I love Ireland too... it's very expensive, unfortunatelly, but I will go ther one day! Ireland is interesting because the celtic influence is stronger than in other countries, because it wasn't included in the roman empire like the rest of europe... hm, I think I should write my study dissertation about it :D

Lindos <3 O casaco da Anna é fantástico! Também não os oiço mais por causa do excessivo uso do gutural, gostava que eles dessem mais espaço à Anna, ela tem uma voz muito bonita e versátil!

Muito obrigada! :heart:
E sim, a Anna é sensacional, mocinha super talentosa. É estranho ver que ela é alguns meses mais velha do que eu e é super tr00 / toca numa banda de metal desde, sei lá, os 16 anos 8DDD
