Talks with Tolkien artists: evankart

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 30, 2014, 8:00 AM


:iconevankart: - evankart is a talented korean artists whom I had the pleasure to interview for the latest issue of "Talks with Tolkien artists". After feasting your eyes on her pictures here you can read her answers about Tolkien and art, and if you want more, go check her gallery!

Aragorn by evankart
Thorin and Thranduil by evankart
Thorin Oakenshield with wind by evankart The Hobbit comics: Snow day - part (1) by evankart
Legolas with his bow by evankart Curufin- son of Feanor by evankart


1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?


Hello, call me 'evan'. I'm from S. Korea, a professional comicbook artist and also art teacher. English is not my first language but I will try to answer the questions in earnest :) (Smile)

2. When did you read Tolkien's books for the first time, and what impression did they leave in you?

It was the greatest story I've ever read. I didn't like the genre of Fantasy novel and still don't like it except Tolkien's works. But when I met Middle-earth for the first time I loved the questions about moral law and choices of fascinating characters. Also, Tolkien was a great visual artist. He described the his world very well, every scene could be imagined easily.

3. How extensive is your knowledge of Middle-earth? Do you consider yourself Tolkien expert?


No I don't. I just have read 'LOTR', 'the Silmarilion', 'the Hobbit' and 'Children of Hurin'. Other books haven't been translated into Korean yet. Also sometimes I am confused about the time-line of the stories or character's name, and the names of places.  

4. Now, could you tell us something about you and art? Are you a professional artist, or is art just your hobby? When did you start doing it, and who or what influenced your style?


I'm a professional artist :) (Smile) I was 13 when I went to my first artclass. My drawing style was influenced by my mother and sister. They are also professional visual artists and a calligrapher. I majored western art in university but their oriental art style and tools always gives me some inspiration.

5. Alright, I will ask it directly: how is it possible that the characters in your drawings look so real, and yet 150% more hot than in reality? :) (Smile)

Ah really? I didn't intend to draw them more hotter than reality. Maybe it because I picked some pictures which they look very hot :) (Smile)

6. How do you choose which scenes and characters to illustrate?


There are some points what I would draw. Like a beautiful scenery of Mirkwood, Thorin's hair, Thranduil's face...It depends on inspiration I get day by day.

7. What art technique is your favourite? Do you rather keep to the art techniques and styles you are familiar with, or do you experiment with new ones as well?

I prefer to draw with traditional tools like paper, pencil, ink, brushes, watercolor. But I'm trying to be familiar with CG drawing recently.

8. Could you give us a link or thumbnail from your gallery of
- a Tolkien illustration you are most proud of?

the Company of Thorin Oakenshield by evankart
- a picture from other fandom or original picture you are most proud of?
winter soldier by evankart
- a picture that fits your current mood?
Who the hell is Bucky? by evankart
- a picture that was hardest to paint?
Thranduil for mirkwood event by evankart
- any other picture you would like to share with us and why?

evankart.tumblr.com/post/98237…

Recently I'm trying to draw a story of a drifter who is walking across middle earth. I will keep drawing this until end of the journey.

11. Is there some artist(s) at dA you know, who doesn't have as much attention as they would deserve? If yes, could you give us some thumbnails from their gallery?

:iconharmonia3784:
Thranduil and young Legolas by harmonia3784

12. Is there something else you would like to tell to the fans of Tolkien and your art?

Always thank you for watching my drawings! I'm looking forward to see the third hobbit movie and will love Tolkien's world for a long time. I hope you guys will be there with me :) (Smile)


-----------------------------------------------Thanks!! Have a good day!!

Thank you as well for your time and answers!

NaNoWriMo + my fanfiction

The Heart of the Mountain - synopsisA man knelt on the blood-soaked battlefield. He was the last one. The last of the Ar-Venui, the Swords of Death: Nothing to live for, just looking for something to die for. A sword was hanging above his head. The last rays of the dying sun were like a road to the oblivion…
And the sword did not fall.
---
I am your only faithful one:
the lover of your pains
And when fate rides a chariot
them I'm holding the reins
Listen!
A song beats in your veins

---
Once, long ago, Ar-Tenil had a wife, and a son that had to be born soon. Then the Lowlanders came to conquer the Mountains and discover the place of a great power from an old legend – The Heart of the Mountain. He never heard of that place. The chaos of fight, one moment, one decision. He saved many lives that day – but for them, his wife died. Now he is looking for the sons of the women he saved, to take them as a repayment of their debt, and train them as the new Ar-Venui. But a surprise awaits him - not all of them


My stories from Middle-earthI usually do not post my fanfiction stories here at dA (and won't until they enable to post multi-chaptered stories as one deviation, otherwise it would make a mess in my gallery...) I post them under my fanfiction.net: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1740140/Mirach and Stories of Arda account: http://www.storiesofarda.com/author.asp?AuthID=2706
Now I got the idea to post at least the links to them here, together with the banners and illustrations. My stories feature mostly Aragorn, and several also Eärendil, but there are a few with other characters as well. I will update this journal when I post a new story.

Art for Trees & Treasure hunt!

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

:? sifro. - solve the codes and win points! IMPORTANT: the login into the submmitting system currently doen't work. I'll try to fix it somehow, but until then, the "Try it without login" link still works. If you submit the solution to a cipher, it will give you a link to the next one. It just won't remember your position in the game, so better save that link, or remember the solution so you can get it again.
:new: July/7/2014 - After a year and half, we finally have a next winner! It's Dimensionwalker21, winning 360 points. Congratulations!
Dec/24/2012 - We have a next winner! It's WintersRead, winning 306 points!
Nov/11/2012 - The second winner is nuvak! He generously refused the point reward, so there is still a lot of points in the pool for the next winner!
Oct/12/2012 - We have the first winner! It's ninquetari, who wins 475 points!
The easy day was yesterday! Today, the game begins! And It's just in time for dA's birthday! :D
