Gaul Bard - Coloring Book by iisjah Gaul Bard - Coloring Book by iisjah
=spiritto posted a journal lately with some great colouring book pages and seeing the new craze on the web I decided to give it a try too :la:

I didn't want to go with the standard Disney Princess theme so I got one of my favourite characters from comic books Cacofonix - the bard from Asterix comics :la:

I tried (and failed xD ) imitating Bouguereau style of painting (precisely this one [link]) - but it was a good practise :D

I used this colouring page sans Idefix (he was slapped there for no apparent reason anyways :B ) [link]

This idea came from Ryan Wood . Many artists followed so it's starting to be a bandwagon of sorts :D (this time an artistic one too xD )

I should have painted it raining though - so let's just say he does not have his 'rain string' on his lute ;D

Cacofonix (Assurancetourix) belongs to Albert Uderzo and Rene Goscinny

There should be some fish floating upside down on the surface of the water, and maybe birds falling out of the sky...

Zawsze lubiłam tego gościa. Mam taką teorię, od kiedy przeczytałam "Asteriksa i
Normanów", że Kakofoniks to satyra muzyków rockowych.

Anyway - naprawdę ładny fanart. Szczególnie fajnie wyszła ci ta zielona kolorystyka, szczególnie mech na pniu i trawa. Jak również sam Kakofoniks wygląda zarąbiście.

Omg, Cacofonix...I loved these comics when I was a kid, and the fact he always ended up tied in a tree never failed to amuse me. Really great job on the colouring!
