suitcase hearts by merrinou suitcase hearts by merrinou
I've been rewatching the first seasons with all the adorable fluff and sobbing into my bedsheets because everything was so happy and silly back then. How did it turn into this monster of sadness that is season 5? So I drew baby!merthur, when Merlin was still this precious baby with his fluffy hair and his adorable goofy smile, and Arthur was the prat crown Prince of Camelot. : D

hi i never really commented on this ;w;
But anyway this doesn't change the fact that i really love this drawing a lot, it looks really awesome with the green natural bg :heart: (how do you bg)
Also i totally admire you for drawing this in this birdsview angle ;; (how do english) (how do you birdsviewangle)
I've started season one again as i mentioned, everything was really adorable back then (well idk how it turn out but i saw the finale it was a huge contrast lol)

Boohoo I'm very happy you like it ajhzkldn, look I drew flowers! :'D I've definitely seen you make super cute backgrounds so you don't get to how do you bg me, I don't know what I'm doing I guess I do it the way I would if I were using acrylics or something?? AH YES CLEARLY I STILL NEED PESPECTIVE PRACTISE BECAUSE THEY DON'T LOOK THAT GOOD but I guess I tried sobs thank youu ;w; Pfff I don't know how this angle is called but birdsview angle is such a cute name, I'll totally call it that now. :heart:
It pretty much ended up like the finale, well this one is by far the worst of season 5 in term of cries but yeah, that's what the show became? It also became very good, no more trolls farting for an entire episode haha. Ah yes so you're done with gayass, I hope you'll keep watching, and not just for me but also because I hope you enjoy it. and because merlin's ears
Thank you so much Miri that was a really sweet comment :hug: I'll definitely make more I still have to draw Arthur to go with Merlin with the birds maybe I'll find time this weekend :')

Yesss I'm so happy you posted this hereee <33333
BACK WHEN EVERYTHING WAS HAPPY AND CUTE ;___; AHHHH PRINCE Arthur that felt like so long ago but I remember when that's all we knew. You can really feel the lighthearted adorableness of the first seasons through just by looking at this <33 Merlin is always so happy around Arthur I just AHH ;u;
Your use of colour here is absolutely amazing! ;u; I LOVE the way the grass looks, and the way their shadows hit the blades of grass it looks so real and sooo well done! <33 And I love the way you shaded their clothes too! There are so many details like the stitching on Merlin's bag and on Arthur's clothes and Merlin's jacket! It looks wonderful :love: And akhdskjhgsdkj the way both their shirts fade into a yellow colour like the sunlight is hitting them looks so WONDERFULllll wahhh

So yes this looks amazzinggg ;u; :love: I love your artwork it always makes me so excited and happy to look at sdgjksdhgksdg

AJAKZLN FLAILS you are so kind, and that's so sweet of you that you took the time to comment on here too <3
KING ARTHUR WAS PERFECT (I DONT KNOW WHY I SAY WAS ARTHUR IS NOT DEAD ARTHUR WILL RISE AGAIN akzjd) BUT sometimes I miss Prince Arthur when he was still this arrogant baby trying to get his father's approval and picking on Merlin all the damn time. Pfff Merlin was ridiculously happy all the time in the first seasons that makes me so sad BB WHAT HAS LIFE DONE TO YOU I AM MAD AT LIFE ;A;
Thank you tons again ajkdkleznd :hug: I'm really glad you like the colors, and the GRASS wah my process for painting grass is so stupid and long and if it fails I'm like can I kill myself yet. I do it all by hand I should really look for good grass PS brushes or something omg. ;u; It always makes me really happy when someone notices little details like stitching marks, I was actually done about a week before I posted it, then I spent the rest of the time editing tiny things and adding 653026510 randoms details like the flower in merlin's tunic and the staff and blah. :')

sobs sobs sobs thank you so much, your adorable comments always make me grin like an idiot and I'm very glad you like my artwork and I totally adore yours ajkledzdjde :love:

Ah, absolutely lovely, yet again :D First of all - awesome job on the perspective, it's brilliant and gives a fantastic effect! :love: I just love everything - the sunny, summer feeling of holidays and carelessness, the smooth hills and trees and the light, everything about it is dynamic and yet unhurried - an absolutely beautiful feeling :) And it's the feeling of the early seasons of Merlin, you captured it wonderfully. I occasionally rewatch those two, and then sob for approximately 20 mins :XD: Anyway - I really love this pic, the flower-speckled meadow is gorgeously done (lovely job on grass - not detailed and yet very... grass-y =p), and the way the misty light sifts through air is also very summer-y. Lovely, lovely job :D

And again, you are beyond lovely, thank you so much! :hug: Honestly, I can't draw unreferenced perspective to save my life, it always looks wrong, I used references from posemaniacs, I don't know if you know this site but it's really good for difficult poses. :) The next bit of your comment made me ridiculously happy because I really wanted something carefree and summer-y and I'm so glad you see all that in it <3 I'm also really glad to hear the background is somehow ok because I really lack experience in digital backgrounds, basically I have no idea what I'm doing half the time. I'm thrilled the grass looks grass-y :'p I tend to paint grass blade by blade because I can't think of another way this is really stupid haha
I feel like thanking you endlessly for taking the time to write such elaborate and sweet comments, long comments always make me happy and yours make me smile like a huge dork. : D Thank you tons :heart:

N'aww, you're welcome :) I really like your work, you use such pleasant colours and come up with great themes... Oooh, I don't know that site, I'm using shutterstock, but now I'm sure to investigate it! I love pose reference photos sometimes :D Though surpsisingly enough, I'm good with drawing difficult poses out of my head - for some reason it's the simplest ones I need reference for. Weird. :shrug: Oh, I love your backgrounds! They look so nice :) Awww, that's very sweet of you, you're welcome :) I enjoy leaving a thorough comment for pics I like - seems only fair since the author worked hard on it :)

Yeah, I know the first season was really great, but honestly I really liked season 5 too, because they really kind of followed the original story... I;m just sad it's over... :) Love the picture, Merlin is just too cute!! :D

Thank you tons! :heart: Ah yesyes of course I really adore season 5, it was definitely awesome and intense in term of plot and character developmenent. :) It also made me bawl and wheep in extreme frustration every single week, and I totally loved it because clearly I'm masochistic. I just suppose the first seasons, not matter how flawed and silly, had a really special charm of their own. Still my favorite series is series 4, but I think I somehow love them all haha. This show left a gaping warlock-shaped hole in my heart when it ended and it just won't close off. ;_____;

Yeah, I know what you mean, I really hope they will make these kind of shows in the future as well :D I couldn't watch it every week, so wee waited until every season was complete to watch it and we finished one season in 2 days....but then we had to wait for the next one a lot!
