I was aiming for 'sneer', but am happy with 'smirk'.

Oh look, here's trouble:



I am cheating outrageously by keeping him in neutral pose, but I really enjoy the cloak-swoosh.

And

we have

a new video!

Galadriel's Lament: Remastered

With shiny new digital effects and also probably everything stays the right size (probably)! Yeah, it gave me a few problems along the way...

Have not made a new credits page yet, so that's not in there. But everything else is!

Do you just have a lot of time on your hands these days or something?

...I love it. It was a very apt choice of effects. There were a few places where I mentally went "ooooooh". But my favourite has got to be the fading in and out of colour that you did for the portraits. They look excellent in both colour and greyscale, but the transition is something slightly surreal.

EDIT: here is the Oath touched up, and the second stanza repeated with slight differences. I think the second stanza is a bit more defiant than the first, so maybe that point is getting better as well. Thanks for the mood description - it actually helped a lot to look at specific words for direction. Any other direction tips for further improvement, before I move on to the middle part? ;-)

I just get easily distracted while working at home. Shhh, don't tell anyone. (Though most of the drawing was done at lunchtime, fear not.)

I was going to just talk about how singable it is, buuuuut I was sitting in front of the microphone, so: Oath, take 1

(I have made no attempt to separate the voices, or even to be particularly Feanorionish; this is just me in normal singing mode.)
