Might be a prompt for future music of mine, I don't know. I wanted to do something that would capture the whimsical nature of some of my better works, and then this came about.

Sharpies on A4 card. A few filters added later for taste.

Which technique did you use for the creation of the drawing. And also, what inspired you to make this?

Troisnyx responds:

Just started by putting down some pencil lines, erasing them, drawing on them with markers, then colouring it in. If I needed to blend it properly, I'd basically saturate the paper with the colour until I saw a visible blending. Then when it was done (and since I have no scanner on me), I took a photo of it on my phone, passed it through a PowerPoint filter or two, and done.

I don't really know what it was that made me wanna do this. If I hazard a guess, I'd say that my early sung work (the stuff that got played on the BBC) was quite childlike, whimsical, positive. I wanted to draw something like that, and I don't quite know how, but this came to me as a result.

The fact that this was done with markers is amazing. It looks like it should be in a fairytale book!

Ooh, very nice.

I like this one quite a bit. The ocean scenery is my favorite part, but everything is well-drawn. I get nervous whenever I try to do anything with markers since there's no undo button. Also, I'd love to hear any music inspired by this.

Nice work :-)
