Staralfur by Annalee Staralfur by Annalee
Starálfur means "Staring Elf", it's a song by the wonderful Islandic band Sigur Rós. I made this piece as a homage to the outlandish and very unique beauty of their songs.
Those who know the band might possibly as well know that they have a fan artwork section at their official website. So I decided to send them the pic and hope that they'll like it.
Those who don't know Sigur Rós should immediately go and buy one of their records.

Usually I draw girls who look like boys, this time it's a boy that looks like a girl... is that information useful? No, but thanks for reading. Btw, just in case anybody wonders, he indeed has a cleft lip.

i love this pick- clean lines - excellent color - and the sharpness that you captured in the cleft lip is spot on - looks a little like my scar

I like this.. the cleft lip made me look harder, and I envy your ability to draw lips - the shading is really good, and the shape is perfect. Mine usually fail miserably!

Well done :)

i love love love sigur rós. their music is so beautifully ethereal.. and they make amazing videos as well :nod:
this is a really great drawing. it has a delicacy that matches the music well.. the closed eyes was a nice touch. the smooth tones seem to work well with the roughness of the lines.
great job :P

Silvie! That's a -heavenly- beautiful song!! Sigur Rós is a wonderful band, I'm so in love with their music..

I've just known them, but I want my dad to give me all their records by Chirstmas, I could spend my whole life(s) listening to them.

I'm listening 'Staralful', by the way.. when I saw this on my devWATCH list I was like 'omg! Sigur Rós!

This was such a nice coincidence, so.. Thank you.

nice ... ich find irgendwie das die augen strange aussehn ..aber inner positiven art .... weil es so wirkt als wenn se geöffnet wärn aber da doch irgendwie was fehlt (wenn man sich in der vollansicht wirklich nur auf die augen konzentriert) ... wenn du jetz verstehst was ich mein (was ich übrigens bezweifel :P) ... aber gefälltmir jedenfalls sehr gut :) und sigur rós sind extreeeeeeem gut :D

Peaceful picture. The boy is definitely enjoying the incredible music of Sigur Rós. Because of the red borders and the skicap, this has a kind of christmas feeling. A very good and original fanwork for one of the greatest band at the moment :) (new record coming soon btw!)

Super!
Ich höre die Ágćtis Byrjun gewöhnlich in der Badewanne. Perfekter Platz für diese Musik, finde ich. Vor allem wenn man untertaucht.
Leider kommentiere ich deine großartigen Zeichnungen viel zu selten, aber in letzter Zeit bin ich ein wenig unkreativ mit Worten.
Daher möchte ich dir neben der Wertschätzung dieses Werkes auch die Bewunderung für die vorigen ausdrücken. Wenn das Sinn ergibt, hehe.
Schönen Tag!

Na so ein Zufall, beim Baden hör ich sie auch am liebsten... der perfekte Soundtrack zum Ertrinken, könnte man meinen.

Danke für die Wertschätzung. :)
