Daoine Sidhe by Werdandi Daoine Sidhe by Werdandi
Daoine Sidhe is some kind of elvish company from english folk tales. They always wear black and travel with crows...

Daoine Sidhe would actually be Irish for "fairy people" or the Tuatha De Danaan. :) I like your artwork.

Not the Tuatha themselves, actually. Descendants, in some myths.

Daoine Sidhe is Irish not english....
Daoine means people and sidhe means fariy or fae so Fairy People

Terrific work. I agree about the "Irish, actually" comment, but sidhe do all sorts of fun things and can travel with whom they bloody well please. ;)

What media do you mean when you categorize this as "painting"? It looks like pen and ink with wash to me. The lines are exquisite.

Werdandi Featured By Owner May 5, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
actually it should be "ink lineart coloured with watercolors and markers";some of lines are made with thin brush,some with pen, some with alcohol based letraset markers

Yes, the Sidhe are Irish, not English by any means. If you enjoy reading about them in a relatively contemporary Irish experience, I highly recommend Lady Gregory's book Visions and Beliefs in the West of Ireland. She published it in 1920, and it's a collection of transcribed stories the local (Galway) people told her of the supernatural, which often included the Sidhe.
Beautiful work, btb, I enjoy your gallery!

Od dawna jestem zafascynowana Daoine Sidhe, mają specyficzny urok i nie są tak doskonałe jak elfy z książek i filmów. Przy okazji - Jonathan Strange i Mr Norrell. Ta książka najlepiej oddaje naturę elfów.

Co do samego rysunku, doskonale uchwycona właśnie natura irlandzkich elfów. Te kruki...

Irish, actually. And they don't always wear black; green and blue and white and brown are popular too, the colours of the earth and sea and sky. And they don't travel with crows, they live underground. "Daoine Sidhe" means "People of the Mounds".

That aside, it's an awesome picture. Splendid. Well done.

That's lovely, it's sketchyness makes it seem so alive. And the blue eyes are a nice contrast to the darker colours of the rest.

Na wyspach brytyjskich paru Celtow zawsze by sie znalazlo... co do tego czy Daoine Sidhe sa z Irlandii, to byc moze masz racje ^^; ja przeczytalam o nich pierwszy raz w ksiazce o angielskich magach i Krolu Krukow.... :confused:
