Joyful bard by PanHesekielShiroi Joyful bard by PanHesekielShiroi
So ... this year I was asked to submit an illustration to MMC's conbook as well and so I did. The theme was "Fahrendes Volk" (traveling folk), which has some kind of romantic ring to it. And here's what I came up with! :)
Also, I do know that he's actually carrying a lute guitar instead of a real lute which was invented in the late 19th century and thus doesn't quite fit the time I chose for the setting in general. However, carrying a real lute like that (with one hand) is pretty much impossible, so I went for a lute guitar in the end.
Anyway, does trivia like this bore you or would you like to hear more stories behind some of my paintings? :)

Her mit dem Hintergrund! So lernt man immer dazu, und wenn du dir schon die Mühe machen willst, die Info hinzuschreiben, werde ich garantiert nichts gegen sagen - ganz im Gegenteil sogar ^^

He certainly looks joyful!
I found your story behind the instrument choice interesting - it lends a new dimension to the piece by learning what inspired the artist in her choice!
