lir

wow. i havn't been in this gallery in literally years. it's amazing how quickly time passes and how much things change. all the same, i think it might be time to blow the dust off of this place and start over again. so if any of my friends from the old days are still out there... brace yourselves (lol) Lir is back, and deffinately different. if all of you have moved on permanently, well...i'm still updating ;) So. who am I?L. Holmes, better known around the internets as 'Lir'  i am an art student in the rural north-west of the North American continent. i'm a Christian, an artist, and a geek, hopefully in that order.I use a lot of different media, but i've been drawing (seriously)for something around 8 years now. i first started drawing so that i could actually 'see ' my characters somewhere besides my mind's eye, and i still draw pretty much for the same reason. most of what you see in my gallery is in some way related to the inter-connected network of stories and people that populate the inside of my head.i am also a bookbinder, something which i hope to pursue even more seriously as my education continues. hopefully several photos of my more 'fantasy' style books will also make it into this gallery, along with my drawings and forays into the world of digital painting.as a final note...i hope you like the stuff i post here. if you do-Awesome! but remember that the best i (or anybody)can do is just skills on loan from God. anything cool i can do is just a really-super-watered-down version of his creative power, vison,skill, and glory. he's the real source of everything good!if you don't like my work...my apologies, i don't blame you, and all my mistakes are copyright me XD.ROCK ON!!Hey! as of April 2014, i have a webcomic, which you can find HEREFYI:Lir likes: manga style, epic battles, making stuff, awesome music, being creative, cats, rain, storms, wind,webcomics etc..Lir could seriously do without: trolls, random swearing, baddly dubbed anime, spam(in all of it's devious forms), gratuitous gore, overplayed romance, yaoi (it's wrong, people) and cold toast. I like writing, reading, drawing, comic art, mastering GIMP, graphic design, prop design and constuction, and sword fights, to name a few... Favourite movies the Lord of the Rings (all of the extended cuts) the original Starwars trilogy, Jim Henson's 'Labryinth', FF: Advent Children, John Carter of Mars, samuria jack, TMNT 2003 series...the list could go on and on. Favourite books Lewis and Tolkien did fantasy first and best, though i'm also fond of some of their precursors, like Edmund Spencer. Favourite music Audiomachine, Mind.In.A.Box., eleventyseven, brand x music, anberlin, Skillet, many wonderful soundtracks, celtic folk songs...
