sound horizon ~roman~

「其処にロマンは在るのかしら?」

ahhh it’s been a while since I’ve drawn Sound Horizon fanart. I also tried borrowing likenesses from the album art to depict most of the characters, but I also had my own spin with it too, haha. 

By the way, this is only half of an image. There is an accompanying side featuring Violette, but I am not finished drawing and coloring it yet.

To all you Laurants out there:

How many people would be interested in buying Sound Horizon pins? Like not official merchandise (I wish they sold pins!) but little bitty hard enamel pins.

They’d be about 25mm, or close to 1 inch. I’m working on getting a manufacturer’s quote, but I want to see if there’s a demand for them first. I sure know I’d like some Sound Horizon themed pins. But my question is, do YOU?

I have a few designs in mind. I’d post what I’ve got so far, but this is tumblr, a haven for content thieves. So I’m posting these Disney Princess matryoshka pins instead, to give you an idea of the size and look.

Comments? Questions about the designs? PM me! I wanna see if this goes anywhere!

Roman - Your Story Revolving around a Winter’s Morning and a Holy Night vol.1 illustrations

“I” watch the girls fade into the distance…between “morning” and “night”.

Good evening, my dear traveler of the horizons.
This is a story(roman) dedicated to you, who have awoken in a horizon that is neither morning nor night.
This is a story(roman) of the wounded, the beaten and the ones who suffered great loss.
This is a story(roman) of those who continue to wander with their eyes to the sky.
Ah, for we are born. And we will die.
Just like how the windmill turns. This is a story(roman) found there.
A special story(roman), the likes that could be found anywhere. Let’s bring a song to life.
Let’s continue our song. Just like him - one who would eventually be born on a holy night(Noël).

The Story of Morning and Night

You will awaken. In a horizon that is neither morning nor night.
You, the traveler of horizons who have gone forth and come back. Your journey starts here.
Perhaps it will be an endless journey. Perhaps there is no clearly defined destination. However, you will set off regardless. You will experience many meetings, and many goodbyes. You will know your name. You wish for it, and the girls answer. “Oui, monsieur.”

「おぉ友よ!罪無き囚人達よ、
 我らはこの世界という鎖から解き放たれた。
 来る者は拒まないが、去る者は決して許さない。
 黄昏の葬列・・・楽園パレードへようこそ!」

 Roman - Your Story Revolving around a Winter’s Morning and a Holy Night vol.2 illustrations

Good evening, my dear traveler of the horizons.

This is a story(roman) for a woman who had her love tainted, who lost love, but kept on fighting her entire life even as she stumbled. This is a story(roman) of a man who was known as ‘He who possessed the hands of God’ by later generations, a man who offered his entire life to something he believed in and expected nothing in return. This is the story(roman) of someone who closed his eyes for the last time with beautiful things etched deeply in his heart. If you ever lose your way, you should listen to the sage’s advice. But in the end, the choice is yours to make. If you are to depart, then at least leave a message. That in itself is also a story(roman). Everything is a special story(roman), the likes of which could be found anywhere.

Let’s bring a song to life. Let’s continue our song. Together with him - one who will be born on a holy night (Noël).
