Teir Abhaile Riu (pg.1) by Shotechi Teir Abhaile Riu (pg.1) by Shotechi
First page (you are here) | Next page

...which means something like "Go back home" and in a wider sense "Go back home, you've got stuff to do instead of wasting your time in the evening"

Inctroducing a little comic project inspired by two songs - Téir Abhaile Riú and Níl Se'n Lá by Celtic Woman. :dummy:
it's set around 1770, in a small village near Galway (which has no name). I'm still trying to figure out the details xD

As you can see, it features some of my characters, but it has nothing to do with an actual storyline (I mean, Will can walk around? xD)
I just love everything about Irish tradition and music, so... this happened. I hope it's at least a little correct with all the designs and backgrounds and so on...
I'm afraid it will be a very slow project, for I'm actually supposed to practise animation xD and it's just a little story, nothing long...
I hope you enjoy it nevertheless ^^

Art, Will (c) by me, no ref used
text is an extract from the "Nil Se'n La"- lyrics

I literally just came back to this picture again to gaze at it and see if there was any more, and I just realised - this is titled Téir Abhaile Riú but the lyrics in it are actually from Níl Se'n Lá ... You credited the right song at the bottom of your comments, so I just wondered if the title was a mix up or deliberate for some reason ^^

Shotechi Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hah, you're right! :D
I titled it "Teir Abhaile Riu" because it more or less follows the story of this song - which is the more important one for the comic, you'll see that later (:
 - but the lyrics of Nil Se'n La just fit too well to this beginning with Will and his fiddle ^^

Sarah, the colours! You're a god of coloured pencils, really. And the atmosphere of night! I've died.

I didn't know of anyone else who knew this group or these two songs!! They're some of my favourites by them. Oh my God - I am totally going to fall in love with this comic (already starting to :la:) I got so excited just when I saw the title, and to have your beautiful art on top of that...I can't wait to see more!

Okay, now I am excited xD you know them!
these two are by far my favourite of their songs ^^ I wish they'd be doing more songs in a similar style (of course the others are beautiful, too xD)

I'm so glad! :woohoo:

I know! :la:

I've listened to entire concerts on youtube, literally pressing repeat as soon as its over. These two do stick out for me, but they have so many that I love. The first of theirs I ever heard was 'The Call' and others that I like now are 'The Blessing', 'Isle of hope; Isle of tears', 'A spaceman came travelling', 'Green Grow the Rushes', 'Sing out' and 'Mo Guile Mear'. So many that I love so much! And some of their covers, as well as the original songs are beautiful, too.

Anyway; I'm keeping my eyes peeled for more of this. And I feel inspired to go listen to my CD again :D

Oh, I like the spaceman, too ^^ Thank you for the suggestions :D I'll see if I know them :giggle:
Some I like are "One World", "The Wealthy Widow", "Awakening" or their version of "Carol of the Bells" and "Last Rose of Summer - Walking in the Air" ^^
and I really like their instrumental songs like "The Foxhunter" and "The Butterfly" xD

No worries :) And wow - how did I miss Awakening? I adore that! And 'The Parting Glass' (how could I forget that??)

I will definitely look up some of those you mentioned, too! I haven't listened to their instrumental stuff so much, but it is beautiful :)

Ich mag vor allem diese Details wie du mit dem Licht spielst. Beim Fenster kommt es gelbgolden heraus und sonst ist es eher blau, beim Mond weiss...ich freu mich schon auf weitere Seiten :)

Ich war schon 3 mal da und will irgendwann mal dort ein Ferienhäuschen. Bevorzugt auf der Dingle Halbinsel, die ist noch nicht so überlaufen wie der Ring of Kerry. Aber mit den vielen Tanne auf dem Bild musste ich an die Wicklow Mountains denken und nicht sofort an Galway.

Bitte. ^^

Naja da ich ja bevorzugt eher schreibe als male hat sich langes suchen nach der exakten Landschaft irgendwie von selbst ergeben. Und ich bin ein Perfektionist sondergleichen was solche Dinge angeht. XD
Aber egal es ist einfach nur toll gemalt. ^^

Wenn ich mein gälisch Wörterbuch wiederfinde kann ich gerne auch aufschreiben wie man es ausspricht wenn du magst. Gälisch ist eine echt schwere Sprache weil du sie mit nichts vergleichen kannst. Man sieht zwar dass einige englische Wörter ganz klar vom gälischen Wort abgeleitet wurden aber es hilft dir nicht wirklich bein aussprechen weiter. Ich versuche ja noch immer die Sprache zu lernen aber es ist die Hölle. xD

Es gibt Lieder bei denen kann man auf etwa mitsingen wenn man die Lyrics einmal gelesen hat. Siúil a Rún ist zum Beispiel eines das man relativ schnell mitsingen kann wenn mans einmal gelesen hat. ^^

Wenn ich ihn finde schreib ichs hin. Ich hab ihn irgendwo.
