Drunken Lament by vert-is-ninja Drunken Lament by vert-is-ninja
A sloppy quickie where I experimented with lighting more than I usually do because for once someone is not floating in white space hahahahahahahahahaha. Oh my sides hurt.

If you haven't noticed, I love Ludo and I have a massive unhealthy crush on the main guy, Andrew Volpe. I mean, seriously who can't? He is SO MY TYPE. Everybody knows what my type is by now I think.

Type = geeky, adorkable boy in glasses with an overactive imagination and usually kind of grumpy but hyperactive is good too.

When do I get my adorkable boy huh? HUH!

Oh right. This is supposed to be the spot where I describe the PICTURE. ...

It's Lamar getting drunk.

AHAHAHAHAHA <3 Tessa, marry me?

Those artist comments alone made me laugh so hard I fell out of my chair.

Ahhhh more ludo. WIN! This is probably my third favourite song - under Lake pontchartrain and Air-Conditioned love.

Why are you so great at faces? And poses. Even simple ones are no problem! XD

Oh I do love them red heads. I'm with you on the adorkable guys, they're so cute.

Weird coincidence? I clicked on this just as my Ludo playlist started playing this song. [/Lake Pontchartrain background music]
mortmortmorty Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2010
HEY i have a huge crush on Andrew Volpe too! :) wooo common ground lol

this is nicely done, your tones (especially the shadows) are great!
Morbidy Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2010
I had just about kicked this song (and the opening lyric especially) out of my head, then I stumbled across this. xD I felt you needed to know.

I really like how you shade things. A bunch. *stares intently at everything* Yes, I believe 'studying her shading style' will be a good excuse for 'looking at more Conrad art and ignoring things I should be doing.' =D

I wish I had an adorkable boy. :(
[That's my favorite word. Ever.]

I love the lighting in this picture, and his expression.
It made me make an odd sound somewhere between a squeak and a giggle.
And then I fell on the floor and found a few bucks under the desk.
I was lookin' for them.
So... Thanks, I guess.

Somehow I have to figure out how to fit him in my pocket...

This is my freaking desktop pic, I LOOOVE it, and your slickly-sweet style. Plus, I can't help but relate.
the-Mad-Hatress Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2008  Student General Artist
Adorkable boys are far too hard to find. Pout.
You did well with the lighting.
Your artz be far too amazing.
Kel-C-Lynn Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2008  Professional General Artist
I know exactly how you feel.

I have this semi-unrealistic dream of creating some awesome picture of Andrew rocking out and then giving it to him if I ever get the pleasure of meeting him on warped tour, with the hopes that it will somehow make him remember me.

For some reason it upsets me that he's dating someone now...I'm following his myspace like a stalker. Geez I'm lame. XP
CaptainSpaz Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2008  Professional Filmographer
Ludo. LUDOOOOOO. I can't really think of anything to say other than that. The mere mention of Volpe makes my brain stall.
Your artwork is very much awesome and I'm glad that an innocent search for Andrew brought this fact to my attention!
Your boy is very pretty, by the way.
spiker17 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2008

I adore Ludo with every fiber of my whole being. And like, Andrew could not be more perfect. I would give everything I have just to hang out with him and the band for a day.

And *kaotickell down there, who linked me to this, was turned on to them by me, ROFL, and she seriously is like, equally in love with them. We ven divvied them up between us. :B

Great piece, great piece!
PyroPanda Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008
good job on the background! I like the lighting/atmosphere
kaotickell Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
hahaha This is awesome! Have you sent it to the boys?
vert-is-ninja Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2008
Oh, to Ludo themselves? Nawwwwwww, I'm too embarrassed. I'd have to draw them something *real*. But it's tempting to do that, too. :3
kaotickell Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Go onnn! And when you do, send me a link. :aww:
Zikka Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
THIS IS AWESOME!!! Do more LUDO fanart plz, this site needs more LUDO :love:
mishi Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The lighting looks fantastic.
JoJollyArt Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
I am also utterly obsessed with Ludo. Bah!

Their music has such a dark and alluring quality to it. "Horror of Our Love" is probably one of the most vicious and honest representations of obsession, in my opinion. The fact that their lead man is a totally relatable and, as you said, "adorkable" human is a total bonus.

To the point of the post! Love the image, but I always love your work. ;) The amount of character you infuse into your illustrations is astounding and you style has always popped off the page and into the viewer's psyche. Keep it up.

Lovely mood, it works nicely :D
VoodooRew Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
I just recently discovered Ludo. Good stuff. Lake Pontchartrain is awesome. And Lamar's expression is so funny! He looks like he's about to violate that glass.
seira-chan33 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
The lighting IS nice. It's a really fun thing to play with. This gives it such a nice glow...

And that face is win. XD
milkstache Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
Your "artist's comments" SLAY MEEEE.
Is Lamar a good drinking buddy, you think?
vert-is-ninja Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Probably! ;D
McJamie Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
God, I am SO GLAD you're listening to Ludo. Make them famous famous famous. Being a native Missourian, I've been going to their shows since 2005, and it is SO. RAD. that they are becoming popular. Your art definately does them justice.

Andrew Volpe is indeed such a stud muffin dork.
vert-is-ninja Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
That's really awesome! I wish I could see them live, seem like so much fun. But I'd probably spend my whole time swooning too hard. Ugh!!!
dana-redde Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hey, I'm listening to Ludo right now! Wooo!

I like the lighting on his face! haha, I wish rum really did come in bottles with X's on them.
vigiliae Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
omg i love this song and i love ludo. you rock
Tiuni Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008  Professional Filmographer
For some reason, I really really like his tie. And I love the little messages you have on your pictures. :D
sneaksby Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
I've been listening to Ludo for a while, but I never knew how cute their lead singer was. Lamar is equally cute, if not moreso. I love his expression in this. (:
feralqueen Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008  Professional General Artist
Oh god he's so cute with his lip biting and rumple-y tie!
otherwise Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008  Professional Filmographer
.....she told me, showing restraint D:

Every time I hear that song I have to get up and make some dramatic gesture for when they go "Ooh!"

Awww, his tie crumples so neatly. <3
evilmind2 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
I see that over active imagination working already. That's why drinking always makes life better :D

Ludo fucking rocks and I LOVE YOUR ART STYLE. It's so cartoony and modern and delicious, and the atmosphere is always perfect.

chemicalpanic Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008  Student General Artist
I usually find him creepy. Very creepy on a level of creepiness the usual monster can not achieve.
But now he's just... D'AWWWW I want to hug him so badly. D:

(I also pledge allegiance to adorable dork boys and demand mine now. If you should stumble upon a source of these - might you drop me a note?)
lovely-deaths Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2008
i hope thats not creepy, i wouldn't want to be a creeps
