ThaliaAngel91's Profile Picture
Annika L.
Artist | Traditional Art
My name is Annika Lillan. I am a warm-hearted creature that sometimes believes to be a human, born in the wrong epoch. If I could choose a random carrier, I'd become a viking. I'd make for a great shielmaiden, as I'm almost 6'2" tall. :XD:

I adore art, but also lots of other things. I keep a small horde of stickbugs (phasmidae) and two giant millipedes. I am addicted to chocolate and excessive wool hoarding, I love Star Wars, books, gaming, handcrafts, unconventional cultural phenomena (like reenactement), celtic/viking culture and stuff I find in nature, like snail shells, leafes, bones, wings and claws. The appartment I share with my beloved partner looks like a small museum. Sometimes I work in a falconry, helping to show medieval hunting to people. I also work as a zoo guide. I tend to take sides with villains and antagonists, and especially misunderstood fantasy races. I can't watch Lord of the Ring without frowning when there's orcs being killed. Much affection for orcs and goblins from my side.
I love viking reenactment, and because of me being a poor student, I need to make most of the equipment myself. I taught myself tablet weaving, viking wire knit, naalebinding, bonecarving and sewing.

Being a neopagan, I try to spend much time out in nature watching and listening. I also try help protecting its beauty, that's one of the reasons why I study Biology. I'm currently doing my MSc.

I can't really identify my favourite way to express art. I draw and paint landscapes, portraits, cartoons, scifi, fantasy, anthro, nude art and much more, although my favorite style should be folkloristic fantasy. I like to work with all traditional mediums.


Summer Glade by ThaliaAngel91
Summer Glade
I really love the idea of the wild man of the woods, be it the celtic/pagan Shuibhne, the horned god Cernunnos or the greek Satyr. In this painting, I tried to make my own interpretation of the Greenman, adding features of the stag, making his hair and antlers fade into a messy summer glade. I'm planning to do all four seasons in this style, turning hair and stuff into vegetation. There already is an autumn version of it. You can see it here:…
Up for a Goblin lovestory? Read description! by ThaliaAngel91
Up for a Goblin lovestory? Read description!
Do you think Goblins rule, but also feel that they don't get enough attention when it comes to ̶m̶̶u̶̶s̶̶h̶̶y̶̶ ̶̶l̶̶o̶̶v̶̶e̶̶d̶̶o̶̶v̶̶e̶̶y̶̶ ̶̶r̶̶o̶̶m̶̶a̶̶n̶̶c̶̶e̶ hot stuff? Are you a fan of Goblin assassin Styx from "Of Orcs and Men" and "Master of Shadows", or just of the green little bastards in general?

This might be a story for you.

WARNING: The story contains lots of sex, swears, alcohol, fictional drugs, gore and violence. Also, it contains a Goblin, which explains all of the aforementioned. What did you expect from a totally romantic lovestory about a ̶h̶̶a̶̶n̶̶d̶̶s̶̶o̶̶m̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶a̶̶n̶̶d̶̶ ̶̶w̶̶e̶̶l̶̶l̶-̶m̶̶a̶̶n̶̶n̶̶e̶̶r̶̶e̶̶d̶ backstabbing, sneaky Goblin assassin?

If I aroused your interest, visit THIS… story on ff and check out "Barimen's Legacy" by Aescela, a collaboration fanfic project about our favourite little dirtbag ever!
Jode Pepperdyne by ThaliaAngel91
Jode Pepperdyne
As some may already have noticed, I'm hugeass fan of Stan Nicholl's "Orcs" trilogies, and this is my version of Jode Pepperdyne from the Bad Blood trilogy.

Spoilers ahead.

Pepperdyne is a former warrior who had ended up in slavery due to his maligned origin, bound in service to the more than incompetent merchant Standeven. He remains loyal to that asshole to not tarnish what is left of his honor even more than it has already been, stigmatized by others. Troubled past, doesn't talk much, excellent swordsman, really smart.
Pepperdyne (and his owner) meet the band of Orcs, get stuck with them and (for now...) stay. During their journey Jode saves the live of Coilla, the mistress of strategy and first corporal among the warband.  The two start talking every now and then, and Pepperdyne opens up a little. His past, being stigmatized by others and forced into service, pretty much resembles what has happened to the orcs, and Coilla can relate to that. Long story short... After a lot of more or less subtle flirting the two hook up and become a couple. Frowned on by many in the band, but Coilla would rip their heads off if they did something to her Jode. Besides, Jode is such an excellent swordsman that most orcs kind of accept his presence. Haskeer not, of course.

Jode is described as being tall, having long blonde hair and dark eyes, and even it is mentioned that he doesn't wear a beard, I can't imagine him without one. I always thought of him as some viking warrior, so I used some style elements of the Rus vikings in his clothing. The black fur is supposed the make his gear resemble the Orcs' armor more. It could be that I had some images of Jon Snow on my desktop when I designed him, so there originated a little inspiration too. 
Nasty Orcses. by ThaliaAngel91
Nasty Orcses.
I did some random sketches of different orcish characters. Most of them just sort of happened while I was drawing.
The male on the upper left side is probably Stryke, the female in the middle right is Coilla like I see her. The others are random, male and female.
I am really, really shocked and sad. I can´t believe there won´t be any more Discworld novels. Most of my favourite books ever were written by this genius, without a doubt one of the greatest authors ever. Thank you so much for all the fun I had.
