Elrian’s diary – about Lairon Tirithion

I started Elrian’s Diary in summer 2011, continuously documenting my Larp character’s adventures.
After four years and 70 pages it is now halfway complete.

Here is the working process of a recent page.

Diary 01

After sketching the content of the page – which I often do while in-character –
I rewrite the text and outline the illustration in ink.

Diary 02

Next is removing unnecessary graphite and colouring the page with watercolour.

Diary 03

Sometimes I add some details in white or silver afterwards.
Not all the pages are this elaborate and well planned. Some are just scribbled notes I took in character and twice I even ripped out pages when my character wanted to get rid of them.
