Angry Man by Starlene Angry Man by Starlene


This dates back to when me and ~Nyranor saw Les Mis in ÅST (of course). The first time, Nyranor sent almost every principal actor a drawing. The next day, we met the cast before the show and some of them thanked her for the drawings. But Samuel Harjanne, Enjolras for the last four weeks, had something to complain about: he hadn't received a drawing at all! Because Samuel played the role for such a short amount of time, we hadn't found any photos of him as Enjy. So no references for Nyranor, and no drawing. We explained this to him and he agreed, hard to work with no reference - and then he struck the pose portrayed here, and in the photo above, and told us to snap some shots so he could get his drawing too.

We sent him a drawing each at the last curtain call, but I'm afraid no one actually used this pose back then...

Maybe I'll one day get sick of the digital paint + watercolour stock combo, but that day is not today. Also, this took an unreasonable amount of time compared to the quality of the finished product.

Les Mis is not mine.
Stock used: GREEN SPLATTER STOCK by *GaryStearly, kecky's magical brushes by ~Kecky

Hey, I LIKE the digital paint + watercolour stock combo. I think it's good. Also, nice execution of the DRAMATIC POSE there.

Enjolras wouldn't be happy about this, but he looks terribly cute.

awesomeness. Love it of course.

Like ten years ago I met the cast after a production...A bunch of other Mis-fits and I staked out at the performer's exit behind the theater and waited...I can clearly remember the looks of varying degrees of panic in the actors' faces as they emerged (no longer in costume and probably wanting to go get some food and sleep) and the fangirl horde pounced... Sounds like your cast members didn't mind the attention as much :p

Haha, thanks!

Yaaaay! A new, unsuspecting individual to bore with my stories! ;)
I've done that stage-dooring thing once too, and it was in London... Matt Lucas was in the cast back then and there were about twenty others, too - and I think in London someone stays to stalk them almost every night. So they weren't creeped out like your cast (poor guys - but I suppose they were glad to have such enthusiastic fans..?)! :D
When it comes to the ÅST cast here, well. There's almost zero stagedooring in Finland, so they'd been very creeped out indeed! But, in the ÅST case... Last fall, Samuel's predecessor in the role of Enjolras somehow found my blog entry about his performance. A couple of messages later I found myself meeting the cast - because he invited me to. Panic! Also included, a backstage tour and a free ticket and whatnot. So exciting, I still can't believe my luck!!
So, when my friend Nyranor took the trip from USA to Finland some months later and we went to see the show... I just asked the theatre if they'd mind letting my friend meet the cast too. They didn't. It was awesome.

Oh, hey~... you always have this ridiculous amount of great stories to share with the world! :D I'm jealous in a good way! :D:D

~As I said, in a really good way! :D

LOL returning, how awesome is that! Poor man, anyway... I mean... even if you are playing some role for a short amount of time you want to get some... love back. Huh... sometimes! :D Cool he made a pose and cool you all sent him the drawings in the end. But not cool no one used the poor pose in the end. It's way nice you used it even if it's five months late! I'm sure he is going to love it! :giggle: I say it's a great drawing!

I'm just good at writing three paragraphs about subjects that could be covered with one five-word sentence. ;) But hey, glad if you enjoy the stories!

I'd probably used this pose back then - but I had drawn my picture already when the photo was taken, I just didn't tell him since it was supposed to be a surprise. :D
But yeah... He had actually been Feuilly and u/s Enjolras during the first season, and from what I hear, he got to play Enjy back then once or twice already - so he definitely deserved some gifts!

Thanks so much! :hug:
