44 by Nata-eslava 44 by Nata-eslava
Salute! I promised and I did it.
I have been listening to Riverside not too many months, approximately from the beginning of the year (2009), superficially at first, for a wonder… But since Anno Domini High Definition album was released, I finally lent an attentive ear to this band's music and return to their old records. Today they are one of my favourite prog-rock performers. Simultaneously I know that guys experience very sharp upsurge of popularity and interest in their creation in Europe. Even ''local'' heroes must be known by sight, right? Here they are, clockwise and from left to right:
Piotr Grudziński (lead guitar player), Piotr Kozieradzki (drummer), Michał Łapaj (keyboardist, theremin player and backing vocalist) and, at last, Mariusz Duda (lead singer, bass and acoustic guitar player). Ah, yes! Szkarłatny ptak is not forgotten too.
I drew them thrice-cartoon, as I always do.

Mechanical pencil outline colored in Photoshop.
Background pictures used when imitating official artwork were taken by me and my soul mate at Cheryomushki District, at the turn of the road near my residence and from my balconies. :XD:

P.S. There were 44 layouts in sum. I learned it after end of my work; it was pure coincidence, because 44:44 is the length of ADHD album, and also 44 is a count of Riverside concerts in its supporting tour before the end of this year.
P.P.S. Red Roy is watching you! Do you mind?

О да, концерт – та еще песня была. :XD: С прелюдией и сиквелом. Психологический триллер с элементами трагикомедии и трэша, как это ни прискорбно… А картинка эта в итоге понаделала слишком много шума. Но тут я склонна верить в фатальность.

Неудивительно - вам, стольным жителям, как раз и достались самые вкусненькие кусочки :D Я вот даже автограф взять не успела - умчались после выступления паны на поезд до Москвы так быстро - комар не успел пискнуть. Даже боюсь интересоваться, что там случилось у вас D: но картинка достойная все же, было бы обидно, если б эффекта не произвела...

There are so many details there, even Michael's chicken! My fav here is Piotr Grudziński's face, you've nailed it :)
Have a lovely concert, I'm sure you'll do!!

Each time I face such a things (it is about coincidences) I receive evidence that A Great Cosmos exists. :faint:
Details… Well, to be honest, dA-variant does not contain even a tenth part of what should be visible, because its original resolution is approximately 3500x4600px. I will put it over without fail, but at the beginning I want to do a few prints – guess for what... =D

:boogie: All of them signed my copy in the morning of December 13. Also I gave this print and two portraits ([link] and [link]) as a keepsake to Michał; he was touched. :floating:

Lovely! He deserves this and much more, as he's one of the musicians of the year, for me at least!

Кстати, идея насчет позы и выражения лица Гру пришла мне в голову после одной твоей фотографии из офиса. =D

Дальше на буржуйском – пусть все видят, как пытлив русский ум… :XD:

Actually, Red Roy is a fictional personage, like that doctor from Pink Floyd The Wall, and that fruitcake was not sweet at all.
Well, since Vaski conjectured, that there is also one more Red Roy (one must be blind to do not understand, which), I am harried by constant doubts, but it is still shrouded in mystery. So even if I myself will figure the truth, I will prefer to keep silent to do not (God forbid!) ''load'' it out - any mascots are serious matters.
