Join in the shadow dance by Nata-eslava Join in the shadow dance by Nata-eslava
:#1: Michał Łapaj, a keyboard and theremin player of Riverside (Polish prog-rock band - [link]), and also their backing vocalist.

I was inspired with respect to him at once, since I learned about this remarkable musician. I dare say, that he is one of the most highly skilled keyboardists of our time, without regard for his rather young age. His whole life is ahead of him. Hope, someday people will stop to draw a parallel between him and great Jon Lord and welcome Michał as another master in his own right.

Mechanical lead pencil outline colored in Photoshop. Goodness! I had to make drafts of all these keyboards and synth as if it was an engineering drawing. :faint:

Great work, really. :D It's so similar to Michał, good job rly.
I saw them on Cieszanów Rock Festiwal (23rd August this year) and I love 'em now even more than earlier. :D It was really, really, REALLY amazing... I met them before show and oh my God, I was really happy. :D I think they're the best Polish band ever. :)

Thank you! Even Michał himself had appreciated it, so I have no more doubts about this picture.

Have you listen something of Riverside already?

Yes, I managed to present him a folder with prints when the band visited Moscow last December. I remember him as really responsive young fellow. Other guys also were very friendly. :aww:

In due time I was starting from Out of Myself album, and then – by chronological order.

Душевно, душевно, прямо застали его в момент вдохновенного погружения в творческий процесс. Спасибо за возможность рассмотреть все в деталях ;)

:floating: Не уверена, что знаю, как это погружение происходит - в распоряжении было лишь одно видео, охватившее весь их концерт, в разрешении для мобильников. Так что, это наполовину воспоминания, наполовину предположения.

А с деталями ( особенно корпусов ) я все равно накосячила, как ни старалась. :shakefist: Слава Богу, не взялась за самое первое видение этой картинки - там вообще планировался вид сверху и два ряда клавиш.
