Eluveitie - Frontman by Kiekan88 Eluveitie - Frontman by Kiekan88
Part 2 of my Illustration midterm. I had to do a second portrait in a different medium and technique. This is Chrigel Glanzmann, the vocalist and Uilleann Pipes player of one of my favorite folk metal bands, Eluveitie.

If you've never heard the band, check 'em out:

I just want to tell you that I love this picture so much that I use it for every profile picture online since early this year. Seriously, I'd buy this in print form if you did such things.

This is awesome. I like how you didn't put all of him, just enough to be recognizable.

Did you see them on the Heathenfest tour? I just saw 'em for the third time on the 10th. Eluveitie is amazing live, heh.

Thanks for the complement.

Yeah, last night in Los Angeles. First time seeing them live. The venue was terrible though! Sound problems plagued everyone's set, the acoustics were awful, and the staff was incredibly rude. But Eluveitie was still worth it, and got to meet Chrigel, Kay, and Anna after the show.

Apparently the places' channels weren't setup for the acoustic songs, so we didn't get any of those. I was sorta bummed, Omnos and Brictom are rad.

And quite welcome :]

those are uillean pipes???? cooool..... Nightwish has some songs where you can hear those pipes. Check out The Islander and Last of the wilds, they're both awesome...

I rather despise Nightwish. I think their first two albums, Angels Fall First and Oceanborn, are decent. But other than those two albums, I truly can't stand that band.

Awesome! Its a pleasure to hear that directly from an Eluveitie member! I'm gonna be seeing you guys when you come play in Illinois in May during Paganfest. Any chance we can hang out?

really really really good. anyway, nice to see another Eluveitie fan around. they are great. I was so dissapointed when I heard that Pagan fest is cancelled for Slovenia. just imagine... Ensiferum, Korpiklaani, Moonsorrow, Eluveitie and Tyr! but it's cancelled now :(

Thats terrible! Thankfully the show in my area is still going on in May.

And yes, I agree, there needs to be FAR more Eluveitie fans.

Thanks for the compliment.
