Nollaig's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hiyo! My name is Nollaig, and I'm a 27 year old animation-enthusiast from Ireland. I'm not a particularly amazing artist, I just use my art as a way to vent/express my love of animated movies (stemming from a childhood obsession with TLK, though The Road To El Dorado is my favourite animated movie!

My Gallery: My gallery features all kinds of weird and wonderful things, including well known Disney and Dreamworks movie fanart, lesser known movie fanart, My Little Pony, Pokemon, some digital portraits of my favourite famous people, there's a Tardis in there somewhere and lots more - so check it out!

Commissions: I'm currently CLOSED for commissions.


Holly by Nollaig
So, I finally drew the full-body version of the bust I had previously drawn.

I did this as a method of catharsis, because last month, after 14 and a half years, we had to to put this girl to sleep. Studying photos of her for her coat patterning and taking the last few weeks to slowly work on this has really helped me wallow in and thereby come to terms with my sadness.

RIP Holly.
Sure by Nollaig
I mentioned this quote earlier to someone as an example of how beautiful the original Pooh Bear books are. Then I kinda wanted to draw something for it, and to try the retro style, which turned out to be pretty simple, so I drew this. Still took a few hours coz of this laptop, but I like it :)
Appreciation by Nollaig
Drew this with those moments in mind where a friend does something simple or off-handed but for whatever reason it just makes so suddenly so very grateful that they're in your life.

Wasted about 7 sheets of paper trying to sketch a decent lion, and gave up because it was frustrating me. I've always found these two easy to draw on paper so I've finally managed to draw the first proper scene since my old laptop died, taking my ability to sketch digitally with it.
Unfinished - Cubbie Group by Nollaig
Unfinished - Cubbie Group
Well, I went looking for the original PSP file for this today to try do a little work on it, since sketching is the hard part on this laptop and only lineart remains in this drawing.

The file is gone. So are a lot of other files, and I have no idea where they are. They must have somehow gotten lost in the transfer of stuff from my old laptop to my new one. In most cases, it was just the raw files for finished images, and isn't that big of a loss.

This, however, I worked on on-and-off for months. And it wasn't too far from being finished. Unfortunately now it never will be finished, and honestly I'm gutted because it would have been the best piece I ever drew.

Anyway. Here's the only surviving screencap I have of the progress. It was going to be a picture of the gang teaching Tojo's birds how to fly, with Nala and Kula encouraging them to fly across from the hill where Tojo and Mheetu are.
Commission: Frozen by Nollaig
Commission: Frozen
I was commissioned by a friend to do draw this picture of her two nieces with the Frozen girls and Olaf. It took 22 hours, and cost my friend €150 (€50 less than she offered). She printed and framed it for the girls, who apparently loved it, and she also printed them a few sheets of it with plain lineart so they could use them as colouring pages :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

NB: Additionally, my drawing software is now gone, as I lost the full version with the death of my last laptop, and only had a trial for this laptop. The trial ended, so I have no drawing software now. I probably won't be drawing for a while.

Sad to say that some of your art has been taken and used without copyright or credit. I apologize in advance for your hard work being used in such a way and wish I could do more.…

I disagree with you on one point; you ARE a particularly amazing artist.
