Lindsey Stirling by Meghan-Vu Lindsey Stirling by Meghan-Vu
I don't remember how I discovered Lindsey Stirling; all I know is that it happened at the beginning of this past summer. The first video I saw of hers was We Found Love, and after watching it, I absolutely fell in love with her. (Hello biggest girlcrush since Emma Watson...)

Lindsey is magical and beautiful, and I'd been planning to draw her for a long time now. (I have so many different screenshot references of her from multiple music videos, but the problem is that she seems to get prettier with every video!) I LOVED her makeup/hairstyle in a scene from her Phantom of the Opera medley ([link]) and finally decided to use one of the scenes featuring it as my reference. I didn't keep track of how long this took me, but my guess is LONG. Probably around 10 hours, maybe more. Sharpie and pencil portraits always take me the longest because I have to figure out how many distinct shades of grey I want to use. In this, I kind of ditched my usual approach of saying, "Okay, I want __x__ many shades of grey, so this area will be this shade, that area will be that shade, etc." I like how it turned out, though - sometimes having just one shade in one spot can look too flat but having two distinct ones would look too blocky.

ALSO, I GET TO MEET HER TODAY BECAUSE I HAVE VIP TICKETS TO HER SHOW AND I'M GOING TO SHOW IT TO HER AND ASK HER TO SIGN IT AND I AM SO EXCITED CAN YOU TELL

...And because I was frantically trying to finish this, I have not started my homework for tomorrow yet. #priorities

Most of the fan art I have seen of Lindsey is...poorly done to put it in a kind way. But your artwork blows me away. It is the first gorgeous (let alone even decent!) artwork I have seen. Be proud. .

Hi!
I am from Lindsey Stirling's team -
We were wondering if you have a PSD file of this image that you could create?
We are wanting to use this image as her next t-shirt design so it will look a little something like this:

We just need your permission, and the original design (internet file, preferably a PSD)

My apologies; I didn't realize that I had to be part of the Official Stirlingite group to be able to see the t-shirt design. I've left a comment on the link, so again, please let me know if you're still interested in collaborating!

Hello! For some reason, the Facebook link isn't working - it's telling me that the content is currently unavailable. (If you could provide a working link, that'd be great - I really appreciate your interest and I'd love to see what you have in mind!)

Please send me a note to discuss further logistics if you're still interested in using my design. :)

Awesome piece good sir, google images serves me well, by far the best artwork done imo for her. Short story be told I started watching her videos just because I'm a skyrim nut and friend linked me a Skyrim cover, was her and Peter Hollen's. Fast forward 3 weeks and I'm at her first tour concert in CT, missed out on VIP tickets BUT being a shy creature I found the gall to go with one of my two friends that night and sneak back in 30 minutes after the concert. Chatted with her, got pics, good time, the 10 minutes are now a blur in my mind :saddummy:
