  1. Hi!

    This is not a where, when or who question, but a what...

    What instrument is Jimmy playing? Is this a Mandoloncello? Anybody knows?

    Oh, btw, I can't find the mystery-thread (am I too stupid?) Can somebody give me the link?


  2. I'm posting here again...Seriously... I don't know when I was here last - and posting was even longer ago...

    Alright, I hope you're not fed up with my screenshots, but they are the only things I can contribute to here, that people "have not seen" (at least not unmoving...)

    Ohkay, here are the last two shots of "In my Time of Dying" from Earls Court:

    dying34.jpg

    I so much love this one! Look at his face...

    dying38.jpg

    And now, Stairway from Earls Court:

    Why is Robert saying "Priceless"? And why is Jimmy laughing? (As seen here)

    stairway35.jpg

    Alright, nothing special again...

    My next project is to finally shoot "It might get Loud". Wait for it!


  3. Alex, lovely as always! I really like his eyes and hair in this one! Great again!

    DMachine, absolutely amazing work! I wish I had the patience to draw something like that someday!

    JohnPaulJesus, those drawings of yours are great! Especially the White Dragon Suit Jimmy got a lot of dynamics.

    Keep them drawings coming, please!


  4. Thanksss!

    Ohkay, here's the promised Valentine's Day Drawing, I did for a contest on dA.

    That idea came really quickly... I only had to think about it for seconds, then the dialogue and all the other stuff popped up in my mind. I drew that on the last day of my skiing holidays. Bonzo's shirt is supposed to be the one with the peacock feathers, but I had no reference photo to work of and I wanted to finish this drawing.

    Ohkay, Jimmy is holding a book - I don't know what book it is. I just didn't want to leave his hand empty, so I put a black book inside. Uhm...Bonzo seems to want to know what book it is, because he reaches for it.

    Now to "Lupercalia"... It was a Roman Feast on Feb 15th... Supposedly, Valentin from Termi died on that day (somewhen in the 3rd century) and who knows why Christianity took that day (got something to do a with a poem by Chaucer)... If you're interested, look it up ^^

    (But I had to let Jimmy say something like that ^^)

    And I guess you all know about the Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929 (Bugs Moran and Al Capone). It too is portrayed in Billy Wilder's "Some like it Hot" (Gangster's names are "Spats Colombo" and "Toothpick Charlie", oh my, I love this film!)

    In fact I don't really care about Valentine's Day. I just wanted to enter the contest and got that idea... I hope you like it!


  5. Heyo!

    Well, well, well, I did this long before Christmas. It was a drawing for a T-Shirt I gave to Martina as a birthday present on Jan 14th.

    Well, Jimmy playing "In my Time of Dying" '75 in Earl's Court. I just love it how he moves while playing that song...

    Sorry for the weird angle of his left arm, but I couldn't manage to draw it differently...

    This is the t-shirt I gave Martina on her birthday.

    Left is front-side of the t-shirt, right the back side - I had the text of "In my Time of Dying" printed on the back side.

    The drawing above is now in a "frame" and given to Martina as well.

    She loves the t-shirt! (At least, this is what she tries to convince me of ^^)

    A sort of "Valentine's Day" drawing will follow this week... (just to tell you, I'm not a fan of the valentine's day, but I'm in a contest on dA and had this wonderful idea to draw...)


  6. Hey, people! Good work!

    Here's mine:

    Ok, Jimmy's birthday! I did this on his birthday on Saturday around noon and wanted to post it directly afterwards, but then the internet was dying on me. It’s now Monday I know, but it is the first time the internet works for more than just two minutes and I hope long enough for me to post it finally… Stupid Internet…

    Ohkay, exactly 40 years ago (on Saturday...) was the gig in the Royal Albert Hall - Jimmy's 26th birthday. So this was drawn in remembrance of it - and also in remembrance of his Black Beauty, which he lost shortly afterwards. (by the way, I noticed on Sunday, that the body of the Black Beauty is too small...)

    Uhm, the pose with the Whiskey glass didn't happen on stage... But I wanted to draw him with the guitar and he played it on the three encores. Just imagine the four boys going out and celebrating his birthday after the concert ^^

    So, well, Happy 66th Birthday, Mr. Page! I hope he'll stay well (and tours ^^ and comes to Austria) and gorgeous and all!

    I had a drink on him Saturday night at the Laurel Leaf that night (or two...or three...)

    Have fun with it!


  7. Thanks a lot!!

    I'm sorry that you always have to read, that I think my drawings are bad. I'll try to stop saying I screwed this thing up and screwed that thing up...

    Ohhkay, tomorrow I need to have a Jimmy drawing finished (I still lack ideas :P)


  8. So, my birthday drawing for Jonesy...

    Oh well... I screwed it up totally... It doesn't look like him at all and he doesn't get through... I could cry! I'm ashamed of myself for even posting it here for his birthday, but I didn't have the nerve to try again... I'm so sorry for providing you with work I don't even like myself...

    But, anyway... Happy 64th, Mr. Jones!

    Oh, I intended his hairstyle to be January 1970, so actually my drawing is for his 24th birthday... What present it might be, he has in his hand...?

  9. I've watched the film yesterday for the fourth time and it is getting better everytime I see it. I really loved it from the first time I saw it. Not only from a musical point of view, but also from a filmic one. The whole concept and presentation of the guitars and the guitarists was really well done and thought through. Especially the intro of the film, when Jimmy plays Embryo No 1, how the details of the guitars are displayed is just wonderful. And also other shots in the film are overwhelming (after all Guillermo Navarro is one of the cinematographers).

    One of my absolute favourite parts is when Jimmy is sitting in front of Headly Grange and playing Battle of Evermore on the mandolin. I think it was good that the focus and main theme of the film was on the guitar (like it was supposed to be), but they also brought different aspects and talents from each of the guitarists (like Jack White on the piano).

    Five stars from me ^^


  10. Well, these are some news. Although, I don't really think it'll concern me, with living in Austria. Not many people I'm interested in find their way here... But I'm happy for those who are able to see him, if he's going to tour.

    And, concerning the Embryo No. 1 Video... it's already been removed from youtube - I spent weeks to find it and then I'm not online here for two weeks and manage to miss it!


  11. Good job, Magenta and Zep Head!

    Keep it up...

    I have to do a Jonesy birthday drawing today (and I don't even have a good idea...)

    Oh, don't miss it! This is Cynthia's new Jimmy painting on DA: Jimmy

    I don't know, if she plans to post it here, but anyway, it's the link for it!


  12. Hi!

    First things first: Diana-loura, that drawing is great!

    Well, I haven't been here for weeks... But I come back with a Zeppelin drawing (ALL of them, this time!)

    This is my Led Zeppelin Christmas share. I especially did this for the christmas contest of a Led Zeppelin fan club on deviant Art, but I'm not sure, if there are enough participants ^^ I did it anyway.

    Well, what does it have to do with Christmas? In Austria it is tradition to have several so-called "Christkindlmärkte" (they also exist in Germany, but there they are called "Weihnachtsmärkte", so "Christmas Markets"). Alone in Vienna there are nearly twenty of them. This tradition is very old - the first real Christkindlmarkt (like it is today) dates back into the 18th century.

    Since 1975, the biggest Christkindlmarkt (and the best-known, but also most commercialised) is in front of the Viennese Rathaus (town hall) - and herein fits my drawing. Imagine Led Zep in 1975 at the Rathaus Christkindlmarkt. Today it is tradition to drink "Punsch" (I don't know the English word - is it "punch"?) there - I don't know if it was sold in 1975 already... But on my drawing it is. The four Zep boys drinking Punsch at the Christkindlmarkt (judging from their looks, they already had several of them ^^)

    So, now, I messed up Bonzo again... Jonesy is tolerable (again) and Jimmy and Robert look really good (especially their drunk grins). I don't know, I thought that earmuffs fit to Jimmy (don't ask me why ), Santa-hats fit to Robert and Jonesy and I thought a Russian cap would fit to Bonzo. But then I had no reference-pic of a Russian cap and I had to improvise - and now look what happened to it! Ah, what a shame... Poor Bonzo, I always mess him up...

    Anyway, Merry Christmas to all of you!

  13. Hi! I'm clearly here not often enough (but I totally lack time at the moment, sorry...)

    Well, these are five more screenshots from "In my Time of Dying" Earls Court.

    Hope, you enjoy them!

    dying22.jpg

    Oh my, that belly, that hand...

    dying25.jpg

    dying26.jpg

    Well, in fact Jonesy and part of Robert is on this shot too... I love the photos/shots/etc on which you see Jimmy between Robbit's legs :drool:

    dying28.jpg

    Ahhhh, the belly on this photo... :drool:

    dying31.jpg

    I don't have more to offer, sorry, but I hope, you still like it!
