That's old, but since I've just joined an ancient fashion supporters club here in DA, I wanted to contribute with something. I LOVE History of fashion, specially 18th. Century style. so I enjoyed drawing the hair and details. That's a pencil sketch. I didn't took any reference for hair nor outfit.
Here's another commission I did back in March, for a young lady named Kristin who really digs Doctor Who-- I portrayed her in a rose-colored version of one of the gowns that Sophia Myles wore as Madame Pompadour in the classic New Who episode, "The Girl in the Fireplace."
She's also holding a couple of marimba mallets, since that's her instrument, as well as a book, since she likes to write. And those are her two cats, M and Q. It was a birthday present-- and I'm happy to report she really likes how the portrait turned out. Huzzah!
This is an art-trade made for Jafean [link] and from her two characters, Franz and Elizabeth. This draw nearly drove me insane, and I decided to stop here, despite many mistakes remaining everywhere.
@ Jafean : Désolée, mes personnages sont au final assez éloignés de la description que tu m'en avais fait, mais c'était ça, ou finir à l'asile ^^ (Bon, au moins c'est en mode 18ème siècle, on n'a pas tout perdu ! Ok, je =>)
This is a commission I just finished for , depicting her characters Helene d'Aulnoy and Nikholaus Eckhardt, two star-crossed lovers from her paranormal gothic comic "The Light-Eater."
It's set during the French Revolution-- Helene is a reactionary French baron's daughter with an interest in Rousseau, and Nikholaus is a somewhat stuffy German minor noble who comes to Versailles. He can also be seen here: [link]
I know Coryn doesn´t looks sooooo much like she used to do, actually, but i hope you like it anyway... But well i turned her together with Emi into the 18th century... ~~~~~~~~ Edit:: Well i know their feet seems to be too small.. but well..^^""
Las últimas décadas del s.XVIII fueron de gran esplendor para los sombreros femeninos. Se estilaban grandes, para no ser menos que los peinados. He de reconocer que he prestado más atención a la cara y la mirada de la dama que a los detalles del vestuario, por eso está todo tan abocetado. No he usado referencias. ***
Last decades of 18th. Century were splendorous in hair fashion and female hat design. Hats used to be big, so they didn't rivaled the complicated hairstyles. I've to confess that I neglected a lot the details and everything is rather sketchy. I enjoyed drawing the lady's face and gaze . I didn't use any reference.
Reinette: This is my lover, the king of France. Doctor: Yeah? I'm the Lord of Time.
This is the unseen scene from Doctor Who, "The Girl in the Fireplace" episode, when the Doctor "dances" with Marquise de Pompadour. I thought that Sophia Myles was really cool as Madame, but I decided to draw her more like she looks on the paintings. Why? Because I can.
At the beginning, this was an illustration of a 18th century wedding, but when I made the background, I realized costumes didn't suit context at all. So, I changed the original lineart into a "more classic" dressing.
