Another rococo lady. This time, she's a very young one.
My intention was to draw her full- length, but I got bored before that...XDD
I used pencil and some photoshop effects.

This is a commission I just finished for :iconrosengeist:, 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]

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 =>)

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.

Look, more 18th century people! Yes, it's my good friend the Marquis de Sade again, this time stepping out with his redheaded mistress, Laure de Lauris. This was another commission for the wonderful :iconjadexmara:, who, like the divine Marquis, is a person of the most discriminating taste.

The idea behind this pic was, de Sade and Laure are at a masquerade ball, dressed in costumes. Laure is all flowers and innocence, and de Sade is looking appropriately devilish.

I think Laure's hoops are my favorite part of this picture. You practically could hide a family of midgets under those things.

I recently finished a commission of two sketches of ladies wearing 18th century clothing and wigs.

As these are sketches I didn't ink them at all and just used watercolours to add some colour and then a quick overlay in PS, that being said I am pretty happy with how they turned out! :)

In my head I kept referring to this as the 'Emerald' sketch, for obvious reasons!

Dresses from 1740s are what we call rococo fashion. By 1745 skirts reach their ultimate width. It can be more than arm-span of the wearer.

Contouche evolves into robe à la française, with opening in front that shows decorated bodice and jupe. Back is pleated ([link])

Hairdos remain simple and powdered. Make up is obligatory for every lady over 13 years old. Women paint their faces and cleavage with pale complexion, they use listick, big amounts of rouge, mouches in shape of stars, hearts and cupids, and they paint their veins blue. Make-up is meant to look artificial.
