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.
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]
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!
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..^^""
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.
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 =>)
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 , 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.
