A little birthday gift for my dear , showing her beautiful Fanaa dancing (: She has been a great friend, an inspiration and a constant source of encouragement not only for me, but for many people here across dA. She deserves much more, but I hope that in the future I can give her something better I wish you the very best for this new year in your life! The biggest of hugs for you, dear!
Happy Birthday sweetie, I hope you had a wonderful day!
I'm really sorry this arrived so late, but I did not have the time to finish it before. So, =Gnewi's characters, Jurre and Emrah (they are probably my favourite OC couple xD)
HAPPY (REALLY) BELATED BIRTHDAY SARAH!!!
You have been an amazing friend who has encouraged me a lot to keep working and improve, and I'm so happy you decided to try and draw yourself, now we can see what a great artist AND writer you are! Thank you so much for everything!! I really hope you like this gift, I put lots of love in it *_*
I was listening to beautiful romantic songs so this turned out really really cute T.T (the title was inspired by this Sleeping at Last's song: [link]
The brothel was the most expensive in the city, filled with girls of all ages, shapes and races, fitted to please every customer who had enough money to pay, and they dressed in beautiful northern-like dresses, made of once luxurious Khuzan silks, a mixture of north and south. Cheap jewelry adorned their necks and hair.
At Madame Julia's, Anne was known as "The Little Siren". A pirate who bought her for a night of pleasure recognized her as One Hand's daughter and, mocking her, he and his mates named her after his father's lost ship. At first had to bite her lip to avoid crying, but in time the name became part of her, a way to remember that one day she would regain what was hers by right...
I missed drawing my girl And she needed a new "working dress", the one I had drawn last year was hideous xD
Paint tool SAI, around 3 and a half hours of work.
And tadaaaa! Idea! I'm a huge musicals' fan, and I loooved Moulin Rouge and this is one of my favourite songs, so powerful and sad, yet angry at the same time! And I thought "Wasn't one of Shem's characters half argentinian or something e_e??" And yes!!
So I chose Solsticio Bagliore (who's into Latin Music ) to represent this special tango. And well, I couldn't help to add my own little detail over there, we needed a dance partner and, as Tango was born in Buenos Aires harbour's brothels... Here we have our well known Anne xD
This particular song would be perfect if, in some parallel universe, they were together or something (as I understood Solsticio has a boyfriend, but let's imagine he also liked girls for a minute xD), in the early XX century Buenos Aires! Solsticio as a... Sailor/Musician and Anne as her usual self, but in some other costume.
The visual inspiration came from a few vintage Art Nouveau Tango posters I bought two years ago in the streets of Buenos Aires, in Caminito actually.
I really hope you like it! I'm glad I made it on time, I had a lot of fun drawing this But unfortunatelly I had to go to the Hospital for some tests (I'm so damn weak xD) and I was feeling really bad these days and for a minute I thought I wouldn't finish it, but I did!!
Another beautiful Tangos you can hear to get in the mood: [link] [link]
And if you like something more contemporary, just go for Bajofondo, it's amazing!
