Preview of page 14 of my comic "Clues" published early 2008 in french by akileos [link]
I have added a few textures on this one, and I think I will do the same with all my boards.
Board 13 will come later, I am having trouble with it.

J'ai ajouté quelques textures sur cette planche, et je pense que je vais faire de même pour le reste des planches.
La planche 13 sera postée plus tard, vue que j'ai quelques soucis avec elle pour l'instant.
This is Louise, another character from my story also remodeled
She's a prostitute, working at Mme Beatrice's. Her mother was a prostitute too and she taught her daughter the proffession ever since she was 16. Louise is beautiful, smart and sexy. She is the perfect woman and the best one (and the most expensive one) at Mme Beatrice's. She's also in love with Will, she's never told anyone though (her mother told her never to get emotionally involved with the clients!it's bad for business). She also doesn't like Charlotte as she feels threatened by her in her place at the "house" as well as being Will's favourite.
Lavinia, all dressed up. There's a scene in the story where Hector takes Lavinia out for an evening to a nearby town, and she dolls herself up (well, more dolled up than usual). I was trying to keep her unkempt carny style but still make it seem like she has attempting to look like a proper English lady at the same time... it never really works out for her though ^_~
I really LOVE this dress Christine wears in Don Juan Triumphant (and the point of no return) in the musical. It's a kind of Front zone dress from the 18th century, but in a short version. Very interesting
I really loved the Point of No return footage with Sierra and Ramin for the 25th anniversay! Christine was hot! haha
Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis XVI and one of more famous queens of history, from the movie with Kirsten Dust as the queen of France.
About the "Let them eat brioches!" question:
According with LadyNorrington [link] : "Archduchess Marie-Antoinette and Infanta Marie-Therese were born about a century apart but both women would come to the same destiny as Queen of France. Both the Infanta and the Archduchess are claimed to have spoken the infamous words: "Let them eat cake."
Marie-Therese was simple, sometimes dull, woman compared to her flashy husband Louis XIV. However unfaithful as he was, Marie was always in love with him and he always cared for her. When Marie died, Louis said "This is the first trouble she has caused me."
Marie-Antoinette was very flashy compared to her simple, sometimes dull, husband Louis XVI. Marie cared a great deal for her husband despite his fascination with locks and boats as opposed to her and in return, Louis wrote tragically about his caring wife while imprisoned."
Theodora, empress of Bizantine Empire. Wife of Justinian. Theodora is one of my favorite queens!
Theodora was empress of the Roman (Byzantine) Empire and the wife of Emperor Justinian I. Like her husband, she is a saint in the Orthodox Church, besides to be, perhaps, the most influential and powerful woman in the Roman Empire's history.
Her beauty, wit and amusing character drew attention from Justinian, who wanted to marry her. However, he couldn't, since he was heir of the throne of his uncle, Emperor Justin I, and a Roman law from Constantine's time prevented government officials from marrying actresses. Even Empress Euphemia, who liked Justinian and ordinarily refused him nothing, was against his wedding with an actress. But when Euphemia had died, Justin repealed the law, and Justinian managed to marry Theodora. By this point, she already had a daughter (probably Justinian was the girl's father).
As empress, Theodora participated in Justinian's legal and spiritual reforms, and her involvement in the increase of the rights of women was substantial. She had laws passed that prohibited forced prostitution and closed brothels.
Theodora is considered a great female figure of the Byzantine Empire, and a pioneer of feminism, because of the laws she passed, increasing the rights of women. As a result of Theodora's efforts, the status of women in the Byzantine Empire was elevated far above that of women in the Middle East and the rest of Europe.
This outfit is inspired on the most famous portrait of Theodora, the mosaic of her and Justinian in Ravenna.
