Portrait, colored by FugueState Portrait, colored by FugueState
Finally got around to coloring this one. The original ink drawing can be seen here in my gallery. Some details changed along the way (hopefully for the better! ^^;)

Many, many thanks go to :iconpeahopeless:, and of course V and Evey for providing the inspiration. :-)

Media: watercolor, ink

Portrait, colored by *FugueState. Many people have suggested this artist's V for Vendetta work, and I think today is an appropriate day to feature it! All of her work has tons of passion, and though this piece is different from most of her Vendetta work, it is classic, whimsical, beautiful and full of style. If you are a Vendetta fan, be sure to stop by and look at her entire gallery! ( Featured by aunjuli )

A very beutiful piece. Love their posture - how Evey leans into him and how they hold each other's hands. The flow of the cape and the dress, and their hair, is really well done too.
A DD well deserved. Congratulations!

V for Vendetta was good but ^^; it was very confusing I kept forgetting what V was fighing for freedom?

Well...

In the film, he was fighting against the corrupt government that made him as he was, executing those people who were responsible for Larkhill and the St. Mary's Virus, and trying to give power back to the people, to try to shape a new, better government.

In the graphic novel, which inspired the film, V wanted there to be no government - instead, he wanted for everyone to rule themselves as individuals in a pure form of Anarchy. (Anarchy is not chaos; it's just self-rule without a higher authority. It tends to only work in theory, however.)

So...yeah. More information than you wanted to know, I'll bet! ^^;

It's a lot easier to like the film better - V is more approachable in it, I think. :)

It was such a teaser when Evey or whatever her name was, was about to take off his mask while he was dead. I heard in the comic she became V at the end.

FugueState Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Evey, yes. Because of the way the original story went, it was important to not see who V was. He wanted to be an idea first and foremost.

Happy Guy Fawkes Day, and congratulations on the DD.

Great job with the shading on V and the gradient of the sky. I think you might want to try to make the folds in Evey's dress a bit more realistic. Other wise, great job!

And yes, Evey's dress gave me a bit of trouble - fabric isn't exactly my forte! :blushes:
