regency #3 by kayananas regency #3 by kayananas
pencil, ps5, 1.5 hrs

i'd thought of empire era/regency dresses as all having weirdly high chests : [link], but i was wrong! plunging necklines abound :

high chest? Ah probably cause they were inspired by ellenic greek peplos, that was tied under the breast. Empire era was one of those neoclassic revival times with all stuffs inspired to... well classic greek-roman world ^^

Really a cool pic, i like the white-red contrast, and the hat :D btw eve in if unintentional, her lack of arm gives her character charm :D

Beautiful ! :D
I like the colors and the shapes, I just regret we don't see any part of her right arm, as if it didn't exist (-> Only showing the top of her right fingers could make it).

thank you! and that's true - my original intent had been that her shawl was hiding her arm, but the more i look at this, it indeed looks as though she's armless O_o of course, now i'm interested in what her story would be if that were the case! :D

I'm loving the ties down the front, very neat design. And the red with the white is really lovely, good colour combination. Thank you for sharing.

Where's her other arm?

behind her shawl ^_^ i could justify this by saying "artistic license!", but indeed when i was drawing this i thought that her swaying, leaning pose would be ruined if her other arm were exposed. ...or was i just lazy at the time... hm. XD
