la Hepburn by moose562 la Hepburn by moose562
After so many people saying to me on here in the past 'Hey where is Audrey Hepburn in your icons series' I finally buckled under the pressure ;)

Now I really don't get the whole deal with Audrey at *all*, I mean I don't think she is no where near as glam as la Mazza (and that comes down to my theory that tragedy=glamour) and whilst Audrey Hepburn had a pretty tragic death (however it was at a 'good' age, whatever *that* is), she died of natural causes and it wasn't really premature. Also, she seemed pretty much in control of her life and career (from what I know) whereas the type of icons I like are the ones that were tragically glam - ie. Marilyn, Judy et al and were on some sort of 'celebrity' rollercoaster.

There's me explaining myself again :blush: < hopes he has covered all angles>

Anyway I hope all you Audrey fans enjoy the image. I don't really know a lot about her, so I don't know what colour is 'her' or what sort of person she was. And to be honest I don't really care either lol - although I must say she looked **FAB** in 'Breakfast At Tiffanys' which I found dull beyond all belief. I think the only film I ever liked her in was 'My Fair Lady'. And then that should really have been Julie Andrews in that role anyway...but ENOUGH ranting!

This image took me BLOODY ages to draw - the pc kept crashing and then I changed the background from several ginger kittens faces to circles, and also the whole crop changed and then the text positioning - THAT was murder. Now, the more I look at her the more I like her whole look. Maybe my opinion is changing - I got the quote from 'Breakfast At Tiffanys' too, and anyone who says "Hand me my purse, would you, darling" is a friend of mine! hehe

This picture is great, I love Hepburn's style. I think it would be funny though if it said "You look like my brother Fred. Do you mind if I call you Fred?"

well god knows she wil never be as fab as marilyn or madonna. but i have a little soft spot for miss audrey in my heart. a good movie by her was cherade, or sabrina, (just in case your interested) and believe it or not her career did have a lot of issues being that she was anorexic for most of her life. but thats neither here nor there, your picture is beautiful honey, as dull and un interesting as you find her you managed to put a lot of life into the picture.

haha - hey thanks - you were another person who's opinion on this was anticipated. I remember you mentionning her to me before. I had no idea she suffered with anorexia - now that I find interesting! Am I a complete morbid son of a bi-hatch or what?! :p i just always assumed she was 'of slight frame' or something. golly.

thanks for the comment as well - you know, i am glad you can see some sort of life in the image...vectors can be so flat. no texture. i am trying to add texture now. maybe this is the turning point.

at laaaast. Maybe the reason I prefer Audrey is cos she didnt do the whole mad celebrity deal...far too many nutters in showbiz these days.

getting a fave!

Oh David! Thanks! haha! I knew there was a slight chance you'd be happy I finally acknowledged her in some way! lol

i'll admit it, she is glam, but she ain't tragic. and thats the difference. you go the 'indie' way and i'll go 'mainstream' lol!

i definetely think that she is the Indie choice...she has the whole coquettish thing down, a bit like Sophie EB. and she is very classical and slight :)

did she ever get her feet out? she did didn't she?! in my fair lady? i cant remember lol

oh and SPANX for the :+fav: el davidos of the clan of eagles!!!!

I'm still surprised you don't like her! (though I personally am not a fan either) But this pic certainly looks great, especially with the hint of blue! Off-sets the pink very well, and I like the circles! Everytime I hear the word 'darling' now I think of Edna. ;)
Reply
:iconmoose562:
moose562 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2005
HAHA! yes I think of Edna as well - or if someone says 'BLACK' I immediately want to go "Black...is *my* colour, its slimming, its sophisticated...it's, it's just too fabulous on meeee!" ;p

Thanks for la commentio Astrido-San. I dunno I just don't get the whole deal. Maybe its the way she carried herself people liked, but I dunno. BIG YAWN over here ;)
