Pierrot VI by Nyxity Pierrot VI by Nyxity
My sixth attempt at drawing the romanticized French Pierrot.


I rather like the character... at least the version where Pierrot is the utterly naive; the easily manipulated; the endlessly trusting; a lovelorn dreamer; the true romantic and one willing to do the near impossible for the one he loves. Who can't feel for such a guy?

Anyway, skipping the moon-shaped face concept, I went for the somewhat fragile, wane appearance since in his earliest incarnations he was often mistreated and hungry or in worst cases half-starved... So the concept of him having a moon-shaped face is hard for me to grasp at times.

I also went for considerably effeminate/androgynous here... 'cause I like the ambiguous sex type, in truth. Still, they seem to become more feminine in my progressions. Oh well.

I decided to go for a different flow when it came to the costume this time around a more pleated ruffled-collar, angel/bell sleeves and disc buttons. As usual, my proportions are off, but that is something I never notice (nor seem to be able to fix the few times I do) until the work is finished. Boo-hoo.

Drawn in 2009.
