My eighth 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.

This time I actually tried to make the subject look tad bit more masculine rather than just androgynous since Pierrot is a male role and as it goes… all my other ones look utterly feminine.

Drawn in 2009.
