:iconmiss-oc-pageant: Round Two: Swimwear :: Queen Gwenevere

A day at the beach? How grand! Perfect for yachting! And so Her Majesty sets sail for new and amusing lands aboard the HMS Goldfish... (Is it a fish? Is it a boat? It's a fishboat! Or possibly a boatfish!)

And yes, that is indeed a swimsuit, if a rather old-fashioned one... Say, circa 1880 or thereabouts. (Aside from the lobster theme, it's actually based pretty closely on Victorian swimsuits.) (Hey, she's an old lady, she likes plenty of coverage.) Mind you, this is not her majesty's first public appearance in a swimsuit...

Why lobsters? Why not lobsters? :dummy:

Thanks! =D Her majesty appreciates the catcalls, but the fishboat is confused... (Fishboats are easily confused.)

I wouldn't mind having this as a poster, I could easily see this being the cover on a book! your work is always so imaginative, with fluid composition and fun character design!

Thanks! =D I'm really tempted to do a variation of this as a fully-rendered painting (like I don't have a whole bunch of paintings I want to do already, haha...)

Psst, speaking of posters, it is available as a print! /sales pitch

All right, I want a boatfishboat now. The piece in general is also lovely. :aww:

It would be handy... but I have to wonder how one feeds a boatfish.

Oh gosh, this is epic. I especially love how you combine lines and lineless stuff - something I should try one day!

And eheheh, Victorian swimsuits. They will never be not amusing. Though considering how awkward I feel in my swimsuit - which resembles Wynne's a lot - I probably wouldn't mind a bit more coverage. Except then you feel the water less and I suppose it kinda kills half the fun so I dunno if it's worth it.

QueenGwenevere Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013
Thanks! Yeah, I've been experimenting with doing more painterly stuff in these because I really love painting (even the parts with lines have a looser coloring approach.) Combining lines and lineless lets me mess around with digital painting but takes way less time than doing a fully painted piece. Plus it's loads of fun! =D

(Heh, yeah, not a fan of revealing swimsuits myself, I prefer if they at least have a little skirt or shorts or something. Of course we could all just go back to "bathing machines" and hide inside little houses to sneak out into the water; those things are even more amusing than the swimsuits. :XD: )

You realy you tempt me to draw a picture with my Witch "sailing" on an iceberg and asking the queen for directions.

Does she even know how to sail or is she just standing there to look good?
Reply
:iconqueengwenevere:
QueenGwenevere Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013
Oh man, that would make an entertaining scenario... I somehow doubt she would get very reliable directions. :XD:

I think the boatfish is in charge of navigation. Her Majesty just gives the orders (whether they make any sense is debatable...)

As awesome as her Majesty's bathing suit is... as awesome as the fishboat is... I'm really loving those castles in the background! I wonder who lives in them!

...well whoever they are, they must be subjects of her Majesty!

Naturally they belong to her Majesty's domain! :dummy: And I'm CERTAIN the residents will be more than happy to entertain her with a fine luncheon should she chance to drop in. Surely. I mean, how could they object. I hope their larder is well stocked...
