Elizabeth Woodville by suburbanbeatnik Elizabeth Woodville by suburbanbeatnik
This is the companion piece to the Richard portrait; it features the controversial wife of Edward IV. (Fortunately, my friend wasn't too fussy about the to-do list scribbled in the margins.)

Despite being a Ricardian, I do quite like this lady. In a way, you have to admire her ambition and determination.

 I've seen it suggested that Her Grace is signing off on the confiscation of some enemy's property, but I really would like to imagine that she is sending a letter to Ms. Philippa Gregory (how? by TARDIS of course!), although what kind of letter it may be I leave to the individual imagination (for the record I imagine that she's thanking Ms. Gregory for the extra publicity).;) (Wink) 

 Please allow me to compliment you for the style with which you have drawn up this likeness; well done!:) (Smile)

Thanks! I've heard that the White Queen is probably one of the least objectionable of Gregory's books. (I'm not really a fan.)

Ha ha, who are the guys in the background? George and Richard looking glum perchance? Whoever they are, I bet they hate the sight of a Woodville! XD

This is a gorgeous piece by the way (as always!) :)

This is a very good drawing of Elizabeth Woodville! I like all the details on her dress. The expression you've drawn fits her perfectly I think.

I love that you have this very recognizable, personal style. Very original and lovely all of your work. this piece in particular struck me, partialy I think, because I love sketchy work and mostly because No One seems to depict people in this era. I don't know why...the clothes are fun. There's something slightly mischevious about her mouth, makes me wonder what's on that parchment....

Thank you! I think Elizabeth is probably confiscating some property belonging to an enemy, and giving it to one of her Woodville relatives. (Lizzie was quite a Becky Sharp-esque social climber... most Ricardians hate her, as she was considered to be the archenemy of Richard.) I've been on a Plantagenet kick lately, because I seem to know everything about the Stuarts and I'm bored with the Tudors. Are you going to do some 15th century people of your own? I'd love to see! :D

I really admire your work as well. You're quite a fine draughtsman (draughtsperson? draughtswoman?)... And I love your signature. Vionnet's clothes were soooo beautiful!

Thank you for the compliments **joins mutual adoration society** I'm planning to actually produce more now that school is out for the summer and my thesis is completed, I'm trying to work on my ability to convey emotion (something you excell at). We shall see what comes of it.

I adore Vionnet...how was it that everyone was doing these boxy straight-cut things and she was just like "y'now, I think I'm going to turn that fabric catywampus, say to hell with patterns, and drape on a dress form!" ...only, you know, in french. If you haven't already you should check out the Chronical Books 'Madeline Vionnet, it starts with a biography and then moves through her designing life with awesome pictures and patterns to accompany.

Yay... I'm looking forward to more of your stuff! (I especially love your mid 17th century doublet, even though you say it's not your period.) You have such a fine drawing style- I bet you could draw anything you put your mind to. :)

I first heard about Vionnet from a Kyoto costume institute book- I loved the dresses I saw in that book, because I adore 1930s fashion and anything bias cut. And she's the one who invented it! :love: I should check out that book you mentioned... even though the patterns won't be any use to me, since I can barely sew a button...

Great how you captured the features the same way the Flemish primiteves did. It makes the drawing look like it is really coming from the 15th century! And the sketches and notes don't bother me at all, da Vinci did that sort of things all the time.

Beautiful detail. Stunning. But you could clean up the smudges a little bit and I think it would nice if you colored it in. :)
