Julia Verrucia by suburbanbeatnik Julia Verrucia by suburbanbeatnik
This is Julia Verrucia, the heroine from a novel set in first century Rome that I wrote in high school. I've drawn her a lot, but this time I spent more time on folds and drape of the tunic, which definitely has something of a a "come hither" look to it. (Personally, I always get annoyed when people put Greek or Roman women in fitted dresses with décolleté; sexiness wasn't approached that way back then. Filmy- often gauzy- fabrics were used to reveal the body, not immense amounts of cleavage.)

Thank you! :) I'm so used to drawing corsets and fitted clothes, it was a good challenge to make myself do the classical thing and draw the draped figure.
