Louis and Emily by suburbanbeatnik Louis and Emily by suburbanbeatnik
This was an art trade for :iconredpassion: that I promised her back in March. And... half a year later... it's done! Many apologies to Red for her patience with me, and how slow I've been. This drawing (done in Prismacolor colored pencils) features Louis XVI and her character Emily, in a Fragonard-esque composition.

Fantastic job here, especially with the colour! I love prismacolours,and this is a very fine example of how good they can look.
I like Louis in this. It's a very good likeness to the real man. :) Excellent stuff

I'm glad you like! However, I don't really think colored pencils are my specialty. Some people, like Yvonne Gilbert, are really amazing with them, but I find them kind of frustrating. After doing this, I said to myself, "Never again!" No matter how much I sharpened my pencils, I couldn't get the fine details I could with a brush, and after a point it seemed the colors just got waxy. I kept missing my titanium white... ;P

lol! Oh I know, they can definitely be frustrating.. especially when they keep breaking on me!
But despite the frustrations, I do think this is a great piece. Even if it was a pain in the ass. :P

Well, it does sound a little odd, but it's a very nice compliment! I was in fact going for that voyeuristic 'dangerous liasions' feeling. So, thank you very much. :D
