Princesses by suburbanbeatnik Princesses by suburbanbeatnik
Everything's better with princesses! Except probably not with these three. Here's the eldest daughters of George II- Anne, Amelia and Caroline (called Caro). They're the sisters of Prince Frederick, and will be in the 1729-1730 London project (mentioned here- [link] ).

Anne, on the left, was the eldest girl, the Princess Royal, and she was incredibly imperious and haughty and something of a bluestocking. Amelia, in the center, was a character- she liked over-the-top colors, and once ordered a dress of orange velvet and purple ribbons. She was backstabbing, gossipy and uber-bitchy, and even though she was technically supposed to be a nice unmarried virgin, she would disappear for days at a time with her married aristocratic lover (when they were supposed to be "hunting"). Caro on the left was a timid girl who was always trying to please everyone. As different as they all were, though, they all hated Frederick, and he wasn't too fond of them either!

It looks like a promo for some sort of 18th century "Mean Girls." XDDDD

Your knowledge of period dresses is displayed well through this piece. I love your sketching style as well. Looking closely this fairly sketchy, however it still has the feel of a fully completed piece because your composition is so wonderful. Definitely a pleasant picture to look at. <3

Don't forget Caro is a brunette, and Anne and Amelia are blonds. Anne is both wearing a lace cap and a veil on her hair- like the ladies in this picture- [link] - and Caro is just wearing a cap. Hope that helps, and I hope you have fun! :)

Oh good! Glad I caught you in time. Here's another reference pic. It has the three sisters:

Caro's in blue playing the guitar, Anne's in white on the harpsichord, and Amelia is on the right looking bored. :D

My favourite is the one in the middle. I like her dress the most. You know me, I'm such a sucker for tiny little details. haha

Thanks! Have you thought of drawing some early 18th century characters? I'd love to see it!

Oh I've thought of drawing so many things and so many fashion styles I don't know if I'll ever have the time to actually do so. haha
I'm still working on that early 17th dress though, but the first one I had to get rid of since it looked absolutely awful. >_o

So many ideas, and so little time... I definitely know the feeling. That's really cool that you're working on an early 17th century dress though. :)

Yes it's unfortunate. But I draw as much as I possibly can, and lately I seem to have improved a little bit. That always feels rewarding.

That's great. I'm actually working on all this George Boleyn stuff because I haven't painted anything since December. Quelle horreur!

i love it :)

I've recently started reading about Queen Victoria, and it's facinating. I know some people think she's a bit dull, and for a little while she is, but when you look at her past, it's like, well duh..
Anyway, back to these. I love the detail of the dresses!!!

Yes, Victoria's bourgeois personality is totally understandable when you see what an absurd circus her family was like. The Prince Regent and his brothers were so awful and narcissitic, they make George II and his family look bearable.

Speaking of which, have you seen the trailer for "The Young Victoria"? It looks amazing!

No I haven't. I'll have to go search you-tube for it!

I know. They didn't even train her to become queen, they gave her music lessons and drawing lessons. If it weren't for Lord Melbourne she would have been an aweful Queen.

She was pretty lucky. Things could have ended pretty disastrously for her, like Isabella II of Spain.

Have you seen the trailer yet? [link] It looks so gorgeous!

DarthMalice66 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. If it weren't for Melbourne she would have been in big trouble. However I think she became a little over-dependent on him towards the end. I mean she threw such a fit when he left that he came back for another short stint.
Same with Albert, so much so that it actually made him ill towards the mid 1850's.

I know. I'm only in the middle of the books, so I'm not sure exactly what happens next. Of course it doesn't help that her nefew was Keizer Wilhelm II of Germany. Talk about your problem children, lol
