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!

Thank you! Say, would you be interested in coloring this too? I'd be very interested in seeing your version too, along with what :iconwisdoms-pearl07: does.

OMG jinx- LOL! Anyway, yes, I'd love to see a color and inking. Throw in a background too, if you like- you do such great work! :D

PS. I've enabled the download option so you and Pearl can download it- thanks! I'm so looking forward to seeing what you guys do.

The Hanoverians were like the obnoxious immigrant family that's always fighting in restaurants. Hard to believe they were royal, because most of them didn't really have any class- but they are certainly quite amusing to read about!

Thank you! I spent a while trying to figure out what Amelia's skirt should look like- I shudder to think what color it would be, if I actually painted it. ;P

I figured you'd like the drawing- that's why I asked my collaborator on the project if it was okay if I posted this. Yay for mantuas! :D

The detail on this piece is absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe you drew all those small lines! My attention span is much too short to do something as such, so I commend you for it! ^^
