a Grand Gala by sweet-suzume a Grand Gala by sweet-suzume
Finally wound up coloring this more or less to my liking after a few tries. :)
I tried to stick to the same general brightness and color scheme as the original.  ...there's still room for a title up there...!
After Edward Ardizzone’s menu cover for the Overton St. James’s.

Holy cow, this is lovely! I can almost hear the sounds, almost see the movement. You have such a beautiful, sweet style. :love:

Thank you so much!  Having written about all these characters for years, I definitely feel that I 'know' them and can imagine their mannerisms and what they'd be chattering on about.
I really love to draw this sort of scene, but in this case, a lot of credit for the composition and what-not has to go to the artist whose work I referenced.

I love it when you do shots like these in your drawings!!! I don't think I can do something like this..? I gotta learn from you! It shows everyone in the scene and the way you do these kinds of shots are so adorable... so much interaction, I can "feel" like I'm watching them from above on the balcony as they eat their fancy dinner!!!

I love to draw this kind of thing too!  I think, for me, that a scene with a group of characters interacting has a lot of 'story' in it is a big part of the appeal.  I 'know' all of these people and enjoy taking a peek into their habits and relationships this way.

...but, alas, I have a pretty tough time coming up with ideas like this on my own- how many characters should I include?  what should they be doing?- and I don't have a more patient artist's willingness to do much plotting a scene out beforehand. ^^;  So a lot of credit has to go to the artist whose work I based this on, ha ha.  Most of my favorite pieces among my own art have been built on the foundation of someone else's art I liked and copied some element of.

Love the color choices. :D The soft limited tones really make it feel of that era!
