Enjolras guidant les miserable



Full title: "Enjolras guidant les miserables" or, "Enjolras Leading the Wretched"
Yeah, a take on Eugene Delacroix's "La liberte guidant le peuple" ([link]).

My (late) Barricade Day picture.
I was 75% finished with this when I discovered that both spirit-lily and EntirelyInsane had made pieces featuring Enjolras leading the people...great minds think alike!

Slight overpaint (oversketch is more accurate), just to get the layout and some positioning accurate.

Some issues: Enjolras' leg, Javert's night stick, Thenardier's coloring (seriously, he looks like Gollum), Marius' hair blends in with the barricade.

Things I like: the faces, the colors, the epic, epicly epicness of it all.

So, yes, the figures: Javert, Jean Valjean, Enjolras, Gavroche, Thenardier, Marius, Grantaire, and Eponine. Plus the Bishop hidden in the background with a couple of students. I couldn't figure out a place for Cosette or Fantine, as I wanted to include them as well.

Took me ages, probably close to 20 hours.

Please do not use without my permission.
Les Miserables belongs to Victor Hugo
