    I'm not sure if I'm going to get this done in time for the due date, but I figured I'd do it for fun anyway. I shuffled through some poses/roughs--I wanted my version of Marie Antoinette to be more playful/frivolous, and I knew I wanted to do something with her gambling problem. Decided not to have her reclining though. With the way I wanted her to be leaning it would have been murder to paint the fabric. I realize I need to fix her arms before I go any further on my WIP at the bottom but I think I almost have the pose I want her in for the final.

    saw this yesterday and had to draw something. marie younger and older when in power i guess? started with the first and showed mom who told me that she hadda have huge poofy dress and hair =P so there's the result of the second.
    doubt i'll finish in time, but if i do, i'm going to go with the first one.

    Angelsway257: Love the detail on the face, you just reminded me that I wanted to do a more detailed face too.

    Sarch: I kind of still like the first one, that was the idea I was going towards in my drawing but I couldn't get the perspective right so I turned the table into a tree . . . yeah.

    Wanted to post the line art with the color because I felt bad about loosing so much detail when I colored it.

    mairuku - not being "there" yet I can only say that I feel like the figure's solid enough; the real distraction is the composition. Try moving your character over so that it's just left of the middle, instead of getting cut-off. I love the light from the window, the mirror, etc. but there's a lot of real estate not being used effectively here.

    Now here's my mess!

    OK this feels better.
    the values are still wonky but it feels more interesting / better composition than the last??? i hope..
    wondering if I should put a cake on her bed too? haha

    mastertrogdolyte - Thank you so so much for your input, I figured the composition was god awful...hence why I restarted. WHAT A MESS IT WAS!! Too much weird negative space and it was off-balance and cut off like you said. thanks!

    Attachment 1033714

    DISCO!

    OK, here's my first pass blocking in big costume shapes. More tightening, designing, rendering, color adjusting to come with the next pass.

    I'm going with a Disco Antoinette here. Looking to push spacey haute couture, while still keeping Marie recognizably herself.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Ok..so here's some WIP....

    I originally had her in the blue dress, but then noticed everyone else had put her in blue as well. I think there's a reason for that, it seems to work better, what do you think?

    CHOW#208

    Entering in my first CHOW! Hopefully I don't embarrass myself too much!

    Since it's Marie Antoinette, I figure she should be holding cake right? I went with an less attractive take on M.A. I'm starting to get into all the ridiculous doily and bow stuff.

    *Edit-I totally re-painted the most of the details on her dress and changed the color of it to something more saturated. I'm really interested to see how everyone handles the details on her dress.*

    Oops, I think I posted too late for the final burning. What a shame.
    Well, here's the final version.

    I was advised in another thread to integrate my characters into the background better, but I'm stymied when it comes to standalone characters like this. Other than the tones being warmer for royal Marie and cooler for pre-execution Marie, I didn't really have a specific plan for the background. I'm wondering if they look too slapped on now.

    Attachment 1033930

    And here's a doodle, just for fun. I was testing different expressions/poses for her last night and decided to take this one a little further and slap together a fake magazine cover in InDesign. Ignore the terrible typography.

    delightful_piffle: Your Marie is so pretty! I actually think I like the tree better than a table with your design. The organic shape just seems to go better with it I guess.

    zepheena, the yellow dress looks nice. The blue pops out better against the tablecloth in your wip though.

    I'm kind of intimidated by the Maries coming along, I'm not even going to lie. That said, I made progress on my Marie. I think I'm going to try to push the values in her skintone more because I feel like that is because lost right now. Also tried trial runs for lace/ruffled material on her dress on her collar and torso. If anyone has any crit, please feel free to give it.

    I love this chow! I've added detail and also drawn more of her person in. I've never painted with grayscale before so this is all new to me, but shortly I will be adding colour

    Mairuku yours is wonderful, loving the tits ^_^, but the composition makes me feel a little chlostrophobic. How would it look if the canvas was a little higher and less wide?

    The folds in the dress are giving me fits.

    Senira I love the sun in her headdress - her husband was the sun king after all. Is there symbolic significance to the moon, also? (other than that the moon is traditionally a symbol for women?) Oh, and yes - she is flipping us the royal bird.
    delightful_piffle I love the red choker - it is a neat little piece of visual foreshadowing.
