    ChoW #208 :: Marie Antoinette



    ROUND #208:: Marie Antoinette


    DESCRIPTION


    Marie Antoinette



    Marie Antoinette was the famous and extravagant French queen, almost a fashion icon in her own time. She lived a life of extreme wealth outside of Paris in Versailles, which was like a golden cage to her. During her reign the people of France were suffering, she met her sad fate at the guillotine during the French revolution.

    Design Marie Antoinette!

    - Marie Antoinette was very fashionable, and wore many beautiful dresses. Go wild in your design!
    - Stick to the historical setting.
    - In her life she has seen both extreme wealth as imprisonment and execution. It is up to you how you want to portray her.

    Lots of information and pictures:

    Good Luck!

    here is my first idea because i want to make it holding her head i will make a canvas around the picture cause otherwise it will look like a zombie and not like a historic figure.

    Here's two sketches thats im thinking on, im leaning more towards the standing upright marie, with the hands trying to grab her and the guillotine blade in the back, that one is definitley more illustrative i think.

    but of course I would love any input on what people like or think needs to be changed!


    and JanJager, very very very nice start, ridiculously fast and good.

    Just some sketches; I'm working out a pose for her. It's going to be a busy week for me, but I'm aiming to have two versions of the queen, one pre and one post dethroning. I'll at least get the pre-dethroning done. I'm going for the spoiled and impatient interpretation of her character.

    Edit: And here's my pre-dethroning pose. Any comments/crit appreciated.

    It was interesting reading about Marie Antoinette. In the spirit of her cloistered, very formal and restrictive life as royalty, I'm portraying her as a fine jewelled porcelain automaton, or "Fancy Robot". Here's an early pose. Having trouble deciding what she's doing with her hand.

    JanJager: The hair scaffolding idea is very cute.

    Ooooooooo! I've always just adored CHOW from afar, but I couldn't resist this one, pretty hair, ridiculous dresses and cake were just too hard to resist haha.

    Just a sketch so far....I don't do too well with digital painting so this will be a big learning curve. Please be gentle......

    Nice work everybody!

    I'm not too sure about my sketches, do we actually have to do full body poses? If so i def cant do the right-hand idea!
