William of Ornshelm - Scottish Dandy
It's been said that the reason Scotsmen wear kilts is because sheep are afraid of the sound of a zipper. But putting that aside, William of Ornshelm wasn't like other scotsmen of the highlands. He had a bent for fashion that went -beyond- kilts. Some of his creations were downright wild! The men never could quite bring themselves to wear William's creations, but one or two of the women were bold enough to try.

Scottish Dandy eh. Hmm, have to see about this one
August 15th, 2006 #5
Hmm, brings to mind Tim Roth's character in the movie "Rob Roy" - But a lot more flamboyant. That was a dandy who could kick some a$$.
I don't think I'm up for this one - but I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

Chuck W: Good call on Tim Roth there I think. Me and my brother just discussed this subject and we both talked about Tim Roth in Rob Roy and said he was the best example of one we could think of right of the bat.

So how about a portrait? So just the head and a torso. Is that allowed or does it have to be a complete char?
August 15th, 2006 #11
It says that it has to be at least 3/4 of the character......meh.....you could probably get away with it

I hereby officially claim the phrase "Lord of the Nance!"
Here he is putting the "tart" in tartan:
Sir William of Ornshelm didn't quite work out as the tailor for the royal guard. Luckily for William, the Lady of Ornshelm rather took to the uniforms the kings men deemed too flashy for the battlefield and he spent the rest of his career establishing the Queen and her Ladies in Waiting as the most fashionable courtesans at any royal gathering.

Well, then I'm going to respond by saying that "tartan is the new black and plaid is the new neutral."
There's nothing in the description that says this character isnt modern, right? I want to make him a modern fashion designer type....

When William became tired of Scottish colors, he decided that Ireland was the new Scotland. He worried that the public would think Irish colors would make them less of Scotsmen, so in his marketing campaign he was shown standing proud over the Irish leprachaun.

Am I the only one who finds it funny that the sig right below oblio's entry says "history bits?"

William of Ornshelm takes traditional Scottish fashion to an 80's extreme with his New New Wave line for Spring. This Scottish dandy found his calling on the runways of Paris modelling occassionally for Jean Paul Gaultier in his Madonna-dressing, Vogue days. Now in his 40's, William insists his designs are meant to cross the boundaries of gender and age. This paper-doll advert was a big splash in British Vogue this month. What will Willie think of next?

Sorry guys, I'm out for this one, slap me.
I don't have enough time and to be honest, I really don't like the subject at all :/

Then again, we went round and round with this when Metrosexual Pirate was the topic.

"Some of his creations were downright wild! The men never could quite bring themselves to wear William's creations, but one or two of the women were bold enough to try."
I think this part of the description is what prompted a lot of us to go with high heels. Something that most dudes wouldnt wear that the ladies would.
And I just like saying the word coulats.

i`m out. damn it.
the more i work on it, the worse it gets.
i get so sick and tired of my OWN doings, recently. nevermind.
you know what?
here`s a god damn final:
(in a VERY heavy Scottish accent)
men alive this vacation is great!
this is me on top of the "Sheppard`s Buttock" higeland mountain, watching over loch-ness lake.
strangly enough, there`s no wind at all up here, and everything looks REAL flat and silly and cartoon-like and boring, which really bothers me for some reason.
but i do look smashing, if you don`t mind me saying so, lassie.
the photo was taken by Spencer Mcleary, who`s a friend of mine which i am not attracted to whatsoever,
i do not dream of him at nights, and i never Undressed him with my eyes while drooling.
i`ll be back to the studio in a week or so, hold down the fort for me, Binnie.
and please tell Misses Ogilvy her dress will be ready for her as soon as she`ll manage to fit INTO IT.
well, all the best
William of Ornshelm, haute couture."

William of Ornshelm was indeed the king of fashion. His idea was that it was more important to look good then to feel good. His styles were intricate in detail and his colors where subtle unlike the deeper and darker traditional scottish colors.

migsta - very cool design and character. i like it. it feels a bit unfinished , though. maybe some more work on the details and colors might push this puppy up a notch.
August 20th, 2006 #29
You're right Chuck, I had an idea and had to throw a quickie out there...If i have some more time i'll tighten it up. Thanks!

William was always teased as a child for being "unique". He didn't wrestle with the other boys. Instead, he combed the sheep and mended his own clothes. He also refused to eat anything to do with animals. Being a master huntsman, his father did not take kindly to this and thus disowned poor William from the clan. William was left to wander the world alone. In his travels, he came across new fashion styles and new materials. Years later, William returns to Ornshelm in a very "unique" manner....
i'm looking at everyone elses...and then i'm looking at mine, and I'm wondering if i'm doing something wrong? hehe. what is everyone using to colour? i've been using Photoshop CS for quite sometime, applying new techniques i've learned from the internet and yet I don't seem to be improving much. It takes me so long to colour as well. I'm not sure why...
anyways. this is as complete as i can do it, without my brain exploding
