Marie-A


I've just finished Lady Antonia's book of the doomed princess-cum-Queen(very very good), but haven't seen the film. I think I'll go this weekend. Anyone else seen it? I'm an afficionado of costuming and period clothing(and, well, plain old periods of history--pretty much all of them)so I feel certain that at least will entertain me.

crinoline, corsets, caraco jackets, bodices, bustles, OH MY! I'm sure Sophia Coppolas new film should feed our appetite for period clothing which I too am quite fond of. Nice drawing by the way, I like the coiffure!

Thanks, kitten(s)! As of this writing I *still* haven't made it to the theater, but damn, those panniers can't wait!
If you go, let me know what you think.

mackay, parry, david: thanks a million! This is a very fast sketch indeed. If I hate the way one comes out--*delete*. ; ) Better than tearing out sketchbook pages(a definite no-no, of course)...

Lovely drawings!

crylic said...

great stuff as usual, love your lines, do you use alias sketchbook to draw?

sean said...

very interesting stuff. very loose. do you do any abstract distortions at all?

Jenny said...

Crylic: Thanks! No, don't have Alias-this is all Photoshop CS. : )

Sean: thanks too! "Abstract distortions"?...do you mean doing something to the drawing, or drawing abstractly? I just scribble away directly onto the screen(a Wacom Cintiq tablet). Generally I don't edit these things, just crop them and resize them so they're not too huge. ; )
I don't use any filter effects or anything like that, just two brushes. But perhaps I am misunderstanding your question--what did you mean? I'm curious!

Can't wait for Sophia Coppola's version of this story ... As always, love your drawings!
