Eireann belongs to :devagathamacpie:
Companion piece (kind of) of

This drawing represents Eireann, the character of: devAgathamacpie :, who was incredibly fun to draw. However, here are my references for inspiration, as these are worth a look.
I searched for costume pieces from 14th to 17th century on the superb site of the Metropolitan Museum of New York, I also used the paintings of the Dutch Golden Age (it roughly corresponds to the 17th century, with some references before and after) and the sublime photography of Sacha Goldberger.

Now the story. I wanted to work with more northern influences (Eireann was in her youth a member of a court with a Spanish influence) by imagining that a greatly influent witch had to travel, and always in style, please. I took elements from several centuries and my usual Japanese style patterns to give an impressive stature to the character, perhaps less proud and mysterious than Meredith, but much more explosive!
I really like  what I did, but I regret not having fairly thick paper in hands when I began (only when I work with ink, 200g/m² is more than enough) because watercolor was pretty difficult to manage, especially in the character's face. (the scan you see here is a little too saturated but had been cleaned to remove my red ink spots and other mistakes : D)

Voilà pour toi Agatha, j'espère que ça sera une belle surprise pour lorsque tu rentreras de ton voyage ;). Je n'avais pas envie de venir les mains vides à Harajuku, ou du moins de venir avec un dessin un peu plus récent.

Edit : for those who know about Dragon Age Inquisition, don't you think she looks a bit like Josephine Montilyet ?! 
Faery by Miss-Friskies
Lied Peterson is my character
Black and blood red ink

A character I did not draw since a very long time, but which was very nice to sketch again. I wish I had more ink on hand, including yellow and purple, which are  her signature color, to give something a little more personal for the drawing. But never mind, it remains for me a nice little illustration. Simple, modest but still very faithful to this character which was one of the first I ever created !

Némée Peterson is my OC

This drawing is for a young lady, who had her first exam not long ago. She wanted a princess and I actually took a lot of freedom with this. For those who do not know, Nemée is a somewhat mysterious character who loves making problems and quarrels around her. In my story, she is a descendant of the Greek Sirens (let's say they shifted from birds-like creatures to fish-people) who tried to attract Ulysses. If she certainly does not know where her ancestors comes from (and if she has no fish attributes), her poisonous nature makes her a perfect character to write. And to draw (this is my favorite character for outfits screaming "I'm better than you": D)
If you look closely, you can easily see waves patterns, scales and even fishing net. But made from precious lace, please ;)
River of wine and sea of leaves by Miss-Friskies

Sybille de Montferrat belongs to Shinzhon
Black, blood red and yellow ink… Killer Queen- Queen

This drawing is a very large sized one (25 x 50 cm) that I made for a friend of my family who celebrates her birthday tomorrow. As I'm terribly in a rush, I got this done this very afternoon, making this drawing the largest one made in a such short time of my collection (this explains the lack of cleanliness). My ink also decided to freeze because of the heat (damn you summer !), which is one reason why my pen strokes are quite irregular. I was able to catch up with all that red and yellow Colorex, which are marvels to work with (especially with quills). I think I'll try to work more often with colorex (frankly it gives life to the drawing !) 

For the sotry, well I think that for once I did not thought too much about symbols. Our friend got a restaurant and as I saw a lot of vinage-looking posters for absinthe, champagne, wine (XIXth century, 1920s, 1950s..), and I thought it lacked a bit of Art Nouveau references. I thus used works by Alfons Mucha for Moet & Chandon (here:…). And who better to embody refined, elegant red wine  than Sybille ? So add a few swear words, mix in ink that is so thick I could have drawn this with grilled cheese, colorex : here we are. Not that bad, right ?
Plotting around tea by Miss-Friskies

Masha belongs to Lady-Oolong

It's been a long time that I had decided to draw the character of La Damothé and the opportunity came to me when someone asked me to draw a lady with a pretty dress and a hat. Just like that. To see what I could do. I accepted the challenge (which is not especially challenging). Masha is a character that I do not know well, but the design and the idea are absolutely amazing. Despite having abandoned the straw hat that is the signature of the Southern Belle, I have kept the overall aesthetics and crinolines of the period (with a late 1860s twist) to keep my ink not accurate but at least harmonious. I used the work of the artist Harry Clarke and Kay Nielsen as general inspiration for her pose (in part) and some decorative elements (mostly the trees). It really is a drawing that was done quickly and without much precision, but I had a lot of fun doing it. I find it lacks detail, but I didn't have so much time these days (including a wedding that has occupied my w-end)

NEW : Ici le premier texte du nanowrimo ! Bonne lecture :)

Vous pouvez voir mes cartes de Noël (en fait on dirait plutôt des marque-pages, pour le format !) sur mon tumblr avec le tag julefest . J'hésite à les poster ici, d'une part parce qu'ils sont nombreux (20 par jours) et parce que ce sont juste des dessins à l'encre.
(pour ceux qui n'ont pas l'adresse, c'est ici… )

Bonjour à tous ! 

Comme vous pouvez le remarquer, je suis un gramme plus active. Ceci dit, mon activité ces mois-ci va largement être mise à l'épreuve pour deux raisons.

1. Cadeaux de Noël, qui cette année consistent en : une série de cartes pour la fête de Noël de ma section à la fac, plus celles habituelles pour la famille, et enfin vous, chers amis. Rien ne vous dispense de me demander/dire ce qui vous plairait pour Noël, afin que j'évite la catastrophe de dernière minute. Donc faites vous plaisir, demandez.
(pour les cas particuliers aussi connues sous le nom de "maintenant je connais vos adresses respectives, tremblez mortels) : Chouquette, Damoté (LadyOolong), Camarade Gaufre (Mrs-Waffle), Sieskja, etc, n'hésitez pas à me faire part de vos envies de thés, bijoux divers, voire même bouquins/articles de papeterie si ça vous fait plaisir et que j'arrive à trouver ça dans les boutiques parisiennes)

2. Ici, la bonne nouvelle : NANOWRIMO. Aussi connu sous le nom de challenge créatif qui peut tuer un artiste sous la surcharge de travail, cette petite chose qu'est le nano est un défi d'écriture que je vais tenter de relever. Environ 1700 mots par jour qui seront publiés quotidiennement du 2 novembre au 1er décembre sur mon blog mort-vivant. (mais pour l'instant, surtout mort). Il s'agira d'un texte en 4 parties, une par semaine, sur des périodes de la vie de Svenja, avec des réflexions sur la foi, sur de l'amour gnangnan avec des apparitions en guest de personnages/parents de personnages dont j'ai déjà du vous parler ou mentionner.

Bref, ça va être sportif, prenant en compte également mon premier semestre de magie à la fac. Sur ce, je vous souhaite de prendre soin de vous, et que... Ben je sais pas, papillons-paillettes, évitez les grippes et tenez bon dans cette période un peu chargée !
