Reflection by Hito76 Reflection by Hito76
EN: This is a drawing that I almost finished two months ago. I finished it tonight.
Elise (OC of my story "Karelle") is a young woman pretentious but determined to make her life what she wants. However, she has a huge problem ... : Freckles, little breast (in her mind), straight hair and under her skirt, a big saddlebags!
But don't worry! After two hours of work every morning, it all disappears! ^^


EDIT: Let me explain something! :) My story takes place in seventeenth century. Women had to have ivory skin and curls! ;) The freckles were considered an eyesore, unfortunately ;)




FR: Voilà un dessin que j'avais quasiment fini il y a deux mois. Je l'ai terminé ce soir.
Elise (OC de mon histoire "Karelle") est une jeune femme prétentieuse mais determinée à faire de sa vie ce qu'elle veut. Elle a cependant un énorme problème... : des tâches de rousseurs, des trop p'tits seins, des cheveux raides et sous sa jupe, une sacrée culotte de cheval!
Mais ne vous inquiétez pas! Après deux heures de travail chaque matin, tout cela disparait! ^^


EDIT: Je tiens à expliquer une chose! :) A l'époque où mon histoire se déroule (fin XVIIème siècle) il fallait avoir une peau ivoire et des frisettes! ;) Les tâches de rousseur étaient considérées comme une horreur!, hélas! ;)

This is stunning. I love the composition and the lineart. And thanks a lot for sharing her story because that makes this piece even more interesting ^ _ ^.

One of my own characters "has" to whiten her skin, too, because she is a member of the aristocracy, but she was raised on a plantation in Barbados.


Elise is very beautiful--before and after. :D

Je ne connais pas le personnage...mais je dois dire que son caractère ainsi que les dessins me la font énormément aimé!
Je crains pourtant qu'a l'epoque les culotte de cheval c'était pour presque tout le monde dans la Haute Societe =p

J'ai pensé qu'il était "Through The Looking Glass", c'est le deuxième livre d'Alice au pays des merveilles. Mais l'image est encore très bon! - Traduit par Google.

I thought it was "Through The Looking Glass", it's the second book for Alice in Wonderland. But the picture is still really good!

Reallt beautiful! I love the story too ;)
I would've been a lot prettier in that age; now girls have to be orangy-tanned and
have straight blond hair... :( I have scottish blood so I'm never tan and curls.

Woohoo you didn't want to know that..

T'as bien fait de le terminer !!! Il est SU-BLIME ! Tout ton travail est génial en fait et franchement ne prend pas ça pour de la lèche. Vu le temps que je passe sur DA, je prendrais pas le temps d'écrire un comment que je pense pas du plus profond de moi.
Il parait que les meilleurs artistes sont torturés... ça semble vrai et c'est bien triste par contre.
DES BISES (même si c'est de loin... :s)

C'est dommage que à l'époque les taches de rousseurs étaient mal vu car c'est pourtant si jolie. J'adore le dessin, les deux femmes (qui en fait n'est qu'une) sont magnifique.

Taches de rousseur ou "éphélides" étaient en effet à proscrire...J'ai lu des revues du 19ème siècle et l'on conseillait aux jeunes filles de se baigner tous les soirs avec des lotions à base de citron pour faire disparaitre les indésirables....^^

très joli dessin ceci dit ^^

I really like this. The lines and palette are clean and fresh, and the excerpt of story encompassed within is well conveyed. The expression of exasperation on the freckled girl is something easily related too, and adds an endearing element of character to her.

Well done!

I think she's adorable (even with your edit comment) before she puts on all the make up and curls. But it's a really cute picture a before and after, a satisfaction with oneself.
