so this drawing is the begining of the courtship, or the talk about nothing and everything, or the slight blush on the cheeks, or the innocent 'hands touching'
but in a carriage LOL
i wanted a romantic/cute picture, very 18th century and, i'm sorry, but i'm proud of the result (my first idea was: "sexy time on the backseat of the carriage" but i was like "nooooooooooo... be romantic for once!")
lineart: [link] media: my hands, piece of paper, pencil and photoshop
next time i will draw something cute too: no more depressing drawings -well...for the moment-
Oh I am so pleased that you went from sweet and romantic...instead of smut although they are a very attractive couple and that's fun to see too. You impress me more and more with every image-your ability to draw such elaborate images, clothing designs that are so detailed and the way you color just stuns me! You really are a wonderful with lighting and know how to work your photoshop I think this image is very lovely, what a tender moment to capture and that stage of anticipation and sweetness is one of the most wonderful parts of a relationship and I'm glad to see a bit of it.
So am I to understand that you came upon the information of their marriage and have now fallen for the idea of their relationship to such a point that my deviations feed is full of Jefferson romantic art?
Because if that's true, well than I'm right happy it's what happened. Some beautiful, heart-wrenching work you've done, and I thank you for sharing it with us.
the long version: i watched very recently the mini-serie "John Adam" and it was AMAZING! but as the name says, it's about John Adams but there were a few great scenes with Thomas Jefferson. Being french, i knew absolutely nothing about American Revolution war... and i wanted to learn more about TJ. I read. And i found this amazing nd too short but heart breaking love story between Thomas and his Martha. Of course i knew he had a life after her death but i do believe that she was the love of his life. voilà... i hope i'm clear
-Deep breath- I really just love everything there is about this picture. I adore the coloring of the carriage, the darker tones of the seats and the curtains do not force the eye to neglect them perhaps because of the gold touches? But it shifts your attention to the hands. That was the first thing my stare settled on. The gentle touch which might even be on accident.. or not. You did so well on the coloring of the clothing, the small touches like the ring on her pinky finger, the way her skirt puffs up behind her and his freckles! -- I am just stunned. GREAT JOB!
Wow, you did the painting so fast! O: Such a cute beautiful picture <3 I love all the details. Those curtains, her dress, the pattern on his shirt *___* ... That ring on her finger... Everything is awesome X3 The colors really make this even ten times better *_* (When in was only lineart I didn't even realize they were in a carriage... ). I love how the light gets from both directions. and the colors are so nice and warm and sunny, the perfectly match this picture *~*
But just a note on carriage ride etiquette: usually single women are not suppose to sit on the same side of a carriage bench with a man unless that man is a family member. Though I'm not sure how much this applies to widows (even really young ones).
i like to see the colored result. I was first impressed: I hadn't seen that there would be no open view in the middle to the outside ... It became somehow dark.. but the longer I look at it, the more I like the contrast!! there's sth. bteween them, maybe sth that's not supposed to be? that should stay hidden ? ot still is hidden? that's how I interprete the dark ray in the middle that is separating the picture into two lightful, hopeful, young spirits. it's a perfect adaption!!
