innocent touch by nami64 innocent touch by nami64
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-

Are they characters from a book? And, if so, what book?

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 :nod: 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.
nami64 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
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 :)

Thank you very much for the explanation. Very, very sweet. Aaaand now I'll need to look into the mini-series :D
rubyrouge649 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

-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!

SANU-CHAN Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
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 *~*
nami64 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012
i really enjoyed drawing all these tiny details (but adding colors was so difficult UGH!)
SANU-CHAN Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You keep saying it's difficult, but you do it so fast -.- (I color my stuff so much slower! And my coloring is so much simpler XD) I love the shadings you do when you color.
AlterEgox5 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
All right, you have officially been romantic....anytime you feel like doing sexy time on the backseat of a carriage is excellent. :XD:

I love how it's Martha's hand on Thomas', like she initiated it. She looks pretty pleased with herself :)

Innocent touch... soon to be INNOCENT RAAYYYPE!!! HyarHyarHyar!! lol

I really like how it turned out! so cute :]

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).
nami64 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012
oh interesting, i didn't know that :) thanks
Sedna-Chan Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Retourne au Ariadne/Arthur, haha !

Très beau néanmoins comme tous tes dessins, je suis juste fan <3
FollowedMyHeart Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
This is so romantic and so true to that day and age :) Even when Lizzie and Darcy touch hands it's like AHHHHHHHH!!! I love your coloring so much and the simple yet beautiful details :)
nackmu Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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!! :love:
sabroder Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You have a very beautiful, unique style. This picture is great! Reminds me of all the Jane Austen I read, or of The Moonstone, because I just finished that one a couple weeks ago
