Lavinia by AbigailLarson Lavinia by AbigailLarson
Lavinia, all dressed up.
There's a scene in the story where Hector takes Lavinia out for an evening to a nearby town, and she dolls herself up (well, more dolled up than usual).
I was trying to keep her unkempt carny style but still make it seem like she has attempting to look like a proper English lady at the same time... it never really works out for her though ^_~

This was made with graphite and watercolor.

I love your rigid, simply detailed way of drawing. How do you make the lines so rigid and un structured?

Well, I'm not really sure. I've always drawn like that! I just really love twisting disorder and chaos into looking pleasing to the eye. I don't break all the rules - there is still a little bit of reality to my scenes, but also a lot of imagination - which I think is why it can look structured and unstructured at the same time.

i enjoy the simplicity of your palette here. The weight of the lines, their movement and style do most of the work and its refreshing to see. Sometimes less is more and in this case it is true. You've certainly got a lovely style. Thank you for sharing it!

She reminds me of Angela Carter's "wife" from her revised Bluebeard tale: "The Bloody Chamber," in which she is given a choker of rubies to symbolize the family's escape from the French Revolution's guillotine.

Nice! ^^
