"I wish to work a miracle." by Pirateswoop "I wish to work a miracle." by Pirateswoop
EDIT: Added Leonardo's little flying-machine model.

One of Leonardo da Vinci's most endearing quotes - I'm certain Feliciano felt the sentiment when his beloved Master of the Arts passed on.

Yes, I ship it. c:

I decided not to draw Italy's curl since his hair would have been pretty long during this time period. It looked out-of-place.
This looks so much better irl, gdi scanner.

Sorry it took me so long to comment on this, but I wanted to say that it was very, very good. I like your usage of coloured pencils (a medium I never got the hang of) and that you used colours that go so well with the original moleskine paper (moleskine high-five!).

Also I like that you know renaissance clothes. :meow: And the flying machine. And the flowers. And the quote, fff. I like this picture in general.

Oh, thank you! >w< Admittedly, it's been a while since I did anything with colored pencils since I'm dreadfully boring with them and don't quite know how to blend colors yet, BUT I'm workin' on it, haha.

My fashion history class has opened my eyes to a world of awesome clothes. Now I want to draw everything with period garments. Ahhh history~

I'd say you're better at it than you think you are! Besides, the only way to get better is practice hardcore. That's why I hated art school, though, personally. I don't like drawing the same things over and over again, especially when they wanted me to make it abstract and ~modern~.

Oh god I would love to take a fashion history class. I had so much fun with art history, I can't imagine fashion history hnnngh. What's the curriculum like, if you don't mind me asking?

Ps: I'm going to finish my kiriban and then get to work on your trade. :meow: Hopefully it'll be up tonight!

God, I hated art classes. It's why I switched my major to historic preservation. I couldn't deal with the "draw this over and over even though you don't like it and would much rather prefer to draw something else". I...hate strongly dislike modern art, for the mostpart. <3<

It's...amazing, basically. We started with the Greeks and we're going all the way up to 1930, mostly because after that fashion gets even more complicated when it's modern. But it's very in-depth, and very detail-oriented, and I'm enjoying it tremendously. Although now I feel pedantic when I see clothes in historic movies that aren't historic. Damn my brain for being educated. xD

PS: Eeee oh my goodness I'm so excited. >w< Starting on yours tonight too ffff

I hate modern art too, so don't worry. XD After we hit around 1900, my interest begins to fade, besides John Singer-Sargent, and JC Leyendecker. They were the last two greats, in my opinion.

Oh my god, that sounds so exciting! Greek fashion is one of my favourites, especially Hellenistic Greece. I learned how to draw it mostly through observation and I'm certain I'm not always right in how I do it, especially when I draw their pantheon, but they were mostly naked anyway.

Never damn your brain for being educated!! It's better to be educated than not to be, even if you notice more historical inaccuracies now. XD Also, pardon my curiosity, but what does a historical preservation major entail? When you graduate, are you going to be restoring landmarks, or paintings, or things like that? If I'm correct, that sounds really awesome.

PS: I am so ridiculously excited. I hope you like the kiriban request I got, btw. It's La Fayette in a dress.

I agree entirely. Augh, Leyendecker! His lines make me swoon.

I can scan some of my book and notes and send you some of the stuff on Greek clothing, if you want. xD It's all very delightful.

I LOVE HAVING SMARTNESS. Historic preservation, in this case, entails restoration/conservation/preservation of historical buildings and architecture, though I'm doing a concentration in historic garments...whether or not that's restoration or reconstruction I'm not sure, but either way I AM EXCITED.
