Marie

I was looking at pictures of Marie Antoinette online and found the elaborate hairstyles really interesting. Even if it was a wig, it must’ve taken forever to style every day. I really don’t have the patience to do fancy hairstyles, personally, but they are really fun to draw. I really enjoy using the Calligraphic Pen mode in Illustrator, combined with the “Pressure” setting. It makes the pen strokes really flowy and natural.

 

It’s been pointed out to me that I have an obsession with the colour trio of teal, salmon, and yellow. Guilty as charged! I haven’t seen the Kirsten Dunst “Marie Antoinette” movie, but the photos I’ve seen from the film have a lot of pastel tones, hence the lavender hair here.

 

Somehow, this picture makes me think of a chocolate box :D
