Edwardian era was a time in the UK, between 1901 and 1910 generally and during the rule of King Edward VII.
This was intended to be a style study I want to do but I decided I want to do a more interesting pose, so this became just a simple fashion sketch.
It's of Dai and Hazel, during working on it, I started to think of an AU in this time period, where it's mostly the same as their actual timeline, where they are very close friends and stuff, but in the AU they would eventually get married together, it's a marriage of convenience, where Hazel has had way too many bad experiences with men and would rather just focus on her job of being a doctor and Dai being ace (although it wasn't known at that time) and given Hazel's position, that it would leave him able to work in peace and comfort (he is a Zoologist and naturalist), they also have a large house together with lots of land, so Dai can just have his dogs and be with nature and wildlife. They have a good system going on between them, they've basically married they're best friend XD I could happily talk about them all day XD
I'm not sure how Dai would have gotten to the UK but he's there so lets just leave it at that. There were no laws in Britain about interracial marriages, as by this point there were quite a few - they weren't too common, but it wouldn't be completely unheard of. He would experience racism, but for some reason people keep thinking he's Indian, because he told them he's not African, nobody had any real idea what Aboriginal Australians were at the time and that his features aren't African and are closer to that of Indians and Dai just smiles and nods as he's given up trying to explain. Dai mainly keeps to himself in the house - Hazel just tells people (especially those who don't know his race) that her husband is shy.
It's a very sweet relationship and set up they have and live out the rest of their lives like that (with the small blip of the first world war- I wasn't going to talk about that part but I have a habit of waffling about historical things and that I like trying to make it accurate so here goes to the hell of WWI - They would both have to go to war - Dai due to conscription and Hazel because she is a doctor - but she'd probably have to be a nurse :I Dai could be a spy or special agent due to his intelligence and language skills but I'm not sure how likely it would be due to racism, but he would be a hard worker and a good leader so he would up the ranks - but he's peaceful and kindhearted soul and everything that went on in the great war would have disturbed him greatly. They both survive the horror and neither of them talk about it afterwards.)
I think Dai looks quite dapper but he hates it XD I don't know which era he dislikes more XD (1920's Dai). I don't think I've drawn Hazel's outfit properly, because I think that the fashion should suit her but I haven't done it right or something . .
Accuracy of anything (outside of my OC's) in this post is debatable but hay I try :D :D
Okay I'm going to go now, I've gone on long enough as it is - sorry for my long rambling but I hope you all like it :D
This for the contest and the drawing is basically a re-draw of an old drawing but with a fantasy element of a mermaid to it and make it fit into with the theme.
"Two of a kind"
'We're two of a kind, you and I, we cause damage everywhere we go and hurt everyone who comes into contact with us'
No longer topless, because I wanted it look like he's a shipwrecked sailor, but I might change that, and make him topless or at least in a wetsuit to make it modern and more fitting to Llew and have him like been attacked or dragged off his surfboard. Also, I'm not sure with his expression and body language, a part of me thinks it should be more expressive and trying to fight off, and the other likes this look of being resigned to his fate. Also I might shift them together more to make it look like the Mermaid whispering into Llew's ear.
and now a kinda-ish related doodle
The return of Mer!Lovell :D :D Bless him :) ^^; His big soft heart is in the right place.
Also, someone please stop me from drawing these two together - I just want to draw them having little adventures and Llew - I LOVE him, but I torment him so so much and he deserves be happy and just have someone like Lovell in general somewhere in his life . . . .
anyway back to work ^^;
Who's heard the Moana soundtrack? I have and I love it! I've been excited about this movie for nearly two years ^^; and I have been listening to nothing but the soundtrack all day (Dwayne Johnson sounds really good btw!) and wanted to draw the reaction of Mia, Andre and Lotty;
Because Andre and Lotty are both Polynesian and so fit with the movie - Andre wouldn't usually be that excited but it's about his culture and his sister gets a Disney princess that looks like her and is happy about that and Mia, although Aboriginal Australian and not Polynesian, she feels that this is the closest she'll ever get to a princess like her, closest she ever got was Tiana.
Yeah Mia is really excited - Dai bought her the album and tickets for her to go and see it - he might quickly regret that XD Yeah, he wont sing it out loud publicly, much to Mia's dismay but he will definently sing it to her when she needs cheering up :)
I feel that I have more to say but I can't remember at the moment ^^;
(that's not a good sign)
A gift I've had sitting in my files for a long while now, a thank you gift for Keba for the cute drawing of Jessie I got a long time ago.
Used clip studio paint to colour this chibi instead of SAI like I usually do, it's okay, but I prefer the results in SAI for chibs.
Jon belongs to Keba Si Rota
Art belongs to me
I really hope you like it Keba :D
This is a page tester for a little mini comic- Inspired by this illustration - I like how it's turned out in general but I'm not entirely sure of it. I think I might re-draw it and try and make it simpler, and maybe experiment more before starting the other pages.
Feedback and opinions are really welcomed :D
Art and character belong to me
