I have been COMPLETELY swamped with midterms recently, not to mention law school applications. Bah, busy busy busy. -_-;; And what time I have had has been because I have been ambushed by an unexpected social life, which confuses me greatly.

However, I just finished my 3 hours midterm today - my hand still aches - and as a result, I've been inspired to create silly things.

The first is for [livejournal.com profile] maelicia, and is Robespierre, Saint-Just, and Couthon done as Hello Kitty characters. I was informed it was cute and also that I have completely failed at getting the characters right, so whatever. Here )

The second one is just for my amusement and probably to my everlasting guilt as a good French Revolution fan, but the sad thing is, it just works too well!

In short, I have rewritten the Disney song "Be Prepared" (because you KNOW villains get all the good songs, and I was listening to it anyway) into a French Revolution song. Featuring Danton and a couple of random sans-culottes. It's actually singable! And I only had to change a few lyrics!

Song )

But that's because I'm a geek.

Also, Arcane? Am working on those ponies, if you still want them.

[livejournal.com profile] joisana gave me the keyword "tarts" to do a picture of Grantaire with.

Two things came from that. Neither of which are colored yet, both may be - the second DEFINITELY will - but I figured I ought to put it up already, as it's been sitting at my desk for a day or two already.

The two pictures can be described as 1, "what happens when you give the prompt 'tarts' to a rabid Alice in Wonderland fan" and 2, "what happens when a fan of Les Mis and of pastries starts thinking about the two in combination".

Hallo, all! I finally finished the picture that's been driving me up the wall - it's not perfect and I'm still not 100% happy with it, but at this point I think there's not much I can do with it. I'll do better next time, though. ^^;

It's not a particularly COMPLICATED scene, mind you, just annoying. And that background...! It's much more complex than it looks. >_>

Hope everyone likes it! Robespierre/Saint-Just as usual, in case anyone had any doubts.

And yes, the song title is almost entirely unrelated; I just felt like being silly. ^^

Forgive the bad photoshopping, I didn't feel like editing it.



Everyone feel better about your day. ^_^

I made an icon for [livejournal.com profile] krkornblum87, which she requested especially. ^^ I'm rather proud of it, though, as it's so completely out of what I normally draw; so I figured I'd post it here to boast - but as it's hers, no one is allow to steal it. Ask her. ^^;



^_^ Thoughts, anyone?
backupmemories: (Default)
Um. So. Yes. These take literally five minutes to do, so I did actually do a few more. More ideas are welcome! Also, ideas for 'scenes' - I already have Marat's stabbing and such, but I'm looking for more iconic scenes to draw in a strange sort of mural-type picture of various, um, zoomorphic revolutionaries. Maybe. ^^;

Also, I couldn't pick between the Camille pictures. There are three in the picture below. Please help me pick which one works best!

Also, I misspelled Charlotte, sorry. -_-;;

And here I apologise again... )

Again...more suggestions? Anyone? Bueller? : D?

Yes, yet another joke on Thermidorian propaganda. I promise to post the other two Vampire Hunter Rousseau pictures soon, they're more interesting. ^^;; [livejournal.com profile] maelicia and I were talking about various depictions of revolutionaries in Thermidorian propaganda, and the popular description of Maxime as a cat came up.

I commented that it's a good thing no one who had read that particular story had then gone onto a career in anime, or else we'd be faced with catboy!Robespierre and other such things...

Inevitably, I actually did draw it. ^^

I think this picture deserves less of a title than an apology... )

I'm contemplating continuing this, because it takes me about two minutes to do each one. Any ideas? Snake!Marat? Something for Saint-Just? And what is Camille - some sort of pigeon???

Suggestions welcome, please. Accuracy to Thermidorian preferred for the joke value, but not required. ^__^

Um. I blame [livejournal.com profile] maelicia!

Well, it was sort of both our faults. I came up with vampire hunters of the time period and the fact that Rousseau believed in vampires, she came up with the super-secret organization of vampire-hunting philosophes who would have been much more successful if they hadn't argued so much. I came up with the Light of Reason anti-vampire weapon, she came up with using La Nouvelle Heloise's time period fanboy-causing effects as a weapon and having Therese as a vampire-bait sidekick.

It's still mostly her fault. *cough* But I will admit that the picture is all my fault. Please ignore the horrible fashion inaccuracies behind the LJ-cut.

Rousseau: Vampire Hunter! )

I'm trying not to let this turn into a series. Particularly not a series followed by a sequel series titled "Vampire Hunters of the Revolution"...

*shifty eyes* Did you know the REAL reason for the execution of the Hebertists and the Dantonists is that, after years of faithful patriotic super-secret anti-vampire service, they had become infected? The political stuff, that was all cover. Pretty easy-to-find cover, but cover ne'ertheless. And let's not even get STARTED on the vampire aristocracy...besides, we all knew about them anyway.

Right, I forgot to post this.

Anyone remember the skipping stones comic?

Repost for those who forget )

Well, here's the epilogue!

Skipping Stones, Epilogue )

Another of my attempts at realism. This one was done in a very piece-meal way, given my crazy schedule (all I need to do know is a 8-page paper and then start research for the 15-page, and do/catch up on all the hw! Not so bad after the mad midterm-presentation-essay dash), but I still like it. It's not perfect (goddamn mouth! Can't do lips to save my life...and don't get me started on how many times I had to do the hair! Bah, blonds), but at this point I'm poking at it and I don't think there's anything I can think of to make it better. I'm probably wrong on this point, but, ah well. I do apologize for shaggy-hair-of-doom, though - I have no idea how that happened. -_-;; So please, um, don't laugh too hard at that.

Um...yeah, I don't think there's anything else I can add about this.

Okay, there is one comment, and I can only make it because my birthday just passed: I am twenty years old; I have done badly; I will do better.

*cough* *couldn't resist* ^^

Comments, please? :D?

...screw it, I'll post the damn picture now. It's just about done anyway.

It's another experiment in the realistic style. I had a reference for the face, but not for the clothing - that I just did off the top of my head. Which is why it looks so bad: I forgot how to color cloth and tried to do it without looking up any tutorials or anything to remind me how it's done.

I like how the hair came out, though...but the head seems too big for the body...ah, well, to be fixed next time 'round. I did Camille because, well, I had a good reference picture that I wanted to use and I wanted to make all my mistakes when I drew him instead of when I drew any of the others...

Ignore the weird expression, it was much better done on the reference picture. >_>

Camille Desmoulins )

I have a huge 30 min presentation on Wed and 5-page essay to go with it, neither of which have really gotten more than a little bit of progress on, and both of which are for a teacher which cannot abide any realism in her discussions.

...this makes me sad. It also makes me procrastinate.

Quick sketches of god-knows-who. My first attempts at realism for several years, just to see if I could still do it. Answer has turned out to be: ...maybe? Not really..?

Pics here )

*shrug* Figured I might as well post it here. I apologize for the crappy drawing. I should go back to less realistic style. >_

The order: Enjolras, Marius, Combeferre, Courfeyrac, Gavroche, Feuilly, Bahorel, Jean Prouvaire, Lesgle or Laigle, Joly, Grantaire.

LAST ONE! Yes, I'm sure you're all excited. Definitely a "last but not least" situation...Yay, R. ^^ Don't mind the blatant symbolism...okay, after a certain point it's not even symbolism...

Now, as everyone knows, Lesgle - or Laigle or Bossuet, however one chooses to call him - has one slight problem with the whole Mucha/Art Nouveau style, namely that he's, well, bald. And as we've seen in the Jean Prouvaire picture, long & flowing = epitome of the style. Not to mention that hair hides a multitude of artistic sins...^^;;

But I tried. ^___^ I like how it came out, though.

I like this one. ^___^ My mental version of Jean Prouvaire just fits in with the whole art-nouveau movement quite well. I may have, um, overdone the floral theme a bit, but I was giggling the whole time I was doing it, so what the hell. It was fun. I regret nothing. ^^;

Also, I may have had a bit too much fun with his hair. And the background.

Bahorel's not my favorite (he was rather hastily done, unfortunately), but after this we do finally get to my favorite ones. ^_^ But he's not bad, and I liked how his background came out. ^^

Feuilly's turn. Best way to explain this is...I had no idea what in the world I was doing here, but it seems to have come out all right. ^^;; The entire time I was drawing this, I kept thinking "Feuilly: the original fan boy!" and snickering...

Another obviously early attempt.

Okay, I know Gavroche isn't really an ABCs, but I couldn't resist...^^;;

Also, as you can guess from this update, the pictures remain intact. Something would be DEAD if they hadn't...
