I wanted to do something different today, so I went through my file of sketches and found this one of Sylvie, drawn first in early 2009. She required only a very few minor adjustments and then a quick coloring. I used the opportunity to experiment with my brushes in Sai as well as a limited palette and dramatic shading (well, dramatic for ME).

Originally, the white parts were going to be blue; I decided against it when I hid the blue layer to clean up the reds and liked the clean effect.

I want her hat.

ETA: critiques are encouraged but not necessarily for this pic; I'd like to know what I could do on future images. This one is pretty much done.

We could think she comes from the 20s (nice period ^^)

You're right, she's from 1923! :) I should draw her more; she is a fun character to design.

<333 Thank you, love! I was going for something along those lines. Either that, or the portraits they took--photography was really interesting in the 20s and they were just beginning to use it more casually. <3

I love this!
She looks so pretty! And the colors for her hat and clothes (that red) is perfect-- muted, so it's not bright/annoying red, but still bold. :D

Thank you so much! The color took a long time to pick, for that very reason. I didn't want something too modern, either--there's a really distinct palette for the 1920s. :heart:
