The minute I saw the beautiful photo of Lisajenstock: [link]
I knew I had to use it for a drawing of mine. I love the posture and the clothing. It poses such elegance.
I wanted to keep her features while still changing her to make her more unique. I gave her a bit longer and more wavy hair and I gave her a rose in her hand as I felt it was very suitable for what I had in mind. I struggled a bit with the rose to get all the details in. The rose is about 1 cm only, making it some work to get right. Had it been bigger I would have been able to add more details.
I changed the corset to a simpler one as I like it better this way. I also made the lower part of the dress a bit lighter cause I thought it would look good with it not being too dark, as the rest.
She sort of reminds me of porcelain doll.
I do feel happy with this drawing, I think it's my favourite this year. I put so much time into it and I feel it went as I wished for.
I hope you like it
