olde_fashioned: (Bright Star -- lavender fields)
I made these a few months back, after watching Bright Star for the first time. Such a pretty movie!!! Not being huge on poetry myself, this might not be the best thing for someone with a low "emo" tolerance, but the visuals certainly are worth it. *sigh*

I want all of Fanny's clothes. :P

At long last, I've finished this [livejournal.com profile] icons100 batch...it took me longer than I wanted due to a lack of creativity. I'm satisfied, however, with FINALLY having made a proper batch of icons from one of my very favourite movies. ;-)

olde_fashioned: (P&P2 -- Lizzy & Darcy (Lambton Inn))
Arguably one of the best costume dramas ever produced (and one of if not THE best Jane Austen adaptation to date), this batch just kind of "happened"...and then it grew and grew and grew, so I figured why not get a [livejournal.com profile] icons100 claim for it! ;-P

I do love this movie, it'll always be one of my "feel-good" pieces, and I love how faithful (and LONG!!!) to the original novel it is. The costumes, the music (who else had to run out and buy a CD with "Mr. Beveridge's Maggot" on it?), the acting and casting... ♥

olde_fashioned: (read -- Vigee LeBrun)
A very large and very random batch of Regency and Jane Austen themed icons from various icontests. Some of these are a bit old, since I haven't posted an icontest dump in quite a while. ;-) Nearly all of the Jane Austen adaptations are represented, some art and fashion plates of the period, and there is also a Pride & Prejudice journal header and a matching friends only banner.

I'll spend my days in endless roaming )
olde_fashioned: (Regency -- a lady of fashion)
I spent a few evenings on drawing this, after Gerard's painting Madame Recamier. I sat with a fashion book from the library which had a picture of the painting in it, propping both the book and my sketchbook in my lap as I got cross-eyed drawing all those stinking folds! *lol*

I do think she turned out pretty well, even if I do say so myself. I certainly had a good time sketching her, and as always when I copy a painting, I have a new-found appreciation for all of the incredible detail Gerard put into her. And, I might add, Gerard's portrait was infinitely preferred to David's by both myself and Juliette Recamier herself. ;-)

You can view Gerard's original portrait here, and the full size version of my sketch (not just the header I made out of it) is behind the cut, because it's rather big. ;-) This header I just played with GIMP to color it a little.

I have been meditating on the very great pleasure which a pair of fine eyes in the face of a pretty woman can bestow. )
olde_fashioned: (art -- pink)
34 icons: 22 of the artwork of Elizabeth Vigee Le Brun and 12 of some Vintage Italian lady coasters of mine. I think these are Vintage, but sadly the ones for March and December have been lost. :-( As for the Vigee Le Brun icons, I just couldn't get enough of her artwork! Some of the costumes depicted are vasilate between late-Georgian and Regency. I love her choice of colors!

Please credit and comment, right-click to see the name of the painting, and don't steal or hotlink. Enjoy!
