My inspirations often come from the most surprising things...I was on my new favorite site, swap-bot.com, and was excited to find a swap for items that "Marie Antoinette would have loved". I've always enjoyed the opulence and beauty from that time in French history. Their clothes, wigs, powdered faces, and luxurious surroundings are just so lovely to look upon (although I'm sure the women could barely move in the bodice and layered dresses they wore, lol). I suddenly felt the urge to sketch out my version of Marie, and I just let myself go with the fun of it. You can find her in my Etsy shop!
Would you like to be your own Marie (well, minus her poor guillotine fate)?
