I wanted to create an image like Laura Laine's by having an image in the background. I dragged an image of a cupcake into the illustration to incorporate a Marie Antoinette theme into my image. Originally i had started shading in my illustration to make an exact copy of Laura Laine's image, but then i started to mess around with image adjustments and found a sketch tool that i think had made my image clean and different. I decided that my illustration shouldn't be the same as Laura Laine's. I like that it has it's own style.
|This is original image i drew inspired by Laura Laine's illustrations. I changed her illustration by adding a Marie Antoinette inspired dress and headband in the big hair. In my opinion it's quite messy so i wanted to clean it up on photoshop.|
This is the finished product. :) I used images like cupcakes and cards to incorporate a Marie Antoinette theme into the illustration. I also used muted, girly colours to link to Marie Antoinette. I found images off the internet and manipulated them erasing some of the image and changing the opacity to produce the effect on my drawing.
I started out with a line drawing that was taken from a Linn Olofsdotter's illustration. I then scanned in the image and cleaned it up on Photoshop.

Typical choice as it may well be I've chosen Marie Antoinette to base my final collection on. I watched Sofia Coppola's adaption who used one of my favourite actresses, Kirsten Dunst, to star as the troubled Queen. I loved her modern take on the story and the colours and costumes were beautiful. I liked how the film setting was so decadent and the clothes were all candy-coloured, but behind this dream-like state the monarchy was in ruin. Not to mention huge debt.
I think there has been many people who have used Marie Antoinette as inspiration but i want to make it my own. This might be hard but i like a challenge. :)
