Mademoiselle Colombe by KmyeChan Mademoiselle Colombe by KmyeChan
Copyright © Kmye Chan, 2011. All rights reserved.


My artwork for the Pin Up show, at La Gallery in Montréal and Paris!
I tried to get a sort-of vintage feeling for this picture, since the show focuses on vintage pin-up girls.

Also, I (almost) entirely recorded my work process while I did this picture. The sketching is already available on my blog here, and the colouring is here (in two parts). Don't hesitate to ask if you have questions. :)

Limited edition fine art prints are available directly from me on my Etsy store.

[Inks, markers, acrylics, watercolors and pencils on paper | 25x35 cm]

Mademoiselle Colombe by *kmye-chan A "Pin-Up" of yesteryear... old-fashioned and yet exudes sex appeal. Check the gallery for many wonderful traditional art pieces. ( Suggested by LadyFromEast and Featured by WDWParksGal )

Waou ! J'adore, pour la belle rousse, le style XIXème siècle des vêtements et la fumée du porte-cigarette !

C'est plein de poésie et de charme, bravo !:)

I really like this piece :D I like how graceful Mademoiselle is as she sits precariously on the birdcage. The detail of the lace on her clothing and her hair are amazing, and, well...it's such a well-executed piece, right down to the "birds" floating from the cigarette.

Your artwork just keeps getting better and better. Consider it favourited :+fav:

Felicitations pour le DD! C'est bien merite!

Et puis je suis bien contente que tu as pu faire un montage video pour nous montrer tout le travail derriere ton dessin (j'en suis maintenant beaucoup plus reconnaissant du travail et l'effort que tu y met!)

Les differents outils ensembles donne une bonne texture et effet, (au fait j'avais meme du mal a voir comment tu les utilisais sans qu'on puisse voir les frontiere entre feutres et peintures et crayon.

Donc en gros super dessin! et Merci pour les video du processus
