Cosette by lorneniesart Cosette by lorneniesart
I was bored and just wanted to work on some silly colored-pencil piece; I actually finished it a week ago, but I only got to a scanner just now. Oh man, the scanner in the digital media lab is FANTASTIC. It is my new best friend.

Here we have Cosette from Les Miserables (as described in the book, anyway). Honestly I just used her as an excuse to draw silly early 1830s hair/sleeves.

Colored pencil, Cosette belongs to Victor Hugo.

Cosette's hair is fabulous! Have you seen the BBC adaptation of "Wives and Daughters"? The 1830s fashions in it are just to die for!

(I have a weakness for apollo knots, as you can see from this picture here. [link] )

Apollo knots are so great/hilarious.

And we have the DVD of Wives and Daughters somewhere, but my Grandmother still has it I think. I think they have it in the library too...

Your unbelievable attention to detail on the sleeve had me STARING at it for a good few minutes! O__O Amazing work! The hair, of course, is wonderful too. Brilliant!

I really have to wonder how long it took to do one's hair like that.
And if it took more or less time than it took you to draw those curls!
Oh, the 1830s...

Very very nice drawing!
