Green Eyes - Victorian Portrait Study by DonnovanKnight Green Eyes - Victorian Portrait Study by DonnovanKnight

My current style and what I’m working on in general is using Victorian Era photos as a reference, many I plan on using are nudes. There’s several reasons that is. First, many are elegant in style and fashion. Second, the body image seemed to be more natural, they didn’t have #bodypositive or anything like that, they just were. There wasn’t a need for unnatural body augmentations. Finally, #copyright. That might seem strange but I’m really against the current trend of locking up all creative works indefinitely. It’s for this reason that I’m going back and using #PublicDomain photos. To assert a reason why we need it.

The actual style is just using pen and ink or markers, then giving it color with either gouache or watercolor. It’s simple and yet I’ve always liked the look and tend to always go back to it. And then become sad when I use the wrong pens and it becomes a muddy mess when I apply the color.
