Rue des Florentins by boum Rue des Florentins by boum
WHEW.

I've been working on this the whole week-end. I rarely ever put more than three or four hours into the colouring of an illustration, but this required a good 8+ hours I think, but I'm glad I did because it's been a while since I did something as complete.

It's Florence, from my novella La petite révolution (The Small Revolution) [link] I realized recently I'd never drawn her in context, so I figured it was a good opportunity to practice drawing backgrounds. I'm not fantastic at it and I still have lots to learn, but I think it's not too bad for a start. I'm happy with it.

I hope you like too :heart:

I enjoy the overall feel to it, and dont worry about the background thing a few hours practicing perspective will get you rollin and really confortable with it!
But your backgrounda are fine dont stress it out hun <3

Littered with the grit of reality... !!!
I don't know if it was intended, but it is humorous to me that the arrow on the drum is facing the "correct" way... right next to a defaced political sign calling for Anarchy. A little Ironic, is all ;)

Most excellent picture, boum! Nice work =D

Ah ouaaais!

J'avais peur qu'on se perde dans le décor mais l'ombre dans la ruelle fais vraiment bien la job. J'aime!

I like it! So detailed, but very bleak at the same time.

The pale colours are wonderful. You brought them out so well. And I've always been fond of Florence's design. She's a very interesting character.
