Mary Wordsworth by YanYu Mary Wordsworth by YanYu
Practicing people and stylization by turning photos/paintings into cartoons.

I'd been meaning to draw something related to rococo for DAC but it turns out this painting is british. DERP, oh well.

This is just so cool. Like lookit all those folds and shades and the cloth actually looks like satin. And the stylisation! That's the best part. AWESOME stylisation! Looks uber cool man. Love it :iconilikeitplz:

Oh cool! Me too, really love em. I also like piano music as well. Cellos are really cool. Do you listen to apocalyptica by any chance?

This is really nice! I love the idea of taking a classical painting and re imagining it into your own style. And you did a really good job of it as well! I love that you changed the expression so drastically as well...the new one is so sassy. XD

Actually I take that back. I am 90% sure it's Joshua Reynolds now.

YanYu Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010
Whoaaa thanks! I can confirm that it is 100% Joshua Reynolds now. The woman in that portrait is Mary Wordsworth, Lady Kent. It's a British painting, which totally makes this NOT Rococo. (I typed in Rococo in google image searh, and that's how I found it.)

Reynolds' paintings are splendid, I'm so glad I know his stuff now. Thanks so much! :kiss:

I feel like by the style it may be Kauffmann, but I am really not sure. Do you have the title or anything, or another source? I was able to find it linked in this Arabic article ( [link] ), but that's it.

Since I want to know as much as you, I will continue to comb the internets.

Wow. 14 years of french and that's all I can come up with. ANYWHO...

Wow, I really love how soft your linework is. I noticed it especially around where the nose is, then in the hair. *o* Absolutely gorgeous, it's like Baroque meets art nouveau.

I have no idea if this is close to baroque, I based it off of a rococo painting hahahah

And it was influenced by a song that was influenced by the french revolution, but the song itself is from the baroque pop genre..
