Mariya Nikolayevna Rusikova by ruskina Mariya Nikolayevna Rusikova by ruskina
I wasn't feeling well today (and a lot of bad stuff's been going on so I'm feeling blah all around) so I drew this. I've painted like this a few times, never hands though so that was interesting o3o'' I still hate fabric. Fabric sucks. Fuck you, fabric.
Royals have portraits done of themselves, I kind of wondered what Mariya's would look like (since she's a royal, or was). The backgrounds simple and not very good, but I was sneezing and coughing so I gave up after the head xD Maybe I'll finish it some other time. Mariya's probably 16 here.
(I use the Marie Antoinette as inspiration here: [link] )
Anyway, I made her lips different because that's how they were generally painted; full and pretty. Mariya's lips aren't thin, but they aren't that puffy haha! And her cheekbones contradicted the "innocent" image the painter was going for, so he made her face rounder (in my imagination shh)
Mariya probably wasn't even making that face, she was probably glaring at him. Oh, Mariya.
So, yeah, that's Mariya Nikolayevna Rusikova in all of her royal glory.

ps requests i'm getting there I'm just so tired and I needed to do something for me forgive me all of you :love: :hug: :love: :love: :hug: :glomp: :heart: :heart:

Amazing! The fabric of the skirt looks great. The whole thing is really well-painted. Good skin tones too. ^_^
