1760's Dresses by Seitou 1760's Dresses by Seitou

Fashion Timeline: 1760-1810

Year: ca 1760-1769
Style: Rococo or Georgian
Dresses: Robe à la française
Description: A gown style that had a fitted bodice opening to show a stomacher; also called a "sack back" because of the two large double pleats which hung freely at the back from the shoulders to hem. It was very popular during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the 18th century. During the last quarter, until the Revolution, it was only for ceremonial court functions that it was worn in its original form (from "Galerie des Modes").

The full body versions of Collette and Cosette from my last deviation... in flat colors!

You know what's really funny? I go through the trouble of shading all my "finished" images... but I think I actually like the flat-colors-only look better :XD: It's just so much cleaner looking. Plus, you get a better look at the line art :D :D :D I'm using this look for the sake of saving time... but I think I may even continue using it after I'm done with this project if enough people like it.

And yes, it's a boring white background. But so what? I was going to use a DA-background-matching background... but that means I'd have to reupload the image everytime DA decides to change its look :P

This may sound odd, but I love their hands.

Great job.

With pictures like these, you don't have to worry about the background being white. Seriously, they're stunning. The hands and faces are what struck me most, and we all know that they're a bitch to do. :D
you've been featured here [link] :)

You mention about the colouring in this...I agree. Your previous colouring never really took away from the line art, but this type of colouring really shows it off. I do like it. And wow, the detail in this is great; the patterns in the fabric look like they took a while to make. :) I'm not too familiar with this kind of style, so it's nice to see it drawn.

Hmmm, you know what I just barely realized? It seems like you name your characters with names that begin only with "C". (Or at least, the majority of them.) That is very interesting.

Yes, all the characters have names starting with "C"... but I have no clue why :XD: I think it started as a random gag :giggle:

with all the detail keeping it flat colored really lets you show off the pattern. I like it better flat! good choice!

who rides so late in the night and wind?
he is father with his child;
he has the boy well in his arm,
He holds him for tight, he holds him warm.

Ich finde diese Zeichnen echt gut! ich mache auch Kostueme im freizeit. schon, ich liebe 1700's Kleidung, echt toll.
