The topic is “Vanity” at Illustration Friday, a word that will occasionally describe both Julian Jean-Pierre and Jacques Lapinbleu (above). I mean, with those kind of names, it’s a little hard to avoid.
The bunny got a bit overdone. Hence the lots of progress pics – many trying to correct problems! Thanks for stopping in!
Jackon’s Haartebeest reference photo.
They are both very beautiful! Their vanity is justifiably. The blue lapin has sublime glasses!
I don’t know why, but I thought of Sherlock Holmes when I saw Jacques. LOL
These two are great! Love all of the patterns and the cropping, never mind the color and expression!
I find it tempting to be rather vain when sporting a neck ruff or cravat myself – nicely done!!
Oh my…these two are very fancy!
Julian and Jacques are quite seductive. One can tell they are sure they are the cats meow. I love you work and know how long it takes to do such pen and ink drawings and paintings. Great that you post progress pics.
The teeth in Lapinbleu crack me up, Cindy! …but I like the eyes on Julian.
Both are GORGEOUS!!! love Julian and all the patterns you creat!
Bwahahahaha! Jacques Lapinbleu has the best teeth. I’m a little concerned that someone slipped a hallucinogenic into his breakfast cereal, though, because he looks thoroughly shocked by whatever he is seeing through those fantastically detailed glasses! His collar doings are perhaps my favorite. It’s like he’s rocking a scarf AND a cravat.
Julian looks like he might be a little vain more often than occasionally – or perhaps better said, he has very erect and precise carriage for someone who is not vain all the time. Love his ruff! (Of course.)
Two fabulous and interesting chaps….in fancy clothing to match their fancy names…..and quite vain indeed! Bravo….well done Cindy!
I was just thinking about how fancy this pair were when I read your description. Ha! How cool they look in their fancy duds, but they already know that. Super details as always and I really love their names :)
I knew Vanity would be a perfect word for your fancy dress friends! These guys are psychedelic and awesome. I would love to see you do one of those big giant cow statues, or elephants, or whatever animal. You know, like they had in display in certain cities a few years back. How fabulous yours would be!
Gorgeous both of them! :)
I especially like Julian. Nice job!
