Because every once in a while I feel the need to draw something pretty and ruffly. And inked! (well, if it's all done on the computer is it technically still 'inked'?)
Anyway, yeah, began as a sketch that I liked enough to clean up and color. Julia in her ball gown, ca. 1873.
Textures are scanned scrapbook paper, floral design came from 408 Victorian Ornamental Designs
by Dover Publications, and Julia is of course mine.
