Spring Wedding by XNedra22 Spring Wedding by XNedra22
This was a commission for :iconsarahostervig: of her two characters, Cold Heart and Shy Feathers. The character's designs are copyright to her, though the clothing design is my own. The request was for 1800's inspired attire for a wedding in early spring.

I went WAY overboard with this... :faint:

Canvas Size: 35 inches tall by 55 inches wide
Time Spent: 12 Hours
Tools: Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CS5

(I mean, I have seen bigger commissions, but that isn't what I'm here to tell you.)


Very nicely done. You really quite captured some of the 1800's look, besides the really big hats, though, I don't think they were wedding attire. And it kind of looks like you used a cherry blossom tree for the background. Not sure though, but it's still a very nice piece.

Thanks, yeah I don't want to draw TOO big, but still, big canvas is big.

They are cherry trees in the background, to me, they scream spring, and the soft pink hues really seemed to fit with the female character's design.

Yeah, I understand. That is a big canvas. (Kind of like to us writer's, our stories are our canvas, in a way.)

Like I said, I like it a lot. It looks, well, like two ponies just got married. So, anyways, that's awesome.

(Heh, and I thought the commission I was working on now was big XD
Guess I have nothing to complain about as far as size goes!)

This turned out fantastic~ and I be the research for the clothing was fun! Reminds me of Austen~ as it should! :D I would have loved looking at old wedding/formal attire. X3 I did a bit of research on some 1800's formal attire myself several years ago.

I went a bit overboard for Prom one year and ended up trying to go in Regency Era period-correct clothing ^^; couldn't find shoes that fit the era AT ALL. Was rather disappointed by that :P But I tried my best to make sure everything else was as close as I could manage. AND NOW I'VE GONE ON TOO LONG AND COMPLETELY CHANGED THE SUBJECT FROM YOUR ARTWORK. I'll just leave now XD

XD I love you Lily!

Thanks so much, I'm glad you like the piece. And hey, someone else who appreciates period clothing! (I actually had Darcy in mind when I designed Cold Heart's attire) Sometimes I wish THAT was the retro fashion that came back into style, instead of 70's and 80's stuff.

And OMG really? That's freaking hilarious!

And a little nuggety fun fact: My senior year, I was cast as Lady Catherine de Bourgh in our version of Pride and Prejudice. I loved playing a bitchy old lady.

OMG. That's awesome!

And I TOTALLY see the Darcy inspiration! Which actor is your fav Darcy (if you have one)? Personally, I think Colin Firth from the A&E iteration of the book will always be my favorite.

Colin Firth please! I'm not a fan of Kiera Knightly, or her angsty looking man-child.

XD I don't think he was *THAT* bad, I just like Colin Firth SO much better. To me he portrayed the stiffness/awkwardness more convincingly. I thought he seemed like he had a better fit to the era.

Oh my gosh is this piece wonderful. I absolutely love the clothing designs, and the background is simply perfect!

As well, the cherry blossom leaves (?) are just amazing in this.

Lol, I thought the floating petals would add a nice touch. I had trouble getting things to flow correctly at first, but once I found a color scheme I was happy with... well I went nuts. XD

I love how her wings are a different color than her coat; it contrasts so perfectly with the outfit.
