Reference Royal Couple by crayonmaniac Reference Royal Couple by crayonmaniac
Hello,

I am too sick and I cannot paint so I just wanted to show the reference pick of my royal couple and show you all the extend of my own creativity and the extend of the references.

As the movie "The Ten Commandments" is not common knowledge you can compare for yourself.

The decision I made was that I didn't want the fifties influences in my painting like her hair and I didn't want his stern look but I wanted love and tenderness in his firm grip contrary to the domination of Yul Brunner.

I hope this is fun for my watchers to see my deviation of the original.

Thanks again to all for the way this painting is received and if you ever come to watch the 10 commandments, well enjoy it, there was quite some great scenery depicting Egypt.
************************************

And, once again, you don't have to fave this, it is only a little comparison which will go in scraps soon but I won't be angry with those who cannot help themselves to fave it anyway :hug:

Still not feeling very well, but I will feel better again !!! Hope you're better again...Just can't do without the Crayon Magic, ;) !!!
But its cool to see the reference scene from the Ten Commandments (Which is one of my classic and epic faves, ;) !!) you used for this work...And I must say :wow:, you sure did an excellent job :thumbsup::clap: !!! So better start on the Wacom again and keep amazing me, my dear friend :iconcarameldansenplz: !!! :hug:

danke eric, ik kom ook juist uit twee griep virussen, eerst hoest enzo, daarna eentje met maagproblemen, tweemaal in bed, tweemaal koorts, pfffff
je laatste werk is enorm mooi, ik heb je dat geschreven.
Vandaag heb ik weer wat kunnen schilderen en morgen maak ik het af, een magisch werkje en weer eens totaal wat anders.
Het vervolg op mijn pierrot.
Bedankt dat iemand zoals jij gelooft in mijn kunnen (en al mijn niet kunnen lol lol lol)

It's nice to see the reference along. When you start a painting, do you start from the original photo or do you start from scratch?

99% From scratch, I put the blanc page next to the original and start to paint with grid lines to guide me, but I know myself, I don't overpaint because I know I want to deviate too much and do it my own way, I don't wanny be bound to the original, I want my artistic freedom. It has happened ocasionally that I took a tiny piece to overpaint because I found it hard to create from scratch, a hand or so, but as a rule I create from a white page, for me that is easier. Hope this helps

thought you might like it, certainly those amongst us who know the reference, to see what I did with it. Thanks for the prayers david, I need them a bit this time, things look rather bleak for the moment. And on top of that I cannot paint, what can be more punishment for an artist lol

I adore the 50 and 60 movies so so much and the look too but here I thought it would be nice to paint a more modern version.
But I am quite a fanatic of all the old movies, the marilyn, carry grant, grace kelly, sophia loren elegance.
Why, those movies are my life, the B&W, the intrigues, the understatement, waw.
So yes I adore it, don't get me wrong, but for the egypt contest their faces where just a bit too time related and I didn't want that result here.
