Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche by LyrykenLied Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche by LyrykenLied
Request for Axel-von-Fersen. Hope you'll like it :)

Another pencil portrait of an historical character, this time is Queen of France Marie-Antoinette. All these details were challenging but great to draw.

Your attention to detail is amazing. Look at her hair! And the feathers, and the lace around her neck. Wow...

I think you really did capture the essence of her features. Marie Antoinette was a beautiful woman and you captured her beauty. Yet at this time 1787 and 1788 she was a queen who had great concerns of state on her mind. That seriousness you also captured very well. I do have several other Marie Antoinette pictures I would love you to try - most with wonderful curly hair you do well :) If you are game I will send another :)

Thank you very much! I agree with you, she was blessed with beauty, which wasn't exactly the case of some other Habsbourg relatives ^^'
I am open to any other request from you. Just take in account that I just received two other requests and so I might not be able to fulfill it until next week. Add me to your deviantwatch so you won't miss the next deviations (I also plan to draw some Louis XIV portrait or his brothers in the next few days).:sun:

That's wonderful. Here are two links - the first is to the full picture [link]

The second is just to the Queen's face, earrings and hair - a close up.

This picture shows off her hat and plumes but also her buxom figure - that I hope you will also bring out. You showed the Queen as a great beauty in your last portrait and I much look forward to the next. It does not surprise me you have other requests. I will look forward to it when you get to it. Thank you!!

I do like it! You did a wonderful job. I like the Queen's expression and look - think you captured her! She looks serious and a bit distant and detached, perhaps wirth serious concerns on her mind as she may have have had in 1787 or 1788 in those difficult years just before the French Revolution. Plus the details of your drawing! - love the headdress and plumes, and her sash. You also did such a nice job with all the curls in the Queen's hair. Thank you for such a nice portrait of Queen Marie-Antoinette. :)

I am very glad to read this! Capture the very essence of her features was probably the hardest part, I am happy if you think I didn't fail at it. And the hair was the best part to do, just like my previous portrait. Thanks to you too, because this picture was a very good suggestion! Feel free to contact me if you have any other request in the future. I will gladly take it :)
