I made this piece for Ludi in the Side Show swap and wanted to share. It's been a number of years since I've drawn seriously, but I enjoyed the process!
On Ludi's questionnaire she mentioned wall art and anything with two heads, so my idea was to make a Victorian side show poster introducing 'The Valmont Sisters, The Living Skeleton of Paris'.
There are no such twins, I just made them up, but if I were them, I'd want to wear a circus tent skirt with a sky of stars peaking out from underneath!

Just incredible!!! I too, would want the circus tent skirt and starry sky underneath. Wish I could have this paper skill, even to  small % of what you do.

I love it so much!   Cheesy  Photos don't do justice to the detail of the drawing and the delicacy of the coloring.

Thank you for the kind words. I'm a little obsessed with circus tent skirts now.I'm going to take AM's advice and draw something else...maybe the gypsy bird woman from Romania!  Cheesy

I love it! It reminds me of some of Neil Gaiman's writings. Beautiful work.
