Queen of Frost and Darkness x by janey-jane Queen of Frost and Darkness x by janey-jane
This is the Romantic era version of the interior illustration for the story 'Queen of Frost and Darkness' by Christine Pope from the winter issue of Dark Valentine Magazine. I drew it without considering that most people don't really like the romantic era ^^; and the author preferred that they be wearing bustles. Because digital art and layers are AWESOME it was an easy fix.

The final version of this illustration and the cover illustration for the same issue:

When you first posted the two versions of these, it took me a moment to see the different dresses. What's wrong with the romantic era? SILLY AUTHOR.

it is one of those eras that a lot of costume history buffs just can't get into. It took me years to get around to sort-of liking it. I don't know why... maybe its the really odd proportions? I mean, odder than many other historic eras. Sort of like the late-Elizabethan - something about the proportions just makes people kinda go "eew"

thank you! and its a bit of a mystery to me why the romantic era is so unpopular. It isn't any more ridiculous than the rococo or the victorian...

I like this one because I think Jane should always be allowed to do whatever she wants.

Also omg calm down the background decorations, girl, you're gonna hurt yourself!

I remember seeing this one and going "that is the nice girl, and that is the b*tch!" Look at her getting all the attention from those boys. I kindof want to see a version of this where instead of looking concerned the other girls are talking smack. Like, who does she think she is, those gloves are so last season, did you hear about that super-rude thing she said to francine the other day, etc. That or a Romantic era slap fight. Yeah....

Also, i love the little subtle patterns you put in the girls' dresses! So pretty....

I have to make myself start drawing backgrounds if I'm going to continue to do illustrations.

And the idea of a romantic-era slap flight complete with hair-pulling = win.

I like this because of the puffy sleeves. I like the other because you made it more glowy. I like the Queen's dress in the other one, but I love the dress on Galya better in this one...so hard to choose!

I kinda prefer this one, the dresses look a lot more natural on the people than they do in the other drawing.

the bustle era was definitely a stiff, highly stylized look. I like both eras these days - preference just depends on my mood at the time.
