A suggestive drawing for my Tumblr friends. XD OOoooo, you naughty peeps, you! XD
Robespierre and Saint-Just, ballpoint pen. Robespierre seriously worked himself half to death all the time; people seemed to be constantly telling him to calm down and take a break.
I know, something weird with Robespierre's face. Because of the nature of his features and the shape of his head, he is very difficult to draw. Maybe I'll have better luck next time.
As for the slight change in S-J's appearance, I've been forcing myself to temper Prud'hon's portrait with the two paintings by Greuze. One of these days, I'll work in some David. It's the only major one I haven't worked with yet. There have been some film-inspired S-Js (Danton, and Revolution Francaise), I just haven't shared them.
Anyway... Yeah, I know. My recent obsession with Saint-Just and the French Revolution? Can't explain it. Still a history fangirl after all these years.
