Jonas and Anya by artsangel Jonas and Anya by artsangel
In honour of :iconseitou: cause she does such awesomely detailed costume pics XD

This is sort of meant to be vagely evocative of those old victorian-era fashion plates where people stood around in pretty rooms wearing pretty clothes. It was a lot of fun to draw :)

Great image! I love the sideways glances! And the dress is to die for! This is the characters from The Phoenix Requiem again, right?

Jonas. Good heavens, man, eat more. You'll kill yourself this... way... Oh yeah. >.>

I love your shading so much, madam. At the risk of sounding like a repetitive robot (though I mean it every time), your art is fantastic.

What a bustle! :D Very awesome.
tsau-mia Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010
I look at a dress like that and start to think about how all women way back when must have had great legs from carrying around all that weight all day long.

man i love that dress. I used to read this comic but then real life and my own alzheimerpowers took over and I totally lost my way and almost forgot it. Hmm must reread it and 5 other comics in the summer so I don miss everything.

It wouldn't be in my gallery if I didn't make it!
Siremaik Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2010
I just love her dress, the bustle and ruffles are exquisite!
Seasonsong Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2010
I love the way this turned out, though I am a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl myself, I love how the dress turned out. My fav dress that Anya ever wore was the one that Jonas gave her.

Distressing-Damsel Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009
I love that time period, (1870's-ish) when they had the awesome bustles :) I got to where one of those dresses once *sigh*
Your painting is beautiful(so is her dress!)

I love Anya and Jonas (specially Jonas of course) You're a great comic artist keep up the good work!

I do love those old Victorians...
blackmoonalchemist Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009
all the clothes you create for this webcomic are incredibly amazing. I am very happy to say that your work has completely enraptured me.
distanceleven Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009
Love the flowers decorating Anya. :)
Rhinegraf Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2009
This is my kind or anime!! Great job! :D
kateavalanche Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
...why do you say it's anime?
If you were to compare it to another style, I would almost say it's bordering on Disney, not anime...
Tomatosoup Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2009
Amazing detail, I love the costumes! :D
JayChambers Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2009
It's the before picture of Fallen!

They're both so detailed I don't know which is my favorite.
distanceleven Featured By Owner May 23, 2009
absolutely gorgeous picture. they both look amazingly beautiful.

I love this to pieces!
jacamat Featured By Owner May 23, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
So I was wandering deviantART, and stumbled across your gallery, and omg. I'm so glad I did! :D

You have really amazing skill at putting detail into things, without making them look "hollow" and drawn out. Like so many people I see attempt this Victorian style, and make the characters look very 'flat' or add detail to one thing (the clothes) and forget the character. Your work has a lot of expression from both and I really like it.

Awesome piece - awesome gallery. I'm in love. 8D
kiaMAE Featured By Owner May 19, 2009
I love the details in all of your work. Phoenix Requiem is amazing. I was glued to the art for hours. I need to go back and actually read the words.
myst-x Featured By Owner May 18, 2009
Awesome job, you do beautiful work!
KestrelWings Featured By Owner May 7, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh man, I LOVE that dress! The details are so intricate, I don't think I'd ever have the patience to do something like this myself. And I must say, Jonas looks darn good in that suit.

I love this! The cleaness of the lines and the patterns are beautiful. :)

I love the character and costume designs! :)
Itxaro Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
I love these characters so much! Especially Jonas! I just wish that I knew more about him... he's so mysterious! Though I suppose it wouldn't be a good web comic if you ave everything away all at once! XD
Great work! Faved once again!
oralindie Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
This is lovely painting. I love the details and the patterns you put in the dress and the subtle pink colour scheme.

I don't know if you've read Lois McMaster's 'Miles' series, but this is how I picture the people dressing for the Vor balls. :)
the-zilla Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Hobbyist
Anya's face reminds me of my favourite female teacher in high school. Not to say that the faces are alike, but the expressions are.

Anyways, that's supposed to be a good thing. :)

If I could prance about in Anya's getup for a day, I would be so silly-happy ....I can't think of an appropriate metaphor. But it'd be a hassle sitting down in that bustle.

Oddly enough, I still like Anya better in her normal clothes. Probably because that's how I know her. :P Faulkner ...know what; he's Faulkner. Throw him in anything; he'll still look good.

I can't even help but love Jonas.

Fabulous detail work on the gown, and you've captured the spirit of those old-school fashion plates perfectly :)

Jonas! *foam*
MadameDezzyB Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009
I love this. I like the way the designs overlap each other like that.
likala Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2009
I love you, AA!!! :D
:worship: This is so beautiful, your attention to detail never ceases to amaze. I can't stop staring and analysing all the details, this would be such a nice wallpaper.

For some reason, Jonas reminds me a little of Dr Who... It might be just the usual 'Dr Who pose' thing he's got going.

And ditto on the colour scheme, it works really well. Especially on Anja's dress. Love it, love it, love it! Love all of it :)
TamsTheGenkiQueen Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I forgot how much I love the clothing here....god it's so gorgeous! Jonas is quite the Dapper Dan.

Anya's dress is beautiful. I love when people can draw falling cloth just right....I love how folds look. :) I'd love to see Petria in a dress like this, even if it's just a what-if picture.
