Dear cherik fandom, you probably don’t remember this post (yes, one year ago). I only want to let you know that was Erik wearing 70’s questionable fashion. I was seeing this coming have a loooong time, okay? (and the other half of the drawing must remain out of the fandom)
Singer, dear… I’m sorry but you’re late! :P
Am I the only one who wants to see the rest of the picture? I’m intrigued by the pattern of the dress, the garter, and what I am assuming is a dress strap…
Shock rippled through him. “Mother, you are not suggesting…”
“What else is there to do, Charles?” she snapped. “Will you work all your life like low-class peasants? When there is an avenue to be taken here, a viable alternative to be considered, should you not consider it?”
“Consider it?” Charles repeated incredulously. “Are you asking me to marry Cain Marko?”
“No, Charles. I am ordering you to do it. It is the only way — the best way.”
[…]He took a breath. Some of his newfound resolve must have shown on his face, for his mother nodded and said, “You understand then?”

Fanart for ikeracity’s Regency AU which I heartily recommend.
One problem I have in drawing is that it is really hard for me to mimic and absorb other people’s style. I can just plain imitate when needed, but when drawing my own stuff I’ll throw those knowledge away, like short term memory. Some people said it is a good thing (harder to be influenced), but I feel I am like running blindly by myself.
So, I am going to just imitate some artists I like and see what I get out of it: here’s J.C Leyendecker, hopefully you can tell XDrz
Not everyone is good at mimicry (in fact I down right suck) but there are certain touches that make up your style that will always shine through. It’s what makes you style so lovely and recognizable.
