Swan~Lake by chiaroscuro8 Swan~Lake by chiaroscuro8
A collection inspired by the ballet Swan Lake. It's fun drawing dramatic dance poses c:
__________________________________________________________________________________
L-R:
Von Rothbart: the main antagonist. I was going to go with an all black costume, but all black's annoying to colour so I added some hints of red and gold. Most acts he appears in his owl form, hence the wings.
The Black Swan/Odile: Rothbarts daughter, magically disguised as Odette to trick the Prince into breaking vow of love to Odette, the white swan. Black ribbons and big tutu with gold glitter.
The White Swan/Odette: The main protagonist, the lead ballerina role. Flowing skirt and a crown, cos she is the Swan Queen. The costumes not totally white but like black, white is annoying and also kind of boring to draw.
Swan: One of those little swans from the Danse des Petite Cygnes. Hints of blue on white.
___________________________________________________________________________________
I drew Odile and Odette with more or less the same features cos they're usually portrayed by the same dancer c;

Simply beautiful... I love classic ballets, and the Swan Lake was the first that I knew, so it's special for me... and I love how you draw it! I'm really happy that I was able to met this artwork!

These are all very lovely, and well designed. I think my favorite here is the Black Swan/Odile. Her look is dark but delicate, haunting yet elegant.

I think the Odette design has to be my favourite. They're all lovely though, wonderfully soft and delicate.

Brava! These are fantastic! I love that you stayed away from all black/all white, especially on Von Rothbart! Working in the colours of his owl self into the design was very well done.

These are so pretty! I love the touches of different colors that you used. It's very interesting how you chose not to have Odette in a traditional platter tutu, but I think it's a gorgeous design!

Seeing in your eyes
Words can never say the way
Told me in your eyes
Final in a fade
Seeing in your eyes
Seeing in your eyes
Neve really know
Never realise
Silence in your eyes
Silence in your eyes
Never really know
Til its gone away
Never realise
The silence in your eyes
Seen it in your eyes
Seen it in your eyes
Never no more hope away
Final in a fade
Watch her slowly die
Sw it in her eyes
Chocking on a bed
Flowers rotting dead
Seen it in your eyes
Ending in a day
Selence was a away
Seeing in your eyes
I'm seeing through my eyes
Words cannot express
Words cannot express
