Believe me, you did a great job.  I wish I could draw like that, but the only thing I'm good at drawing is water from a well.  ::)

I attempted to draw the 1913 tercentary pic of Alix and OTMA, but unfortunately only Anastasia and Tatiana turned out well, so I scanned them, here they are:

This is going to sound a bit mean but there was already a Romanov fan art thread. Before this one.  Why hasnt anyone bothered putting their pics on it instead??  :-\ ???
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: Rachael89 on May 21, 2007, 02:16:41 AM
Because the other thread was many pages long, it was taking to long to load and so a sequel thread was made, this one, just like there have been many coloured picture threads because the individual threads become too long.

Thanks for your comments Emily and Lynn, your drawings are great too!

Just a quick drawing I did of TATIANA.  I feel so bad as I was trying to finish the ribbon  it went a bit out of bounds so that is why there is extra hair and the nose is hard to draw in crayon.   Other then that I think I did an good job.
Aww she has kissable lips hee hee.

Actually dont want to fight but I have seen some posts that are not G rated.   I have seen some that are like M rated.   I would rate Obezyanka's as maybe PG-13.   So what if they have mentioned being drunk and playing drinking games. I have seen worse posts.  Maybe Obezyanka was drinking coca-cola vodka and getting hypo. LOL that happens to me.
Still love your silly pic Obezyanka.

I don't agree with you over the drunk issues and other things like that are private in my opinion and I KNOW it my actions to choose to  read this topic, but telling people that your drunk makes you look rather stupid (no one not, so no worries) to some people.  I too had (and have) a few wild times ;) ;) but I do not tell them over the internet, most of us here are the ages between 12- up and we must act mature over some issues and not to fight.  ;)


And you right about "PG-13", and they're worse posts, I'll take the """G" Rated"" back, but want I said before that stays.

I didn't think she meant it in a way of what you think mandie.

Yes I agree she just explaining why she drew the picture like that. I do not think their are any children as young as 10 or 9 here either I saw 11 and older. I like the picture also nice !!!. I do not think it is something to make a big deal about. :) Its okay.

A moderator note...
I've been very busy lately, and haven't been able to get on here. It seems that some threads have gotten a little off-topic without moderation, and for that I apologize.

A note on the 'drunk' issue:
I realize that this is a "Having Fun" board, so people are allowed to be silly and whatnot. However, we need to respect and be sensitive to those around us.  Regardless of the age range on this particular board, alcohol is really no laughing matter. There are many families who are broken apart because of alcohol abuse, and it's important to remember that there is a very ugly side to "being drunk". I truly believe it's important that we keep this in mind.
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: Holly on June 30, 2007, 10:20:10 PM
I agree with Laura.
And yes, I personally know young children who read these boards; like my 10 year old niece and her class. So you need to watch your step with what you post and keep it at least PG rated. This is a history forum. Not a place to tell you drunken charades and post pictures where it looks like someone is grabbing a woman's chest (like on another thread on this board). Alcohol isn't funny. Like Laura said, it ruins peoples lives. Believe me, I know this very well. Keep stuff like this in PMs please.

Sorry to spam my pictures of my doll.  ;D

But I put her bow on top of her head and a bit to the side, and it reminded me of young OTMA's hair styles.

Here's a picture (http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j223/ilovemydoll/Elisabeth/8%209%2007/8907_16.jpg), and here's another (http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j223/ilovemydoll/Elisabeth/8%209%2007/8907_17.jpg).  Playing with the pictures made her hair turn out a bright color...  :D

Decided to do actual art this time!   :D

Last night I started on a pixel piece, meaning on the computer I do a picture one dot at a time pretty much.

I chose to do Princess Elisabeth's little playhouse.  It was hard because there aren't many pictures of the house, and what there is, the picture is really small.  :D

Here's my latest!! I felt the urge to do a commemorative portrait since the findings of the remains was released!! Its Alexei and Anastasia (as I believe its her in the grave). It's the photo of them from 1916 during their trip to Mogilev. Enjoy!

Alexei and Anastasia:

Not directly related to the Romanovs, but this is sort of relavent so I'll post it. It's a drawing of a girl (not Marie of Romania) in a gown I found an image of, I would opf drawn Marie wearing it but I'm hopeless at likenesses and I really wanted to draw it!

The real dress:

I've made a couple of drawings of the Romanovs. Not knowing were to post them, I hope this is the place. This is the first time I'm using photobucket, so I'm not sure if everything will go ok.

Artist-historian George Stuart is a big fan of Tsarist Russia.
He has sculpted more than 30 Historical Figures(R) of the period through Stalin.
His website is up and you can get some idea of his Russian Figures at -

Not really, Albert Komarov's album is more about flowers, but I think he did a nice composition there

That's great, Emily! I wish I could do digital paintings. I hope you make more sometime.

Sorry but I really don't understand these cartoon portrayals of Tatiana (or OMA). They look nothing like them and they have strange clothes. It has nothing to do with them and it looks stupid. Tatiana looks like a 30 year old business woman or something.

Oh Holly. I myself must admit I haven't much like for those cartoons, they're a bit too manga or anime or whatever it is for me, and Anastasia looks like a cat....o__o

Of course, they're well done and are visually appealing in that sense!

thank you Holly... maybe i should do one of Anastasia? ;)

i agree with sarushka.. nice things.
but i think that they did it that was was to show their personal views on the girls if they lived today.
remember its art, and art can be anything.

Since I have the pleasure of working in an Art Gallery on the weekends, I've come to the conclusion that art can be appreciated in various ways.
However, there is a line of voicing ones opinion on the pieces and being rude.

Let's try to keep it within the line of maturity  ;)

Yes, I understand art and that it can be viewed in different aspects. I was just stating my opinion on the cartoons.

Emily, please please please do one of Anastasia!! I was going to try to make one of her but I gave up. I don't really get how someone goes about making one. It looks hard. :D

Stating your opinion is fine, but try to use constructive criticism instead of just insulting.

The appealing aspects of art, I suppose, are in the eye of the beholder...I mean sometimes I like to sit down and just draw cartoon-ish OTMA drawings myself.

Par example:

So, I've been wanting a small tattoo dedited to the IF.  I want to have NAOTMAA on it for sure.   I also love Tatiana's quote "God will surely help us, and we will meet again in better times.", and I'm thinking of having that in Russian, but I'd need a correct translation of that.

I think there should be a small picture between the words, so I'm wondering if it should be a crown or a heart...I'm not sure.

Beautiful works, all!

Olga_Maria, your drawings are so good! :D
If you not like yours, you should see mines...
Your's look like real people, mines look like cartoon characters... :P
I wish I could draw people in realistic manner... And you get that! XD

Congrats!

Thanks Denise, Ally, and Proud_Olga for your so flattering comments! O my guh! Thank you sooo much.
Denise, yours are great works, too.
My drawings look like cartoons, too, ha.
I have a drawing of Nastya but she looks like a boy there (I'd show it here in a few days).
P.S. Their faces are so intricate I can't draw them well, likewise the bodies.

Oh please, these are my first attempts of my "Feel-like-Mashka" drawings. I made these with crayons and pastels for approximately 5 hours (the first one) and 3 hours (for the second one). Due to those reasons, they look too awful.
Don't tease me.

For your picture anything bigger then 400x400

My scanner again is not working but the paper which i used is QUITE big not A4 ...This was done by me for my mother's last birthday she put it in frame and liked it very much.... so since my scanner again broke down i took photo of my drawing....

Splendid - about watercolors, beware - I tried, and it is not my style -- technique is very hard to me, considering that paper I use is not appropriate for that.

Fantastic works Elly!, about the roses I have to agree with nena, once I tried myself too with watercolors but, on the contrary of what one can think, it's not very easy to use watercolors, your drawing it's already perfect, you don't need watercolors on it.

You've got  a natural talent that could take you places, I'm telling you.  You're not an adult yet, are you?  if you're still young, make a career out of your drawings.  You might be the next Norman Rockwell (I'm obviously a major fan of your work).

Norman Rockwell... that's quite a compliment.  It's nice to have a major fan!  ;)  I'm actually twenty-five, and sketching is just something I do for fun; I've never done anything serious with it.

I usually try hiding the legs behind gowns but the instructor has been on my case about it  :-[ I did it her way and I hated the results. Same problems with the hands. Just can't seem to get the hands and feet right...

I really want to sketch the court dresses...I'm hoping my instructor will allow me to do some Victorian/Edwardian fashions for our next project *fingers crossed*

hahaha, no, it's not Anna:) I was just sketching along some characters, and it happened that the lady was put near N and A, just like that. I first, I wanted to cut her out, but I thought she's kinda funny, so she stayed:) but she has nothing in common with the Romanovs, I think...

Before this continues to even greater lengths, I just have to say something. This thread is for art by Romanov fans of Romanovs; the fact the art is by Romanov fans implies its content is Romanov related. As greatly skilled as you may be, many of the recent sketches and other drawings being posted here have nothing to do with Romanovs. At all. If you are indeed hoping to display your talents and get feedback, I would propose making a DeviantArt account. In the mean time can we keep the images strictly to NOATMAA and their Russian relatives?

VERY nice Lisa!!

Did you use pastels? Color pencils?

I think my favorite is the colored portrait of Nicholas.

I think you did a fantastic job. And thank you for the compliment. I'm currently retrying the sketch. Fingers Crossed for better results.

OMG, I am simply amazed, it it outstanding, marvellous, splendid! But I remember seeing the 2nd one of Heir, while still being a newbie here, sometime in late 2006. I did one drawing of Alexei in uniform as well, and since I don't have a scanner, I will have to upload photographed drawing, it is only remaining solution I am aware of.

Ashanti01, it does look like Irena! Take heart, no one here will seriously judge you : D I'd also like to apologize for my somewhat sharp words right after your previous post, I hope you didn't think it was directly aimed at you.

And Lisa...you always have produced the most exquisite pieces. I was thrilled to see several new ones (to me at least).

I can't help myself, but if anyone is interested, you should check out the "featured artist" on Laura Mabee's website: http://www.frozentears.org/Pages/Artist.html (you should also follow the link provided on the page!). Lisa herself was once the featured artist on the site.

I usually don't try to sketch familiar people, I do much better ( i believe) when I do it free style, just sketching whatever pops into mind. For some reason Irina is very difficult for me. But thanks for the encouraging words, I will probably be retrying to sketch her when I'm in class tomorrow night.

Well I didn't work on Irina, instead I shifted my attention to other royals.

I tried to sketch Victoria Melita from an picture I saw on the Hessen archives. I think it turned out better than Irina. I'm still not completely satisfied but it's a start.

They are, and they aren't : D All of the faces are actually based off of their 1914/ 1913 portraits. I did however use the hairstyles from the 1916 ones, with the exception of Anastasia of course. Their hair is meant to be about as short is it would have been at the time of their executions. Since the time I took these photos I've actually given Anastasia's hair some remodeling and it looks far better and more natural.

Very good, especially Tatiana :)

Thank you terribly! It's funny though, because I actually like Tatiana the best myself. With Anastasia in a close second ; )

Amazing work, friend. Just keep on it! I like Anastasia, the way you got her shape. It is incredible.

But if you intend on doing icons, I must give you some advices, may I --- icons must not have 3rd dimension, the feeling of existing the 3rd dimension, SO, no traces of shadows, and not the black colour at all. Golden, Blue and Red color would be wanted.  And usually no profiles, so the frontal position of faces, but My Gosh...I understand. These are some rules about drawing icons, in Orthodoxy. So, don't get this bad! *:-o*

Your kind words are duly appreciated : D You wouldn't believe how many times I had to erase the eyes on all of them, I also feel they're one of the most important and difficult aspects of a portrait. I'm thrilled you feel I was successful in achieving them though : )

Thank you very much Nena! And no worries, your advice is more than welcome. I'm actually trying to give this portrait an icon "feel" more than an actual depiction of one, mostly because of the limitations and rules you provided. It will be more portrait than icon, with the halos (being each a different traditional colour and surrounded by gold) being the only really religious aspect. Anyways I hope it meets your approval when it's finished! : )

This is something a bit different. It's a ceramic tile. I rolled out the clay into a small rectangle and using a pin,
made a drawing of Nicholas, Alexi and Tatiana from the 1916 series of photos. Once the image was made,
the tile is set aside so the clay can thoroughly dry. Then the tile is painted with different glazes to add the colour
and finally it's fired at 2000 decrees.

That's so cool! I really like how you used the lines, it's very unique-looking.

Here's my latest!! I felt the urge to do a commemorative portrait since the findings of the remains was released!! Its Alexei and Anastasia (as I believe its her in the grave). It's the photo of them from 1916 during their trip to Mogilev. Enjoy!

I have a poem for Romanov artists everywhere.
For everyone who has picked up a brush , made a video or colored a photo.
 

Only art can
assuage my grief
not time,nor tide,
nor once held belief

only art can
open wide
and take me
where you
now abide

only art can 
ease the heart.
and smooth
my way
...only art

Three months in the making! I'm so grateful it turned out this well, It HAD to be my best...for them.
It has been a powerful experience bringing  the Big Pair back into being, even if it is only on canvas with  paint

I'm also grateful to everyone on AP form for their generosity with thier knowledge, their love of the Romanovs and general good humor!

I have another photo bucket album for those interested in the process
and what goes into creating such art work . It has been like mountain climbing!
I'm a tile maker who decided to paint the Big Pair. It wasn't pretty for some time! lol!
but if you keep  working, you'll get there

Thank you!  You are a fine artist yourself, so that means alot. You understand that art is a  mystery even to the artist.  Something  is not there one moment , but is there there the next...how did it happen?  Actually I found painting far easier...if you look at the photo bucket album of the process...you'll see it was a( very)  long series of corrections... and thank you Dru ! Glad you enjoyed it.

I-TsarevichAlexei13  remarkable work ! I find line drawing harder than painting,
because you can't make mistakes! I made many! Glad everyone enjoyed the
painting  of the Big Pair. It was a joy to do.

Thank you!  You are a fine artist yourself, so that means alot. You understand that art is a  mystery even to the artist.  Something  is not there one moment , but is there there the next...how did it happen?  Actually I found painting far easier...if you look at the photo bucket album of the process...you'll see it was a( very)  long series of corrections... and thank you Dru ! Glad you enjoyed it.

You're too kind, really : D I feel I quite understand just what you mean, you work and slave aimlessly trying to aspire to something, and suddenly the way you've shaded or a stroke of paint catches your attention, and your vision begins to take shape! I just looked at the series of WIP's in the photobucket album, truly a labour of love! You have my respect : D

And where on earth did this plethora of talent suddenly explode from?! Great work, EVERYone!

Exactly. An important part of art is knowing when you have caught something and STOPPING....Tatiana's final face just appeared as I was painting! How? Lord knows...but I knew to stop painting when it did. lol!

I just looked at the series of WIP's in the photobucket album, truly a labour of love! You have my respect : D
Thank you. I have done ceramics for 40 years and it greatly helped over the three months of working that I didn't think of myself as a painter. Because my ego identification wasn't in paint...making so many mistakes wasn't as frustrating as it could well have been. If this struggle was in clay, I don't think I could have finished it. But it was in paint and I really didn't expect it to go well right off...I didn't know what to expect and I enjoyed that a great deal. Art was new again. I kept a photo record in part because it was so new. I'm explaining this at length and posted the WIP album to encourage people to just keep working! Also to expose the myth that art just "happens" and if it doesn't ,something is "wrong".LOL! No. Art goes though a gestation period and is messily born like everything else. So go at it! But yes,the painting was indeed a labor of love...the girls just HAD to have my very best. It's a joy to share it with others on the AP form!

Thank you very much Shawn for your kind words...emotion is indeed  the drive behind the painting. I cannot spare them the cellar...but I can make sure, to the best of my ability, they are SEEN and treasured. Bringing vibrant colour to the black and white image is part of that .Art is not photography. Rather than capturing one image in time, art incorporates many images within what seems to be one. Also the viewer has a vital role in art. Really the last image is in the viewers mind, not on the canvas. What art does is spark the creation of that image.

I wanted to post this you tube video on this thread and say this gentleman's 2 videos helped me a great deal in this project and others may find the videos useful too.  You see he gets down the dark and the light first and begins  by sketching in the features...one can make corrections, I did, many!...but you need something down on the canvas to correct. I found other you tube instructions really come ons to buy their DVD lol! ...this guy teaches one something .

Thanks everyone! Yes, you're right OTMAAfan, that's what it originally said but I cropped it out. On the right is something saying it's to my sister. I made it for her. She liked it!
Can't wait to see your drawing, Dust_of_History! Who do you think you'll draw?
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: Naslednik Norvezhskiy on March 09, 2010, 12:57:49 AM
Talented work, everyone!

If somebody longs to draw something Imperial and OTMAA-related, but aren't very good at drawing people (I am not good at drawing at all!), I think OTMAA's coats of arms could be wonderful themes for drawings:

Olga's arms (http://www.heraldicum.ru/russia/family/family6.gif)
Tatiana's arms (http://www.heraldicum.ru/russia/family/family3.gif)
Maria's arms (http://www.heraldicum.ru/russia/family/family4.gif)
If you want an easier version, their small arms are just the shield with the crown on top and the order surrounding it, without the mantle/coat/tent and the "supporters" (the two warriors).
Alexei's arms (http://www.heraldicum.ru/russia/family/family9.gif)
(Close-up of the Emperor's Great Arms for a better view of the smaller shields, which are clickable! (http://www.gerb.bel.ru/pages/russia/imperia_big.htm))
I don't know if Anastasia had arms, perhaps she was too young when these arms were granted in 1911. Alexei, although younger, but the Tsesarevich, was granted arms a few months before his birth!

When drawing heraldry, it's OK to draw your own version of the figures, as long as it e.g. clearly is a black, crowned two-headed eagle with heads facing away from each other and holding a scepter in the left claw and an orb in the right etc.

Post by: Dust_of_History on March 09, 2010, 07:09:54 AM
Can't wait to see your drawing, Dust_of_History! Who do you think you'll draw?

I haven't decided yet. I think I'll draw a portrait of Olga but I still need some practice. ;-) I prefer drawing only with a pencil. I'm not very good at using colors.

@ Fyodor Petrovich
Great idea but even the arms would be a challenge for me. ^^

 
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: abbigail on March 09, 2010, 03:12:40 PM
That's a great idea, Fyodor Petrovich...it sounds very complicated!

Dust_of_History...yeah, I prefer just a pencil myself. Do you ever use charcoal pencils? I love those.
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: Dust_of_History on March 09, 2010, 04:40:53 PM
Yes charcoal pencils are fantastic. If you use them correctly, you can draw stunning realistic looking pictures. But you have to know where to draw shadow and light to achieve a realistic look. Using charcaol pencils is the supreme discipline and your hands are black afterwards. :-)

Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: abbigail on March 09, 2010, 04:54:34 PM
Ooh, I used watercolor pencils to color in a pic of Maria Nikolaevna (here: http://soleit.deviantart.com/art/Maria-Romanov-110533345). They're so cool. A little hard for me to use though.
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: rosieposie on March 09, 2010, 05:02:07 PM
I try to use it lightly so then I can use my brush to work out the colors.

Oh, you are too modest! If you can draw such eyes....

The great thing about heraldry is that it's only two-dimensional. (The arms themselves always are. Though "trappings" such as the mantle are sometimes rendered three-dimensional). So you don't need to worry about shading, perspective and such!

Yes, it's great that heraldy is two-dimensional, because I have often problems with shading. I think the difficulty lies in the details and the colors. The arms are full of details which are quite hard to draw but with some patience it's feasable.

I think it does look like him...if he went on a diet! Seems he was quite a  stocky fellow. You caught his eyes. This is almost a soul portrait of Alexander Ivanovich. I'm glad he and his wife had at least 7 years together...so many couples had no time then

Really? He didn't strike me as especially stocky, but then again it's just his face. Was he, in real life?
Very true :( and 7 years isn't even all that much anyway.

Post by: blessOTMA on March 22, 2010, 08:40:47 PM
in the  1907 photo with his wife on thier wedding day, he's not stocky...but in later photos( 1912 etc) when convorting
with the IF , he's bigger.

Is it even proper to post this here? It's a video about my Big Pair painting that I posted here a few weeks ago.
It came out pretty well and I believe other  Romanov artists should think about incorporating their art pieces along with
the reference photos they are based on in a video...particularly if you have been doing for awhile...it would make a nice  presentation

 It never stops revealing itself as you paint and look. I found something new nearly every session

She most likely got the color from first source descriptions of OTMA. 
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: blessOTMA on April 11, 2010, 11:40:25 AM
Ann you are psychic...actually I was about to post that  Marie's hair looks more red in the photo than in the painting. I don't know why that is so. I used red and yellow mixed in the brown for her highlights, but as I say ...the result, most likely due to my questionable photography skills, is it appeared more red here than I intended...or is ...so in the picture, it's a good deal  browner. How I arrived at the colour? After awhile one can get a sense from the grade of  the gray tones...the photos aren't strictly b/w, they are shades of grey as well. It can't be exact of course, but it can be close...one hopes. But rosieposie is correct as well . One reads everything and  puts all that into the mix. In this regard, Tatiana's eyes are a real puzzler. I have read of them being "  amber"  and " light grey"  and " dark grey," ...so which do you go with? I went with light grey in the sun light and dark grey in shadow. Thanks for the question!
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: abbigail on April 11, 2010, 05:09:09 PM
This is slightly off-topic but...I had an idea similar to that today, blessOTMA...meaning the shades of gray and colors and stuff. Has anyone ever found modern photos taken by old cameras (meaning cameras used at OTMA's time) on the Internet? I'd really like to see how much the lighting generally used to take photographs back then compares to lighting used in modern times, but using the same old cameras. If we saw the modern photograph, the same one, taken by both a modern camera and the old one, maybe we could see how "off" we are in determining what people looked like by comparing them.
If this makes no sense, tell me...I was just wondering very much about it and think the idea is pretty interesting, since I hadn't thought about it since reading these recent posts.
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: blessOTMA on April 11, 2010, 06:24:52 PM
abbgail it would be interesting experiment...but one would need a camera from that time, film  and the whole set up. It would be great to set that up, then  a take pictures of things and then compare the b/w pictures with color photos of the  items., side by side. One way I make educated guesses is, to look at item whose colors we know and compare them to the b/w photos from back in the day. For a example when we look at Olga's Hussar uniform in color, the blue and the red seem equally as bright. But in the b/w photo , the red reads much darker. So it's part research, part reasonable guess....as to how a colour will read in a b/w photo...then comes the taking a leap part. lol!
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: abbigail on April 11, 2010, 06:29:46 PM
That is true, especially about the uniforms etc...I hope to find something like that online in the future.

You know what I'd really like to do? Take photos of people with an old camera! It would be so strange to see yourself in an early-20th-century photograph!
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: blessOTMA on April 11, 2010, 06:44:39 PM
One can really only even try to reproduce the photos with an old camera, the type of  film they had , the whole bit. The lenses were even different. But I'm sure somebody, somewhere   is doing this! It 's too much fun for it not be done! lol!

I hope you draw more of Alexei.

I want to get a better idea of how I could modernize him, too.

Thanks! You're the first kind person I've met on here! I will!

Really?  Great!

I assume that you've seen some of the OTMA art that I've commissioned other people to do (like in my avatar)!

HI all again. :)

This is not a happy, post. It's more  of a somber, and scary post. It's of the Imperial Family. I haven't gotten Dr. Botkin, Alexei Trupp, or Ivan Kharitonov in there yet. I am working on it but.. its a work in progress.

I title it : "The Last Portrait"

enjoy, and if anyone would like to try their hand at colouring it, please pm me here on AP. :)

Das vidanya!

Thankyou Gorseheart, Tasia, and abbigail.

I know it is a sad image to see someone draw, alot of people wonder how come I can draw with so much raw emotion, they way they all look anxious and tired.. and just-woken up. Im still in process in drawng it to complete it.

this is what i believe they all looked like that night.

there's so many renditions of it.

God Bless the IMperial Famiyl and God Bless the Tsar and God Bless us all! :)

Before this continues to even greater lengths, I just have to say something. This thread is for art by Romanov fans of Romanovs; the fact the art is by Romanov fans implies its content is Romanov related. As greatly skilled as you may be, many of the recent sketches and other drawings being posted here have nothing to do with Romanovs. At all. If you are indeed hoping to display your talents and get feedback, I would propose making a DeviantArt account. In the mean time can we keep the images strictly to NOATMAA and their Russian relatives?

Gorseheart, as much as we DO genuinely appreciate and adore your Romanov related art pieces of Alexei, I would kindly ask that we keep this thread about Romanov related artwork. Try and keep other work you do to your DeviantArt page, it will be duly appreciated. Don't by any means take this as an attack, I just wanted to draw your attention to this fact.

I realized saying something would have appeared severe, and I'm not on some personal vendetta to bash people, but posting non-related artwork has already become a small problem in the past. I just wanted to remind people to try and keep this thread related to it's original title and purpose, tis' all.

Thank you! I guess I shouldn't put up anymore on here, it seems as though I haven't the need to draw them because rude comments come from many of the discussions. Everytime I think of the Romanovs, I think of all those comments and I decide not to draw them. Thanks again and you're right, I'm deeply ofended and hurt by many of THESE types of comments. I already stated that it was non-Romanov, but misconcepted it by the title. ART by Romanov fans. I won't do it again, but next time, lets not be angry and scorn. Thanks.

Post by: rosieposie on June 25, 2010, 12:28:43 AM
Not bad Tuna ears,   Why is there a Christian cross and not Orthodox?
Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: LauraO on June 25, 2010, 05:20:54 AM
well when i drew it i didn't intend it to be anyone in particular- but i suppose it looks most like alix, so its kinda who you interpret it as. i did it roughly one saturday afternoon so to be honest i don't know why i didn't do an orthodox cross- mind you alix was a protestant originally. Yes, that bloos, it was the last thing i added at the end, i did it with red ink and basically spread it by blowing in a straw. The water thing on the far left is kinda meant to represant peterhof, and underneath the blood is an outline of the russian empire as it was , ther roman numeral 2 is obviously to represant Nicholas, and tha hand with the cross i did draw to be alix's hand. the flowers don't particularly symbolize anything, but i just wanted to show the glory anf beauty of Romanov rule and the russian empire, and then the blood just to show the terrible memory and horror that covered the original ideas of Russia pre 1918. the writing is saying in russian roughly an alix quote "he is hated because we love him" on rasputin, but the translation could be dodgy.

I think I got it right. Alexei is spelled Aleksey in Russian, so the cryllic is correct. Plus the backwards N with the swoop means Y. But thanks anyways.

I think those look excellent Gorseheart, very promising potential! Do you draw and sketch often? What medium do you use, is it charcoal?

Thank you! I draw all the time. It's summer break and I get bored often. :) I just had my first year of art, but it might be my last for a while, but I hope to aim for animation. Uh, I don't know.... ^^; I just got a charcoal pencil, but I usually use Graphite or Watercolor. I also use color pencil. Sorry for rambling, ^^; Do you draw?

And I do draw in fact (if you look on previous pages you can see some of my posts); admittedly I have a deviantArt account as well. I think you have a good hand with charcoal, I've never really been any good with anything other than pencil; I'm amateur at best with coloured pencils mind you. Are you in college/ university now? What is it exactly you're taking.

For all intensive purposes and shameless self-promotion, you can see my account here: http://www.keeganyoung.deviantart.com/ When you get into university you'll more than likely have the opportunity to learn Russian, most institutions will provide a wide range of language courses. But good luck in the meantime.

I make big files of the paintings so people may print them for their own , personal  use...but I keep the rights...friends have told me to say this and so now I will.  I keep all rights to my paintings.

Thank you! Your comment means much. This is the reference photo. His face is somewhat indistinct in it...so I also used the photo of AN where he's with his mother  and  Alix is in her nurses uniform . Alexei  has his photo taken with the big pair the same day. I used that for details, but used this photo  for the shape of his head , jaw, etc.  So it would look right with the rest .  I was going to do the trees, but decided they would be a distraction.

"Where are the flowers, the fair young flowers, that lately sprang and stood.
In brighter light and softer airs, a beauteous sisterhood?
Alas! they all are in their graves, the gentle race of flowers
Are lying in their lowly beds, with the fair and good of ours.
The rain is falling where they lie, but the cold November rain
Calls not from out the gloomy earth the lovely ones again."

"And then I think of one who in her youthful beauty died,
The fair meek blossom that grew up and faded by my side.
In the cold moist earth we laid her, when the forests cast the leaf,
And we wept that one so lovely should have a life so brief:
Yet not unmeet it was that one, like that young friend of ours,
So gentle and so beautiful, should perish with the flowers."

- abstracts from "The Death of the Flowers" by William Cullen Bryant

Finally done. I mean, what's a year anyways? In dedication to the brief lives of:

Olga Nicholaievna 1895-1918

I took some pictures of my best Romanov sketches to share with you all...here they are:  :-*

(http://a.imageshack.us/img401/6244/olgasketch.jpg) Olga in 1914
(http://a.imageshack.us/img203/5322/anastasiasketch.jpg) an elfish Anastasia
(http://a.imageshack.us/img413/3176/littleanastasiasketch.jpg) Anastasia in 1904--sorry it's a bit fuzzy
(http://a.imageshack.us/img413/4885/mariasketch.jpg) Maria in 1906--drat, fuzzy again!
(http://a.imageshack.us/img828/8383/littlepairsketch.jpg)  little pair on the Standart. if you look close at Nastya, she's rolling her eyes a bit--it wasn't on purpose!
(http://a.imageshack.us/img828/298/anastasiasketchwhatif.jpg) a "what if" drawing of Anastasia. the black thing is supposed to be a purse, but it looks more like a camera!

You already know how much I love it.

You draw the Romanovs the most realistically. And beautifully.

Yes. I know how much you love it :3

You already know how much I love it.

I have to agree with Holly :) Wonderful work.I wonder is painting only your hobby or something more?

I actually didn't paint this, it's done in pencil and I fiddled with the skin on photoshop a bit. Here's a more honest look at what it's like in person: http://www.keeganyoung.deviantart.com/#/d2vupok


(http://i183.photobucket.com/albums/x232/KeeganYoung/th_OTMA-1.jpg) (http://s183.photobucket.com/albums/x232/KeeganYoung/?action=view&current=OTMA-1.jpg)

Astonishing and amazing!!!!! You must have prints made of this! imo
Keegan, in all seriousness...this needs to be a print. Truly amazing

Thank you so much Anne! Yes, I'm working on getting it done : D

Honestly amazing Keegan.
Fabulous work!

Laura, thank you so very much : ))))))))))

That is indeed very lovely! Truly exquisite. How long did it take you to draw?
I love the way they look so real and sort of glowing. Their blouses look like real silk! I also love Tatiana's little smile, and their heights. The background makes me sad...  :'(

I've been working on this since last August, but for months it's sat there as just a sketch on paper. I finally got around to do some serious shading when I got off school back in April. So the majority of the work was done over a 5 month period. Tatiana seems to be most people's favourite, even my own. I was so incredibly pre-occupied with worrying about their heights when drawing this, as I thought I'd made Tatiana too tall. But I found one picture of them taken in late 1917 or early 1918 that showed them pretty much at those same heights so I felt a little better. The background is very much meant to be sad, a reminder of what happened and what was lost.

It's just splendid one! Well done!

Thank you Nena!

My gooness! Since last August! Well, it shows, how much hard work you put into such a lovely piece of artwork.
And that's excatly what I thought, their heights look just like in the Olga-smiling-bald-heads picture!

Keegan, for some reason my computer doesn't like that art site generally! lol! But I was on your account  long enough to see the drawing without photo shop and love that too. I LIKE how big it is  as well and totally agree that bigger is better when doing Romanov portraits. I find I need room to create a  likeness.  I'm glad to learn you are doing something about a print of this piece! I want one!

I must admit, the original photo really shows not so much, though I could have done it bit detailed/better. Ahh, I am satisfied with the result. (This one is scanned, since I had posted the same taken by my cam).

You're right, the original picture doesn't show much detail, because it's a full shot, but your drawing looks quite like the photo!

I really look forward to see your Olga Nicholaievna, blessOTMA !!!!

Well, Keegan, I must admit that after I did Tatiana, I got demoralized since it turned out bad, and I got no will to continue. At least, not yet. However that photo is so unclear so I can't see much of their expressions. Or should I choose another photo of them?  Thank you on your compliment, it means a lot! :D

It's of Nicholas II, and his son on board the Shtandart, a well-known foto of them. I wish I could find it again lol..

But here it is, I guess you would consider it a line drawing, or yeah.. lol The pencil drawing looked A TON more better, then the permanent marker, but the marker brought the detail out better :P

Yes, I, too, go back and forth. for a while I was 'off' the Romanovs, and then I discovered Angel on the Square at the library, and it was stronger than ever! (that's when I discovered here.) Nowadays they're always there, but they vanish for a day or so about every week...  :P  Sometimes I have OTMA days, sometimes I have Judy Garland days, sometimes both, or neither, and another of my interests. Last week I had a Sissi day...  today it's both...  :)

I LOVE the work on this page! The lines are so delicate...Tsarevich Alexei, you use a really cool drawing style (which I've probably said before...it's very true).

Don't not have anything to post today, but we're doing "altered books" in art class (changing/decorating with paint and cutouts & stuff to a specific theme) and mine's based on old black-and-white photographs...about 8 pages are required and the Romanovs are getting their own page, of course :). I'm going to post pictures of that page when it's done.

I am working on Tatiana Nikolaievna drawing. However, here is the sketch:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/th_P1090899.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/?action=view&current=P1090899.jpg)

Paper dimensions -- 11.4 x 16.3 inches, it seems I will have to do the another shoulder of her on other piece of paper.  Use HB, 2B pencils. (And a one more, there is no mark on it).

Here is what I have done so far:

(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/th_P1090901.jpg) (http://s185.photobucket.com/albums/x139/nemanjapr/?action=view&current=P1090901.jpg)

I took the photos with my cam. Once I finish it, it will be scanned. However, I made a little mistake in shading her chin. It will take some time till I am completely done. I am still 'sketching'. :-D

Well, basically you just take a large hardback book (glue some of the pages together so it's not floppy) and re-decorate the pages according to your theme. It's like making a new book.

The other pages will be of other people from history that I'm interested in, like Rudolph Valentino and other actors, Vaslav Nijinsky and Anna Pavlova, Arthur Rimbaud...and others too that I can't think of right now :D

nena ! I love where you are going with Tatiana! Keep at it. Marvelous and amazing already !!

I have new found sympathy for the photographers who took Tatiana's picture during her life . I have tried for days to take a decent photo  of my TN portrait... and finally got one I feel I can post. It's easy to say, but I think it's better than my photograph !

 However here is my Tatiana Nikolaevna  and  her video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3NpGULt44g  showing the process.

and now my OTMA , 1914  portrait group is complete

OTMA 1914

blessOTMA, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL work! I'm so glad to see it completed, and what an accomplishment it is. I think it may be my favourite of the lot (not that I don't like all of them immensely). Her eyes are very well done, and her expression is captured quite perfectly. A round of applause to you.

Thank you Keegan! It means a great deal to me you should like them so well.  Being a Romanov artist yourself, you know it's a labor of love. But it's  funny, the paintings are like my children ...I can't pick a favorite! lol! I will now embark on a large rendition of Marie , Olga and Tatiana dressed for KR's funeral. It will take some time , but I so look forward to it.  Thank you again!

Magdalena you are at a very interesting point, where it's time for the lines. It's like getting ready to dive into a pool
... one has to decide when and were to take the plunge. I would say approach it freely, you can always undo it....
and  you might gain a happy accident :). Much of art is recognizing something has happened and keeping  it ,
 rather than consciously making it happen. It looks great so far!

Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: blessOTMA on October 01, 2010, 10:17:10 AM
Magdalena, look at your reference photo as much if not more than your work. One can lose their way other wise. Infuse yourself with the reference photo....that's where your inspiration is. And I would say just do it...this is on computer right? Save a file of what you have and then make a number of attempts... you can always go back to the current file...I post my videos to show people the  art is made in a mess...it's not perfect, it's one long correction. By the end of the picture , I have painted their faces many times. And I can do the last one because I know the way...having traveled it so much before. If it had to be right from the first, I couldn't do it. What you have now is quite good! Also think  about using a dark brown for your lines. It's less harsh than black. But try not to judge yourself , even about how long it is taking!

It's very good! But you know the eyes remind me of Tatiana's   more than Olga's.. look at the bottom of her eyes again. They are quite different than TN's...if you change the drawing a bit  to reflect what you see in a close up, you might see an improvement in the likeness ... the right eye is more like Olga's than the left imo.  But as I say, it's very good! This is just a  small suggestion. But I think you have been drawing for awhile! You have a nice style  :)

Post by: Missy-T on October 27, 2010, 11:57:40 AM
BlessOTMA, I guess you're right! When I've got time I will change it. I think I will put some more shadow below the left eye, it may be a small change, but I hope it will be enough.
Thanks for the advise, it's nice to get some from such an artist!

I based the drawing off a picture from Livadia from when she's standing in the arbor of Glycinia. It's in the Romanov Family Album I think....
Exactly...while they were staying  at Livadia when the photo was taken , the photo was taken at a villa ruin called Oreanda   ...Yale album  3. I love that one particularly and the one with Tatiana taken the same day because they are stunning course...but also because  they seem to be arranging themselves as if they are in paintings... the type of paintings their palaces were full off...and now I 'm putting them in paintings.  When I see these photos I have to wonder : what if there was no WW1?...the photos are from May of 1914.Here's another from that day you may like to do =)

I will definitely be doing one from these 1914 photos  at some point ...because they are so astonishingly gorgeous...I mean their beauty is like a brilliant light. ...but there's other paintings ahead of that ...such as  finishing the current  1915 OTM funeral one and then there is an Anastasia one, then finally, one of Alix and Nicky...even before I get to Olga in the Russian court dress...so lots of painting FUN ahead =)

 I recently read Dr. Botkins's last letter, addressed to his brother, Alexander . It was found in Ipatiev House when the town fell to the White forces in 1918. I was so moved by Dr. Botkin's letter and what this man says , I had to make a video. But there are so few photos of Dr. Bokin that I know of, that I decided to made drawings of him especially for this video to illustrate his letter. They are done with pencil and watercolours, then scanned. I might have to do a graphic novel!

Here are some of the drawings and  the video link

Title: Re: Art by Romanov fans III
Post by: blessOTMA on June 23, 2011, 12:09:40 PM
Thank you Holly!  When Olga's eyes popped out of the canvas...I really don't know who was more surprised...her or me!  Her eyes are  95% in shadow but are painted  lighter than they would be would be normally  because even though they are in in shadow, sunlight is being reflected up into them from the ground . This is how you create the sense of the person being there in 3-D

Nicolá!! getting an "absolutely historically accurate"  from you about the stars is a such feather in my cap!!  Thank you!  I painted  them fairly loosely  to give the sense of them flashing in the sun ....Indeed in the photo, Olga's face is splashed with the reflection of Marie's star by dozens of points of light. I didn't include them...but I did add the bright spot her own star's reflection is causing at her waist

Post by: blessOTMA on July 20, 2011, 08:50:53 AM
Excellent start!! Keep going. It's helpful to take the photo it's based on and do stuff like look at the ends of AN's mouth and then stright up.
What does that line go though and does your pictor do the same....see where the end of the ears are  on the photo and draw a mental line across his face ...does that match your picture? You will amazed how this sort of checking  helps . Also what  seems the problem may not be. It maybe something next to it ....look around a problem area, not just where you think it's messed up...so often I find the problem is else where and it just effecting  where I'm looking.

One is not finished until they are satisfied. If you don't like them, then keep on . I don't paint nearly as much as much as I correct what I have done ...and I'm still correcting months later. Well , give it a think. I don't know the photo of the two children, so can't say ...but this AN is  very good....but if you look carefully at each of AN's  features,  I believe you will see more you can do...and attain more from your picture. My painting are always asking more of me ...to reach for more,  to dare for more...and it IS river boat gabling to risk what one has to perhaps achieve more...but after saying all that, I think it's good now ...the eyes and head shape particularly. I have a tip that helps. I put  clear plastic over where I believe I can improve something and try it on the plastic. If it works, great, then I do it on the painting ...but if it doesn't , I haven't lost anything =)

I was thinking of doing one of the others when I had free time.... Sorry that his face is warped too, I was going off of my tablet

P.S. Would this be allowed in the Romanov paintings thread?

I did a quick drawing of Nicholas and was surprised how stern his expression turned out...but you know gentle Nicholas could look very stern if he had a mind to.

Here's a photo when he's giving  a withering glance to Olga...one can see her "humble snub" lowered
 in what seems to be  contrition ...she might have made a brash  remark that displeased her father....not impossible lol!

and then playing around with filters on the old Mac,
I accidentally created this psychedelic Nicholas...which I almost  like better lol!

psychedelic - having the vivid colors and bizarre patterns associated with psychedelic states; "a psychedelic painting"

But friends have begged me to put some kind of watermark on my painting files before posting on the web and so reluctantly, I have. ...Sadly, I can't figure out how to do it in  text without it being on her face!

What I find so impressive is that this is really a definitive video of Anastasia you've made with or without the painting. And then of course the painting itself is fabulous! It's superb how you tied the two together and built up the anticipation while showing photos and video from the Imp's different life stages. Then we climax with the portrait...a masterstroke!

I did a picture of NAOTMAA with Copic markers, but due to the dimensions I had to capture it in two photos which unfortunately are slightly blurred. And I did this picture when I was just getting acquainted with their faces, so...
Anyway, enough self-deprecating. Here are the links to the picture:
