NAOTMAA Requests Anyone?
« on: August 06, 2007, 10:40:45 PM »
If you are already familiarized with my artwork, well then you know I LOVE drawing the NAOTMAA! For those who haven't, please do check:  http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php/topic,9469.0.html  I've been meaning to do a new Romanov piece since my memorial portrait of their execution, and can't decide. So I wondered if any of you had any beloved photographs you'd love to so me draw! I pray I don't come off as conceited, if not many people reply this should be deleted so as not to take up space.

I would love to see a drawing of little Alix or one of little Elisabeth of Hesse. I have read that an old man wrote that he loved to see the little Princess go to school from the castle at Darmstadt on foot with her schoolbag over her shoulder, in a sailor dress, whistling while she was walking. If you can draw that scene- I would be very thankful. ;)

Hmm that sounds like an interesting idea!  :)

I just found this topic and I was wondering if you could draw that picture of Olga and Anastasia?
Olga is:
Not looking at the camera
Appears to be reading

Nastya is:
Holding Olenka's book
Looking at the camera
And it looks like she is wearing some sort of robe or kimono

Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

I've always liked this one but don't see it much around here...




What a generous idea, Keegan! :) I like your art a lot, especially this one--

Wow!
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...
And when you are hungry or thirsty, there is someone who drives you away.

I really like the picture of Alexei and Anastasia around 1907 holding hands in some sort of walking outfits, or such. and also the one of Olga, from the same session, i think it is. just a sugestion, i'm sure you are very busy with the other pictures, but sometime i think they would make a great drawing, especially the one of Anastasia and Alexei.
