Mon Pierrot by Stygians-Fool Mon Pierrot by Stygians-Fool
Actually my first real proper drawing with colored pencils. For more detail of what I used, go here: [link] <3 It's worth it I promise.

Jest Rant:

Pierrots mean the world to me. As with fools and jesters. I'm not going to go into too many details, but this is an important drawing to me. I also used minor reference: [link]
Oh, and so you know, these pierrot portraits used to be popular once so it is a childhood like memory for me. I do believe that he is also a he :)

Big apologies for again sizing it tiny like and mass watermark spamming but this is one of my prides and I can't stand the dA watermark lol

I know parts of his anatomy is off so there's no need to mention thanks, I already know :)

Drew this last year, its still undergoing hiatus but I think I've done enough for now. I refused to submit this here the last time, so enjoy :heart:

In truth, this one strikes me more as being Harlequin than Pierrot. The hat, most of the hair showing and all... If it had been a girl, then possibly Pierrette... I definitely see the M. Fujita influence in it. Very lovely piece. *Nods*

I love both harlequins and Pierrots so that would be where the hat comes from. Thank you! :)

Perhaps this is a new "breed" then! A Pierriquin or a Harliot! :D

Hahah! Most definitely :XD: There is such a blurred line between "normal" and "creative" these days that I don't think anything ever fits into one category

He looks so cute! Nyaa~ I wann ahug him >w< I ♥ pierrots
I wanna print it and hang it up in meh special Pierrot/Jesters wall :D
The details are amazing! I love the eye and the colors blend so well!

Are they special colored pencils like prisma or something? Or just roseart/crayola Wal*Mart kind?

Hello! I'm sorry for replying so late-- I haven't been logging on dA in order to concentrate on uni work @-@ Sorry! :(

And thank you-- I adore pierrots too :) Unfortunately I'm not allowing prints, but home personal use is ok-- it can go on your wall so long as the watermarks remain where they are :)

This was done with normal, Wal*Mart kinds lol. Crayola maybe? Although expensive pencils are impressive (like prisma), it depends on how you use them as well. I was also using some Derwents for this, but they actually ruined parts of the drawing >.< And so I stopped using them :P

lol its fine. I understand XD
I never would take off the watermark Nyaa~ Thats just stupid, but I guess some people actually do that. lol Yeah it always depends how you use the tool, even if its crappy lol Just wondering...
Nyaa~ This is one of meh fave Pierrots♥ So cute~

And yes it is stupid @-@ But yes people do it, all the time. It's hard to track as well since its posted online. If I didn't watermark so much than my work wouldn't be uploaded here at all :/

And again, I'm really glad you like it XD If you're interested, this image was inspired off of a watercolour painting by an artist named Mira Fujita (I only just found out her name a couple of months ago-- she's mentioned in the detail submission for this image for being the inspiration source).
It's hard finding any information on her though. I have one of her prints on my wall, this one: [link] (low quality image I got off the net)
And someone else who was also inspired by her, did a tribute copy of this one: [link]

I'm still searching for more of her prints :D

Nice work, great choice of colour and emotion in this piece. The pink background is the perfect colour to bring out the best in this work.

Keep it up ;)
