A New Fit by Wildweasel339 A New Fit by Wildweasel339

As daughter of the royal ambassador, Ariandra was required to wear body armor while traveling in foreign territory. For several months she endured the traditional plate carapace. It was oversized and bulky in a way that made her look far too much like a palace guard, or as Ariandra lamented, a “bumbling brute.”

Seeing her anguish, Ariandra's father ordered the services of the kingdom's most famed tailor to design a custom outfit. It was to be both protective and fashionable.

Finally she would be seen in public, and was eager to peruse the foreign bazaars in style.

i'm amazed at your ability to imply detail, knowing what strokes to keep, which ones to refine, it almost feels random and yet, this outcome could only be intentional, i can only admire...

I absolutely loved the colors. The lighting is amazing too! But most of all, the perspective of the floor and also of the carpets on it. Stunningly achieved!

This reminded me of some the great Jean-Leon Gerome's works, such as [link]

He's one of my all-time favorite artists...
