Feuilly's Studio by NinjaMiki Feuilly's Studio by NinjaMiki
'Feuilly was a workingman, a fan-maker, orphaned both of father and mother, who earned with difficulty three francs a day, and had but one thought, to deliver the world. He had one other preoccupation, to educate himself; he called this also, delivering himself. He had taught himself to read and write; everything that he knew, he had learned by himself. Feuilly had a generous heart. The range of his embrace was immense.'

Feuilly is my favourite of the Les Amis de l'ABC, he belongs to Victor Hugo not me.

Very, very, VERY nicely done. I love the pose, the anatomy, the expression, the fans, the simplicity, the angle, the palette... SO nice! And Feuilly has always been one of my favorites.

Yeah, he was definitely a favorite of mine, too. I love the angle you chose and I'm amused that it his room looks my dorm room at SCAD.

I cannot tell you how perfect this is. I love all the fans on the wall, his simple bed, his ink-stained hands, the neatness of his hair and vest, his profile, his concentration- all of which I think will inform my image and idea of Feuilly in a great way. Long live Poland, and our Feuilly- in song and story. :clap:

I'm loving the style here, very vector-like, with soft colours and lines. As has been said before, the anatomy is dead-on, and the subtle touches of shading in the hair and the waistcoat and fans motifs are lovely. Wonderful work :)

Oh, this is so nice! I especially love his vest. :D

the vest was a nightmare! Haha. I tried to make it as accurate to the photos of Scott Garnham as Feuilly, because there are lots of him in the vest, but the pattern was terrifying :)

Oh, wow, this is gorgeous. A look into a moment not many people have even thought about drawing... The fans look great, and I love Feuilly's expression! And such beautiful colour palette... Amazing job, all in all.

Haha Feuilly is just such a cutie I absolutely had to draw him :) And he always seemed like a really calm and thoughtful boy in the brick, so I thought the colour palette needed to be a little bit more subdued than my normal stuff. I'm glad you like it!

This is excellent! It was good of you to include that quote as a caption, they complement each other perfectly. Great artwork!

NinjaMiki Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
Yeah I thought the caption was needed because it's why I fell in love with the character of Feuilly, and the drawing was based around that. Thanks! I'm glad you like it <3
