Back to Paris 1900 by Zhaana Back to Paris 1900 by Zhaana
It's a gift for a cousin who's getting married in March. :3 Since months I was wondering which gift I could do for her. Then knowing her wedding theme would be Old Paris, I searched ideas on net, then found a little old postcard on a website, showing this street in 1900 (no copyrights found cause it's old). What a neat idea !! It was quite a BIG challenge, with all the people in the pic, but I think I succeed to do it. Of course ther're some variations from the original. For example in my wips there was a dog in foreground, but then he didn't look like a dog, more like a ram or a sheep (poor him), so I removed it ! xD

Anyway, I hope you'll like it.

Hi, Dhella.

I love the quality of this piece. It has a timelessness all its own. One thing I particularly like is the choice of colors for the different clothing, and the way that you have rendered the trees!

There are so many elements, and yet it all harmonizes into a cohesive composition, fitting together quite nicely!

Beautiful work!

:D

Ooh, this is so gorgeous :) I like how there are so many details while the style itself is very simple and clean. And there's something very neat about juxtaposing a turn-of-the-century scene with vector art :)
