Hi Everyone!   Anyone who has been looking at my art these past few months will know I've been creating historical fashion characters.  They have been so much fun to create.  I've done a lot  of research to get them to look historically correct as possible (I still have long way to go though).  I've surfed the internet, gone to local libraries, took the metro to Washington DC to Smithsonian Museums and even done research at the library of congress.  I will be creating many more of them.  I plan right now to have 21 in total but I might more even after that.  Historical Fashion covers so many Eras, Centuries, Countries, Styles, and Cultures.  It allows endless creativity and I have learned so my history while conducting my research.  I have now sketched four new characters now on paper.  It will take a few months to finish all of them so I thought I'd tell everyone looking at this page their year and country their from.  I have yet to name them but will find out in the near future.

:blowkiss: Hello! I'm going through favorites I've missed in the past and thanking people, so bear with me for taking so long to give a personal reply.
:iconrubcheeksplz: Thank you SO much for your support by adding my first daily deviation to your favorites back in 2012. :giggle: A long time ago, I know! But I had to thank you sometime!

This is a formal invitation to come and see where my gallery has gone since then, since I believe I've vastly improved. :love: If you don't care for it no harm done and I won't bother you anymore. :D
