. Lord Cygne . by Mokinzi . Lord Cygne . by Mokinzi
Not long ago, a swan lady popped up in my sketchbook while I was doodling [link] , and resulted in the character Lady Cygne. However, I kind of had a problem with just leaving her without knowing anything about her story. Then this fellow appeared in my head. "Draw me! Draw me!" he pleaded, and today I did.
I must say I like this character! A black swan, he is handsome and mysterious, with more exotic features than the white swan. I had a great time drawing him :)

This piece started out as a traditional drawing on brown, textured paper, and was then worked further on digitally in Photoshop. The textures applied are my own.

Cheers! :heart:

I instantly thought of Mother Goose once I saw the thumb. Best click ever~ She is such a beauty~ I love the monochrome tones and how the golden pocketwatch stands out from the grays. blacks, and whites~ I especially love her black feathers of how soft they appear and how her outfit looks so wonderful on her~

I am glad you like my artwork! I would like to note that this is a male, though - a Lord, thus the title is "Lord Cygne" :nod:

well, this is a masterpiece, like the one with lady swan!you know, the story between them could be one of great success among people...i mean, think about it...the love story of two swans, lord and lady, it's a romantic and yet like one of those old, legendary, stories, like prince charming or something like that xD

Thank you! Indeed, I am plotting out a whole story about them in the back of my mind. I am working on another huge project right now, but after that is finished, perhaps I can give my Cygnes some more attention! :meow:

Swans seem to lend themselves to feminine characters, given their grace and coloring, but the fairy tales are rife with male swans ("The Seven Swans", "The Children of Lir"), so this makes a refreshing change. He's certainly a handsome one :)

And yes, sometimes the character does show up and say, "Me next!" I've had it happen too when I'm writing. What can you do, except say, ""C'mon in!"

I do like this one better than Lady Cygne. She's lovely and elegant and all, but the idea of sleeves on wings that were not manipulated into hands, as is often done, is not an easy concept, at least for me. It looks so natural and not restrictive at all on this character.
