Oscar by Sycil Oscar by Sycil
Main character from the anime "Lady Oscar" I watched during my holidays. It's a pretty old manga adaptation of Riyoko Ikeda, but I've just discovered it thanks to DVDs my grandmother offered to my sister.

This is the story of a young woman, Oscar François de Jarjayes, who was raised like a man according to her father's will, in the 18th century in France. She was commited in the French royal guard as a capitain when she turned 14 in 1769. She became a Queen's close friend and a glorious soldier. She faithfully served her during many years before the Revolution and even if the most part of the story is centered on Oscar's military successes and her friendship with some other soldiers, there's also the theme of Love, wich isn't easily conceivable in the universe of this ambiguous young woman with a double identity.

Actually, "The Rose of Versailles" was really captivating, and Oscar's strenght and royal allure inspired me, so as her androgine appearance. Even if we probably can not recognize her instantaneously, I had fun drawing, painting and using Photoshop. There is apparently not a special age to watch cartoons ;-)

Edit October 09: Modifications around the eyes added .

But i'm certainly not an artist. I've got a whole life to become one. Perhaps it won't be enough. I can still try :)

Well, if you're interested, I drew some Lady Oscar fanarts here [link] with the couple Oscar/Andre. It's a different style because most of them are traditional artworks with real pencils x)
But I must say my personnal favorite is still this portrait of Oscar. I put all my admiration for her in it :)

You're quite welcome Sycil. :)

Oscar was - and still is - my favorite cartoon character. (Noticed it is yours too!) I loved the concept of a woman portraying a man, sacrificing her femininity to please her father. I watched it in french, since I'm a Quebecor and I bought the DVDs.

Je ne puis que t'encourager à poursuivre ton grand art!

Au plaisir,

Maryse

you are wrong, the drawing is easily recognizable because you caught the expression of her face wonderfully

I'm pleased to see you recognized her. I tried to do her portrait the best way I could, and the way I was imagining her. Of course, for a more realistic style, she would have had smaller eyes. But perhaps it would lower the impact of her look...

Thank you for commenting :)
