There are in the anime/manga world like any other entertainment art form, rising stars and gods. One of these gods is Ryoko Ikeda. This wonderful woman drew and wrote one of the most passionate stories based on yet another tragic and romanticized tale about Marie Antoinette and the Louis XVI court. The title of her work: “Versailles no Bara” – “The Rose of Versailles” We can imagine some fingers shooting up in the air now because Marie Antoinette is not the actual heroine of this manga. But oh, that’s for you to find out, right?
The person – who so kindly allowed us to show sketches of this work – that commissioned us this piece though, has a fascination with Marie Antoinette ^_^… this was a sketch for clothing and style, as for the colours, they were just for fun, the true ones will be blue and bits of pink!
It’s not yet official, but we are currently starting commissions, only on national waters so to speak. Bare with us just a little longer!
