Bunnie Antoinette by suburbanbeatnik Bunnie Antoinette by suburbanbeatnik
So, technically I really shouldn't have this on my dA site, as this is in my portfolio. But... I decided to make an exception, as I knew you guys would really enjoy it. I did this last summer for a friend's gallery showing, and I sold it a few months ago. It features an adorably fluffy bunny version of Marie Antoinette proclaiming "Let them eat carrot cake!" Her enormous dress, inspired by French fashion plates from the 1770s, is garnished liberally with her favorite vegetable, and her little fan features rabbits frolicking in a pastoral Watteau-like setting. The medium is light acrylic washes, painted on watercolor paper, on which I had photocopied the original drawing.

Bunnie Antoinette by ~suburbanbeatnik is absolutely stunning! It's quite a clever twist on our traditional idea of Marie Antoinette. ( Suggested by CassandraJames and Featured by cooley )

It oddly reminds me of Beatrix Potter-one of my favorite artists.
I think it's beautiful.

You mean the Sofia Coppola one, right? To be honest, I wasn't a big fan. (I prefer the "Marie Antoinette" movie from 1938, with Norma Shearer.)

I'm referring to the one with Renee Zellweger. If that's what you mean. I don't know who Sofia Coppola is.

Renee Zellweger? You mean Kirsten Dunst, don't you? She was the one who starred in the the 2006 "Marie Antoinette." [link] Sofia Coppola directed it.

Ohh, when I said Renee Zellweger I meant Miss Potter.
Ugh, never mind. I never saw Marie Antoinette, but I've heard good stuff about Sophia. And I do like Kirsten Dunst. I should see it then.

Well, I love Sofia Coppola's previous movies, but MA wasn't my favorite film. I do want to see "Miss Potter" though. :D
