A study on a really cute 18th century stay, with a camisole layered underneath and the bloomers/underpants.
(Quick note: Originally this involved a lil itty bit more bare skin, but it was going too close to the mature content to really keep, so this is the more decent version, even if it does make the crotch look really weird and little wonky. I'm too used to drawing my ladies in the nude, ugh)
The bloomers of the time were always crothchless, if women wore them at all, since it was more or less considered immoral for a woman to "have something between her legs", pretty much.
That, and... you know, going to the toilet was ridiculously difficult with a hoop-skirt on, so if you had to wear bloomers, they'd better be open at the middle.
Actually they were made of two separate pant-legs you'd tie around the waist, and then could be tightened around/under the knee with ribbon to keep the socks up! I prefer this tied-over-the-pant look, since it's much cuter than just two straight chutes with the sock-ribbon underneath and hidden (silky ribbons are so much fun to shade, honestly).
The overall feel of the room was supposed to be that nobility-level plush and lavish, which the Russian court was all about too, but... It feels a little brothel-ly now that I look at it, and I have no idea why all bedrooms I draw tend to do that.
Poor poor baby child.
Nata is my best girl though, I love her so much.
The whole sibling trio are all my babies, what sweet schnookums.
Hoping I could add Ukraine to my gallery soon, but she's really hard to draw!
Another hard thing to draw were the hands and the position of the arms! Oh my god, the struggle was real.
I eventually had to use a couple of pictures to get them right, since hands have never been my strong point. Luckily those helped, and now they look almost normal. :''^D
I take no credit for the hands or arms here, that was all just modeling from other art to get them straight.
