Fanfare by Franchesco Fanfare by Franchesco
"A Fanfare is a relatively short piece of music.

It is usually intended for important social purposes, such as ceremonial events involving royalty or important people, as exclamations of significant activities during an event, or to precede announcements with the purpose of gaining the attention of the audience.

Similarly, musical works themselves often begin, transition, or end with fanfares or fanfare-like themes. The term is also used symbolically, such as to describe occasions that are greatly publicized, even when no music is involved."

adoro il contrasto tra la posa (soprattutto delle gambe) cartoonesca e la colorazione cosė realistica

LOVE this! Her face is absolutely brilliant <3 I have to admit, with your style in particular, I'd love to see it as the old school circus banners that used to hang for all the different side shows they have. Keep up with the fantastic art and making my DA inbox a happy place <3

This is stunning! The amazing part is the softness of the colors on the face give it a great feel of the vintage pin ups like Elvgren or Vargas. You and I have spoken a few times at cons now and I am always delighted seeing your work up close at the pencil stage. I have often felt that your art is--and I hope you appreciate the comparison--very similar in style to Rick Leonardi. But your line is some much more attractive and beautiful! Looking forward to C2E2 again this year for more sketchbooks!
Just wonderful! Thanks for posting it here!
