Fan Art of Claire  
In which I draw Caitriona Balfe as Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser, and she only has eyes for her ginger-haired laddie, Jamie. Which is fair, given that he only has eyes for her, too.

This is a companion piece to the drawing I made of Jamie Fraser, "Je Suis Prest." I really felt like he needed his Claire to keep him company.

Title: "Mo Nighean Donn"
Artist: altocello
Medium: Drawn with a digital drawing tablet in GIMP. Shameless use of a reference and grid to keep me on track.
Rating: G

How lovely and I saw the full size at your LJ. I love how perfectly you captured the texture and weave in her scarf.

Thank you very much! The cowl was really difficult, it literally took hours to render, so I'm very pleased to know you enjoyed how it came out <3

Ah yes, it's a cowl. I used scarf because I couldn't think of what it was actually called. I can believe it took hours to make it look so realistic. It came out beautifully in the end.

*hugs* I knew exactly what you meant, and in the end it's a knitted thing that goes around her neck <3 A cowl by any other name would be just as hard to draw, lol. It was difficult to keep it soft looking and yet define the stitches. What am I saying, it was hard to define the stitches, period! I'm really pleased to know you think I managed to do it well!
