Rosaura  Vignari by Gurdim Rosaura  Vignari by Gurdim
a young noblewoman, still from around the XVth century.

I'm not sure if the hairstyle (i invented it) is historically accurate, but it should be acceptable: braids and wavy hair were very liked, and young girls as dama Vignari, here used more often to keep the hair free, while adult and older women used to fashion their hair in a more kept way, often with the help of pearls and veils

I love this! The hair, clothes, face, it's all very nice. Her hair is my favorite thing about this, though.

thanks, means a lot to me :D for the posture and the clothes i took some loose references, about the hair... well the drawing in a sense was birth starting from the hair xD: one day i was sketching some stuff and i did a stylized head, and seeing shading a bit with the pencil, that way, looked cool, i wanted to make some more complex hairstyle and see how it looked (and of course i had to make a lady bearing said hair xD) i must say im quite satisfied :) i dunno if it's completely faithful to the age's fashion, but i tried to make it look like some of Raffaello's ladies hair (if i remember well usually in those years only teen girls or young women used loose hair, the others had complex gatherings and veils... or was it for non married ladies? meh i dont remember xD)
