Ludovique by shingworks Ludovique by shingworks
The Papess Ludovique, from the Italian comic Skydoll (which is my hero) :B I think maybe this spelling of her name is the French version? Since in the book it's spelled Ludovic in the drawn bg, but whatever, this spelling is more symmetrical haha. I'm not 100% sure since I haven't gotten around to translating all the text yet, but she's the new female pope and a big fraud in comparison to the last one, who could actually perform miracles. Also she is hott. I love how the artists draw her as sort of busting out of her fitted undergarments*.

This took a while to finish due to time constraints and my new rule of not messing with the ctrl+B color thing, which is hard D:

My Gods, I love you!! I came across the comic half a year ago, and couldn't for the life of me remeber what it was called.
Love the picture. Totally captured her bad ass, sexy/bitch personality.

Great fanart. Honestly I think ludovique has the best female character design in the whole book, Noa is likeable but she is so skinny and in need of hips if you ask me O.o.
I really want to know why is she so crazy though... apart from the Miracolotore messing with her head. (Gosh I hate that guy, total creep and even a bigger hipocrite than all the characters in the book)

lidovique is the french version, if you want all 3 issues, translated into english you can get them ummm.... [link] here for like $7.00 ignore the slutty angel on the cover.

anyways. on to the pic. ludovique's got such a cool character design. she's kind of a nice change from noa, being that she's actually got some meat on her. i can't help but feel bad for her character, she's soo screwed up and lost. but you did a great job of depicting her as her papess-self here, all smug and self assured and fooling the crazed religious masses.

The version im reading now is french, we dont have english versions here either :/... not that i know of anyway. I know her better as Ludovique :3

She looks great, shes more bulky than in the comic but i really like that. Gives her fantastic hips anyway :). Beautiful coloring on her bottom legs and forearms!

You meant color balance right? XD, very courageous of you. Dont think im quite good enough with colors to get what i want on the first try XD! Props to you on that, ima have to try not using that one of those days :)

Thanks for your comment! Glad you liked it, esp the liberties I took with her hips, haha...

I'm a total color balance whore! I get the bad urge to fiddle with it for everything, which makes the colors look fake, but you know how it is XD

Looove that expression. Man, I adore Skydoll, but cannot read the french at all which means I'm missing out on most of the comic.Why must some of the best comics be written in a language I'm too lazy to learn? :D

Wow! It's not often one sees Ludovique fanart. You've probably heard, but there is an English translation of all three of the current Sky Doll issues in the form of Heavy Metal magazine's Sky Doll issue. It's not the greatest, but it is English (and it's only $6). I've heard rumors that the French publishers are talking with comic publishers here to get an official translation printed in North America.

Also, I love the way you used Ludovique's crazy pope bra to censor her. Very awesome. :D

:iconshingworks:
shingworks Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
XD That bra is so awesome, I like how the motif keeps showing up in the background of the comic, haha.... yeah I heard about the translation! I'm thinking about buying it, it seems like a good investment...

:iconrazzek:
Razzek Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
I bought it and it was worthwhile. Again, it's not a very good translation, but it works for now and the art is still gorgeous in person. :)

I loved that even Noa ends up wearing something similar to Ludovique's pope costume at one point (although she doesn't wear the Death Bra, but that would have been so awesome if she had XD There's probably some Ludovican edict that says it is forbidden for anyone but the Popess to wear the Death Bra :D).

To be honest I don't really know if they're human or not, but she's organic at least... the main character is a robot doll thing... And yeah she has this contraption that makes her bleed like stigmata :B Its so funky.

cooolll
she certainly looks more evil without the pyramid-shaped mary dress. I somehow really like the mix of details and rougher background, the shapes of the 'theater' curls look really nice, including that nice touch of shadow. Blood could be more, it's reaaaly subtle right now.
I like how you've captured her shortness and sexy curves.
