Athos at the Palace 2010 by Ysa Athos at the Palace 2010 by Ysa
Athos in front of the Louvre in Paris.

This is a remake of [link] (the oldest drawing in my gallery), that I made on january 20, 2005. Sadly it is not the very first thing I ever submitted (I joined in 2004). But it's still old.
I actually made this for the contest of #KickYourOwnAss
Here is the before and after pic:

:thumb172677475:

I gave him a cane instead of letting him rest on his sword which is something you wouldn't do. I placed is sword on his right making him lefthanded but else you wouldn't be able to actually see the sword. I also made the buidling more realistic and the costume more historically correct. And I digitally inked and coloured it because that is what I do these days XD

Character Alexandre Dumas
Art *Ysa

My favourite Musketeer! :love:

As to making him a sudden leftie, he did say when he and d'Artagnan were about to duel at the start of The Three Musketeers that he could use his left hand as well as his right. :thumbsup:

Hi Ysa! I've seen this piece a bit ago but I didn't have the time to comment then... <3 so awesome, I love that fresh take on what I think is a classic of your collection.

=P I must say that you gave Athos a very "Alexanderish" expression though... Unless it's Alexander that has a very "Athos" like expression? :P :giggle: Was that intended? No matter anyway, it's fantastic!

Indeed haha I sortof had the same idea about them when I still drew a lot of musketeer art back in 2006, same sort of personality and all so they also started to look alike abit... o well

Gorgeous work, Ysa! I love the costume detail. It looks very authentic-- no one can do those 17th century cavaliers like you can.

Why didn't this appear in my deviation box? x_x;

Hij is brilliant gelukt!! Je bent zeker in die 5 jaar erg voorruit gegaan, als in veel gedetailleerder geworden, en eigen stijl ontwikkeld!
Ook heb je de achtergrond echt helemaal zelf gemaakt?! Dat is echt zo WOW! XD Geweldig gewoon, het maakt het helemaal compleet! Veel succes in de contest je hebt zeker kans! <3

Nevermind! XD
He looks good and young. But he's always 40 in my mind XD

Ysa Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2010
yes, well that would be the age I depicted him in... even though in the third book he is probably way older. But I always have him mid 40s in my head ^^;

i remember that his in his mid 50 in the second book.... but still... i can't imagine it. XD

hmm I kind of always imagined Athos more noble and cold looking. I felt he was cold because he got his heart broken, when he was Innocent. This feels to me more like one of french kings Louis, because he came out kind of snobish looking and picky and I am not to found of red royal colors on him. But thats just me.. If I drew Athos he woulld be cold violet or even dark black colors.

I can definitely see it's still the same person, but the anatomy is much better and the details in the clothes are so much more refined. It's almost like he's grown up and gotten a bit richer ;)
