Victorian Character Style

Posted by Kim on January 10, 2024, 9:00am

I promised during the Lemonade Stand that if we pushed past goal #2, I would design and release a popularly requested character style. We did smash that goal, and so I embarked on the design process. I chose the prompt "Victorian," which has for years been one of the most popular requests, and was in full force in the requests at that time as well.

I have struggled for YEARS with this prompt, and always bailed out because I couldn't quite figure out what Victorian meant. Victorian... studies? Tea parties? Calling cards? Fashions? Cities? Wallpaper? Birding illustrations? I had always felt so overwhelmed I never quite settled anywhere. But I decided the lemonade stand goal was the kick in the pants that I needed to finally buckle down and figure it out.

And then I struggled again for a couple more months, on and off between working on Operation Terra Incognita. But never did I forget my promise!

Now, finally, I have something I'm happy enough with to release. :D Meet Victorian Filigree, a take on the maximilast typography designs of Victorian hand bills.

Five, if you see this, this would have been perfect for Dr. Swordson and Maree.

I'm so happy y'all like it ;.; I'm hoping there's a bit more water in this well from some of the other avenues that I tried on the way to this one, too. :)

LOOK at those! Woah! That's got a kind of perfect tasteful bombastic feel which would work perfectly for any character of old-school class and refinement! The black also feels good for silver-screen-era actors and to me the blue has the right vibes for orchestral musicians, too, which is fun.

Filigree is also just such a gorgeous aesthetic choice in general, so it'll be great to see how these get used! ^v^
