Between Past and Present Days by DanielaLaverne Between Past and Present Days by DanielaLaverne
This picture features me in the Tracht (traditional clothing) of the Swabian lands in Germany - the very same area my father's family is from.

The Tracht as seen here is from the Ostalb District, although the colouring I created myself - matching to my family's coat of arms.

The coat of arms we have since 1546, but the family's history can be tracked back to Barons in the 11th century.

(And yes, actually my eyes are dark brown as seen here ... I just prefer to draw myself with green - or occasionally amber - eyes.)

Very nice! It is cute, and well done.

I think your hand is slightly too large, but really, it's well done ^^ :w00t!:

Thanks! =) I'm glad you like it. ^_^

Now that you say it, yes, I see it, my hand turned out a bit big, I might got the perspective wrong there. ^^;

I'm not really good with perspective myself, so often I won't say anything because I can't do any better ^^; It's a very cute drawing otherwise.

Thanks a lot! =)

To answer your question: Not very often, those clothes look more comfortable than they actually are. ^^;

... a family tree? Hmmm, that'd be a huge picture, including the Swabians, Silesians, Lower Saxons, other Germans, Poles, French, Austrians, Czechs, Dutchs, Russians, etc etc etc ... ^^;

Just have fun with it if you do a family tree. :D I only can trace my family back a few generation so it's cool that you know so much. :D

Ah! I see. I didn't knew that yet.

My father is Swabian and so is his entire family. The Swabians usually call that land the Ländle.
