    I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

    Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

    And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

    Oh, and by the way…

    Tudor:

    Elizabethan:

    Victorian:

    Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.

"I’m an architect, and I’ve designed buildings all over the world. Every time I get a commission in an emerging market, I get excited about the opportunity to draw from the country’s heritage, culture, and art. But the client never wants it. They all want the same thing: ‘modern style, modern style, modern style.’ Everything has to be high and glassy. It’s almost as if everyone wants to hide their differences. It’s boring."

    I’ve never posted my art, but I’m especially proud of this one. I get random bursts of drawing motivation, and if I want to draw something after whatever motivated me to draw, it doesn’t turn out the way I want. It was really fun drawing this and jamming out to music on Spotify. Though I stayed up almost 24 hours >u< ! 

    Apologies for anatomical inaccuracies.

    Side note: the note at the bottom right says pants, if anyone’s curious. It’s more of a note to myself.
