Bastille Day 2012!

Today is Bastille Day! I was going to put up a little picture I colored from RoV but I haven't finished it yet...
Instead, I will share a little project I worked on last night and this morning! 

I made a little chibi André! He's made of felt and paint. c: 

Took the picture with my iPod so the picture is quite small.
I edited the picture with LINE Camera.
I found the body pattern on deviantART by LoRi-La-Tortuga and I did the rest!

Anways, I felt like doing something for Bastille Day this year for no reason.
This was the result c:

Intro and Stuffff....

I am new to this and I has some stuff to put out! Yay.

I went to Versailles and bought Tome 1 for Rose de Versailles c: I can't read French well but I managed to understand most of it! So.. Now I'm here all interested in the series! I searched on youtube "la rose de versailles" just to see what would come up. I found a old 2007 trailer for a possible remake for the movie. I read comments on how it was just a panchiko commercial or something with that. I also read about being in pre-production to this day. I was really confused, so I ended up posting a BBS on Ikeda Riyoko's site in English. I received two replied in English from some fans..
My post:
日本語がよく話せません。Hello Mrs. Ikeda Riyoko. I am sorry that I could not write this in Japanese! I I recently traveled to France and visited Versailles. I brought a French version of "The Rose of Versailles" and I instantly fell in love with it. I found out about an animation movie that was mentioned around 2007. I would like to know if the movie will ever be released. I also wonder if "The Rose of Versailles" will be translated in English. It is a wonderful story! Oscar is an amazing character. I think many people would like this. Again, I am sorry that I could not write this in Japanese. Thank you!

Reply 1:
I like ”The Rose of versailles" too.
I read it first at 12 years old.
When Oscar was dead,I was shocked and sadness.
I want to travel to Paris and Versaille someday.

Hello, Lyssa. I'm so happy to know there is an enthusiastic lover of "The Rose of Versailles" like you in another country on this earth. I'm a Japanese who has been a fan of this wonderful unique comic for more than 35 years.
I know there are still many fans here in Japan and understood your message, but very few of them can write a reply to you in English. 
I'm sorry to tell you, but the animation movie which had been mentioned around 2007 was cancelled as far as I know. Many Japanese fans are waiting for the chance to come up to the schedule again in near future.
I envy you so much, for you can read French. I have wanted to read the story in foreign languages for a long time, especially in English, which is the easiest for me. I heard that only two volumes of this long story was published in English many years ago and was out of production (not made for sale) now.
I hope to hear from you again. The character I like the best is Oscar, of course. She has been an indicator of my life.
So according to the second reply, the movie has been cancelled so far. I also hope the whole series will be licensed in English one day too. I'd like that.

My next and last deal of business is fanart! I was on here looking for good artwork. I tried to link to Kodemari's site on infoseek but it wasn't working. I searched for it and finally found it. http://moncoeur.quu.cc/home.index.html I absolutely love the artwork!!! That's all I have to say c:

Fanart by...?

Hello everyone! I'm new here :) Though I have been following this group for years, it's the first time I am posting. I found this fanart on my computer and realized that I didn't know who drew it. The image was saved as "laurassite.jpg" so I assumed I would find out who drew it from Laura's Little Corner. I browsed all the galleries there with no luck. I searched for it in every possible way on Google and still couldn't find a trace. So I thought I would ask you guys. Please, can anyone tell me who drew this gorgeous fanart?

Question about an image

Hello! Sorry to post an entry for something like this, but I was hoping somebody here could help me find out more about the image on this cover:

Does anyone know where it comes from? I'd love to see the original/raw picture, or at least the same cover but in a bigger size.
(I saved the image above years ago, and unfortunately didn't type down the source so I can't give credit).
