The Style

I try to be as true to the illustration style around 1900 for my War of the Worlds adaption as possible - above, I have tried to make a comparison. Unfortunately, I have forgotten from where the marvellous illustration on the left is, I must have cut it out one day - but I admire it´s detailed style, it´s characterization of the woman on the left, it´s sense for light and mood... on the right you can see the illustration style I use for my War of the Worlds graphic novel. I hope one can see at least a bit where I have been inspired from.
