one of my midsummer's night dream project.
She is also sadly my least favorite.
creating her I wanted to show more nature in
the outfit in comparison to the other three
servants, and I wanted to make her look a
bit homely. The flowers show innocence and
the hitting at a Hawaiian outfit symbolizes
youth. The skirt is tangled to show that she
is still not truly good. In the play I
wanted to have it so that her head is always
cast downward in a very servant like pose.
In this drawing I chose sort of a curtsey as
if she was greeting someone, but a bit
unsure why they were greeting her.
Titania's servants she is the one that acts
the most like a maid. I see it being a
relationship where Titania needs
Peaseblossom for everything but pays her no
attention and takes her for granted.
people might be wondering why I went to so
much trouble to give characters that are
basically mute in the play so much
character. I wanted to show Titania's darker
side by showing who she has for servants and
how tainted they are. I also envisioned the
servants as acting for all the fairies. I
wanted to give them enough personality that
you wouldn't need other fairies and so that
they could pop in and out of scenes they
have no lines in as sort of a way of saying
"the fairies are always watching you".
