ArtJam - Romeo and Juliet by LeeMinKyo ArtJam - Romeo and Juliet by LeeMinKyo
"For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."

William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, 5.3


My piece for the art-jam. Week#4 theme: Star-crossed lovers.

Being a fan of Shakespeare, who collects old versions of Romeo and Juliet... well, it was evident which lovers I would choose. xD And I have always liked the Leonardo DiCaprio movie.

I can't stand this version of the timeless play. It's horrendously modernised and in my opinion, both Romeo and Juliet don't look as lovely as I imagine they should be. No. Personally, I highly recommend Zeferelli's version.

Stunning!!! Just beautiful.

I'm a big fan of Romeo and Juliet, and this version with Leo and Clare is one of my all time favourite movies!

This is perfect in every way!
The painting look fantastic - especially the reflections of the armor looks so real!
And it's such a romantic image!
I was never a fan of this movie, but i love this picture!!!! :heart:

*sighs* Donīt get me started with the armor... itīs one of those things that I had to do, and re-do, and re-do...
:love: Iīm a fan of Romeo & Juliet, period. As long as they donīt do weird stuff like alien families (I have seen sci-fi cheap movies based on this play xD), I will love it for sure.
:smooch: Thankies!

The armor looks really like much work, but you've done a fantasctic job.
It looks absolutely realistic, so i guess all the extra work's worth it in the end. ;)

Hahahah, I know the feeling. I missed to draw romantic stuff. This gave me a great Twilight related idea that I hope I can do soon. :love:

I like the idea a lot! Funny, some weeks ago I had an artistīs block and a girl suggested me to draw scenes from Shakespeare plays. xD Maybe when the art-jam ends we can have our own Shakespeare mini-art-jam. What do you think?

Good idea!! Although I don't have any clear ideas for Shakespeare just now, but I like the idea of a mini art-jam, it's really original...!

You're always welcome, Lee. That movie is also my favorite version of Romeo and Juliet, although it is a contemporary one. Leo is one of my fave actors, and I used to have a HUGE crush on Claire Danes as a teen! lol....

I prefer some other versions but this one is beautiful too. xD I always hated Leo. I was a teen back then when he was super famous and all the girls were crazy about him. I have never liked those blonde/blue-eyes/girl-faces guys. I mean, if he looks like a girl from a fairy tale, then itīs not manly enough for me. xD I guess thatīs why I love Wolverine. lol

What does "star-crossed" lovers mean? :?
Reply
:iconleeminkyo:
LeeMinKyo Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you :D

Star-crossed means oposed by destiny. When we talk about star-crossed lovers we mean couples who have had a sad end. For example: Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde, Bonnie and Clyde, etc...

Mostly, they are couples that had had a lottttttttt of problems to be together and once it seemed evident that they will be together something bad happens and both of them die.

^^U I hope Iīve explained it right.
