Από τη βασίλισσα Νεφερτίτη μέχρι την Ίνγκριντ Μπέργκμαν, προσωπικότητες της ιστορίας και της τέχνης απολαμβάνουν μια ανανέωση του στυλ τους και μεταφέρονται μαγικά στο σήμερα, μέσα από τη σειρά εικόνων Royalty Now.

Πώς θα ήταν μερικές από τις πιο εμβληματικές προσωπικότητες της ιστορίας αλλά και τις μούσες της τέχνης αν ζούσαν σήμερα; Μια γυναίκα, η Μπέκα Σάλαντιν, ανανεώνει το στυλ τους και τους ξαναδίνει ζωή, μέσα από μια σειρά εικόνων στο Instagram.

Παρόλο που ο τίτλος του λογαριασμού, Royalty Now, παραπέμπει σε βασιλιάδες και άλλους ηγέτες, τα πρόσωπα που επιλέγει η δημιουργός ποικίλλουν, οπότε ανάμεσα στην βασίλισσα Νεφερτίτη και τον Λουδοβίκο 14ο της Γαλλίας (γνωστό και ως Βασιλιά Ήλιο) βλέπουμε επίσης την «Αφροδίτη» του Μποτιτσέλι, τη «Μόνα Λίζα» του Λεονάρντο Ντα Βίντσι, αλλά και την ηθοποιό Ίνγκριντ Μπέργκμαν.

«Μου παίρνει χρόνο μέχρι να έχω μια εικόνα που βγάζει νόημα» έχει πει η Σάλαντιν, προσθέτοντας πως η μεγαλύτερη πρόκληση που αντιμετωπίζει είναι η αναπαράσταση ενός προσώπου από αρχαίες προτομές και μάσκες, σε μεγάλο βαθμό επειδή τα χαρακτηριστικά τους απέχουν από το ρεαλιστικό.

Λάτρης της ιστορίας που έγινε γραφίστρια, η Σάλαντιν μάς διαβεβαιώνει ότι «μπορείς να καλλιεργήσεις οποιαδήποτε δεξιότητα, αρκεί να της αφιερώσεις χρόνο και σκληρή δουλειά». Η ίδια παίρνει το θάρρος να συνεχίσει ό,τι κάνει, από την ανταπόκριση που εισπράττει από τον κόσμο. «Λαμβάνω πάρα πολλά μηνύματα από εκπαιδευτικούς και άλλους ανθρώπους που μου λένε ότι ζωντανεύω την ιστορία για εκείνους, για τα παιδιά τους, για τους μαθητές τους. Αυτό με αποζημιώνει για τον χρόνο και την προσπάθειά μου».

A very frequently requested subject, here is Mark Antony! Let me tell you, this one gave me a run for my money. I wasn’t expecting it to be such a challenge but it was a fun one which left me poring over every detail. The only description I could find for his looks was that he had medium brown hair and hazel eyes, so that’s what I went with here. . Marcus Antonius (known in English as Mark Antony), lived from 83 BC until 30 BC. He was an influential Roman military leader and politician during the pivotal time in Roman history when the empire was transitioning from a Republic to an autocratic Empire. . Antony was a friend and supporter of Julius Caesar - they had served together during the Gallic wars and the Empire’s civil war (of which Julius Caesar emerged the victor). After Julius Caesar’s assassination, Antony, Octavian, and Marcus Lepidus joined forces to defeat Caesar’s assassins, eventually becoming a three-man dictatorship. A notorious partier, Mark Antony began his infamous love affair with Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Eventually, tensions between Antony and Octavian became too strong and broke into a civil war. Antony was married to Octavian’s sister while openly carrying out his love affair with the Egyptian queen, further straining the relationship between the two men. Octavian declared war on Cleopatra and marked Antony as a traitor. Antony was defeated by Octavian’s forces at the Battle of Actium. He then fled to Egypt, where both he and Cleopatra notoriously committed suicide. Octavian then became the first true Emperor of Rome, taking on the name Augustus - a former Royalty Now subject. .

Hatshepsut came to the throne of Egypt in 1478 BC. She ruled longer than any other female pharaoh and is regarded as being one of the most successful pharaohs in Egyptian history. Egyptologist James Henry Breasted said she is "the first great woman in history of whom we are informed." She re-established trade networks and embarked on great building projects in Egypt. There were so many statues produced during her reign that nearly every major museum that has an Ancient Egyptian exhibit has a Hatshepsut portrait. . This was obviously a very stylized statue to work from, but it was really fun to guess what she would look like nonetheless. What’s interesting about the depictions of Hatshepsut is that they are very stylized in terms of the large eyes and small head, yet they are incredibly consistent across time and location. Every single portrait I’ve found of her has these large, kind eyes, the same shape nose, and a bit of a smile. None of the portraits of her show any age differences, so I’ve depicted her here as a young woman to match the smooth look of the statue. There aren’t many descriptions of her appearance, but some say she was obese and perhaps balding by the end of her great reign. I’ve given her a skin tone that matched some of the pigment on her statues, and I’m aware this may not be correct - unfortunately we have no DNA evidence or descriptions of skin tone for her. A mummy has been attributed to her that shows diabetes and died of bone cancer in her fifties. If that mummy was indeed her, it would explain her deteriorating appearance and bad teeth in her later years. .

Louis XIV, known also as the Sun King, ruled France from 1643 until 1715, which is the longest reign in French history. France was a leading power during the reign of Louis, but it was a time period marked by near constant warfare. The Sun King was notoriously excessive, and he cared very much about his image and legacy. He commissioned over 300 portraits of himself during his lifetime (the portrait I’ve chosen here is Louis as a young man of 23). He saw maintaining the royal image as a political duty during the age of absolute monarchies in Europe. It’s clear that Louis was “photoshopped” in portraits after the age of 9 when he contracted smallpox, because a single scar is never seen in portraits. Louis was focused more on projecting a mythical image of himself rather than reality (which is similar to most kings and queens throughout the ages). Who knows how close the original portrait I worked from even resembles the king, but it’s a fun exercise nonetheless. I figured a man who was as extra as Louis and wore such insane wigs might have this stylish model blowout I chose on the right.

Happy Valentines day! It’s only fitting to do Venus from Botticelli’s famous “The Birth of Venus”, painted during the height of the Italian Renaissance. The model for Venus is the gorgeous Simotta Vespucci, one of the artist’s muses. I think she’s one of the most beautiful females ever painted - do you think anyone tops her? Swipe to see a sneak peak of the creation video for this one, which is now live for Patreon supporters! . . As always, if you would like to support you can do so by joining the Patreon (www.patreon.com/royaltynow) or I have a “Tip Jar” here at www.paypalme/royaltynow. Any help is much appreciated. . .
