Je suis prest by ladameblanche Je suis prest by ladameblanche
This is it! Finally he is done, after almost two months or so of work!!! Okay, I only had time to paint in the evenings for about an hour all the time, because of my diploma, which I work for during the days, so probably it took me about, hum, six or seven days as a whole.

Ladies and Gentlemen, behold the wonderful James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser, also known as Jamie Fraser, inspired by Diana Gabaldon´s novel "Outlander". The title of the picture, "je suis prest", is also the traditional clan motto of the Frasers, meaning "I am ready".

I simply wanted Jamie as my wallpaper, and since I could not find any appropriate pictures of him in the internet, I had to make him up myself. I used loads of reference pics of course, for him himself, his clothes, weapons, the background, everything! And his tartan is of course the original Fraser plaid, which I have looked up too.

I also have sent Mrs. Gabaldon a mail, asking her if she would give me permission to display him on the internet, but she hasn´t answered yet and I was so impatient... *hops-up-and-down* And I think that it´s okay to display him anyway, since it may be her original idea of the character, but it is my personal adaptation of her thoughts.

Wow! This is AMAZING!!! I was just talking with my Outlander-loving aunt yesterday about the lack of good images of Jamie. How everyone has their own image of him in their head that no one can bring it to fruition. Nothing I've seen so far (and I have looked!) has even come close, and then I saw this. I literally couldn't stop staring at it at one point. So well done. Thank you! Oh, and this is getting shown to my aunt a.s.a.p!

Welldone, a great impression of Jamie. I absolutely adore the books and currently reading The Fiery Cross. I just wish we all had a Jamie Fraser in our lives, as i'm sure you would agree!! Lol. Your picture of him is very accurate, and you have done him great justice. I just Love him soooooo much! xx

Ja, das ist bis jetzt mein meistbeachtetes Werk ;-) Ich mag es auch sehr, wenn ichs nochmal überarbeiten würde, würde ich das Hemd noch ein wenig im Wind mitbewegen lassen.

Ah, das Signet ist nicht von mir, das ist das offizielle Signet des schottischen Fraser-Clans - hab ich ergoogelt!

This is absolutely awesome. I'm gonna post a copy on my lj for a freind to see, as she is absolutely in love with Outlander, especially Jamie. She's even more gaga over him than Charlie Weasley, lol, and that is saying a lot. I will credit you!

Never read the book, or know of the character -- but, I do like your picture. I've been looking for photos of traditonal highland men and women, just for references in my brain (as I've been reading a lot about them lately) and I couldn't find anything online. Your image def. helped put an image of what they look like to my mind.
Good job!

Thanks!

I had the same problem as you, working on this picture, I wanted to find pics of traditional highlanders to use as a reference. What I found was very good was, to look for pictures out of typical movies, such as "Rob Roy", "Braveheart" and such. I know that the pics out of these movies are already kind of a "translation" and probably are adapted to our time and taste already, but nevertheless, they are helping. Maybe this helps. Also, what is a good source for reference pics are the websites of reenactment groups.

Well, it´s a character of a story and therefore everybody is free to have a very personal image of him. That´s no problem for me. Thank you for your comment!

*fangirls out a bit first*

I actually just started the Outlander series not too long ago, and I just had to look up the fan depictions. This is by far the closest thing to how I pictured him.

I love how you took the time to make the whole outfit and everything look accurate. Amazing job :heart:
