Historically Accurate Jane Porter by Bambi-Killer Historically Accurate Jane Porter by Bambi-Killer
Jane Porter, girlfriend of Tarzan.
Wikipedia says that Tarzan was published in 1912, and that Jane was from Baltimore, not from England (as Disney made her come from).
So I drew her in a late edwardian dress :)
Hope you like her!

She looks lovely, but I prefer her normal look better. Also I could not imagine her being American and not English.

I like it a lot. I love the character and I just finish reading the book "Jane, the Woman Who Loved Tarzan" It was written from her POV. Love the book. :excited:

I think I like Jane better as a brunette English woman than a blonde American as depicted in the book

I don't know if you saw some of Jane's concept art, but I think she had much more personnality when she was a real edwardian brunette than she does in the movie.

Acctuly, I was just expressing the diffrent physical and ethical portrayals of Jane Porter. From being a 19 year old, blonde haired American from Baltimore, Md in the books. To her being a 20-something year old, brunette Brit from London, England in the movies. Hey, in the tv series from the early 90s she was French. But i still like her character better as a brunette English woman, it suites her perfectly, and her father as well.

And I believe that i am alot like Jane in a way; we're both timid, yet willing to seek adventure, we love animals, love to draw, and we both love our men wild, and with long hair.

Finally, someone realizes she wouldn't be wearing bustles in the 1910s, let alone in the middle of a jungle! :D That's been irking me for a while. *History geek*

Very nice; love the movie and the clothing style!

Thanks a lot! Yes, when I read that the book was published in 1912, i said to myself "wait... bustle?! NO F*CKING WAY !!"
Edwardian fashion is my favorite era, so i enjoyed myself a lot doing this :)

Very nice dress

If I have any criticism at all, it's the shoes. By 1912, button shoes, while still being worn by some, were seriosly unfashionable, at least amount women as young as Jane presumably is/was. They would have sort of marked you as "old fashioned". It was still fasionable to wear gaiters over your shoes when the weather was wet/muddy, but those would be a lot higher (they'd sort of make her feet look like they did in the disney version). And the raised skirtline and lowered vamps of the fashions of the times meant that a LOT more fashion emphasis was placed on stockings, so it is unlikey she'd be going unclad. Just my opinion
