Daisy Buchanan


This illustration has been in the works for quite some time now, but I really didn't know whether to illustrate Daisy or just go with Lana to tie in with the lyrics a little more. I actually really dislike the character of Daisy Buchanan but oh well! The mansion seemed to take me ages to get right but I think that's because I'm not really used to drawing architecture so it was good to get some practise in! Anyway, I hope you guys like this one - let me know!

  4. This is so beautiful Carly, I could tell it was Daisy before I even read the post! Great job on the mansion, architecture is so hard to do I think.

    I also wasn't so keen on Daisy at the end of the book either :/

  8. THis could possibly be my new favourite. It shows such skill and talent because Daisy looks exactly as she did in the movie! Everything about this illustration is so in character. The architecture is impressive. Also, I can't thank you enough for your recent comments on my blog. It really meant a lot to me to have such a great friend.

  9. I LOVE this illustration Carly! I'm a huge fan of the film and Daisy is beautiful although she's an absolute witch. Haha! I'd love to see more Gatsby inspired pieces. This song moved me to tears the first few times I heard it, it's so beautiful. <3

    1. Thank you cutie! Aha, I can't help but feel annoyed when I think about her, horrible lady! Maybe I could draw Jordan next? I agree, the song is totally amazing, I love all of the lyrics <3 xxx

  10. Uhhhh wow! I absolutely love your work! This is so amazing, I love it. I'm glad you went with Daisy as opposed to Lana, I can't stand Daisy either but she is a pretty character and you've done a fantastic job on her. Seriously, nice one! :) If Carey had a twitter I'd totally tell you to tweet this to her!

  14. This is perfect, I can never understand how you manage to make your art look exactly like the person it is meant to look like while using bold colours. Your art is so pretty and unusual, keep it up Carly, it's so lovely!

  15. I'm probably the only person in the world who didn't read the Great Gatsby and didn't watch the movie yet, but I will! Apart from not knowing much about the story, I ADORE this illustration Carly it looks so pretty, the mansion is beautiful and so does Daisy and of course I love the fact that you included the Young and Beautiful here! xxx <3
