Bowtie character sketches




I have decided i will be using a standard bow tie as opposed to a ribbon bow tie. I'm still yet to decide on how the finalised version will look, but I do have a good idea of it.

Some Fastidious Examples

I've gathered some images to make life easier defining the meaning of fastidious.

EXAMPLES:


1. A man making sure every blade of grass is the same length...


Although the length of the grass all being equal doesnt really matter to anyone else, it does to the fastidious father. He will slowly go over the grass, making sure its as perfect as it can be. If he didnt do this, the fact that something may not be perfect will play on his mind all day..

2.  E.g. 2: A Picky Eater


This child is a picky eater, he will only eat what he likes. This can in some ways be described as being fastidious.

3. Punctilious (picture explains itself)




Keywords: Obsessive, Perfectionist, Meticulous, careful, scrupulous, punctilious, careful, difficult to please; dainty; choosy; critical

Synonyms: meticulous, painstaking, careful, scrupulous, fastidious, punctilious


Careful suggests circumspection and solicitude: A careful examination of the gem showed it to be fake.

Scrupulous suggests care prompted by conscience: "Cynthia was scrupulous in her efforts to give no trouble" (Winston Churchill).

Fastidious implies concern, often excessive, for the requirements of taste: "Your true lover of literature is never fastidious" (Robert Southey).

Punctilious specifically applies to minute details of conduct: "The more unpopular an opinion is, the more necessary is it that the holder should be somewhat punctilious in his observance of conventionalities generally" (Samuel Butler).
These adjectives mean showing or marked by attentiveness to all aspects or details. Meticulous and painstaking stress extreme care: "He had throughout been almost worryingly meticulous in his business formalities" (Arnold Bennett). Repairing the fine lace entailed slow and painstaking work.

I enjoy drawing from foreshortening angles, so this lesson was good.

Introducing: The Fastidious Bow-Tie






For my new project I have a Fastidious Bow-tie. Fastidious is defined in the dictionary to mean:


  • Very attentive to and concerned about accuracy and detail
    • he chooses his words with fastidious care




  • Very concerned about matters of cleanliness
    • the child seemed fastidious about getting her fingers sticky or dirty

  • Fastidious implies concern, often excessive, for the requirements of taste: "Your true lover of literature is never fastidious" (Robert Southey).
     
    With this in mind i think my object and word go hand in hand, the bow-tie is an accessory worn on occasions such as weddings, diner parties and other formal events. A bow-tie reflects style and high class, and the word fastidious would work well as it isnt out of place when talking about/describing a bow-tie; they are both very particular things.
