Tissot for high-grade fashion illustration.

Yeah, Tissot seems very much an illustrator to me, with everything posed as if a scene from a serialized novel, and carefully colored in. I don't know why that should bug me, but it does, a little. I'm going with Titian as a much stronger artist--especially for his portraits, which aren't represented in this sample.

I expected to vote for Titian, but instead will vote for Tissot. Both feel staged, but Tissot's are more realistic and colorful. Granted, Tissot had a 3 century head start, but I'm not going to give extra points for difficulty level.
