I made this a few months ago for my good friend 's wedding. The empty banner is where their names were but I thought it best to keep that private.
I did this even before I knew what the theme of her wedding was, which just happened to be "Happily Ever After" and peacocks! haha Great minds think alike... But I knew she love fairy tales so I wanted to do something that looked like a classic storybook! I am quite proud of this piece!
I finished this months ago but for some reason I forgot to post it...
I actually really liked how this design turned out! It is similar to the original concept art version but with some elaborations. Mainly the gold ribbon and bow at the empire waist and the beading on the bodice.
So I saw the Katy Perry movie the other day and it was AMAZING!!! I love Katy even more now! I was inspired by the movie to make a dress for the song "Firework" which would actually light up. I also imagine that the "fireworks" would be animated to look like the fireworks are actually going off. Is this possible...? I don't know! ha ha
The past few days I have spent alot of time sketching out ideas of gowns for Vanessa(Ursula) from The Little Mermaid. I was trying to make a "Princess" gown that she could wear in the context of the movie but then I decided to play around with some more 'fashionista' concepts.
I obviously was HEAVILY inspired by the 'Designer Collection' from the Disney Store and yes I did use the same background. I love that the gowns for the Princess line were based on retro 50's fashion, while the Villain Gowns were based on modern high fashion. A perfect contrast!
For this gown I wanted it to be sexy and dramatic. I kept some details from the actual dress Vanessa wears in the movie, and then made it more form fitting and added the poofy tule trane.
Also I think that if you are going to make Ursula skinny you might as well show her in her sexy human form.
I know that this is not a completely original, but I hope you like it!
Welcome Princess Merida to the "Retro Paper Doll Collection!" I can't wait for "Brave!" It looks like an awesome movie with a wonderful, strong heroine. And she has awesome hair!
Merida does not seem like the "dress up" kinda princess, but she does have some pretty awesome outfits! I decided that I wanted to make a Merida paper doll after seeing the new trailer and I discovered that she had more than one outfit! ha ha
So, until the official dolls and toys come out maybe you can have some fun with this!
On a side note, this took about 2.5 hours so I might fix it up later.
As you may already know, I LOVE the Phantom of the Opera! And I absolutely ADORE Maria Bjornson's designs for the show! Brilliant!!! Obviously Christine has a stunning wardrobe, but Carlotta's is equally gorgeous! I had such a fun time reasearching photos for these becasue no two productions are exactly alike. Although the design remains the same each productions costumes have minor differences. I tries to remain true to the original designs and added bits and pieces from different version that liked.
My personal favorite Carlotta costumes are the red "notes" gown, the Elissa gown, and the Don Juan gown.
Here Glinda sits in a moment of reflection. She mourns the loss of her best friend (the lilies), and at the same time she hopes for a bright future (the Daffodils.) She can't let her emotions show because she has to be strong and lead the the people of Oz.
Quick comment: I accidently uploaded this twice somehow...so if you fave the other one please fave this one!
I've been practicing drawing Maleficent lately and I've really enjoyed it! She is such a gorgeous, elegant character...even if she is evil! ha ha I also played around with a few new outfit designs...a little bit more modern tho, similar to the "Designer Villains."
Well, this is quite different from my usual! I hope you all still like it!
I recently purchased a book featuring the art of Alfonse Mucha, whom I have loved for years! His art is so elegant and stylish! He draws the most GORGEOUS hands, they are very "princess-y!" While adoring his art I realized that he almost never drew males, most of his work features women with long hair and flowy gowns. So I decided to take a crack at a Mucha style and practice drawing males.
