A gown of sorts, this time inspired by the Monarch Butterfly (one of my favorites)!! I wanted this one to look more regal and elegant so that it stays true to it's name!
Since I've been asked about medium multiple times, I'll just say here that this piece (along with the rest of the butterfly series and 95% of my gallery) was drawn completely in photoshop CS4 with a wacom tablet. The paper textures are added in afterwards for the traditional feel
Also, since it's already the 22nd where I am, happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate!! Here, have some virtual pumpkin pie! ---

Here's a dress design, featuring human Toothiana! She has such an awesome character design, how could I not? Her color scheme was fun to work with, as was finding ways to incorporate the wings, plumage, etc! I read through Tooth's backstory and discovered she was originally Southeast Asian, which I tried to show here. The story was really interesting, but kinda made my heart all sad :C.. Somehow I didn't expect Tooth to have a dark history I read her story here: [link] but beware of possible spoilers and sorrow..
On a more cheerful note though, I watched rotg yesterday and I loved it! I felt that the plot pacing could've been better, but the character designs, overall theme, and ANIMATION just completely blew me away!! :,D Yeah.. I'm quite obsessed right now :T.. expect more rotg from me XD
Alladin also happens to be one of my many favorite movies, so I hope I did it justice! I tried to make this one look slightly genie-like with the fabric flow and the cuffs. The whole 'freedom and lack thereof' theme is meant to be there as well! Points to those who noticed that I tried using the official 'Jasmine&dove' pose, even though it got changed quite a bit Used double color schemes again, because it's interesting seeing them side by side, I think! ^.^

This is the most un-colorful drawing I've done in a while now.. XD I know Pitch isn't even technically a guardian, but he's such an awesome villain, I decided to design something based off his character design anyway!! :,D I tried to make the dress look somewhat wispy to represent all the nightmare sand. Designing aside, I have to say, genderbending him was quite fun!

Her name is Jacqueline Frost. How does she know? The moon I told her so!
For this one, I wanted to keep the hood and the semi-puffy sleeves, as well as the right color scheme! Obviously, it turned out a lot more casual than the rest... I tried designing an elegant gown type thing, I really did!! But I scrapped it because somehow it just looked too out of character :I So simple it is! XD
On a slightly random note.. we had our first snowfall yesterday!
October, as you may or may not know, is breast cancer awareness month! So here's a sketch in honor of that.
My earliest watchers might remember my deviation to this cause from last year, in which I mentioned a friend of mine whose mother was fighting breast cancer. She was the one who made me aware of the campaign and I'm really glad to say that her mom had gone through with the surgery and is fine now! :,D There are however, many women who are still fighting, and although most people are aware of such a disease, most aren't of the early detection plans/ possible preventative precautions and such :T So if you'd like to learn more about the campaign or help with the cause, here's the website! I encourage you all to take a look see! [link]
