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: riseoftheguardians.wikia.com/w… but beware of possible spoilers and sorrow..
On a more cheerful note though, I watched rotg yesterday and I loved it! 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
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! ---
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!
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! ^.^
Tumblr'd here: [link] Please reblog instead of posting! ^.^
Here's another rotg inspired outfit, this time based off Nicholas St. North, just in time for Christmas! Apart from the original outfit, I also tried to incorporate elements from traditional Russian sarafans as well, with the puffy sleeves and patterned line going down the middle. I was extremely tempted to give her swords, but decided against it. XD The extra sketches are just there because genderbent North looked a little lonely by herself, and what better company than elfie, Rudolf, and real!North? Besides, I didn't really want to upload them separately :T
