============================== Sheryl Nome : Photographer : Colour Edit : Photographer Assistant : Make Up : Helpers : Costume by : Mask thanks : Illustration : [link] ==============================
Old picture is old~ In the midst of my exams now so I am digging out old photos to post~ This shoot marks the first time I had a shoot for Sheryl and with magical make up power, I looked very different~
Still grateful for photographer and helpers for helping me so much on this shoot. For helping a VERY clueless me~
Also, uploading this for A Whole New World contest~ I think the mood of the photo suits the theme~
This contest stole my life for several days. At least one day was spent on fashion research, at least one day spent conceptualizing, at least one day spent on the actual drawing of the initial references, one day inking the references, and so on and so forth. I wanted to make sure that every step of the way was well thought-out, that each character had some motivation and a reason for their style, that the background actually existed somewhere in Shibuya, and that I actually bothered to draw a background. *chuckles*
I collected over one hundred images of various men and women walking around Shibuya, as well as clips from Japanese fashion magazines and items for purchase at stores physically located in the Square. I learned perhaps more than I wanted to know about Onii-kei and its gyaru-o predecessor, including the four types of men's fashion that seemed to be prominent (look out for those HARD style guys. They glare a lot.) I also learned about wonderful brand titles like 'Blutenblatt.'
Perhaps the most concise picture for illustrating how unique some of this fashion can be is found here: [link] Whether you want to be a pirate, a pimp, a Jamaican, a cowboy, a Hell's Angel, (or all five) there is a place for you. ^.^
This is sort of the culmination of all the research. I took care of all the drawing/inking and conceptualizing, U-E took care of coordinating colors and putting them down over my ink. It is a complete diversion from what we normally do (and it was far from easy,) but I think we both learned a heck of a lot about character and scene design.
It seems that Saeru does like the full scene version, so here it is. Last one.

Leaving Wonderland for the first time, young Alice could never have imagined how quickly she would forget her new friends... or how different that world would be when she returned.
This is... two things lol. It's a cosplay, and it's a photo-manipulation. When I use elements of other people's work I take copyright stuff seriously - credit where credit is due is important, so: Here is the list of what belongs to whom:
*The White Rabbit in this photo is me, wearing a costume I conceptualized, designed and made. *The original base photo of White Rabbit was taken by =Floatyman at the Regent Theatre, Brisbane, and post-processed by me using Photoshop. *Cheshire Cat's face belongs to whoever it is that owns the rights to the character designs and graphics from the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland. *The Alice in this picture is a doll I own, and the photo it came from was taken by me, the same goes for the picture corners. *All effects in the image were done by me in Photoshop, without the use of any non-standard brushes.
