Old one but It still looks good. Now the gallery won't look so empty ;D!

I copied this from a picture of a model of an online goth shop where I usually go in search of some inspiration for clothes. I really liked the pose and the fabric of the dress in that particular picture. My intention was to practice a colouring technique that I read in a book, which consists in painting the picture in gray tones and then adding colour afterwards. Because it was looking really good in grayscale and everybody seemed to prefer it that way I decided to leave it as it is. It looks a bit realistic and, even though it's not what I first had in mind, it still turned out fine and it's good for practice. Maybe there is hope for me in C.G. :D

Due to popular demand ;D, here's the website where I got the reference photo from:


The photo still exists on the website! Looks smaller than I remember it to be...
The Original Photo

They have great photos! The photographer wasn't only concerned about showing the clothes but also about giving the right feel and atmosphere to it.
The photographer's name is Paolo Frunzio and the model is Valeria Sinistrari.

I like it. Love the detail. Woman kinda looks like, to me, a mix of Amy Lee and Morticia Adams.

Was on an auction site I frequent and someone tried to pass this work off as their own! It has been dealt with, but thought you'd like to know your work is so good, other people wish they had drawn it!

Oh! That's really bad specially because this is a gray scale study of a really nice photo that I can't find anymore :(!
Thank you for your compliment. :) I´m really happy that you liked it!

I wish you had told me I found the pic when we were researching it. It is still on the site under long dresses I believe! :3
