Feather Dress by keh-arts Feather Dress by keh-arts
*please full view*

This took foreverrrrr ~ but it was relaxing.
The character is Alice from my comic which will maybe exist one day, and the overall concept/design is based on an old chinese print mug of my dads I found while at their house recently.

I just really liked the colours and the birds. The crackly BG was on the mug.

The lineart isn't quite right, but I had fun blending markers together on the feathers :)

Prints are available in my Etsy Shop!

An absolutely beautiful piece, and I respect the fact that it is traditional medium. Alcohol based inks?

This is really beautiful! I love how every inch of it is coloured, there are no gaps anywhere it looks flawless! I think you should do big prints of it, would make a lovely front cover for a collection of your work I reckon actually! :D I wish I could draw hands as good as you :)

This is amazing Katie. The sheer vibrancy of the colouring for one is wonderful, it looks so smooth and touchable.

I wish I could give you a comment even half as amazing as this is.

I love the branches and berries in the background and then how they're in her hair <3 It makes her part of the scenery.

And. That. Dress. OMFG.
