If I had to point out any flaws in this, I'd have to go with the anatomy; that's a very small waist she has, to the point where it's unrealistic. If you would expand it a little, then the overall figure would be fine.

I have to say that the "bulb" on top of her head looks a little out of place. If you had put it on her back, that would be in keeping with the look and feel of the Pokemon character. You could've also have shown off a bit of her hair and style it up into something of a gorgeous hairdo of your choice. Maybe you could throw in some leaves and vines to go along with it. Also, I suggest coloring the eyes red, and the skin greenish cyan to resemble the character's likeness.

The dress itself looks rather plain. I can see what you were trying to do, but it really doesn't strike me as visually appealing. I feel as if you should have more of a nature-theme to go with the character's costume, as it reflects the character's type. You could have borrowed a few designs from your submission "Green Hope - May", and implemented them into this costume. For instance, you could done a leaf motif for it, like having a few large, decorative leaves to cover the lower part of the body.

I've seen your work before, and I just needed a single look from one of your submissions before I instantly put your gallery on my watch-list. I know you can do better. This work seems rather rushed, and compared to the rest of your submissions, this is sub-par. If I come across as harsh in my critique, please, feel free to ignore it and dismiss me as a massive idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about (I probably am, as I am no such fashion expert myself). I hope my evaluation of your work helped, and I look forward to any deviant work you produce in the near future. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

This is a fashion design. It is not necessary to draw a perfect anatomy, it shall not be too realistic. Some designers draw extremely long arms, or necks, or legs, it's up to their style.
I added green make-up on her skin, I didn't mean to make a Gijinka. The dress is the gijinka. The look is the gijinka. But this is not the human form of Bulbasaur.

I respect your statement regarding the anatomy of the character. I had not realized it was your style of drawing your characters. I haven't visited that part of your gallery yet.

As for the Gijinka, I meant for the dress to reflect the feel of the character Bulbasaur. However, yes, I understand your intentions in creating your submission. Please, feel free to disregard my critiques if you wish. The whole point of creativity is to experiment and continue using new ideas, despite what the critics say you should do. Keep your inspiration strong and never cloud the right-side of your brain with doubts. :)

sin duda es un hermoso vestido con un gran diseño original
el gran detalle y diseño inspirado en bulbasaur sin duda es muy original y merece ser llamado una obra del arte tal vez el único detalle que no me gusta es el adorno de la cabeza a pesar de estar inspirado en bulbasaur siento que le quita elegancia al vestido y la verdad el detalle de los látigos junto con el collar fue un gran y hermoso detalle tambien me gusta la mezcla de diferentes tonos de verde te felicito de verdad te luciste en este diseño tan hermoso

Well, I'm not a fashion critic, and though I just read the critique by YouReadMyUserName, I just wanted to say that I thought this was gorgeous. I love how each piece of work you create seems to capture the essence of what you're making, you have innate talent for creating these dresses and I think it's amazing. I was somewhere else, and I saw all your social network dresses and came here to check you out. If you ever do a kickstarter, or something like that, I would entirely support you. And, I don't know if you already did them, but a charmander and squirtle dress just seem necessary now. :)

Bulbasaur definitely translated well into this dress. Her neckline and "hair" draws the attention to both the bulb and down to the dress. And keeping the dressed flared at the bottom was a great touch.

You can do even character dresses... That one looks a little like a fairy, maybe it's the colour. It's really pretty and I'd love to see someone wearing this.
