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
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
20 out of 21 deviants thought this was fair.

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. :)

I didn't think it was possible to make a Nintendo monster's design be turned in to Couture.

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. :)

I'm curious to see your rendition of pikachu family dress :D
SakuTsukeru12 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.

this is so super cool!! I kinda wanna make it~

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.

A pokemon based dress~
It's beautiful.

I adore this dress, though with the leaves/leaf(?) , i'm very curious as to how the back of this dress looks.

Might I suggest a Lugia dress next?
I think that would be lovely~

love this, wonderful work once again.
slice-of-insanity Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
I love the idea of Pokemon-inspired dresses (and the title of this piece is very, very cute ). My only criticism for this dress is it feels a little busy and not nearly unified enough. The cutout on the belly seems a little random (a teardrop?); the design would look far more unified if it echoed the shape of the tiny cutouts at the bottom edge of the dark green middle section (I love what you did there, by the way; the negative space of the cutouts echoes the positive space of the shapes below). The leaves on the waist are a cute touch, but they're not echoed anywhere else in the design; same with the tissue-paper-like fabric at the bottom of the dress.

Otherwise, I love it. The bulb-hat makes me laugh every time. ;)
