Theme 1: Steamdress

This looks fine. Not as good as the one I have in my head, lol, but passable. I tried to put more details but blah. Practise, practise, practise.

Yes, I am going to do all of Alice's dresses in Alice: Madness Returns! All for the sake of practise. I'll be focusing on backgrounds, colouring style, drawing style (making it less anime/manga) and etc.

1. Steamdress
2.Royal Suit
3. Hattress
4. Late But Lucky
5. Classic
6. Siren
7. Silk Maiden
8. Misstiched
9. Checkmate
10. Caterpillar Dress

Critiques are welcome, yes. I need improvement. ; u ;

You really excelled yourself with this one hon :love:

The amount of detail you put on her clothes is really amazing! I love the design, especially the upper part.

The pose is really dynamic in general, but I think the lower part of her looks a bit off because it doesn't follow the general movement of the character. On the upper part the viewer is looking at her from the side, while on the lower part the round skirt and invisible leg would belong to a frontal shot! If you don't get what I mean I'll do some redlining for you (:

The colors are spot on though and I love the way you shaded the face. Also I like that you left quite a bit of space filled by background on the bottom, it makes you realize just how much danger she's in!!

It's a stunning piece overall :heart:

Woah. I really love your style. How long can you finish an artwork? It's really cool; the way you color it, the character, her dress, and all!

Aww thanks ; w ; I don't remember how long this took, but with the way my computer is running, I would say it would take maybe a week or more. ;_;

The main thing i noticed is that the way the dress seems to flare out seems a bit off . ><.
maybe thats just me though .

Ah, I sort of agree with that. xD;; I had a hard time erasing and retouching and everything with that. The drafts are 100% more AWFUL than this one. @_@ Thanks for the comment!
