steampunk couture - 324 by unsolvedenigma steampunk couture - 324 by unsolvedenigma
This is a piece ive been thinking about drawing for over 8 months and finally took pencil to paper.
(i'm sorry hatty for taking so long)

ive been drawing some each day so its taken me about a week to finish it. i wouldnt say the hours are countless (i can count really high) but there have been alot. :3

with any luck and lots of time, it might turn into a wire statue with hand stitched clothes courtesy of a good friend. :heart:

.5 mech/printer paper/PS for combining girl + decorative background & touchups.
textured background is from [link]
pose ref - took some pix of myself in mirror. xD wont be posting those lol

:3

Woah that's gooorgeous :la: Must be awesome to be able to draw your ideas like this *_*
If you ever get the chance to make this/let it be made for you (less stressing alternative :p but also sliiiightly more expensive I'm afraid xD) you should totally do it :| This would be such an epic costume :heart:

thank you!
the belt would have be modified if this was ever made - too constricting for walking. XD

Haha slightly restricting, yes :D Even the skirt itself is too tight for walking I think xD Makes you shuffle around instead of actual walking :p
But, I was thinking: maybe if you'd put the belt a bit higher (around the hips) that it wouldn't be so restrictive anymore. Because it IS a nice steampunk detail so would be a shame to totally leave it out if you'd ever got the chance to make the costume :p

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE ENTIRE OUTFIT! So pretty~ * A* <333

The mixing of trad en digital media is almost unnoticable! I mean, I only noticed it because you said it. * u*

Glad you finally got around to making this, I know you were planning on this piece before. OuO

I love how you've used the best of digital art and to add a certain flair to this piece! This entire work of art was perfectly executed in both the traditional and digital mediums. The figure is simply gorgeous! Easily the best piece of art I've viewed so far today! :)

thank you! im glad you didnt think that the digital texture wasnt too much of a cop out. ^^:
i really want to be able to draw the whole background but it was very slow goings and i think i just need to start small and work my way up.
im flattered - ty ty C:

I thought it was drawn at first! I really think that sometimes digital is just an extended traditional drawing tool. This is one of those instances. It's a very lovely piece. :hug:
