I love the different style of this, it's almost Burtonesque! And that dress design is fabulous- as always! :D

Ahh, thanks! This is actually an old picture of the same dress I did in my more recent one. I'm not sure exactly what was going on with her face in this picture, but I'm chalking it up to "old art stylization that isn't entirely coherent". ;) Still, I'm very glad you like it!

Alas, I'd really prefer if you didn't, since I've actually sold copies of this one before, and it tends to create some rather thorny copyright issues. =( Best of luck, though!

verrrrry pretty! I love the colours, they go perfectly, yet I wouldn't think they should. Her lips are very full and pouty, and of course her corset is lovely!

Thank you! I was going for a kind of iridescent look to the fabric, which is why the colors are all weird. I'm so glad you like it. :love:

Again, I really like how thin and elegant she is! Specially her face... it's thin, boney and elven-like. And she has cute freckles. You did a good job on the colors and texture on her dress... looks like one of those fabrics that changes colors depending of the angle of the light. And the background makes the drawing look almost like a cameo =)

Thanks so much! That's EXACTLY what I was going for with the fabric, I was hoping it came across okay even with the kind of muddled texture/pencil effect.

Ah, thanks. Yeah, ultimately I just didn't want to have to paint the brocade pattern by hand, so TEXTURE TIME! ;) Quick, easy, and a good effect to boot. Can't beat that!

Wonderful coloring and design here, it's very nice. I see some anatomy issues, particularly with her hands and the angle her torso is at. I understand that it's hard to draw people in costumes, particularly corsets because it distorts natural anatomy a bit, but that's where reference and practice comes in. :)

Personally, I thought the big issue was with the hand holding the mask (it's just so BIG! :XD:). Also, one of her eyes is off-center. :shrug: I'm pretty sure that the torso angle is fine, though. I do a LOT of costume drawings, and corset bodices generally do look like that.

I really love the expression in her face - it draws you in as if you were really seeing her after she removes her mask at a masquerade. Nice!

Thanks :) Man, this one was a bitch to clean up. The scan was a good one, but it picked up a lot of paper texture making it look dirty, and getting rid of all of that without losing the integrity of the line took HOURS. I wanted to beat my crappy scanner to death by the end =P

(Also, for the record, this was the outfit she was wearing when she and Farael first met. :heart:)
