She's up all night 'til the sun [dunzo]

Post by Tals » Tue Dec 03, 2013 11:47 am

LET'S KEEP THIS SONG LYRIC TRAIN ROLLING.
Spoiler: show
My person likes a particular shade of pink and green, cupcakes, and Alice in Wonderland. I'm going to attempt to combine the three somehow, baselessly. And maybe even with a background. We'll shall see how this works.

Rough sketch is rouuuuuugh. But I did want to prove that I am, in fact, doing something XD

Yay, our team!
That sounds like a fun combination. Have you got any plans for a background, if you do end up doing one?

You can tell this is going to be a rather whimsical piece just based on all the aspects going into it!
The sketch is adorable, can't wait to see what comes of it! :)

@ LucyKitsch: You know when Alice goes down the rabbit and comes upon the table with the key and the drink that makes her shrink and the cake that makes her grow? That one. But that's iffy at the moment =D

Yes, I know exactly what you're talking about.
As good as the WIP is for Alice, I'm pretty sure it's going to be epic.
I love her hair, especially.

That's looking good. And love your current background idea.

I don't see anything wrong with the dress shading myself except maybe needing a little more shadow under the apron parts to separate and add depth.

For the dress, it might be the shape that's bugging you. The shape seems similar to those 50s dresses which are cone shaped. I already tried to help someone else on Rehearsals with a similar dress, so I'll post here my explanation and some references for the skirt.

References (all from OMG that dress!):
Ref. 1
Ref. 2 I like the shape of this one.
Ref. 3 This one has a sharper shape and may not look as cute as other designs, but it's a good reference for folds.
Ref. 4 The cone shape on this one is somehow lost; it's rounder, sort of puffy, and seems perfect for a young girl's dress. I can see Alice wearing a skirt similar to this one. I would make it slightly wider at the bottom of the skirt, though.
Ref. 5 I couldn't resist adding this one, even if it doesn't show anything new in terms of your current needs. It's a gorgeous dress and can help with some of the folds.

Bear in mind that, given the time Alice lived in, she could be wearing layers upon layers of underskirts, so you can add as much puffiness as you see fit.

As I told you, I already helped (or tried to) someone else with a similar dress. Here's the thread I made two posts there, if the one with the explanation doesn't show up by clicking the link, scroll down. I'll add the images I used, they may give you some ideas.

General shapes and things to consider when working with these dresses.

My own sketch taking into account the points shown in the first picture.

And Parker has some lovely advice.

Thank you all so much! <3 And especially Parker for the refs!

@ bookhobbit: So glad that you love her face! I was a little concerned she looked kind of...derpish.

Per Parker's tutorial =)

Excuse the mess, I redrew the skirt, then added a petticoat, then did not like the new skirt, so am redrawing the skirt and am going to redraw the petticoat (I'm using MS Paint, so no layers, alas). Fixed the pinafore too.

Double Post of Shamelessness!

For the first time in two days, I woke up without a migraine so wanted to try to get close to finished just in case. Of course, now I have a headache =/

Does the table look like glass? I'm not sure; to me it just looks transparent.

Still needs shadows and the tile needs fixing.

If it had a few highlights it would be more like glass.

This looks lovely! I love the whole composition and the colors chosen. :)

I agree about the table. ^ But other than needing some highlights, it looks great!
I love your colour palette, oh my gods.
