Zodiac by kitton Zodiac by kitton
A really really old piece I decided to dig up (mostly becaues I'm scannerless. So I only have old, scanned lineart to work with...)

Mostly I was just having fun texturizing it. I know theres a lot of abrupt, unfinished looking lines (especially on the mat and the bottom of the couch) but it was a fairly bad scan and I didn't feel like digitally reinking and stuff. And obviously its supposed to be fashion art so thats why she's so long (even though it does bug me a bit, meh)

I used a fewww photoreferences from some old vogue magazines but like I said its old so I don't recally exactly which one or which photos sorry. It wasn't anything too drastic, I nabbed the pose though :3

[edit:] those are stars on her dress, not sparkles. The constellation is Orion.

I used my own textures for this: [link]

may i be able to somehow redraw the dress on her onto a model? because i just love how it is textured, i might change the style of the dress though.

this is really beautiful! I love the color contrast from her muted environment to the rich tones of her dress. The flow in this is totally amazing, and so are her boobs. XD really, they look fantastic. Also, I totally adore the star-scheme for the skirt. Totally gorgeous! ^_^

Thanks so much! I like the dress, too :) I dunno about the folds... I took an interest in them when I was younger so I always had put emphasis on them.. guess practice makes perfect :)

okay, I REALLY like that dress. there is no denying that I love that dress. I am such a sucker for rainbow colors. but I have to say I think your choice of photoshop applied texture for the couch was not a very good one. it looks like crinkly fabric but not in a way that helps the image--as applied to the couch, it actually makes the couch look like stone. her body isn't sinking into it at all! I'll believe a wrinkly couch, but I think the wrinkles in the upholstry ought to give some sense of the weight hanging against it. as it is, it kind of looks like her whole body--and the dress too--have been cut out and pasted onto a picture of a couch.

It's not a photoshop texture ;) It's my own! I chose really obvious textures for a reason. I'm not trying to get defensive or anything and I totally appreciate your crit, but it's just not what I was after :) I wanted it to look a bit cut and paste... I get that from my mixed media influence in all of my art.
