This looks great!! It reminds me of the lyrics "And together we clung in the bloodletting moonlight" - Cradle of Filth's lyrics. I dont particularly like them, but meh.

I love the red butterflies, gives a really dramatic effect :clap:

Hehe I bet it did! I was thinking "Wow she lined all that up! I would have faked in some sort of silly lace or something to cover up the seam."

after a crapload of trial and error - here's my tip in case you give it a go (or something like it anyway ;))...you can position the bottom part of the skirt overtop of the main dress part - then gradually decrease the opacity on the airbrush eraser and go along the top edge of the red part (or the bottom) ;)

That way - you can see some of those folds inside the main skirt or dress through the bottom part/extention - and I don't need to tell you how freaking long it took to come up with such a stupidly easy solution :shakefist:.

I figure if I share it enough it'll feel like it was worthwhile :lmao:!

Ooo that is a decent idea. I would have tried setting the layer at 50% and drawing it in or moving it around with smudge or something much more time consuming.

Beautiful work - especially the selective coloring on her dress. I think it's just something to do with the fullview size, but her eyes look a little odd for some reason. :shrug:

oibyrd Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes I agree - partially due to my heavy hand with the burn and dodge - and partially due to the hair render overlay that I probably could've positioned better ;)

towards the end I was so tired - I gave up and zipped through to complete. :blush:
