DV 17 - The Dress by cambium DV 17 - The Dress by cambium
Don't you hate it when your slingback stilettos slip off?

This may or may not be Draco Veritas. All we know of Ginny's dress for the wedding is that it's red, and probably voluminous. Anyway, it got me thinking about redheads in red dresses. If this corresponds to what Cassie writes, then it's DV. If not, then it's some random freckle-faced, red-haired woman in a red dress.

I wish I could wear a red dress :( My hair is just that shade of red where I look funny in red clothing

There is something so gorgeous about your little Ginny! Her dress is to fricking die for and the hair is awesome! I also love how you added the elbow crease (word?) line and the wrist bone, which gives her a more real human look.

I remember seeing this illustration a while ago, but I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't comment on it then. I love this drawing. The simple colours of the background juxtaposed against the bright red of the dress and Ginny's hair. And the dress itself is just gorgeous, I wish I could own it. xD Lovely.

She looks really beautiful. I especially love how you drew her hair, so fluid...makes me think a bit about a fairy. And the combination is really nice.

The colouring looks lovely, and the dress too. But is it just me, or is her upper body look rather long? Then it makes her arms overly gangly. Maybe she's just tall, though. :D

Also the bodice is low-waisted, it goes past her butt, and her right leg is bent, and her left leg is foreshortened. Excuses, excuses, I know. I could take reference pictures, but I'd have to use myself, and it's not like I have particularly normal proportions... or y'know... female ones. ANYWAY... thanks for the comment.

:+devwatch: I love the Red/Red combination. I'm reading the new chapter of DV today...and I must say that your art is brilliant. Glad i stumbled here! You have a very unique style that is simple...and elegant...and detailed all in one...I will just quit trying to describe it and watch you. :glomp:

Hey, yea, it's me again...I just realized that you seem to have drawn this (and a few of your others) for a particular fanfic? Is this true? and if so, where would I find it to read? Your gallery makes me want to know the story!

Yes, the fic is Draco Veritas by Cassandra Claire. It's part three of the Draco Trilogy hosted on FictionAlley. There was a bit of commotion because the second-to-last installment of DV was released today. Hope you enjoy it.

The subtlety in color is very nicely done. Working in shades of grey on your previous pieces seems to have really improved your color work. Great job.

Thank you, the inital sketch was mechanical pencil, all the colour is in Photoshop. I did a step-by-step of the technique here.

Thanks so much, it was about 5 hrs total, there were relatively few elements in the image, but it took a while to get a red that I was satisfied with.
