BIRD OF PARADISO by CielElric BIRD OF PARADISO by CielElric
:D This Latin Salsa dance dress is based off the black Bird of Paradise with blue, aqua, green scales on its neck area. :D

Very sketchy but i love the way I drew this girl's eyes. LOL! I think this is the first attempt to draw these type of eyes for my models. XD XD XD

Well, yeah, those green dots on the black are bad but they're meant to be diamonte crystals on the chiffon. ^^;

Ingat hari tu kata sibuk sampai pertengahan tahun depan...? Tak pa lah. Baguih la kalau boleh layan lagi.

**Had read a topic about the fashion world idealizing beauty in women as being skin and bones among others...** ...Ahhh, lantaklah.

Merambu-rambu! Memang seksi. Tapi entah kenapa, nampak semak la skirt tu. Dia punya 'top' tu canteeeek.

Macamana pun, ni hanyalah pandangan seorang yang jahil tentang fesyen. Sori aa?

Semua yang suke melukis mmg procrastinator, kapish? :D

Simple pasal I kena buat skirt tu aje yang difficult. Yang top I just drape the see through material, buy choker, attach to it. Then get a halter neck bra, adorn it with diamonte with the shape of a wing... and yeah... thats about it. XD

OH MY GOD I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. O__O H-how do you come up with these desgins?! Yer amazing. @_@ I love the colors. I love her hair, and i really, REALLY like that hair piece (it dreally does remind me of a bird). And i.. like her eye shadow. o_O I like her top lots, althoguh i didn't notice the aqua-blue diamonds until i read yr descriptions.. but i like the bikini-top's design. AND THE SKIRT IS FAAABULOUS. I don't care if it's sketchy -- i think it's nice that way. And i notice that yougot a little lazy with the shoes, but it still gives you an idea of what they look like. XD

And, i like how you shade skin.. >_> How are you so good at drawing/coloring proper anatomy?! ;_;

@w@ Well, before we start designing, we have a set of inspiration board... i guess picking up some elements from there helps.

Thanks so much~ Er... i guess it comes with observation and u have to do trial and errors on paper, as often as u could. :) I used to draw every day... and it took me very long to improve. ><;

0o0!!!!Awsome design!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! However, I do think I'd like it more without the excess "tail" material on the dress...then again, it is salsa. Cool all the way around. And yes, her eyes are fenominal!!! :]

Yeah, this would be difficult to dance in but lect say this is for exhibition purpose as in costume wear not for the formal salsa. ^_^

NOOOOOOOZE! The attack is still coming! XDXD

I usually hate really short skirts, but this one looks great... all the transperant lacy tails are a great use of the Birds of Paradise idea... The tiny top drags all the attention to the dress... which is goood~

Will you be making this one, or is this just staying as design?
