This is my latest work, done for the ImagineFX Issue 23 Style guide workshop.
I wanted to depict a typical subject (especially for myself) - "women in gowns", but add a small twist to it. I meant the title to point to what I wanted to picture and how can it all be interpreted, so I believe no more explanation is necessary.
Around 60 hours or so spent, done in Painter and Photoshop. Quite a lot of references, which were found through google images. Also, I must admit I was greatly inspired and tried to slightly stylize the character as Cate Blanchett in the role of Elizabeth. You can see the references here .
