Hello fellow artists:)
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 [u]references[/u], 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 [url="http://www.marta-dahlig.com/foregoneref.jpg"]here [/url].
