Ravene by dahlig Ravene by dahlig
Lately I have been working on a series of tutorials for IMAGINEFX by Future publishing.
This artwork was made specifically for the Gown Painting and Decorating Tutorial.

The tutorial covers the detailed process of painting the whole dress, starting with a basic sketch to coloring and decorating with lace and embroidery.

So... if you want to see how this was done, check out IMAGINEFX Issue 3! :)



The image was done in Painter 7 with some aid from Photoshop CS2 (stone textures); around a week of hard work ;)

Here's some closeups:

This is great! Well done. If you ever want to... you should make an animal series.

This... is gorgeous! The dress itself is colored beautifully, and I love the creamy drape of it! This blue is a great representative of the raven! And the model beautiful!

I'm working on a "Fairy" right now. Got about 4 hrs into the base sketch. I'll get it up on mine soon. I've been away for a while, it's nice to be back.

Just thought you should know that I saw this (awesome) piece on a facebook app here:[link]

I thought I'd link you in case you didn't know it was there. (And, seeing as how it's been altered slightly, I figured you probably didn't.) Just a heads up!

Keep up the great work! (I especially love the dress in this piece - the fabric/folds came out beautifully!)
