Opera Costume - Agrippine by FionaCreates Opera Costume - Agrippine by FionaCreates
More of an exercise than a proper drawing.

Within dolling I have always found it easy to construct material and make it appear the texture and flow that I want it to be, but I have had issues with it in the land of drawing. So when OrnamentedBeing posted some fabulous Opera Costumes I fell in love with this one and had to draw it.

In a way it's just a giant doll really.. XD

Reference and information about the Dress can be seen --> Here

You interpreted it very well and created the perfect model for it! I could tell the eggplant part was velvety before I looked at the reference.

Even though it's an old dress I wanted my drawing to feel contemporary, hence the hairstyle and such of the model, instead of something pulled back and traditionally opera. My own stamp as it were.

And yes I'm v happy with how all the textures turned out, esp considering it's a technical exercise and that was the point. Now I just need to figure out a proper illustration with which to use these new found skillz XD
