The original size, in fact, is 12121 x 2547 px (very big!)
I really looove making fashion designs. But I have never thought of submitting them, because... I don't know. But I will start to do it more!
I really wanted to do some designs inspired by the autumn-winter seasons (which I am current into). My main inspiration sources to create those designs were: the autumn itself (the hot and brown tones) north american indians, animal fur (synthetic!), some nature elements (flowers, bright colors), night (all the sparkles, purple-bluish tones, and elegant dresses), and of course, my own dreams. : ) I have not made any research at all, as well I am not a professional or even a fashion student, so please don't be harsh on me.
I hope you enjoy at least one of those!
Edit: Oh this got a DAILY DEVIATION! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
First off, this will be my first time critiquing outside of my art classes so I'll be critiquing the way I was taught. I hope you don't mind lengthy critiques, danydiniz. And I honestly think the stars don't mean quite much when it comes to actual critiquing but I'll fill them in anyway.
Description: You use an array of colors on the left side ranging from warm colors to cool colors. On the right side, you mainly use a range of browns and greens. A few of these dresses look exotic while the others look very elegant. Each dress varies greatly in detail and design.
Analysis: Line: You used a variety of lines, ranging from curved to straight, and have used them repetitively to add more depth and detail to each of your dresses. You didn’t put emphasis on one line alone, which is good, because the lines work well together like that for these dresses.
Shape: This piece is dominated by freeform shapes and upon closer inspection; the viewer can see all the small details like all the circles you’ve put in to make these dresses stand out more.
Form: You’ve added depth to these dresses by using varying shades of colors to make them look more three-dimensional.
Texture: This is a major element in these dresses. From the way you used various lines, some of these dresses look like they were made of soft material, like the bottom part of the dress for ‘Native American’. It seems like I can just run my fingers through it and it’d be soft to the touch. Other dresses, particularly the coat from ‘Wild Urban’, looks like it was made from fur. The head ornaments and jewelry look smooth and solid. Some of the shoes and purses/handbags look to be made of leather.
Value/Tone: The six dresses on the left uses a variety of colors whilst the six dresses on the right uses mainly varying shades of browns, greens and oranges. You used pure white to add highlights to things like jewelry and decorations for the dresses, shoes, head ornaments and stockings.
Color: You used both warm and cool colors for these dresses.
Balance: The image overall is balanced except for the dress ‘Wind Garden’. That dress is a lot brighter than the rest, mainly because you used just blue and white for it.
Rhythm & Movement: The details in the dresses and hair give movement to the image so it brings this to life.
Emphasis & Variety: You used a variety of lines as well as colors for each dress. To me, ‘Wind Garden’ seems to be the dress my eye goes to first because, as I mentioned in the previous paragraph, it is the brightest dress out of all of them.
Harmony & Unity: Overall, all elements and principles work well with each other and are visually pleasing to the viewer’s eyes.
Interpretation: Basically all of these ladies seem to be heading out to a party of some sort or are strutting down the runway to pose their dresses. ‘Intellectual Vanity’, in particular, seems like the type of dress you would wear to a tango/salsa party.
Judgment: Overall, while the idea of designing dresses for a season isn’t very original, the dresses themselves were very well crafted and are indeed original and unique in their own rights. These dresses are visually stunning and the colors, particularly for ‘Intellectual Vanity’, are amazingly vivid. Upon closer inspection, you can see all the detail and effort you put into these dresses, and anyone can see your love for fashion designing from these.
I’m going to say that the dress that absolutely stole my heart is ‘Intellectual Vanity’. I absolutely love the colors you used for this particular dress, especially the ruffles on the bottom. It makes it look like her dress is on fire and that is a wonderful way to showcase your talent for designing clothes.
Congratulations on the Daily Deviation. You definitely deserve it with these wonderful, eye-catching designs.
I'm not an expert in fashion, so forgive me if my review is innacurate. (Acronyms in use.)
WG- Suiting the theme perfectly with its pastel collors and flowing shape
S- Doesn't suit theme at all. Something green and/or cream colored and simple would be better. I also find this gaudy.
NA- Beautiful and mostly suiting, though the hairpeice is way to large to be practical.
ML- Many would think of moonlight as to be represented only by cold colors and smoothness but your frilly, warm interpretation suits wonderfully! Perhaps my favorite, but I find the high-cut front to be used too much, but then again I never liked dresses with high-cut fronts to be nice in the first place.
NF-With its dark colors and floral pattern It suits the tite quite well.
IV- I have nothing to say except "It's beautiful."
ST- The shape and color scheme cause the "soft" part of its name to be a misnomer, but I love the design anyway.
UI- Suits wonderfully and very unique.
WU- While it fits the title well it's way too wild to actually look good. I find it to be too bulky for its vivid color accents.
NF- Well suited and of fair appearance for the most part, but what the heck is going on with the huge ball of flowers above the left shoulder?
EM- Fitting but still with your own twist makes this one my favorite of the group which if tied only with ML. MP- A gaudy, predictable misnomer. Excepting the hat, I find this to be the attire of a rich snob with delusions of grandeur. The pattern resembles fish scales and the color is the bright yellow-green-brown of many unpleasant things. As if that wasn't bad enough, the puffy, black feathers add a disproportionate appearance to the outfit.
First of all i love this! 2nd of all, i am a complete newbie to deviantart, and i was wondering, how do you make this?! Did you draw it and then scan it in onto the computer, or did you make it onto the computer, or ___? The designs look so crisp and professional, i would love to know how you made it!
Thank you very much! I draw and color my art directly on computer, using the software Adobe Photoshop CS5 and a tablet (intuos4). Thank you for your interest and compliments, and if you have any more questions feel free to ask!
Woah, perhaps it's my favourite of all! i think you deserved the DD. I really like the colours and shapes, to be honest I'd LOVE to see these kinds of illustrations in a children's book: so much details to wonder around for the eyes and such wonderful colour combos - I know I would have loved it as a kid.
WHOAH. You are definitely without hesitation a talented designer! I really admire people who can come up with such beautiful, diverse styles, whether in clothes or in a creature's looks; I always struggle with such details, color combinations, and actually creating something very creative. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. Love it!
