The Black Dress Again by pretty-lotus The Black Dress Again by pretty-lotus
So once again I have drawn The Black Dress, because it seems to be a very popular design. I submitted the second version of it to DA almost exactly a year ago, and it can be found here: [link] .

Just a few things have changed because I drew this picture out of town with no reference to the old ones, and some of the things I couldn't remember too well ended up being wrong. Anyway, some things I like better, some things I don't.

The drawing itself I'm not too proud of, and I'll have to beg forgiveness for the background. (It was the first thing I got a chance to actually color in a veeeryy long time so I went photoshop/sparkly-star-things happy~) Anywho, it ended up a lot sparklier...

-Edit-
I added/fixed/altered a couple of things. Like the background... I think it was stupid to make it so dark because it distracted from the dress, which is... Black. So it has been lightened up a ton. But as of now the image doesn't seem to be working all that well so please full view to see it...

Wow, it's very pretty. It's interesting to see how your art has improved, looking at that old picture. Both are really cool designs. I want a dress like that! Oh, and the shading on it is supurb! ^.^

This is just so elegant and regal......I love it! It reminds me of something a dark princess would wear! I love the way the skirt folds look! I also like the look of the silk (is that what it is?) and the lace together.
Just stunning.

I think the shading is much better on this, you get a better feel of what the dress should look like.. Her skin is very well done too.
