This is my submission to *WSTopDeck's Theme Contest. I did this just today. I was going over several ideas in my for this contest but then I just fell to doodling a dress. I remembered that one of the themes was "rose" so I tried to make a dress with a "rosy" kind of theme. It was supposed to be my character Rhianna, I suppose it still could be, but it's not exactly a period-correct dress. (I'm trying to go more Carolingian-Byzantine style in dress for them rather than a just braod "medieval" dress)

I got the background picture from here: [link]

So pretty! Great with the folds, and all the patterns without looking busy. And with the colours it's like Christmas meets St. Valentine's day! :xmas::heart:

Hehehe, :XD: yeah, it kind of does look like that! I usually am very color-stupid and just randomly throw colors together and hope it turns out right. This was one of those cases. :XD: My little sister said the gold made her dress look dirty. XD

The draping effect of her dress and the skirt gathers are lovely! She's gorgeous, too.

Oooh, I love the draping, especially how her overdress is gathered. I like those sleeves too! One does not see many short-sleeved gowns of that general style. She's absolutely lovely, and best of luck in the contest!

Thanks! I kind of made the dress up as I went, I drew some inspiration for several dresses, but I mostly just made it up. :XD:
