Based on the Monarch dress by Luly Yang: http://lulyyang.com/haute-couture/

This is my first doll for the base race at Silver System. I really want to push myself and try different things with this, so I decided on this crazy printed tooled dress as my first challenge! Still haven't totally gotten the hang of tooling but its a fun change of pace!

Also: I started by shading the dress in grey then coloring. I found this effect and figured I'd post it too since it shows off the preliminary shading and the color looked neat :)

Oh my god! That dress is so beautiful! Both of them are, really. I can't decide if I like the finished project or the WIP better XD

I need to look into that base race. I'm considering doing it too.

I was admiring the butterfly dress on DA, and I have to say, I still love it. I went and looked at your inspiration dress, and I actually like the way the doll turned out better than I do the inspiration dress, so way to go on that front too. :D

That monarch dress. Wow. I would like to see a step by step on how you dd that. The shading is marvelous. I'm glad you included the dress without the pattern so you can see it better. I do have some cc on the front leg if you don't mind. I think where the leg comes out from under the dress it could use more shadow. Right now it looks like it is equal to or on top of the dress. Also, the shoe should have a longer toe box, especially since it is a pointy toe shoe. It kinda looks like the toes were decapitated and that's just something out of criminal minds lol

"Haven't gotten the hang of tooling." Are you kidding me? I am not the biggest fan of butterflies but I just really, really love this. The colour is beautiful and it all flows just so well. I agree with the above comment - I would love even a vague idea of how you did this. It really is beautiful.
