This community is dead, and that makes me sad. ;_;( I'm posting anyway, damnit!Collapse )
www.freewebs.com.empire-fashionHas some Gothic & Lolita designs
Just found out about this group, so I'm posting some of my sketches as an intro. :) Cross posted to EGL.Only a few of them have been colored since I had specific colors in mind when I was designing them. Of course, all of the colors were completely washed out in the scanning, so I've put blobs of color from photoshop next to them for comparison. My favorite by far is the olive and pink jsk (#4), which I am currently working on a pattern for as I type (er, sort've)! And, if some of these look a wee bit familiar, it's because I was seeing how close I could get to actual items found on various loli sites. Virtual cupcakes if you can guess what comes from where! :P I'd love any feedback, though I reserve the right to ignore any/all of it. ;) I'd love any input on adding lace, however, as I haven't worked with it much and am not sure about the best placement for it just yet.
A post over on egl had me wondering if anyone is still around here? I miss the themed design contests this community used to host (you know... the animal theme, holiday theme, etc) and was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing more of them? I'd be happy to run one in November or so, but I suppose it's not worth the bother if there's nobody active here any more. And it would be nice to see if anyone else is interested in running contests as well (because I like to enter! XD).Alternately, would anyone be interested in a series of design theme challenges that aren't contests with winners and prizes but are just to get the creative juices going and give everyone a challenge?I know there are still lots of members in this community, why don't we bring the place back to life a bit? ; )
Deadline in Two DaysOpen Call for Designers - Schoolgirls and Mobilesuits, Minneapolis, MN
We're coming up on the deadline, so if you live in Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa or Wisconsin, this is for you :)Open Call for Designers - Schoolgirls and Mobilesuits, Minneapolis, MNAlso, it looks like if you register before August 31 you get a $10 discount on entrance into SGMS. Do it if you can, it's worth the $10 savings. The thing is, because it's a conferance/workshop at a huge art college, it's a bit expensive. They fly in academics from around the world as well as amazing artists to teach you manga art. We had Udonone year! This year is Tania Del Rio (of Sabrina the Teenage Witch). She's very nice. The artist from our convention went to college with her, so they go way back. Also, Jeremy Rossfrom Tokyopop usually does a portfolio review and because the group is usually under $100 people, you can spend the whole weekend with the guests. Crispin Freeman is coming again this year and he's just about the biggest sweetheart ever. The lady who used to run the fashion show with me is a professor of fashion at University of Indiana. I always call her the Doctor of Fashion since she actually has a doctorate. Heh :) Anyway, there are usually good fashion talks as well as the fashion show on Friday. *plug* Plus, you can prereg for Kakkoi|con :) *plug*Well, I suppose that's enough. Email me if you are interested or have any questions about the show at all. I think I have enough models in the pool, so if you are a designer or hair and makeup artist, definately contact me. Thanks!x-posted so everyone can have an opportunity to apply :)
