Emil93 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010
WOW! How long did it take you to make this?
angelicetherreality Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010  Professional General Artist
hard question,
it starts with passing the idea sketches first-like a few weeks to finally get approval to make the project, then it takes hundred tryouts and measuring
then when ur ready with all shapes and working cutouts
-It took me 3 days just to make paper strings out of paper-that was the challenge-ALL PAPER NO WIRES NO STRINGS NO TAPE
and just cutting it clean and cleaning out and putting it all in together took a few days,
and then waiting for all the parts glued together to dry out
in the end putting all up together took fast, measuring and preparing takes forever
but the effect is always something different then what I planned from the start,
since it's for school I had to make lots of changes to please the professors XP
it's still just 1 dress, there was lots off other stuff to go with it
so yeah it took long
Emil93 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010
Wow. You put a lot of work into your projects.
angelicetherreality Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Professional General Artist

I actually like the straight black-and-white of this one the most. But that's just my biased opinion. I think everything looks better in B&W :)
