mcqueen tribute by vmbui mcqueen tribute by vmbui
Not sure if this is really worth posting. I might scrap it later (am kinda fond of it, though).

The recent & tragic passing of Alexander McQueen was really saddening. He was my all-time favourite designer & an absolute visionary.

This is just a little tribute piece. The dress is based on the one from his Fall 2009 Collection. A rough yet time consuming piece, as the elaborate bird pattern took a while. Done quite loosely though, as I'm trying to learn how to maximise detail while minimising effort.

The process animation can be found on my blog. Click download for the wallpaper pack, if you'd like.

He was also my favorite, and still is :( No one will be able to do a concept and theme and set a MOOD like he did! He got me into fashion, and then he died soon after v_v Made me really sad. 
One of my favorite thing about him is that his pieces seemed more like sculptures or costumes rather than trying to be somewhat wearable. His work truly does belong in a museum (most of it, at least)

This is absolutely amazing, i'm finding it real difficult to distinguish the dress from being real. The texture and wrinkles seem so very real its beautiful. I don't think i've seen many drawn-on materials look THAT great to the point the lighting exposes the detail in creases and the pattern REALLY follows the body. I think it's the first time in ages i'm inspired by a fashion drawing. Avoiding making it a long speech, well done!!! Excellent!!

If u can, PLEASE do more like this!!!
