Custom Illustration: Bridal!

Over the turkey-holiday, I was commissioned (via wonderful Etsy) to begin this beautiful wedding dress illustration! Like me, she’s been inspired by all the royal wedding hype across the pond :3 Both of these are the designer photos of course, but the bride herself had the most beautiful wedding! From the photos provided, Im guessing they held their event at a wine-country vineyard location- so romantic and wonderful! She had lots of amazing photos to work with, and makes my job so much easier by having chose the perfect dress for herself! She requested the front and back be illustrated, as well as her scalloped-edged cathedral-length veil. The illustration will be completely black and white, leaving the drama and focous on the dress itself! She had a wonderful vision to work from, Im so excited to begin this : )

Thanks again Kristen!
