1770's Dresses by Seitou 1770's Dresses by Seitou
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

Fashion Timeline: 1760-1810

Year: ca 1770-1779
Style: Georgian
Dresses: Caraco à la française & robe retroussée dans les poches
Description: 1) Caraco with loose-flowing pleats at the back, in the style of the robe à la française; 2) Style in which the overskirt is pulled out from the side pockets and the back is draped like a robe à la française (from "Galerie des Modes").


More dresses in flat colors! :dance: Here are the 1770s characters.

Although hair reached enormous heights during this period, I decided not draw 10 ft head dresses because they're just a horrible stereotype; not every woman wore her hair that high >O> And yay for drawing powdered hair? My only regret is that their hairstyles remind me of those hideous poodle-wigs they wore in Amadeus -__-;; Other than that, I love the way these two turned out.

I also tried to make my lines thicker because, as some people rightly pointed out on my last deviation, the patterns made it hard to tell where all the folds in the clothing are. So, I hope this is a little better.

PS: And I'm sory if I seem a little dead on DA! I know I haven't been responding to comments and stuff; I doubt I'll have any time to really talk to people since I still have to finish 6 more dresses... and I'm really, really pressed for time .___.;; I have to spend every spare moment of my time working on this project or I'll never finish...

PPS: FYI, the second dress is based on a costume from the Kyoto Costume Institute :D

Very pretty.
Though I've sort of thought to myself whenever I saw pictures of dresses like these: "How did those women manage to move around in such heavy layers of fabric & tight corsets"?

Anyway,great art.

Great outfits! They look like they would be fun to wear. Intersting how some people powdered their hair in this time. I like their elaborate hair-accessories, they stand out.

question, how do you do the patterns on the dress, do you color it with marker, or color in photoshop? and if photoshop how do you stay in the lines and what not?

I do all my coloring in photoshop. Patterns are done on seperate layers and I draw them freehand from scratch (so no textured/overlayed patterns). And I don't really worry about being neat when I'm coloring because it's just as easy to erase if I go out of the lines :)

The pink outline(?) goes well with it C:
I think that I like the second one more x3
( Do you use pen tool for the lineart btw ? >> Just wondering... )

I use one of the hard-edged brushes in photoshop. Is that what you mean? Because the only other option is the pencil tool.

Ah, I didn't mean this one but it's okay, you answered me :3
Just those lines appears to me so straightly drawn, it's wonderful if you do it by your hand withou help of any other tools o.o

OMG! These are wonderful! I don't think I'll ever learn how to make the fold right ... ever ...
But then again, parctice can only help ...

I do think that that burple outline/stroke of the figures it's a bit distracting. I think another color would have been a better choice. Probably a light green-to blue ... or pale cyan.

p.s. I can't remember if I ever asked before, but do you make your lineart in Photoshop or in OpenCanvas?

*headdesk* I actually had the outline as light-green when I first drew it >_< For some reason I changed it to purple...

And I use Photoshop. For everything. From start to finish. :nod:

Lol I remember that movie! XD I :heart: Mozart! :D Anywho, great job on the dresses. Love the second dress ^^! Oh and speaking of 10ft hair, in the movie Marie Annionette did you happen to see the size of her hair in one scene? It had to be at least 11ft, no lie! >.<

You now, I prefer the flat colors. It kind of makes everything easier to see. As do the think lines, because folds and patterns make up SO MUCH of you're work.

I am seriously in love with the folds on the girl on the right. Like around her neck and the cute ruffled thing on her hips. (I need to learn technical names >_> ) You are so good with folds ;O;

Very, very beautiful. The striped dress reminded me of one that appeared in the Kyoto Costume Institute book, is that one? It's my favorito of the two.

Just out of curiosity, have you seen The Duchess?

I haven't seen The Duchess yet. I'll probably wait until the DVD comes out or it goes on TV. I'm afraid I'm not a big movie-goer (the last film I went to see was Corpse Bride >__>;; )
