Heavy duty brocade, taffetta and lining fabric. Most of the construction seams are machine stitched for strength but all edging and trim is done by hand as I like to put a bit of personality so to speak into everything I make.
Once upon a time there was a girl who was looking for a good image at Google to use as a banner. At one time she found an image of an elf lady and was stunned by its perfection. It was not what she was looking for but wow! It was perfect. She couldnt tell at the time how it was done. It was so perfect and clear like a photo and so magical and beautiful as a drawing. So she got curious and clicked on it and discovered an site called DeviantArt. In this site she learned about copyright (no, she didnt use that image as a banner), digital painting and photo manipulation. While she was searching DeviantArt voilà!!! She found the same lady that was portrayed in the image she loved so much but it was different. Then, she found out what a stock picture was.
She returned at her home thinking about everything she had learnt. Then she decided that she wanted to be part of it too, but she only was going to use that stock when she was sure she wont make a fool of herself.
The next day she opened an account at DeviantART and spent the next six month just watching and reading tutorial before she submit her first work. And only after one year that she though she was prepared to submit this piece HERE -> [link]
