Some of these share considerable overlap with old-school bosozoku. The longer coats almost look like Tokkofukku (Special Attack Jacket, worn by kamikaze pilots). Bottom center wouldn’t look out of place in Chiba City Spectre.
‘Four Leaf Clover’ Ball Gown
While James’ inspiration for this dress was likely the 1860s silhouette supported by a cage crinoline, its construction is far more complex than its precursor made of concentric steel wires connected by linen tapes. This one was built using two separate understructures of boning and stiff interfacings to give it shape and balance. The fifteen-pound skirt was engineered to rest comfortably on the hips, and, unlike the cage crinoline, to effectuate a graceful glide rather than a back and forth sway. With artistic bravado, James heightened the visual drama by separating the luminosity of ivory satin and the muted reflectivity of ivory faille on the upper and lower sections with a curvaceous black velvet swath, which further defines the serpentine effect of the four-lobed skirt. As he considered himself to be a sculptor, engineer, and architect, James thought this design his greatest achievement.
joshcolon asked you:
First off, I love this blog, it has helped me SO much. On to the question: My nude figure drawing is pretty decent. Always more to learn, but I can do it. I am having problems going to the next step in drawing fully clothed figures and designing armor. I can draw nude figures from my imagination mostly convincing but I cant make the jump. So how do I apply what i’ve learned from figure drawing to doing complete character drawings? How do I learn folds and Armor ect. from imagination?
Yaaaaay folds!! I am so glad my tumblr could be help to anyone. It really makes me blush and smile for days knowing I could help fellow artists on their learning journeys.
