silk panels


Takeuchi Seihō (1864–1942, Japan)


Takeuchi Seihō was the pseudonym of a Japanese painter, active from the Meiji through the early Shōwa period. One of the founders of Nihonga (a school of painting aiming to counter-balance what it saw as excessive Western influence in Japanese art), his works spanned half a century and he was regarded as master of the prewar Kyoto circle of painters.


Silk #02

Maybe I am getting the hang of this superhero stuff. Sure, my powers are a bit off, and I got into a fight in a sewer, but I’m totally— It’s right behind me, isn’t it?

anonymous asked:

can you do a tutorial on how you do those comic edits where its the comic but with a plain background? how do you do that?

yes i can because i actually love doing tutorials for some reason lmao okay let’s do this

this is going to be slighly long because i’m pretty thorough with tutorials so it might seem complicated but like five edits later you’ll get used to it and do it in five minutes.

i’m going to use this panel from silk #01 in this because it’s cute

Sinbad - Valefor Djinn Equip (Sinbad no Bouken) So I was going to wait until I did a proper shoot to post about this costume, but I can’t wait any longer! These photos were taken Saturday of Dragoncon this year

Valefor. The most detailed costume I’ve made with the least amount of fabrication lol I made EVERYTHING. the seven tails and the harness, the front armor, the ears, the 3 red eyes (the hand ones have LEDs in them that turn on and off) the various wrist, ankle, and choker accessories, skirt armor (all made from worbla) and the jewelry. The skirt is a really pretty white crepe back satin, the sashes and front panels are silk, the modesty top is a nude cotton knit. I used faux bunny fur for the tails and ears (and fosshape to help the ears stay up)

I love this costume. This was my first time using worbla and I loved it! Originally Baal was going to be my first Djinn Equip but I decided since this would be my first time using worbla maybe full body armor was not the way to go. Now I’m super stoked and planning to start Baal during the holidays *_*

Lots of skirt progress today! This is the skirt part of the kirtle. It is made mostly of polyester taffeta with a band of silk at the hem and front. Once the dress is made and worn with it you will only see the front panel, so there is no reason to waste fabric (and money!) by making it entirely from silk. 

The front panel isn’t attached yet and the pleats aren’t measured, just roughly pinned. 

This was a bit of a pain to work on because every seam needs to be a french seam, and they have to be done one at a time. Every little snip in this fabric instantly frays horribly so it was a slow assembly process.
