BZG3: Conceptual Art by sadwonderland BZG3: Conceptual Art by sadwonderland
A colored concept sketch from Bizenghast vol. 3. I have a lot of costume designs piled up in sketchbooks that never get used for the series.

EDIT: this is a SKETCH, not a finished piece. Just a sketch from my notebook that I colored in real quick. Not looking for in-depth crit here, just thought it would be fun to post. Thanks!

This was inspired by the weird wallpaper in my old bathroom.

It's gorgeous! It has a gothic feel to it with a nice touch of elegance. I would SO want a dress like that! But the jewelry would be really expensive, what with all the intricate details. I can hardly tell this is a sketch!

For "just a sketch" this is gorgeous!!! I love it, I do agree that it has a true "gothic" feel to it, it seems as lavish as a gown to be worn by Elizabeth Bathory! Hope to see it in Bizenghast Vol. 3!!!!
