A Sandy Dress (ROTG) by Vilva A Sandy Dress (ROTG) by Vilva
Tumblr'd here: [link] It glows! XD Please reblog instead of posting! ^.^

I've decided to continue off my previous piece and make a ROTG dress series! :la: So here's a dress, this time inspired by Sandy! I actually scrapped several designs for this one because most of them made my little gender-bent sandy look either too slim or tall and I thought it took too much away from the character. In the end, I just went with as many ruffles and layers as possible! The drifting sashes were the most fun to draw and color, although I do realize that it probably wouldn't work in real life unless it was being modeled in a room with a billion fans blowing from all directions.. XD oh well :shrug:

This is random, but did anybody else think of the BFG (by Roald Dahl) when Sandy was introduced? I actually hadn't heard of the sandman legend before watching rise of the guardians, maybe that's why.. :shrug:
Also, I could probably write a very lengthy essay on how glorious the dream sand was animated in the movie but I'll spare you. XD

I've looked at your whole ROTG series now, and I absolutly love them all, but I have one complaint. Why no Bunnymund?

Oh my goodness! These are all so fabulous! I love your work here, it looks great. I think out off all the ROTG concepts you've done; this one is my favorite! It's lovely, I really like how majestic and flowy it looks. All the other ones are amazing as well. You certainly have talent. Again, excellent job. Keep up the good work! :D

Oddly enough the Sandman was one of the legends I didn't believe in growing up. I blame it on the sandbox we kept outside and my mother always chidding us to keep the sand out of our eyes. Her not wanting sand in our eyes then saying the sandman put sand in our eyes was a conflict that confused my poor young brain.

This dress really is lovely in its folds and flowing scarves. Very beautiful, simple, yet complex. Love~♥
