Fade to foam (water dress design!) by Vilva Fade to foam (water dress design!) by Vilva
Tumblr'd here!: [link]

An ocean inspired dress! I've been playing with this idea ever since I came up with a similar design for the Ariel dress a couple months ago (which I scrapped at the time). This one is loosely based off the original Little Mermaid story by Hans Christian Andersen. Really though, I just wanted to draw a dress of water :D

Wonderful work. I find the original story very sad but beautiful nonetheless. I'm glad you decided to draw this. Not many people do. Thank you very much.
