Jolly Holiday by dalemc1988
Jolly Holiday
A colour pencil portrait of Julie Andrews as the lovely Mary Poppins, from her adventures in Bert's chalk drawing :)

Done with my Derwent colour pencils, with a few white gel pen accents.
There are some work-in-progress shots over on my Instagram - instagram.com/dale__mccarthy

Willie Scott at Club Obi-Wan by dalemc1988
Willie Scott at Club Obi-Wan
My colour pencil portrait of the lovely Kate Capshaw as nightclub songstress Willie Scott in Steven Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". I love this film, and this character in particular - mostly criticized for her portrayal as a whiny diva in the film, but I thought Kate made her totally real and actually rather ballsy - especially by the end of the film.

a sense of scale by dalemc1988
a sense of scale
This is a barbie-sized miniatures scale replica of the sequinned evening gown Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) wears in the opening sequence of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".

Entirely stitched by hand. I drafted a miniature paper pattern, cut and stitched the base out of fine red silk, then sourced 3mm-wide sequins and got to work, stitching them on in those curved lines, trying to copy the actual dress as closely as possible.
The dress is fully functional, with tiny gold beads that act as scale buttons.
The gold zig-zag trim on the sleeves, collar and bodice are all fine chain-stitched golden threads. A total labour of love :D (Big Grin)

The dress is fully functional, with tiny gold beads that act as scale buttons. The gloves don't have fingers though, the scale was just a bit too small for me to try and replicate!

Hey Dale, just visited your facebook profile, I must say I have no words for how great your designing skills are. Your wedding gowns are like wow. They are detailed, intricate and any girl would be happy to wear one of your creations. I have no idea how you do it but whatever you do just keep doing it.
