MLPFiM - Twilight's gala dress by DDhew MLPFiM - Twilight's gala dress by DDhew
Yeah I just now noticed this has been lying around in my unfinished stuff - file. I guess I intented to upload it when I had designed the dresses for the other ponies as well and put it all in the same picture, but now I decided to start a completely new picture for that purpose.
Now you can at least have a peek what Twilight's dress is going to look like as my humanized version : )

Lovely design and style you did in this piece,including the details as well.:)
So something I've noticed in my extensive browsing for humanized pony artwork is that the gala dresses are incredibly hard to realistically translate into something a human could wear. They were very much designed with ponies in mind, and a lot of the intended effects just get lost in the transition.

Unless you're DDhew, apparently. I mean, holy shit. That absolutely looks like something custom-made for her specifically by a very talented fashion designer, and the original effect is incorporated perfectly. I stand in awe.

OMG. this comment just made me the HAPPIEST. seriously BECAUSE I'VE NEVER GONE TROUGH THIS MUCH PAIN with ANYTHING I've designed for ponies so far. Just go to google and have a long look at those original designs in the show. They look ridiculous on humanized ponies and require a lot of changes and use of artistic freedom. I literally shed tears of frustration when I tried to come up with even a half-decent version of Rainbow Dash's gala dress and I'm still not satisfyed. It's always hard to draw the line with my own decisions and how closely I should follow the original design so it's really nice to hear that people seem to like what I've come up with. (I suppose I'm one of those nolife fangirls spending too much time carefully thinking about ponies in dresses but LOL who cares I enjoy it)

Thank you! This really cheered me up!
It's so pretty! Wow!
