Krissy's Wedding Gown Drawing

I wish I could say this was my idea but it wasn't. One of our friends asked me to draw her wedding gown as a way of preserving it rather than storing it in a box.  I knew that drawing silk would present certain challenges so I had to change a few things from my usual style. I wanted to draw Krissys gown first to make sure I could even pull it off  (and I just wanted to draw hers first of course:). I wound up with different paper, pencils, and even using powdered graphite for the first time.  The result was something unique and will forever be a reminder of our big day!
