Costume journal 3 / rendering example research

Okay so I’ve done some research into examples of costume rendering, which is handy cause I have zero experience other than seeing them at production meetings. I tried to look for a random assortment of different sources that might help me when I go to draw. I looked for designs that touched on something in my concept, some for their colours, some for the depiction of texture or material and the last few because the depict characters with a bit of otherworldliness. Mostly I looked through these with the drip in mind, I’m still kind of stuck on how to move forward with the cube.

(THIS IS SOMETHING I WROTE SUNDAY AND I TRIED POSTING IT AGAIN, BUT THE SITE SAYS “AWAITING MODERATION” SO I’M TRYING TO POST IT AGAIN WITHOUT THE LINKS TO SUGGESTIONS.)

I love the slaughter city rendering.

As for going into the cube. What if you played with the idea of instead of having the clothing be geometric, but having a geometric print on the clothes. Or what about 80′s fashion? Woman’s wear, they looked very boxy with their shoulder pads etc.
