Cocktail Rose 2 by Baron-Engel Cocktail Rose 2 by Baron-Engel
In case you are wondering where Cocktail Rose 1 is I did not do it my wife :iconsmudgedragon: created the first piece. www.furaffinity.net/view/14037… . If you are wondering how Rosemary is staying in that dress I'll just it is a result of spirit gum and imagination. This was an interesting experiment and one of a few combine digital and traditional media piece I have done.

The background was originally created digitally for Smudge's picture in Corel Draw. For my interpretation Cocktail Rose 2 the background was flipped so it mirrored the background in the first picture. Same with Rosemary's pose. I drew a graphite pencil drawing of her and then we scanned it into the computer. The pencil drawing was then combined with the digital background.

Then we printed the B/W figure with the digital color background out on a piece of 11"x 14" Bristol Board and I did my usual colored pencil, marker, technical pen, gouache technique to finish Rosemary.

I one thing I had to be careful with this picture is the fact that the printer we were using did not have waterproof inks for it. For the colored pencil blending that wasn't an issue since the solvent did not react with the ink. However the markers I used to do my underpainting and color blocking of the figure were water-based. If I was not careful I could accidentally end up smearing the ink from the printer. Same was true about using the gouache to define the highlights with white, one had to take their time and have a steady hand. But in the end it came out rather nice.

Spirit gum?  I was thinking double-sided tape.

"Rather nice" is an understatement. (But then again saying Rosemary is "pretty" has the same effect.)

Considering the potential fur has for static electricity, I'd imagine that could be exploited to produce some truly figure-hugging outfits in-setting. Plus the need for special fur treatments and brushes after wearing one.

Did Petina try to out-dress her? Or has Rosemary never actually worn something like this during one of your dreams?

Rosemary could probably wear a burlap sack and make it look good.

Oh no Rosemary has worn outfits like this on several occasions. A couple times in public.

Raquel Welch on "The Muppet Show" seems relevant: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIWpqS… ("I can make a dress out of a food sack...")

(And I can imagine the Mane Six singing a pony version of that: "'Cause I'm a filly -- F-I-L-L-Y!")

Private fashion shows? That require a certain raccoon to be cooled off later?

Okay, so how has Petina reacted to those occasions? Other than by diving into Rosemary's tail?

As well as moving very carefully I would imagine.  Smoking hot while being elegant, very nice!  Your wife designed an awesome dress for Rosemary to borrow!

I'm not even gonna ask how that dress works with that body of hers.

Once again, a fantastic work, I specially like the way her dress is shadow-ed. One thing that bothers me, however, is that there is no separation on the cloth and the skin/fur. I mean, shouldn't the dress be a little separated from her belly?

And by the way, I have finished with the Fimfiction you suggested me. It was like you said, something that could perfectly be on a real episode. Really sweet ^^

It is an impossibly snug dress that is way to form-fitting some parts and yet allows flowing drapery other areas. Like I said this dress is held together as much by imagination as it is by any sewing.
