in drawing •  last year 

Like, a looooong time ago, like two months ago, I had this convo with the talented and the amazing @la-fumettista on traditional garbs cuz we both seem to like period clothings XD

@la-fumettista told me that her roots, being Italy, she mentioned about Sardegna and I was like ... !! I must google this~ So I did and the traditional dresses of this area is super beautiful * ___ * Just absolutely gorgeous~ Too bad it isn't worn outside of festivals and celebratory events anymore :(

BUT! It definitely fired up my muses and I started this drawing two months ago :) I kept at it here and there every other day, and now I finally have finished it :D

Here it is, a village woman, inspired by Sardegna traditional dresses~

I used pencil, my new inkpen and my old inkpen (the uni pen) for this piccar :>

Step by Step

Step 1: Eyes (@ryivhnn, see i DO use proper size pencils, sometimes XD)

Step 2: Face and veil

Step 3: Hair, shoulder, and sorry the camera blurred here :3

Step 4: Body

Step 5: Skirt, apron, details and background

Step 6: Shaded the dress with pencil (Had to change to my small pencil, since the proper size one was HB and the small one is 2B)

Step 7: Time for new inkpen to shine !

........and done :D


If there's a particular traditional garb that you like that you wanna share with me, let me know in the comments :D I love folksy dresses and I always welcome inspiration :D :D :D

Nice drawing. Really productive @veryspider! Keep on creating :D



Thanks, Sander :D Drawing is almost like a thing I must do these days. I feel strange if I'm not drawing~ haha~

I didn't know about this Sardegna culture before, but their traditional cloth is really beautiful! It reminds me of what a traditional cloth supposed to look like (in my mind) and your drawing captured it very well, spider! :D
I also like the little background you give her, it adds more personality to the drawing.

How about the men's traditional clothing? I wanna see ulzzang ᗒωᗕ.
