Raise Our Voice to the Ceiling

Here's my WIPS from the book cover illustration project we're working on in class! I chose the Scarlet Letter...or rather, the professor chose it from my thumbnail sketches. I'm trying to make it a bit more painterly than I normally do, which is a bit tough...but, I think it'll turn out okay if I put the time in. :D
In the finished illustration there'll be a really elaborate letter 'A' in the background, with vines from the roses gettin' all twisty around it. So far, I've just been too lazy to draw it...but I'll get there, since it's due next Friday. XD

Dress: Modcloth
Sweater: F21
Bracelet: Disney Couture

Love love LOVE this dress! It's probably my favorite one right now....comfortable, pretty, and my friends all say it suits me to a fault. I wore it during the logo critique, and people could immediately see the connection between me and my rococo skeleton design. :D
Too bad all the charms are flipped around; it's a Peter Pan bracelet my little sister gave me for my birthday about a year ago. It's really cute, and the little pink skull has an awesome blue rhinestone eye. X3
