Nightmare by ItchyStitch Nightmare by ItchyStitch
I spent soo long doing this...approximately 32 hours. I'm going to redo the background some time later this summer cause I'm not happy with it at all.
Lots of references used X_X ie) magazine clipping of the model and random google photos for the chair

The detail and the amazingly realistic dress make Nightmare by ~ItchyStitch a wonderful piece that was just screaming to be shared with all of you. ( Featured by amolerouth )

Thank you, Chasva TuT

And yes! It was from a magazine clipping I've collected for a collage watercolour illustration, but I never got around to using it as it never fitted with my prepared theme.
