This will probably be the last one I post here before finishing it up and putting it on my comic site. Any last tips? (Yes, there will be a pattern on the top part and I'll add shading to the skin above the bustline and below the bottom of the dress).
Also I bring a message for you from my fiance and personal fashion designer. ;P
Miranda:Hey guys! I'm really glad to hear that you like the dress design! :D I was going for an elegant, yet simple style, something that could be worn to a high school prom-type dance. Any comments or critique are always appreciated!
I'm really exited to help design the clothes in the comic and I might even work on the backgrounds also! I'm better at perspective than Simon is, so we'll see how that goes. ;)
I remember the great Wally Wood saying, "we all steal from one another, it's what we do!" But to me, he means we are influenced by other artists, and influence and outright theft are two different things.

Absolutely. Pretty much every mainstream comic artist has "stolen" something from the likes of Jack Kirby, and almost every indie comic artist has "stolen" something from Robert Crumb.
Hell, you could even argue that Picasso and Braque were both "stealing" each other's ideas when they created their early Cubist works.
The line between influence and theft can be very fine, but most of us can recognise when that line has been crossed!
TheOneBlueGecko:Awesome! I like the change you made to the shading as well, I think the softer gradient look really works better for the soft look of the dress.
Thanks a lot!
Kyo:the hand looks like a paw, not sure if that's just the style but it's a bit weird
I like the COPYRIGHT 2012 DO NOT STEAL notes though
You're right, it does look like a paw. I'll fix that up too.
I know there's people who will stop at nothing to steal artwork, but my goal with the copyright notice is just to make it such a pain to try and steal the artwork that it would be easier for them to just do their own drawing.
I wanted to make a print of it at some point, though. It just makes me uncomfortable that someone would try to say that they drew what I actually did. For certain random drawings and doodles, I wouldn't care as much, but in this particular instance, I want to watermark it.
ugggghhhhh it's getting to the point where it's not a chore to draw these pages, but just hard to.
I've been so slow with everything lately it just feels like I'm dragging my heels with this.
It's also got to a point where I want to develop more plot and characters for it but I've already made it too complicated.
there has been a page sitting on my desk half sketched for a month and I've only just now gotten around to colouring it. I took this break so I could work on comics :c but it seems like the world just doen't want me too
