Don’t forget your cardigan …

 

Normally I’d do a larger drawing than this to work out what a character is wearing. But since I knew it had to work on this scale for one panel, I thought I’d better work it out at this size first. Sometimes I know exactly what she’s gonna wear, the first date stuff I knew straight away and this was pretty easy too cos I knew she had to be comfortable for a long haul flight. (She’s also got a cardie in her bag, which is actually a bit too small to go over that large shirt).

In the finished version her shoes will be the white ones from the first date outfit.

    with this kind of attention to detail, it’s bound to be interesting… =)
    also, always great to see someone not drawing fake comicbook clothes- there’s much too much of it around anyways.

    Thanks, I really hope it’ll be interesting… to someone.
    And I think I’m just a frustrated costume designer, so I enjoy those kinda details. I suppose it’s all part of making her real in my head as well, which really helps with the writing. If I know what she likes for breakfast & what she listened to on the way to work, it all helps somehow.
