Hereville 2 Work-In-Progress: Dress Design

On January 25, 2012 · 3 Comments

Mirka wears the same dress for the first 45 pages of the graphic novel (although — spoiler alert! — by page 45 the dress will be torn and filthy). Unlike last time, where I just drew a dress on the first page and then had to repeat it, this time I’m trying to figure out what the dress looks like before I start drawing.

  1. For some reason, I can’t see Mirka wearing the last dress in her community unless she were trying to make a statement. (Then again, this is Mirka…)

      I agree. It seems too ornate, compared to what I saw in the first Mirka book. The hairstyle also strikes me as more modern, though, so maybe that’s what you’re going for.

    Yeah, I agree. That last dress doesn’t work for Mirka (at least not in this book).

    The changes in the hair are more a matter of trying to make it look just a bit sloppier, otherwise it’s the same hairstyle.
