ToX Milla Maxwell by Dice9633 ToX Milla Maxwell by Dice9633
Sheesh, way to pose, Milla.

Reason for this? Her hair -- obviously. Could there be more??

I had to "fatten" her up, her Inomata artwork makes her out to be really, really thin and it doesn't jive with my style.
I don't get her arm things and I hated drawing them. Actually I don't get much of her outfit, but it was overall fun (except the arms).

I'm only sort of proud of this piece... it was a lot of fun to do, and helped me "standardize" some drawing techniques; but I hate drawing and sketching all on my tablet, I love the look/feel of pencil on paper.
This turned into a rush job too; I realized I was really stalling on it. I think it's time I drew original stuff.

NB, Mutsumi Inomata and Tales of

I agree. Her waist is as wide as her head in the official artwork... I'm giving Milla an extra few inches in my drawing of her, too. :X

Really nice job here!

Beautiful. Love how well you drew the lovely Miss Maxwell. Love her hair, the expression and her pose.

Love it! This style really works for Milla. Her original character design never made much sense to me, but your darker colour scheme and the fact that you gave her room for intestines do make her design a lot better.

Wow! You probably put more thought and kind words into your comment than my train of thought to create the picture was worth! I just like to make a nice image; but thanks -- your commentary really means a lot to me. :hug:

Nice work!
I dunno if I'll be picking up Tales of Xillia later this year. There's too many games coming out!

I really like how you "fattened" her up. Milla actually looks normal this way. :XD:

Her massive amount of hair can only normalize her so much. But thanks a ton!

I actually felt kinda bad for her before. I realize it's Inomata's style, but I want to take half of her characters to a burger/steak/icecream dinner

I always love your iterations of Tales characters, and this one is no exception! I'm glad you "thickened" her up a bit too, because her concept art and in-game model DO look waaay too skinny.

And yeah, her outfit is a bit silly for sure. It kind of reminded me a little bit of Rutee's outfit from ToD though, which I thought was kind of neat.

Anyway, nice job all around!

Thanks, I do my best, and means a lot to get a compliment from a fellow long-time Tales enthusiast. :)

I never noticed the Ruttee connection! That is kinda cool. I thought Rutee was a bit more cohesive in design choice. I've learned to come around and love Milla's outfit, but it just seems to be a bit of everything. Her Xill2 outfit[s] look much, much better.

Well, I didn't mean the design was exactly like Rutee, but Milla's top, and all the...I dunno, "strap" things reminded me a little bit of Rutee's original design. (Since she kinda has a strap thing going down from her "collar" thing, or whatever."

But yeah, I think Rutee's outfit still makes more sense overall. XD And yeah, Milla's Xillia 2 outfits do look better.

Wahhhh so pretty! :love: The hair looks amazing, and I love your colouring style so much ;u; <333
I've drawn those things on her arms too, and yes for sure, they're really annoying to draw ;n; (I don't understand a lot of the ribbons on her outfit actually haha oh well) But KDJSHKJgdg you drew all the ribbons and things on her arms so perfectlyyy <333 Yeah I love this a lot :'D

I'm very excited for Xillia! Only a few more months! ;u;

That was exactly my problem! I had to reference a bunch of sources to see all around it. Tassels, ribbons, stripes, shoulder pads... AUUGH.
I love the hell out of your colouring style, it's certainly way more unique.
