Lolita Mimi - 'Gloam Valley' by lillilotus Lolita Mimi - 'Gloam Valley' by lillilotus
Here's an artist I've admired for quite a while now; :iconiggie39: has a really gorgeous style, and I'm envious of the way she can draw lolitas so flawlessly~ Her work is super detailed and I love looking at it *bought 7 badges of her DC girlies and Pretty Cures*. With her style in mind, I decided I wanted to improve the way I draw Lolitas - and there is definitely an improvement! The skirt I drew before finding a ref. image....looked crap. And the background I drew.....looked even worse. Then I actually used my brain and took note of how she draws hers, and it looks infinitely better now ^.^ So thank you to ~iggie39 for letting me stalk her page for a while :XD:

It's been way too long since I drew any Super Paper Mario characters, which is strange considering it's one of my favourite games of all time. Eager to rid myself of this blasphemy, this design was born! :D Mimi is really nice, and I can definitely see her getting into Lolita, but also being waaay OTT with it somehow :S (hopefully she's classier than my expectations) She'd probably be a Decora Lolita, but I wasn't being specific with genre - I just wanted ot make a pretty outfit based off Gloam Valley (prettiest level in the game! :heart: ) Urge to do Nastasia and Dimentio themed Lolita outfits now :meow:

What I learnt from this piece; Lolitas TERRIFY me! Obviously not all of them (I've met plenty who are nice to be around), but I have my own reason for being terrified of their collective community - and while drawing this, it made me realise that I am genuinely scared of them being bitchy about my work (if anyone is interested in reading my long rant and full justification for my fear, I'll send you the document)

:'D Thank you so much; I'm really glad you like it! ^.^ Hehe, thanks; I feel like the skirt is a little plain compared to the prints that you draw (detail~~ :meow: ) - but I am kinda proud of her hair, and the tie-dye pink, green and yellow! :XD: Thanks for the fave too! :heart:
