Of Dumb Dumbs And Pussycats - Page 19 by mandygirl78 Of Dumb Dumbs And Pussycats - Page 19 by mandygirl78
Page 19 of the Melody/Alexandra femslash/yuri Josie and the Pussycats fan-comic "Of Dumb Dumbs and Pussycats. "Written by :iconsyxxy: and :iconmandygirl78:. Artwork by :iconp-joart:

The end is near folks! This is the second to last page for the comic (not to count the front cover, which I'll post after the final page).

Here, we used a reference to the inside area in the Disneyland Hotel from a Japanese magazine done back in 1971. The setup was SO early-70s, that we decided to use it. As you can see, we changed quite a few things for Alexandra, because I wanted to emulate more of the comic than the cartoon. There was always some sort of conflict of interest between me and :iconsyxxy:. She wanted to be more cartoon-based, and I wanted to be more comic-based, and the continuous clothes changing was one of the compromises. In the comic, Alexandra wore more different hairstyles and clothing than in the cartoon. As for Melody, I wanted to have her wear something of "fan service" but still tasteful and still in tune with the comic's times. When I saw an early-70s fashion catalog of a model who wore the same thing (but she didn't have the same 'body' that Melody had), I knew it was perfect for her. 

Also, some of you Josie and the Pussycat fans may recognize the clothing that Alexandra and Alan is wearing is from the Sept. 1969 cover, where Alexandra discovers her magical powers. goodcomics.comicbookresources.… .  I thought their clothes was so perfect for the comic, I decided to use them for the comic :D

I'm planning to post a journal on how the room was created, it was very interesting what me and :iconp-jart: went through...


The final page will be up on Friday, February 14, 2014. That's right, on Valentine's Day!  Heart Heart Heart

Just discovering your stuff, and it's AMAZING! I always thought Alexandra was hot! I love how you really captured the voices of the characters from the cartoons. I suppose I am choosing this  page ( one of the least naughty!)  to comment on, is because I have always had kind of a weird fetish for girls drinking coffee! ( hey, don't judge! If people can dig it girls smoking, why not drinking coffee!?) so this post-coital coffee Klatch is just the best!
 I'd love to see you do something with Shelly from Jabberjaw and Bubbles hooking up! because I feel like if you can capture Alexandra this well, Shelly is a shoo-in for your treatment! ( showing her drink a mug of coffee would be an added bonus too!)

To be really honest with you, I was never really big with Jabberjaw.

At this point I was so tired of Alexandra's ponytail (which I never really liked, for some reason) that I personally insisted to have the pigtails in the last outfit! :D :P

Which is a good thing, because I wanted a change from her usual hairstyle as well. I wasn't tired of it, but I didn't want to see the same thing over and over again.

Oh it so sweet let hope that their cover will not blow too soon. Also love the part when they hold hand under the table and quickly let go when the rest come down for breakfast

The outfit choices are really fantastic.  xd  I think the compromise is great.  It makes the comic easily accessible to the people who have only seen the cartoon but then explores some of the other looks from the comics too and new outfits they would be likely to wear.  xd  I really like how it came out.

Yeah, my fear was that the compromises would backfire on us, making it horrible. The person who made our compromises work was :iconp-joart:, somehow with her wizardry, she was able to make adjustments that worked.

It works pretty seamlessly I think.  I mean even in the cartoon, you have to imagine they sometimes wore different clothes.  xd  But in those days, I guess they stuck to one character design for the animators.  If you ever watched Totally Spies, I think that was one of the first shows where the actually had the girls wear different outfits for every single episode.  xd  But I think it's a good mix, you get the iconography of Alexandra's classic cartoon look before mixing in other stuff, and she always looks adorable with different hair styles.  XD

Animators back then could get away with such laziness, but that won't fly anymore, especially since the Japanese upped the ante quite a bit. Some of the designs p-jo did was never done before in either the comic or the cartoon. Plus, it helps with the fact that computers have taken more of the role for cell drawing.

It's really sad that when I saw Alexandra's clothing I was like: "Oh! That's from 'Josie' 43!" Melody's outfit looks very familiar too, did she wear that in the comics? (Maybe it was something similar...)

No, Melody's outfit is totally original. I got it from an early-70s fashion catalog.

Alan looks on suspiciously.  Josie is still tired.  Wonder what she was doing last night. Wink/Razz

Ah. I like this part of the story.  The Angry Alexandria is happy.  She's extra pretty today too.

Very nice. ;-)
