DotL: Thistle's Dress by Nyxity DotL: Thistle's Dress by Nyxity
As said on my Scraps of the crosshatch for this [nyxity.deviantart.com/art/This… ...

This is my attempt at drawing Thistle from Meg Syverud and Jessica "Yoko" Weaver's Daughter of the Lilies [www.daughterofthelilies.com/] in the sort of clothes Thistle would wear if she wasn't always trying to hide her looks. Though I have no idea what she "really looks like" under her usual garb, I wanted to see her in those clothes. [megsyv.deviantart.com/art/DotL…

As said, this is an attempt. I'm not particularly exceptional with drawing loose, airy clothing - even more so when the pose isn't exactly simple. As said in the WIP:

"The pose is actually of her upper body slightly bent forward as she gazes down at the skirt. The legs has the left standing fairly sturdy while the right is pointed forward a bit."

Anyway, after taking a nice break after finishing the drawing part, (I'm stupid. I wasn't supposed to crosshatch or shade in any way in order not to hurt my wrist, but I fell into old habits anyway...) I went onto scanning and coloring.

I deviated from the color scheme shown in the reference picture Meg Syverud used and did my own thing. Nevertheless, I tried to keep the basic colors in mind. I think the coloring turned out well enough. 'Shame the drawing didn't, but I never notice sketch or lining mistakes until after the work is done... and sometimes not even then. *Shrugs* First attempt, though, dang it!!!


09/10/15 THOUGHTS: Well! Some people who follow the comic have seen this. A few of their comments are quite... well, eye-widening. I guess I should have gone for a monochrome scarf for her face. Holy cow, some of the things I read were surprising... O.o...

Oh, well! It was a decision based on what seemed right to me at the time. *Shakes fist* I shall stand by my feelings! Huzzah!
