Unfortunately it is summertime and I have been spending my time outside instead of sketching in the basement. This means you get inundated with filler material and no real paper dolls. But I'm enjoying all the nice weather, so I don't feel too bad!
These sketches are my attempt to create a more modern style for the land of Onerym. I have been working on a timeline of fashion for my imaginary world. I'm trying to build off of the older styles and see how they might change as technology changes. These outfits would be from an era roughly similar to the 1920s-1940s, except in Onerym time.
Susan Pevensie has some beautiful costumes in the newest versions of the Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. This blue gown, worn in Prince Caspian, is one of my favorites. I chose to do a very simplistic rendition of it (all the embroidery on her blue overdress is just too intricate and monotonous for me to draw...)

In other news, the poll I started several weeks ago had some surprising resules (at least to me). I thought the full color dolls would get more votes, but strangely enough it's the dolls with stories that steal 2/3 of the votes! I have to confess this makes me happy because those are my favorite dolls to draw, and I love that you enjoy my silly stories too!
