Hey everybuggy, the colouring on these is pretty broad, I just wanted to get a sense of colour scheme before tightening up for next week. I'm not sure if I want to actually put colour in digitally or with guache/water c. yet. BTW I discovered that style.com is a hugely helpful resource to any one still searching. They let you create a "lookbook" in order to cull your fav slides. check it out! : )

Hey Emma!

I think you should consider the poses of your models. They look directly related to the referernce (ie: runway). Try having them interact with the objects in their environment. Like having them tinker with that dollhouse or hold up an antique birdcage or something. I think your pallette looks good so far. As for the application of color it's really up to you. I'd experiment with combinations of both. Also thanks for the tip on style.com. I'm sure that will help some folks out.

Yes, thanks for the Style.com tip. I found one of my dresses on there.

for good poses, just flip through W or Vogue. another good one, if you want more relaxed or natural poses, is Nylon. I draw from advertisements a lot, and you can also always have your friends pose for you (though i have found this can really confuse my proportions when i'm dressing my figures). it is easiest to draw the clothes on the figures when you know WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE WITHOUT THE CLOTHES ON that way you know where knees, breasts, and anything else might be that will change the folds in the drapery.

Ok, that's all really helpfull. I'll work on making it less catwalk-y. I actuall HAVE the new W and Vogue, but because homework takes precedence, the vogue is still in plastic wrapping. Thanks for giving me the directive to look at -your -own -poor-neglected- magazines gosh dammit! I never thought the day would come when I'd be looking at W for credit...amazing : )
