Played around with the dress silhouette of “the girl that is a woman” none of that scandalous ankle showing.
Feedback: (they circled the 5th one going left to right on the bottom) and mentioned they prefer that one.
Some clothing designs for the masked man. The first one looks like a dress. Remembered birds peaks are pointy, tried out a shape of a peak on the bottom of the coat. Went with the blue theme to not only contrast from the background and other characters, but due to research in symbolism. Through symbolism it states, dark blue symbolizes: knowledge, seriousness, integrity and power. At first designed the feet as if they are chicken feet, the node to the side idea about the masked man bird as well as how the masked man already has a bird face and the girl having eye makeup to somewhat resemble a shape of a bird’s eyes.
The second design is looking more masculine: in conclusion going to go with the second design.
Included a hint of yellow to the dress since from research, dull yellow symbolizes sickness, decay, caution, and jealousy.
At first, drew the dress for the “girl as a woman” white however people keep thinking it was a wedding dress. Decided to add a hint of red to make it look like it was originally white but the amount of times she had been raped, the blood has forever stained her dresses and her purity is forever gone. A colour between the white dress as a girl and her prostitute mother.
added small amounts of blue to hint towards the blue colour scheme of the masked man from her childhood. Wanted to portray the “girl as a woman” having more moral high ground then her mother, so no scandalous ankles or exposed breasts. At the back added the same white feathers but tainted like the rest of her. She’s wearing a corset this time to show she’s an adult. This time drew the gemstone pointing down whereas a child it was pointing up, to show as an adult she is too far gone and all hope is lost for her.
Initially drew her sleeves flaring out then realized then would have to Ncloth, where simulations can tend to fail, or rig the sleeves. Decided to design a more skin-tight sleeve as a plan B if issues come up with the first sleeves.
At first, drew the full legs taking into account it would easier to rig without the dress. First drew her with striped stockings since from research there were many Victorian prostitutes wearing them as well as the sleeves being higher up. The first version looked to top heavy and lacked a Victorian feel with it revealing too much.
Drew the dress section to see what it looked like. Decided to bring the view of the legs down to the knees, a lot more planned compared to the first idea of just the scandalous ankle showing, the whole calf is showing. Gave the mother a chunkier silhouette to show her body has been through childbirth and has aged compared to the “girl as a woman”. Made her breasts more open and used a red tone to show she tries to get the attention of male clients. Another reason I decided to use a dark red, from research to symbolize: danger for the girl, power, fading seduction, rage, anger, and malice.
Height chart for the characters (the blue silhouettes are not part of the design).
At first, wanted the masked man to be double the size of even the mother and “other character” , however realized that would skew the height proportions of the girl compared to the mother and the masked man.
