I really love this outfit. And now I am trying to figure out how to make it. Is it heavy bustled in the back like Victorian style or is that just a trick of her pose?

It's not a bustle, but the fabric is gathered. Kinda like this : [link]

Man, to see this dress in reality would be amazing....

I'm favoriting this because Emma's dress is awesome. Plus, it'll remind me to start reading the comic once I get home!

I adore the clothing, the pose, EVERYTHING about this lineart, but I can't help but notice that the coloring and background are not making this lineart shine the best it can be. It's balanced and the colorchoice is nice, but it's not exceptional like the lineart. However, I can't really put my finger on it or give really specific constructive tips... which annoys me. Do you still have a version of this piece with only lineart? Mind if I give it a try?

I think my problem is that I really mastered the art of inking. I concentrated on it for YEARS. But coloring? Pfft. I started using color like two years ago. And photoshop? This year. I never really put importance on color until now, and it turned into a great weakness of mine.

So yeah, please give it a try! Let me learn your awesome skills! :D I demand tutorialship!

I don't have a high resolution version close by :( Will the low-resolution do? Otherwise I can send it later...

This is gorgeous! I love the swooping lines of her skirt- what a creative shape! Also like that pop of red against the green- lovely! :heart:

A happy new year to you as well and a wonderful image you drew to celebrate it. I feel so repetitive but seriously your line work just amazes me to no end. This is quite an elegant piece. Very beautiful.
