Clothes Part 1
I wanted the important characters in "Good As Lily" to change their clothes with every scene to make them seem more realistic. I dictated all these "costume changes" as well, as you can see from the sketch above. I didn't bother with the minor characters though; because they didn't have much "screen time", I thought it might be confusing if I changed their clothes around. For the sake of clarity, I kept the clothes the same for the alternate Graces throughout too.
Even though I wasn't drawing this particular project, I couldn't let go of the one part of the comics creating process that's genuinely enjoyable. It's fun playing paper dolls with characters. It's fun and challenging trying to stay consistent to a particular person's fashion sense since everyone's is different. I'm such a girl...
