That Perfect Dress by boum That Perfect Dress by boum
Sorry for the huge file... I could've submitted each page separatedly, but I always find it a hassle to go through all the pages on dA, so here goes---all in one!

My storyboard assignment for this week was to draw a comic to see the compositional differences it held compared to storyboarding. It had to be based directly on a conversation we'd had. I chose a little story that happened to ~petite-fashionista (so it's her... sort of).

There's a lot of anatomical mistakes but I like it still. I did it in THREE DAYS. I barely slept at all.

Special thanks to ~jusdecrabe and ~ph33tuz for ideas and moral support. <3

It's been several years since I first saw this comic and it's still one of the my favorites. I love everything about it and it helps me remember there are kind people in the world and small acts of kindness can mean a lot. Beautiful work. :)

It's almost 2 a.m. and I should go asleep, but I'm still here and can't leave this without any comment. This is so adorable. I love this girl - her hair, her style. Marvellous. And the story - unreal, but full of warmth.
Great work :heart:
