Decided to have another go at human Minuette, since I wasn't satisfied with my last attempts. I think I finally got it right.
Experimented with some different techniques. This time, I put the digital trace of my pencil sketch as a separate layer, which actually made my job a lot easier. Especially when it came to the pattern on her sweater, which would have been absolute hell, if I just kept mindlessly coloring in one layer. I can't believe it took me this long to figure this out. Also first time drawing feet. Thankfully I had the sense to give her socks to make my job easier.
Her outfit is based on a photoshoot Emma Watson did with Los Angeles Times in 2004 (hence the title). It's classy, but still casual and comfortable. It also looks really cute. Perfect outfit for Minuette. Also experimented with a darker skin colour, though I didn't fully commit to the "black Minuette" idea, because I still need to make the colour scheme fit. Was also trying to make her slightly chubby, but the pose and thick sweater kind of hides it. Oh well.
