So, now I’m blocking in shapes on those figures. I’ll keep drawing and correcting as I go.
Now that I’ve got most of my figures in where I want them, I’ll shift my attention to the costuming. I’ve decided to roll the aprons on most of these women, to give them a sort of “pocket.” In most of my research on historical clothing, many immigrant women wore their aprons this way, not only to hold items needed during the work day, but also to free up the bulky material around their legs.
More coming soon!
