You have people that love drawing and designing just the right outfit for their characters and spending quite some time on making specifics fit their personalities.

I am not one of those people.
I tend to draw just.. clothes that are always kind of the generic version of a certain type of clothing. But the truth is, good clothing can make a character stand out so much more and really bring it to life. So I thought about starting this thread. For those who want to get better at specifying a character's style through their clothing, want to learn how to draw believable clothes in general or those who just freaking love drawing outfits.

TIPS:
-Everyone is allowed to submit their own character (in underwear or something, not nude) or dress someone else's.
-Modifications of the original drawing are best limited to for instance redrawing feet if they don't match a certain type of shoes, changing hairstyles or removing a couple lines that would otherwise mess with the clothes.
-If you submit a new character, it's best to give it an open pose, those are easier to dress.
-Use references and accessorise! Those make everything waaayyy more believable and detailed.

So! I don't even know if this is an interesting idea, but I'll trust in the good will of Newgrounds (oh dear) and hope people try. Here's the first one! (you can colour her in any way you like of course, or not at all)

Oh, and as an example I've clothed my own.
As you can see it's not my forte, but anyway.

It's not something a video game character would were, but it looks neat.

This tread could get fun. I don't know much about 'fashion' myself but it'd be fun to see what others come up with.
My try:

Woaw, it's like a totally different character than the girl in the sunny dress. Shows how determining clothes are to a character (or person in general), it looks great!

Ha, those are great. I like the fact that I'm not the only one who imagined her a redhead :p
That said, I made another one for you to clothe wooo
..I feel like I'm making drawings for a colouring book.

But before this becomes a dump for the drawings I make of people without clothes, everyone feel free to contribute your own onderwear-y characters for others to dress up.

I am going to be completely honest with you. I do not like the look of the first girl's legs. They just bother me. That being said, it's a great challenge, and I would like to see more.

Stop spamming people's threads with your "critiques" this is a thread for "fun", how about you join in instead of give out lame opinions on work that wasn't meant to be critiqued in the first place.

Will you for once get the hell off of my case? I was just being honest and giving my opinion. If I wanted to join in, I would have posted a picture. All I was doing was commenting.
