Golly, what a day by shoomlah Golly, what a day by shoomlah
Yup, this was an April Fool's joke, just to answer all the inquiries. :)

A lot of people have been asking about Maid Marian, so I figured I might as well give her a shot- a bit tougher when you’re looking at clothing on anthropomorphic animals, of course, but there are still a couple of details that point to the 15th century- the cut of the dress, the ears disguised as a horned hennin headdress, the bag sleeves, etc.  I still tried to maintain the relatively simple silhouette of Marian’s dress, just with added period details- making it more of a houppelande by design, and resolving the v-shaped neckline to show the kirtle underneath.

Also really wanted to hide some foxglove motifs in the lining of the gown- it’s subtle, but I think it really ties the whole design together.

Reminds me of my dog when my daughter decides it's time to play dressup.

I love how you kept the colors of the original gown, it truly emphasizes Made Marian's complexion. You managed to enhance the shape of her figure without taking away any of the original's majesty. That being said, this is the best piece of the entire series,  you've hit the mark with this one!

I really like the piece, but... What are those white specks? It's driving me nuts!

My first impression was that she was coughing up pearls.

I really like it. I like how you made the outfit torn,  as if she had been adventuring for a while. Besides, I could never draw digitally, at least, like that. Thank you for providing such quality content!

Oh, this is great! Accurate indeed. Still, I'm surprised at the lack of carnage, considering that someone, somehow, would've had to have gotten her into that dress, with no small measure of effort and blood loss. I haven't even looked at the rest of these yet, but this one's definitely my favorite. :) Wonderful job, and wonderful concept for a series.
