Kamiko from my comic This Mortal Coil over the last five years:
I know from the design she may not look it, but in my mind she's changed a great deal. A lot of it has to do with her personality. Originally, she was this really dour, introverted, withdrawn character, and I had made so many of those types of characters -- I guess it was a reflection of how I felt as a teen, but moving beyond that into my 30s, I didn't want to write that kind of person so I wiped that slate clean and tried again, this time going the diametric opposite. I wanted someone with a bit of attitude, cleverness, snark, and confidence, wrapped in elegance, and that's the character I've molded her into today.
My ability to draw Lolita has also gotten better. I don't even know what that first version of her is in 2010 -- some cross between a pilgrim dress and some version of a gothic lolita outfit. I would say it's hit or miss in 2011 to 2013. The dress she wears in Rabbit and the Moon is a simplified gothic/classic look. I've been doing an art series drawing her in various Lolita brands and styles which you can see on my comic's website.
Here's the latest drawing of Kamiko from my Lolita project (Jan 2016), it's a custom design paying homage to one of Mortal Coil's inspirations. Can you guess what it is?
