I do think she would have a bit of a reputation for revealing that much of her shoulders, but it could be said that is in keeping with the gypsy look. The guy looks great too but the period seems a bit modern. I can't quite put my finger on it. It may just be that the bow tie reminds me of a tuxedo which makes me think of James Bond.
Thanks for the crits. The comments about the shoulders is really funny (even if true) to me given that current comics can pretty much be a lingerie catalog.
I have to admit I'm using a mish mash of clothes. Especially for the girl. That particular dress cut is from a late Victorian/Edwardian time, but the details have been patched in from several sources. They seemed to have outfits for different times of day and occasions so I'm probably putting her in something that only gets worn in a ball. I'll try some different suits and jackets for the guy sometime. I agree something else could be tried.
It's definitely a great resource to live in a city with historic buildings. I always bring my camera with, when ever I am walking around SF. Some times people start to get a little suspicious though after I take 20+ pics of their house LOL. If you are interested perhaps we could swap pictures.
I'll need some pictures first. I'm working on roughing in some head models right now, but once I get to street scenery I'll definitely take some pictures around town. I would be easy to set up a site where we could share pictures and other files if people are interested.
I saw a magazine at the mall called Victorian Homes which seemed to have interesting pics in it. Also I've used costumes.org for some references.
