Magic School Bus Prom by Nebulan Magic School Bus Prom by Nebulan

Remember this pic? [link]
This was a project I stared AGES ago and only recently finished. I used references for each other dresses from a prom dress book, but I didn't keep any of them in their original form. and I didn't have any photo reference for the boys... so their outfits look much more cartoony. Mostly I just modified the girls outfits to be more modest... cuz I aint drawin minors with plunging necklines and then wondering if there's any old men around checking them out *shudders*. Wanda's ... yeaaah... my sis and I thought it would be fun if she wasn't wearing a skirt, but I don't think it turned out so hot. For Tim/Phoebe's pose, you might be able to guess what I used for reference there... I wanted to capture at least *some* teenage awkwardness in the picture. Frizz and Liz look the same age as when the kids were in 3rd grade ;)

So, after discussing with my sister, we decided to it needed a background. hopefully it doesn't look too weird.

Wanda looks fine; in fact, all the outfits suit the characters wearing them. On another note, while I prefer Arnold/Phoebe and Tim/Wanda, you handle your choices in couples well and make them cute. Besides you do some of the best Carlos/DA I've seen and they're my favorite ship.

Sometimes I've always wished they did a reunion show for this series. Or some kind of reunion. It would be a weird trip.

my sister is working a cool story actually, but it's set in 2003, when they are juniors in high school. [link]

Wow. It's so...elegant. I don't ship Arnold/Wanda, but I still like this drawing. The girls have cute shoes! I think Phoebe kind of looks like a princess. And those are really pretty colors on Ms. Frizzle.

thanks, I got all the dresses from a magazine only I spliced a couple and made little edits. but the shoes I tried to duplicate from the magazine :) maybe I should try drawing the girl's outfits again except rethinking Wanda's X( I wouldn't redo Frizzle's tho, her skirt too forEVA!

I know everyone likes the idea of the Friz never aging, but honestly, I can't see her seeming to stay the same. I picture her in her later years with silver streaks in her hair to complement the copper tones. She's one of those people that would age very gracefully.

I recently saw a picture of an elderly woman taken a few weeks before she died. She was gorgeous. And if I recall correctly, she was in her late 70s to early 80s. That's how I imagine an older Ms. Frizzle.

Even though I sometimes like the idea of the Friz being ageless (for one reason or another), I agree with your sentiments about her aging gracefully. I use my maternal grandmother as a mental model though.

Wow, this turned out beautiful. You planning on going into art or fashion design? :D
I love the fact that the Friz has let her hair down for the occasion. She looks quite a bit like Murph. And the dress suits both her personality and her--period.
I also love Phoebe and Keesha's dresses.

Colored pencils obey you a lot better. There's far less stress involved in traditional art than there is in dealing with Qwerty and his army of silicon rebels.
