Being she doesn't wear Human made Bras or underwear or sits around sunbathing in a bathing suit you're just taking a famous and respected character and sexualizing her. What's next? taking Hals moving castle and putting big rims on it and a paint job like it was out of a Fast and Furious movie ? of course followed by naked women covering it.
"tribute" or shallowing a character with cliche Media advertising techniques?
Or maybe we respect one of Japans most respected animators and don't want to see his work turned into another sexulized drawing to attract the eyes of immature teen males, like all the other garbage that is constantly posted on DA? You like older women? That's great, go drawn a bunch of 70 year old ladies in sexy poses ( that would actually be something creative mocking the trend where dudes do nothing but draw naked women all day ).
Point being this is a respected movie with deep subject matter. Not another spoiled media america teen girl crying for attention. It's distasteful. There are plenty of creative ways to render her Naked without giving her tan lines and stockings. Her whole character was the exact opposite of materialism. Instead of making her a Pin up you could have easily done a nature, back to the roots kind of thing. Stockings serve a purpose ( a sexualized one ), Bras and panties again are built in mind/ Fashion wise to sexualized the female figure. There is no putting lipstick on lips and arguing it's something else when it was created for that sole purpose. I think many people ( even women ) forget this.
We are just asking you to respect the source material. Ghiblis movies leave soo much room for creativity to fall back to "pin ups" and Glamour shots.
What you say is true, but while it is well-rendered, this leans pretty far away from her character, placing her in attire (or evidence of it) that's unfaithful to the personality and setting Miyazaki gave her, and since Miyazaki seems quite protective of the nature of his characters, my hunch is that he wouldn't approve of it. That's why I have a qualm with calling this a "tribute to Miyazaki," my opinions on the piece itself aside.
