I don't think you actually listened to Miranda's CC.
You're shading along the base. Simply re-colouring the base does not look good. Check out some tutorials like Miranda said.
And do NOT forget base credit next time. You need an actual link to the site where you got the base from. Read the rules of this forum, please: http://www.thedollpalace.com/forum/h...-everyone.html
Do not save them in that kind of file, either. I save all mine in .gif, because that's what they turn into after I add transparency. .png is probably safer, though.
CC on the clothing shape: Do not use straight lines so often. It looks choppy if it the doll isn't shaded right. And do not draw along the base. Clothes have folds, and usually aren't painted onto your body.
