Yeah, shoes are a toughy. I have major issues with shoes.
Your tool shading is really starting to improve!
I think a good pixel tutorial for you to reevaluate is Watermelon Bubblegum. When I first started pixeling, I looked at her tutorials and was like "lul wut?" But as you learn more and develop a better understanding of shadows and highlights, they start to make much more sense.
Okay. I'm going to try and word this so as not to pi.s.s alot of people off in misunderstanding. What helped for me is to look at a tut, like the jeans perhaps, and when you go to try using it, follow it very specifically so it's very smilar. Now I'm not saying to
A) Post this creation
B) Do this every time you make a doll.
The point is not to steal her pants, but to understand shading better, that way you can go ahead and try your own style.
"I wasnt sure how long I could sustain the effort without breaking in two. It was as though the only thing holding my body together was my one burning desire to be better then Kakarott. Sometimes I thought I was losing my mind. Why wasnt I able to obtain what Kakarott had obtained?! It didnt make any sense. It was infuriating and it was my fury that kept me alive."
