Suggestion: Literal Hand-Drawn Dolling
Well, I've recently got into drawing so, I had this idea. What if someone gave the dollmaker/props and we draw the heads and props and all? I think it'd be pretty fun. We could be judged upon how well the resemblence is, shading, ect. So what do you think?

I'll admit, I'm a little confused here with your idea. Can you explain it a bit better?

Moon_Crescent 02-06-2010 02:12 PM

Yeah, I thought so too. Sorry bout that. What I mean is, we could have contests for drawing the dolls in dollmakers. The contest holder would supply the dollmaker and or specific props. The the people who participate can draw the doll with the props and hair and all. Then they would be judged on resemblence of the doll and shading, ect. Kinda like deviant art, but a contest. With credit, of course.

I'm a bit confused too, did you mean actual drawing, as in with pencil and paper? Like paper dolls or something? If so, then I think it's an interesting idea (though I probably couldn't participate as I don't have a scanner).

Nice idea; I'd probably be a big component, due to having l33t haxx drawing sk££lz.

I'm still confused D: How come Aaron understands this and I am still being all slow? I might get the concept, but I need super in-depth explanations.

Cut down explanation: We draw pieces for dolls freehand, asin with a pencil (clothes, hair, etc) then scan them in, cut them clean, and put them in a dollmaker. Is that clearer? xD

Yup, Aaron's got it.

Like this, the dolls are drawn and then people can put them together. Might take a long time to put together, though.

But I still like the idea. Someone get Spirit Queen to come look, she's good at drawing too. =3
