Default My secret garden-Lizzy's hand drawns - 03-19-2008, 03:35 PM

I made my first hand drawn doll and another version. I don't really like the hair, but the hair clip on the second one is nice, I think.
And the feather is all mine! (Sparkles aren't, of course).
base: Cicciola by Pinkland

Did you make those sparkles form the wand yourself? I like them.

Your shading is scribbly and unrefined. Scribbly is okay, but you have to know how to get away wioth it... which few people do. Try finding and truly READING tuts on hair; some people look at the pictures, but don't read.

That's a big no! Read it; often times, the tut maker will explain how to proerly do the technique, and mny go as far as to explain why they shade it so. Try Watermelon Bubblegum, for she gives a nice explaination, i believe.

It is not shading; please don't post if all you are going to do is display your appalling ignorance. Yes, hair is difficult to shade at first, but a good tut will show you the way; I would agree with checking out Watermelon Bubblegum's tuts cuz they helped me a lot when I was first starting out.

At first, I found hair a beast to shade, but now... I kinda enjoy it! ^_^ I'm still pretty new to dolling. I think yeah, you do need to improve your linearts and shading, but it's good for a first attempt.

Thank you everybody. I actually read a linked Watermelon Bubblegum tutorial, but it was the full tutorial so it didn't explain much about straight hair.

I took the sparkles from a dollmaker but I could make it myself (I sometimes do when I edit dresses), I just had no energy after the hard work on the doll.
