♥ Handrawns
Okay, so almost no one looks at my old thread, and its pretty much like a ghost-zone, so I thought of making a new one.

So here is my most recent doll, I did it in about a half-hour?
It's my first ever mermaid, and I'm pretty proud of it. (:
Be free to state your honest opinion, I'm ready to take any bad comments.

Also, this is a doll I posted on my other thread, but no one gave any comments, so I'd like to know what you guys think.
Okay, so I know the hair is terrible. I tried following a tut but that didn't work out very good for me, and I was too lazy to redo it, so theres no need to rub it in my face that the hair is revolting; I already know.
But, although the hair is a mess, I'm quite proud of the rest of the doll. ^_^
Please tell me what you guys think.
(btw, it says gah... next to it.)

It's all kinda pillowy. Also, the black palette in the hair is a bit too blah for hair. It needs to be more on a blue-ish tone. Also, there should be shadows under the hair. That is all. ^^ The top isn't bad at all, either.

The first one is gif eaten. Save it in PNG next time! And more highlights are needed all round.

Thanks guys, for the cc.
I'm hoping on making another one soon, so I'll try to work on my shading. (:

Yes, I've already made a new doll.
Now, I used a tutorial and a premade palette, which made the shading easier for me. (although I find it's still quite pillowy -.-)
I want total honesty on what you think of this doll. Thanks. (:

Brilliant! It's definitely your best one yet. But the skirt could've covered her feet, because her feet look a bit odd there. The folds are a littel uneven but I find them difficult to grasp as well. So don't worry, you're improving (:

It's still a little pillowy, but the shading is vastly improved, as is the hair. ^^

New doll
Okay, this is my newest one (yes, I make my dolls fast, even though the outcome isn't always so great -.-)
Please let me know what you think. ;D

Was that tool-shaded? That is your best.

If you don't know what tool shading is, it's when you use the tools in a program more advanced than MS-paint to make the shading of the doll softer.

Well, I use MS paint for all my dolls, but I didn't do this with the pencil tool, theres no way I would do that pixel by pixel ;P
