Post MsShino's Hand Drawn Dolls - 01-05-2013, 08:29 PM

OMG I can still hand draw dolls.

This is my doll for TDP Collab that Ness is hosting. I am posting it here to get comments. It's not where my skill was when I had stopped dolling, but it's not bad. And I think it's pretty good considering that it was done on Pixlr. I used to use PSP then I used Photoshop (until I got into digital painting)


Base
So here is me in my Superman inspred fashion. I really like how this turned out. And I am glad I got rid of my first dress. It was way to flouncy/flowy. I think my favorite part is the hair. I Lurve the color!! Oh and I really, REALLY had to stop my self from tool shading the base. I figured since this is a collab the bases should look similar and my tool shadind would have made it look completely different.

Well I would love to know what everyone thinks.

Her hair is GORGEOUS! Maybe a add loose strand or two?

I love her accessories,especially that earring.

I really like how you fit the "S" into this dress, but it feels like it's missing and outline. It's tool shaded really well, far better than I can manage atm

The shoes are the only part I really don't like; their shading just doesn't seem to match up with how you've shaded the rest of the doll. I think the palette is a tad too strong with the shadows. Overall I like how unique the cut and style of this dress is; kudos!


Side note, but do you have any of your other, earlier HD dolls? I'd love to see some of them if you do!

Thanks. I chose not to do any loose strands because I have actually done my hair like that and I don't let there be any lose strands.

On the outline do you mean the red and yellow pieces of the "S" cause I kind of intentionaly blended them.

I see what you mean about the shoes. They were actually giving me trouble when I was shading the, but I was going blind with the yellow so I decided to stop. I could have gone with an easier color, but NO I had to tourture myself with yellow.

Thanks again.

Umm I might have some of my old HD dolls. I'll have to do some checking. Unfortunately the jump drive everything was saved on is MIA, and since Geocities got rid of their free sites it might be a few days before I can find any though.

I was really surprised when I saw your doll, I didnt expect something that good since you havent dolled in a while
I especially love the dress design it is very simple but with the patterns that you have drawn on them it really makes the dress pop, the "S" on the front was a very clever addition also, I would love to see you attempt more challenging designs in the future.
The tool shading is ok and looks great from a distance but when I opened it up in PSE, I noticed some flaws, I used to tool shade and you really have to be careful when using the smudge tool, you have gone a little heavy handed with it on the edges where your highlights are on the red jacket and down the side of the dress, you will see its gone a little transparent, try using a softer brush, also be careful when using the dodge and burn tool, they are really useful when used properly, the hair is a really cute style, all in all a great doll, Welcome back!

Ah, no, that was bad grammar on my part; I mean the dress itself seems to be lacking an outline. The S actually looks the most solid. Well, except for the part over her right side; I can't tell where the yellow ends and her skin begins.

So Bridie requested seeing some of my earlier dolls. Well this is the very last doll that I made before I stopped dolling, and it's actually using more digital painting techniques than not. I had actually drawn in the shoulder and part of the arm, but I didn't like them so I did some creative trimming. Oh and this is a sorta self-portrait.
Base is from Konfusion with a K on Dev. I am not including the link cause I don't want to get in trouble cause some of her art is not....user friendly I guess you could say.

Anyways I'll probably put up more later, they are no where near this awesome though.
