MDI Nepal & Greece

Post by JadeWaters » Sun Feb 09, 2014 10:47 am

So I joined the MDI (first time too!) and so after repeated attempts to get the right base I finally sat down and did a sketch up of the clothing design... tell me what you think.

It's looking really cute! Although, I, personally, usually sketch my folds into my initial sketches, so I don't lose track and have to go back while I'm too far ahead.

Um, the portrait and fullbody are looking quite similar in design right now, though (the clothing will be different colours, though?). Maybe try giving one of them a different hairstyle?

Also, I just noticed the eyes on the portrait are angled slightly differently.

I'm loving the pattern idea you have going on! So cool! I agree with Sheesha- a different hairstyle on one would be very nice! Also, maybe consider doing the arms on the portrait without a pattern? It just might get a little too busy in that area once it is colored and shaded. Just an idea! :) It looks good so far though!

Thanks, for the suggestions and I'll be working on them all. Sadly I opened the PSD file for this doll and to my horror discovered that all my hard work was not saved though I had been pressing the Ctrl+S keys through out the sketching process. So I basically was back to square one along with everyone's suggestions. So here is the 'new' version of the Nepal sketch on a black background, the doll bases lowered so that the blue sketch lines can be seen better. Tell me what you think so far.

They look good to me! I like all the patterns. Although, I wouldn't work on a black background. It's always best to work on the pageant's background so you know what the colors will look like when your entry is up on the pageant's site. =)

Oh those are just the sketch lines and I did that so people on here could see them and give feed back before I do the 'inking' of the lines.

this was the finished entry...
I did my best to edit the eye but I'll be shocked if I get past round 1 but at least I get the honor of saying I did try to enter the MDI one year.
