★ ...online roleplayer?

Alright, I'm supposed to be using my judgement here, and it seems like I am, perhaps, supposed to both make a thread to introduce myself and post a shortened 'audition' in the pinned thread? Maybe? It seems pretty casual around these parts. Ayep.

So, I am new. I've never joined up before, merely stared upon the shining halls of GLAM! in intimidation for years. ; D
I am not, however, new to the world of dolling. My best friend got me into the practice ten years ago when we met and I've been slowly working my way up from there.
I'm twenty-one now, if anyone's curious. I am a member of deviantart, under the same moniker, and gaiaonline as this username as well as 'on a white horse', the handle listed for credit on most of my work.
Both usernames are Disney jokes, technically. Heh. The latter is a reference to the idea of 'prince charming on a white horse' and 'the swordid truth' is a play on the line from Sleeping Beauty when Prince Phillip kills Maleficent- "Sword of truth, fly swift and sure- that evil die and good endure."
Oh, did I mention that I am an incredible nerd? Yeah. That's a me. .3 .;

BUT, long story short : Long time lurker, first time member. Would love some c/c and the chance to play in some contests and events. And, you know, the bases. Who doesn't want the right to use the bases?

Welcome to GLAM! :D I'm María, but I mostly go by Parker, Zapatones or Zappy. The latter has become my nickname since Zapatones may be too foreign to English speakers.

I like your style a lot. You seem to have a good grasp on colour and shapes. That first doll with the mushroom is adorable. I love the simple shading in the Pokemon doll too, and the gradient in the last doll's hair. I'm looking forward to seeing more work from you and I do hope you enjoy the community.

If you have any questions or doubts, feel free to ask ;)

Your dolls are great! I especially love the mushroom one, and the guy's hair on the couple doll. Awesome texture! Can't wait to see more of your work.

You are all too kind and welcoming and complimentary- I'm melting.
At this rate I'm gonna end up filling the room with floaty hearts. < 333

It's really quite awesome to see how open GLAM! actually is. I've always been way too timid to give it a try~
But, I've finished some cool stuff in the past couple weeks, and I really wanted to see what people think of it. o w o
So, off I go to take the plunge into the finished dolls section...

A fellow newcomer! :D
I must admit that before I joined I had lurked for awhile too! :D

I love the texture on the mushroom on the first doll, and the simplistic and bright colors/shading on the pokemon one is perf *u*

Welcome to Glam! I'm always impressed with really small dolls. So many details with so few pixels. >_< IE, your dolls look great.
