Ok, this thing has taken on a mind of it's own. Last night I had an idea to change the doll even more and suddenly it's going in a completely opposite direction than what I had originally intended. Next time I post for CC it's going to be a very different looking doll most likely. Has that happened to anyone else? :?

I feel almost ashamed that I finished my dolls so quickly. Either everyone is putting WAAAAAAAAAAY more time into this than I did, or they have really tight schedules and have to divide the hours spent on the dolls out on severeal days. :(

I'm only working on mine over the weekends. Plus I get distracted by nintendo :)

But yeah, it does take me a while. I can spend ages working on the one region and I'll sometimes come back later to it. But I can't spend long stints on a doll either. I get bored of it after an hour or two, I need to go away and come back a little later.

One thing that I find helpful for art/essays/whatever is to "finish" your piece, let it sit for a few days and then look at it with a fresh mind. That way you can pick up things that you missed before or come up with some bright ideas to add to it.
So if you feel bad about the amount of time you have worked on it (and there is nothing wrong with being quick - people function in different ways) then there is nothing wrong with looking back on them later and staring at them. Maybe you will think of ways to improve it, maybe it will just reaffirm that the doll is great the way it is.

I'm a bit nervous now. We're to get our dolls any day now, and suddenly I'm worried that I won't get ANY. It's happened before. I've participated in collab events where the other doller never returned their part of the work. Twice!
I hope I get one. It doesn't matter what it looks like - though I'm very excited to see what the other doller has made from my dolls - but I hope I'm not left without. That would be embarrassing. :shock:

PJ, if you don't get one, I will personally make you one, cause I know how shitty it feels when collabs go bad. XD

Ooooh! Am I the only one gnawing my nails to the bone in eagerness to see the outcome?

What's been done to my doll? And will my recipient like what I did to her dolls? :D

i could have done all three but i chose the one with PURPLE!!! if it had been orange that would have been even better but that is way off topic.
i tried to keep the colours as close to the original as possible not sure why but i did. i changed up the style of clothes and because i'm in a steampunk kick, guess what. its Steampunk. i added on these huge metal and wooden wings. i hope they come across like that.
anyway, i think we should do something like this every few months. it really makes you think outside the box. i had to really push myself to look for new things and ideas. this was an awesome project and who ever thought of it deserves a really big cookie!

I am completely in agreement with you. :D


I'm excited about this project, but also nervous because I have a whole pile of work days between now and the deadline. Also, my dolling mojo has been on the decline for years, so I hope I can pull off a decent doll that won't disappoint the recipient. :oops:

I think it's very exciting to do collabs and have major events and stuff. It makes dolling even more fun!

I haven't gotten mine, either. But I know when they did the Secret Santa there was a giant post with all of the dolls in it ... I think we are waiting for that ... ?

Polly Juice, let's wait a little, I didn't post mine in the Doll section... I've sent mine to Mokia and thought that she would give everyone a PM with the redoll. Maybe lots of people hasn't finished yet! ^^

The deadline was almost one week ago. *grumble* Why do people participate if they can't finish in time?

I know how you feel and I understand, but sometimes life gets in your way and you can't do everything you wanted to. But yeah I admit I agree with you, and I'd be so desappointed not to have my redoll but I guess I wouldn't be upset/mad at the fellow doller. Still this is very nice to do something you said you would do! Ha life! ^^ C'est la vie as we say over here! :)

I don't think it's that there are other people still working on theirs, I think it's that Mokia had to finish whichever ones didn't get completed for whatever reason and she probably wants to wait and send them all out at once, you know. That way no one feels left out :)

Just be patient, I know it's hard but what else can you do at this point?
