Okey :] I have two WIPS right now.
Image
This is Naomi. She's my other Naruto OC :) This is her post-timeskip outfit. I wanted something... girly, but also ninjaish. I'm pretty done with it, but I'm not 100% sure I like it. The pants bother me, and I can't decide if I want some sort of pattern or design on her shirt.

This is Delilah Mabbitt from a circus forum RP. She's an aspiring popcorn vender :D She's the seventeen year old daughter of a farmer. After years of boredom, she finally decided to run away - and had no idea where she was going.
By pure luck did she happen apon the LeVille Circus so early in the season... the ironic part is, she's never popped a kernal of corn in her life.
I'm not too good at facial edits, and I've never done overalls (which is what she'll be in). so 8D
And I can't decide if I like the stripes or not. Hmmm :|

lol XD

Im Rayne (rain), but most of my friends call me kiba-chan irl.
ive been dolling for almost three years, doing a doll a day (seiously o.0 im addicted to mspaint XD)
i write fanfiction and a proud yaoi-fangirl (but not a braindead drooling one).
i write, read, wish i could play the piano, and im a PO2 in my schools NJROTC program.

hmm.. my fav fandoms are naruto, bleach, Hana Kimi, fruba, anything thing Clamp.
i listen to pretty much any type of music except country, rockabilly, and the beetles. my favs are 3OH!3, MCR, 3DG, Linkin park, Nickelback, Paramore, and Cobra Starship.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BOOTCAMP BEGINS!
O0O0O0O0O0O0O0O0O0O0O
Before we start, i need to know what YOU think is your biggest weakness, and what is your strengh.
once i know what you want to improve on, then i can make a challange to suit you ^_^


as for your wips, they are really cute!

1. very cute! i like the overall simple design, but maybe its too simple? the purple shirt looks fabulous so maybe just a colored trim or a solid color emblem on the front.
the pants are a great color, but you have ALOT of folds that dont seem to follow a direction of movement(yes i know she isnt moving, i just cant think of a better term). what kind of fabric are they made out of? the heavier the fabric and the tighter they are, can influence the amount of folds.
here is a pic of shorts/capris:
Image

2. you seem to have no issue with shading XD really wonderful at it.
face edits can get the best of everyone once in a while, but since you make the face less stylized, it will look alright even if a pixel or two is out of place. the face you did on Delilah, but i seems like you gave her guy lips @_@ try adding some upper lip and thickening the bottom just a hair.
to be honest, since she will be wearing overalls, i would opt for the solid yellow shirt. having the greenstripes would make the doll seem crowded.
if your still not sure then do two versions, one with the solid yellow, and the second with the greenstripes.

My biggest weaknesses are lightsourcing and folds, obviously :P And I have a problem with contrast. A lot of the people here keep barraging me with "CONTRAST!" ;_; haha.
I also have problems with shoes. Heels, to be exact. I'm OK with those skater-shoes and Chucks, but heels trip me up!

But I love making pallets. They're a ton of fun, I have a whole file full of them if you're interested :D

...PO2 in my schools NJROTC program.


What's that? o_o it sounds interesting.

OH! And I forgot to tell you, I write fanfiction too! X3 Mainly with my fanpairings, Rock Lee x Naomi Hyuuga and Kankurou Sabaku x Akumi Uzumaki (she's not a Mary-Sue. I promise x_x; ) But I also write a lot of MinaKushi and NaruHina! <3

Updated :3

Image

Made her lips a little bigger like you said :P and started the overalls. I wanted to see what you thought before i went shading-happy.

Image

And I like her shirt now! :D I wanted to see how shorts would look, and I think I'm liking them better than the capri's. What do you think?

What's that? o_o it sounds interesting.


lol, NJROTC stands for "navy juniour reserve officer training corps" (one hellva mouthfull) and im a Petty officer second class.

dont sweat the contrast thing. depending on moniter settings, one doll with normal contrast can look awesome on one but look totally fu*ked up on anouther. going from my comp, your contrasts look perfect ^_^

ugh...shoes...one of every dollers weakness. i normally dont doll heels unless the doll specificly asks for it, and i cant worm around them.
one thing to have with you is a shoe. (like right at your desk if possible) i keep a basic assortment of shoes near me when i doll so i can just pick one up and turn it around to study it.




i dont normally make ocs for fandoms (mainly cus i find they get in the way of the story line) but i sometime stick one in here and there if i need someone to die.

as for overalls, i love em! one good thing about them is the fact you can make em as baggy as you want and they'll still look cute on a girl XD will they be regular demin or a diff fabric?

That purple shirt with teh design is FABULOUS! i want one like that now TT_TT
i like the shorts or the capris, but your right, the shorts work better for it :D

Wow o__o that's one heck of a title! Does that mean you can boss around kids that are like, third class petty officers or something? xD;

My wips!

Base by mariiii.de

The shoe challange >3 My idea is to have a white shirt with the Converse star in a circle or logo, in either black or gray and (red?) jean shorts. I'm hoping to add the Converse star as a hair barrette or earring, and maybe some kind of shoe-brand related tattoo :]

Started on shading. Not quite done yet :P

WIP 1
looks great so far!
i wanna ask before i touch anything:
is redlining ok with you? (cus everyone knows i suck at explaining things without them) :3


WIP 2
lovin'it! the color looks great so far and if you care to give if a shot, i think making the overalls seem distressed slightly would help portray the 'used-to-be-farmer' idea ^_^

what kind of shoes will she be wearing?

also, the pocket you have lined so far is kinda small ;P how is her hand (or other object) supposed to fit in it?! when it comes to overalls or other jumpsuit like clothes, giant pockets are a must ^_^

Okay! Thanks :] I fixed the hair, but didn't really... like the one teeny piece any more, so I worked around it :B I hope it still looks OK.

Image

I also finished shading the one pants leg on the overalls. I'm trying to decide if I should be lazy and flip or do the other seperately xD;

Image

I can't decide on her eye color! 8D I know she'll be blonde, but I never really thought of her eye color. Hmmm...

WIP 1
the lineart for the hair looks great!

WIP 2
perfect palette for the overalls! they look wonderfull ^_^ try adding one last highlight (a very small one) on the folds on the side which the light source will be.

also for eye color, i would think brown or green depending on what shade of blond (the lighter the hair, normally the lighter the eyecolor)

any other wips that you'd like to get some critique on?

WIP 1:
Image

would something like this work better? since im not sure what fabric it is, i didnt go fold-tastic XD
all i did was lessen how far the right breast curved, and add a curve for the left boob (cus no matter how baggy the shirt, in that posistion you can definitly tell shes' 'female'

WIP 2:
the overalls look fantastic!, the shading is wonderful and the small tears look perfect ^__^

Hallo! double post, sorry D:

I forgot to ask, is Hanako ok? :O I hope it wasn't something serious.

Naow, to the wips!

Image Updated to > Image

I worked on her so much ;__; Originally, it was going to be calf-high chucks with the pant leg tucked in, with rips in the pants displaying striped socks. The socks wheren't too obvious and looked weird in the little rips, so I changed the pants to capri's, the calf-high chucks to regular sneakers and continued the sock :D
Her arm looks bare o_o

And I like it a lot so far! I hope it looks ok to you, kiba-sensei! <3

Image

And all i did to Farmy here is do the other pants leg. I can't decide hair quite yet >__>
