Lol here I am starting our thread : P
I have no current wips (or if I do, they're lurking) so feel free to challenge me to a doll challenge~
Also, so you know a bit more about me, I'm 17. My RL name is Gwen, so feel free to call me that X] I'm in college, and I'm also a dude. I don't take offense to like anything, and I love CC. Don't worry about making me angry or hurting my feelings : P
So~ that's my start! <:

Hello Gwen, my name is Kasia c:
I'm female, in high school and super pumped to be a mentor!
I like grammar, rhps and cake. Lots and lots of cake! XD

Before we begin, want to give me a breakdown of things you like to doll, not like to doll, confident in and stuff you're not so sure about?

Haha! I'm pumped to be a trainee : D I feel young again! (see? I'm already being random). And it's nice to meet you.
Okay~
I like to doll hair, and I'm comfortable with dolling t-shirts. I love dolling pants. I have no idea why, I do though : P Although I'm comfortable with trying anything, especially if I have reference.
I absolutely am not good at dolling shirts or dresses. I also can't do fancy hairstyles, the only curly one I ever managed to pull off was This one and that one was just luck pretty much. I also am terrible at portraits. I have no idea why. And editing, especially in the face is totally a nightmare waiting to happen. X]] haha!
I'm pretty confident with the stuff I like to do, and the stuff I'm not quite sure about is probably the things I don't like. Only because I avoid it as much as possible.
I hope that helps some? : D

LOL oh Kat, she's quite the character. (I mean that in a good way. She's funny lol) And no worries, I'm socially awkward, so just about anything I say is weird : P

I love face editing ;u; lol and jeans I looove jeans TTuTT

Alright (: I'm pretty decent at portraits (despite the low number of ports I've actually ever finished >>) So why don't we start there? I CHALLENGE THEE, SHOULD THEE CHOOSETH TO ACCEPT, TO A PORTRAIT. With some kind of strange hair style ;) Y/N?

I will C/C and this will be like a magical adventure~

I usually end up freaking people out lol. And Kat is now our lovely ghost here. She has taken it upon herself to haunt our thread >o>

Whatever you would feel more comfortable on, depending on whether you want an angled face or a head on port, style, etc XD

My pen would probably explode so it's okay XD

Of course!

I like the shape of the hawk, although it could use some more lines on the body, just a reference of which way the hair is flowing. I also like the hairline c:

This is going to sound totally lame, but can you show me what you mean? [[: I'm not sure if you meant body of the hair or her actually body? 8D

LOL XD the body of her hair. Feel free to ask me anything because a. I can be really confusing sometimes and am often really vague and b. I COMMAND THEE TO :3 because I lurve answering Q's XD

As I now have my computer, I'm just gonna go ahead and CC the doll thus far k? k.

Image

The hair comes from an origin (hairline) so what I was trying to explain, rather poorly, is that some definition of where the hair strands were going to be would provide me with explanation? IDK XD I guess I'm just biased to my way of dolling. So I sketched in some visual explanation as well, as my verbal is not quite up to par XD You can ignore how everything is curly and flippy, it just happens when I pixel sketch, I swear XD

I'm also not sure what kind of bang you are trying to do, so my sketch is just a quick explanation of if it was bangs, there would be definition between the hair hanging out, the hawk and the bangs. If it is hair pulled back from the hairline, I can assist with that too c: AND if I am too harsh, please tell me c:

Edit; GOD DAMN
Forum Stretch >> Sorry! I can link it if it bothers you XD

Oooh! You're not harsh at all : D Like I said, no worries about ever offending me or getting me upset. I'm totally easy going.
In fact that answered my question totally, thank you. And I love your CC picture it's so colorful :DD
And okay, prepare to get loads of questions later on then : P I am such a question person it's not even funny X]

Will update with another WIP soon!

This was going to be a lot of text and pictures XD

1. The shirt needs to pull back a little towards the neck, because it looks pretty tight. otherwise, it looks like the back would be billowing off. And then theres usually a fold somewhere in there. And the shoulder in front needs to be defined more, otherwise the two sleeves look completely different, one looks like a square shape and the other looks like a strap.

On that note, the neckline would be more square and kind of scrunched in the middle, because of the way his arm is drawn closer to his body.

On number three, I simply did some scribbly shading of how it might look. I also left my own palette on there, which you can see I did some test shading (w/o the logo for now XD) back in number two.

Image

Black is a tricky colour. It needs a lot of contrast, but not enough to make it look extremely shiney XD

I will CC the hair later, things are kind of tight at home at the moment :| is that alright? Sorry this was a bit rushed XD heading into exam week XD (yay :|)

Hey girly~
Sorry for the double post and no edit. I just got back from Russia and I've had major jet lag. Not to mention being back on a somewhat normal schedule is SO weird for me X] I should be posting something after exams. Just thought my lovely mentor deserved some explanation of where I've gone at least : D
I hope things have gotten better at home! As I said, if you ever need an ear feel free to PM me or email me or something. If you want my email, feel free to ask. I have no qualms about giving it to you <:

woohoo double posting WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Image

Okay, so the hair you had shaded was fairly pillowshaded and fairly flat. It needs much more contrast, and specific strands coming from a point (circled generally in red). Rather than having v shaped high lights, you should be aiming for what I have above. And the shorter layers on the short hair need to be less V shaped as well, even if they are straight. I made mine slightly rounded because I make everything curly :/ sorry If they were straight, they would be much thinner at the top as well.

Also, I scribbled in some possible shadows for the hawk, with some possible highlights as well (because I looked at a ton of references c: ) The green arrow points to a slightly awkward part that I kind of fixed XD

Q's? Sorry if this is confusing XD

Ah that looks gorgeous! : D I really love the fauxhawk, and lol I know what you're talking about on the shaved parts. I had no idea what I was doing even with reference : P
(lol I'm such a terrible trainee, I ended up sleeping the whole week away and being lame like that X] and lol yeah I was in Russia for an exchange program and I was there for a couple months, so coming back is really tripping me out XD)
I like the way you shade hair by the way X] lol
And I don't actually have questions \o/ Although if I come up with any (lol I accidentally put wth) I'll let you know : D
*goes to edit more*
