M'kay. \o/ Hi. I'm Sylvur. I've dolled off and on for... two or three years? And I'm about average, as far as dollers go. Hope I can be of some help, and you can give me some extra feedback on anything I'm working on. But we can start by taking a look at any WIPs you have, if you'd like. c:

Oh, that's no problem. Have you tried hosting them on photobucket or anything? Also, I have a hard time finishing things a lot too. Like this, from the WIP thread.

and Glam

Out of all of those, only Miss Italy and a little bit of the robot girl have gotten worked on. :c
And then I'm working on my second MDE entry now too.

Anyway, what program do you use? Paint? Or do you have access to something else?

Oh, Paint is really challenging to work with, but I've made a few dolls in it, so hopefully I can help if you need me to. The main thing I noticed about your work though is how flat the shading is. Do you only use two or so colors to shade?

Well, would you like to try something challenging? Like, using a smaller base like Zipple's Ramona, the same one I used in my avatar, and trying to draw hair on it using more than three shades? I think I used four or five for both the blonde and the pink, although I'd need to double check. c: Else I'd love to see what you're working on, once you get those issues worked out.

Oh my god. I'm so sorry this took so long. I was rushing on my MDE entry, and then life got super crazy. :c Been dealing with some family stuff, and putting this off.

Anyway, was going to mention about the tags, but you got it figured out, so I'll skip that. Saving as jpgs is bad. If you look at it again, you'll notice how fuzzy it gets? png or gif is generally a better file to save as. Gif gets iffy if you have a lot of colors, like I do when I use photoshopping nonsense, but since you use paint, that shouldn't be a problem.

Anyway, it's a really cute start, but I've been red lining a few little things I noticed. First off, the sweetheart neckline isn't even. It should come up just as much on the other side.

Also a little issue is how choppy your lines can be. If you can, try to smooth them out a little bit. My example is a bit better, but I didn't spend too much time on it. I also doodled a little hair on it to see what it'd look like. Curls are hard, so I'm guessing you won't be doing that.

Image

It is a good start, so hopefully my extreme procrastination on this won't deter you from working on it some more! c:

i see wat you mean on the fuzziness and i looked at the red lines you provided and i think with some editing on my part it would look really cool with them :) so thanks
your right i dont think i want to go with curls just yet but the ones you put on there are cute i was thinking more along the lines of an up-do with little wispys surrounding the face
i know wat you mean on the craziness i've been going pretty crazy myself there is just way too much drama in the world

Yes, an updo with curls around the face would look very cute.

Anyway, working on my round two MDE now. \o/ Got a lotta shading to work on still

Oh, I don't think I showed you the first round final either. Here is Miss Belgium in both rounds.

sry it took me so long to reply things have been absolutely insane lately
Miss Belgium looks really cute i like the detail put in. the gray stockings with the gray skirt feels a little bland but otherwise it looks great

Life likes to get like that a lot, so don't worry too much about it, you have time when you have time. So anyway, yeah, I can see what you mean about the stockings, maybe a very light pattern would have looked nice on that. I really liked her either way though, and I placed 35th due to a lot of non entries, so I'm happy enough with that.

Image
is now my latest complete, dunno when the next round is going to be or anything, and
Image
is my newest WIP for fun. I'm still tweaking her face and deciding on what to do for her shirt. So I've been keeping busy. Also working on two dolls for Ladies of Pokemon and a gift for my best bro. Let me know whenever you get started on something, I'd love to see it. c:
