I LAUGHED. XD

I have a wip. But I hate it. I'm participating in a mermaid contest where you gotta get inspired by a real fish. Or sea creature, whatever. I chose the cardinal tetra because its colors are aaawesome.

Fish reference: OMG AWESOME
Base: You know who.

I've never done a mermaid before, so wow, it's effing hard. I have no idea how to shade the tail (I know it sucks right now, but I'm too lazy to try and fix it and I'd rather have you tell me how to). I just hope you can. Bah, I know you can. Shut up, you can.

Also any idea what I should do with the hair? I mean with the color. I wanna use both the fish colors on the tail, but I have no idea for the hair.........

ahhhh you don't know how much I've missed this <3 sorry if any of it comes off as mean or bitchy, I'm just trying to help =] As I said, I'm not a mermaid expert so this is just guessing, mainly.

As for the hair, I think you should make it light blue and SWOOSHY 8D

Thanks! XD I actually knew what was wrong with most of it, I just didn't know how to correct it. SO YAY. I'm gonna work on it today. I also started another doll for another contest and as soon as I've worked on it more I'll post it here :D

This is inspired by St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow :D it's for a contest at the Casino.
Don't tell me it needs aa, I know. XD I'm just waiting until I receive your comments and change what needs to be changed before I add the aa.
I'm thinking maybe more contrast..?

Sorry it took me so long >.> Some more contrast on the shading would be nice, yes, if you're working with patterns that have sharply contrasting colours it's a good idea to make the shading less subtle because otherwise it tends to just disappear. Some darker shadows on the skin would be good, too, because right now the skin looks really bland compared to the rest of the doll. It'd be nice if you added some colour to the lips, too. I redlined the shoes because the feet were looking a bit lumpy, but I believe that's the base's fault and not yours, this base has really, really weird feet.

(and lemme just say I LOVE St Basil's Cathedral, so I love this doll. So colourful 8D)

WHOA A DOLL WHAT'S HAPPENING
Base: http://wish04.deviantart.com

Obviously for the Ladies of Pokemon pageant. Yes I swore to God I'd never enter a pageant again but I felt the call for some obscure reason. XD
Don't mention anti-aliasing, it's my last step :P I just wanted general comments on it, anything you'd change. Is the outfit too plain? Should I add something?

I don't really have much cc for this one... She's very cute, and definitely not too plain. Some brighter highlights on the hair would be nice though. And some darker shadows on the skin, especially under the shorts.

I think it's minitut time.

Base by Silindor

So I started with the clothes and I'm satisfied with them, I also edited the face a little, and then came what I was fearing the most:
THE EFFING HAIR.

I hate portraits and I don't know why I started this, but anyway... I hate the hair, I really despise it, it looks like one giant blob. The thing is, it's my OC Sinni-Kay, she's got really straight (like ohmygoshsovertical) hair. It's not brown, it's dark blue-purple-ish, but I started with brown to shade because it's easier.
So it's a blob, and I have no idea how to properly shade it for a reason I don't understand. I've been working on this damn portrait for 2 weeks now, on and off, and whenever I let it rest for a day or two and come back, I just can't fix it. HALP.
