Base

Here is step 2 and 3 combined since i tend to brainstorm while sketching to find what feels right.

The theme of your doll will dictate what kind of hair it will have. Notice how in my two ideas, it is the same base, but the hair shape totally changes the 'feel' of it.

Take a neon color that is easy to see against the base, and rought sketch the hair texture and shape. Is it long? Short? Funky or simple?

dont worrie about it looking like hair at this point. also, egnore the body at this point as well. The hair is on the head right? so make it fit the head.

@Nancy: it looks good for a sketch! for future reference, hair does not 'stick' to the head like that. Even if its in a ponytail or pigtails, it still has volume.

here is a reference that might help:

This style of pixel hair is incredibly similar to anime hair so try looking at different images to get a feel for it.


If any of you need redlining or think it will help, let me know!!

@Nancy: That looks better. I will redline it when i get home(cus netbooks suck) I prefer the bangs you had on her before, but other then that its alot better!!

@aeri: she looks wonderful! Ima go out on a limb and guess you have no issues with hair, you just wanna try a new style?

@Liza: her hair looks great so far!



We will begin the clean up soon! I suggest to keep a 'copy' of the untouched base saved near by. I will explain why later :3

Nope, I've got no issues and I'm ready to go with the next step. I'd go with a different style, but I have a character planned. :3

LESSON TWO

Ok, so y'all have made it to round two of my minstrations :3 HAZZAH! i hope i havent confused y'all too much?

@nancy: i understand your still working on your sketch, keep going but ima explain the next step.

Clean Up
Some people can skip ahead to this step right off the bat, but i cant and most dollers cant either so i had y'all sketch (plus its good practice :D )

This is the point which you switch from the pencil tool and snag that "S" or Curve tool. If you are not too familiar with MSP then check out {url=http://www.bunnystick.com/index2.html]Bunnnystick's tutorial[/url] where she explains the tools and tricks of the program.
You stuff >tutorials >Basics:tools and shortcuts.

Now we are going to take our line-tool and just trace right over that picture. (make sure you saved the original base separate from this incase you mess up. NEVER trace an original, always a copy of an original. It's a pain to refind things and start over.)

There are several ways to avoid messing up. Keep in mind that you only have three undos, so you can do one of a few things. One is keep the original next to the traced piece on a large canvas. That way if you mess up an area you can use the to select that part and paste over the part. You can also just use the color replacement method and replace the line with a color matching the sketch. Impurities in the sketch are not important as they get erased in the long run. And a trick I use when a line isn't going the way I want: before I set the line down and I know I don't like it, I right-click. The line goes away without me having to undo it, which essentially allows for 4 undos if you think about it.

Don't worry if the line isn't perfect, that can always be fixed later after clean up. But to avoid a more "boxy" look to your tracing, make shorter strokes more frequently, then the curves will be a lot smoother. Sometimes it might be time consuming, but it's worth it. Afterall, if you care about your work, it shows.

~Bunnystick >Extracting tut 1.

^couldnt have explained it better if i tried :P

I will post several examples later!!

Palettes

Yay! your ready to start coloring! but, shading the hair is what seperates this style from others.

To pick a palette you need to think of personality, outfit she will be in, character, ect. (or just close your eyes and point at a color on a color wheel :D)

Shiny hair that i do is odd mainly because the more colors you have, the better and if the contrast is off just a tiny bit in the wrong area, it can ruin the hair.
One good thing? its REALLY easy to play with the palette WHILE your dolling!

so, go ahead and pick 6 to 12 colors (yes twelve. lol). start with a dark blackish color which will be your "line color" and lighten systematicly till you've got an almost white color. the color the hair will appear to be will be in the middle.
post them in a line (or however you put your palettes) so i can check em out. if you need help creating one, let me know and ill see what i can do :3

@Nancy: try adding three more less saturated and lighter colors that will be your highlights.
