We's Gonna Make A Doll. CLOSED.

Postby chewbroccoli » Fri May 28, 2010 8:16 pm

HELLO THERE. I AM YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD VEGETABLE AND WE WILL BE MAKING A DOLL.

- this is a pixel workshop. toolers are welcome as well though if they would like to learn. =]
- i use paint.net to make my dolls. you can use whatever program you have.
- this workshop could take a while depending on the progress of each person so i do ask for some patience. i want everyone to be on the same steps and not get ahead of each other.
- i won't ask for applications. but i will say that YOU CANNOT BE AFRAID OF EDITS. push past what you know and BROADEN YOUR MIND. if you say that you're afraid of doing something i will abuse the caps lock in your direction.
- PM me or post here if you would like to participate.

- i'm not fussy about bases. we'll try to stay to a medium size. i don't mind using Moe as a base, she's easy to work with and has a shitload of poses.
- i'd prefer that you be online at least a few days a week.
- we are going to be dolling a person of either gender wearing a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. that is the basic concept and after that you could add whatever you'd like to personalize your doll.

- i'm new to the whole tutorial/workshop scene so ask me to clarify if you have questions. i admit that i can be a spaz a lot of the time. pm me or find me in dollchat depending.

HOKAY.
ME! - meg

Participants:
1. Lyricanna - miss shape
2. MARLY - moe
3. Shix - angel
4. vivisect - luella
5. Raven - tara
*you must attend regularly or i will chop off your vagina.*

Oh hey! That spot is reserved for me? <3

I'm in! *goes to find a base*

Edit: I decided to go with one of Mariiii's bases too... but I can't decide...

Riri - Really cute and lots of movement, would help me with showing movement.
Flavia - Very nice with realistic proportions, would help me work on realism.
Tara - Smaller realistic-ish base, would help me with smaller bases.
Finn - This one's even smaller, not sure if it would help me learn or just stump me.

Help! <3

hey babe, that spot is for you.
the base would depend on what exactly you want to doll. however, i wouldn't go for the fourth set because we're all trying to use medium-sized bases and that's a little small.

*marks off fourth option*

I took another look and narrowed it down to Riri or Tara... I don't like Flavia too much, she's well done just not what I want.

i think tara would be a wise choice. that way all of the bases that have been chosen are roughly the same in size.

i'll be using this'n by libby.

hmkay so now that we all have our bases chosen, we can move on smoothly. x] or so i'm assuming.
now, i chose my base because i want her to have a specific attitude and i need a good pose for that, though i'm sure i'll edit it some because that's how i roll.

this just goes into the idea of designing your dolls rather than just dressing up naked ladies. give it some thought, however much is up to you, and that would be the first step. before editing and drawing on the outfit.

-allows time for this to sink in-

(also because i'm trying not to get ahead of myself. i don't work in a really concrete manner so it's a little difficult to make up steps as a i go. xD)

luella seems perfect for that kind of outfit
i still dunno if i want the fedora or the beret, or maybe a headband with the black flower thingy, but that's about what i wanted to do with her :3

I'm going hippie for this project. :)

Image

I'm just referencing style, not really color here. The headband thing will be either used for a headband or a necklace. I edited the glove from pink to that tan color... cause the pink looked funky next to all earthy stuff. >_> I don't know if the doll will have as much detail as the shirt shows and I might chop off the sleeves so that I meet the t-shirt requirement from the initial post. :)

NEXT TIME BLU. x]

nice concepts so far guys, looking forward to all of this happening. so excited in the face.

now, next we're gonna get our bases and fill them in with a solid color so that all of the shading is gone. usually what i'll do is fill with the lightest color in the palette from the base and leave the outer color the same. it's simple and quick for me, instead of picking new colors and then probably changing them later on anyway.
in some cases, like if i know i'm going to be dolling a skirt or shorts, i'll leave some little bits of shading to indicate where the kneecaps are exactly, ankles, etc. same with boobies and collar bones when i need em.
i don't think that that will be necessary for this workshop since we'll all be dolling long jeans.

i tend to kill the faces of bases and redo them totally. you can do this and redraw your own or you can keep the placement and then go to redraw. either is fine, i do both depending on the base. sometimes faces are good enough to not need strong edits.

for now, leave the face either blank or with very plain features. no shading please.

the majority of the editing will come next, while you have this clean template to work from. you can go drastic or simple. for example, i've so far edited the shoulders of my doll because they were too round for my liking. i also made her arms skinnier.
right now that's all that i have done because it will be easier to edit the legs when i have the jeans drawn on. she still has no face. that will be the biggest edit on my doll.

i won't post my doll right now because all she is is a naked unshaded lady, and that is nothing to look at.

so i just want y'guys to end up with a similarly unshaded naked lady.

(ask me questions if you need to. ^ that was such an incoherent rant.)
may the force be with you. always.
