Not sure if I should be adding hair or shoes yet (and also not sure what I'm doing with the shoes anyways). Also, is the face looking alright?

fixed up some things that were bothering me. creases in the shirt were to solid and straight. the neck was kind of thick and weird so i did that as well. also, don't forget to add ears. xD
yes, shoes and hair are required before we can all move on to the next step of shading.

nice lyric. but i need the hair filled in with one color only. i know that this might be how you doll normally but it's my rules up in here and that ain't how i roll.
i don't use palettes and i don't differentiate between the layers in hair.

The character has different colours on each layer, so this isn't a shading thing per se. I can change it though.

i know how that is. the doll i'm doing is a character as well. she had no appearance in my mind whatsoever until i started the doll so it was good to get it down in a visual.



okay, how many people have their dolls ready to start shading?

I haven't updated my doll yet, but go ahead and move on if you want. I'll make the changes and add the new step sometime tomorrow if I don't get to it today. Today I've gotta get a last piece of homework done for finals and clean my room for graduation. =) I should be completely free tomorrow though.

EDIT: ...except for a family dinner when my grandparents get in town....>> Ok. I'm definately totally free this Saturday and this coming Monday. Something will be up by one of those days. XP Graduation makes things so busy. I'm sorry.

there you go, shix. it's hard to see how well something is going to look when it's unshaded and flat but you can see the difference now after i've gone through. hopefully that helps you understand what i was saying before because i don't think you totally got it.
in part, the base is weird because of the angle. and that shirt might be a tad bit hard to shade because of the way the bottom falls. good luck to you on that. xD

YAY PROGRESS.

Image

we're going to start by shading the pants. there are a lot of different colors that can be used for jeans: faded or dark or closer to a blue-green or grey. it all depends on what exactly you want to do with them, how they would look with the rest of the outfit or the character in mind. just remember that a navy blue isn't the only color you can use. that gets old really fast.

i don't use palettes for my dolls, just telling you guys now. but the color i pick to start shading the jeans will be the second lightest or something close to it. so pick a color that isn't much darker than the fill color but enough to be able to see it. and start your shading. =]
because the styles aren't all the same in here i can't give specifics about what to do for all of them. but don't shy away from ref pictures if you need them. and ask me for help if you're having difficulties.

looking at the wip's... fitted straight jeans will be pretty straight in shading except around the knees and maybe the ankles. bell bottoms will have more shape around where the fabric overlaps the feet.
may the force be with you. always.
