Okay! Here we go..

Image

First up: Marlypop! :D

So far your portrait is looking okay! The bun thing is kinda oddly shaped, but maybe it's just me. The yellow and green sections seem too small, kinda. Like if it was a real persons hair it seems like the poof would be lopsided, because that blue section is a lot bigger. But maybe when you shade it it'll look better.

For the full body, the hair is really really stiff. I fixed up some areas to make it more flowy, and on the right, her left side, I added some curls, just as an idea or reference possibly, because right now her hair doesn't really look curly. It looks just kinda wavy, but then again, it depends on what you're going for. But other than that it looks good!

Up next: Lil kim!

Your lines are waaaaaay too stiff! When doing hair it's best to free hand instead of just using the line tool, because then it just looks like your doll has plastic hair, and that's just not good. I did some quick sketches over top of yours to show what I mean. Also, your hair lines are really low. On the pictures, I put a red line to show around where the hair line should be.

Chrissy:

The full body looks good! I like the movement. But maybe try to clean it up a little? It's really jagged.

The portrait looks okay. I'll agree the hairstyle is weird, but maybe that can be fixed when we start shading. (:

No explanation, really. Just shade it one section at a time, as shown. If you have questions, ask.
