Go Baseless!

Post by Vayliya » Thu Jun 24, 2010 8:49 pm

Ever seen a baseless doll and thought 'I could never do that'?
Want to learn to work through it?

It is much easier than it looks if you follow simple steps.

I will be going over how I work on baseless work and give you a crash course in baseless.

I decided to take more and help more people. We can reach the masses!

I'm going to have to drop out. :( My wrists have been horrible lately, and I shouldn't be dolling. Maybe you can take someone else considering the lesson's just started? :/ Sorry for the inconvenience. *sporks wrists* >.<

Lesson 2 Concept Sketch

this is my quick sketch like no lie 15-30 minutes
I may or may not keep the dress but I like the flow idea atm

Yes it is crappy but what were you expecting
I had too many ideas in my head for this one so I will see where it goes at lineart phase but I am sure most of what is here will be just cleaned up for the lineart phase'
Image

I don't like to add hair in this step cause it gets in the way for me
I think I will work her underskirt so it becomes shadows and it will look more like

I may rework my sketch to make the underskirt heavier

it is a little big but I think you are slightly heading in the wrong direction. Go ahead and doodle the clothes too cause we aren't making a base then a doll but an entire piece at once :)

I would love it if I could add this lamp in, and some carpet. I will do that independently :D

And I changed my previous post with a new hairstyle I would like to make, and the lamp ref.
