Re: Dress-Up Games?

Subeta's wardrobe system is amazing for that. And since the site has been online since 2006 (and Custom Wearables have been around since 2012), there's soooo many items to choose from. You can only make your avatar public if you own all the items on it, but you can make and save an avatar with any w...

Re: It's A Group Thing

You do a great job creating individual style within an overall theme. None of them look like they're trying to copy one another, or like soulless shadows. Tia and Lulu might both be wearing high tops, but Tia has a much more reserved style whilst Lulu is like "ALL THE SKIN." Well done. :)

I've been working on putting together all the information I can on clothing from 1998-2004, because those years are featured heavily in my work.

Re: here's some human dragons

Okay, all three of these came out adorbz, but I have to say I'm really digging Alanna. I know this sounds weird, but I get more of a sense of.. cohesiveness from her.

Yay! Keeping the tradition alive! *high five* Are you finding it's more difficult now to doll them in clothes like they were way back when, now that RL fashions have moved on? Though Lulu's my fav. Those cute little chucks!

Hmm... lab rat?

I made this for Pax over at Subeta of her scientist character who is working in one of those creepy laboratories to support his wife. I've never really tackled this kind of scene before in pixel or painting, so this was brandy-new to me. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. I redrew the...

Re: Christmas Gingerbread scene

The snowman does an excellent job of filling the empty space on the right, so I'm glad that you persevered with it! It also gives us a sense of depth. This would be super cute as address label stickers, or something of the sort. You did an excellent job making it all come together.

Re: The druid and my Christmas doll scene

That druid scene is such a cute and detailed doll. It reminds me of dolling when I first got into it, more than a decade ago. I don't see so much of that anymore, which is really kind of sad. Your work is very detailed and the composition is excellent.

Re: Avondval (Nudity Warning!)

So I see you say that hair is not your strongsuit, but your work clearly shows me otherwise. You cannot tell me those luscious curls are not touchable. And that mermaid hair is spot on where it meets the invisible ground, which is definitely not easy.
