okay, so I've got a new problem that i need to figure out before I do the hair...Do you guys like the rose or not? Should I shade the black part? I kind of want to just leave it but I think that there might be too much detailed shading on the top and that if I didn't shade it then it would mess up the balance...

And does anyone have hair color suggestions? I WAS going to do black but there might be too much black after that...idk what else would look good through

I think her body facing forward would be awesome if your going with rockabilly hair because they have awesome boobs with the clothes they wear!
I COULD be wrong but her head looks a little too big, maybe elongating her torso would even her out.

If your going with a pony tail up do, try this dress =D

yeah on the back one the bodys way too small,lol. I tend to do that accidentally- I added a front view(which has enough anatomical problems in itself><) and made it a more appropriate size there

thx for the links:D

i think having a dark purple/pink hair like her lips are would look awesome

and maybe move the rose over so its on her left side instead

I think it's quite fine. The dress's top looks great, and if you shade that rose there, that'd create the balance between the details of the top and bottom parts.

Also, make her hair the same color as the rose, if that doesn't clash with the skin.

Your shading is EPIC.. I am AMAZED at your skill here.. brilliant. Wow.. just wow..

Anywho.. ummm.. suggestions..

I would suggest doing the hair red, or perhaps a white or yellow blonde (not a 'natural' blonde), or (call me crazy) GREEN...

I think the shaded portion of the dress is AMAZING and I'd recommend finishing the folds throughout.

Just.. seriously.. wow.. I have to see this done...
:shock:



Man I wish I could make something that good... ..

I think you should keep the rose :) It's a nice detail!
I personally really think you should shade the whole dress, it will look awesome!
I think she would look great with like.. dark (brown?)reddisch hair.. In maybe a hairstyle like this.
But anyways, thats just my opinions (: BTW, this doll rocks! Srsly the shading is killing me with gorgeousness xD <3

I'm kinda torn on the shading issue... but i think you should keep the rose, it adds a nice amount of detail to her. I think her hair should be candy apple red(oh noze car references lol) With bleached blonde streaks in it by the roots. :D
Can't wait to see her finished! :shock: :shock: :shock:

If you're keeping the rose, same color as the rose. If not, same color as the lips.

i think you should shade the dress, make the hair like a deep pinkish (like her nails..or her lips)...

but really my only problem is her ear...it's way too small ...o.o

lol...that's all i can say about it really, it's gorgeous so far!

I can't wait to see it finished.

I agree with Nicolabear. The hair would look good in the pinkish range.
I also think that the dress could be shaded just alittle more.
Keep the rose, it makes it look that much better
and lastly, this is just me but the back of the head looks funny. like theres too much of it wich makes the face looked like someone pulled it forward or shifted it.
Great Job thoigh i really like the way you doll

I think straight out pink hair might be a little too harsh on this. The subtle use of pink is very pretty already, too much of it would be distracting. I say go with the black hair and maybe add one or two pink streaks. That'd look really cute with a rockabilly style cut, in my opinion :D

I actually like the unshaded dress. Maybe just add some highlights around where her fingers are to indicate folds and such.

This is turning out super pretty so far. Can't wait to see the finished product!

i wouldn't shade the dress.
not shading it keeps alot of the focus on her
as for the hair, black with a blondish streak, something a little yellow to match her skin since i has yellow. I could be wrong <.<.

thanks for the feedback everyone! I really appreciate it! I think I probably prefer the one with less shading and the rose..


Rhapsody-Girly- I was going to put it on the left, but then it covers the hand and I really like the fingers *lol* I sort of think it balances out the left arm that sticks out a lot too

DawnSierra-thanks,lol. and in response to the last part- your av is bloody fantastic, so you had better not say that again ^^

Stinio- Wow that hair is fantastic! I dont want to cover up her shoulders much though, now that I've finished shading the body so I was thinking of doing an updo or something

Nicolabear- yeah I know the ear is extremely little- I only noticed it after it was finished so I've been ignoring it since thenXD I will fix it though, if the hair doesnt cover it- thanks!

mermalo- i thought the skull was fine,lol- it will be covered anyways though ^^

Chocotini- I was thinking that pink hair might be too much as well- i think I'll probably do what you said and just make some pink streaks somewhere, like in the bangs or something. I'm gonna see if the rockabilly style will work- I planned to do it but I'm not sure anymore. lol this doll actually started out as a christina aguilera portrait. That went out the window pretttty fast thoughXD

Filthy Gorguz- I did the shaded version and one with minimal shading because I think your right about taking focus away from her- I think I probably like the one will less shading best

princessleo- thanks! lol just wondering what makes the style not pleasing to look at?

i really like the rose. as for her hair, i agree with everyone who said dark purple, or dark green. you could do blonde, but it might look strange.

hair styles, i would do a messy updo maybe with a smaller rose or rose petals in her hair, but you could also do sort of 50's inspired hair like so

also, i feel that her lips are too bright of a pink. it detracts from her skin.

excellent work so far though, dither queen :D

I like the first version much better. :3

Although, I do think the shading is really strange on her bottom half. It looks as if her thighs are just straight across, and don't have any curve to them. I'm also a little confused as to what the highlighted lump just under her bewbies is. D: I can't really explain what I'm trying to say, so I hope these pics help!

I think she's great so far though. I love the dress design, and her face is just beautiful.

I think a dark brown with a hint of red in it would look nice ^^

The colour should be muted though.. like with alot of gray-y tones P:


hope I made sense >.<
