Giving is difficult

Surprises are so easily spoilt; hopefully this spoiler will allow me to maintain some air of mystery.

I have wanted to remake this doll in an art-nouveau-like style since first laying eyes upon it, but the requirement of giving has baffled me. Is her gifting of the star apparent in the sketch, or does she appear to be engaging in some arcane ritual instead?

I think her gifting of the star is pretty clear, and I love the sketch! It's adorable.

Thank you both! I shall continue in this direction, then.

Also, the speed with which you responded is incredible! I could hardly believe my eyes when seeing two replies minutes after posting this topic. :O

We must be opposites because the lineart is the easy part for me, not the shading.

PS) WOW

No. Lineart is death. Probably because there's a lot of pixel pushing and very little to show for your work. Once you get to shading you SEE the results. So much more satisfaction

Looks fantastic!!! I love what you did with the original doll :)

Thank you for your lovely comments! C:

I wholeheartedly agree with Debb. Lineart is perhaps the most tedious component to complete. ; - ; I wish I could freehand pixel lines, but that is beyond my abilities.
Mokia, we should do a collaboration sometime. ;D

I believe this has been completed at last! Should I make any final adjustments?
