I totally understand how you feel. I felt that way at some point during both the auditions and round 1, and I'm borderline feeling like that while working on Round 2.

Honestly, I know this would be cutting it really close, but what helped me in both the past rounds was restarting and changing my concept. I went as far back as even changing bases in the auditions from what I originally had. Both times I did it, I ended up with something that I liked A LOT more than the original concepts I used. And the fact that I was more excited about those entries than the original concepts helped me to keep working and get them done in time.

Even now in round 2, I wasn't feeling all that good about the face, so instead of continuing with the teeny tweaks at a time, I took the portion of the face I was unhappy with, went all the way back to flat colors and reshaded and again it helped my motivation a lot.

So I know it's getting really close to the deadline, but maybe think about what it is about the entry that YOU think isn't working (not what the C/C says isn't working) and go back to the drawing board on how to fix it and see if you can find something you'd like to do more.

Ahhh thank you guys! But portraits just aren't my forte, so I don't really enjoy doing them. :'( It's just like I know fullbody is easier, especially since I dither a lot-which looks much better on a small base imo. Plus just like, I know this isn't the best I can do, and the deadline is coming up and tbh I'd rather not turn something in then turn in something bad. But I also want to go on, but at the same time I'm not good at fashion and my last entry was even called boring lol, so idk I'm just a little out of dolling steam methinks. ,w,

Shix- idk how the hell you doll so quickly xD You managed to take the original concept and absolutely improve, and serious props to you, I love your entries uwu
The problem is-I have a lot of concepts prior, and I really like this one! It's just idk I think I need more time and there's no deadline-and on top of that work is kicking my ass so I might just drop. I'll try and get it in but idk;;;

But I'll try! ;w; <333333

I think I'm done, unless someone has something to say? Her hair is really messy, but to be fair curly hair is floofy. .o. I even AA'd the edges at the hairline lol

Aaaaaall righty then, time to dust of this topic. Idk if I'm going to get cut or not, but for this round, the theme is Haute Couture. Now, as you can see from my R1 entry, I don't know anything about fashion, so I'm going to list here a bunch of foods I would like to maybe design and hope for the best.

Also, for this-I would like to keep the design androgynous, but preferably masculine clothing, so I will probably draw more from Mens HC then womens.

Sorry for triple post :x I'm an ass sorry guys!!!!!

not looking at the file name, maybe a guess? The pants might give it away what it's based off of. And yes they're going to be VERY green, and probably going to be a satin fabric too b/c the food I chose is very shiny!!!

I think it's really great that you're doing androgynous clothing, but try to keep in mind what a designer would think about when designing clothes for women. The chest area of your latest wip, in particular, looks like it was designed for a male model due to the way the shirt is so flat over her boobs. Try to look at some masculine runway fashions and see how male clothing is designed to be worn by women. Runway models are not very busty creatures, usually, but the clothing is designed to be flattering to that area. In masculine women's lines it's usually looser in the bust area to give the illusion of a flat chest without completely being flat. Even a AA's got a little something something going on.

Looking good so far! I know it's just roughed in currently, but be careful of how pointy the shoe is on the foot pointing towards us.
I need a new signature...

ahhhhh thank you both very much! ;;A;; It means a lot ahh

I think I should probably make the shoes more round to match w/ the pants, but I'm reaaaaally not sure about those shoes, they're kind of scribbled on xD If anyone has any ideas, please do tell me!!

It's gravlax! The pants are supposed to be rye bread but I might make the vest longer into a more dress type thing and make the pants kind of a leggings thing. idk

The sleeves are supposed to be dill leaves, idek \(owe)/

Sadly I probably won't finish. It's sunday now so I need to sleep, and I'm beyond exhausted. I've really pushed my sleep to the limit and I'm not feeling well ,w,;;; woops lol

I'll try and finish if the deadline stops tonight but other than that I might drop, my health comes first and I need to remember that. ,w,

Thanks for all the support everyone <3333
