wooo, let's do this!

Ok, hi!
Boy, am I SOO rusty! :D But it's good to be back.

First, the dolls.

Image
Base is our own exclusive by Duckie, which I've always loved. :D It's just me, in my black. I wear a lot of black.
^^^ I fixed it! Thanks guys! Imgur is a a good fit for me.


Image
Bases are all https://zipple.deviantart.com I believe I may have used some of the old Xandorra patterns, but I honestly don't remember, because I did this over a year ago, and it took me like 6 months to get it all done!

This is... a mess. Characters from a novel I'm writing. If you knew me as Chaplin back in the day, you might recognize the big guy as my favorite OC, Jeffry. He's all grown up and he's got friends! :)

I'm in the process of re-doing this on the other Zipple base, but who knows!

:bob:

So, a few things about this whole me, a full-time college student, getting back into something as time-consuming as dolling...
You're gonna see a lot of unshaded black. You're gonna see a lot of copy-paste sides of hair/jeans/etc.
You'll obvs never see frankendolling. I've been in this scene since 2002, I know my rules. ;) But mostly like... this is just about fun now, it's not about being *the best*.

But I wanna thank http://dollingfordummies.artzy.org/tutorials.html - from Artzygrrl, for consolidating a ton of great tutorials! That was... super-de-duper helpful, even if now it's almost doin' too much to be excellent at something I did for 10 years, then didn't do for 6 years. :D

Anyway, hope you enjoy! <3 you all!

<3 I'm so glad you're finding it helpful! And hey, we all get it...most of us are college age or older now. It's totally fine if you're not interested in becoming a "professional doller" (LOL)...but hopefully the helpful tips of others will be there for when you have a little extra time over a break or whatnot and want to work really hard on making something extra-awesome.

I can't see the top image, not sure what's up with that? :( But love the image of all your OCs!

yay! thank you for the encouragement, I know it's hard for us "olds" to do something that's an inch tall and takes 5 hours to make lol

I dunno why you can't see the first picture, I checked twice in previews and it's coming up! Do you have any suggestions as to good image hosting sites? I'm currently using my google photos, which could be the issue. :D

I use my deviantart account, you can just right click (or CMD click if you have a Mac) on the full image and select "copy image address" from the menu that pops up. Then you should be able to post it on forums. You can post from your st.ash that way too.

I cannot see the first image, either! I would recommend posting it on Imgur provided that it is hidden, or on sta.sh.

Eee, they all turned out so well! :mrgreen: I agree that the black jeans look awesome! I really like the way you shade hair! And your palettes are really nice, too!

Glad to have you back!! Don't worry too much about being the best or perfect or anything!! Just have fun and do what you want! :mrgreen:
