Naomi's How to Cheat at Dolling NEW: Velvet!

Postby Naomi » Tue Apr 20, 2010 7:09 am

I've had this in my ideas file for over a year, but I've never gotten round to doing it. Basically, it's a series of mini-tutorials explaining a 'cheat' that I use sometimes when I doll.

I've made three so far: Awkward dresses, shoes and sparkly jewellery.
I have plans to make on on velvet some time in the future, and maybe on patterns? If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

So, here it is!

This is brilliant! You should do a whole series of these! And, if I may say so: How to cheat at dolling would be an excellent title for a website dedicated to these kinds of tricks and solutions! awesome!

I've just noticed that this is probably better for the tutorials board in Phone Booth...if a mod wants to move it, that's fine.

Erg...that's no good. It might be just coincidence and the server was having problems when you were on the site. Does it work now? The images are loading fine for me.

Ehh, maybe I'm just unlucky, I still don't see them. Must be some kind of internet problem which I didn't realize I had ^^

Raspberry, you could either put a layer filled with dither on a new layer, and select it and just go over it with your colour, or, you could change the spacing of your brush in "brush presets" tab to around 180-200%. That's what I do ^^
