@ Axxkat: Yes you can!

The bald looks good on her though! But if you're not happy with the bald, maybe an undercut?

@ druxy: YAY!!

@ Sioraiocht: They both look great! I think the blue and black becomes her more though, it's more suited to her coloring. Blue's not a color I see a lot in Steampunk, there should be more!

@sioraiocht: I like the blue best, but I think she might look even better with kind of a combined color scheme. The lighter version feels too light, but the blue one feels too dark. You could bring in that peachy color of her tights and arm pieces in her corset detailing, or make the ruffles (which are grey in the light version and a different shade of blue in the dark) that same grey color to lighten it up a little.

@Axx - definitely keep the bald! If you really wanted to though, you could always give her a hair piece, like a cool feather or something. But I like her as is. Also looove what you have for Berry so far.

@Sioraiocht - There's this weird conception that steampunk has to be a certain color palette. It doesn't! But I would go for a mix of darks and lights and warms and cools. The blue feels too dark overall, not necessarily for steampunk. Like, more contrast or just a little lighter.

I like how this essentially turned into a couples collab so far.....

@ Axxkat: Wings and gadgets and all other things are okay! Those wings you've made are sooo pretty! Also, am drooling over those ruffles on Berry's skirt, man.

@ Bree: I know right! I love it <3

@ druxy: Oooooo, she's so cute <3 I agree with what Debb said, some statement jewelry would . I really love the fleurs-de-lis (I had to look that up to see what the plural was), maybe you can add some highlight on them to make them pop, like a foil effect?

Image
Here's my WIP of Elliott, my con artist, and he and Ash have never met until just now =/ I'm a little stuck though, because he's being super contrary and doesn't want to dress up. I may switch him out for a different character, not sure yet.

Ash got a little more poof and a few more sparkles and then I had to cut some of her fingers off because I forgot to do so before. I'm on an 1830's kick at the moment, it seems like the Eighties of the Victorian Era XD

ouuu i love the start of your elliot, tals!! maybe a pattern on his vest would spruce him up enough for you?

Image
i'm content to call these two done! i did my best to make the leather jackets look sorta worn but idk. i'm still pretty happy about them, though!

@Tals: I agree, totally. I had to start with that one because any other colors felt SO WEIRD to have her with. But I do agree with the other's its a bit on the dark side x'D I'd love to see more blues in steampunk though.

@Phoenigette: Was that edit closer to what you had in mind? I also made her shoulder straps and shorts that brown color to try breaking up that DEEP BLUE a bit more, especially considering that's also the palette for her hair xD


@Dragyn: Thankfully as of right now, she's still a WIP. ^_^ I knew it was kind of dark, which was why I was fishing around for a little c/c on it. And I appreciate all of it thusfar. o:

Slightly changed color scheme for this one. Does that look better? o:

Okay, so jewelry definitely improved this. I still think she needs something else though?

i like the lil adjustments you made, panda!! :) the change in sleeve color really helped :)

the accessories helped your doll alot, druxy! i love her lil headwear accessory! :) i'd maybe shade the whites of her eyes a bit. that stark white contrast against the nuetral tones of her outfit might be what is throwing it off a little. adding some contrast to her socks might help, too. maybe some chains under the puffy part of her sleeve? also i know it's been said already but i really love the lil fleurs-de-lis along her skirt! the bold stripes are really well done.

@AxxKat; omg they're both so cute!! and i love berry's hair so much, you're always so good at doing hair! and miles' face is so pretty and it reminds me a bit of daisy ridley?? i love it

Image
ok så anyways, here's a wip of my dolls. i did lo first (the one to the left) and when all you guys were giving your characters dates, i had to give lo a date as well. cx i think i'll call her eira.

BUT i'm not sure if they are 'steampunk-y' enough?? maybe the colours are a bit to bright, idk? or maybe something's missing? i probably should add more details?

-faints and is so flattered- thank you, lex!!! :) i'm 110% happier miles reminds someone of daisy ridley :'D

THOSE ARE SO FANTASTIC!! they look amazingly steampunk. and i love their designs so much like hot damn you are good at that haha. giving the lady some stripey stalkings might help her look more steam punk to you? but honestly they both look great already!!

@druxy - I really like her design!

@tals - I had similar problems with Bas. It was hard to find the balance between "obvious steampunk ballroomness!" and "too casual". Try some tails or a pattern or something. Adding the pattern to Bas' vest made a huge difference!

@Axx - They look amazing!!

@Panda - I like the blue better!

@Lex - First of all - THERE IS NO SPECIFIC DEFINITION OF "THIS IS STEAMPUNK". There's mainstream, and I wouldn't say it's mainstream steampunk, but I could totally get a Steampunk vibe from this. When in doubt, add a pocketwatch. Eira looks pretty steampunk-y to me though.

DEBB POST A DAMN WIP.

Bree you're a slave driver

@panda- new colors look great, really breaks it up.

@druxy- earring is so much better! I would try for more contrast with the fleur-de-lis. Make them lighter on the skirt, darker on the top. Or make the top lighter.

@Lex that's totally steampunk, the colors are actually very steam, even though they're bright. Love it!

Looks great nicki!!

Oh man, this thread exploded! LOL

@ Axxkat: Ooooo, they turned out amazing!

@ Panda: I agree with everyone else, the new color scheme looks awesome! Really like the accents around her waist =)

@ druxy: Oh yes, the jewelry definitely fleshes her out more <3

@ Lex: Those are definitely steampunk looks to me! I love those colors too, though I might be biased because those are some of my faves. Both of their outfits are to die for, I want Lo's so bad.

@ StormNicki: OOO, in with the sneak attack, yay! I love it! <3 <3

Among other tweaks, I made her sclera darker and shaded them some more. I think this is probably done, unless anyone wants to point out anything that looks truly awful about it?
