Vampire Diaries Collab - Updated 8/02

Post by thetrappedartist » Fri Mar 19, 2010 9:09 am

I read the Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith back when they were pretty new and was thrilled when thanks to the success of other vampires, it was made into a show! Although there are significant differences between the books/show, both are kick-a** and very strong.

I'd like this collab to be of characters inspired by either the books or show and I'm hesitant to limit the base because I'd like more people to enter and not feel hindered by base selection. :) To expand the choices, up 4 ppl may doll the same character and you may doll as many characters as you like.

I've attached a few links to familiarize ppl with it and some of the fan sites cover both medias with pics!

I love the tv show! I haven't read the books, but I will when I have time.

Can I have Damon? 8)

as far as bases go, I think that having one base would work best, so that one doll doesn't overpower the rest. But then again, I would hate it if everyone chose a huge base, and I just had to go along with it. hmmm... conundrum lol

I think I want to try on this one... the problem I'll run into is that the book characters look so different than the TV series.

Elena wears a lot on the tv show, so that gives more people chances to doll her if you go with that one. :)

I'm looking to doll Tv show Elena in her 1950s dance outfit and possibly Bree because I love Gina Torres :)

Did you want tv or book elena?

Can I have TV show Katherine? :D And as far as the base, what about Moe from DHF? It's a pretty versatile base with male counterpart for the oh so smexy Salvatore brothers ;)
I need a new signature...

Updated the requests so far :)

My only hesitancy about assigning a set base is proficiency. I LOVE Suzy's Moe base (it's my fav for seeing dolls made on) but to put it mildly, I cannot doll on large bases (and for me that's very large) to save my life!

I'm still quite a dolling newbie and just lately branching out for various poses on the micro base. Haven't posted any of my non-standard pose work here yet to show that.

I understand the continuity of using a single set base in a collab but as I stated earlier I would rather have anyone interested contribute than be put off or intimidated by the base choice.

However, this is simply my opinion on the matter! I'm more than willing to try a bigger base *cringes* but I warn you that the end result wont be pretty, lol. ;)

I'm with you on the moe base... the last time I tried it was horrid (omg I used a british word! :D). But I'm ready to try again if the majority votes for it.

otherwise, my base preference is rather cutesy, and I'm not sure vampires would work on them.
but I'll still suggest them, cause I wanna start soon before my break ends lol.

In order to keep this collab alive and moving, I'm going to make it creator's base choice, so get dolling!

No and no discussions on it either started, so to get things going I mentioned in an older post that the base would be whatever you preferred so that the collab wouldn't die. :)

Here's Katherine. Her dress is a bit different from how it appears on the show, but I love it anyway.

I like that it's different yet something I can that evil vixen working! The folds are beautiful and the colors rich against her fair skin. Lovely work :)

Feel free to doll more characters if you like! :D

Thanks for showing me this, btw. I think it's awesome.

Anyway, I already told you on dA that I was redoing Elena. I'm doing her by the book- so yep, blonde hair.

Edit:

She's done... after 35 minutes of no distractions. Not my best, but I like her. I loath doing jeans, but I like how these turned out, and her hair is kinda nice too. Maybe too light? I dunno.
