Not really motivated to work on this one. Part of the reason is probably pants. There’s something about pants that I dread. I plan on pixel-shading, which isn’t helping my pants-dread.

It might not look like it but I’m trying something different with the hair. Normally when I tool-shade hair, I touch it up with a few layers set to multiply or dodge. I’d like to move away from that, since I don’t do it for things like clothes or skin.
There are bits of the blue wren doll that I really like. And then there are bits that are really iffy. I spent hours working on that face and it just doesn’t look the way I want it to be. I think the nose is a big problem. So I guess I’ll leave it for now and see how the other dolls turn out. Man, doing a set of dolls and trying to make them work together is really hard. And from the looks of it, the gif monster is going to destroy this unless I save as png.

First base is from Firefly’s World, a long-dead site. I quite like the base (except the face) and have been meaning to use it again for years. Second base is by Anlina S.I have been meaning to do doll a larger person for a while now, since they’re lacking in my gallery and this is a nice base. Sometimes people forget that overweight people can be pretty too. I’d like it if there was a balance of sizes among models. And that any model with a bit of flesh wasn’t called “plus-sized”. Then again, I also don’t like how women declare that only women with curves are “real women”. I’d like to think I’m a real woman too.
