New Banner!

Yuppers! I have been so active recently, don't you just love it!

I made the new banner:
I didn't make the dress, or the hair, I got them from a picture! I changed how the body looked, and the dress..I made it look more like a graphic! I hope you all like it!

Shadowing and more!

So more graphics!

I'm not sure if people read this blog but to those who do, here's more!

So for this one, I wanted to focus on the dress, so I just did a shot of the body! I started with the dress, and used a filter called 'Cartoon' and it made the dress look very close to a graphic! NOTE: I DID NOT MAKE THE DRESS :D Then I used a tool to outline the body and I did the shawdowing! Last, I layered different sized brushes and different colored brushes to make the hair! Very simple, and quick, yet it came out nice!
This graphic is something I did while FIRST experimenting with shadowing! It's not perfect, but it's pretty good! As you can see, I shadowed by making layers of color, and then blurring the whole thing into a nice blend!

Are they good? What do you think?


So today I edited my dolls face on gimp..

Here is the before (on stardoll)
All plain and awesome :D

And here is the after:

As you can see, I got the nose more....shiny! I gave the cheeks a purple tint...also with more glare of the upper cheek bones. I also changed the color of the lips to be a beautiful peach! Finally, in my opinion I made the neck look more life like, and not just be those lines that look like waves!
