mm, my only problem with the edit is that he doesn't look like he has any fur any more. It looks like smooth skin and that's not really what I'm going for. I AM trying to do an above lightsource, it looks like yours is much more obvious from that so I'll pay attention to where you've put the light but I still want it to have more texture. I'll shift around the shading for more contrast.

Thanks for your edits :D

I've got to not make the highlight so bright. But I'm not sure what you mean by the fur highlights. You said the highlights should be more red and the shadows more green, yet you're saying it's too green overall.

The light source is coming from the top, that's why the tail is shaded from the top.

So I shortened out the legs and made the arms.

Something tells me the legs are still too wonky.

Thanks for the crit on the wings Alex. I sort of liked the dark outline on the top, though. Because it defined it more. Maybe a not so dark outline?

I hear ya. Too much saturation. AAANd. boring pose. I changed the legs from inspiration and help :D

I need to fix the shading, I know and the toes are all wonky but I'm still unsure of how to fix the hands. I was thinking maybe in the air, one on each side,  palms up. XD kind of a holy pose.

and, yes. I want to make it look semi-human like.

I also added that highlight you recommended. Worked well. :D

So here's my recent st00fs. :) Horror Movie Emotes:

I realize the anti-alias of the vampire is much more light than the others (which I will fix later). I think the zombie isn't very good. So I'd like some critiques. :D

Also I made this flying monkey for no real reason.


I think that the biggest problem is that well, it's boring. The pose is kind of crap. SO I'm going to fix that and make it more dynamic but I wanted to post it and see what you guys think thus far.

Thanks.  ;)


BTW, where the hell can I change my AV? LOL. I looked under Forum Profile Information and it's not there.

The one on the right is better in the newest post. I really hope you keep texturing the feathers.

Within the dolling community, "simple edits" are also very much frowned upon. A doll is only considered good if it's severely (and competently) edited from it's base.

I would disagree. Why? Because 85% of "good dolls" are based on popularity, not skill. Case in Point, Tee. She does have talent but she uses the same pieces on many dolls over and over again and doesn't really do anything besides her basic witch type of scheme. She doesn't have all THAT much talent, but she'll get 10x more replies than most dollers when she posts something because she's the freakin' Whimsical Witch or whatever. Just my opinion.

My main issue with the dolling community is the extreme amount of bullshitting that goes on in place of constructive criticism. In my experience, when you post a doll you rarely, even when asked for, get CC. You just get pages and pages of "Tat's really cute!!!". That's my issue. And when you try and critique people and help them, you're labelled a bitch, insensitive, or harsh. Such has been my experience in trying to go back to the dolling community. I tried to give critique to people and was asked who died and mad me god, then was subsequently banned.

98% of dollers I've seen are not serious about improving on their art. They act like their so emotionally attatched to their work when a lot of them copy, mirror, paste. And god forbid somebody would frankendoll *LE GASP* then you've got a whole witch hunt on your hands because 98% of them also are immature in general.

I used to be a doller. I'm not anymore. I don't take issue with editing bases. I don't think that's unoriginal or not creative. What I take issue with is the entire maturity and bullshit atmosphere of the dolling community. It's just not my cup of tea AT ALL anymore.
