I have to second Adam's assessment of the top of her left boot.
The way you've shaded her jacket makes it look like she's leaning forward to expose her cleavage to our view.
Whilst not necessarily bad, it doesn't match the pose of the doll, so if it was intentional, I suggest accentuating her cleavage line with a darker shade.
If it wasn't, I still suggest doing that anyway, but you might want to adjust the shading on her jacket. Personally I think it gives her more character, but I'm a bloke, so feel free to dismiss my opinion as chauvinistic drivel. :P

I'm really impressed by the way you've shaded the hat and hair.
One small thing I noticed is that the transition between blue and dark grey on the right side of the band of the hat is slightly jarring.

Thanks for the comments, guys! I tweaked the doll a bit:




Also, I remembered to save WIPs this time around. So here is a WIP anim in case you're interested.  :D

that wip animation just makes it look so simple - yet i am stunned.

The hat and the skirt are amazing.  The left boot still needs tweaking at the top.  Nothing but praise from me!  ;D

only crit - front hem of the skirt doesnt follow legs quite.  if the knee was really pushed that far over, wouldnt the front of the skirt follow suit, at least a little?  granted, im not exactly the type of guy that wears tight skirts, but it seems a little strange to me that in a garment that tight, the knees could have that much freedom of motion without effecting the cloth.


oh, and colors, smoothness, design, its all great.  lovely work :P

Well, at least the skirt is supposed to be made of heavy denim. A pencil skirt made out of heavy cloth wouldn't drape much, and form pretty tight planes. I could probably tweak it still, but at one point you just have to call it quits. I'll keep it in mind for the next piece though.  ;)

that's exactly my point - if it is that tight, it would move with the knees, so that hem that is centered would get pushed to her left when the knee came forward.  if it had any drape at all the hem would stay pretty stationary.

anyhoo, thats nitpicky :P
