Abbey was repainted by me


:star: Repainting a doll is a hard work, and I don't usually keep most of the original character's features because I'm not painting a new version of those characters, I'm changing the doll's face and personality completely to make them unique and different. I mean, to me it would be a waste of time and effort to work hard in a repaint if I'm going to do exactly the same painting the doll already had, at least when it's about a personal repainting and not a commission. :) :star:

Another repaint of Abbey, but in this case is a new Abbey I bought last friday as present for :iconamber-honey:
she's an incredibly talented artist and she helped me a lot with my repaints giving me a lot of good tips and searching the materials I needed with me. It doesn't matter how busy she is, she always have time for me and my silly questions, and I know that's a very rare attitude in good artist, because most of them are extremely rude ><
if I'm improving fast is mainly thanks to her, and as I already told her, a simple "thanks" isn't enough to thank her properly, so I bought a new MH doll, I repainted it and I'll send it to her home^^

and now about the repaint itself:
I don't like when eyebrows don't match hair, but I know she likes cold colors and I just had an impulse, also that violet is only the base, because the little hair are white.
The eyes could have been more symetric, but I really love them, specially the iris :heart: and the eyelashes! at last I'm improving drawing eyelashes!
and this time I used much less blushing with a softer pink tone, and I like it more than before. It's not that llamative, but I guess that's how it must be

feel free to critique to help me get better, but please be respectful with my work! I put a lot of time and effort on this :)

This is Serena's friend Amy, she wanted me to go through her messages and everything and reply and comment but I still have to use my own opinion. I like seeing the dolls you do make-up for. It seems like it would be difficult putting make-up on a doll though. Amazing work!

Looking at your other repaints I can see how you've improved and changed especially when looking at the other Abbey. I think you should consider doing blush in other colors when the skintone is this blueish. That's just a suggestion though but it would be interesting to see how you can make other colors work.

I saw some comments about using other color for blushing, but every time I imagine it I don't like how it would look :s

Well it's your work and you should do what you feel gives your repaints the best possible look. So, keep doing what you're doing.

I already said it in my note, but thanks again for your incredibly sweet gesture! :love:
I actually don't have any MH in my personal collection since I always think they should go to someone else, but it will be wonderful to keep a girl for my own! ; w;
You're always improving and it's so nice to see ^^ Thank you, dear~

I have seen quite a few of your repaints recently and may I say, you did improve a lot on a short time :D I love the eybrows and the pupils. One thing I would change is the lips. Not that they are wrong but for my taste the colour on the inner line of the lips (I have no idea how to call it) is a bit to pinkish especially since the line comes farther out than the lips themselves. But other than that: keep it up like this, you're doing good :)
