CONTEST!!! All the information about it here:
Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!What is this contest about?:(PLEASE, READ THE RULES BEFORE DO THE DRAWING)
Draw my doll Sophie
you can draw her chibi, realistic or in your own style, but her face must be always visible and you must draw her joints. She is a doll, I wouldn't like her to look like she wasn't. This means you MUST draw her joints, but you can draw her with any expression, like if she was alive.
You can draw her with the clothes she has in the photos or even design your own clothes for her, so you have total freedom about it.
how many drawings can I do for this contest?:
As many as you want without limit, as long as they are 100% original and finished (full colored). No work in progress, no drawings in striped paper.
Traditional or digital?:
Both are accepted
Please, be original:
Don't steal other people's drawings, don't use bases, and please, don't just copy a photo T_T
You may use a photo as a reference, but don't traze it.
If you do, you will be kicked out from the co
You could win a Monster High doll drawing!

Spectra was repainted by me
Dress made by
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.
She was the first MH doll I had, and seeing the improvement in my last repaints I decided to paint her again to see the difference with the previous one. I remember how scared I was when I decided to remove her factory makeup and start with my first repaints, and I felt so disappointed with the result, but it definitelly worth it when I did this and I compared.
At first I was going to paint her cute, but Spectra's face is really apropiated for regal and angry expressions and my character Violet is totally like that, also I read some comments asking me for different expressions, so in the end I decided to paint her like an altive princess. I also tried to make her look kinda sweet at the same time, like someone who is always acting like a diva but has a sweet side in the deep, I don't know if you get what I mean.
I really love how the eyes and eyebrows came out, it was a real challenge!
Also she won't be for sale, but I'm thinking about repaint another spectra and sell her on etsy
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

i love the shade of purople used!! its gorgeous!!
I think her expression is lovely! Very posh and kind of aggressive (not in a mean way, more like assertive). I don't know if it'll help you, but what really helped me when I started working with expressions was one of these: [link] even if it's just drawing and not painting it really helps you get a feel for the small differences in eye, brown, and mouth shapes (although I understand reshaping mouths on a repaint is very difficult). Not sure if that is helpful advice, but I learned a lot from that exercise! Either way you have improved a lot and I enjoy seeing your new stuff every time it pops up
Bonita princesa muņeca.
I love the color of her eyes
Her harsh mascara looks perfect for her character!
I'm not really into dolls but damn this paint job is really good. Great job
She has always been my favorite MH doll you have, and your repaints for her just make me love her even more each time
