Then and Now: Violet by MySweetQueen-Dolls Then and Now: Violet by MySweetQueen-Dolls


CONTEST!!! All the information about it here: Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!What is this contest about?:
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
(PLEASE, READ THE RULES BEFORE DO THE DRAWING)
You could win a Monster High doll drawing!

Spectra was repainted by me
Dress made by :iconfiremoon5:


: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:

Mybe the most noticeable change between her first repaint and the last one from all my MH dolls.
The first was really the 3rd I did since I started, and it was a mess because I didn't expect her eyes to be so damn huge, first I tried to paint them completely but it was even worse, and when trying to draw them a bit closed... well it was a mess anyway.
I liked the lips and cheeks, but the eyes killed my self esteem and I always wanted to repaint her again when I get better.
So I tried just a few days ago when I felt my technique have improved, and I feel so proud now. I know I have to keep improving, but looking at this comparison I'm so happy knowing all the money, effort and time I spent on learn to repaint worth it.

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 :)

Amazing improvement! Overall, the symmetry is much better, the makeup is very soft, smooth and well-blended, and the irises of her eyes look glossy almost like glass. The colors used are very complementary to each other (especially in relation to her hair) and her expression makes her look very beautiful. It's really amazing how much you've improved in such a short amount of time. Great job! :)

don't worry about it, you couldn't pay the commission until you had the money :)
also I'm very patient about buisness, and I know sometimes getting money isn't something fast

But. I just don't like to keep you waiting for something that takes awhile to start and complete.
I'm not sure how you do it, I would be dying by now. XD
It's not easy, but I do have enough money. I just haven't been able to talk to my mom about PayPal which like I said we will be going over PayPal tomorrow and hopefully I can convince her to be able to let me use it! <3
Seeing that I've been talking ALOT about this to her. ^^
So... would you buy the wig yourself? Or am I suppose to?

:iconmysweetqueen-dolls:
MySweetQueen-Dolls Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013
I understand, no prob :)
I saved your comment about the repainting, but it seems we were talking about the wig in another one and I can't find it, but I remember we decided I'll buy the wig with the extra money we added to the final price.
That means you'll pay the wig and I'll do all the process, so in the end your frankie will be shipped with the wig instead of each one separately :)
