I've never heard of turning designs into pixel art! That's pretty cool! I like it!

Eee, a doller! Cheesy I used to doll like CRAZY. It's what got me into designing clothes and stuff, really--it taught me that shirts and shorts are boring forever... Aaah, I miss dolling (can't do it right now, my tablet is serial port and my desktop is dead ... and of course my lappy has no serial. Sad )
But that is one awesome dolly, cute cute Smiley I see you pixel shade Cheesy
Now I want to show one off >.>
 

Not at all my best art wise, but an entertaining outfit... Smiley base


Another cool design, base from Mizuna which I'm pretty sure is gone (haven't been able to find it online in the past few years)

Cheesy Whee! (totally not my fav dolls, but recently I've mostly dolled gaia outfits, ragnarok online chars, etc, so they don't really belong in this fashion doodling thread! Hehe, I should scan in some of my actual fashion doodles and the actual clothes they resulted in Cheesy)

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

Dollers! Yay, I didn't know there were any of us on here.  Grin I've been doing pixel art for several years, it actually helps a lot with my real life drawing because I understand how clothing fits and flows better.

Here's a couple of my most recent dolls.  Smiley

Smiley It's good to know there's more than just two. Smiley I find designing for dolls does help me with my outfits in real life and give me ideas for stuff. Like what colors work together and such. I do like to draw too so I've found it also helps with my proportions when I actually draw. Smiley

Please pardon my old age, lame and out of the loop of reality dumbness... Cry Undecided  But what are these dolls (z)?  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

Quit laughing... I really don't know. Cry

Do you create them yourself or is there some sort of (pattern?) to start with and you dress them? This sounds like something I fun might try. Probably with minimal success, but it is something different to try?  Roll Eyes

Dolling is a form of pixel art, where you start with a base, usually made by someone else that you saved to your computer, and you draw clothes and hair on it in the editing program of your choice. It's basically just like dressing a real doll, hence the name. Smiley Most people call them dolls, dollz is an older term from when it first caught on.

Most dollers prefer pixel-shading, where you draw and shade your doll pixel by pixel, but there's also tool-shading where you use helpful tools within your editing program like burn and dodge to shade your dolls.

Once you've completed your doll you can post it on a forum or your website, making sure to give the base creator credit.

There are lots of dolling forums where people post their finished dolls and bases, and offer critique and tutorials. I personally am a member at What the Muffin, they have a really friendly community and a lot of good dollers post there. I actually found craftster through a different dolling forum a couple of years ago.  Grin

This is my dolling site, and here are some others that might inspire you to try it out:

There's a super long article on wikipedia about dolling too. If you aren't offended by barbie doll type nudity then you can do it. Most bases look a lot like a neekid barbie. Which basically leaves you with everything to your imagination. I have a few base templetes I've made on my site. And you are more than welcome to use them to play with and see if you like it. I've been dolling for about four years now and it's quite fun but does take some practice. Smiley
A great site if you are planning to pixel shade is bunnystick.com she has lots of great tuts for using MSpaint. Smiley
Anyways I didn't mean to hijack the thread just wanted to show off my version of fashion doodling. Smiley

Sooo .. I had my textiles AS retake today, for design, and it was to come up with innovative designs related to food & drink  Embarrassed so, i used the theme of international cuisine and came up with these initial ideas:


Not as good as some of them on here already, but if anyone else took the exam id be interested to see what you did? x x
