PaperDoll Thisbe Part 1 by OhSadface PaperDoll Thisbe Part 1 by OhSadface
Ok I got a tablet for Christmas and was all like “ hey I am gonna do a digital a painting and quickly got something down to color and I ended up falling in love with the way the flats look ;_; so I am still gonna paint it, but I am also submitting the flats as a separate piece.

Since I made Thisbe a character in my Steampunk story she needs some slamin’ threads. And shit this is like my favorite color scheme! I was watching “An Ideal Husband” and one of the dresses in it was pale yellow and had the white strips and such and I was like “hmmmmm how can I make that poofy nightmare look better?” So I did and I love this outfit shut up. I have never done a cutout lookin picture before and this was not supposed to be but I like how it looks :O yeah I know that the stripes are a bit boxy I messed up and suck at it…

The finished thing will be done in another day or two.

I love her design! The colors are very fun and vintage, and fun. I can't describe things very well. D:

Oh, and I love her hat! I want a hat with a clock on it! :<

Wow, your right! If you don't shade, it's almost like a completely different picture! That's so neat! I never thought of it that way. Huh.

<3 Lovin' it to death, missy! :D

Thanks. I am actually close to NOT finish the fully shaded one D: I don't like how the skin looks D:

Oh? D;

Well, how are you shading it? Are you using black as a shade with minimal opacity to add shadow and depth?

uhhhh, all i know is the placment of the shadows are super wrong and i need to do it over D:

Think of a very strong, focal light source! And then you could always do what I do. Make up where the shadows fall! XD

Either that, or maybe try shading in darker tones of the colors you're using? Sometimes that gives you a different approach.

XP I dunno. I'm just throwing things out there to see if anything helps.
