Ahhh!! She's so cute!! Did you use a limited palette, or do I need to sleep because it's 4am? I love her eyebrows and her makeup/eye shading and her hair of course!

Oh my goshhh, please make a tutorial because I seriously have a sketch right now for braids on a doll and have no idea what I'm going to do now. XD

But honestly this looks so beautiful! the way you made the bun is just so good.

hahaha okay here it is verbally: draw the path of each braid using a thicker line weight and curved line tool. pick whichever way the light would hit it and do a 1px-2px line of the darkest shade. do a lil AA-ing along the other ledge. do some random lines going accross each side. use a high contrast highlight to do small L or V shaped/ diagonal highlights on the lighter side of the braid. add a lil more highlight where needed. taaadaaaaaa! 

once the shape of the braids is there, it's a really easy technique if you have the colors laid out right :) 

you are so sweet, though!! i appreciate it, lovely! :)

You should be happy with those braids! I mentioned this on Glam! but there is a very real feeling of gravity affecting her hair. Also despite the individual lights and shadows on each braid, the overall form is not lost. This is so cool. It must have taken ages

i think i might make a lil tutorial on how to do the braids because honestly they did not take that long at all. like, shaping the braids did, but i just draw the path of each braid with the curved line tool on a thick setting, sorta drew an edge for each one, sectioned it and used small highlights to make it look like detail. the braids are only four colors and i normally use 5-7 colors for hair!! 

thank you again!! :D
