Sorry if you receive a duplicate alert on this-- I'm having issues with the journal utility, today.  Hopefully the third time's a charm...

I recently created a paperdoll spread that is featured in this month's issue of Doll Collector Magazine.  The reason I'm mentioning it here is because I wanted to share a potential opportunity with you guys.

You see, my paperdoll was based on my Snail Princess pixeldoll of a few years ago.  I always liked the basic design and, when I found out that Doll Collector takes paperdoll submissions, I decided to recreate it and design a few more outfits for her.

If any of you are interested in trying your hand at paperdolls, please check out the submission guidelines at Doll Collector (you can also browse the Round Up Themes in the sidebar for future content ideas).

They're constantly looking for new work (of all genres), they pay $50.00 for accepted submissions, and all copyrights revert back to the artist after the spread has been published.  But please be aware that they want unpublished material-- so don't post your finished work online unless you okay it with them first (or you may inadvertently breach your contract).

The pixeling community is one of the most creative groups of people I've ever met so I hope at least a few of you take up this challenge-- I'd love to see your dolls in print, soon! :)

Your bases make me wish I knew how to do skintones...I really like all of them and want to use them, but alas! I have no skills to make them more than an outline....If you ever decide to add skintones, give me a hollar! P.S. your work is amazing.

Thank you so much for the kind feedback- you're so sweet! :hug:

I actually used to offer bases that had skintones but shading/highlighting skin is one of my worst obstacles when it comes to pixeling and I found that other dollers were actually going out of their way to remove and redo the tones I had created for the bases.

Instead, I decided to remove the skintones altogether. This way experienced dollers can create their own palettes without having to spend a lot of time eliminating my inferior toning. I know it may seem unfair for those who struggle with skintones but, struggling myself, I see lineart bases as a good method for practicing weak skills and making them stronger. :)

So, no, I won't be adding skintones but I do encourage you to keep practicing and learning new techniques for making your own! It can be a slow process but it's so worth it! ^_^

Thanks again! :heart:

Did you switch accounts and leave me at ~dillian wondering where you went for the longest time? Cx
dilli-dalli Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010
Hey! :dance:

Sorry for being gone so long- I meant for it to be about two weeks and it's turned into months! I’ve got two accounts; one for pixel work and one for fanart (unfortunately, I’ve been neglecting them both…).

I’m trying to get my inboxes cleared up before New Year’s and start 2011 with a more organized approach but I’ve been absent for a long while so tackling my messages is kind of intimidating… but I will prevail! ;)

In any case, I’m glad to hear from you! I’ll send you a note with a little more catch-up info. :)
