When I created the original set of four bases in 2003, I termed them 'Lackadaisy' because each pose looked rather calm/lax. Very quickly I came to dislike these bases and decided not to post them when I switched over my gallery.

However, I've received several requests to include them over the last couple of months and knew that the only way I'd get around to it would be to update the poses. So here they are- the originals for those who prefer them and the new poses that I prefer. ;)

o mai when i saw the title i went "BASES FOR LACKADAISY?!?!?! NO WAY!" because i thought you meant the comic lackadaisy. They still look good though
dilli-dalli's avatar
Haha! I've had several people complain that they look nothing like the Lackadaisy cats and that I should study Tracy's art a little more closely and redo the bases... LOL!

Sorry they're not the bases you were hoping for- but I do appreciate the kind comments! Thank you! :hug:

why do you have such an odd restriction on the base? one would think you'd be more flexible by virtue of location

Sorry! This reply is terribly late but I've been away from my account for several months and am just now getting caught up with my inbox messages... ^^'

"why do you have such an odd restriction on the base? one would think you'd be more flexible by virtue of location"

I'm not sure which restriction you feel is odd. These are the same rules I've alway used for my bases, starting when they were originally housed on my personal website, so I don't really feel that a change of location should change their meaning or useage. Moreover, they are pretty typical of traditional pixel-base terms of use (as they basically imply 'no frankendolling').

In any case, thank you for looking! :)

the inability to edit the base(add remove or alter the lines) it is normal on personal sites but places like here it can be edited(something i personally like because not ever doll can be made to conform exactly to the base used) or at least the vast majority of the time

sorry if i bothered you though by saying^^:

and not a problem, it is a very pretty base

Thanks for clarifying! I was just a bit confused. :)

How do you make these look so good? I mean, do you have a program you use or is it just skill?? :)
dilli-dalli's avatar
Awww! Thank you! :heart:

The program I use for my pixeling is MSPaint with a simple mouse for drawing. More than latent skills or fancy programs, I believe it's practice that makes anything successful. I've been creating bases since 2003 and my current stuff is WAY better than it was just a year ago, much less seven years ago.

There's always room for improvement and it usually just comes down to repetition... :)

Thank you again!

There are toes!!! I just love how the toes curl over on the upturned foot, I think that small detail just really adds to the charm of the pose and the base set as a whole... along with the pretty little fingers. I love small details and easy following movements and you've definitely captured it. I don't know how you do it but it amazes me every time I see your bases. :heart:

Thank you so much for reassuring me about the toes on that foot; I wasn't sure if they looked right so I totally appreciate the feedback! Now I feel more at ease... :heart: :hug:
