edit: okay thanks to DetectiveMel's advice to add a single pixel of greyish white in the corner of her right eye, and to some more tweaking of lashes, liner, and lips, i think i've finally got the face together.  YAY thanks! it's an xmas doll btw. :P

i'm dolling!! right now :o  i'm having serious issues with the face and since i don't really go to any dolling forums (should probably rectify that someday) i figured this was the best way.

someone tell me what's wrong with this face DX.  i've rearranged it like five thousand times and each time i take a break and come back i want to fiddle with it more rather than get on with rest of it.  'kay here it is...

updated:

i can't figure it out but something's bugging me.  oh sorry it's so small but i don't wanna give any away XD.

also i started an account at pixistar here.  though there's some glitch that now refuses to let me upload anymore bases.  of course this happens right when i'm about to start uploading my new way better bases :/

in other news we had an xmas party here last saturday.  that's now the fourth party we've had since we moved in in september XD.  this is such an animal house.  i wore a mini string of portable xmas lights!! it was awesome fun haha.  however december is just as good at keeping me going out too much and broke as november was.  what's with EVERONE i know being born at the end of the year :/

how's everyone's holiday so far?? none of my family live in toronto anymore so i'm going to my room mate christian's family's house for xmas.  should be pretty fun we're going to pretty much party the whole time XD.  oh please help with the face i'm desperate :o

Can't wait to see it finished! Hopefully I'll get around to actually finishing a doll soon :lol:

DO IT! i really have missed doing it but i set the bar so high everytime i attempt it so that it takes me bloody forever to finish one XD.

Maybe it's the right eye (her left). Her right eye is looking up and slightly to the right, her left eye is looking right, but not 'up' enough... if that makes sense? I can't explain myself. She just needs a white/grey pixel or two on her left eye, around the tear ducts. Kind of like so: [link] Does that look a little better?

Otherwise I don't know - I really like her. She's cute as a button.

Christmas! Well I am working so I haven't been able to get home. Looks like I won't either, so I too am going to crash a friend's Christmas because home is too far away!

omg i love you XDDD!! i went back to the face after i posted this and it looked better but the eyes were still bugging me. after reading your post i put one bloody pixel in and it changed everything :lmao: isn't that the way it is? thaaaaaaaank you!! sometimes eye direction can be such a bitch especially in 3/4 view :o

haha yay us xmas crashers!! i'm looking forward to it actually apparently my roomie's parents are buying me gifts. i wish they wouldn't since i'm so broke but i think it's all in good fun for them heh. i'm bringing wine and xmas crackers for all!
DetectiveMel's avatar
Yeah, I know. It tends to take somebody else to look at it as well, especially when you have been staring at it for ages yourself.

Hah, dolling can be so precise!

ugh i totally stare and obsess too long. i should post here for critiques more often XD!

Awesome! Glad to see you dolling again! I've always really liked your works!

Hopefully that glitch at PixiStar is fixed soon!
FoxyRepublic's avatar
thank you :D it's nice/surprising to know people even still remember me i've been "dead" for so long XD

i really hope pixistar fixes up soon that site is amazing and totally not what i was expecting :o very impressed by it! :D

You were pretty well known back when I was really into dolling, so it makes sense to me that people would know who you are. You always kind of seemed like one of those unreachable "cool" kids, even. Oh the good old days... it makes me nostalgic to remember them.

Pixistar is very impressive. I hope it continues to grow. I remember (and really liked) the Italian Dollzine base search engine, and pixistar seems even better. >_> I especially like the edit posting feature. That's just neat.

yeah it wasn't really a cool thing as it was a sort of a hermit in one spot/sporadic interest thing haha. like i was only really able to be active in one forum at a time on top of the website and real life. ah well i really do miss the good old days :( i think maybe if i just joined a forum it would help the isolated wanderer feeling i've been having the past few years online.

i think pixistar reminds me alot of DA actually with the faving and comment system and stuff. it's like a mini doller's DA which i love. the little awards are cute too though i feel like such a nerd getting happy over a new plateau. i liked the italian dollzine too but i think pixistar is much better. once the kinks are worked out it'll kick ass DX!

There are some good forums out there. Like Glam, that place is decent. And if you wait awhile me and Duckie are planning to open a forum.

I'm actually sad because I've kind of run out of new awards to win. XD I'm still like... the only one with the 25 bases award. I'm an upload whore.
FoxyRepublic's avatar
oh i'll definitely keep a look out for yours and duckie's heh. as long as it's chill i'm sure i'll like it. i'm weary of super popular forums 'cause i'll just feel like lost in it. though if i join anything at this point it'll probably be that one or PP.

Yeah. I kind of miss the close-nit, laid back forums of the old days.

PP is nice, though I don't visit there are regularly as I used too. I ought to drop by there again sometime!
