She was made for Miss Doll Zodiac (doll pageant). We had to create the doll based on the symbols associated with the zodiac sign.

Mine was Pisces, but I was really uninspired this round. At the end I just picked fishes to do, nothing too creative or anything. I ended up using kois, so now it doesn't really look like the cookie cutter pisces dolls.

Honestly... I don't really like her O_O -bawls- I just wanna shove her somewhere and never see her again. It's such a messy piece of work that I rushed through. I liked the kois and dress alone, but putting them together seems a little too much.

Oh weeelllls....

Hahaha (I love you XD), you make the entire cc sound super friendly and relatable which is something not many people are able to do. I'm not sure if that makes sense O_O

I do agree with the purple thing, to be honest I wasn't really sure why I put it in there in the first place. I think I was just "omgwtf" I just wanna finish this... it's suppose to be amethyst though, the birthstone of a pisces.

Your CC definitely points out to all the thing I hate about this doll. The splodges on the dress was something I was worried about, because it might look decent on a koi, but probably not gonna look as good on a dress. When I finished shading the dress, it actually looked decent to me -- so I decided to keep it.

Then I added in the kois and I went AH what was I thinking?! It's one of those works you really wonder what went through your mind. The hair is a tad bit too dark and I think the shading on it is so wrong in so many aspects. It's rough rather than smooth, making a formal looking hairstyle look rather rigid and so-not elegant.

I think it's more of just rushing through and trying to get the doll over and done with more than anything else. Sooo.... I'll definitely rework this and get something better churned out.

I'm having some other ideas about this concept; a way to incorporate the amethyst, the kois and probably not a dress this time round (maybe) and all the koi colors on her. I'll tinker around with it and whenever I actually re-make this, I'm hoping I can look back and kick this doll in the butt-y.

I do love the Koi idea, and I think you pixelled them stunningly.

I however can't stand that koi splodge on her dress. Compositionally it takes away from the shape the koi are making. If you wanted to use the koi colour on the dress it should have been an accent like a sash or a trimming, not a splodge I think, other than that the white dress is gorgeous.

Her hair is cute, but unfortunately because here is a white background we lose all definition of the hair because it's dark hair. I would say that your white dress appears to be very contrasty yet the hair doesn't have that same pop out at you factor but it may do on a darker background...

Lastly, wtf is up with the purple stuff in her hands.. it kinda sticks out the composition like a sore thumb.

Having nitpicked away though Overall I think she's a very nice high quality doll with a good concept and approach to Pisces.

I think what might be messing you up is that the hair is darkdarkdark and really way more saturated than the rest of the doll, which is really quite lovely. Maybe go back and tinker with the hair a bit?

otherwise, I don't see why you dislike her; I love her! it's a really original view of Pisces.

Yes! I think the hair really bothered me because I didn't know what style to do it in? I ended up really rushing through this entry which is one thing I hate to do...

I'll definitely tinker this doll again, remake it completely and redesign her because I do like the concept :) thank you for your nice words and help, I'm glad you thought she was original :)

Helloo fellow pisces friend! Hee... I wanted a different approach to pisces as well, I always see them portrayed as blue mermaids or with blue fishes, those are definitely more accurate, but lacks a unique feel to it...

Thank you for your lovely compliment, I'm glad someone gets the idea of the kois XD

Aw, I think she's really cute. The hair might be a little heavy, but it doesn't take away from the cute factor, IMO.

That's honestly pretty cute! I'm surprised that you don't like it.

I like the elements all separately haha -- like I do like the dress (a lot of experimental shading there) and the koi are satisfactory... the hair I hate hate hate, but I just think putting all that together messes each individual element :(

Thank you though :)

Well, the hair does seem a not quite to par with the rest of your doll, honestly. But I wouldn't call it bad. But yeah- I can see how it might not all go together smoothly. It's very well done, though. And not "bad" by a longshot.

Damn, now I'm rambling. SO TIRED. I think it's sleeptime for me.

Heh, I hope you had a good sleep :)
Thank you though, I think I would definitely rework this because I did like the concept of using kois rather than usual blue fishes heh.

Maybe on a different base and definitely with better hair!
