Miss PNG by ~ninique This DD was brought to you as a part of Project Educate. This is a wonderful example of a first round pageant entry; first rounds tend to include a portrait and a full body doll. The hair and faces on these dolls match wonderfully, the textures on the clothing are great, and the composition is nice and balanced.

Miss PNG

PNG = Papua New Guinea, for the Miss Doll International pageant [link]

This entry was. . . much of a challenge. It's not easy to put a winter coat on a doll and make her still look exotic. It's also not easy to do google research on a country that's often abbreviated as "PNG" without getting a bunch of unrelated pictures.

Also I'm still experimenting with my toolshading-that-almost-looks-like-pixelshading technique. This one is a bit more obviously toolshaded than my previous doll, especially in the legs.

Her hair is supposed to be blonde-ish, sort of like this: [link] Apparently it's quite common there to have that hair colour. It was quite hard to get right though, and I wouldn't have been able to do it if I weren't toolshading

Oh and bases are by Blood-Cocoa [link]

EDIT: I fixed the text a bit. . .I hadn't realized originally that you needed to put the year in it.

There's just so much about this that is awesome, I don't know where to begin! I love the coat, and I think you did a great job making her look like she is from PNG, even though you had to put her in winter wear. Also, I love her tattoo.

just a suggestion, maybe instead of the flower could have put a bird of paradise feather in possibly seeing as it is the national bird and it's on the flag.

her hair looks like a brillow pad and i love it.
the fur lining you did is magnificent. and that transition from legs to the trim is my favorite part.

That is an awesome coat; I feel inferior lol

I really like that hair style and colour, it's very pretty and adds a nice contrast =3
