Miss PNG by ninique Miss PNG by ninique
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.

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. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

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.

the fur lining you did is magnificent. and that transition from legs to the trim is my favorite part.
