Re: Dolly Girl - Can u give me some comments?

I LOVE this kind of creative thread. Thanks Irene! The best tip I can give you about projects like these is to look up plenty of references first. What makes a doll look like a doll? I looked at tons of images, then went to work, incorporating the best parts from each reference.

This kind of retouch is essentially digitally painting, and should be treated as such.

Is it starting to look like that pageant thread in here or is it just me?

Hi,

first.. I love dolls... especially the antique ones.

A good way to get that porcelain doll look is.. to use one of the plugins of Xero, they have a lovely porcelain plugin.

Succes

Hello Irene,

I just saw you reply but i also saw that the answer was already given which is ok.
Xero has some marvellous free plugins. I also would recommand, Clarity, Radiance and Skycleaner for some extra fine-tuning if that is necessary, in a project such as this.
Good luck and I am looking forward to the results.
