function of Ms Paint. I do not show you the palletes used here but you can

First of all we are going to
draw the outline of the dress. Starting with the top first. Remember that
dresses usually have tight tops. so here i have a drawn a dress following
the outline of the base. Just draw the top up above the legs. Stop the
outline somewhere at the waist. Best Done at maximum zoom
Now for the outline of the
skirt. Just draw four flare lines like that. Best done at 2 times zoom.
don't worry about the mess. To get a better flare just practice over and
over until you think its perfect. ctrl+z would re-do things (only 3 times)
Now we are going to draw the
folds to the skirt. just draw a tilted "s" shape while for the middle part
just draw a very err... curly "U" :P This would represent the folds to the
skirt. best done at 6 times zoom.
Now we are going to draw the
underside...from the curly side of the dress (fold) and just draw it
inward. best done at maximum zoom.
Now its time you clear all the
mess. All lines must be single pixel, they look nicer that
Now fill in the dress with a
colour that is slightly lighter than the outline. Just fill it in
including the underside of the dress :D
Now we are going to shade the
top. Do it over and making sure the colour gets lighter. In the last frame
you'll see that the lightest colour is not shaded everywhere, it is shaded
on the chest and the tummy only.
Now we are shading the skirt.
This would get a little tricky. You'll see that you should not touch the
side of the outline in the middle. than shade another lighter colour. The
lightes colour should be exactly be in the middle as one line down. (check
the circled reds to see what i mean. i am not good a describing :p)
Your doll would look like this
now...a little too plain, so we are adding details.
Here you can see how the
details are placed at and coloured. i used gold. always have the lighter
colour on the top of the fold. (you can use the skirt shading as a guide
to know which details should be light or dark.)
This is the making of the
special HAIR technique :P
1) Draw the hair outline and then fill it
with a slightly lighter colour than the outline.
2) take another
lighter colour and shade it in.
3) this the tricky part, you are going
to shade over the outline so that it'll give the real hair effect. ONLY SHADE OVER THE DArkest COLOUR but Not All of
4) then continues shading in...with another lighter
5) Take the lightest colour and just draw squiggly lines.
This'll give the SHINY effect :D That's it.
