Ghana formal by phoenix1784 Ghana formal by phoenix1784
Yay :eager:

This was done for round 3 of mdi. I'm really proud of her. The dress was hell, and very little was easy about this doll, but she turned out alright.

Oddly, for mdi I did three very different patterns with entirely different techniques. This one was the hardest, but turned out the best. Color count is off the charts.

Special thanks to marly for inverting the colors so she looked decent, and for bree for putting up with my crap/laziness/ and general bitchery.

base is my own

ps: my gem is tiger eye << thanks to odyrah on that one, she would've been a lame diamond.

That skirt would have took ages to make! Nice job :) I sort of have a soft spot towards Ghana because my grandparents worked there for quite a few years

Must...stare...at...amazing...shading. That skirt is blowing my mind. Was that all pixel-shaded?

That's truly amazing. I don't know how you stayed sane. My hands and eyes hurt just thinking about it.

I LOVE the shading technique on the skirt! FANTASTIC!!!! The whole doll is delicious, but I've never seen a skirt shaded like that before.
