Sea love by mariiiis-dolls Sea love by mariiiis-dolls
She's waiting for her love, holding a letter in her hands....

She took me quite long, but I'm not really happy about the hair. It's ok, but could be done better. The dress out of rainbow waves was a new way of shading (at least for me). I tried it, because I had no other idea how to shade this kind of 'dress'. The background is supposed to look more simple, because I wanted the doll to be the main part in this piece.

Any CC is welcome, I'll try to use for my future works.

Base is by Nimiaka [link]
Colors used: around 45

Originally started for her contest, which is of course over since many months.....

This is so beautiful. I love it so much. I wish there was a wallpaper version of this, it's just so gorgeous. It's like all the beauty of summer wrapped up into a 45-color pixel delight. <3

The dress is beautiful--the highlights and shadows in the hair are very detailed, and I love the way you highlighted the sun and island in the background.

Well, I've become an excellent lurker here on deviantart, but I really must comment this doll. The dress came out very well! You should use this new way of shading more often, I think you would do some very interesting things! What about making a doll entirely shaded in this way? :) That dress makes me think about My Little Pony tails and so I was picturing in my mind a doll inspired by them with the hair shaded in this way! *_* But well, maybe I'm just blabbing XD Great job, as always! ;)

Thank you :)! Indeed it was inspired by my little pony - I had no idea how to shade the dress, and stumbled over a picture of MLP *ding* and I had known how I wanted to shade it. Hair with this style could be very interesting, too :) I will keep in mind!
