Base Tutorial by wish04 Base Tutorial by wish04
IMAGE SIZE IT BIG! So it may take awhile for it to load for some people.

I just want to say don't use the base at the end of the tutorial to make a doll just yet. I'm going to be making more poses for it, so please be patient. The base will be released when the set is finished.

So here's the base tutorial :D
I know that in the poll, base tutorial came in second place but I thought that it would be a good idea to at least know how to make a tutorial first since I never made one before, so I used base tut. as a practice.

I don't know how I'm going to create a tutorial for a whole doll or if I'm ever going to get around to it. Someday...just someday I might.

But for now, your going to have to settle with the base tutorial.

Anyways, I hope that this tutorial at least helps out when creating bases. The layout of the tutorial is kind of plain and simple, but it's the information that is the most important ;)

Tell me if you spot any problems with the tutorial or give me some C/C please :)

Personally, whenever I make a base, I always leave the face blank, to make it customizable for the one who is using it.

This is really lovely and helpful... I keep forgetting that I need to probably learn more about anatomy (more than the nothing I know now) before trying to create bases. ^^; But I love being able to look at a base zoomed-in like this and see all the details, to help me out with my own shading and anatomy.

I LOVE IT!!! Very detailed but not too confusing. A simple technique that turns out GREAT if used correctly. Even beginners like me might be able to make a decent base with this. :)

I also appreciate that this isn't one of those traced base tutorials--there are way too many of those going around. I hate how people support traced bases. :\

Anyways, all in all, a great tutorial. :D Can't wait to make my first base!!
