We decided to make Hatsune Miku!
I would recommend opening both skins in a new tab before you decide which is better.
As always, vote for which skin you like better and not who made it.

PaperDragon1- ... sune-miku/

I had trouble distinguish what was what in Sophie's, and despite the better shading technique, this problem cannot go overlooked.

Paper had a far better head, but the uniform and skin needed to use the same shading style, or the other way around. Inconsistent. However, I can clearly tell what it is, and can distinguish the different parts of Miku much better than I could with Sophie's.

I want to be completely honest with you two. I think you're both extremely talented skin makers! And both of the skins are utterly beautiful. I think PaperDragon1's body technique looks better, I think she nailed the bangs, and she made the pigtails look thin and realistic to the picture. But I think sophie's hair shading technique is gorgeous, I can't stop looking at it. And I think sophie's shading was more advanced and better hue-shifted. Although I think PaperDragon1's skin looks more petite, and looks more like Hatsune Miku. Sophie's is more detailed. And PaperDragon1 lacks shading. Overall both of them are gorgeous!! Keep up the amazing work you two!

Thank you for the feedback! I guess that will be what I work on now-my shading. It seems to be my main flaw in my skins (though not the only). Shading has never been my strong point in any of my artwork. I will work on fixing this.

Paper's was a lot more vivid, which caught my eye.
Sophie's had a lot of detail in it.

PaperDragon - Colors are solid and the shading is simple.
Sophiepanda - The shading is very very good. The skin looks blurry. You used different saturation for the body and the hair? and you forgot the headphones .-. XD

I vote for SophiePanda
Update the skin when the contest is done? XD

Very simple Shading-
Nice technique with the hair-
Nice details in hair and body-
OVer all nice and simple and looking good at the same time-

Very nice shading but it kinda
looks like all the clothes and
hair stuff are the same-
Very awesome hair idea-
Does not include details
in hair-
VERY VERY nice and
kinda too HD shading,
but it turned out as a
nice skin-


Both skins have nice
techniques, but the
shading in both
kinda failed in the end,
Both skins look
like Miku from
the anime, BUT

Thanks for the feedback! (also I don't think vocaloid is an anime, though I'm not sure what to describe it as cx)

A clear, bold model that's very concise and easy to see what it is.

Literally everything. That shading is too pretty for me. <3

Paper got a simple design that makes it easy to see who it is.

Sophie's has a good amount of detail, sadly it seems to me that her hair is one with the body.


My vote goes to Paper for making a simple design that still looks good

Thank you for the feedback! I guess the reason the hair looks the same as her shirt is because I made the grey palette for the shirt quite saturated, while I made the hair palette fairly desaturated.

2D Picture-PaperDragon
3D Model- PaperDragon
Backstory- --
Colors- PaperDragon
Shading- Sophie
Use of new layer- Sophie
Technique- PaperDragon

Overall- PaperDragon

PaperDragon-Shading is a bit stiff. Colors are solid. Very clear skin. Boots are nice. Hair could be better. Utilize the 1.8 layer.
Sophie-Shaded too hard: Looks blurry. As if the model jumped while someone was taking a picture. Colors are a bit faded, the source image is very vibrant.
