This was mainly a shading test. I was trying for something a little less blocky. 

But anyway, announcements. 
November is nearly here again. That means National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). That means I will have no life for thirty days while I try to write an entire novel in one single month. I did it last year; it was crazy fun, although that A New Civilization story on the forums took up most of my time. (Long story.)
Anyway, I mean to say, I'm going to be sort of inactive for a little while on account of my creative attentions turning to writing. I'm probably going to enter the Halloween contest and then go on a hiatus until NaNoWriMo ends. 

As I said previously, this was a shading test as well, so feedback is appreciated!

If you aren't being sarcastic, well thanks.  If you are being sarcastic, I agree with your unstated statement, this is the most unoriginal skin I've ever made.  I made the clothes as un-detailed as I could manage so I could get a shading template down without cluttering it with unneccesary bits and pieces.

Oh my gosh! That sounds really, really stressful. (But if your writing on here is a sample... goodness knows you can get a novel written in a month!) Good luck (do you need it... you have talent on your side...)?

And the shading on this is fabulous- I love the hair. I'm not a big fan of the eyes; they look a bit wide to me, but that's just my opinion!

Oh, it's not stressful at all :D rather it's like a massive month-long video game marathon, except at the end you have a book instead of a really high-level geared-up character!  I'm homeschooled so it's actually pretty easy to get around school; it's pretty much replaced with NaNoWriMo every November except for the little daily things like math and science.  

And thanks for the feedback as well!!  Maybe the long eyelashes and big irises in the eyes are mutually exclusive, lol; I'll remember that for next time.  :)

Awesome, thank you!!  It's not my final draft, haha; I'm still kinda developing this type of shading.  :p
And you totally should!  Aside from the awesomeness of speed writing, the NaNoWriMo website is so fun in and of itself xD

Ok, now time for critiquing the skin. Joy, I know. 
1. love the shading
2. hair and eyes look amazing
3. the mouth is the one thing I don't like about this skin.
Other then #3, I love it. :D

whoop yeah, announcements!!

1.  thanks, although I'm not sure about the stuff on the legs
2.  also thanks, I was surprised I managed to make the hair look decent at all xD
3.  okay, I'll keep that in mind, I admit it looks better in the preview than the game - makes her cheeks look kinda puffy.  :p

Thanks!  Believe me, the very same happens to me more times than I can count ;-;

Some strategies I use to avoid writer's block:
- Write humor; if things get to moving slow just stick in a joke.  Works for me in the books I intend to make kind of funny.  If not a joke (which mine rarely are - my characters aren't stand-up comedians) just add a sarcastic remark or thought of some kind.  That sounds like it wouldn't work well but for me at least it really does.  
- Open up a new document/page in your notebook and write whatever pops in your head.  Not only is it helpful but it's crazy fun because you end up with the weirdest stories in the WORLD at the end.  xD

Sign up on Nanowrimo.org (or ywp.nanowrimo.org if you want to do the teen program). When November starts you can give the site your word count stats as you write and if you reach your word count goal by the end of November you get 2 free copies of your published novel (or 5 if you do the young writers program like me!)

What's the count goal? Do I have to set it myself?



And I don't know if I can write a whole NOVEL in 1 month. I can try.

The default is 30,000 but you can change it if you want.  It can be as low or high as you want.  Mine was 45,000 last year (I ended up going way over, lol.)

And don't worry, I didn't think I could do it either but then I blew right through it.  :D
