Graphic Request

A friend of mine, Tania (cooldeer123) asked me to make a header for her blog, and I gladly accepted the offer. I haven't done headers for other persons before so I was kind of scared because many people would visit her blog and the first thing popping up is the header. I kept asking my self: What if it's not good enough? What if people don't like it? But then I started making the graphic. At first I thought it's going to be a fail and I should quit before it's too late. But then I decided to make a blazer instead of a dress and in my opinion, it turned out gorgeous. Plus Tania's medoll is gorgeous.


To be honest, I think this is the best graphic I have ever made. I simply love the blazer shading. The skin shading is alright too, even though I could've worked better on it. Oh and I almost forgot: this graphic is a SPOILER. If you come to think of it, you can see the model holding a magazine. It's my FAME Magazine and that was going to be the cover of the Fall/Winter Issue. I'm not sure I'll publish it though.

The hair is not stardoll-based, as usually because I just can learn that technique D: But I believe it turned out really well (in my opinion). The little purse/clutch (whatever that is) she is holding looks simple but realistic.

"Elegance is refusal" are Coco Chanel's sayings. I saw it on Tania's blog and decided to include it in the banner. But this is not how the full header looks. This is just a banner, much more like a preview of the header.

I would really appreciate feedback, constructive critz and your opinions :)

  1. i LOVE the clutch! the shading is near perfection! the jacket shading is a tad too dark, but it works because of the dark background. i'm not a fan of the hair, but it's still pretty nice :))

  3. I love it! Seriously! I am dieing for that jacket technique! You are very good at graphics :) I think you should, though, find a not so blurry hair technique! i still like it, but it needs to look more.. like stardoll :) But i very much love this, it's one of the best one's i've seen you do! Great Job! And keep up this and you be great!

  4. Gosh I love her medoll! I thought it was clever to use your magazine as something she's holding. The shading is pretty good, but I'm still not feeling the hair. Its probably just me and that's not the way I do my hair, but idk.

  5. I really really love this, It's your best graphic by far, the only thing i don't like is the hair, I just really hate your hair technique, if you could make your hairs more stardoll-like, you would be amazing!
