Ulap by LadyHazy Ulap by LadyHazy
Ulap, an Air Fairy for ~StarGirlArt's Fairy Pageant.
Baseless.
---
So apparently, I'm following `Pyrochan-dolls' trend of creating awesome fairy dolls with something immaterial for clothing.

I wanted to work on the idea of sylphs, fairies of air usually depicted with cirrus clouds for wings. I also wanted to depart just a little from the image of a tall-ish, pale fairy with long blond hair.

So here she is. Enjoy! :)

P.S. to the curious, her name means 'cloud' in my language.

I love the little rainbow. Her hair is so pretty and the colors in her wings are lovely!

This is your fault, though. Your awesomeness is contagious. Since you came up with THAT doll, the dolling community has not been at rest. xD

Thank you! That compliment means so much! :D

Thanks! lol.

I've actually attempted several over the past few years. I even released a base - was it last year? - for a kiss doll I never finished. :P Hopefully I'll get over my slight ADHD long enough to sit through making just one doll. xD

You stole my idea. :ohnoes: Well, my idea is a bit different, but it involves clouds. I guess great minds think alike eh? :D

Seriously though, I love her, her colors especially are so bright and cheerful, I love how you shaded her dress and wings. Your coloring skills always impress me. :love:

It took me aaages to get the right color scheme. I think I sent you one of my trashed WIPs in the mail? I hated the colors on that one and had to change STAT. Funny enough, my own doll reminds me of [link] . :<
Thanks!

LOL! Is that one of those old troll dolls??? Seeing that makes me feel so old. D: I used to have a handful of those, but mine always had the little gems on their bellies. :giggle: I don't think it looks like them though. Well, maybe a little! Perhaps it's the hair! XD Yours is definitely cuter.

You're welcome! :huggle:

Once I saw one of those evil things in my own doll, I couldn't unsee. :paranoid:

Evil things, haha, troll dolls are kinda evil looking. A bit strange. Hah. I admit it was the jeweled bellies that got me interested in them. XD Anything remotely sparkly and shiny will get me to buy it. I'm such a sucker. :P Now I look back at them and shudder to think they were so popular. I remember everyone had them. You weren't considered cool if you didn't have one. Gotta love the 80s. :facepalm:

o.0 Furby? I don't think I've ever heard of that one. But I just googled it. And. Dear. God. :faint:

I love your colour schemes! It's difficult to tell her skin is pixelled, it looks so smooth and so much like how skin should really look. I particularly like her neck and chest area and her face. Also the shades of blue/purple are just perfect. Good luck with the pageant.

Thank you so much! I must admit I take my time to pixel skin. It's my favorite thing the paint. xD

It shows. I really like seeing how many wild colours you use in your dolls and how smooth everything looks when it's finished. I often wonder why I watch people with styles so different from mine and I guess it's just because artists like you do the kind of things I cannot, like pixelling and mastering colour. That's another reason for watching you, so I can learn from the best.

LadyHazy Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Aww, that's very flattering. xD
But I suppose there's the same reason why I like to watch a wide range of artists too. Aside from oogling at art, of course, there's so much to learn! Admittedly, though, my wild color inspiration is mostly `loish. Can't get enough of her funky, retro-ish art!

zapatones Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012
I see. Well I guess my main inspiration was Pyrochan (mine and almost every doller's inspiration, really) After seeing her full doll tutorial I realised I was limiting too much my skills and tried to go for something else. Add my dad's advice on adding black and white and that's how my style was born. I will always envy *tracyjb's and *tattereddreams's style, they're very different from each other, but both are equally inspiring.

Pyrochan, definitely! Her level of skill and concept is something all dollers aspire to. :D
The stark contrast in your shading makes your dolls look very dramatic and very unique. Not many dollers go for that.
Incidentally, I'm a huge fan of those two artists too! I actually have a huge list of artists who inspire me. It would take forever to go through the all. xD

Nice ! I like the iridescent/rainbow scarf and the contrast between her dark skin and the light turquoise blue you used... However, I think some parts of the dress are a little too sketchy or not smooth enough...
Anyway, she's gorgeous ! :D I'm looking forward to finishing my own entry now XD

Now that I look closer, you're right. I don't quite like the front of it as much as the back. Thanks for telling me.

Yay! I'm excited to see what you come up with! All the entries have been exciting so far. :D

Nimiaka Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Professional Artist
Well, it's beautiful, but it doesn't fit with the rest of the doll, it gives the impression of 2 different shading styles...

My entry is finiiish yay ! XD But I'm not even able to hold a candle to you or Pyrochan or Phriwian... :p but whatever, it was fun ^^.

I was going for different textures, but I guess it's not working out as well as planned. xD I might get back to her soon, though. I wanted to add a background, but I just wanted to finish her for now.

lol, don't say that! Your doll is gorgeous! :D I don't envy Megan Clare for all the awesome entries she has to judge!

Uuurg I HATE doing backgrounds so I won't push you to make one ! XD

Thank you ! I'm proud of my entry, yet I know it's not as good as yours :p But I keep improving so one day it won't be a problem anymore XD

I kind of envy Megan in fact, because it's always very exciting when you organize a contest and you receive great entries...

Not really. It's excellent, well thought of and well executed. With all the amazing dolls in the contest, including yours, I can't be sure I'm even going to place. But that's the fun of contests! :D

Yes, getting great entries is always awesome... Until you have to get to the part where you pick a winner. Because mind you, different dolls are awesome in different ways. In my experience, judging for MDI, it's always frustrating to have to rank dolls as "better" than others when they're really all so good.
