Base

A base is a template for all artists here on DeviantArt that is usually there for people to doll on ( draw characters on them ). Most of them are plain for people to depend where the lighting is since most Base Makers draw the lighting for them. Some people prefer to use Microsoft Paint or Photoshop to draw over the base as well as using any other program of their choice. Others will use the base has a reference and may draw characters over the base in traditional art.


Credit

Credit is very important when making a base. Especially here on DeviantART. Credit is what makes sure you did not trace or claim the base as your own. If you forgot the Original Image to your base, most people would try and help out into finding the picture for you. However, many base users find it a problem if the base maker constantly uses an excuse saying 'they cannot find it anywhere'. Surely, soon enough you will be able to find your original image somewhere.


Frankendolling

Frankendolling ( or Frankendoodling ) comes from the word ( or popular 'monster' ) Frankenstein. The purpose why it is called Frankendolling is because the Base User uses different parts of other bases in order to make a doll / finished product. One of the reasons people might Frakendoll is because the base itself has a slightly altered anatomy ( most users will do their best in 'recreating' the body ). However most Base Users find it easier ( if they don't have a lot of knowledge of the human anatomy ) to just use other parts of other bases. Most base makers will not allow this because most Frankendollers don't give full credit to all of the base makers. The number one rule of Frankendolling is to give credit to all base makers.

My Base Work

My base work is usually done with the original picture's color palette. I use Microsoft Paint in order to select each individual color.

When unsatisfied with my base work, I tend to use the shading of either skin palette to create a blush-like texture. The texture usually forms a lattice-like structure starting with the darkest shading and then gets lighter when using the lighter shading. The lightest shading usually is almost to the same color as the default skin color so it looks like the blush 'faded' out.

To touch up things, I use the white color in Microsoft Paint to make the blush look revealing. So I pick the brush tool and pick the smallest square brush and add a white highlight to the blush.




Don't worry about your request being late.

A journal simply to inform others on how to request since I've been getting quite of a lot of messages regarding so.

Requesting
This requires no special or different way as any other base-makers do it. Just simply request and send an image that works for me! Take notice that you must send the request in a note. Please be specific if the image involves any items or features among the character. If this applies to your request, please notify me if you want it fully colored or optional. I will use default colors for the items and features. And if you want the skin tone to be like the original or have my custom set skin tone, please tell me!

Size
I've made my bases quite a usable size however if you wish to alter this, you may in your request. If you want a wallpaper-sized image to be cropped smaller, that is completely fine! If you request a small icon picture, I'll make arrangements in which to maybe size it to a usable size.

Gifs
If the image is a gif and you want it to turn into a base, I will try my best to catch all the frames. If the gif is too long, I will sadly decline the request.

Original Artist
If I happen to take notice that the original image belongs to someone here on DeviantART and you did not ask for permission or had no knowledge of it, I will quickly inform the original artist about this. If unwanted, I will sadly take down the base with the original artist's decision. If wanted, the base will still be up. Japanese Artists who share an account on pixiv and DeviantART also apply to this as well.

And I apologize to those requests I haven't got to. I've been very hectic about work and I'm still trying to operate Windows 7's Paint on my new computer! ♥

Hi there darlin! <3
I once read that you didn't know good groups to submit your bases into, mind if I reccommend 2 groups?
#TruePixelDollers & #FinePixelDolls
