Custom monster high

hello again :) 
i have just finished my latest custom monster high doll and it made me think how much my customs have improved since i first began creating them.
so here is my monster high custom journey:
this is a rather informal post as i don't  have anywhere to take photos at the moment because my room is being redecorated and its late at night and I just felt like writing a blog post.

this is my latest custom:

and this is my first doll : /
She is kind of ... well... not very good, BUT everyone has to start somewhere right?
when i fist made her i was so proud of her and i used her as my avatar photo all my accounts, now i just cringe XD
BUT as i said before we all have to start somewhere :)

this was my second custom, much better than my first but still not the best.
i guess shes beautiful in a kind of impressionistic way, but the lines are wobbly and the paint is way too thick. 

here is my third custom, i dont know what i was thinking with those freckles they look like dirt ! :}
the lines are much cleaner this time though :)

now here i kinda had a change of style, a vast improvement on the other three.
but i feel like the face is very flat and two dimensional, she just doesn't have the "life" like the others. 

now on to one of my favorites :)
i went back to the old style and i this time i had learned to thin my paint properly so no thick paint and i had much better control of my lines :)

next up is my unicorn girl:

Im not crazy about her face as i think she looks a bit wall eyed 8}
however im really happy with the eye shadow and lips. As you can tell the liens are a lot smoother however they are still too thick

i also modded this doll to have horse hooves :)
im quite pleased with how these turned out.

and now here is my most recent custom :)

im quite pleased with her as the lines are nice and smooth and she has so much character!

here she is with my first ever custom, you wouldn't be able to tell they were by the the same person unless i had told you! 

you can even see the improvement next to a more recent one :)

anyway the whole point of this post is to say 
by practicing you can improve so much <3
im still no expert and i can improve so much more if i just keep practicing
i really want to start doing repaints with water colour pencils but sealant that works on dolls is really hard to find and expensive where i live :(
i will keep this blog updated with my ongoing customization journey :)
