History/Definition of Dollz

http://auburn_angel1.tripod.com/dollz/id12.html



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollz

Suzene

I think Nightfall turned out looking most like herself, but they all look pretty good. The one that's supposed to be Savah looks too young, I think.

Suzene

krwordgazer

I think they're cute! Good costuming! :)

wildfire

Quote:
Bonita

These look great (but small)! But who's the one in pink?


I think it looks like Leetah or Ruffel. Just a guess Wink These are great! Keep up the good work!

Snakesleek

Wink Kahvi looks a lot like her in-comic self. Nice work!

*waves to Nightsea*

Starbolt

Those are nice.

I've got a couple of dolls on my ElfQuest page:

ElfQuest: Moonwater Holt

The two are of Chieftess Starbolt (me) and my mate, Moonbow. The bases are from Bugtown (links are on the page.).

Apogee

Yup and you can go directly to my EQ dollz site!

I have an assortment of *original* poses, not taken from WARP images (since I didn't at the time know they would be publishing them online later) as well as portrait head shot blanks to make avatars or close ups. :)

http://www.geocities.com/abode_elf_dollz/ is the site! Enjoy! I also have a contest going, and feel free to send me links to your sites.

Nightsea

Quote:
Bonita

Could you do Newstar with her new outfit? (Maybe for my site)





The one in pink is supposed to be "young Leetah".

This is not Newstar's new outfit, but a quick rendition of her old one.
I'll try to do her new outfit, if you can supply a photo of it
(like maybe on your website? what's the URL?).

Hope you like her. I did alot of edits on her face and hair
in PSP7, but the base was from http://www.dollzmania.net/create6.htm

Credit for this, and all my EQ doll art goes
to the name "Nightsea" for putting stuff together, but to
Warp for characters, and to "melicia greenwood" for creating
Dollz (see http://www.shatteredinnocents.com/dollz/originz1.html) in the first place, as well as the makers of dollzmania
website.


*tail waves*
--NS

Mirr

Yay, more EQ dolls popping about from everywhere :)

I did find an EQ dolls page the other day and posted in a thread, which thread it was I can't remember, but here's the page again:

http://www.angelfire.com/psy/copaprika/chars.html
(scroll down a bit on the page to see the EQ divas)

I'm still hunting for elfine bases myself, and preferably the larger model, since as some of you say the small ones are cute but risk getting blurred :)

My recently started dollpage alas, I'm way behind with the rest of my personal page :D
http://biphome.spray.se/miraculum/portfolio/dolls

Arfurido

Hey! If anyone want to make a Mender-doll for my Mendersite, feel free! :D

Windwalker

Cheesecake, I love your picture. Arislan was an awesome anime. Sad they didn't finish it. :(

Nightsea

I found the image of the "new" outfit for Newstar. I did another
fast palace-sized doll. They are small because they are made
as avatars (max pixels tall or wide=133).





Mirr loved those semi-chibi like dolls you found on
that other page. They were well done, and yet again
Nightfall looks like herself most of all, I think.

As for a program for us less artistically talented types that
provides a "start" or "base" for characters, I like using the
heromachine online. I wish you could import dollz or
even the Wendy Pini outlines into that program! You
probably could get them the right size, but to get all
the clothing and accessories to fit would be a challenge.

Aw well, meanwhile I'll just keep fiddling around.
It's fun, even if the results aren't always perfect.

*waves*
--NS

Apogee

I loved those too! They're awesome!

Plus, Mirr, your dollz rawk! Very pretty!!

I just wish that Mozilla/Netscape could do all the drag and drop routines that IE can do... the script is apparently a microsoft exclusive or something weird, so now like 3/4 of the dollz sites I have bookmarked with drag and drops or doll makers won't work for me.... yarrrr.....

Making something like the Hero Machine wouldn't be that hard, but I don't have the skills (or the time) to do it. Though - if anyone does have the time and talent? Why don't we all try and contribute clothing and items for it? If there were only like 2 or 3 options for each gender (like, hefty, muscular, slender; for each male and female shape) we could make a template for their clothing and just everyone make whatever they had time to do. :D

Arfurido

A bit off-topic here guys, just had to answer a comment --

Quote:
Wind walker

Heheey! You know it! How cool! :D
I absolutely LOVE the series. Actually it has reached to a level of obsession with me where only ElfQuest had reached before! It's beautiful, genius. It's a damned shame it was never finished. Imagine the whole story done in the same style as the first part... THAT would have beaten EQ also for me! Well -- maybe just almost Wink

But anyway, back to topic Wink

Nightsea

Bonita, thanks for the kind feedback.
Feel free to take either Newstar doll (or both)
for your website. The big image, is of course,
by Wendy Pini.

Mirr's post to the other dolls was nice.
But I believe she isn't the one who made the
dolls? The site lists someone named
Paprika.

I made a Leetah doll to round out that set.
It's not as clean and neat as the others
(I used PSP7 and the smudge tool instead
of pixel by pixel in MSPaint).



If there's anyone on this bboard with the skills to make
a drag and drop or other working image program like
Heromachine for Pini-style elves, that would be an
AWESOME project! We'd all love to see it happen,
I'm sure. (Legally dunno if it'd be ok with Warp tho,
as their current rules wouldn't allow distribution of
copyrighted material of theirs--fan art would be
another issue.)

Apogee, I think you might be able to use the
online dollzmakers with JAVA enabled (downloaded)
into your Netscape browser. Go to the Netscape
home page and search for downloadable Plug-Ins.
I'm not certain they all run on java, but it's likely.
Some features only work with IE browsers, it's
true, but sometimes you can get the same results
in other software. Good luck.

I wish, of course, that I could just DRAW
what I could imagine. That'd be fabulous.
Alas, my talent for scribbling is minimal
at best. I've taken the art classes, but
still can't illustrate the humanoid figure
worth a fig. *sigh*

*waves*
--NS

Apogee

That's why we have dollz makers... To cheat! :)

Heck, it's why the Poser program is so popular. It was meant as a method to aid artists - it's wound up being a gigantic rendering phenomenon in and of itself. If you've got $ and time? You might consider getting into Poser. (poserpro.com I think is the main forum my friend visits.)

Tynami

Would you be willing to make a grown up Ember and Moonshade in her last suit?

Kat

Kagri

Hmm... well, this one isn't really a drawn doll, but it's THE best real ElfQuest doll I've even seen! The ears aren't very good, but for the rest... IMHO it's one amazing Nightfall!!! :D

http://www.dolls-n-daggers.com/Dolls/OOAKnightfall.html

Adverseria

WOW!!! I really, really, really, really want one!!! Surprised

krwordgazer

Wow! Nicest EQ doll I've ever seen. Makes the collectibles I have look cheap. She probably costs a mint!

Kagri

I don't even think it's for sale. The lady just made it for her personal collection... Sigh. Too bad! I want it too. :(

Actually she says on her site that the base for this doll was Barbie! Somehow you can just shape the limbs and the face (with the correct tools) to what YOU want, then she clears off all the original paint and re-paints it all herself... Till the desired result is achieved. So, of course, you can always try it yourself! *images how many Barbies'd go to waste if she herself tried doing it :P *

Surprised Wow, this lady have a serious talent for making real dolls! I´m gonna mail her and ask if she wanna make Ember Grin

Nightsea




Pretty pretty pretty Ember :D Can I use her on my site when it´s online again?

Nightsea

wildfire, yes you may use Ember and Winnie and any of my
dollz that you like on your website.

Same deal goes for anyone who wishes to display them...
please feel free to post them if you like, just give proper credit
(ie, WARP for characters, Nightsea for the edits, Dollzmania
for most bases and some clothing) on your site.
You can decide what's proper for your site for yourself.
Just something respectful of the copyright laws and work
reflected in the art is all I ask.

I don't require any "link back" or other conditions.

These dollz are just a fun project for me and something
I do for entertainment...so having them posted on other
websites is very cool. The Pini's characters deserve
recognition and Warp has it's own prefered wording
for copyright rules (see the official EQ FAQ).

I'm happy to share them as fan art and hope you all
enjoy them!
--NS

Mirr

*smile at Nightsea and Apogee*

Oh, you're probably right, Nightsea, they're probably adopted dolls then :)
I was just sooo happy to see EQ dolls!

Going very slow to add new dolls for me with Uni taking up most of my time :/
But.. I am trying to doodle on some EQ bases myself atm..


Kagri, goodness.. that doll really was something special :)
*hmms and will ogle those Bratz dolls at the toystore more attentative now*
I wonder what she used to make/add those ears to the doll though, but figure she sure had patience re-painting that face, that's for certain!

ChristinaRaibert0

My own lil bunch of Elfquest dollz! :D Mostly are all Brill related right now, I made two of her, one of her possible father Haze, one of her possible mother Farbright and an older family shot with Krill (whom own doll isn't finished yet... that outfit is driving me mad). I plan to add (as long as I finish them): stand-alone Krill, Spine, Sunstream, Cutter, Leetah, Ember, perhaps even Shuna (give me time, I'm having an hell of a job with Spine's hairdo!!)... oh and a new one of Brill, whom base will be entirely drawn by me this time, inspired to the splash page in Turning Tide when she's on Far Rock...
next Sunstream's grandparents, and perhaps Savah...



BRILL (base by Xandorra's Place)
I'm pretty satisfied with how her outfit came out. Due to a mistake of my own thought I gave her sandels, while she only has leather straps on her arm. However sandels work fine on her :)


Another BRILL (base by StarTippers)
The biggest base works better, thought her outfit still needs some details. Love how the headpiece and the lacings in her hair come out though, and her legs fins aren't that bad too.


HAZE, Brill's possible father (base by Xandorra's Place)
Nothing much to say here. I think I colored his hair a perhaps slighter shade of aqua then it was meant to be. Oh and his outfit was difficult to draw (and had to be unpratical to wear as well!)


FARBRIGHT, Brill's possible mother (base by Xandorra's Place)
I'm not that fond of her fish tail, but her fins came out just as I wanted them to be and her top and headpiece are quite well done too. I also gave her the blue earrings! Love her color scheme, so much blue to draw :D


BRILL, KRILL, HAZE and FARBRIGHT grouped together (bases are from Xandorra's Place)
Just a quick sketch thingie to see how they looked like together. I wasn't entirely satisfied with Farbright's tail and fins at that time so I redid them (see her own picture for the differences). You might also notice her outfit wasn't as accurate as the late version. Oh and this is my very first attempt at making a Krill doll. Her costume still needs some work, but I think overally she came out nice!


And at last (but not least...)


SNOWCRY, my CatRider chieftess from Three Lakes Holt
(base by Xandorra's Place)
A character I roleplay in my very own Elfquest-based fan holt... like how her spear and outfit come out, thought her hair is way too flat (but nicely fuzzy). Beware this angry cat of an elf-woman, anyone!

Christina you shouldn´t be Anonymouswolf eh? Wink Anyhoo, all these dolls are great! Anyone ever thought of making a Rayek doll? :D

Nightsea

Anyone ever thought of making a Rayek doll? :D



Always happy to take requests! :)

This isn't a small palace sized doll. I decided to roam the
net in search of more of the larger style bases, and thus
you now have Rayek alone and Rayek with his captured
queen!








Base credit:

Rayek: The Short North http://www.misled-youth.net/theshortnorth/index2.htm

Winnie doll alone: ? --if you know this pose please tell me who made
the base!

All the rest of the art = Nightsea! (All the clothing and edits
this time are my fault)

Any more requests?

*Happy Pixelating*

Luvli luvli luvly!!!!! Other requests? Hmmm... My chara Wildfire?

Nightsea

I've no idea what your character is supposed to look like, but
you can post or private message and I might give it a whirl.

Meanwhile...








*Peaceout*
--NS

wildfire

Really liek the first one of Clearbrook and One-Eye!
The second one I have some problems recognizing... Rillfisher? Her boobs might be too big for her head.
Like the last one, especially the pose but I think, that if Aroree´s hair wasn´t tied up, but were "whirling" in the wind, it would look better Wink Just my thought (Oh yeah, and I´ll PM you about thé Wildfire thing)

Tynami

My EQ doll site is almost open!

Just wanted to know if anyone wants to add any last minute dollz to the page

I'll send the site URL as soon as it's totally ready

Ty

Nightsea

Yes, that's Rillfisher. The fish was supposed to be the clue there. lol
The shading I did made her bust size seem to increase, I agree.
However, it isn't too bad when you consider I also gave her a
bit of belly and curved her hair into her torso, thereby hiding
part of her ribcage. I know elves aren't fat, but let's pretend
Rillfisher is expecting...not quite the two years max, but
somewhere late in the first "turn" (year).

Yes, I probably should have done more with Aroree's hair, but
I got lazy. Maybe sometime I'll redo it with that in mind.

I'll await your pm description of your character.

Meanwhile, here's another little doll I did of my elfself/
battlebabe Nightsea, holding her trek weapon and in
her mirror uniform two piece outfit.

Mirr

btw, have you seen the bases on this page? :)

Meguey's Dollz

Just saw on eqfanart.com that someone had posted about there being another doll!

http://www.dolls-n-daggers.com/Dolls/OOAKwinnowill.html
Surprised

Amazing eyes... but the dress, was it that sleeved or was it more layered?
Still, pretty wonderful artistic freedom if so...

scarlettdoll

At one point in time, someone was selling a bunch of Barbies they'd redone and there were a few EQ ones. There was a Winnowill. They are amazing looking but I can't imagine the amount of time that went into them!

Arfurido

Wooow!!! Did you see her other dolls??! Awsome!! And I think she made this one too -- Legolas! Actually I think $405 is a bit cheap for that doll!

scarlettdoll

Yeah, considering the amount of work that went into them. But then, what would you do with it once you had it?

Mueh! Handmade, gorgeous looking doll, there's only one like it in the world! You'll treasure it forever... okay, maybe 400 is a fair price, I just liked it so much :mrgreen:

Skywise2

Surprised what a great site! I like the Galadriel one.

Arfurido

Surprised Barbie will never be the same again!!

Mirr

I saw a great page with Barbie/ other doll remakes and so, they had done a doll that looked so creepingly alike Glenn Close in "Dangerous Liasons", We're talking face, outfit.. everything!, and one of Arwen there too, but it wasn't as impressive.. I lost those bookmarks though.. *sniffle* :(

Tynami

Please tell me that someone knows who made these dollz?




Other than that, I have a ElfQuest dollz webpage that you are all welcome to join in building... http://kat.of-the-night.com/~elfquest

Ty

Mirr

Oh, I like that page, katcombs!
Maybe once my brain gets sorted from all this studying, I can add some of my EQ elves there :)

Hmm, no clue about those dolls.. where did you find them?
Doesn't seem to be any typical dollmaker signum/copyright thingy on them either, to identify them?

Tynami

There are a few new dollz in the Kat folder... like Ember and Leetah! :)
http://kat.of-the-night.com/~elfquest/

Ty

Mirr

katcombs, there's already so much to look at on that page, eeeek Surprised
But you don't have a page with details of updates, or a guestbook so far though? That should help keep track on updates as well as expressing opinions about your page.

Also, a bit confused over the credit stuff on the dartfan page.. not to mention the lack of adoptions policies here and there. For Karli you have a banner on the bottom of the page, with a "Done by" text next to it, so that feels pretty understandable, as that text is really what I feel is missing on dartfan's page there.. and time to put together a banner for Nightsea too perhaps, and have a more overall crediting structure for each person? :)

Speaking of which.. if I want to link you from my page.. what banner should I use? I'd prefer a 130 x 55 pixels banner :)

Tynami

Okay... put all the ones I adopted onto there own page... the no adoption rule is because they are not mine, and you need to get them off the pages they goto... on my page it's cause they are my personal characters.... I just don't want my characters on other peoples sites, that's all :)

Otherwise the dollz on the other peoples pages are there own... they make the pages, not me :) The banner on the front page is the one to use for the site :)

*chuckles* Havin' fun!

Yes, I know, but I was wondering where that disclaimer was to be found, hence the term "lack of adoptions policy", whether they are for adoption or not :)
As it is a usual disclaimer for adoptions, telling people to go to the respective dollmaker's page to adopt dolls from there, than from a second source, so to speak. But maybe you need to put that explicitly in writing somewhere, as well as for the other dolls you are sort of hosting there?

Some people might claim, if you do find dolls that you did not want adopted on their page, that they saw no "no adoptions" disclaimer on your page. Then things will not be all too happy.. so I'd say add a really stern © disclaimer, and a "no adoptions one" then. As it is now, I just see an EQ disclaimer info and a not to stern "made by" disclaimer thing. Maybe, you also should add a disclaimer about no permission to take your dolls and edit them or frankendoll them in any way too, just to be on the safe side?
Sorry to be nagging about this :)

*glances at page again**
Ah much better, now it's easier to distinguish which chars are yours and which are adoptions :)
Hmm, maybe state in some sentences on the main Elven Holt page, what this page is about and that you are sort of gather/hosting (other's) EQ dolls and so?

Ah yes, but that banner is 115x45 pixels.. hmm, may I add a frame or something to make it 130x50 pixels?

Tynami

I really should do something with the doll page for the ElfQuest dollz, the other day I saw 2 Ember dollz and now I can't find the website where I found them. So can't put them up til I find the host site. I've found tons more, but ahm waiting to hear back from the original hosts. It's all good. Please, if anyone is interested in making ElfQuest dollz, even if they're micros, please let me know.

Vaya, if you're reading this... we've really gotta get started on your section :(

I just fiddled around with my portion of the site and added some
more images. I've more to fix and post some other time, but
this is version 2.0. http://kat.of-the-night.com/%7Eelfquest/nightseas/

Please enjoy,

Tynami

This site has moved...
Now please look at http://kat.of-the-night.com/ElfQuest

Comments and additions welcome!

Mirr

Seems katcombs no longer has her ElfQuest Pixel Doll page up... but grieve not, I have finally made those ElfQuest Pixel Doll Bases that I have been talking about, only took me a year :D


As to celebrate the first printing of ElfQuest in 1978, on this very day, the 28th of February I am also holding an ElfQuest themed pixel doll contest!

> Please clickie here to see my ElfQuest Bases..

> And.. please clickie here to read more about the contest..


NB: Often during pixel doll contests, participants are required to have an own pixeldolling page, but I know there are many creative fans on this forum and elsewhere that do not have any such page, therefore anyone is allowed to enter, if they have a dedicate pixeldollpage it'd just be a bonus.. so what are you waiting for, start getting (more) creative!

MultiMEDEA

I'd like to, it sounds like fun. But I don't have any patience for fiddling with .gif images. It seems simpler (and nicer) just to draw by hand with a cg program. :D

Tynami

I've still got it up :)
http://kat.of-the-night.com/EQ/

I had to move it cause of direct linking...
I need to update it, it's out of date...

Foxeye

Oh, that site is WONDERFUL! I just can't get enough of all the little pixel elves.

Mirr

Ah, katcombs, glad to hear it just switched location, I'll update my links asap! :)

MultiMEDEA, I know what you mean, even if one fiddles with these gifs in psd layers (or tiff layers as it seems one can too nowdays) in great enhancement, there's those edges of the pixel doll to think of.. BUT, keep in mind, any type of background can easily be added to cover up semi-transparent edge pixels of the doll ;)

Tynami

Still looking...

I'm doing a rehash of my ElfQuest site and adding back in the links... can ya'll help me find character shrines and point me towards any EQ dollz? I know there's more out there that I've missed...

*hugs*

Nightfall Doll!

The unanimated version was made for a contest.. but seems the contest arranger got stuck in the big blue box, ie, she actually got a life.

Anyhow, feel free to adopt, just link/credit me :)

I am making more, bigger dolls, on my own elf base, but I have yet to complete them.

Aww, that's so cute :) She looks like she's spotting Redlance somewhere, love how she looks here.

I dig the Nightfall image! Well done.

Tynami

How did I miss that Nightfall?!?! Adorable!!

innie

Do you mean Maleen? That's the girl that was quite into Skywise. I love all your dolls btw, especially Venka, Ember, Dewshine and Nightfall.

Tynami

That sounds right. :) Thank you sooo much! I am taking requests to make more! Especially if they're female.

Treefox

Looks like quite a lot of work. How do you make them? My favorite is Aroree.

It's a great job, but why do they all look German (even the dark ones)?

Well, here's the next installment of dollz :) One of these days I'll get back to regular dollz, right now though, I'm sticking with micros (lilguyz).



So far this is it :) With winter Kahvi, I had alot of help from Scott. I want to make Cresent, Kimo, Dart, Tyleet & Sunstream, but their hair frightens me.

That's the first part of a 2 part micro tutorial available at the
Yahoo Group called "lilguyz". I'm not sure if you'll have to
join the group or not to access it, but it's free so take the
time to get a yahoo ID and join up, Treefox.

Oh, and since I'm a curious sort too...why is your avatar
of a goat getting washed? I wouldn't ask except that
there is a family joke about washing goats at my house...
and I can't believe that I even found an image of that
online in your avatar! Where did it come from? Did
you draw it? Is it in something online? *mind boggles*

I originally started this thread with dolls like the type
that were invented to go with Palace software.
Like this one:


I still think those are small and so easy to make.
Microheros are slightly bigger. Sprites are the
tiniest I've seen online.

Sometimes you can find other odd bases (not sure where I found
this one, but it had short wing-hands, so tyldak was a natural edit):


I still have so much fun pushing pixels around trying to
make elves.

:)
--Nightsea

Badger

Got to love that Tyldak. I am not a huge fan of his, but that doll is way too sweet.

Treefox

Thanks for the guide!

Nightsea

Thanks for the comment, Badger! Glad you liked
him.

Anytime, Treefox. Any info available on your
avatar? Still laughing at a goat being washed...

:D
--Nightsea

Treefox

Glad you like it! That is from a book series by Philip Ardagh called "Awful End". I absoultely love these books. But I guess you have to be a person to like that kind of humor. Maybe I should make a signature out of it, so the whole picture can be seen. That goat is actually washed with a watering can.

Nightsea

Great, I love books to add to my reading list. Thanks!

I'd really love to see more of the image too, just for kicks
if you have the time.

:D
--Nightsea

Oh...and here are more images that started with a doll base,
but then received heavy changes (I seem to be addicted!):



Treefox

Hey, sexy Winnowill!
Very nice!

Tried to make a sig, but it didn't work...

Kitt

LEETAH!!!! :love:

Nightsea

Very glad you both liked an image. Thanks for posting.
I really dig getting comments.

:D
--Nightsea

Made a new one tonight...it wasn't made from a doll, but
maybe someone could make it into one?

Tynami


New ElfQuest: Cutter (mostly Joffre, mixed his micros), Timmain (redo), Dewshine (Joffre's hair, I LOVE this one), Leetah (Joffre's hair), Newstar (redo), Tyleet (all mine), Moonshade (Joffre's hair), Strongbow (w/ Joffre)

Tynami

Oh wow Nightsea, these looks great!!! I should put the micro tutorials back on my page... MikeP made an excellent one here http://mikep.of-the-night.com/ Hope that helps! Sorry it took me so long to answer :)

Nightsea

Hey katcombs! I really dig your Tyleet and your Strongbow too.
I think your Cutter rocks as well. I am glad you are giving the guys
of EQ a try. Anytime you want help with hair or whatever I'd be happy
to give it a shot. I think hair is the easiest bit to get actually. I don't
do the details of costumes so well myself. Keeping everything sharp
and the backgrounds transparent is hard too, since I don't use a simple
paint program (I use Paint Shop Pro 7). I get too tempted to use
the shading tools and the airbrush so I don't wind up with pixels at
100% opacity. One of these days I will read tutorials and find out
how to use only flat pixels to get the same results.

I'm going to check out the one you just posted. Thanks!

Write me more here (PM or post) or send me email or IM me...
my contact info is online at my website: http://nightsea.4t.com
on the Contact page of that site. I'd like to collaborate with you!

:)

Aww that Nightsea is so cute! I had just PM'd you to ask if the

Found another cute candybar style doll maker online:

Treefox

Those eyes...so big! :daze:

Nightsea

Yeah, I could have edited them all to make them
more Elfquest like...but I was just playing around
with the available dolls online. I thought that they
had good clothing options and backgrounds that
fit in sorta well with EQ. Unlike the other dolls
in this thread, none of the art is mine on those at
all (excluding the decisions to use bits that were
presented, of course).

Anyway, it was a fun way to kill some time online.
Give it a whirl if you like...maybe make your two
new "quicky characters" from your role playing?
Tho I think it might not be easy to find yellow fur
outfits there...or anywhere!

Surprised

RichardPini

I love these!! All the different ones! (I really should go into more threads, more often!)

Thanks for the post, Richard! Made my day that you
noticed our goofing around. :)

If you want to investigate the whole world of pixel
art and dolls online, there are tons of nice websites
with everything from cute little pixels to lovely lush
poses. I've been enjoying them for a while now
(PM me if you want some urls).

Yay dolls!

*chuckles and HUGS* Thank you so much for the post!! Now THAT inspires me :) Ahm gonna make some more little ones, but this time using my own base... gonna be tiny, but that's the only thing that agrees with me at the moment. Hope to have something for ya'll by next weekend.
