You're saying pixels are easy?
I just want to understand you correctly.

it's easy to colour and customize pixel dolls cause I always do that there this website I go in called dollz mania there alot of dress up dollz that you can make and I used paint program and photo editor to create my own characters that comes up in my mind and how I do it.

I use chazie cause it's awesome

....Have you ever made a pixel doll from scratch?

Doll makers, no matter how you edit them, really don't count. It's a good start into easing your way into pixel art, don't get me wrong, but they are in no way the same thing.

I've used it from scratch many times before when  I  accidentally erase some folders that I was using at the time but I used paint and photo editor to make my pixel doll chazie is one of my favourite dollz to this day I still used dollz mania to make my pixel dollz.

pixlr.com/editor/ is what i'm using it's a free online photo editor with a prefessional touch. Fix, adjust and filter your images. Manage your images in your browser, no registration here is the list of tools I used in pixlr



  1. Use selection tools
    • Marquee tool – Click the button, then click and drag your screen to select a square or rectangular area.
    • Move tool – Click the button, then click and drag your screen to move your layer, selection, etc.
    • Lasso tool – Click the button, then click and drag your screen to make selections freehand. To complete the selection, close the loop by dragging all the way back to your starting point.
    • Crop – Click the button, then click and drag your screen to crop down to whatever you have selected.
    • Wand – Click the button, then click your screen to select swaths of color that match the color you clicked on. Check Contiguous to only select pixels that touch; uncheck Contiguous to select matching pixels anywhere in the image. Raise or lower your Tolerance to make the color parameters more or less strict.
  2. 5
    Use editing tools.
    • Pencil tool – Click the button, then click and drag your image to draw freehand.
    • Eraser tool – Click the button, then click and drag your image to erase that area.
    • Brush tool – Click the button, then click and drag your image to draw freehand.
    • Paint Bucket tool – Click the button, then click your image to apply a solid color to that area.
    • Clone Stamp tool – Click the button, then hold down Ctrl and click an area of the image that you’d like to clone. Release Ctrl, then move the cursor over the area where you want the cloned image to be and click and drag; the area around your source will then appear wherever you click and drag. This is a very useful tool for covering imperfections (ex. cloning a smooth area of skin over a blemished area).

    • Gradient tool – Click the button, then click and drag your image to apply a color gradient to that portion of the image. The color(s) of the gradient come from the two color patches in your Tools panel (usually white and black as the defaults). Change the color patches to change the color(s) used in the gradient. You can also modify the type of gradient by changing the options at the top of the screen.
  3. 6
    Use blending tools. Click and drag for more obvious effects; repeat-click for subtler effects.
    • Blur tool – Click the button, then click your image to blur that area.
    • Sharpen tool – Click the button, then click your image to sharpen that area.
    • Smudge tool – Click the button, then click your image to smudge that area. This is useful for softening wrinkles.
    • Sponge tool – Click the button, then click your image to saturate or desaturate (i.e. intensify or reduce) the colors in that area.
    • Dodge tool – Click the button, then click your image to lighten that area.
    • Burn tool – Click the button, then click your image to darken that area.
  4. 7
    Use special filters and effects.
    • Red Eye tool – Click the button, then click on the red parts of the eye in the photo to correct those areas.
    • Drawing tool – Click the button, then click and drag to draw freehand shapes.
    • Bloat tool – Click the button, then click your image to fatten up that area. Useful for making lips more pouty, eyes bigger, etc.
    • Pinch tool – Click the button, then click your image to shrink that area.
  5. 8
    Use miscellaneous tools.
    • Color Picker tool – Click the button, then click a color you like in your image; that color will now be the mail color in you color patches. To select a picked color as the alternate (i.e. background) color in your color patches, hold SHIFT while clicking.
    • Text tool – Click the button, then click and drag your image to create a box into which you can type.
    • Hand tool – Click the button, then click and drag your image to scroll it around.
    • Magnifying tool – Click the button, then click your image to magnify.

it's a long list cause I was looking this up on How to Use the Pixlr Online Image Editor I know it very well even when I was growing up I was getting used to pixel stuff on this computer and when i gotten the hang of it i started making bigger dolls the little ones. even then to this day I still do it.

Its funny that you should mention that because you were one of my idols when I first got started in the dolling world. X3 I loved all your anime style stuff!♥ :hug:

And I look forward to seeing what you come up with next! (I'll also be keeping an eye open for when your commissions open again. :))

Ah yeah, I've been distracted lately, but I slipped and fell down some stairs yesterday so I've been ordered to rest today. Maybe hopefully today or tomorrow I can get the commissions writeup done :D

Oh my gosh I hope you're doing okay. That is crazy. O.O I hope you didn't fall too far. Goodness. Take your time and try not to push yourself too much. That must have hurt!

Oh it hurt like a son of a gun XD The bruise is really getting red and purple now and it goes a little bit up my arm from my elbow too. I've been icing it a lot, so it's been helping with the pain. Thank you so much for your concern though, but I'm sure my clumisness is genetic, so I just need to be more careful.

I wonder why it's called a Sapphire Crystal (most destructive in the galaxy!) when it's crimson coloured and not blue. I always imagined it blue.

That sounds right...and I believe the only reason a sapphire can't be red is because, then, it would be considered a ruby. Which, then, TECHNICALLY, would make a ruby a red sapphire.

I have NO clue how I even learned that, TBH. One of the many random pieces of useless trivia lodged in my brain.

Well, one piece of random trivia that I know is that when Amethyst is heated and cooled enough over and over, it turns into Citrine :D
