Step 14: After I make the selection I copy (Ctrl+C) the finished eye.
Step 15: I’ll now begin to small details on the character , adding more yellow for her hair. And I decide to change her clothing clour to dark blue. Sometimes I have to change some colors like this. I am pretty much finished painting it’s body. Well now look at my little sweet doll character. She is smiling very sweetly
Step 16: Now we can start out detailing our character’s clothing. I also used Colour Dodge for the bright areas for her button. At this point I realized that my character needs some details like the stitches. So I make a new layer and paint some yellow lines as you see. I continue to adding more details. I also would like to add some more details on her hairs too. I add some strokes with the Dodge too. l use this because I want to add some slight light areas on the character. And here are the some tiny stitches. This is how it looks once all the adjustments are done with the Color Dodge and Burn tool.
Step 17: And also I do want to show you how I added those shiny areas on my character. I used Color Dodge for this effect. I always use this when I want to add some light areas on my illustrations.

And this is the final product of the Jada Doll. One thing you may have noticed if you have seen my previous works is I often design the characters in my illustrations with wide, ample eyes. The reason for this is, as you may know, we are born with the same size of eyes we will have throughout our life. That’s why babies and children create that “aww” effect on us adults, drawing designs with large eyes creates that intrinsic endearing feeling. I hope you found this Tutorial interesting.
