Cora 2010 by blood-cocoa Cora 2010 by blood-cocoa
I did it again. I've re-vamped Cora 3 times now since I first made her waaay back in 2003. She is now vastly, hugely, immensely more lovely than ever. Smoother, shaplier and generally nicer.

For a comparison over the ages see [link]
Ew, right?

I've a few other oldies I want to re-vamp, along with the other Cora and Corin poses.

Your Cora base has always been my favorite and the revamp is no exception. AMAZING! ^_^

Just curious, when is revamped Corin coming?

The second version of Cora will always be a nostalgic favorite of mine, but the newest version is awesome. <3

The original cora base (and corin) had a certain charm with their wide-eyed buglike pupils and snake nostrils! Large bases were still a novelty back then, and things like fingers, toes, and accurate color palettes could be ignored. Plus, the poses were so punk!

I think one of the intermediate edits hit a sweet spot between cartoony-face and realistic-face. One of the advantages of working with cartoon dolls is that we can emphasize facial features (particularly) eyes to be striking and emotive. This latest variation really does away with that in large part, and I think it's somewhat unfortunate, really, but I definitely understand wanting to strive for a simply rendered, yet realistic face.

However, having nicely defined hands and feet? That's a wonderful feat!

I remember when you first released these waaaay back in The Underground days. She (and her male counterpart) were always my favorite bases.

This is, in my opinion, the perfect base. The proportions are just right and the expressions are just priceless as are the simplistic poses. It's improved so much over time.

I guess so. Cora's proportions and style and really different to Brigh though so it probably won't match with the other Cora poses!

Nyu! :meow: I'm used the the third one, like it better with the eyes - sorry - but with the new one it seems they are too close to her nose - to me - but...I'm just used to the third one, with her facial features - mainly just the eyes because the facial features on the fourth one are also really well done. But I do really like the fourth one. ^-^ I think you did a really good job, and you shold revamp the others! :o

Om nom nom Cora nom nom.

I think I've used every single version of this base. And this is great - I've just been inspired to doll my way through this fantastic Harper's Bazaar Victorian collection book that I have, and logged on to DA thinking "I need to find a base for that..."

DING!

Wow, new revamp of Cora. Gotta say, I love her hips for some reason.

Maybe I should get back on a Cora-dolling spree again... or maybe wait until Corin has been revamped as well. Anyway, great job.

EEEEEEEEE! I've been waiting for this revamp for EVER!

Crap! Now I have to start my project over again XD

Thank you soo much!

Q: Can we still use the old facial structure/eyes from the third set on this one? Obviously altered to make it fit.

I guess so. The head shape has barely changed, but I'd move the old features up a pixel or 2, it's all smooshed too low!

omg she's so pretty! Cora was always my favourite base of yours. What was great about it originally was how it's 3/4 view and most bases back then were symetrical. I really like how this version has a more defined shape though. I can't wait to see the update on Corin.

It's strange though how over the years her eyes have become smaller and smaller.
