Wow well it's finally done! Slogging away at AS3 for a couple of weeks is honestly a fantastic way to get some good nights sleep I can tell ya.
I've always been a huge advocate of visual representations! I know if I was buying a custom doll I'd be thrilled to bits if I could accurately see what it was going to look like. This designer has limitations on the body, tummy and wing fabrics because I can only buy them in certain colours (although there are 64 to choose from!). The other parts have colourpickers, which you can put a hex code in if you like or select from a standard swatch list. Added to that... There is a free-draw ability so when you click and drag the mouse you can draw (admittedly blocky) designs onto the wings!
The free-draw feature has realistic limitations. When I airbrush markings onto a doll they aren't opaque, otherwise the fur would get matted and crusty. They blend nicely with the base fabric, and I tried to reflect that in the designer by making the free-draw a multiply layer. You can choose the colour of the free-draw feature with a colourpicker
My long-term watchers will have seen me experimenting with this concept before with my "design a doll" project which I submitted nearly a year ago to the day! 6th Feb 2012...
I think I've come a way since then...
There are no rules for this, you may use the images in any way you like so long as you DO NOT remove the link to my website.
And most importantly! Mofs are available to buy on my Etsy, there are two premades still available
or if you're having a blast with the designer and have made something you really love, there are THREE custom Mof slots available!
Blurb from loading/starting page:
Welcome to the Magweno Art Dolls Mof Designer! Here you can choose from 64 different colours of fabric for the body, tummy and wings of your doll, as well as choose any colour you like for the head, ruff, hands, feet, eyes and all the other details. You can even draw your own designs on your Mof's wings and body!
This designer aims to be as accurate as can be! It's impossible for the dye to remain totally opaque on the fabric and remain soft, so the drawing effect is set to "multiply" to mimic that effect. Painting yellow onto black never really works & we want our Mofs to be as soft and cuddly!
When you're done designing your Mof you can click on the little save button and download the image to your computer. From there you can email me the image or upload it to a website, whatever you like!
Mof Dolls are available for £90 + P&P
If you'd like me to make your Mof please email your design to firstname.lastname@example.org with any extra instructions and I will send you an invoice!
