UPDATE: Those interested in the Royal Wedding, it's 11PM on the 28th April, and Sarah Burton has just been seen going into Kate Middleton's hotel!! It's pretty much official: WE HAVE A MCQUEEN WEDDING DRESS PEOPLE!!!
Despite being an avid reader of this blog, I have only used my author privileges once since gaining them, which was a fair few months ago! SO for your lovely eyes, and in order to stay awake so I feel like crap in the morning and can get off school [so much homework, so little motivation..], I thought I'd show you one issue of Vogue that Kylie didn't cover in her recent post [which now has me aspiring to travel the world so I can purchase them all, or at least set up some heftily-priced subscription services].

It’s been quite some time since I did a scenery tutorial so I decided to do one (:
Today’s scenery will be inspired by this photo:
For this scenery we’re going to start out with a black background.
The first thing we must determine is what angle to place the head at. I drew a line on the picture and my doll to help figure this out:
On the picture you can see the line is about a 45 degree angle, so then I just had to rotate my doll until it was also at the same angle.
Then I moved my doll to the center of the scenery, because having symmetry always makes a scenery look better. So now we’re going to work on her left arm. The first thing you should notice about this arm is how close it is to her chin. The next thing you should notice is the angle of her arm.
Taking these things into account, the arm should be placed like this:
Now we place another arm in to bend it like this:
Now we move on to the right arm.
When doing the first part of this arm you have to be careful that the head does not overlap the left arm:
Now this is where it gets tricky. It’s really challenging to put the last part of the arm in place with out covering the other parts that you want. So I put the arm down a few layers, but I had to keep it above the first part of the left arm (or else it would go behind the other head).
This is a sacrifice I had to make, but it is easily blended in. Now I have to cover up everything I don’t need. Let’s take a look at what I do need:
Keeping in mind what we do need, I’ll cover up what we don’t need.
Now I am well aware that this does not look to fab, but once your put clothes on it’ll look a lot better (:
Now for complex poses it's best to use objects as clothes, like I did above. Now just add a few items, maybe tying in a theme, and a tile:
"If only we had more time..."
And tada! you're done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! How did it compare to my previous ones?

Hey everyone, how are you all this Easter? Got lots of chocolate? ;D
I've compiled a list of Vogue's 2011 May covers, some of them are just amazing, others not so much. Tell me your favourites in the comments and if you'll be picking up an issue!
Vogue Japan features Kate Moss on the cover in pastel pink.
Vogue Australia has Julia Nobis on the cover. Not one of my favourites, even if it is Australian!
I love this cover by Vogue Russia with Maryna Linchuk on the cover. It's a gorgeous dress with a very bold neck piece.
Reese Witherspoon is on the cover of Vogue US. Her new movie with Robert Pattinson is out, anyone going to see 'Water for Elephants'?The gorgeous Frida Gustavsson is on the cover of Vogue China. Anyone else love her as much as I do? :P
Kate Moss has yet another Vogue cover this month, this time on Vogue Paris. Not quite sure what to make of all the hands grabbing at her, but she does look stunning.
And Bregje Heinen is on the cover of Vogue Greece! Love those colours!
What do you think?
Should I continue posting more covers? What magazines would you like to see?
