Cinco de Mayo

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Hola amigos! Today is Cinco de Mayo and I am happy about doll making again. I will admit, I was a bit stressed yesterday and you guessed it-- I got the pukey feeling about dolls again. There is just so much work involved in doll making and it is easy to get burnt out during a project. I know other artists can relate!

Anywhoo, I am back to talking myself through this Luke project... :)

I snapped a pic of Luke in natural light and have added more paint to the cropped area of his face. I need to tweak the left brow and of course add that thick medium already, lol. I do like the first layer of wispy hairs on his forehead so far. I should add more hairs to his temples. His lips need a lot of work and I will get started on those hopefully tonight. I discovered today that I prefer his eyes glancing to the right and so that is how I will set them.

I have been thinking a lot about his brows and possibly adding a few rooted hairs in place of the painted ones. I will keep thinking on that. He is very cute so far. This Shyann sculpt is addictive. Thank you, Aleina! ♥
