I wanted to make it in segments that would facillitate a more natural movement.
Luckily, all the pieces I designed fit together nicely, though I did have to modify some pieces. When I was designing this figure, I had seen something on Pinterest and was struck by the exagerated length of the fingers, which lent an eloquence to the figure that I liked, so I am trying to put it in this prototype. I didn't quite get there, but I will keep trying
Then slipped on the casing over the body, and added the tail.
Great flexability and nice shape!
Next - the face. I drew in the eye shape, and wanted to give this faceto be looking up, so that if her head was down, she would still be looking up. I marked in the Iris colour first, with green Prismacolour pencil, then put the white halfway around it, leaving white under the iris. Next, I put in the pupil at the top of the eye shapein the centre of the iris. I used the head pattern I have in my Needlesculpting, drawing and colouring expressive faces Tutorial, on my Etsy page, https://www.etsy.com/nz/shop/SFMClothDollPatterns?ref=seller-platform-mcnav
I outlined the lips with Micron pen in brown, and coloured the lips with Crimson Lake red prismacolour pencil. Drew in her nostrils - keeping the nose subtle, because the eyes and mouth are the important features. A little white highlight on one side of the lower lip. Her cheeks have Faber Castel flesh chalk pastel rubbed on, and the brushed off with a blending brush, to give that softly blushed cheek.
So here's the Drama Queen
Showing off all her moves
Life in a fishbowl....
Is so boring!
To be strung up!
