This is what I've been working on for the last 2-1/2 weeks: I am taking a class from Danita Art on doll making. This is my very first ever attempt at a painted doll and I had never drawn a face before, either. Frankly, I was scared. But I followed instructions and it worked.
Rather crooked stripes on the legs. Much harder than one would think.
There is definitely room for improvement, but I'm quite happy with my first attempt. I love all the techniques I learned along the way and I already have ideas for other dolls. Finding the time, now that's another problem.
