The People Who Lift Me Up

Oct 22, 2009

The next attempt...

I wasn't 100% happy with my first head so gave it another go a bit back. I am much happier with this one. All her hair is not sewn on and will not be styled until she has a body. I also decided to do her eyelids at a different angle in order to have her looking head on but I am not sure if it was the right choice? Ahwell it's done now lol. I also think her nose is a bit too low but I just cannot make myself do a flat face so had to sculpt under her eyes which moved the nose down..another ahhhhwell LOL.
I used my uht oh head pattern modified and plan on using my hands and feet in order to stay close to the book but I am going to use Judi Ward's Dahnia pattern for the body as I think it will work perfectly and the 13 joints will be fantastic for posing! This is the first time I will be merging patterns so I pray I get the measurements correct!!! I do plan on making Judi Ward's Dahnia down the road 100% as she is. She is a gorgeous pattern! I want one for my bed LOL.


  1. Ree, she looks to me a spitting image of your dolly she is going to move...
    do you mean, body and hands and head>? I can't think for the life of me why she can't keep her pink striped canned body>? She is adorable...have you been thinking Christmas dolls yet? blessings Madame Samm

  2. WOW Ree!! I agree with the above comment, spitting image!! How adorable!

    p.s. I love your display of CBK. I have a few myself. :)

  4. Hi Ree!

    I love the artwork you are basing this doll on...can you tell me where the picture is from? It looks like your rendering will be spot-on...can't wait to see it finished. You do really wonderful work :-)
