what’s going on? d2′s insane!

nope, pip’s just so small that she’s easy to work on while i’m watching tv! that and i’m hoping if i get her to the point of sanding, then i’ll be forced to do the sanding on all my other dolls too (and with summer coming up and no sign of a job, i’ll probably have a lot of time on my hands….)

so here she is so far – a sketch of her face so i have a better idea of what i’m going to sculpt -

a craptastic picture of her profile – but her nose and upper lip are matching the profile sketch i did! now to do the lower lip/chin and eyes… oh, and ears…. i always forget the ears….

and this is her next to my (faceless) puki for size – i want her to have a 4 inch head, but currently it’s around 3, so i’m going to have to bulk it out i fear….

what’s that you say? d2′s gone crazy?

yeah yeah, you’re thinking it.

i know it!i’ve gone and started a new doll without finishing any of the others! BUT – to be fair – i have been working on them!

i’ll be ordering some mold materials soon to put xolotl in resin so i can finish her.
i’m working on sanding my big ones and getting them sculpted.
and cooper’s… well…. cooper. i’m having isuses with him, sadly….

but this is my new girl – pip – she’ll be about 21.5cm tall when i’m finished.
i’ve only worked on her two days so far (okay, technically 3, but i didn’t work on the second day)

and yep, that is coffee stirrers i’m using for her “skeleton” and masking tape to bulk it out some to be the size i want.

pip started sculpting


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
