Audra in Progress

So I have been trying to do a better job of documenting my dolls. I typically take pictures of completed dolls but I often forget to take shots of the doll as it developes. Audra was a commission from a friend of mine. I had fun making her. Using tricks of the trade learned from Elinor Peace Bailey, I experimented with button joints to make Audra fully posable.audrainprogress.jpg Audra in Progress

I also experimented with tea dying her body to give her this creamy tan color. I think my favorite part of making dolls is drawing the face. Call me crazy but I think the face, especially the eyes give the dolls so much personality. I like to focus on the eyes.audrainprogress3.jpg Here is a close up of Audra’s face. I used prisma colored pencils to sketh in the features before I began to paint. audracompleted.jpg And here she is finished. I went with an urban harem girl feel. Her clothes are made from remnants from other projects (I am “thrifty” so I try not to waste anything!).
