Faces ! Faces! Faces!
I can't stop drawing faces...lol
I won't bore you with the all the artwork, just the ones that have possibilities...lol
If you are wondering why the eyes are black, that's just my style.
I draw all my faces with black eyes, kind of like a black and white photo
with just a little color. I hope it translates well into a doll.
I have started drawing the faces a little smaller because when I make the head
it distorts the facial features. The face on the stuffed head looks nothing like the face I drew
on the flat cloth.
I have tried drawing the face after it is stuffed, but it just hasn't worked for me. So I guess
I'll stay with what works...lol
For me drawing the face freehand is so much more fulfilling than a photo face doll,
like the ones I created before. I don't know why I didn't try this long ago...
I guess the creative process is a slow progression for me.
