Small dolls are really not my forté, so I don't mind saying I was quite daunted when I unwrapped him, he's a fraction of the size of my usual dolls and some of them are a lot larger than those pictured below with him!
I am really into paperclay faces at the moment, though, so went ahead and had quite a frustrating time trying to create elf or goblin type features. Most of my sculpting experience so far has been sculpting life sized busts (heads, not lady-parts you understand!) at art college. This scale is way more difficult and I'm not entirely happy with the end result... but I guess he is a character! His annoying, squishy face and the fact that he was originally meant to have red hair, reminded me of a certain bizarro potato faced acting-challenged cop in CSI MIami - hence his nickname of "Horatio Jnr"! He will be going in the post to Angela Rousseau tomorrow and I will be getting Deena Maurus's doll from Helen shortly. Will keep you posted.
Say goodbye to Horatio Jnr... sorry, I mean Aiden!!!!
