November Mini Monthly Challenge

The Mini-Monthly challenges often really appeal to me, but who has the time to make a whole doll in a month. Let's face it, in my current state one a year is about right! November's challenge is Medium Mayhem, which is basically about making a doll in a way you have never done before. I'm all about paper-clay over cloth these days (or I was when I still was able to make dolls!) and so I decided to try just paperclay over a wire armature and some polyballs. This is the rather hilarious result...

Not finished by a long way but at least I am enjoying it, sort of. I feel as though I should have some anatomy books out in front of me or at least be attempting to do something realistic, but with December fast approaching I decided that speed outweighed style and just went for it!. One day I will have a go at really sculpting a doll, maybe even a bjd, but, errrrr, this isn't it ;o)

Looking great, regardless. I have all kinds of anatomy books left over from my college days...required to take life drawing as art student. Hated it 'cuz I'm not of a draw-er, as I was told by 2 professors...I'm an ILLUSTRA-TOR!! Whatever!! LOL

xxoo,
