So I've made a couple more dolls. I am having a ton of fun making them!

This is Darla:

Darla is my second doll. She definitely belongs in the back of the room, but I decided not to throw her away.

I made her a little bow and some hair:


Here is the hand:


I read over a tutorial a while ago, but forgot where it was. I made a hand from my memory of the tut.
Turns out I am not so great at mixing skin tones, so I just made it greeeeen. Franken-hand throwing up the peace sign.



Here is my current pride and joy: Colleen



I made some eyeballs before I made her. I just painted them white and stuck them in her head. I tried to do some wrinkles, but I need some tips! Do you guys make the wrinkles while they're wet? How do you go about emphasizing them? I tried to paint black in, wipe with a wet paper towel, but it didn't work too hot. Any suggestions?

These are eerie looking! Are you keeping like this or are they going to be turned into a full bodied doll? Either way they are interesting and the one with no eyes/sunken eye sockets is really creepy to me...

Real talent coming out here with all your busts, etc. . . .can't believe you're really a beginner!  Good sense of design and shape. Not crazy about all the bloody/scary stuff personally but definitely great for Halloween  Cheesy

Thanks for the compliments.

I have no idea why I dig the dead people thing. I think they're easier to make - though I really haven't tried making someone alive. Plus, it's less intimidating making a fantasty object than trying to make something that is supposed to resemble a person.

Oh, so true!  And they can just be more fun somtimes too since you can make them look pretty much any way you want, add anything you want, etc.!!
