Here is a doll head I sculpted and painted the other day. I didn't attach the soft-body yet.
I made a fennec fox because they are scientifically proven to be the most adorable animal on the planet. I hope I was able to capture that in my sculpture.


I used paint in a color called "black sequin" to make the eyes and nose look moist and twinkly.


Those magnificent ears! Seriously, I think fennec foxes should be able to fly.


Profile.


Another profile.


Smiles.

Feedback?
What do you think I should name him? I was thinking of making him a felt fedora and suspenders once I attach the body and limbs.

LOL! Not only is he adorable, but since I read "fedora and suspenders," all I can think is he must be a little mobster from the dirty thirties Tongue Franco immediately popped into mind as a name.

Gosh, his head is so cute, I can't wait to see the rest of him!

Hahaha! I guess it does sound kind of mafia-esque now that you mention it. XD Franco the fennec: he'll make you an offa too cute to refuse. :-P

He's adorable!! What about Frank Fennec? I love Fennec Foxes. My guy has a kitten with giant ears who we like to refer to as a fennec. I think he'd be adorable in a zoot suit (or pretty much anything!)

Thanks! Aww, that kitten sounds so cute! I think animal ears are the cutest possible thing on the planet, from tiny rat ears to floppy lab ears and giant fennec ears, all too cute!

I bet it would be a real challenge to make a custom zuit suit for an art doll. I could try, though, that would be swingin' Cheesy
