definitely be careful with the sharpies, the ink flows so easily and it doesnt require much touch to the fabric to get the proper transfer, I would definitely play with a scrap piece to get the feel for it (it does bleed past your lines on certain types of fabric! if your touch is light enough you wont notice it though!)

I have the pigma micron pens too Bambam, they're great and don't run at all. I always worry about the ink spreading and ruining an almost finished face.

You are right Ladies there was a spell check, I use it a lot! I just thought I just had my computer fix & I've had to reprogram back a lot of things, that maybe that was why. I have one when I right click but it doesn't always work.

"Tenitsu" What do you use when you draw eyes on or the lashes, felt tip markers or something special? I was going to try to draw them on. But I have never drawn on fabric before. I don't know if it'll work but I'll practice some before I actually do it. So don't expect to much LOL!!
 

I use Sharpie Stained fabric markers you can find em at walmart or on their website http://www.sharpie.com/enUS/Pages/stained-by-sharpie.aspx  (helps to know what they look like =D) I've seen them at Joanns too, so i'd suspect other places have them. The black one I use for eyeliner, the eye outline (but you have to draw with a REALLY light touch, the ink spreads easy) and for the pupils....I use the other colors for well thats obvious... for the whites of the eyes so they really stand out on the fabric I use Painters* opaque paint markers Elmer's make them and I got those at walmart too, http://www.elmers.com/product/detail/Painters%20Fine%20Tip%20Various?filterPath=paint-markers  (so you can see what they look like again)


If you do the eyes that way, I recomend drawing the eye outline first, color the whites in 2nd, then work the rest of the way (give each color about 5min or so to dry before going to a new color!) I can draw out an example if you need it!


Yes I am practicng first. It's coming along, still doing some more practice eyes she's coming together slowly but surley!! Sure if you want to draw a sample I would appreciate it, I'm a copier, I need visuals. Thanks "Tenitsu" for the info.

Sure, I'll post up a sample here in about an hour-ish, just gotta get a minute to sit down its kinda hellacious today!

Edit* Here's the photo, took with my broken iphone so hope it turned out good haha!



Just incase you cant read my notes
Step 1: Draw eye outline and let dry 5min (or till dry to touch *ie. no ink on finger if pressed gently*)

Step 2 Draw/color in whites of eyes (see dotted line on photo) and let dry completely (if using elmer's paint pens it takes longer than the sharpie to dry)

Step 3: Draw in actual eye design and let dry completely

Step 4, color in eye's as desired and let dry =D and done!

You should end up with something like this =D

Facial view (try to get eyes evenly spaced and as close to the first eye drawn as possible)


Close-up of eye detail


Also as a personal hint, from experience, try not to make the eye itself to small inside the eyeoutline otherwise you get this shocked/surprised look XD (compare the drawn sketch I made in 1min to the poppet picture where I took my time, I'm sure you can see the difference haha!!)

Ooh those eyes look fab Tenitsu  Grin 

A tip I read on a dollmaking blog was that if you are right handed then draw the left eye first as it will be easier to match it when you draw on the right eye. I haven't tried it myself as I always forget and draw the right one first  Roll Eyes

According to the Aus post website I've received from Bambam today but as its just turned midnight I don't think they will be dropping it off tonight  Sad Fingers crossed for tomorrow!!

I've had YEARS of practice drawing anime characters, after a while their faces are just second nature xD I actually was supposed to go to college for anime (i wanted to work in japan doing manga and animation), but the college I wanted to go to cancled their arts program for preformance arts only (there went 4yrs of schoolwork done in less than 2yrs for nothin meh!)

I love how expressive anime eyes can be, oh and Sharalee, if you need more examples on anime eye styles just google Anime Eye Images xD and you'll get TONS!! Or if your making a certain character, look up the name of the character (for example google "Maka from SoulEater" or "Isanami from Brave 10" ) and you'll get plenty of images with that particular character for references =D Thats how I'm making my cosplay outfit for Isanami for the upcoming anime convention I might get to go to =D

Thanks "Tenitsu" your eyes are really neat! That helps to see it.  Well it's coming out OK I guess but not as good as yours.
Wow that's to bad you didn't get to finish your Schooling. Maybe you can take it somewhere else.

OK back to the Poppet.  Wink

Each person makes their own things unique =D I cant wait to see how good yours look! Glad my quick sketching (and thankfully my half finished poppet) could be of use =^.^= Doing the whites of the eyes before doing the actual eye itself helps tons because then you dont have to color in the white highlights of the eyes itself, when you could just color around them =D
