I have always have been fascinated with dolls with darker skin tones. When shading with the pencil, you actually have to work backwards and put in the highlights and then add all of those colors that the eye can see, but can only detect as colors when you are trained as an artist. I used blues and purples on Peppermint's face. He's made with the same pattern as the other elf dolls I've made recently.


His hair is a cap of crocheted yarn that has been combed out.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.
