I don't know if someone has suggested this or not (because I haven't read all the replies), but you really should consider making more dolls and selling them. You could make some serious dough on ebay with a/some custom job(s) like this...

Could I ask what pattern you used for his face? Also which Pam Gross pattern for the body? And third question....would you be willing to sell a copy of the clothing pattern you drafted? I find myself continually returning to this project just to look at the pictures!! The face truly facinates me. I have been trying to obtain a truly masculine head and face since I made my first cloth doll a couple of years ago (A poppet)
Yes I'm a very late starter! I'm a die-hard crocheter with 15 grandchildren and my first great grand was born 6 weeks early on June 11th. But he's home with me and his mom now and doing fine.
Looking forward to your reply and hoping to see more of your work in the future. You are very talented and I agree you could make some serious cash with these dolls.

I used the Pam Gross basic man pattern for the body and face.  The basic doll has an inner body of stuffed muslin which is them covered with a skin of cotton lycra.  You sculpt the face with rolls of stuffing that you place between the two layers to make cheekbones, brows, ets.  So you can shape the face pretty much however you want.

I attached the hair with a felting needle.  It took a while, and you have to jab around in different directions to get the hair to hold, but the end result was pretty good.  If you go this route, just be careful with the felting needle.  It REALLY hurts when you stab yourself with one of those!  (I'm speaking from experience here.   Shocked)

I'd be happy to share the clothes patterns with anyone who wants them.

I'm sure my boyfriend might love me a little more if I made him this!
You're so talented!!

Your past is just a story. And once you realize this it has no power over you.

If you made one of these for your boyfriend, he'd better love you more!  He would soooo owe you!    Grin

I'm not one for dolls, but this is excellent.

Visit my etsy please! I'd love to have feedback from other crafters!

His face and arms are terrifyingly great!
Such wonderful texture for his arms that really gives that tattoo some oomph~
