Things have finally settled down enough around here that I enjoyed a few hours of drawing today while the girls slept. I started work on the highly requested Boy Doll. I think I’m going to call him Brother Doll (but would love to hear some ideas from you on that).
I thought I’d share some of the process with you as go:
So here is my final sketch…as you can see from my eraser marks, I was toying with shorter shorts and longer socks but ended up with this.
Next step is to trace final lines using my trusty light board
Here he is…
However, as you can see, something is missing…the poor boy needs some HAIR
I came up with four styles:
Afro…don’t love this one..I will be tweaking and changing
I want to do FOUR more hairstyles. As you know, I don’t have any boys…so those of you who do or can think of any other styles that would be appropriate for a boy doll PLEASE share.
To give you a little incentive,if I use a hairstyle you suggest, I will send you a FREE print-it-yourself boy doll with your suggested hairstyle. Please don’t be shy!
