Not nearly so scary looking now, is she. (Whew...!)
The library where I work is closed on Mondays, so I had all day yesterday to work on my doll. It did take nearly the entire day to get her skinned, assembled, and sculpted, but she is such an amazing sculpture. She was worth every second!
I'm sorry the photo doesn't show much detail -- white on white is always tough -- but I am thrilled with her shape AND her face. The overall shape of her skull isn't quite as rounded as I'd like. If I *ever* attempt this VERY labor-intensive pattern again I will tweak the head pattern to give her a wider and deeper skull. Now that I have a clue to what I'm doing though, maybe next time won't be quite so challenging.
(I wish I had taken this as a class. Aside from the fact that I would love to meet Pam Grose, it would have been SO much easier to work with the designer instead of trying to puzzle it all out by myself.)
Nest step is gessoing and painting. I had been planning her costume as well, but her body is go gorgeous I might not want to cover it up, LOL!
