I like the style of my dolls. I like their simplicity. Sometimes I think I over complicate things, when simple is sometimes interesting in itself. If not there would be such a love of Waldorf dolls. However it's always fun to try something new too. After a lot of trial and error I finally completed Sadie, my new realistic preemie BeBe. She has a lot of features I have never included in my dolls, such as realistic/sewn on ears, fingernails, etc.
I'm really happy with how she turned out but there are still things I want to improve. For example, I cannot figure out lips. I can do fine with the lip is tucked under but I can't seem to make natural looking full lips. I think it is because my painting abilities are lacking. If anyone has any tips for lips please email me or post in the comments.
I also can't seem to do realistic looking open eyes but I'm going to try that again. I'm hoping to make a lot more of these little babies because honestly if I was collecting I would want one of these little ones really bad. In fact, it might be hard to give this one up. :)
