My first Reborn baby! (Pic Heavy)


#61

I drew the hair before added matte finish, then I did more highlights and shading after the matte. Amazing! It’s easier to draw with the texture but I think it looks smoother before.

These are beautiful!! You are incredibly talented. I could tell you had experience in drawing by the way you did the eyebrows and hair on your doll. I can’t wait to see where you go from here! You’re going to do really well selling your dolls.

Have you ever seen mohair stuffed animals? They are so awesome. I want to try my hand at making them someday. There is a whole world of teddy bear creators and collectors similar to the reborn community. I haven’t delved in yet, but I thought you might be interested? https://www.teddy-talk.com/

Let me know if you want to try this together! Haha like we need another media…:wink:

I have been super interested since I collect teddy bears! I’ve seen the techniques where you trim the fur around the nose and thought it was brilliant. Here’s some of my stuffed animals, I generally make custom gifts for birthdays. I even made one as a special gift to go along with my baby! (A simple but adorable one)

If you like to sew, you can download free templates from a sewing magazine at http://www.simplysewingmag.com/downloads/
Here is a dragon that I made from a free pattern! There aren’t any instructions but I’ve made enough toys to figure it out.

I love your little sewn animals! ! I make little fabric dolls and plushies too! Once upon a time I sold them, but now I just make them as gifts. Thank you for the pattern link! I will definitely be checking it out. :blush:

She is so pretty I also had that problem with my first reborns. I am.still learning all the tricks. Also you can put little oil like jojoba on your hands and work them throug the hair.I do not like the conditioner onnyhe hair.
