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…
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.
These are amazing!! & thanks for the link
That was so fun to look through, great gift idea site, thank you for sharing!. I thought this was a cute inspiration for an alternative Reborn.
That is awesome!! Thanks! Those are way more artsy than what I do… If I show my husband he might have a nervous breakdown.
WOW! You are a woman of many talents…no wonder your babies are so beautiful!
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.
Thank you so much!! Art has gotten me through a lot.
So cute!! Isn’t giving people handmade gifts the best? Another really great website is www.cholyknight.com. She does a free pattern every month and has an Etsy for other patterns! She has great instructions with pictures and tips.
