That’s interesting I wonder how many ladies gravitate to what reminds them of their own babies! Maybe that should be a new topic! I bet a lot of us do… Of course not everyone here has had babies, but it would be a neat topic for those of us that do!
I agree with Helen 4 and 10, I don’t care for the dark swirly hair , but love 4 looks very real.
Your very welcome Emily, I always admire your work!
Beautiful! I especially love the first and 4th one.
I love your style…the dark swirly hair is like your signature lol. Do what you like best, there’s bound to be a buyer out there who will fall in love.
Thank you for that Izzy! I haven’t had problems finding buyers, and they are always over the moon with my babies once they arrive home. I guess after everyone liking the older style I am second guessing myself and not feeling as good about it. I appreciate your encouragement. I really do enjoy the dark swirly hair the best. It’s my favorite part…
They are all lovely. Is #4 combi (a little rooting on top of the paint)?
Although I understand questioning yourself and feeling a bit uncertain at times, I’d say don’t second guess yourself if you like what you are doing and you have regular sales. What more could you want?
Hey, the bottom pic is my Rosebud! LOL. Glad you liked her hair.
@allhisgrace I can’t honestly make a choice as to which I prefer - there is the incredible hyper-realism type of hair, and yet I am ALSO drawn to the vivid coloring of #6. I guess I appreciate them both.
I agree with Izzy’s sentiment; I think you shouldn’t abandon your “signature look,” some people can do the realistic hair but there aren’t that many who can do the vivid coloring like you do, it is sort of your style and I am drawn to it.
Well I’m going to be different because I like #3, #4 and #6. They all have their place. The #4 wispy is a common look for babies and one we can easily relate to. The darker heavier styles are comparable with darker skinned bubs and one’s a little older. I love your work!
Wow you sure can paint hair! All of them look fantastic. I tried but failed, so I do not paint hair.
Thank you Simone, I’m sure I’ll continue painting in my usual way, since it comes naturally. It’s easy to second guess myself when I get too concerned about what everyone else likes …
Thank you Missly and Denise.
Her Josie prototype was amazing.
My absolute favorite is 3, but I love 6 and 7 too. And there’s something really appealing about 11, maybe because my babies had very little hair when they were born and it was a dark blonde. So basically I love all of these! You sure know how to make it hard to pick just one!
My absolute favorite painted hair of yours @allhisgrace is number 3, 6, and 7.
9 and 10. I’m a fan of the soft look.
I would love to know what colors are used in mixing the fawn blonde that Emily did Rey’s hair in.
I am definitely drawn to sculpts that resemble my children as babies! Full lips & chubby cheeks, I’m in love
Beautiful hair painting!! My favs are #'s 2, 4, and 10 Although, these little babies do tend to take on their own little personality so some hair styles are just fitting
I do not think I’m very good at painting hair. Stripped one of my own like 3 times and finally rooted him. BUT…I did this one I was very happy with. He’s a Taite I sold.
wow…beautiful painting…I’ve just purchased a tutorial book on hair painting. I hope I can be as good as you.
