Doll sketch



I'm back!  Oh wow!  The paper doll convention was SO much fun! I had a great time.  I will post pics soon.  So for now, here's a black and white sketch paper doll of a small doll and outfits.  She's got a lot of tiny dresses, 22 if I counted right.  Glad to be home, I'm exhausted.

Paper Doll Collaberation 2018 June Bride

Where did this month go!  I love wedding dresses.  I love drawing wedding dresses.  Above are two beautiful bridal gowns.  The first is a short vintage inspired dress with flower applique.  The second is a long trumpet gown with beaded detail and a bouquet.  It's a lot easier for me tor draw beading and lace by hand, on the computer it's a bit harder because I don't like to copy and paste... I want a hand drawn look!  I gave her a short veil with some glitter detail.  I did one more sketch of a big Cinderella style ball gown but didn't have any time to do the computer lines.  When I tried on wedding dresses, I was very surprised how heavy the things are!  Especially the ball gowns! This may be my last post for a week.

Kellogg's Krumbles Scotland


Kellogg's Krumbles was a cereal.  This is from the back of the box and features two cut out figures with traditional outfits from Scotland.  The boy has 2 outfits, the girl has 1.  The texts says "The Scots are a handy race. Men and boys wear kilts (short skirts) and go with bare knees all year 'round.  They dance the Highland Fling with great skill."  This is from around the 1940s.
