Toe Dance in Your Doll Family

This black and white newspaper paper doll is by the artist Laura Brock.  The fairy ballerina doll named Greta has one outfit with a matching hat.  The panel is discolored from age.  No date, but around 1930's, possibly a winter month.  One more week of school and I'm done with that for a while (til Jan 22)

Paper Doll Collaboration 2018 November Military

This month's theme was military.  I decided to draw a realistic modern version of the cameo uniform on the right and a more 'hollywood' interpretation on the left aka what I think of when I think of a soldier; a tank top, cameo carpis, dog tags and combat boots.  I drew these at school, with the new Adobe CC, but when I got home, Adobe CS5 could not correctly open the file, so I couldn't modify them at all.

Copies from Brenda Starr Newspaper Comics




Some time ago I acquired a large lot of newspaper comic paper dolls.  These sheets were part of the lot but they are only black and white copies of the originals. These are from 1947 and 1948.  Might be fun to color.

This is a copy from Jack and Jill magazine featuring 2 pages stitched together.

Last Inktober 31



Inktober is now over. Day 31 was a Free spot, to do any theme desired.  I did goth lolita inspired mix and match pieces. My next project?  Perhaps a Thanksgiving paper doll?  I have to work on school stuff though.  Had fun with this challenge and plan to do this next year too

Inktober 28 29 30



Inktober is just about over. Can't believe it's HALLOWEEN!  Day 28 theme was mermaid.  I tried to make it different from the sea nymph I made for the mythical creature theme.  I tried to create some mix and match options and also did a scallop mermaid gown (pain to draw). Day 29 was zombies, so lots of torn clothing and blood stains.  Again, focused on mix and match features.  Day 30 was vampire.  I kept drawing spider webs for some reason...  Mix and match tops and bottoms along with a blood stained dress.  Today is a mystery/free theme.  Can you guess what I'm doing? It will be posted sometime tomorrow or Friday.

Inktober 25 26 27




Still going!  October is almost over and I managed to keep up with this project so far. Day 25 was Super Heros.  I decided on a star theme.  The first hero is Atomic Star, a classic super hero.  Then the second is Star Dust, a more modern slightly sexy hero, and finally is Secret Star, a spy like super hero similar to Black Widow.  Some boots and a mask to complete the set. 
For  Day 26 elements theme I did a fire dress, a leaf/wood nature dress with bark corset, a periodic table of elements shirt, a pair of capris with clouds for wind, and a raincoat with rain print for water along with rain boots.
Day 27 was Zodiac so I included a dress with zodiac symbols, a shirt with the zodiac circle, a pencil skirt with the constellations and another top with the Libra symbol (I'm a Sagittarius but Libra seemed like the easiest to draw).  Also included is a Chinesese style dress called a cheongsam with the Chinese characters for the Chinese Zodiac (I traced these so they would be as accurate as possible), as well as a pair of baggy bell bottoms with stylized animals of the Chinese Zodiac.  Finally I'm not sure about the last dress because it's based on the Zodiac Killer symbols, might be considered tasteless but I feel like it would be something sold at Hot Topic around Halloween.  She also has a pair of slippers.

Paper Doll Collaboration 2018 October Halloween Costumes




Halloween is next week!  But Christmas stuff is everywhere in stores right now... Poor Halloween!  I drew three classic Halloween costumes.  A witch with broom, hat, and pointed boots, a vampire with cobweb accents, and an Egyptian with wig/crown.  Overall I like how these turned out.  I'm surprised how quickly I was able to finish these, considering I've been focusing on my Inktober Project.

Inktober 22 23 24




Starting to catch up with this project.  For day 22 I did two pages of outfits.  The theme was wedding and I love drawing wedding dresses., also some veils for the gowns.  Day 23 was magical girls.  Originally I was going to copy costumes from characters like Sailor Moon but instead I decided to design my own magical girl outfits.  And finally day 24 was Hogwarts/witch.  I drew classic school robes, uniform without robes with extra causal graphic tee and a more traditional witch costume.  Later today I will be posting my monthly collaboration project

Inktober 20 and 21



I'm a bit behind, I'll admit.  Busy with school, crazy work schedule but keeping at it. Day 20's theme was Angels and Demons (Devils) so I drew one robe outfit with wings and two devil costumes.  For Time Period, I did costumes from various eras including 60's mod, 20's flapper, 80's work out chic and rococo gown.

Inktober 12 and 13




I planned on posting these yesterday but I was in and out of the house all day.  Friday the 12th's theme was Sports.  I don't know why I chose sports, I don't like sports.  I only made two outfits.  Soccer/Football and Race Car Driver.  For the 13th the theme was Space/Robot.  I did vintage inspired retro Jetson's like mix and match pieces.  I imagine the colors in metallic silver and bright neon accents.
