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.

Little Owl and His Friends

This is a copy from Jack and Jill magazine featuring 2 pages stitched together. I'm not sure of the issue or year.  The pages have a native american named Little Owl along with a canoe, teepee, and little animal friends.  This is not quite a paper doll, more of a cut out assembly toy.  The artist is Peggie Geiszel.

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

My prompt list for the month can be found here.
