my paper doll by certifiedstrange my paper doll by certifiedstrange
I always loved playing with these as a kid, so I thought it would be fun to make my own! Whaddaya think?

note: the girl has that outline around her because she's pasted onto the paper (I had to trace her figure from a bottom sheet onto a top sheet with a homemade light table involving a lamp and a glass table, then transfer her onto the second sheet with the tracings)

staedler pens + tria markers + gauche paint + colored pencil (just on her cheeks & joints)

Hehe this is soooo adorable! :heart: i used to have a whole shoe box filled with paper dolls...i dont know what happened to them...they disapeared from my closet. when i moved i looked everywhere and never found them. it made me sad, because i had some really cute ones, that used to be imported in a small arts and crafts store in my town. ;_;

it makes me remember!

i bought these really tiny paper dolls with yucky candies when i was in grade school...
they were about 3 inches tall and i ended up making clothes for them too...
there was an ashfall here about '91 coz of one of the volcanoes...
my paperdolls (i also made tiny houses so there was like a village on a table
got ashed totally....had to throw most of them away...

She's so adorable!!! I love it! I never had patience for real paper dolls when I was little, but I think I like them a lot better now! Yours is absolutely wonderful! She's terribly cute! I really love her curves and little feet!

I'm thinking I'd love to have those outfits for my own! Her face is drawn especially well, I like the expression you've given her.

what are those darker spots on her shoulders and elbows, though?

just a style I picked up and thought looked cute. You can see it on some of Jen Wang's stuff (she's a huge inspiration of mine, as I'm sure is obvious in this piece)

Check out her stuff at [link]
