Hey guys I'm back to DA and I'm sooo happy cuz more dolls are coming up! It's been a crazy autumn - all this work and no play made me a dull boy, you know   . But the winter came and I plan to make something very different this time   . Also, the big event is coming up  - the World Doll Exhibition in Saint Petersburg will start Desember the 20th and I wil become the Special Guest, presenting my Russian collection to the public. So good to see you all again! I hope it will be a pleasant winter =)

I love your work! I make art dolls too but they are cloth. I started making them in 2014. I love the creative process of drawing my doll designs and then seeing it come to life.
Your dolls are so realistic; I can only hope to make dolls that can come close to your phenomenal work.

Have a great day, you awesome doll artist.

Sorry for delay! Thank you very much! I love your work! Practice is everything, I'm sure you can make anything you want, but it takes time =) Took me 27 years to reach this level, frankly =)

No problem! You're welcome!
I'm glad you like my work too. Yes, I agree, practice is everything. I've been making dolls since 2014 and even then, I learned from a book and then slowly adjusted it over the years to fit my style. Someday I'll be able to make realistic dolls kind of like Lisa Lichtenfels. She lives in Springfield, Massachusetts here in the USA, so I guess I could always write to her or something asking for advice. Her work is as phenomenal in cloth as yours is in clay. Not sure if you heard of her, but yeah, she too has worked up quite a repertoire of dolls.

Thank you for your reply; you're a great artist. And I appreciate your words of encouragement. :)

I was completely blown away with Lisa's work! She is simply the best =) and her way of making fabric faces is one of a kind, but I'm sure you will achieve all your goals with patience and practice! It is a traditional art and we have to take it slow, much like working in a gym or playing piano =) Sorry about my lousy English but I do hope I've wrote something understandable :lol:
