WIP Alien Child for Storybook Character Challenge

I just wanted to share my progress on my First attempt at a doll for my Cloth and Clay Doll Group. The last one never was finished as she was just a mess. This child looks way to adult for me but she is what she is, all cloth, gesso and paint. I have never painted a face before and from scratch is a challenge for sure. I'm sure when she gets hair and clothing she will look a whole bunch better. I'm still trying to improve her mouth but..... practice, practice, practice, in time I hope to improve. Back to work May 15th is the Deadline for this challenge.

Hi Marilou, I think she looks great! I think her lips look nice too. She has a very soft looking face... I can't wait to see her all done. Have a nice week! hugs, Jennifer

LOL Marylou, I can't tell you how many 1st time projects that I thought were going to be easy ended up in the trash. And stuff I thought was going to be hard, turned out to be easy. I painted a bird and branches the other day on a nightstand that I am so proud of. I honestly thought I would hate it. Your doll is precious and I can't wait to see her finished. I am sorry I haven't been by more often. Life is crazy right now. Hope you had a fabulous weekend. xo Lynn
