Grrrr. New Camera.

Learning curves are sometimes fun.  And then there's now.  I already LEARNED the whole camera thing!  (Yes, inner self is whining, and Mr. Miyagi will be along soon to give me a lecture.)  Today I spent way too much time trying to get clear pictures of my current wip dolls, with very little to show for it.  Here are at least some faces.  Tomorrow is grocery day, and maybe dog haircut day, so I won't get to sewing dresses til this weekend. 

But for now: six new dolls and one that I re-sculpted and repainted.

There are always clowns in every family photo...



Three brown eyed sisters...they look a lot alike til they're sitting side by side.

Remember Joseph?  He got a new face.

My goofy Googly and a Coleman Walker Doll I found on Ebay.

Wasn't trying to make Izannah doll features with this one, but she does bear a resemblance.

A few Izannah Walker Dolls had blue eyes...had to give it a try.

    1. I'm glad you think so, Dixie. Maybe I've been too close to them for too long, because all I can see is what's wrong with them and needs changing!

  2. They are fabulous!
    I don't know any artists that aren't over critical of their work.

  6. Big changes. I see you evolving in your Izannah's. they look much more like true Izannah dolls. the bodies are super nice too. You really have been studying and putting it to good use. Wonderful job. All the dolls look so good and have a much older feeling. Love them all

  9. Lovely, lovely, lovely. That's the first word that comes to mind when looking at your wonderful Izzy dolls. Getting them all clothed should take awhile. Have fun sewing this weekend.

    1. Big improvements. I like your previous dolls, but these seem to have reached a new level. They have that "I am old and serene" look to them... sure they will look even better dressed. J. Ann

  15. Thanks everybody. Not looking at them for a while did help--I'd seen them too closely for too long, and had begun to lose sight of what I was after. But now I like them again. :~) And they have (some) unders now, so they're not nekkid.

  16. Whatever your experience with the learning curve, keep at it!

    I've loved watching the evolution of your dolls … they just keep getting more beautifully complex, skillful and expressive ~ like you, imagine!

    These latest dolls are simply gorgeous!

  17. My goodness 7 beautiful dolls and yes I do think that the Izannah look is showing lots and lots. I do love looking at your dolls. Do you have them all dressed yet? I find that I like making them more than dressing them. Shame on me.
