This is the beginnings of my first full sized moving limb doll. Its arms are a bit lumpy by the wrists and I need to work that out. It is only something I noticed once the photo was taken. Cameras don't lie, and all that. Because it will be a model for the doll clothing I make, I plan on making the hair rather gender neutral. I have started working the wig already and can't wait to do the face next.
It is such a wonderful moment when a doll is at this stage. The personality is just starting to come through. I have started waiting a few days after I get a doll to this point to see if I can sense the features before I apply them.
