I have joined a fun little challenge over on Dollstreet Dreamers. There is a curious little doll called a Dotee. It is a smallish doll approximately 3-6 inches in length. It is typically rectangular or oval in shape. The idea is to sew these by hand. So, you draw out a simple shape cut it out and sew it together and then stuff it. The faces are usually drawn or embroidered on. Well, not being a conformist i decided to draw my faces with colored pencil. How I did this was similar to how I find my apparition type faces. I just looked at some mottled fabric and found funny little faces in it. I pulled the face out with colored pencils. I initially decided to do this because I was sorting my large collection of colored pencils to organize them and to see what I needed to replenish. Anyway, these little things are the result. Oh, and you are supposed to put a little tail or dangle thing on too as well as a loop for hanging purposes.
This first on here is influenced by my goblins. As you can see I had a fun time with him. Kind of reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are.
Dotee number two is a little weirder in style. It is just a little whacked looking.
The third dotee is more modernist in flavor. A tribute to all of my modern painting idols.
Hope you enjoyed my little diversion from the sculpture. My fingers certainly don't like me now. I have lost my sewing callus since I haven't sewn anything in over a year. I am having to nurse some sore finger tips.
