The Reader

This is The Reader. I started her a long time ago during Akira Blount's workshop. I kept her because I like her face too. I didn't know how I wanted to finish her for a long time, but continued to look at her and wondered what she would be doing. Finally it came to me, she looks like she is deep in thought while reading a book. Hence her title.

Her face is needle sculpted ( from my pattern). Now I have to make her body, arms, and hands. She will be a stump doll, so she won't have legs. Sometimes that's easier and maybe I'll get her done. In a way, I'm looking forward to making the book she will read and she will probably be standing on books.

Thanks Kim. I will be working on her body pattern today and hope to have a pic up by Sunday.

Catching Up

Really working on keeping up with the sketching. I got a head cold on the way to South Haven and then when I got home it turned into a sinus...
