The Vessel: Another Tattooed project
I’ve finished a new tattooed doll, titled: “The Vessel”.
She is really pretty and has the longest, most beautiful mohair of any of my dolls i’ve ever made. It almost reaches her feet. Unfortunately I don’t have this length available for orders yet, as it is very rare and i was only able to get a little bit, which i’m keeping for my one of a kind projects.
This doll is also featuring a different style facial and body blushing. I decided to avoid using black in her face up and replace her skin tone blushing red with a dark brown, the colour I usually use for eyebrows and lighter eye tones. Needless to say i was a little bit nervous about how it would turn out. However i liked the results. Her face looks very light and fresh and her body tone is closer to the actual human skin tone.
I don’t prefer it over the red though, probably because i was never after ultra realism in my dolls, but rather subtle surrealism mixed with realism. A stylized look over a realistic.
I’ve started to sculpt new doll faces to add to my nude collection. I’m a little bit bored of the others and crave for fresh beauty.
