Probably my only #Inktober . At this rate of 1 ink drawing a year I'll have enough for the whole month of October in another 28 years lol. Just don't draw much anymore, which is fine. I'd rather be crocheting. My son turns 1 in 12 days. Just need to add water color.
My last #selfie of 33. Had to make it a magical one.
Sharing hair secrets.

New doll. I am working on a pattern write up to publish eventually. I'd like to create several removable outfits to go with her. Here I came up with some cute shoes. Until I figure out other clothing items, I'm having fun altering baby onesies and other fun fabric. I've got tons of halloween fabric I can't wait to use on future dolls.
True to fashion of most artists I know, I'm working on many projects at once some of which are for others. I've been feeling under the weather for the past week or so. Today I felt like working on a little doll to cheer me up. What do you think of her so far?
Hair has been one hurdle for me when it comes to making dolls. Something clicked with this one. Think I got it 😊 I deem this finished.
I had time to sew on a tutu before work <3
Update WIP pic. Miss Dollie has eye lashes, a nose, ears, even a little blush. I've been toying with the idea of altering newborn onesies until I get better at coming up with my own clothing patterns be it for crochet, knitting or sewing. Though the outfit is unfinished, I'm digging the look of it so far. Doing it by hand since my machine is not yet set up. Don't already adorable onesies make for just as adorable doll clothes?! 😍
So I've been working on developing a doll body for humanoid dolls I'd like to make to use as my go to shape. I've had thus image of how I want it for years but never felt skilled enough to figure it out. I've been experimenting and this is my third prototype if you will.

May I say how pleased I am with this version of my doll? I'm 99% over the moon happy with the shaping of this. Aside from a few tweaks, my next challenge is figuring out how to design and make clothes, and make pretty hair (the biggest bane in my doll making). Again, the color change is purposeful so I have a visual as to how much yarn I've used.
I've been working on a lot of projects but nothing post-worthy until now. Here is my first attempt at a one piece doll crocheted from the feet up, no parts are sewn together. I've got this vision for 18 inch humanoid dolls in my head. This prototype needs a lot more tweaking but it's a start. Overall I'm fairly happy with how it came out.
One  of my first OOAK art dolls of my own design. I've posted her before but I'm working on getting better photos of my creations with my lightbox. I dub her Miss Koneko, she's the Koneko Kawaii 💙 mascot.
