I love my online dollmaking friends. we belong to a group called Art Dolls Only. the challenges they come up help me creatively to think outside the box. in this case the june challenge was for a black and white doll. i love drawing in b/w, and almost right away i knew what i wanted to make. then the vision expanded and i was creating two dolls instead of one! i'm finding that i like sculpting these little clay faces - it give me more dimension than my typical handpainted canvas faces change is good. here's the end result. i also love the little painted clay boots!
