Family of Six in the making!

I decided to make a family.Yeppers, Daddy, MaMa and their four chidren..They will be dressed

for the holidays each one..Now I know this is playing dolls, Some thing I have never done in my whole life..Also I'm working on a offering special for The Humbles Arts!
Daddy here he has Green eyes, But I have decided to also re-do his face completely

Daddy gonna re-do his face completely

MaMa sitting next to him, is before I re-did her face.. Here I re-did Mama's face..I'm trying to learn how to soften and shadow.. Still not right but it is better. *MaMa diffently will get a pretty smile*My sweet hubby just told me he liked MaMa's face before I re-did her..Thats cool.*Smack* He said it looked more defined..

I really need a second and even third person to help critique my stuff:)

any volunteers PUuuuULLEEZE!

So far here is two of their four children

Im so proud of you, its not easy humbling and putting ourselves "out there" for help or critique. Husbands kinda dont count, cuz theyre too close and have much to lose in how they may voice their opinions!

I am impessed with your commitment to working for nothing less than what your spirit had in mind. Personally, I think the shading you did the second time was awesome and made a real difference in softening her up. Great job. Isnt this wonderful to have so many talented sisters, friends, artists/mentors so willing to guide us? we are blessed. Im blessed to have you...and yes Peanut ROCKS!!!!cant wait to see the completed family...did you get my email? let me know...thankx...have fun...Hugs, Kat

(((Kat))) well have to tell ya it does really help me when you get the blunt truth about some thing..Done gently of course, but either way when some does critique
its in love and wanting to see that person grow,and also makes them think too about their ithers helped them..seeing your art through some one elses eyes is the best!and Kat I SO appreciate your critique please do any time..Yes Mam' we truly are very blessed!!

Martha said...
