A special "Thank You" to Stefania Morgante of  Gufobardo for the mention on your blog!! I am honored and constantly humbled that people appreciate my work enough to take the time to mention me on their blogs.

Hi Elena,

Thank you and I'm flattered that you like my work.
I don't know what a dottee doll is but the best advice I can give you is to tell you to read and study alot of anatomy books. Check out some artdoll books too-I personally like Katherine Dewey's books.

I am a sculptor and muralist that now makes one of a kind (OOAK) artdolls. I sculpt every one of my dolls out of polymer clay, I make the armatures, i sculpt every detail, I design and sew their costumes, I make and dye their wigs, I make the eyes out of glass or white jade, sometimes clay. I write their stories too. I don't use any molds.

This fairy baby has a fully sculpted head, but the features are not entirely human, the eyes, the pout, the tiny chin, and the ears (especially the ears) are exaggerated to look cuter and more elfy or fairyish.
I will sometimes use a photo for a particularly difficult expression.

I wish you the best of luck and I hope this helped a bit.
