New WIP's(work in progress) and a Creepy Cutie Ophelia!

Hi again, I'm back with a few pics of what I'm currently working on. This first picture is a WIP of a piece I'm doing for the Bear and Bird gallery show Me!Me!Me! in April. This is NOT what I actually look like, she's a younger and better looking version of me: my alter ego. I have to finish the piece by this weekend!?@#AAAHHHHGG!! I love working under pressure!!


The next pic is a WIP for a great group I am now a member of ADO, Art Dolls Only,  its a challenge with a Shakespeare theme. I chose to do a Creepy Cute version of the Ophelia from Millais painting, she was such a tragic character in Hamlet and in real life. In my version she still wears the silver dress and the violet garland around her neck but she has already passed. 

As soon as the challenge is over she will be the first piece for sale on my new Etsy shop!!. I will sell most of my challenge pieces there, so please visit my shop when you can. 
This is not the finished piece at all-this is just a rough idea for me to plan out the materials and the pose that I will do. This is only her actual face which still needs a lot of work.
I'm also working on a little orphan boy!!
Bye for now-Rosanna

These are going to be fantastic! I too am doing Ophelia for my ADO piece :) I can't wait to see these finished. I also work best under pressure and with deadlines! Have no time to procrastinate which apparently I'm quite good at!

Big hugs,
Sprite
