It’s a MAN! Well…sort of. The following conversation may have occurred.

Me: Look. I’m trying a guy paper doll.
My Male Friend: That’s a guy?
Me: Yes.
My Male Friend: He’s kinda girly.
Me glaring.
My Male Friend: But his clothing is cool…
Me: Uhuh… keep back peddling. Then we’ll talk.

So, I redrew him, edited him and gave him manly strong man arms. He might not be like… the ultimate in masculinity, but considering I haven’t even tried to draw a guy paper doll in… um… seven years? Since high school anyway, I’m fairly okay with how he turned out. I agree his pose doesn’t scream MALE, but I wanted him to go with the Pixie dolls and match them to some degree. He’s like a male Pixie paper doll.

And my critical guy friend made up for his criticisms by suggesting the name Puck for the series.

This all began because I got a very sweet email asking for a paper doll for her son who wanted a boy paper doll. And since this year is about be trying new things with my paper dolls, I decided to go for it. My plan is to do one per month for the year, though I have to confess that most guys I know just wear jeans and t-shirts. It’s making for really boring paper doll clothing drawing, hence the steampunk paper doll.

    Love it! I think he would be more manly with a squarer jaw. Otherwise, I think he’s great!

  2. Sarah Boye says:

    Well, wait, squarer chin? idk, I guess his jaw is very square. lol

  3. Monica says:

    I love him!

    I know, boys/guys/men wear the most boring clothes ever!
    Try a Regency time period for a guy paper doll. I like their clothes in that period. More diversity.

    Awww- he’s totally a boy, and cute too! Maybe my little boy will play along now? Any chance for a pirate boy?

  5. Ana says:

    i like him too but the proportions on this arms seem really off, but maybe it’s just me

  6. Toni says:

    Hmmm, I like that you have a guy. Just a thought… maybe do a version with a broader, square chin and less girly lips and eyes? Make his mouth wider and thinner and his eyes either flatter or rounder. I don’t know if that makes any sense…
