Every paper doll I do is a little different. Today’s Pixie Paper Doll has a few things that are different from normal. I’ve been experimenting with how I draw the Pixie faces, so you might notice her lips are distinctly different from the other Pixies. I’m not sure how I feel about this new style, I think I’ll stick with it for the next few (since I already have their heads drawn this way) and see how I feel. Feedback, as always, is enjoyed and very useful.

So, I got an email a few weeks ago from a nice young lady name Megan who asked for:

Pale
Blue eyes
ginger
Female

Style:
Commando
Outdoors
midevil

And, debates of the spelling of Medieval aside, I was intrigued. What was a Medieval outdoors commando? I wondered and how would one dress, anyway? And so, mostly to forefill my own fascination at the concept, I drew this Pixie set. Free advice to people who make requests, the weirder the request, the more likely I am to take it on.

A couple things that are different about this Pixie than what was asked for. I did not give the doll blue eyes (mostly because I forgot) and the set is only medieval in the vaguest of senses. Still, I think she came out pretty cute. I do rather wish I’d remembered to give her blue eyes, per Megan’s request, so I hope she will forgive me that oversight.

Robynn is named for Robin Hood, of course, who robbed from the rich, gave to the poor and was generally a cool dude, though did not, necessarily exist. I had a great love of Robin Hood stories when I was a child.

  1. She is really cool. I am not so much of a fan with the new lips, sorry. Isn’t she missing a quiver of arrows? I didn’t know if she just has them stashed away where no one can see or what! Like I said before, she is really awesome and I would totally wear the two shirts that sandwich the knife.

  2. I agree with Kiri that I’m not sure I like the lips. They look better in black and white and sort of wierdly flat in color. I do really like this set though, its neat and all the accessories are cool too. Plus it’s great to get the Pixies in black and white and in color.

  3. Wow… the anti-lip sentiment is intense. Perhaps I won’t be doing any more faces like these for the Pixies (though I am going to use the ones I have already drawn, I think)

  4. I don’t think the lips are bad, but that they would be cuter just a tiny bit smaller and not so close to the nose. The proportions feel slightly off. I am still going to download her and I hope this doesn’t discourage you from experimenting in the future.

    Audience is a fluid thing. Look at all the modern paper doll artists out there, even though they can have very differing styles, every one has an audience that adores their work. Right now it seems most people here aren’t into the lips, but who can say there won’t be others who really enjoy it. Keep feeling it out for yourself.

  5. It I really loved the lips style than I would keep them no matter what other people thought, I have some mixed feelings about them myself.
