So, my original idea was to make today’s paper doll a little bit latino looking with a darker skin tone than I’ve done with a Margot paper doll before, but I think she rather turned out just looking like she got a bit of a tan. So, next time I’ll rethink the color choice. Skin tones are hard, as I think I’ve mentioned many many times before. Personally, I really like the dark blue dress the best. I think it came out just like I wanted it to.

Stumbled across a new tumblr today, called Paper Doll Central. Beautiful work. Makes me wish I still was trying to keep up with my tumblr. Lots of nice paper dolls there worth checking out if you have a few minutes and want to indulge.

I mentioned last week I was inspired by the Mediterranean ocean when I colored this paper doll. I was also inspired by the idea of not using any pinks or reds, just clean clear cool colors. I imagine Margot walking on the beach, wind whipping through her skirts while she watches ships on the ocean. Then, possibly, being attacked by giant crabmen from the planet Neptune.

Maybe I should have drawn her a sword.

  1. I agree, the blues suit her well. 🙂
    I’m afraid I’m having a hard time downloading her, though… Every time I click on “download PDF” I get a page telling me the link doesn’t exist.

  2. It seems to work for me Nicole. Try emptying your cache and then trying again. If that doesn’t work, let me know. 🙂

  3. Love the blue and white dress! it reminds me of something Elizabeth swan from pirates of the Caribbean would wear! love this whole set!
