A New Printable Paper Doll Series is Coming…

So, I have a rule.

Well, not a rule, but a guideline. I don’t start a new series unless I have at least six paper dolls ready to post for that series.

Six paper doll sets is a good minimum for two reasons.

Reason 1: Can I stand this style enough to draw six printable paper dolls?

Reason 2: Even if I decide I hate it, at least there are six and six isn’t a number to be ashamed of.

The Sprite paper doll series is going to replace the Pixies & Punks paper doll series in 2016 and I’ve been working on it quietly for quite a few months. It is basically the same two poses redrawn- something I have wanted to do for ages.

The series will feature both male paper dolls and female paper dolls. The plan is to go one for one- so for every female paper doll there will be a male paper doll in the same theme. For example, if there is a male elven warrior than there will be a female elven warrior for the next post. If there is a female mermaid than there is a male mermaid for the next post.

The first paper doll to go up will be Zachary. There are two different version of Zachary at the moment. One is a cyberpunk version and the other is a more normal casual version.

The second paper doll will be Yukimo who also has a casual version and a cyber version.

I plan to name the paper dolls in reverse alphabetical order.

Right now, I have drawn Zachary, Yumiko, Xavier and Willow.

It is also my plan to reuse the same paper doll faces over and over again- not unlike my Mini-Maidens and Marisole Monday & Friends.

So, there maybe five or six Yumiko printable paper dolls one day. That day maybe a ways off.

Each of the paper doll set titles will include the name of the paper doll- so  these cyberpunk sets are named Zachary Goes Cyber and Yumiko- Digital Girl.

And that is all I really have to share about that so far. It is an ongoing project, of course.

    1. Yeah. I used to have a “months worth” of posts as my rule, but then I realized that a month wasn’t really a set amount with my new posting schedule, so I picked six.

  1. i need to learn that rule so hard. brand it on my forearm or something.

    i love Yumiko’s face ~ she’s lovely! and i’m definitely excited about the one-to-one male-female ratio. i know you feel challenged by the male dolls, but i think you do an awesome job.

    i’m always envious of how well-planned your work is. i’m such a dang pantser. : D

    1. See, it’s not as well planned as it sometimes appears. I mean, I have lots of things in my desktop that have never migrated onto the blog. And I have plenty of base dolls I drew, inked and then decided I didn’t like.

      So, I made up the “number of posts” rule to help me commit to things. I actually wish sometimes I was a little better at being impulsive.

      1. hahaha ~ somewhere there’s a happy medium. every morning i’m like: today i’m going to finish a full plate of X. and then i immediately go draw and paint something else entirely, leaving all of my plates in what feels like an unending stage of incompleteness.

  2. I like this doll it’s really nice especially Yumiko it’s so pretty,
    I don’t usually like this style (like Pixies and Punks) but I really like this one!
