I think one of the great benefits of the internet is that it has created a world where people are willing to share their work. I try to visit all the active paper doll blogs I am aware of and comment on them as much as I can.

I love seeing what other artists are working on like Julie’s amazing bunny project from last week and Miss. Missy’s super cute Easter paper doll.

Boots has been working on a Catwalk Couture paper doll fashion series where she has been drawing the designs of some of the great contemporary designers. I was inspired by her work to create an evening gown that could have come off the runway.

I was heavily influenced by the designs of Marchesa one of my favorite evening gown designers.

Hazel’s hair is based on this beautiful natural hair up-dos like this one and this one. I’m worried it looks less like a natural up-do and more like a turban, but maybe I’m just being hyper critical.

Since I am not black, I always feel a little self-conscious when I draw things like natural hair styles.

As always, if you love the blog and want to help it stick around, think about becoming a Patron, following or liking it on Facebook, telling a friend about it or leave a comment.

  1. This is beautiful. I think her hair is great. It’s very bold and I love the texture.

    And thanks for the shout out. I can’t tell you how hesitant I still am about sharing my art online. Ultimately, the rewards outweigh the risks.

    And I’m sure I speak for many of us when I say I wouldn’t be blogging about paper dolls without your blog out in the world first 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing your work. I really enjoy playing around with the different dolls. As an African American your work with natural hair on the different dolls has been amazing.

    1. Thank you. I do try very hard to research the natural hair styles I draw before I draw them and I am always working to get better at hair in general. Hair is hard to draw, but I believe it is important to keep trying.
