So that grainy, blurry image above is a picture of my circus paper doll in Paper Doll Studio, Issue #104, published by OPDAG. Well, the one of the left is mine. The one on the right is TOM TIERNEY! I know it really isn’t that big a deal, and that it’s just random placement in the magazine, but my art is next to the work of Tom “legendary paper doll artist” Tierney. I think it’s made my year.
Anyway, here are the circus dolls to print if you want to. The magazine added the background (which I love). I’ve never been great with backgrounds in any of my art, and I think this worked well. I wanted to create a watercolor doll this time instead of a digital doll. Sometimes having a brush in hand feels better than a digitizing pen. I’m rather pleased with it, honestly. And I hope everyone else is, too
