Florabella close up

I made the actual Florabella doll over the weekend. I'm quite happy with her, especially her face and feet.

A few things I need to do differently next time: the hands look wrong somehow, although I can't exactly put my finger on why. I need to figure out how to attach the head in a more flattering way. And the arms look kinda weird which is rather annoying, but I'm not sure how to fix that.

It is strange to go from making softies that are not "humanoid" to making softies that are. But as a first attempt, I like her. I'm thinking of making softies inspired my Modigliani's sculpture: the extremely elongated arms and legs...

A couple more pictures of Florabella here.
