Working On Evelyn

Though Evelyn is not scheduled to be delivered for quite some time, I’m working diligently to get ahead of my deadline and I am making very good progress.

I love stepping back and looking from a distance 

Sweater is almost done, shirt is done, skirt is

roughed in and hands are placed. Still working

from the top down. Already see changes that

need to be done to what I have done already.

Although I have a very good foam armature, there are so 

many modifications that are made to it. The placement of the

right thumb baffles me at first.



Sometimes you must look at the context of something 

to see its proper placement. Severe modifications to the

sweater are made.



The head is created seperately. Here I step back and compare 

proportions in the face to those of the photograph.  But doing

This from one side can be misleading.

I need to do this from the side as well. Oh, and I have to keep

putting the head on the body. There is nothing more infuriating

than to have a perfect head and perfect body that are not in

proportion to one another.
