All of my dolls are sculpted fresh each time and not made from molds. However I am having a doll cast in resin soon. I hope eventualy to have my dolls available in limited editions.

Oh you should for sure... you'd make a mint... you have an extreme talent. I just started sculpting and wow there is lots to learn. I'll be watching your works for now on... you have a fan here :-)

The jointed doll I am casting is named Vanessa and you can see her WIP shots in my gallery. If all goes well I will make another full doll like one of my child characters. I am also hoping to have a bust ready sometime in the next year. Ive been  trying to get a website together and  in Nov I have some  one of a kind peices showing in a gallery.
 I looked at your gallery and with your drawing skills you should be  a good sculptor too. The same knowledge transfers after a small leaning curve with polymer clay. :)

Oh sweet... thanks for all the info again. Helps bunches. I too am going to try to have a website up by end of Oct here.. it's reallt what I am pushing for. 
I have some comic book titles I am developing and would love to have some 3d representations of my characters created.. so that's what I am pushing to do to. 
Not sure it I'll be able to get some scuptures going by but that portion will be a work in progress. Learning soooo much on here.  Oh and thanks for the complements!
I do feel a good transfer from drawing to modeling right away.. at this point I am creating more cartoony/expressive work and then will go into some more realistic 
sculptures.

oh my... how do you add those textures to their faces?! i clearly see little hairs, and pores... just how cool is it to have such talent ?? :D

the appearance of pores comes from the stippling of the paint and I use a ball stylus and sharp needle for hairs that I draw in the clay

oh, ok ! i'd figured out the brows, but her cheeks look like they have a fine duvet - i guess it's the paint then. thank you so much for answering my question, you just gave me my very first painting lesson, i really appreciate. :*

yes well its Genesis heat set oil paint and the way I apply it is with a pouncing motion with a stiff boar bristle brush. The paint is thicker so you get a stippling that stands up a bit.

it's really cool, - and you are truly adorable ! i guess i'll have to invest in those paints some day, and give it a try. more for the experimenting fun, since i don't think it would have the same effect on a much smaller face. thank you so much for sharing your tips, i don't believe everyone would.

the genesis are good paints since you never have to worry they will dry out as your still working:)
I paint this way on smaller dolls as well but the effect is different. if depends on how heavily you apply the paint as well.

i guess on smaller dolls one would need much finer bristles but still stiff enough - that probably doesn't exist, hmm. maybe try to make it with something else, re-hmm.

perhaps a sponge and acrylic would do the same on a small scale.

I use a 2 in one metal tool and ball stylus most often. Toothpicks sometimes and a sharp blade.
