this is an amazing piece, i do prefer smooth skin but the texture on the face is interesting and gives it somewhat of a paper effect. I love it ^_^ the facial structure is somewhat of a little girl and i just love it ^_^ so amazing and inspireing
Thank you. the tooling of the skin is a style choice like a seamless painting or one where you can see brushstrokes. Its under appreciated and rarely done in realistic art dolls. So , I champion it. On some I do smoothing
Thank you. I find utterly smooth skin dullish in most cases.nothing catches your eye. though I probably make less money than those who smooth smooth smooth. Ive been told that my work looks rushed or unfinished.but I like to leave "hand" to glance off light.
I would have to disagree with those people then Doesn't look unfinished to me... it looks rough and edgy which really adds to the feel of the piece.
Smoothed out skin can be beautiful too, but would not work as great on this kind of sculpt. She's just not supposed to look silky smooth like a factory doll. Sometimes imperfection can be perfection too.
