Francine WIP by Sleetwealth Francine WIP by Sleetwealth
This is Francine an antique life sized child mannequin I am moding into a partially ball jointed doll. I bought her for my B day in April ^-^

Here I have drilled eye holes for glass ones, over sculpted upper and lower lids, refined nose with a dremel, resculpted mouth. narrowing of temples with a dremmel and some patching of holes. I am also working on her body. Ive made her anatomically correct ,added nipples , a belly button and bit more of a rounded tummy.
She is inspired by Francine Descartes the rumored mechanical doll that replaced Rene Descartes daughter who died of scarlet fever. The doll was thrown in to the sea during a voyage.

you should see Blade runner since its so iconic. if you have interest in androids and the blended line between us and them, conciousness.. and thought provoking sci fi.

One day I'll watch it with my friend, which I'm sure he'll be glad to oblige me with.
