  • Missing Something…

    I decided to make my previous little guy a significant other, but she is missing something. I feel like the waist is blank, should I carve something else (what?), or just paint a pattern to the dress maybe? Also her mouth looks funny to me. I'm open to suggestions.

    you could put and apron on her.

    the face needs to be more rounded - it's a little flat...making the corners of her mouth protrude.

      Maybe add some lines for a stripe or flowers.

        Do a google search and look up facial proportions. I have found a few diagrams that have helped me over the years. As people we key in on the face instinctively. We notice things that are off a bit. It's ok to distort for effect once you have the basics down.

        Hope that helps,

          Leave her alone. She is old. Her family has come and gone for thousands of years = she has seen it all. Maybe more definition/relief in the arms.
          She reminds me of many of the female figurines found in archeological sites.

                  You know, it was intended to be a dress, so I figured she'd didn't need feet, but now that you say it, some feet and a little ankle showing might do the trick. Maybe even just some shoes poking out and of her dress bunched up over them would look better.

                    Don't mess with her character. She's fine.
