AN IDEA I HAD


Last night I came home, excited to work some more on my little sprite.
You probably cannot see the difference, but I added a bit more to her
eyes and some more color wash to her face.....and I stopped to let
her dry and to decide on her hair.

You see, this is where I stumble. I usually love them without hair!!!
Crazy.

Mr. J. comes home and takes a look as says......."hmmmm...throw another
ear (imagine??!! 'THROW'!) on her and she's done!"

Well, after giving him that incredulous look...........head slightly cocked to the side
(translation = "You're kidding right?!")

I said........"well, she doesn't really need to have the other ear THROWN on as I know that
her hair is covering it"...........and without hair she will seem to be an alien!"

Then is shakes his head in an understanding way and says
"Oh..........you already know what she looks like in your head.........I see"

And that's it, really.
I know what she is supposed to look like.
Translating that now, is the challenge.

SOOOOOO....

I am taking her to work to scan her in the computer and print her out
a few times

and then experiment with hair.

ISN'T THAT BRILLIANT?!!!!

Now, I am so sure I did not just invent that little idea.

But I thought I would share it here because I bet there is someone out there who would benefit from this brainstorm.

I'll let you know how that works.

Later.



Still so much to do to her face.

I think that scanning her and experimenting on prints is the smartest thing to do! And I don't thin you're crazy - I love her without hair too. An alien elfin! Why not? Will you show us your hair experiment scans?

Zorana - I WILL scan the hair testing...how fun!

I do actually like her without hair and many times that is the case. When I made the piece for my sister I totally loved her before hair. Not as much WITH hair.

Thank you for your visit and your kind words.

Men! They don't have a clue what's in our head. I'll be wanting to see all the experiments.
