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!!!

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
" 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.


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

and then experiment with hair.


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.


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 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.
