Wrong proportion

At last I almost finished sculpting the head of the doll but found that the proportion of the head turned out a bit bigger than I thought. So now I have to change the body a bit. Don't know if I will succeed but I will try. If it is all not in proportion then I will just think it is a whimsical doll so anything goes and be content with that and put it down to learning curve. I wish I had sculpted the head first and then the body. I forgot that the head gets a bit bigger because we have to add all that clay to sculpt. Anyway here is a partly finished head. Still got some work to do on it. I watched a video on sculpting by a Ukrainian doll artist called Annadan and you can see her work here http://annadan-doll.blogspot.com/  They are beautiful.  I followed her method even though she was talking in Russian and I could not understand what she was saying but just by looking at what she was doing I sort of did it. Her doll's are big compared to mine so I found it a challenge to do such a small face. My doll head is only about 2 inches long. Next time I know that I have to first sculpt the head and then the body 😀

  1. Your paperclay doll head looks nice. I understand you're dilemma of proportions. You can always do another body or like you said the doll will become a whimsical doll and there's nothing wrong with that!

    1. I have modified the body a bit so I am hoping it will look better now.

  2. It must be very difficult to get the proportions right, but I do like what you’ve done, and I’m sure it will be beautiful when finished.

    1. Thank you Barbara it is taking long as I have to wait for the clay to dry each time I add something

  3. She's looking beautiful, Shashi! It's the same with art — always more difficult to paint in details when working in a small scale.

    1. Yes and while I was trying to get detail I dropped the head and now she has a bit of a snub nose😀

    1. I have done paper clay a bit but it has not been to such a small scale. What was I thinking when I started this I don't know😀
