♥ Portrait Sisters ♥ Jocelyn & Stephanie get hair - Part 2

Here's the girls all wigged! They are really starting to come to life now!

Here you can see how Jocelyn's hair progressed.  Stephanie's hair was finished the same way.  Their hair still needs a good final styling and clean up, but that won't be done until the very end after they are dressed.  Notice the tiny fringe hairs around the hair line.  They help to add realism to the dolls.  They will also be refined at the end.

One last look at Stephanie's cute little face!

Portrait Sisters - Wigging 101

Here is a photo of prepping the viscose to be applied to the dolls.  I will start with Jocelyn and then wig Stephanie.  Each girl has a medium brown color hair in 2 ponytails (pigtails without the braids).  I chose to blend the hair colors as their color was in between 2 colors and also I feel it adds realism to the finished doll, especially with portrait dolls.  I will be posting step by step photos of the hairstyle as it progresses.

The hair on the left has been blended from the colors on the right.  It is actually more brown that it seems in the photos.  You can see the realism that is achieved by blending the colors.  It has more depth.

♥ Portrait Sisters ♥

Here are some early photos of the 2 portrait sisters I am currently working on.  They are all grown up now!  I think Jocelyn & Stephanie are coming along nicely.  They look a little odd with bald heads, but I have been in the process of wigging them so I will take more photos once they have their hair.  I won't post their actual human photographs until they are completely finished!

Portrait Doll Sisters

I have been working on 2 portrait doll sisters.  My dear customer has been waiting a very long time for these dolls.  I am really not making portrait dolls anymore for orders, just creating them when I get an urge to do a particular person.  I will be posting photos of them soon.  They are little cuties dressed in identical sailor dresses.
