Man and Beast-06-21-07 Dano Doll
Study: These are the pictures I'm working with for this doll of my pal, Dano.  "Oh you mean the one where I look like a janitor?" he asked. What? I love that picture.
Rough Draft: I had a raw male body already made so I studied the pictures and sculpted a rough draft portrait of Dano.
06-22-07: Eyes: Putting in the eyes. For an example of this technique done large please check out Eyeball cane Demo
06-24-07: Sleeve Pattern Index: The Easy Breezy way of making a sleeve pattern out of waxed paper. This is the start of how to make a shirt pattern for an uncured figure.
06-24-06 Bodice Pattern Index : After making the sleeve pattern you can make the pattern pieces of the rest of the shirt by going around it.
06-25-07: Pants Pattern Index:  Making a pattern for pants uses the same tricks as making the sleeve or bodice patterns. Specifically, if the seam goes UNDER a part of the body, the seam edge is drawn as a curve going OUTWARD.

One of the difficult things about this web section was preserving the modesty and dignity of my friend. The things you could do with a nude figure of someone you don't like just boggles the mind.

As I work on the Dano Doll I'll add new web sections. Until such time here are some relevant tutorials.
