    Scamper Scamper Scamper..looks around… YIPE YIPE YIPE.. tail between my legs chill running up my spine… stops.. looks back.. WOOO HOOO..hehehe

    the overall effect is just a wowzer.. all four are just stunning and blend so well.. they are so beautiful.. and even though they all have the basic shape and form they all transfer their own emotion into the viewer… very well done and amazing use of digital painting.. looks like you used charcoal and pastels..very very well done :) (and I favor each one.. :)

  • Oh my I could ask for more to hear (read). You don’t know how much this means to me. Making more than two with the same position, from the same face it’s getting harder and harder every time to be unique and get another idea and tones… I really still feel weird looking Valerie, I can’t still “see” if it’s actually good enough to be with the others xxx Pretty nervous again for the result again :)
    Thank you very much xxx

    Thank you my dear very much! I’m still not sure if I’m gonna do another one for this series – it may be the last.

    Dear little doll series started out smoothly and it’s getting more and more wild with every new one…

  • Wo, I didn’t expect to have this feedback – she’s the “Kayako” style one. Not that she looks like or that I got inspired from her, but with all these Japanese and familiar horror movies we saw these days I wanted to make her SO much eerie that she would be amlost frightening. Mwwwwwwwwwwwah!

    i just read the description of the dollies… and i find them even more unique now! you did such a great job with them, fantastic work!

  • It was a huge suprise to me (to paint digitally) and it did worked really well. In each of them I had a perfect vision of style of how they’re gonna be so I’m very pleased.
    It means a lot you left me your comments, I do appreciate it a lot!

    Excellent !!!! She has a great stare- I do love the pale skin with the wild purple hair, so unmistakable a Rouble girl :)))
    The series look wayyyyyyyyy cool together xx

  • You did want a dark one. Right? hehe
    Agree she got the most of my style generally – she’s too classic for my portofolio :D Thank you honey, it means so much!!!

    I love a series, agree with Anita ~ it looks way cool/tres cool… the more I look Eugenia is my fave (I love her expression), but they are all great. =)

  • WOW, THANK YOU!!!! Oh don’t be afraid to tell – Eugenia is my tatally fav one and I choose this name (from the list of doll names I found) and gave this cause of a old special friend I used to have. She was in this style (and I’m pretty sure she’s like this now too) and I just adore it for many reasons. Totally the style that I love too xx Thank you :))
