This is the fifth tween paper doll! I'm having a great time creating these! I wanted to create a set of basic clothing to mix and match with the previous four sets, so today's paper doll is mainly jeans & some neutral shoes. There's a little color, too, just because I couldn't help myself.
I like to learn new skills when I can, and this week I came across a mandala tutorial for Illustrator. It took some time & I learned some new techniques along the way. I created the mandala in Gianna's wardrobe using the tutorial. It wasn't perfectly symmetrical but a "hand-drawn" texture brush in Illustrator helped a great deal. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to use my little mandala!
Also, Nia and Gianna have the same skin tone, so they can mix & match shoes. I'm trying to be a bit more sparing in the skin tones I use. My fashion dolls have somewhere around 15 skin tone variations and that's a bit much....!
