Over the holidays, Rachel and Boots and I chatted about creating a collaborative paper doll project. I gotta say, I wish group projects during my school days went this smoothly! We decided to create a black & white paper doll series using one body and with different faces. We'll be posting a portion of each doll at the end of every month according to a theme. If all goes well, there will be a massive paper doll at the end of the year! So yay for that!
We decided I would draw the base doll. That's actually one of my favorite parts of paper doll creation! I found a few reference photos and we settled on one from SenshiStock. I LOVE her poses and find her a constant source of inspiration.
With every project, I try to learn something or test something. This time around, I decided to test a paperless method. So the doll was drawn in ArtRage and lined in Photoshop. It's entirely digital.
The final drawing was inked in Photoshop. It's something I'm still trying to perfect.

We'll each post our themed outfit on the last Friday of every month. This month's theme is the year we were born. Be sure to visit Paper Thin Personas for Rachel's doll and Pop Culture Paper Dolls for Boot's doll!
