Paperdoll Collaboration 2017 - Night at the Oscars

I lied.

I was going to make a fourth Valentine's paper doll.  It just didn't happen.  2017 has been a pretty best/worst kind of year so far.  Lots of good things are happening to me, and a lot of less good things are happening around me.  So I didn't get around to a fourth doll.  There's always March for a quick themed set...

Today is the next part of the on-going paper doll collaboration project with Paper Thin Personas, Pop Culture Paper Dolls, and Miss Missy Paper Dolls.  This month's theme is a night at the Oscars.

Personally, I don't care about rewards shows at all.  I do, however, LOVE fancy dresses and elaborate gowns!

My dress is based on a Dolce & Gabbana dress.  I can't seem to track the dress down online. That's fine.  Part of the reason I loved it was because it was a fairly simple black dress but it was paired with fancy, Renaissance inspired jewelry. Sometimes I create things in Illustrator and bring them into Photoshop -- that's what I did here with the jewelry.

And because I can be my own worst critic (it's the best way to grow as an artist!!), that hand is the worst.  I knew it was bad when I drew it ages ago, but seeing it now....the worst.

I'll update links to the other paper doll collaboration pages as they go live, so look for that!

  1. that hand is not the worst! not at all! hahaha
    love love love the jewelry! and the simplicity of the dress works well paired with it! : D

    1. I was pretty excited to make that jewelry, honestly. It's something I'd totally wear :)

      I appreciate that you don't think that hand is the worst. Hands and feet are the things I notice most in my own drawings (and others!!)

  2. I love her hair and that hand is just fine. The cape is super sophisticated, too.

    1. Thanks :) I added the cape (from the same collection) at the end, partially as a page filler. But it looks nice & I like it!

  3. What a great dress! Now I'm speculating on the best color to go with the fur.

    1. The dress I based it on was black with gold jewelry and a brown fur. But hey, I encourage you to do whatever you want!!
