I decided to "paint" these in Photoshop. I'm working more on defining a style for myself (more on that at a later date...) and thought this would be a good project to hone some of that further. Like most of my projects, this started as a sketch.
this board contains all of my influences for this paper doll. The process for creating this paper doll was very much like the walkthrough of Akinyi. I was also lucky to find some open source clip art for the frames as well.
Overall, I'm really happy with this set. There are a few changes I'd make, such as better contrast. Sometimes things look great on the screen but print a little darker. Just something to think about in the future. I hope you enjoy this and all of the other fantastic paper dolls in this issue.
