Fairy Lela

This is Lela. I drew her and then colored her with water colours. 

I took the photo with my iPhone! I really like the camera!

P.S.
I'm still deciding on what to do with the blogs. :)

Hello!

So, after a nice summer of at least one post a week, I took a break for roughly a month. Now I should be back, also just one post a week. Its manageable for me with all the activities I have going on.

I have been contemplating one thing though...

Should I move this blog?

Okay, I have two paper doll blogs. 1) thebestpaperdollblog.blogspot.com. That's the one you are on right now. 2) thebestpaperdollblog.weebly.com. And that's the one I use for organizing everything and keeping it in a nice, easy place for you, my reader, to access.

I like both blogging/website platforms. Really I just wanted your input in the matter. Feel free to comment after you voted!

Mountains Drawing



This is a mountain drawing I did for school. I like it. It sort of is reminiscent of Robert Frost's famous poem The Road Not Taken.

Super Baby Mario and Goonie Bird Drawings


Look! It's Super Baby Mario! And a Goonie!
I love the Mario games; but these two came from Yoshi's Island for the Gameboy Advance.

Out of these two, I think my favorite would have to be...Baby Mario. It just turned out so well and it's really pleasing to me. hahaha

Anna -- A Drawing


This is just a little something that I thought would be good enough to post. I drew it ages ago in for a class and it has sat in my sketchbook ever since.

I obviously tried a new perspective and I'm not quite sure if it turned out or not. I think for a first time it's pretty good!

I just edited the image again and put the green everywhere behind her. I definitely think it helps give it a better look. I prefer the all green one than the white one I think! I might go back and colour in the green with pencils on the original later.... ;)

Amethyst Gown for Janelle


Click here for Paper Doll

Here is a formal gown for Janelle. I'm sure she will go to many fancy parties and be the belle of the ball!

Because of the goofyness of my scanner and image editor, I'm not 100% sure that it will fit her properly. I sized it up as best as I could, but there still might be some problems. Do let me know.

The Lost Accessories "Unearthed" -- For Skye Paper Doll


Click here for Paper Doll

Look what I found! A bunch of unrelated accessories and a shirt.
I pulled them from many different papers of Skye's--they're mostly doodles and just random items that I decided weren't good enough or important enough to blog. But they made it anyway. ;)

Special "Bonus" Blue Fairy Princess Outfit for Faerie Paper Doll Cephia --



Click here for Paper Doll

This is a special outfit for Cephia! Remember her?

This is an actual outfit in real life. My one friend (years ago) wore something very similar to this, and I took a picture of her and told her that I would make it into a paper doll. Usually when I say something like that I mean that I'll do it in more than several months. It's been at least two years. Somehow the picture survived and I managed to get it onto paper. It just took longer than it should have.

Lord of the Rings Outfit II for Janelle


Click here for Paper Doll

This is the second Lord of the Rings Outfit for Janelle. It turned out way better than I thought it would! I hope you like it Natalie! Thanks for your suggestion too. =D

Monica
P.S.
I found out that there was some trouble using the comment box and that it wouldn't post the comment. So I did some messing around with the settings and it should be working now. Please let me know if it doesn't!

Fairy Drawing -- Taka



This is a fairy drawing I did probably two years ago. I've always liked it--it turned out just as I wanted it too. So I thought it would be something good to post for you all. Her name is Taka and she obviously likes magic. =D

Lord of the Rings Outfit -- For Janelle -- As Suggested By Natalie



Click here for Paper Doll

I promised this dress all the way back in September!!! That long ago!

I'm sorry Natalie that it's taken me so long to get this up. I do have another Lord of the Rings inspired outfit coming soon, also for Janelle, so hopefully that will make this all better!! Boy, I never meant for it to go this long.

Neela--a New Paper Doll



Meet Neela.

I drew her just this month. I tried going for a different pose. I still need to figure out all the little ways of drawing for her and making it look good, but I'm pleased with how she and her clothing turned out. I'm just captured by her face--I think it might be one of the best I've done in awhile.

She's very stylized, but that's okay. It's what makes her unique. I had wanted to give her a strapless top for underwear but I had trouble making it look right, so I'm stuck with the straps, which limits my outfit possibilities just a little. But I'll work with it.

I hope you like her! I'm working on some more outfits and some shoes for her, so it won't be long before she has a bursting wardrobe. If I continue to like her, she might join the Main Dolls.

Winter Sweater Outfit for Skye


Click here for Paper Doll

I'm pretty sure Skye has the most clothing out of all of my dolls. She's my favorite.

This is a late winter outfit. I had trouble with it and I'm not sure I like it all that much. Oh well.

Oh--Thank you for all the comments. I really do appreciate them. I am working on responding to them!!

French Houses -- A Drawing



This is a drawing I did a couple months ago of a city line in France. It doesn't actually exist--I drew it from my imagination. I love my imagination. =D
I thought you would like to see it. I also am working on a drawing of the Empire State Building. It's very challenging!

Later--Monica

Hello! Here I am! =DD

This dress is titled "Tuscan Red Tribal Dress." I used the prisma colour Tuscan Red for the colour of it and I just sounded like a nice name. Anyway, enjoy!

Summer Dress for Emi Computer Coloured


Click here for Paper Doll

Since I gained some new knowledge of image processing and colouring, I decided to give it a try with an outfit. Well, this is the finished result! I am extremely pleased with it, and I hope it looks great on the doll. My first *real* computer coloured outfit that looks good!! =D

P.S. Sorry this is a day late.

Hee -- A Kigurumin Girl


Meet Hee. She is a Kigurumin Girl. (A type of Japanese street fashion.) I coloured her using a computer program, specifically GIMP. I use it for all my photo processing and editing and stuff and it works very well. 

For the longest time I didn't know how to take a free hand drawing and paint it on the computer and get it too look smooth and clean. I finally figured out the different steps, and I would like to do a tutorial on it. Let me know in the comments if you like that idea. 

I promise a paper doll outfit for you on Thursday. =D 


Monica
P.S.
I am still working on my other tutorials too! On how I draw my paper dolls and things. They're coming soon.

Fairy Drawing

Here is a drawing I recently did...I do hope you enjoy it. I know it's not a paper doll outfit, and I do apologize. Life has just been absolutely hectic lately. But I have a goal to post at least once a week. I think that is pretty realistic for where I am now in life. I hope I'm not boring you, so just let me know what you think of the sketch!

PS
This is my 300th post!! =D

Ciara -- A Simple Day Paper Doll Outfit


Click here for Paper Doll

Here is today's paper doll outfit! It's a simple outfit, but I hope it works for you all.

Ciara... I've been thinking about ending the series. I've grown tired of her, and I'm not sure where I want to go with it any more. She's sort of just another Skye, only Irish and a redhead. (Nothing wrong with that, mind you.) I just want something new and different. Plus she's a little harder to draw for. I'm telling you this because I would love to hear your feedback on whether or not I should continue to draw for her. Should I be done? Do you enjoy seeing the posts for her? Do you get on this website mainly because of Ciara? I would like to know!!


Monica
P.S.
She wouldn't end right away because I have some posts lined up for her and I don't want to drop it right away.
