Last time I was telling you about a new doll Gemma, and now I want to show you her assembled. Ta-dah! – Gemma is standing on her toes (a bit below about them):

I continue working on the doll, and little by little, I put my ideas into life. While working on the doll image, I often imitate it by putting different comprising elements to the doll, and take mock-up photos to be sure I’m moving in the right direction, and if it needs something else to add or change in the original idea. As a rule, this process really draws me in, and I can contemplate a future doll for a long time, re-creating the image from my head into reality, to feel deeply the image and to “live” with it. In the following photo, I put locks of hair to the doll to imitate the hairdo.

The face painting is still in process here. I’d thought up a bright image for Gemma, thus the make-up should have been appropriate. I was making such a rich and saturated painting of lips and nails for the first time, and as for the lips, it was important to me to get a combination of a quite dark cherry- burgundy colour with a very moderate satin finish. There are many nuances and tricky peculiarities in work with bright red colours, but in the end I’ve succeeded with this task.
For the image I’ve chosen the ‘bob’ hairdo with a slightly shortened fringe. It gives Gemma’s face and eyes openness and highlights her character’s naughtiness and the slight female cunning. The photo shows the wig in process before the haircut. Black hair colour really suits her!

And here is the ready doll’s portrait. Gemma is quite a complicated persona, she likes to be in the center of attention for sure! She adores glance and shining, so she loves putting on expensive jewelry with stones.

I got interested in the idea of combination of porcelain with jewelry inlays of artificial gemstones about 2 years ago (remember my sketch?), and at last I’ve succeeded in putting it in life successfully. Gemma wears a set of necklace and bracelet incrusted with outstanding Swarovski Zirconia gemstones. They highlight the girl’s brilliance beautifully, as well as the black filigree of the jewelry looks marvellously on her tanned body and complements her fatal image perfectly.

Also, today I’m presenting new feet for high heels to you.

I like the look of female high-heeled feet very much, they have something magnetic. Probably partially because high-heeled footwear that implies such bended feet, adds femininity and makes legs more graceful and elegant. Besides, these feet are so playful!

What is remarkable, I’ve succeeded in making a good balance, and the doll can stand on her toes without a backing. Gemma demonstrates it perfectly in the first photo, balancing playfully on my working table. And no tricks with strings!

The rest of the high-heels photos can be seen in the Flickr gallery.

As the work on Gemma is not complete, she will take a bit of rest being a nude, and before setting about to her outfit, I will finish the last girl of the current mini-series of nude dolls Familia.

Greetings. I want to congratulate you for such a exquisite work, the sculpture is just outstanding.

I would like to ask you if you can post pictures of the back view of your dolls for reference, I'm investigating about new articulation for action figures and this could be very helpful, by studying articulation in dolls and other action figures, I created new articulations for the figures I'm working on. Hope you help me, thank you.
