AEDM Day 3-Doll Sketch 3

My attempt at drawing Ninnette, a hard plastic doll from the 1950s. Once again, I didn't do her justice, and once again, I ran out of room for her feet, but that's ok. I had fun trying and the shading practice is good for me.

Her hair is platinum, and she has a faded pink bow in her hair to match her dress which has a floral cotton top with a sheer beige skirt with pink rick-rack on it. She is 8" tall and much cuter than my sketch.

However, I'm proud of myself because drawing with a pencil has always been a huge challenge for me, partly because I didn't enjoy it. Since loosening up with all the doodle drawings, I now enjoy pencil sketching. Look for some color to be added soon somewhere though. :)

Love how you drew the dress, the folds on the skirt and the lacey top.

I like your doll drawings! Drawing a doll a day from your collections is a great way to tackle the AED challenge.
