I finished Bell’s chest piece and started with her left arm. But now I am a bit undecided about the choice of motif for her right arm. I was thinking maybe a pin up or a lettering. Then again she’ll be a fan of shirts with slogans, and she’ll be a bit more flexible with statement shirts. Or I’ll go for a skull or flowers.
In the meantime I’ve been painting and redecorating my studio, and my arm muscles are sore. I didn’t like how the wall color turned out and decided to do it all a second time. I always have to put everything back into working order, and it was pretty exhausting. It took up the little free time I had, so the progress on Bell (Raccoon Lara) is a bit slow. And sore muscles make working in this super small scale even more difficult.
I am so looking forward to my days off next week. She’ll get her face eventually :).
I already posted the first steps of the chest piece. It’s finished now. As my friend Lorraine (balljointedwoman) pointed out, I better start sewing lots of low cut tops…
She made a white crochet top for me, I have to try it on soon to see how it looks with the ink. It should set the colors off quite nicely.
I had so much fun with these that I would love to do something like the raccoon in human scale… Maybe Sy Choi wants a chest piece. Haha…

I finished the other arm as well.
I painted her face as well, and I don’t know if it is meant to be part of the sculpt or if it was accidental, but she has a dent on her right cheek. Which makes it very difficult to give her an even blush.
