And these last few weeks, it’s been much more thinking than working 🙂
My Doll Adventure: At 20 episodes, we’re about halfway through the story. These last weeks I’ve brought the stories together, which means that they need to mesh going forward. Next week, I’d like to get back to Camellia, but there are about to be some big changes on her set, so I may have to flip her story with Rosie’s.
Underfoot: I don’t mean for the Underfoot characters to follow a real story track, but I do want to finish up their opening sequence before I launch them out into the world. So, that’s been the main focus of my planning. Once that’s done, I should be ably to knock out a picture or two from their story whenever I hit a lull in My Doll Adventure.
The treehouse: This story is probably not going to launch until next year, but the set is complicated enough that I may need that time to figure it out. The general idea is a group of kids up in their treehouse, and then adventures that take off from there. Because it’s a big set (large enough for 4 1/4 size dolls to fit into), and because they spend so much of their time there, I’d like to use some of my learnings from the stop motion class into practice.
So, as you can see, lots and lots of things to work on. So what did I spend last night doing? Playing with my doll’s hair. In my defense, playing with her hair is largely playing with her character. But, really, it’s playing with her hair.
The one thing I want to guard against is making Amy look too old and too polished, so I’m looking for hair that makes her look young and like she doesn’t care how she looks. OTOH, I don’t want to push her so far to that side that she ends up looking like a young boy. So, here’s what I tried. First, the no’s
Which left me with the possibles:
And, after all that, I ended up right where I started.
So, it seems like nothing got done, but actually I feel now like I have the right look for her and I’m ready to move forward.
