I've been trying to play around with digital whimsy dolls lately (using Tam's work at willowing for inspiration). I have no natural ability to sketch or draw at all, so doing it digitally is a little easier. I made this one for a wonderful friend, Patty Anne, who has emotionally saved my bacon more times than I can count. She's just always there with just the right thing to make you feel better, and supported, and loved, and that is a fine fine thing indeed. So anyway, I wanted to make her something that showed her even though I can't do much digital drawing yet, she's such an incredible blessing in my life. I used Edeena Cross's Art Doll 2 Template freebie (with the April Deviant Muse in the shoppe!) for the torso and tail shape. Used Evelyn/Finecrafted Designs water from Your Inner Voice, some water droplets from kimla, watercolor brushes by Ron Deviney, and a style by Thaty Borges, and the scales started out with a free style called 'gone fishing' which is significantly altered. Rest i kind of cobbled together using shapes I made in photoshop.
