Hope Solo Paper Dolls? Yeah, that happened.

It’s finished, baby! Now with even more swagger. You know, the thing about already being a subculture kid is that you can fully flesh it out however you like. No one will judge you more or less than they already do. If you are artistically inclined you can ignore doing traditional landscapes and skip straight to paper dolls of soccer players.

If you aren’t in the fandom-know then you might not get the lolz about the Starbucks and BlackBerry or the Game Face option or Hater’s Tears. Oddly enough, the ESPN Boddy Issue cover was the funnest to draw. I started off just with the impression of an image and it solidified pretty tight I thought. Minimilistic and tiny. My desire to draw miniature things is leaving me but it was fun while it lasted.

Behind the scenes: I was watching Twin Peaks while making this. Just thought you should know. :/

Card stock is recommended for best results.


Paper Dollzzz!

I did it! Mostly. I need to tighten some things up, and printing on card stock really is a must unless you like warped paper. Oops. General presentation too. I was surprised how well the alternate heads worked. Snug. :) Got a game face version and a smile to go along with the kinda casual look in the base.

Still working on the paper dolls.

Progress is being made! I am liking everything but that damn dress. Put too much time into it to throw it over, but I am going to have to go back and do repair work I think. Oh, and the dress needs some shoes. The base layer has TOMS which just won’t work. I HATE doing shoes. I am in the zone though so of course it is way past time for bed. I don’t suppose work would accept Paper Doll making as a good excuse for being zonked tomorrow. It should be. I am down to only a few vices now that I have this illness.

Needs to be fixed:

  • That dress!

Needs to be done:

  • Dress shoes
  • Starbucks coffee cup
  • BlackBerry
  • Sounders paraphernalia
  • ESPN magazine
  • Super secret item
